Ah, the color white. Timeless, classic, and elegant, the color white helps our mind, body, and spirit in ways no other color can.
Long associated with purity and innocence, the color white’s symbolism and meanings go much deeper – to the very core of our being.
White is the perfect balance of all colors. It brings the dark (negative) into perfect harmony with light (positive). In this, white symbolizes equality.
White is the color of new beginnings (birth) and the wiping away of that which no longer serves (clearing negativity internally as well as externally).
Some would argue that the color white can “feel” cold and empty. Because it is the prevalent color used in hospitals and doctor’s offices, white could seem sterile, almost “harsh”. Originally, however, those in the medical profession chose to wear white so as to convey the messages of hope and healing to their patients.
White gives us an immaculate, blank slate upon which we have free will to “draw” whatever life we want to create. In this, the color white symbolizes freedom. Moreover, whatever we choose to draw upon our clean, white slate is born from a place of purity.
If white is your favorite, the “color psychology” of white includes the following:
- You tend toward being super conscious of your appearance and will go to great lengths to make sure your home, transportation, office, and self are immaculate at all times.
- You are likely confident and have a great deal of self control.
- You try to be fair but during times of stress tend to be very critical.
- You respond better to persons and situations that are clear and have no hidden agendas.
