I read an article in an alternative health site that the colours of nature are in essence different wavelengths of light= energy, and it’s very healing for us to be exposed to the diverse colours in the natural world, e.g. plants, flowers, and animals. In other words, just looking at them and being surrounded by them is like a form of energy medicine. Being exposed to diverse assortment of colours / wavelengths also stimulates our brain to function at a higher cognitive level.
It’s true that the colours in the natural world are so diverse and has so many different nuances that even if Crayola produced a set of 500 colours, we still wouldn’t be able to recreate them. It would probably be a good idea if you are surrounded by artificial environment most of the day, to go out or to look out the windows from time to time, or place some plants and flowers in your home and office.
I feel it’s not about ‘using’ the nature for our own benefit but it’s about bringing awareness to how we are resonating on such a subtle level with nature and how we are also part of it, and of course, not forgetting to give gratitude to it for giving us so much.
