Color Me…PINK!

I woke to a VERY dreary day in NYC.  It’s a pattern I’m really hoping changes soon!  Dreary = drowsy…

What to do on a day with no visible outside color to energize me?   Connect with the color I need for the day, purposefully or intuitively, and pull images from the recesses of my mind and the world around me.

Today’s perfect morning color:  Intuitively Pink

I’ve said it before, I LOVE a pink sunrise.  There is just something special about an early morning sky covered in a pink glow.  I can’t think of a better way to start the day really.

This morning I somehow knew I needed pink today.  So I visualized this perfectly pink and peaceful morning.  A memory I cherish.

That led me to my catalog of images and MORE pink sunrises.

And that made me think of pink Water Colors.

Then I started noticing all the pink around me.  My toothbrush is pink.  I have walls painted pink.  On my desk sits my pink and blue Wonder Woman wristband.

{Yes, there is a story there.  Let’s just leave it at some days we need a little extra super hero mojo!}

Then I went to my bookcase to pull out a few of my color theory and healing books to see what all this pink attention was all about and I realized I have pink books and journals galore.  I never realized I had so much pink love!

Here’s what the experts have to say about pink.

The PINK Effect

Awakens compassion.  Calming.  Stimulates the immune system.  Comforts emotional energies.  Meditate with pink to discern greater truths.

In China, pink is considered a lucky color.

Pink Personality

If you like pink you are likely a soft and tender friend.  You are romantic and don’t like violence.  You are talented but not overambitious.  People are drawn to you by your charm and warmth.  You are contemplative and cautious.


I hope you are feeling compassionate, calm, enlightened, and comforted by PINK.  GO PINK!
