In my quest for my true self over the last few months, the color purple in all its variants – from lavender over violet, magenta, blue violet to indigo – already crossed my path several times.
Superstition…? It’s up to you…
The amethyst: this purple gemstone has found a place around my neck since a few months.
For me personally purple symbolizes my transmutation*. At this time that word won’t tell you much, I will come back to this in a moment.
Being fish as a constellation, this mineral contributes to the development of my crown chakra and my third eye (forehead chakra).
Yes you understand this clearly, the stone has an energetic effect.
Not only does it physically balance the nervous system and the brain, it also makes the mind clear, so that alcohol and drugs have a less quick hold on you (not that that’s really a problem for me now, or is it?).
On an emotional level, this stone gains you insights into the causes of behavior and emotional patterns that lead to imbalance. This stone helps you to take your own responsibility and feel at home on earth (and in the meantime I manage this quite ‘worldly’).
And yes, all good things consist of three. Also on a spiritual level this stone has a great added value.
Oops, a too floating story for you? Hold on a little longer, or not.
Here we go…
This stone helps you to see your own spiritual strength , it opens and purifies your third eye (one eye extra, handy, wouldn’t you think?). Therefore it gives a stimulus to the development of your clear abilities and intuition and also helps you to attune the physical reality to your spiritual purpose.
(*) Now it might be useful to tell something about my transmutation. This is a shift from fear into love, knowing compassion and feeling the connection with your own heart, to give yourself grace. That ensures your contact with your self-esteem value and self-respect and gives you a sense of strength, dignity and determination.
I better explain this in my case.
At some point in my life I began to feel my values were no longer in line with those of society, where everything is based on fear. When I was following a program to rediscover my creativity, I came to the conclusion that I actually had no life of my own and I started to check how much of my time on earth I lived for the approval of others…
I can assure you that this came as a shock!
I actually found out that I had not learned to appreciate and respect myself and thus did not stand up enough for myself. Hard work, make sure that you and your family do not fall short while meanwhile unknowingly failing yourself…
To get angry? Not me! Why not? Who claims that…?
To allow emotions, no, that was not an option for me. Follow my heart and intuition no, I thought I did… and always for the approval of others. Pain and grief, I’ll take that on me, I’ll buffer that. No wonder stress and physical problems appear due to this loss of energy.
People speak quite a lot about the ecology of our planet lately, but my own ecology didn’t look good for quite some time and I had no eye for that, I was not aware of that.
I started asking myself questions about my ecology: ‘ What do I want for myself? ‘, then ‘ What do I need? ‘ and final ‘ What is needed? ‘.
And yes, when I learned to reclaim my creativity, I started to rediscover it and therefore I was at the wheel of my life again – instead of being driven by society – and therefore going against the flow. Now I started to see solutions instead of problems. Enough of pointing my finger at others and sticking my head in the sand , no, taking responsibility and giving myself full freedom to put myself down to earth, in a way I finally wanted to: “I am, I am, I am! So it is, and so it will be! “.
Time to allow myself to love myself – and no, don’t confuse this with selfishness or narcissismness- and respect myself . High time to reconnect with the things I lost sight of, once again feel a drive waking up every morning and be happy and grateful at the end of every day.
Once I started to surrender to that and that I accepted what had been, it became clear to me that I – like all of us – am full of contradictory limiting beliefs that make me drag unnecessary ballast. I’ll save you all of these, though, I’ll give you a threesome as a gift anyway: ‘ I’m not intelligent enough ‘, ‘ I can’t get angry ‘ and ‘ I will never be good enough’.
It is a fact that our human brain only absorbs 1% of all the stimuli and the remaining 99% gets in our unconscious mind (subconscious). So we have the answers in us, but we don’t always have access to them.
To learn to understand that unconsciousness, gain access to it and to make that useful to my self-development, therefore I started to delve into NLP -Neuro linguistic Programming – and the Ericksonian Hypnosis, which is the basis of NLP.
Was it by chance that Milton Erickson, the man who created this hypnosis, usually wore purple clothes because this was the only color he could differentiate from others as a color blind.
The variant in violet can be found in my logo, as a trio with light blue and gold.
The violet stands for self-esteem and can evoke feelings of deep relaxation.
The light blue stands for all clear beliefs that come to you: to support you, to give you complete freedom, to put you on earth, in the way you want to yourself.
Gold bundles energy, gives a feeling of warmth, love, compassion and helping others.
The variant blue violet can be found on my website. This is the exact color of my amethyst and also the color of the saffron flower – which is then again the meaning of First Name Mamo.
And so the circle is complete.
So, this is my first blog ever and thanks for keeping it up to this point. Maybe it’s up to you to think about your path, or not?
I wish you much color, love and respect on your path!
Let it be above all a path of surrender and grace.
