COLOR (Y)OUR WORLD
*"Breathe, Relax, and Think Blue"
Sean, an artist and Tai Chi instructor, discussed thinking in color to an informal group. "That's odd," I thought. Well, actually, for an artist to feel that way, it's not strange at all. Artists' minds tend to run like videotape, or a moving slide show.
Dreams glow vividly with rainbow prisms. Dream it forward. Dreams spark inspirations for us all, suggesting prophetic experiences, guidance, directions, or change.
Soul reflection: thinking in color can be a new experience. I thought about color and the way each hue vibrates at individual frequencies. Think of your favorite color or colors. What effects do colors have in your life, your soul? Can you send a color to another person?
Deep breathing coupled with relaxation, and mindful movement are all principles of Tai Chi and Qigong. Since practicing and then teaching these arts, I have said many times to myself and others: "Breathe, Relax, and Think Blue," a color of peace and healing. Blue can also express truth and communication as well as intuition and protection from evil spirits.
