Today we’re looking at the colour BLACK
Black is the absence of all colour. It absorbs all aspects of light. People suffering from low self esteem may use Black to hide their true feelings away from others. Care should be taken in using Black as too much of the colour in clothing and decor can be draining and depressing. It takes only a little black to keep grounded.
Visualization and Meditation with BLACK
Black isn’t a colour that you would traditionally meditate with. Darkness though is an energy. You could use Black as the darkness of night from which light, love and hope springs forth.
To soak up the protective and transformational energies of the colour black stand under a clear night sky in the new moon phase. Feel this colour protecting and ridding negativity.
