Rainbow colours

CB017727Today has been all about colour. Even driving this evening there was a wonderful rainbow accompanying me as I drove along to a Reiki session. Colour also came into the channelled meditation I did for the group this afternoon . I love working with colour vibrations because I’m always reminded about the song by Cyndi Lauper. It’s  all about our true colours.

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
Its hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow

Some days it’s very hard to recognise that you are a bright Spirit light here on planet for a good purpose. Everyday niggles, issues or challenges can dull even the most positive of us. It’s a lot easier to react with fear than to find a way through the day looking on the bright side. I guess that’s also a cue for another song, lol. Yet what the Guides brought in for us during today’s meditation was a little bit of space to recognise how they see us.

To the Spirit World we appear like flecks of light floating in a darker sea. Tiny specks of radiance and colour. At our heart we are pure white energy. That is our essence. We can transmit that pure white light to everyone and everything around us. That white light is a spectrum of different vibrational colours (what you see when light passes through a prism) all of which radiate particular emotional vibrations. So you can have the light pink of mother/father love, the red of passionate love or the deep magenta of love of service to humanity. There is also the midnight blue of dedication. The pale blue of calm, cool headedness. The vibrant orange of positivity. So many colours to radiate like a rainbow through you.

I love helping people ‘find’ their colours. Once we begin to sense all of the energy we radiate we realise that no matter what is appearing on the surface underneath we are connected to beautiful energy. We can share that energy with others. I often wear the colour orange because it is, to me, a brilliantly positive colour. I feel good in it & everyone comments on how bright I look. Another colour I wear a lot is blue, usually when I am teaching, because I work a lot with channelling wisdom from Energy Beings. Red comes in to play when I’m off to a church service and need some active energy to get a nice strong connection. I try to steer away from black as it’s a colour that often represents invisibility.

That’s interesting thing about colour. Each of us has a preference for certain colours. Whether we are aware of it or not the colours we wear, or put around us, are a reflection  what our true colours are as well as what we feel on any given day. Also, what one colour means to me might be something different for you. Some people associate red with anger not action. Others may associate red with gift giving and a lot of celebration decorations are red too. So do you know your true colours yet? If not take a look at your wardrobe. Pick out the clothes you love to wear the most or feel really good in. What colours are they? What does each colour make you feel?  Now you are starting to identify the energy vibration you radiate out. Are you a rainbow or a single colour? Perhaps there is an opportunity for you to try more colours and increase the amount of Light you offer to the world.

Quiet Kindness

IMG_0592Yesterday I hit the wall. All of my resilience had gone. The adrenaline had completely worn off. Concussion, flooding, clearing up, being there as a listening ear, wondering if I still had a business left. The last month has been a test in so many ways that I can’t even begin to explain. I’ve felt like I was trying to plat sand or roll my stone up a mountain that got bigger every time I turned around. I was ready to sit down and give up.

I didn’t even want to make the effort to go to my lovely Damsels group this morning. As I got myself together I stopped and remembered something. The electric was off for 3 1/2 days in the flooding. It had a bigger impact on me than I expected at the time. I had to dig deep within myself to stay positive & somehow I did (mostly). Yet there are people in this world who don’t have enough  electricity, or warmth or food every day of their lives. They keep going. So I wondered when I had gone soft on life? When had I lost my ability to take adversity and turn it into opportunity? Grabbing my orange coloured top & jeans I put as much bright energy around me as I could. Then out to the car on my way to the meeting.

My reward for talking myself through that low moment was a group of wonderfully supportive women who wrapped me in love & kindness. The compassion flowed abundantly.  As I drove home I started to list all of the quiet kindness that has been shown in and to my community over the last three weeks. Not only random acts of kindness but the concerted efforts of many, many people to show compassion and strength. As we all process the changes life has brought about we are going through a range of emotions. These can involve feeling shock, disbelief, anger, guilt, depression, despair, fear and sadness. Thoughts can spin out of control. Sometimes a numbness sets in when we are too exhausted to process any more. These are our natural responses to change – something has to go so something else can be gained. Eventually we will all benefit from positives that occur after the changes become the new rhythm of our lives.

In my list I recognised the gentle strength that was on offer from all those who, in their compassion, empathised with the confusion that a dramatic change had brought about. Like the song, each person came with the invitation ‘Lean on me when you’re not strong, and I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on’. Friends, strangers, young, old, all shapes & sizes, each in their way bringing me the gift of encouragement. I’m usually the one doing the encouraging so receiving and accepting this flow of compassion has felt a little strange. Roles are reversed as others are strong for me. The humble, unassuming service each person did, from lifting a floor at the church to a back massage, from encouraging me to keep raising issues affecting our businesses to buying me a latte, is awesome. It’s our true humanity shining through.

My bounce still has to come back. I’m learning to recognising my inner strength in knowing that my sparkle WILL return. My True Colours are Orange, Turquoise, Gold and Purple. I will be shining again soon, ready to return the kindness I have received quietly & thankfully to as many people as possible. Do you know your true colours? You have more strength than you know right now so shine brightly!
