Yesterday I read a very interesting blog that talked about meditating and focusing on a color that could be healing. I did a little checking around about this topic and there is such a thing as color and also image therapy.
Well, I kind of took a leap with this. I am in the habit of trying to have insight into my life by asking the "universe" ....What do I need to know? and by being sensitive to words and thoughts that come to me. I had never really thought about trying to ask for a color or an image.
So yesterday, with my tummy problems 90% resolved.....I asked the "universe" what color I needed to focus on. My answer was pink. Very interesting.... I had trouble even mentally picturing pink even coming close to me. Why? Pink is weak. Pink is wimpy. I avoid wearing pink. Pinks is so babyish. Pink is VULNERABLE. What gives there? Everyone is so nasty, pushy, aggressive, critical, opinionated. I can be easily hurt if I show weakness.
I need to be on the defense to ward off and be ready to be attacked. Noted how one clenches their gut if they think someone is going to punch them there.
Flashback to recent thoughts....
1)"Background noise"..... what is going on in the background of my life?
The elections provided us with an environment of negativity for quite a while.
My job and local politics have people that appear to be aggressively negative and self-serving.
Relatives seem to all put on a face of liking each other and seem to backstab at the first opportunity.
So many, it has seemed, take pleasure and find their meaning in being unrelentingly nasty, aggressive, and mean.
2)"Unless ye become as a little child, ye cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."
Children are fresh, small, open, trusting and VULNERABLE
Conclusion: Yes, pink is what is needed here. Pink is the color to apply. A shimmering, bright, iridescent, warm pink. Pink can govern, nourish, and relax my tight abdomen and intestines. Fully imagining this, the mental application of pink had a major effect on my stomach. I went line dancing for an hour and enjoyed it. I ate snacks afterward with no problem.
Woke up in middle of night. May as well try color/image therapy...nothing else to do.
One part of body uncomfortable....what color to apply? Robins egg blue
Thought about daughter and our fairly lengthy, honest, open conversations....what to think? Image of a small gold bell ringing a clear sound came to me...interesting...not sure about this
Thought about friendship...how to handle this? Image of a butterfly with all colors of the rainbow, with wings fracturing out to the side and fluttering......interesting...
.realized later this showed joy, acceptance and need to fly and "expand my wings." Take this to mean that I need to put more joy in friendships and to add new friends.
Thought that I'd really like to get back to sleep since it was 3:30 AM. Felt I needed to apply a color to my head.............cobalt blue..........went back to sleep.
Maybe I should have titled this blog, how to have fun in bed??
