Colour has played a major significance throughout the world and throughout the ages. Ancient cultures worshipped the Sun and its healing powers and looked upon yellow as a warm, inspirational colour. Thoth the Egyptian god (known to the Greeks as Hermes) taught of colours and their healing properties, and both the Egyptian and Greek physicians used different coloured ointments and salves as remedies, and practised in treatment rooms painted in healing shades.
Colours influence our moods, our energy and health, our environment and our personalities. Colours have been used therapeutically (Colour Healing, Chromotherapy) as far back as the Ancient World can be traced throughout human history.
Even those who are visually impaired are able to perceive the vibratory rate of colours, whether in their mind’s eye or through the sense of feel, sound and/or smell.
The reasons we subconsciously select one colour over another may have psychological implications that transcend conscious awareness, as colour carries archetypal elements dating back to antiquity.
