It is a fascinating journey towards self-discovery, through understanding the meaning of colors that we offer you today.

Colors have deep subliminal meanings, which affect the way we think and reason.

It is a powerful tool that you can use in all aspects of your life: From choosing the color of your clothes, to the colors of your interior decoration, your business or even your car.

Because it is a complex tool, we will present several articles which will allow those who wish to accompany us in this magical universe that is that of color.

First of all, what is color?

On the page dedicated by Wikipedia , we learn that color is the subjective perception that an individual has, of one or more lengths of light wavelengths, with one (or more) given amplitude(s), through of his eye vision.

In summary, it is simply the vibration of light energy.

What is color psychology?

This is the explanation of how colors influence our minds consciously or unconsciously. Colors have an effect on our well-being and our health by influencing our emotions and our moods.

Color affects us all, whether we can see it or not, whether we can feel it or not.

And, although we perceive it differently, at different degrees of intensity, one thing is certain, color influences each of us on a subconscious level.

It is omnipresent, enriches our emotions, our relationships... our lives, quite simply.


Understand the meaning of colors and their psychological effects.

The meaning of colors can vary depending on culture and circumstances. If each color can have several aspects, you can very easily learn the language of color. Mademoiselle Grenade shares some secrets with you here.

Color is a form of communication. It is not a static energy and its meaning can change overnight, from country to country, from culture to culture and from person to person.

For example, a person may choose to wear a red dress one day because she is about to make important decisions or because she is passionate about the day's agenda ahead of her (or about the man she is with). goes to dinner in the evening) but she can also wear this same red dress to express a feeling of anger. This choice may be conscious or unconscious.

Thus, the same color has positive points but also negative points. This is why it must be used wisely and used according to the situation.
