One afternoon last January while meditating, I heard/saw the words “Pink is Everything!” Exclamation point and all. Whatever did it mean?
At first, I took it literally, as we humans often do.
Pink? I was never a pink kind of girl. Or woman. Never particularly liked the color.
But wait a minute. The last couple of years I’ve noticed myself bringing this color into my life (muted, rich shades of it, of course – not Disney pink).
I have a favorite pink scarf that I frequently wear and I’m knitting one with (you guessed it!) pink yarn.
I moved to Jersey City last summer and had my bedroom painted PINK.
I went to buy a new rug and when I stepped out of the elevator, the most beautiful pink Persian rug (on sale!) was lying there just waiting for me.
I thought this was a new phenomenon but I started to look around and saw that I’d used this color frequently in my art.
And my heart absolutely broke open when I would see pink flowers in bloom.
I noticed that at different times in my life, going through different challenges, I would either be drawn to/or turned off by certain colors.
Being an artist, this always got my attention. I wondered why I’d have such a visceral reaction to certain colors.
I used to detest the color orange, which is the color associated with the second chakra. My whole life I had issues in this chakra and suddenly, when I started paying attention and healing it, I noticed orange becoming part of my palette.
Same with the color green (heart chakra). I can’t get enough of the color green these days – especially in nature (hence my recent trip to Scotland).
I bought a green jacket before my trip. And a green suitcase with a matching green backpack. 🙂
My least favorite color is bright red, the color of the root chakra. One of these days perhaps I will surround myself in red and finally be able to say “I’m grounded”.
Red was the favorite color of my partner, Ralph – one of the most grounded, rooted Kapha-types I’ve known. Like a tree trunk.
