It's true...sometimes things are just black and white, and sometimes that can be good! But let's consider for a minute just how black and white (and grey) affect us.
Strictly speaking, black and white are not colors; they are characteristics of the presence or absence of light. Black and white cannot be defined without each other. Black absorbs all aspects of light whereas white reflects, black conceals whereas white reveals.
In symbolism, white is seen as holy, good and whole therefore black inevitably becomes linked to fearful and bad experiences. White is the color of emergence, birth and change whereas black is the colour of withdrawal from definition, of the hidden.
White makes its presence felt whereas black withdraws, refusing to take a stand or be noticed. The energy of white completes, the energy of black prepares.
If you want to become inconspicuous, consider dressing in black. Black clothing can convey the message “notice I am here but don’t invade my space”
White has the ability to clear away all clutter, all unwanted noise. New beginnings and fresh starts benefit from this energy.
Grey is the true neutral color. It is the color of emptiness, lack of emotion and lack of warmth. However, because of this, it can be restful. If it contains a lot of white, it will take on the qualities of surrounding colors, however, if it contains a lot of black it can feel depressing.
Unlike brown, grey has no connection to the solid earth or nature. Immovable stone and cloudy skies reflect the impersonal nature of grey. Grey has a detached, isolated and unemotional feel. Grey clothes can suggest the wearer wishes to remain uninvolved but they can also suggest sophistication.
Top Tip from Angel Therapy Spain. Add a hint of another color to your grey clothing and you will be seen as efficient, well behaved but also having a personality. If you want to emphasize your willingness to comply, wear grey.
Now what do you say to some fresh coffee, my friend!
