Black is a protective color. It is grounding and calming, especially to extremely sensitive individuals. It activates the magnetic or feminine energies of the body, strengthening them.
Black is the spiritual color for some religions; but it is the color of death for others. It promotes resistance, obstruction, opposition, and enmity. It wards off hatred and negative emotions.
Black is most effective when used in conjunction with white, balancing the polarities of the individual, especially in cases where the individual seems to be losing control. It can activate the subconscious mind which can put life and all of its craziness into proper perspective. It should rarely be used by itself, but always in combination with another color.
Black should be used sparingly, as too much black can cause depression or aggravate such emotional/mental conditions. Black also increases fear, suspicion and paranoia.
