Chickens, let’s talk colour.  I simply cannot seem to get enough.  I managed to wear the black blazer for about an hour before I needed something beyond the black and grey I’d originally put together.  I am a hippy at heart (shhh – don’t tell anyone), and I have made a study of colours, what they mean, why we’re attracted to them.

I am a Reiki practitioner, and when I practice Reiki on others and myself, I see – “see” – in colour.   The colours you are most attracted to are the ones that speak most to where you are, emotionally, mentally.  I cannot get enough of reds, pinks, burgundies.  Red is a rooted colour, aligned with your root Chakra.  It is associated with primal urges.  It packs a serious sexual punch, but not a sophisticated one (orange is the colour associated with sexual talent).  It also indicates a deep connection with the earth (but not the environment), a sense of stability.

I’m investigating what this means to me.  Does it mean that I am seeking these things, or that I’m feeling them?  It can be one or the other.  Time will tell.

In other news – less hippy, but still flighty – I love my hair today!

  2. That’s so awesome that you’re a Reiki practitioner! I’ve been looking into it for a while, but haven’t thought too seriously about it yet. How long have you been practicing?

    • I received my Level 1 three years ago, and my Level 2 six months later. I’ve been waiting for my Reiki Master to hold a Level 3, so sometime in that next year. After my Level 2 I had a bit of a Reiki freakout, and just couldn’t bring myself to practice for some reason. Every time I tried, I would get panicky. Then one day a friend of mine was really sick, and we were at a music festival, sitting at our campsite. I kept listening to him wheeze through deep breaths, and I offered to practice on him for a little bit. It felt so right, and I just felt really connected … plugged in, I guess. I haven’t had any anxiety about it since, and I practice regularly. I’ve been playing with the idea of renting some time in my friend’s Bodytalk space, seeing if I can book some clients.

      It is really worth it, and I found that it really helped me with learning how to meditate, and in deepening my yoga practice.
