What Colors Do I Speak?

Focus today: what color describes your personality and why?

When I put this question to my husband, he replied “rainbow.”
“Rainbow describes your personality.” Interesting, right?

I guess I would say “blue” describes my personality because
it is a calm, serene color and I tend to be a pretty calm person
“most” of the time—
then, I would say black and white for my early life because I grew up
in a family that believed everything was black and white with no gray
areas and then . . . life happened and taught me that there
were many gray areas in reality, and many other colors to be seen.

Colors speak – whether it is in artwork by man or God. When I look
at anything, the colors bring forth certain emotions, sometimes very
strong feelings and other times a peaceful flow.

There are resources available to help understand the impact of
color on humans. I first came to research color when I worked in
graphic design and advertising for many years and found it useful to
understand color theory and that led me to research the psychology
of color and how color impacts marketing and design.

The use of color in our world is often the first thing I notice about my
surroundings, natural and manmade. I could watch a sunrise or a
sunset or a river flowing or enjoy hours at an art gallery because
the colors speak to my spirit.

Of course, it is hard to beat all the colors of nature, the various tones,
the shading, the seasonal basket full of nature telling us what is
going on – the seasons, the cycles of nature, what is coming!

Then the birds and the animals – what amazing colors are to be
seen just by looking around—colors everywhere!

The Egyptians and Chinese used colors to heal, a process that is
known as chromotherapy. Colors were used in order to help the
body function better. Everyone perceives colors differently, so . . .

And, yes, I believe our brains pick up on colors our eyes may not see.
Consciously or unconsciously, we may respond to colors our brains
are “seeing” when we see others—what colors do I speak?
An interesting question . . . maybe we should share more about
what colors we “see” in each other,
an interesting, little-understood language . . . the colors of Life!

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
