Day 98/366 days Towards Self-Mastery. Mood: colourful!
Bringing colour alive in your life is yet another avenue for exploring those aspects of life that you love.
"Commit to Feel Good" is the title of my book that I penned some years ago. Discovering the vibrational nature of our connected universe enabled me to understand the immense value of feeling good to my health and wellbeing. It's the same for you!
Today Sarah speaks of colouring your world.
Explore the colours that you love and work out how you can bring them into your life more often.
Colour is vibrational in nature, and for that reason, it is your vibrational medicine.
It's key that you connect with what feels good to you, whether that be colour or texture, music, taste, or scent, just about anything as long as it feels good.
The reason that feeling good is so important is that this feeling, the one we call good, is soothing and healing. Feeling good is the healing vibration for all the reasons I mentioned in my previous post.
When I explored colour I realise that neutral colours sooth my soul, calm me and establish a mellow disposition when I need to be in stillness. My home is a neutral colour palette of aubergines, muddy pinks and timbers.
Grabbing a couple of meters of fabric from the store, of colour combos that I loved, and leaving them draped over the couch for a while helped me to choose the right combinations of colours that I could live with every day.
I'm torn though as I also love to experience the excitement of splashes of bright colour!
Blobs of red find their way into my world through pottery, plant pots and wearable artsy accessories.
Classic florals painted on antique china have a special place as a feature on my wall.
Writing pens of glitz and texture enhance my scrapbooking craft. Ankle boots have also daringly exhibited my love of glitzy pink passion.
There are lots of ways to bring the vibrational frequencies of colour into your world in just the right doses to be the medicine you need.
There's a whole industry around the use and choice of colours. Explore to your heart's content and settle on what you absolutely, unreservedly love!
366 days Towards Self-Mastery
When I considered my New Year's intentions for 2020 I had just one: To allow my heart to love what it loved...and let it lead me. (If not now, then when?) I've spent months working on integrating my life. To live life more fully with my home life, my interests, my work, my responsibilities, all coming together, all connected. I want to give each the attention that they desire and need, and still have time and energy for the others. That means living and working from the heart. As I was clearing out my bookshelf over the Christmas break I discovered Simple Abundance. I set it aside to explore it on New Year's Day as I lazed through another delicious day of nothingness. Sarah, the author, says this book is about living in grace. Living in grace I realised, is about Self-Mastery. My thirst for understanding the human condition has driven me all my life, and hand-in-hand with self-mastery it has been a life-long goal. And seeing as I love to write, that living in grace is about self-mastery, and I love a bit of a challenge, then if I am truly going to let my heart lead, I really don't have any other choice. So scary as it feels, I'm starting out on a daily mission of leaning into the suggestions of this daybook and making a daily post to keep me accountable. If not now, then when? I'm Josie. You can find out a little more about me here. Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy: by Sarah Ban Breathnach. This book is written for the Australian and NZ market because it refers to seasonal changes. It's available on Amazon here if you'd like to follow along.
