The Spiritual Meaning of Colors in Every Captured Wishes Gift Vessel

How important is the spiritual meaning of colors when you're choosing a gift for somebody?

When choosing a unique gift for someone special, a deep look at color meanings and symbolism will help to ensure the gift is really sending the right message.

What do colors really mean? Have you ever thought about why you have a favorite color? Without even realizing why, we are drawn towards certain colors because of how they make us feel.

These colors have a huge impact on us on a subconscious level, and we don't even know why.

The meanings and symbolism attached to colors varies by culture. For example, most people in North America associate white with pureness or new beginnings, while in other cultures it represents death.

You may describe yourself as feeling blue, meaning you are down or sad, but to someone else blue represents serenity and spirituality.

Why Colors Connect Deeply With People

Every color has several meanings, and the symbolism attached to it affects people in different ways. That is what makes a colorized gift so unique. It shows that you know the person and care deeply about how the colors will be received.

Colors provide a visual expression of our personalities and emotions. So let's examine the spiritual meaning of colors.  

Listed here are the colors of the rainbow, ROYBGIV (red, orange, yellow, blue, green, indigo, violet); many of the meanings associated with each you may already know and we've added a few extra colors you might not be as familiar with or might never have thought to be symbolic or have any special meaning.

This information is extremely useful when giving personal, unique gifts such as Captured Wishes – amazing gifts like you have never seen before!
