Colour in your life?

Now I'm no psychologist but I am a firm believer that the colours we surround ourselves with tell us a lot about the person, and can affect our mood, our confidence and our outlook on things.  I'm not saying colour is the solution to it all, but I believe strongly that we can help shape how we feel about things, by the colour choices we make, including what we wear. Never be afraid to colour your karma. 


I love some quotes attributed to Pablo Picasso, such as

"Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions." and  

"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint."

What a colour means to you is very much a personal thing, its impact and interpretation coloured (!!) by experience. Those colour mind puzzles that have done the rounds on in the internet in recent years, the dress, is it blue or white or whatever it was, are down to a multitude of factors and what is blue to one person could be green / white to another. We can never really know what someone else sees when they look at the same thing as us. Is what they call red, the same as my red? Are we all seeing different things? Does it even matter?

Some colours have long had accepted meanings. Red colours are considered warm colours, the colour of passion, fire, love or danger. Colours on the blue spectrum are seen as cooler, calmer, more tranquil. 
What ever colour means to you, mixing colours or being vibrant does not have to be 'loud' or in your face, it can simply be about happiness, being alive and free to make that choice. What I do know is that when I wear colour, even a small statement, even mixed with the good old black wardrobe staples, :) I feel different, even in a small but positive way. And that can only be a good thing!
Colour confidence is nothing to shy away from and colouring one's karma to be actively encouraged! :)
