Sybmolism of White

Continuing the series of articles about color, and it's symbolism in artwork, it's healing effects, and what your reaction to it might tell you about your personality. The color articles is all about is WHITE...

White is technically not a color, instead it is the light of all colors. White is considered the color of purity or purification, simplicity, innocence, marriage in western cultures, death in eastern cultures, snow, innocence, youth, good, and sterility, wholeness, completion, and enlightenment. White is considered to have a cold quality to it.

Enjoying the color white could suggest that you are seeking simplicity in your life. It can also be indicative of purity, naivete, innocence, and what could have been in ones youth. Being unrealistic about you ideas of purification and purity can be very disappointing.

A person who dislikes white might to have a mostly or only interested in tangible and “realistic” things, rather than anything beyond understanding or seeing, or illusions. They know and accept their imperfection and have no desire for perfection.

When you want to bring about purification of your thoughts or actions, desire to remove clutter and obstacles, need a fresh start, or would like some mental clarity are all great times to bring some white into your life.

This is only one of a series of articles on the subject of color. This will be my final article about the individual colors and their symbolism and healing qualities..
