TOO MANY BOXES

Have you noticed how we humans tend to dissect ourselves and put the different parts in clearly labeled boxes? Let me try to explain further…..We often define ourselves by our jobs, religion, position in life etc.

This struck me a couple of days ago whilst running a self awareness & self development workshop. Each person was asked to tell me a little bit about ‘him/herself.’  As each one spoke it struck me, most of us define ourself by things, people & situations around us. For example; I’m a teacher, a mother, husband or wife. I’m a Christian or I work in a high ranking job. But nobody spoke about his or herself as a person. So I set the following exercise:

You’re given weeks to live. Already you’re becoming dependent on those around you for feeding, bathing etc.  Your job has gone now & although you’re missed, you’ve been replaced already.  All the clothes you own, suits, dresses, shoes etc will soon all belong to someone else maybe resold through the charity shop. It’s the same with your husband or wife, they’ll one day share their life with another but right now they’re responsible for your comfort and care.  Deep down in your heart, you know your beautiful children & grandchildren will always remember you through photos, but may very well call someone else mum & grandma in the future. Everything you own, your life savings, the world you thought you knew & the dreams you had, are all relative now as you lay confined to your bed.
All the external things that once defined you have pretty much gone. Who are you?

What are your thoughts?

Magenta is probably one of the most powerful healing colours there is, especially if you’re looking for some kind of purpose in your life or you’re feeling stuck in some way. Not only is magenta one of the most powerful colours there is, it’s also known for its speedy nature. For example, speeding up the healing process, getting things done in a more efficient and effective way etc. So if you’re looking to get something cleared up pretty quickly, wearing magenta is advisable. In relation to health & healing benefits, magenta is well known for simulating adrenaline and heart activity.
Magenta is governed by Scorpio which is of course a water sign. This means its magickal benefits are around anything watery for example emotions. This is why magenta is so closely connected with the heart chakra.
Magenta is great if you are looking for a new direction on your life path, so if magenta is your favourite colour, then your personality is one that would be known as the seeker. Someone who is feeling like they’ve lost direction in their life and are now looking for a new one. The thing about magenta people, and those governed by Scorpio, this new path MUST be interesting, otherwise you lose attention very quickly. Therefore, the more magenta you wear and surround yourself with, the better.
