Color is a form of non verbal communication. It is not a static energy and its meaning can change from one day to the next with any individual - it all depends on what energy they are expressing at that point in time. They carry codes, taboos and prejudices. Colors are an essential part of our existence, they surround us, we prefer one of them instead of another. In each culture we find different meanings of color that arise from traditions and legends over thousands of years. Clothing, for example, has a color code that classifies groups, individuals and societies as a whole.
