Happy New Year and Start Anew: 2019 PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral: A colour for your flower choices, that invites us to enjoy experiencing our true self.

Beloved Flower Lover,

We love you so we are asking you , how can we approach the use of Living Coral 16-1546 Pantone colour of the year? For your life? For your colour choice of flowers?

You are free to choose your approach. That’s the freedom we are reminded of as we think about the Pantone colour of 2019.

A Few Questions

  1. If you wear or use other colours are you outside of ‘grace’?
  2. Is it really about being told what the colour is and how we should be acting and looking like which is not necessarily in line with our own image of ourself?
  3. What happens if we are not clear about who we are?
  4. what happens if we feel we do not have that colour or external thing that we have been told will make the difference to us.?
  5. What happens if the colours we use are considered, ugly?
  6. What ? so what?

Don’t get us wrong, we love colour and love that fact that we have people, like the pantone crew, who guide us and allow us to think more about colour and so on.

PANTONE’s say,

Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.

Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.

Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

Pantone Colour of 2019

We all can benefit from external validation- lets be honest

External confirmation is a tricky thing. We love to do our own thing and although we say, it’s not about the colour that someone else is telling us that we need . Perhaps we do need to get some external confirmations. Feedback is a powerful thing. Imagine we realise that we are being listened to and we get that confirmation by wearing the ‘so called right colour, outfit, makeup’.  Sometimes we need to have that conversation with others and then perhaps through that process we find our own answers.

Sometimes we need to just be soft with ourselves as we realise that we are looking for external validation. As we come to others for validation and direction. It’s a bit like working with a teacher until we grow in our own confidence.

Yes, as we grow, we are learning to let go of our youthful inexperience.  So perhaps it’s  as much about what we say to ourselves during this period of time when we look to others for guidance and external validation.Whilst on one hand – what if the healing for 2019 is not about getting externally validated from the living coral scheme. Supposed its a year when we decide what we mean for ourselves first.

Maybe?

Orange, Coral,  really is what we need this year. The colour that we can unravel in during this year. The year  that we can express our social  collective selves.

  1. What if you yourself write down what  your product is. Be clear.

What if you today is about being clear about yourself. You, we will be held accountable by the seeds we have to plant. How do we see ourselves, and the price we give for ourselves. Please do not forget who you are this year. Identity is more about what is coming through us, rather than what is being given to us.

We love the fact that there are people out there spending time on helping us to be better than before. And we acknowledge the Pantone team’s skill.

The Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.

Yes, we like the idea of being given the idea that the coral colour is the Pantone colour for 2019. However to start anew for us means that we decide  what we really want to feel ourselves experiencing for ourselves this year.

Red and Yellow create orange- think about it-feel the joy of the colours!

Think about the Pantone colour of 2019. It’s an Orange, which is in fact a combination of red and yellow. How will you respond to that vibration? That energy of fun!

We are the keepers of our own temple.Yes we do not need to be defined by others and we can stop acting for camera’s and other peoples ideas of what our life should look like. We are keepers of our own temple, we can clean  our live up using colours of fun, joy, optimism as we  keep  looking at ourselves from self love.

 

Happy New Year

Get a good night sleep-do less, say less, surround yourself with beautiful flowers – its the Winter Solstice season

Beloved Flower Lover,

Get to bed before midnight she said to herself.

She realized it was the season for resting. She knew that if she was living in the countryside that she would really be in tune with nature. But being a city girl she knew that she had to apply the same principles that she would be using if she was a country girl.  She put flowers in her home and spent more time sleeping more, eating less and just being more internal. Reflecting on her past year.

She knew the year was over. It is not a time to start any new project. Its the time to reflect, rest and rejuvenate. So when all the buds rise in spring that they would be gorgeous.

It’s solstice time and that is the time for rest so that when the vigor for the new year comes forward.

Rest, rest, rest.

Prepare to be the gift of flowers yourself

May we invite you to take a deep breathe as you appreciate that every one of us on this planet that is animated by life is a part of who we are.

And in that recognition, the idea of Otherness is released.

And the idea of Oneness is welcomed.

And as the idea of Oneness is welcomed the reality of connection is realized.

We, you, are connected to everything on the planet in a meaningful way.

And as we grow and evolve, so does everything that we are apart of.

Grows and evolves.

And so on behalf of individual evolution that impacts Universal evolution we are embracing the Oneness of us, the transformation of us, the remarkableness of you, of us, the beauty of you, embracing it, the ordinariness of you and us, the self compassion .

We are simple, ordinary and One .

And  as each breathe takes us deeper into that dark space, of the deepest dark, we let go of all  ideas of separation.

We are One

We are One

We are One

We are already in that insularity of animated action.

We all come from that one breathe, that one breathe, that Oneness…

so..

It’s a time for deep sleep,

It’s a time for deep sleep,

It’s a time for deep sleep,

Self care is Universal care

As we care for the intimacy of our own being,

We are then caring for that part of us that is in us all.

Your self care is Universal care

And the more that it is prioritized,

your self care,

nourishes everyone.

 

So self care is in fact the most selfless thing you can engage.

And in your self care,

You find that you are more and more comfortable with the unknown.

As you allow it to increasingly represent the vastness of possibility

You are more and more comfortable, as what appears to be the unknown, is in fact the vastness of possibility.

So you move through that vastness of possibility,

in that vastness of possibility, confident, strong, beautiful and purposeful.

And so public eyes registering as your own eyes,

Discovery,

Understanding,

Increasingly comfortable with public view, the universality

Embracing of it,

Recharged from it,

In agreement with it,

Self care and comfortable with the unknown

And the public recognition is in fact you own internal recognition as you accept and embrace through each breathe….

It get’s clearer and clearer and clearer,

You and  the other fellows of life are one,

Expressions of one life,

As we notice ourselves relaxed,

Our lashes fluttering,

As we take another deep breathe,

We come to appreciate that this seed of an idea only grows into the beautiful flower that our life is,

and becomes,

For the coming year

You are welcomed, connected and loved

Happy Solstice
