Most days I see a predominance of one or two coloured lights in the atmosphere. This can be any colour from the spectrum and it is a bit like an aura or a mist that is very subtle and changes all the other colours that I see.
All these new colours which may not blend well can confuse my brain, give me lots of nervous system symptoms and make me feel ungrounded.
When I can still pick up enough red in colour I feel ok but if I can’t pick up enough red I feel insecure.
Seeing colours looking strange so much makes it harder for me to embrace colour. For instance I get tired of seeing green as too bright, too pale, too blue so I try to avoid green. I become anxious around green. And I become like this with other colours too – for me also yellow and orange. These are colours that have less red in them and seem more likely to disturb.
What Can I Do?
I make a decision to take each colour I see on face value and not to pre-judge! I make a decision to embrace colour as much as I can. I recognise that colour nurtures me and that I need all the colours of the spectrum. I wear Irlen glasses (with coloured tints) and theses specifically help me to to see enough red in colours on those ‘funny colour’ days!
