You may know that I work a lot around the colors of energy. If you’ve had a reading from me, you know that I give you a “color snapshot” that tells you what color is primary in your life energy at the moment, and then I explain what that means. Similarly, I read auras (even though I don’t call them that) and I relate what I see in colors, shapes, and location around your physical body. This all helps me to interpret for you just what you need to know.
I understand and work with color so much that I decided to help you understand it better too. This is why I have written this series, What Your Favorite Color Says about You.
It’s as the title says; however, I realize that some people don’t have a favorite color, and some people have more than one. That’s okay. Here are some ways to determine what color or colors pertain most to you and your life:
- If you have an actual favorite color, well, there you go.
- If you have a secondary and tertiary favorite, those will pertain to you too.
- Look in your closet: What color/s are most prominent in your wardrobe?
- What color is your car? This is applicable even if you did not choose the color of your car, maybe even more so. I notice that people often wear the color/s that are present in their energy, and that their cars and other belongings tend to have them too.
- If you really, really don’t have a favorite or un-favorite or a strong opinion, you’re a rainbow!
Each color has a “light” side and a “shadow” side, or positive and negative. (Note: This does NOT mean good and evil! Everything is useful and there is no devil! But that’s another story…) I’ll call them “bright” and “dark” because we describe colors that way. You may consider the “dark” version of the color to be your un-favorite, but either or both may apply to you. See how you identify with the following.
We’re going to start with red. If red is your favorite color or your un-favorite color (or otherwise present in your life; see above), here are the ideas and values you are concerned about:
Red overview: Passion, anger, support, inflammation
Bright red: You tend to be involved with and close to your family of origin, which can include grandparents and people who are like family from your childhood. You may enjoy memories of your growing-up years and remember those years fondly. You also know how to be independent, and you don’t suffer a lot of drama with your family. You stand on your own two feet and stand up for yourself. You support yourself spiritually and emotionally, and you take care of your most basic needs. You’re good at self-care.
Dark red: You may have unhealthy emotional attachments to or be estranged from your family of origin. You tend to have trouble taking care of yourself and wonder how you wound up like you did. You might blame your parent/s for things that you don’t like about your life. You may have a background of having been abused, and it’s hard for you to take good care of yourself, which leads to you depending on others and trying to please others so they will give you what you need. To go back toward “bright red”, remember that you came into this life to be happy, and that you and only you have created and can create or re-create your life. Of course, there is plenty of help for you to learn to do that, including books, websites, teachers, and, of course, me!
