Going into the water is good. If only for the effect that blue has on the psyche. Word of Max Luscher and his Color Test …

History teaches that a color is a source of emotion. But above all a form of language. Red, for example, “speaks” of values ​​like passion and sensuality. White is related to light and in Western culture to the divine figure. Black on the other hand takes the thought down into the darkness of hell in the world of darkness. And the blue, the color of the sea, with all its infinite gradations? How does this vocabulary of meanings and perceptions occupy?

According to the Swiss psychotherapist and sociologist Max Luscher (1923-2017), who invented the Luscher Color Test delinating the reaction of our mind to their sight, “blue represents eternity. The dark blue calms it. The blue – he adds – has therefore a calming effect. Contemplation of this color has a calming effect on the central nervous system. It represents loyalty and depth of feelings “. […]

In short, entering the water to fish or to dive even without necessarily wanting to challenge the depth records does not only have a conscious positive impact, if only because it represents the possibility of living one’s passion, but it has an unconsciously positive one about our psyche . The sea, especially if lived from within the water, offers and amplifies all this. In short, at sea it feels good, if only for the color it has.

Something is missing? Yes of course. And what color did you see in the water?
