I welcome you to my multidimensional world of colour ~ Colouring your life

A time of change

It’s a strange world we live in currently isn’t it?  One of extraordinary challenges and change.  A place of confusion and constant information to sort through.  Of isolation and restriction on our freedom;  of non-contact that essential human sensory need for touch.  All of this generates so many thoughts and feelings which one minute seem to make sense and in the next feel chaotic. A cacophony of sound and colour beyond our understanding.

None of us are immune to this, wherever on this planet we call ‘home’.  Our personal experiences may seem difficult yet I hear people favourably comparing their conditions to those of others in more apparently ‘impossible’ situations with a new awareness and compassion. But that is not to lessen the sense of how it us for each one of us right NOW in this moment.  To allow ourselves to FEEL something about our experience, is so important.  To allow colour into our lives and give it attention. 

For me it may seem easier. I have a deep sense of colour. It pervades every moment of my life in an amazing, magical, informative way.  Our human inter-actions with colour are so potent and at this time so important, if only you will allow them. The ‘psychology of how colour affects us’ is not an academic exercise. It is based on what ‘colours’ in our surroundings we resonate with during particular experiences. 

But let’s consider this a little further. Colour emerges in a complex process created between our eyes and brains. It is simply our PERCEPTION of how our brain interprets light energy inputs through our eyes within a given range of frequencies. We are ‘visualising’ light energy thanks to our ability to differentiate incredibly small changes in frequencies which allow many of us to see over 7 million shades and hues.   

Although each one of has the basic mechanical and physiological equipment to do this job, what emerges is that how we see and feel the world is unique to us all. It is a key part of our whole body sensory response to this moment in our experience.

How can that help us now in these uncertain times?

I see and hear children and adults shutting down their feelings because they no longer know how to deal with what arises. I too have felt that from time to time .. a way of protecting parts of myself that feel distressed. There is a dimming of the brightness with which I perceive colour .. almost a time of seeing life in monochrome

Yet in these moments, I turn my attention to the smallest patches of colour emerging in life’s jigsaw. 

It is strange how those patches grow in size and increase their vivacity as I watch them emerge.  

 So rarely are we confronted by a deep knowing that nothing will ever be the same again in the world we have created not just at an individual level, but at every level of society.  Nothing will remain untouched. We no longer have any certainty to anchor to .. indeed if we ever did other than in our minds. We do not know what colours the world will be dressed in .. only in this moment.  As an observer of change colour is my greatest informer of how I am relating to the Universe. There are times I have no words to express my sense of colour .. my perceptions .. too. 

Those who know me feel how much I am anchored in nature at a very deep level. And amidst all of this turmoil I feel all aspects of our planet breathing such a deep sigh of relief. What feels like an immense long period of time to use to ‘endure’ or ’embrace’ what is emerging is simply a momentary pause in the life of the our planet, Earth. Yet here too when I pause .. it is the subtle sensory changes I feel which keep me grounded.

A little about me

My name is Hilary. I am an experienced and qualified COLOUR THERAPIST AND COUNSELLOR at Colouring your life.com. But those are simply labels.

We spend our lives answering questions “What do you do?”, “What is your job?” we are trained from a very early age to put ourselves in a box labelled “ME”.  It takes a lifetime of being a human being to begin to know who we are. To truly see what our potential is on this wonderful place we call Earth. 

Along the way we learn loads of stuff including how to survive. We experience the roller coaster of life, gathering ideas of what it feels like “to be ‘me’.  We develop belief systems .. things we believe to be true.  Being social animals we create relationships with others we encounter. 

Along my journey which has always been deeply connected to colour  … I have learned to use the energy of colours .. of light .. to literally COLOUR MY DAYS.  To bring sunshine into my life when its may seem endlessly grey, to bring calm when it feels like a red maze …

Indeed this is what you’ll find here .. a box of tools  .. of coloured tools to bring greater awareness into your life .

"LET YOUR TRUE COLOURS COME SHINING THROUGH."

Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly
So goes the words of the song.   

As humans we are gifted with the ability to see our world in colour.  To discriminate  between thousands of different shades and hues.  From being a very small baby we build associations with certain colours .. Kaleidoscope Colouring your life.comlearning their amazing beautiful language. In time, we learn how they touch our soul, teach us and inform us.

The playfulness of creating in colour begins when we are very small. It evolves uniquely and beautifully in each of us throughout our lives. We show this in the way we dress, in the food we choose, maybe in the way we spend our time and certainly in the spaces we call home. But colour offers each one of us so much more than that.

It’s energy speaks to my soul, much as music does.  I look at each day as a blank canvas .. full of possibilities.  But these days I choose to live it in awareness of how colours flavour each experience.  Appreciating not just the natural colours of my surroundings but also the way that they come alive for me.

It has become a way of BEING not a way of DOING.
