Have you ever thought about how Colour is your life? You may not be aware of it, but Colour is your life.
Ok, you know that blood being red and oxygen being blue, both pumping through your heart is a beautiful thing. Together these two primary colours make? Wowser yes, that’s right purple. If you know something of Colour Symbology and the history of colour, then you’d know purple is a noted regal Colour: Hmmm your noble heart.
Ok, so Kings and Queens fabbed out draping themselves in purple silks, velvet and precious gems the merchants shipped from far and wide. Ok, in reality, they may have chopped up a few silk cushions and pulled down a few velvet drapes and revamped a few royal sceptres for precious gems when the village tailor ran out of funky threads, and merchants goods got lost at sea. Anyway, your heart is regal in colour. Aaww I’ll say that again, your noble heart, what an inspirational thought. If you want to practice your Nobel wave with a royal hand gesture, well, you can start on that right away.
Colour filters through your being. Your eyes have significant colours; it’s not unusual for brown eyes to have hi-lights of gold or green. Blue eyes can have flickers of purple, but rare (more jewel colours in there) Hmm and how magnificent are the many thousands of glowing skin tones?
Perhaps your hair is gold or with hi-lights of gold or purple, more regal colour. OK maybe the purple had a little help from a bottle. Maybe you have very similar hair colour, eye or skin tone to someone you know or a family member, but seriously are you going to have the same combination? The chances of that are one in who knows how many billions. Golly gosh when you think about it we are such colourful, unique human beings.
Have you ever thought about the types of colour tones you are attracted to and why? Ok so maybe you are a person who loves nature or loves the idea of non-fuss cluttered decor and gravitates towards neutral tones. Perhaps you are a passionate person who loves being surrounded by bold colours as you’re a daring personality. Or maybe you are a quiet, gentle soul who feels comfortable in pastels. Perhaps none of these colour ideas reflects who you are due to your eclectic personality. Oh seriously do I think people fit the stereotype of such things. Heck no!! That would make most people entirely predictable—good grief, with a heart made of purple the world’s your oyster, never a dull royal, what a hideous thought!!!
Colour is more than looking at a visual object; sometimes it’s the reminder of a time in your life or an association with something or someone. Just consider how green is such a peaceful colour, soothing to the soul. Perhaps you wore a bottle green uniform and swore you’d never wear bottle green again. Can’t see the forest for the bottle green trees? Hmmm, All the more reason to process those colour association memories into something positive. Let’s face it; there is plenty of good bottle green out there. We also know happy memories contribute to a more joyful heart.
Now come one, knowing that your heart is regal in colour, why wouldn’t you want to take good care of your heart? not just your food intake like purple cabbage, full of health benefits, but, emotionally and spiritually. Take some time to explore the wonder of colour and what it represents to you.
You’re a unique person made up of many beautiful tones and emotional moments. Take good care of your heart; it’s not only a regal colour; its health is of utmost importance.
Sunshine is free; bottle green forests need regrowth.
