this is an excerpt from an article about the meaning behind colour preference i thought you might find interesting.
using and avoiding certain colours is a way of self-expression; it sheds light on our personality.
healing properties: increases intuition and sensitivity. Works disinfecting and antiseptic. tones the general system. builds the skin. Relaxes sensations of stress.
preference for turquoise: just like the wide turquoise sea you don't want to feel restricted and you don't immediately bring to the surface what goes on in you; emotions can remain hidden. a color for non-triviality, renewal, innovation and inventions, progressive technics, alternative ways of living together, humanity.
what's your colour preference?

Those single stems in a vase always look so good and yet I've never managed to arrange it myself that way yet. Maybe I'm due to treat myself to some flowers and give it a go ;)ReplyDelete
