Doodling & Drawing
Colors as Our Guides: BLUE
Written & Illustrated by elinap
In 2018 I’ll explore daily doodling with different hues of ink on paper.
I chose blue, or it chose me, to be the first color of this year.
Blue is the color of the third eye.
It’s the most active chakra in my system.
Previously I’ve thought it’s a color I don’t want to add in my life as I get a little nausea of having too much of it. But then I wanted to see what would happen, because I had a really strong hunch that this is where I needed to go next.
And what happened when I concentrated on the color that brings clarity, and sight?
It changed my world around. It guided me through a huge life-change smoothly and with grace. I loved it!
Here’s what happened…
I want to share this with you because colors have a really important role in my life and maybe they have importance in your life too or with reading this you could begin a colorful exploration of your own with colors as your guides!
I fell in love with this color – And as a daily doodling experience it really helped me plan the year, get clarity of my situation and by following my intuition to get a new job at a place that shares my deepest vision for my life purpose.
I sat down and doodled and listened to the messages and looked for the signs in my life. And took action immediately. Made the phone calls I was called to do, canceled the things I was called to cancel. And even when it felt like I’m nuts for letting go of Mira(cle) Monday Newsletters I felt called to do less social media, live here in the now and embrace the white space it would open up in my life. So now I will have a monthly update on what’s going on in my blog delivered to you who love to see my art.
The job I got is a perfect fit for me on every level and I mean like twelve levels if there’s typically ten maximum. There’s more than I expected and all the time new lessons are unfolding of how amazing it actually is. I found it with my intuition, just followed my “Oh YES!” feeling and took action. I never thought finding a job could be so effortless!
Oh and about “Feeling blue” yet… In the beginning of the year I was feeling blue and now I can see that it was cured with adding more blue in my life!
Talking about having a really clear inner eye here!!
What’s up with Blue?
Blue is the color of the third eye chakra (at the center of your forehead).
By adding more blue in your life you can boost your abilities to see the bigger picture and activate your intuition.
With this you start to trust your inner eye more. Take notice of what you are called to do and do it. Take action on your intuitive hunches and you’ll see your world change for better. And take those actions even if they feel like you’re nuts for doing so. (Well, don’t go harm anyone…)
How do you feel about blue?
Do you need a change in your life and feel you need to trust your inner eye more?
Try adding more blue in your life!
