My Year of Magical Thinking: Today is sponsored by the color YELLOW
“Look at the stars Look how they shine for you And everything you do Yeah they were all yellow.”
From Yellow, Lyrics and music by Coldplay
As a kid, I loved to watch Sesame Street. At the end of the show, there was what could have been a public service announcement for kids setting forth that the show was sponsored by a number and a letter. I always thought what a clever idea. My focus after the show stayed with the “8” or the “C” if those happened to be chosen. It made that particular number and letter feel special, something that I paid attention to, something that was supposed to add to my little world. And usually, it would show up over and over again. While I did not know it then, I have since figured out that what I place my attention on will reoccur over and over in my life. It was a tool to help me really learn my numbers and letters as a child, and it is a tool to help me learn to live my life in a way that is filled with optimism.
As May is the month of awakening creativity on the journey to bliss, there is no better way to do so than referencing the beautiful palette of delightful colors we have before us. As I woke this morning, all I thought about was the color yellow. How beautiful, bright, and bold it is. Not only is it the favorite of my daughter, it just screams out happiness. How I want to see more beauty in my life, how I would like to shine so bright, and how I want to make choices boldly as I shift to a healthy and positive direction. Then I thought of that wonderful show, on that wonderful Sesame Street, surrounded by the greats led by the craziest Yellow and lovable Big Bird and I decided that today, this Monday, will be sponsored by the color YELLOW.
Of course, to understand better what Yellow symbolizes, a little research is always necessary. As such, there is a vast array of information on the web that describes yellow as full of creative and intellectual energy. Apparently, this is the reason that the experts recommend painting a child’s room yellow as it helps with the flow and at the same time inspires calm.
As well, Yellow traditionally symbolizes wisdom. Apparently, studies have shown that people of high intellect favor yellow and the energy of yellow is beyond amazing and inspiring. It calls to mind a bright, sunny day just relaxing your cares away. It also brings clarity, awareness and relief from burn-out, panic, nervousness and exhaustion
Furthermore, the experts say that yellow gemstones can promote the ability to express yourself as they are excellent for writers and public speakers to increase eloquence. Something to keep in mind if you are looking to express yourself and communicate better to your audience.
So apparently, if you need a boost to your spirit, grab a bright yellow article of clothing and see what happens. If you need a boost of energy, grab a lemon and enjoy some hot tea. If you need a little renewal, go stand in the warmth of the sun. It may just be the fastest way to cheering yourself up as it can have an uplifting effect on yourself and others. Using the color yellow in your surroundings may just be what you need to change things up if you are in a slump.
So where your focus goes, your day shall follow. It seems then, with all its positive and uplifting attributes, Yellow is a good color to start this week with. Especially where you may be looking to make positive changes in my own surroundings, let your intuition surrounded by yellow guide you away from draining energy towards “yellow” energy in all areas of your life. This color may just be what the doctor ordered. So I would like to thank the color Yellow in advance as I take this public service announcement and recognize that it is a good day for some YELLOW in my life. On this creative, wonderful Monday, what do you have to lose?
