Colour in My Life

I am so grateful everyday to have colour in my life. I talk and think in colour and it has now become a way of life for me. Not everyone shares my passion or sees colour like I do, so I have realized it is a gift. Colour has supported me in many testing times. Over the years I have called on colour for specific purposes and it has worked for me. Some events I will mention are fear, grief, shock, self acceptance, and love. There are many more I could mention as I now use colour for all of my life’s situations. It would be wonderful to see people relate to colour more and perhaps get to know themselves...

Why the Phobia about Ageing?

It is so important that we get our maximum use out of every day. Every day we have a new opportunity to do good, including for ourselves. We are all ageing. In fact as you age you are not so limited, and can branch out and pursue the things that make a difference. Lets look at Colour. It is forever living and moving through our lives. It does not cut off after a certain age. It does not throw you on the heap! It is true that our bodies go through changes. In fact change is a constant. It makes for an extremely limited life, if according to society you are over the hill after 50. What an insult to...

Self-care and resistance

There is a lot of talk at the moment about “Self-Care.” Whilst deep down we know that we owe it to ourselves, it is not that easy to do on a deeper level. I gave it a go myself and said “Self care today!” I noticed I had a deep resistance to it. Now if I had a massage booked or a hairdressing appointment I do not think the resistance would have been there. This was between myself and I. I started looking deeper and found that I was caught up in lots of noise. The pull was so strong in me that I felt I could not break away. Giving to ourselves is one of the hardest things to...

Orange The Shock Absorber

Orange has many different interpretations. This post is about orange as a shock absorber. Where I have found orange very helpful is it helps absorb shocks from events in our past and present and aids in healing the family timeline. Sometimes we recall events or emotional traumas, which can get us churned up and uncomfortable. These events can then set off a chain reaction that we may not recognize are associated to shock. Get close to Orange. It may not be one of your best colours to wear around your face, however it can be found in other ways. A large bowl of oranges or flowers is a great way to focus on the colour and breathe it into yourself....

Self Esteem and the Pace of Life

Let me ask you this. How is it all going? Do you find that someday’s you can show up a bit worse for wear? With new teeth a few fillers are you still able to shine through? I needed to ask myself. What is my role in all of this? So much of what we are exposed to is the outer appearance, the quick fix. As I am a rather quite person myself and look more to nurturing an inner creative life. I am constantly asking What is it I do? Then it came to me. I am about allowing space for women to work with their own inner-self and be able to have the confidence to shine. Their way....

Patterns and My Colour Profile

I am always fascinated working with my colour profile.  I am on the warm side and I am very used to the warm colours Oranges Tans Olive green and more in the warmer tones. Even though working with colour for over 25 years I am always delighted when I match up my profile with patterns. With a Colour Profile you are tested to try out new colours and as a result you expand your range and therefore open up to other possibilities. Not only as you see yourself,also as you come across to others. It is so easy to become set in our ways and stick to the basics. Even Neutrals have their own special vibration. I can choose these from...

In search of your own Style

Ever given thought to the fact that you have a style of your own.? It is a liberating exercise to go through. Not everyone is consciously aware of their own personal style. They may be dressing someone else’s.style and not feel “quite right”. Also probably paid good money for the look. This is fine for a special event or the short term. However over the long term it becomes essential to know you own style. There will be things that you really like deep down inside. This has nothing to do with money or size it has to do with what you relate to at a heart level. There are various names for the different sections your style can come...

Support of a Colour Profile

You often hear women say they know what their colours are. Upon investigation they have 3-4 that they wear often. This is fine As colours have particular vibrations it is a worthwhile exersise to stretch yourself around the colour wheel. This does not have to be with clothes alone, it can be flowers, accessories. soft furnishings. The main point being you are opening up to other possibilities Enjoying these on your particular vibration. A Personal Colour Profile takes you right around the colour wheel in your own particular vibration. Your correct shade and value of colour for you. Why is this helpful? It will take you out of your comfort zone with colour. Your colours expand and so do you....

Are your emotions locked in your wardrobe?

We are often told about how to organise our wardrobe. It is indeed a wonderful thing to have an organised wardrobe. However for some this can be a long process which they might not want to go through. One thing I can say for sure is that if a garment has not been worn in the last twelve months it will more than likely not be worn again by its owner. We could be saying things like: woman-309719_640 When I loose weight I will wear that again I loved wearing that! That was when I was happier than I am now How did that come to be in my wardrobe? Maybe I will wear it next season. It can be...
