It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog – too embarrassing to mention !
So what was it that sparked my flame to start writing again ? I am pretty sure it was the Stress Management Certification Course I attended in Boulder Colorado last week with Dr Brian Luke Seaward ( Paramount Wellness Institute ) I was one of 24 other ”eager to learn” participants - the only one from the UAE , well worth the long flights to get there. A great mentor and lots of new learning to apply to life and work in the 21st century & new lifelong friends from around the USA.
One of the many exercises we did focused around non verbal communication through art – with some fabulous creative outcomes !
The butterfly is a symbol of transformation so it made lots of sense to colour in our own butterfly ! Here’s mine !
and here’s a blank one for you to print off and colour
To add even more depth to this exercise you can write inside the butterfly wings the inner resources you use ( optimism, creativity, patience, resilience ) to cope with challenges.
If there are inner resources that you feel you would like to have to be a stronger part of who you are then write these attributes outside of the butterfly and draw an arrow from the word into the wings – by doing so you send a direct message to your unconscious mind to begin to utilize these inner resources more often.
Are you ready for a personal transformation ?
Pick up some colored crayons or pastels, put on some gorgeous instrumental music and give your self 10-15 minutes to colour in the wings of your butterfly.
Hang your completed work of art on the fridge or office wall to remind you of your inner resources.
Here’s a list of colours and their archetypal meanings :
RED : Passionate emotional peaks ( from pleasure to pain ) It can represent either compassion or anger
ORANGE : Suggests a life change ( big or small and often more positive than negative )
YELLOW: Represents energy ( usually a positive message )
GREEN & BLUE : Suggest happiness and joy ( blue may even mean creativity ) These colors also suggest a string sense or desire of roundedness and stability in your environment.
PURPLE/ VIOLET : Suggest a highly spiritual nature, unconditional love
BROWN : A sense of groundedness and stability
BLACK : Can either represent fear , grief , despair or a sense of personal empowerment
WHITE : Can either mean fear, avoidance, cover up or hope
GREY : Typically represents a sense of ambiguity or uncertainty about some issue you are working on.
What do your colors say ?
Have fun and get ready for a big breakthrough ! What is coming to fruition each and every time is more and ore of your true self !
