However, too much black will drain your energy and induce pessimism, stopping you from moving forward. For healing purposes, always combine black with other colours.

Also, avoid wearing black while going to places full of negative energy, like hospitals, shopping centres, and cemeteries (even if black is the mourning colour). In this way, you will not absorb the energy of these places and the people who are present there.

Another word of caution: if your aura has black shades, it indicates an illness, feeling alone and lack of energy.
