The Color White

The Power of the color White from Shimmerlings

White is the color of purity and innocence.  Brides in many countries dress in white as it symbolizes virginity.  White also conveys kindness, in some cultures white it the expected color at funerals.

Like black, white is more a non color than a color.

It is the manifestation of the presence of all color, or the complete energy of light.  White stands for wholeness and completion, in many cultures it also represents openness and truth. White is associated with having a cold quality, but it can provide intense clarity, as it’s energy is fully complete.

White has vibrations that will lead to purification and can be used to clear blocks in your energy path.  It holds the potential to move toward every other color in the spectrum and that is what makes it such a good color choice for new beginning, as well as development in any direction.
Add some white into your life when you are looking to

  • clear clutter and obstacles away
  • begin with a fresh start
  • bring about mental clarity
  • bring about purification of thoughts or actions

Therapeutic uses for the color white include helping to alleviate deficiencies and weaknesses, as well as providing energy and will help lead to self realization.
