Wrap it

Letting go of a negative situation or thought can be easier said than done. Given that, there’s something transformational that can happen by wrapping it up as a gift or a lesson learned.

One of our most favorite mind exercises is what we call “wrapping.” When a feeling, experience or thought limits us from moving forward, sometimes the best thing to do is to put it into a very special box in our mind, and wrap it with a certain color paper and bow.

Several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced chromotherapy, or using colors to heal. Chromotherapy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or colourology and is still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment.

• Red was used to stimulate the body and mind
• Orange was used to create warmth and increase energy
• Yellow was thought to motivate and purify
• Green was thought to relieve stress and provide good luck
• Blue was believed to soothe and calm
• Purple shades offered wisdom and spirituality

Warm colors including red, orange and yellow evoke emotions ranging from warmth and comfort to feelings of anger and frustration. Cool colors including blue, purple and green often are described as calming but can also stimulate feelings of sadness and indifference.

Below are a few color schemes to spark the vision in your mind. So, think about your package, picture it in your head, and wrap it wisely.
