The Color Black

Black is the most misunderstood color. For many people it symbolizes death and evil.
Native Americans thought black was good because it was the color of soil, which gives life. When black candles are burned for positive purposes, this color opens up the deeper levels of the unconscious.
It absorbs all of our excess energy and helps us to "empty" ourselves. When we are empty, we can be a pure vessel to be used by our higher selves.
Black is good for banishing evil or negativity. As I said before, it absorbs all that is around you and releases it into the universe to be recycled for the highest and greatest good of all.
Think about black holes. They are all-consuming. Not even light escapes its voracious appetite. For this reason they are scary to us. We see them as the ultimate destroyer. But black holes contain every single particle necessary for an entire universe to be born! It is in that nothingness, in that death of all we define as reality, that potential for unlimited worlds lies. Amazing!
Meaning Of Colors: The Energy of Black
Black is a paradox. We say that it is the absence of all light but it actually absorbs all colors in the spectrum. The problem is that it keeps it to itself and reflects nothing back for our eyes to process. Technically it contains all light.
When people speak of opposites, it is usually in terms of black and white. Black, and its opposite white, represent polarities. Black absorbs all aspects of light. While white reveals, black conceals. It is linked to the unknown or the unseen. In times of fear and uncertainty, black contains the energy of the threatening unknown.
In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
