Colors can be a very strong influence in our lives. Are you not sure about that? Think about your favorite color. Why do you like it so much over other colors? How does it make you feel? Colors can influence us.
Orange is a warming color. It has the same light of sunrises and sunsets which encourage sensitivity to creative ideas and contemplation. When you stop and think about how watching a sunset makes you feel it makes sense.
I have an abundance of orange around me. I find it to be helpful as I live a creative life. On days when I wake feeling out of sorts I always reach for something orange to wear. I find it energizes me and allows the creative energy to flow. Most of the photos on my walls are of orange flowers. My screensaver is an orange flower. And the notebook where I record thoughts for my website and photography ideas, well it has an orange cover.
If you're not sure that surrounding yourself with the color orange will work to stimulate your creativity? Give it a try. When you are feeling stuck or in a creative rut take a little time to meditate on an orange flower. See if your mind doesn't start to think more creatively. Try it out and let me know how it works for you.
