Morning Musings – 90 Days of Inspiration: Day 78

Color Your World

Have you ever felt like you are stuck, as in neutral, feeling sluggish and heavy?

Our vibrancy and uniqueness give us the opportunity to express ourselves to the world. But have you noticed the environments that are most critical are usually painted in dull gray, many times we are encouraged to wear black, blue or beige to work, there is bright fluorescent lighting that can give you headaches, and if you dare to speak up or stand out beware of the wrath of co-workers or those in authority. Not a very exciting world to live in, is it?

Neutrality can be helpful when diffusing conflict, in decision-making, or interpersonal communication. But it will crush creativity, innovation and joy.

How many of you reading this feel a constant pull towards conformity, like you must fit in, whether it be at work, within a group dynamic or just out in the crazy world of today?

It can feel as if our unique voice is being squelched, there is a flattening of dynamic expression each of us can share, and a smothering of the souls desire to be heard and understood.

  • Do you avoid living your passion? If so, why? What is holding you back?
  • When was the last time you summoned your creativity? If not now, when?
  • Do you dare to express your own uniqueness?
  • If you could show your vibrancy, colorful and creative self, what would we see and experience from you?

Did you know that it can be as simple as adding a little color to your wardrobe and you will feel more joyful and confident? You will find yourself relating more dynamically and effectively with those around you. color affects how we feel and how we connect with ourselves and others.

How color affects your mood:

  • brown can make you feel more grounded (good if you’re feeling spacey disconnected)
    blue can give you a sense of peace, wisdom and “voice” (good if we’re feeling agitated and angry, or silenced)
    red can feel passionate (perfect if you’re feeling blah; not great if you’re angry or aggressive)
    turquoise can help you be playful, have a creative feel
    green can feel abundant, heartful, prosperous, and creative
    orange can add a sense of joyfulness and vibrancy
    yellow can uplift and enhance focus (or aggravate analytical excess)
    pink can soften hostility or aggression, and enhance loving thoughts
    purple is often associated with royalty and Spirit

When you add color to your life, amazing things happen! Give it a try and watch your confidence improve, your relationships get stronger and your creativity expand.

Eileen, thank you for the latest article in your amazing series. My favorite color is blue. I love the color blue. Blue absolutely makes me feel good. My least favortie color is brown followed by green. I’ve never been one that has been overly affected one way or another by color. I just know what color I like. Blue is my color as blue are my eyes. You always seem to find ways to help people look after themselves while at the same time lifting them higher. It is not hard to see why you are successful.
