Colour Breathing

This week is all about colour.. I hope you are enjoying the self hypnosis script I gave you a couple of weeks ago. You may already find you are adapting it and making it completely yours. Perhaps you have tried using it with the counting breathing technique. That is exactly as it should be so continue to be as creative as you want. You will know what is best for you.

Colour to help you focus and change

Today I’m going to show you another breathing technique which I absolutely love. This one uses colour to help you focus and change.

First decide what colour you want to work with. Go with your instincts on this, but often people find that certain colours lead to certain feelings and thoughts. A good guide is

·         Red for energy

·         Orange for self-expression

·         Gold for wisdom

·         Yellow for optimism

·         Green for relaxation

·         Blue for calm

·         Violet for imagination

 

Work with one thing at a time

Choose what you want to work on today. Perhaps you feel you would like more energy, or you want to focus on how wise you are and how wise you can become. Don’t try to do everything at once. Pick on one thing to work on at one time. The colour which will support you will become obvious to you.

Then take yourself to a quiet place and practise your counting breathing. When you feel a sense of calm imagine that you are surrounded by your chosen colour. If you find this difficult to imagine, then think of a balloon in the colour and imagine the balloon deflating and the colour streaming from the balloon and filling the room.

Feel the colour

Imagine the colour growing like a soft dry mist and surrounding you. You can put out your hand to touch it. Then focus on your breathing, as you breathe feel yourself breathing in the colour. Feel the  colour travelling through your body. Take your time. Feel the colour entering your lungs, then entering your bloodstream and spreading around your body. Feel the colour going right to the extremities of your body Focus on your feet. . .and on your hands. Feel the colour going up your nose as you breathe and travelling up to the top of your head.

Notice the sensations the colour brings. Continue to do this for as long as you feel you want to.

Colour your world the way you want.
