Now that we’re back into color thinking, let’s do blue. I need blue.
Are you feeling as if you just might have lost the plot?
Perhaps this need for blue is happening on a big scale – you’re hungering for your purpose, for meaning, direction, big peace. You want to be able to see your life’s blueprint, find the things that feel meaningful to you. You want to understand the big “why?” questions. You want to find your voice.
Or perhaps it’s a smaller scale thing. Maybe feeling a bit blue – lost, sad, distant? A little unfocused, unclear on the point. Maybe feeling a little bit unheard? Or that you’ve lost your voice?
I told you last week that my brother died last month. I’m still sad, of course, grieving a bit. I’m not totally lost, just wandering a little bit. I’m rethinking what is important. I’m deciding what energy I have and where to put it. I’m a bit blue. Of course I am.
These are the worlds of blue thinking. Sometimes, but not always earth shattering.
Blue is the first color. The most primary of the primaries. It’s the ocean, teeming with life and energy and rhythm and potential. It’s the peacefulness of a clear blue sky. It’s the most popular color in the world.
It’s not an accident that architectural plans are blueprints.
Blue is also the color of the throat energy center, where our voice lives, the center of communication.
You have to sit down and make time for blue thinking. You have to be purposeful. If you seek peace, find a peaceful place. If you seek purpose, be deliberate. If you want to come to terms with sadness, be soft. If you want to find or re-find your voice, be where you can hear and open to listen to your heart – and committed to speak up. You’ll need to focus, so prevent distractions.
Blue thinking is full of visioning questions. What do I want, what do I need, how do I want to feel, what do I want to accomplish, what is important to me, what is essential, who do I want to be, what do I want my legacy to be? If I keep doing what I’m doing where will I be in 1, 5, 10 years? What are the five most important things in my life? What outcomes do I want? What do I want to honor? Do I feel called to do or be anything? What is the most important thing for me right now, just for now?
These are just prompts, examples of the kinds of blue thinking questions. Find your own – just one or two – and follow them where they lead. Listen to what YOU have to say. Find your own voice.
Blue thinking will help you find meaning, purpose and direction, to see potential outcomes, to experience peace and ease, to come to terms with sadness, to find your voice, to be heard. To understand and be understood.
Thank you, I really needed this blue space.
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
