Inspiration: A palm reader I met randomly one day telling me to “Eat More Peaches”
Color: Bright, creamy & peachy!
Story: I met a stranger one day whilst hanging my artwork in the city, who asked to read my palm for an energy exchange of $10. Something compelled me to say yes – he had a calm friendly way about him and I thought “hey I may learn something”. So I sat down and listened intently as he described my life – not saying a word to give “anything away”. After about 15 minutes of talking, he looked into my eyes, smiled and told me to eat more yellow & orange food in my diet.
“Eat more peaches” he said.
Now this perplexed me a little. “What does that mean?” I thought. He asked me some personal questions about my health, intuitively knowing what was currently ailing me which both surprised me and comforted me. “Eating these yellow/orange kinds of foods will help balance you again and help”.
This wandering soul of a man inspired me to explore further as the words “eat more peaches” come back often to remind me. Yellow and orange are the colors of the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakra’s and when they are out of balance can be linked to digestion/intestinal problems, which sheds the light on that conversation! So I now often enjoy a bowl of cereal with peaches. He would be so proud. 🙂 Yummmm
My exploration of color, the chakra system and energy continues……… (more on Tuesday)
OMG ~ I must eat more peaches. This picture is so mouth watering. Orange is also my favorite color, and your picture description is definitely right on ~ bright, creamy and peachy!
What beautiful photos! The colours are so cheerful and uplifting. I love fresh peaches, and that tart – well, I would like to eat that right now!!
the computer just ate my comment. nasty computer.
I was just saying how much i love the colours in this post. They are so full of spring and in the midst of Melbourne’s winter I could really use some Spring. Love the story that goes with it too.
I thought you might like to check out my friend Kitty’s blog http://kittyskaboodle.blogspot.com/ She does a Wednesday colour post every week.
What an uplifting, enlightening post, Louise! I took yoga a few years ago and my eyes were opened to the chakras and their correspondence to the parts of the body. I regret quitting, as my health conditions (asthma and interstitial cystitis) seemed to improve a great deal thanks to the relaxation aspects of the practice. I’ve also heard that any deeply colored fruit or veggie is always a good pick due to naturally occurring nutrients and antioxidants…and peaches definitely fall into this category. This summer I’ve been devouring strawberries on a regular basis, and I think they’re really doing me well!:-)
Dearest sweet Louise, these is a beatiful set of colors! Very bight and gorgeous! I always love the color of a peach. Have alovely merry happy week and love to you!
