What does your favourite colour say about you…..


What does your favourite or personality colour say about you?

I have not gone into the full explanation here but just a little idea of what your favourite colour says about you.

  • Red – you are action oriented with a deep need for physical fulfillment and to experience life through the five senses.
  • Orange – you have a great need to be with people, to socialize with them, and be accepted and respected as part of a group. You also have a need for challenges in your life, whether it is physical or social challenges.
  • Yellow – You have a deep need for logical order in your everyday life and to be able to express your individuality by using your logical mind to inspire and create new ideas.
  • Green – You have a deep need to belong, to love and be loved, and to feel safe and secure. You need acceptance and acknowledgment for the everyday things you do for others – just a ‘thank you’ is sufficient.
  • Blue –  A deep need to find inner peace and truth, to live your life according to your ideals and beliefs without having to change your inflexible viewpoint of life to satisfy others.
  • Indigo – lovers have a need to feel in harmony and at one with the Universe and to be accepted by others as the aware and intuitive spiritual beings that they are.
  • Purple or Violet – You have a deep need for emotional security and to create order and perfection in all areas of your life, including your spiritual life. You also have a deep need to initiate and participate in humanitarian projects, helping others in need.

  • White – Your deepest need is for simplicity in your own life and to be independent and self-reliant so you do not need to depend on anyone else.

Living Creatively

Creativity is a huge subject and there are many ways of interpreting what it actually is.  We tend to think in terms of talent, artisitc ability and finished projects and that time spent on creativity is a luxury, something that you can do once all the other daily chores are completed.

But creativity is really a state of being, a state of being tapped into the creative source within you.  It is not about a finished project, it’s about getting in touch with your inner-self, your passion, who you really are and what really excites you.  To discover how to express yourself, not to worry about others judging you, what they may think and worrying about standing out in a crowd.  Surely it’s better to be seen as a leader rather than a follower?  We need to connect with Our Authentic Self, in our own unique way.  I believe that creativity is self-expression in its highest form and that creative self-expression is a vital part of well-being.

Many of us don’t feel creative and others feel creatively blocked.  We use our creative energy responding to life’s daily challenges and fulfilling our responsibilities.  It’s not about talent, skill, pleasing others or proving ourselves worthy.  It’s only about self expression.  It’s about the process we go through living our life, being in the flow, your own personal journey of self discovery and as time goes on this can become more and more magical, ‘Living Magically’ as the wonderful author Gill Edwards wrote about in her book with that very title.  We all need to express the unique beauty and truth within each and every one of us.
