Colour is part of our everyday life. Just think what life will be without colour/s! I would like to go one day and see the Northern lights! Read here more about the Auroras/e of our world.
Auroras (Polar Lights; or aurorae, sing.: aurora) are natural different colored light displays, which are usually observed in the night sky, particularly in the polar zone. Some scientists therefore call them “polar auroras” (or “aurorae polaris”). In northern latitudes, it is known as the aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas. It often appears as a greenish glow (or sometimes a faint red), as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. The aurora borealis is also called the northern [polar] lights, as it is only visible in the North sky from the Northern Hemisphere. The aurora borealis most often occurs from September to October and from March to April.
Its southern counterpart, aurora australis/southern [polar] lights, has similar properties. Australis is the Latin word for “of the South”.

I’ve always been interested in colours and how colour influences your life/personality or your way of living. You even get children with visual difficulties and through tests, they might discover that the child needs particular colour tinted glasses to read with. Some children will be said that they have the Irlen syndrome.

Colour psychology is the study of the effect that colours have on human behaviour particularly the natural instinctive feelings that each colour evokes. Colour preference is subjective however colour psychology reveals how each colour creates a collective emotional, mental and physical response in people as a whole.
Red for example will create feelings of warmth, movement, ambition, determination and sometimes anger! red may bring to mind sayings that have been passed down through the ages such as ‘it was like holding up a red rag to a bull!’
Cultures from around the world may differ in their use of colour symbolism and psychology for example in South Asian culture it is common for a bride to marry wearing red where as in Western culture a bride traditionally wears white.
Colours in Our Environment
Colours in our environment affect us on a daily basis, they can act as unconscious triggers that influence how we think, feel and react to the world around us. We are able to see around 7,000,000 colours, some combinations can create a clash of the senses where as other colour combinations create an atmosphere of harmony and balance. The ‘right’ choice of colours can create a haven for relaxation or an environment that can increase productivity, stimulate the mind and raise energy levels.Click HERE to read more about this article on the “colours of the soul” site, where you can also click on “Colour attribute” and read about your favourite colour.
