For thousands of years colors and shapes have influenced cultures and individuals. Colors trigger emotions that trigger reactions from the palate of body chemicals. Some colors soothe and calm, others evoke energy and vitality, and so forth across the rainbow spectrum. Shapes also have the power to induce specific thoughts or feelings. The Hindu and Buddhist cultures used the interplay between shape and color to express many elements of their faith traditions. From them, we get the vibrant prayer flag made of five different colored flags. Each color represents a different basic element: yellow-earth; green-water; red-fire; white-air, wind; blue-sky. When these elements come into harmony the power of prayer flags increases. The full history and meaning behind prayer flags goes much deeper but at a basic level they are a conduit for sending good thoughts and prayer into all space. It is auspicious to receive prayer flags as a gift. Please consider sending Wind Horses Prayer Flags to a friend or someone in need.
