I was feeling really energised upon waking this morning. I’m not sure why as I didn’t get to bed until 1:30am and was awoken by morning cuddles from my lil boys bright and early at 6:30am. I really believe their energy influences my own energy and vibration for the day. I was however eager to maintain this positive, flowing, happy energy throughout the long, busy day that lay ahead. I was acutely aware that it could start to fade at any point due to the lack of sleep I’d had.
I had my shower and was thinking about what to wear for the day and my choices are almost always inspired firstly by colour. I dress according to how I want to feel, what emotions are within me, my energy levels, and what I’m feeling inspired by. Colour relates to all of these decisions and influences each choice. I also often have a strong desire to be completely cocooned in one particular colour; my little protective shield for the day, or what I want to radiate outwardly. This morning it was a very spontaneous, yet swift decision; yellow.
My mind must have been very clear and focused this morning. I believe if we have a clear mind then we are easily attracted to particular colours. Colours that our body is drawn to for replenishing of our body, mind and spirit.
I love thinking about and analysing the psychology of colour. It’s probably one of my favourite topics. I’m fascinated by how it influences our lives and health. Why it is I make my choices based on a particular colour.
How do they influence the day ahead. How individual colours can affect our moods. How our environment feels when it is decorated by a particular colour, and how colour can stimulate our mind, body and soul.
The colour yellow is all about joy, happiness, optimism, vitality and communication. It symbolizes Spring. It is actually Springtime where I live at the moment and this was really interesting as yellow has been a feature colour of late in what I chose to wear, to eat, my paint selection and even flowers that I am drawn to.
Physically the colour yellow is a stimulant. I definitely needed that today. Yellow activates our memory, stimulates our nervous system and enhances creativity. I’ve certainly felt the buzz of creativity too lately.
This morning whilst hanging out a load of washing I was dreaming of how wonderful it would be to spend two full, solitary days in my studio creating new paintings and illustrations. I have a full memory bank of ideas and inspiration for new pieces at the moment and I am desperate to let them out to become real!
Yellow is also my all time favourite colour. I have really vivid memories of yellow as a little girl. Fields of yellow flowers in the springtime, daisies in our front lawn, pure yellow sand hot beneath my feet in the height of a hot W.A summer, my favourite yellow sun dress that I was so sad to eventually grow out of (wish I still had this). What is your favourite colour and why? I love yellow for its energy, warmth and joy.
I just wanted to mention also that I was completely overwhelmed by all of your lovely comments on my blog post yesterday. I shall come back here later to personally respond to you all. Wow, you guys are really amazing, I’m really feeling your warmth, friendship and support, thankyou so much X Happy Friday everyone.
