Colors have many meanings. They vary from culture to culture. Different religions may attribute different properties to them. We as individuals may also attribute certain characteristics to colors due to their spiritual nature and how they speak to us. Some people are attracted to certain colors due to their personality. Others are attracted to one color today; a totally different color tomorrow.
No matter what colors mean to you and why you wear them, they empower you due to their attributes. Wear them purposely; let the colors pick you!
