Let’s talk about rose gold thinking – it’s different than rose thinking and it’s different than gold thinking.
Rose gold – the metal – is a blend or an alloy. Rose gold – the color – is also a blend. Like anything blended, it has the characteristics of the components, but it also has its own unique resulting attributes. It is more than the sum of its parts.
Rose, or pink, is a gentle color that brings unconditional love, compassion and caring.
Gold is a color that refers to our inner wisdom, insight and knowing.
Put them together and you get the wisdom of love.
When do I need rose gold thinking? When don’t I!?!
I need it as I struggle to find the right thing to say to someone who is experiencing grief or loss.
I need it when I am looking for the right way to disarm or defuse a stressful situation.
I need rose gold thinking when I am listening, so that I can hear what is really being said.
I want rose gold when I am setting the table for company, because I want them to feel loved and welcomed.
Gold thinking is about knowing. Rose pink thinking is about feeling. Rose gold thinking is about being – how can I be?
Rose gold helps me to hear, know and incorporate the answers clearly when I ask these questions:
- What would love do in this situation?
- What would love say in this situation? Hear? See?
- How will the wisdom of love help me to be my best in this situation?
- What do I have to share?
- What will help me to see the other person’s heart – not just their actions or words?
- What are the unspoken prayers of my heart?
- How can I set judgment aside in this situation to see the deeper truth?
You’ve probably noticed that rose gold is a color with depth and that rose gold thinking goes deep. That’s true of many of the blended colors, such as turquoise or coral. Blended colors are like a very fine wine blend, full of complexity and layers and richness. They can have a long finish – which means that they stay with you for an extended period.
Like both gold and pink, the you will find the loving wisdom of rose gold inside you.
In the meantime, remember these things: You are loved. We are all loved. Let’s all be kind. And in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light,
