EMBRACING COLOUR

We know that colour has the power to affect mood and feelings, it helps create style and ambiance, and has a profound and beautiful effect in the natural world. Exploring our thoughts about colour and the effect colours have on our feelings and emotions can be empowering and uplifting, and can help us feel good about ourselves, our life, and the world around us.

 Want to know more about how to use colour to feel good in your life, then My Colour Thoughts Program, The Colour Path, is for you.

 

 

 

 

I love colour,

I love to work with colour,

and of course colour is everywhere –

  • In the natural world – the sky, the landscape, the hills and countryside, the sea and the shoreline, the beach, and the myriad of beautiful butterflies and birds, and animals that endow our earth.

  • We embrace and use colour in our homes, we love our decor, our food looks more appetising and delicious when we place colourful items and ingredients pleasingly on our plates, and in our serving bowls. It has even been said that we eat with our eyes.

  • Colour enhances our clothing, and we use it in many ways to enhance our appearance, and can help us make choices that lift our mood and uplift our spirit.

  • Organisations, clubs, retailers, and other businesses look to use colour effectively in their branding. It can become an extension of our personality, and used as an expression of who we are.

Colour Thoughts

 

Colours affect us in many ways, and are linked to our thoughts and our memories.
Just as words can be associated with memories and feelings, so can colour …
Quietly reflect on that idea for a moment or two:
  • Colour is actively used to influence thoughts and moods in hospitals, prisons, and schools
  • We use colour in our homes to create pleasing, comfortable and relaxing environments – We may focus on shades as well as specific colours eg. We may choose Earthy tones, Warm or Cooler tones, Vibrant or Calm colours and shades
  • We may associate colours with gender, or children
  • We may have negative thoughts about some colours, these may be our own or could be inherited, e.g. if Great Grandma or our Great Aunt Sarah made it clear in our presence that only what they regarded as ‘loose’ women wore red – We may have a subconscious resistance to wearing red, we may feel uncomfortable wearing it, even when we really like the garment
  • We may have a propensity to think that we only wear black to funerals, or feel that it is a depressing or a negative colour
How are you affected by colour? What thoughts, ideas, and feelings do specific colours conjure up for you?
What colours would you choose to create ambiance in your home, or to dress powerfully, romantically, casually, formally, for work, to visit your child’s school, go to the theatre, go out to dinner?
Give it some thought – Look around your home, examine your wardrobe, examine your thoughts about shopping for new clothes, paint, fabrics and other items–

Let's Use Colour to Inspire and Uplift Your Heart and Your Life

Here a couple of short exercises from my new program 'The Colour Path'

Feel drawn to the beautiful colour of blue – Use nature’s blues to refocus, and to gently quiet and calm your mind.

 

Look to the sky and see and feel the vast expanse of blue and its myriad of shades, some interspersed with the glorious white of the clouds.

 

Breathe in and out slowly, and let the natural beauty of the quiet and calming colour tones from above seep into your heart and your body.
Focus gently and quietly as the world moves silently, and let the swathes of blue caress your heart and uplift your mood.
Feel yourself smile from the depths within as you immerse yourself in the beautiful contrast of colour forms and and the softness as the colour blends to harmonise with the landscape.

Also Try This One:

Close your eyes and think of the vast blue of the oceans and so too, its countless beautiful shades and tonal features as the blues ripple and move in harmony as the water re-colours and blends in its vast expanse and show of greatness.
As you breathe in and out slowly, see and feel how its movements harmonise with its sounds and foam of creams, and ivories and whites, all gently working together to harmonise and regenerate.
Let the beauty of this world enhance your life moment to moment – hour to hour – day to day – week to week – month to month – season to season – year to year.
Marry your thoughts with the beautiful colours of this world, use your thoughts to enhance your life and cultivate good feelings.
Anytime you need to feel better about yourself and your life, focus on recolouring your life in beautiful ways, immerse yourself in the world’s natural beauty – Beauty and colour are everywhere, when you bother to look.
Love your world, love the colours of your world, they surround you every moment of every day, let them uplift your heart, and your spirits, and your life.
