COLOUR IS A POWER WHICH DIRECTLY INFLUENCES THE SOUL.
Colours have a tremendous positive impact on our wellbeing.
The first known theory of colour was developed by Aristotle (384BC-322BC), who believed it was sent by God from heaven through celestial rays of light. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) preferred to meditate in a lavender or purple-coloured light, it is said.
In 1666, English scientist Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) discovered that when
pure white light passes through a prism, it separates into all of the visible colours. He organized his findings in a colour wheel showing the three "primary colours" separated by the three "secondary colours".
In the 1700’s Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) suggested in his “A Theory of Colour”, that colour and light have subjective and emotional aspects.
