I've been thinking alot about colors, mainly because I'm shopping for new stones for the Ursula Collection (release mid March) and also picking out paint for our bedroom.
I definitely tend to go for the same colors over the years - mainly purple, green and blues but honestly I love all the colors of the rainbow in varying intensities and shades. And I've actively been trying to use new stones and colors in my jewelry because it's fun and I know often times you want a deep blood red or a vibrant blue. Even tho my hand will automatically reach for the brilliant purple!
I also think often of color when I want to convey a message or exude an attitude. One time I was feeling insecure at one of my old jobs, and I decided that day I'd wear my red cinnabar carved dragon pendant. The red for power and confidence and also because it's a super cool pendant. Or my favorite badass outfit is all black - black leather jacket, boots and black jeans.
Maybe you don't consciously think about color but on a deeper level color chooses us - we are subconsciously affected by deep greens and blues when we're out in nature and the woods. It's no wonder green has a calming affect on our psyche. I just recently watched a video on how woods and nature is necessary for humans to declutter our minds.
So if you don't think about color often, try using it when you need a certain type of energy in your day. Orange for happiness and vitality, yellow for friendliness or brown to ground you. Especially think of color on a permanent level, such as your house! I chose a beautiful lavender/plum color for my future daughters room because I wanted both her and I to feel calm and serenity - especially for the days when she is screaming or crying!
As always - thank you for reading!
