What is colorful living? Well, the old house that I grew up in had this hideous turquoise carpet in the kitchen, I don't mean this colorfully. Who puts a carpet in their kitchen anyway? I am talking about colorfully nurturing the soul. Doing things that feel good, or sometimes even scare the crap out us, so that we can find a way back to the Self. Colors have the ability to change moods, change lives, and make people see things differently. As an artist, colors are a language and they speak certain wisdom that allows one to see the natural beauty in this life. Living colorfully is also dynamic and balanced living. Not doing things in excess, healing from whatever is happening or has happened in this life, or making big changes so that one may live in a state of complete health and wellness.
Everyone has the ability to live colorfully; it only requires small changes and random acts of kindness every day. Here are five ways to start living colorfully today:
1. Stop and smell the roses... don’t let life get you too busy so that you miss out on the beauty that is going on around you; and beauty is everywhere!
2. Color breathing... do you remember physical science class talking about ROY G BIV?
They are the colors of the rainbow, prism, or pretty much all of life. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet; all have healing properties as well if you can visualize them in your breath.
