Hi, I have been making a lot of videos about how I perceive light and colour in a different way to those around me. I have often wondered if I am ‘seeing’ differently or more ‘processing’ differently so I bought myself a spectrometer!
My Discoveries & Thoughts
I AM like a human spectrometer! I constantly perceive subtle changes in the colour spectrum in the atmosphere. For instance just looking at the sky I can perceive when there is an increase in violet light or decrease in red light. I have tested my observations with my spectrometer readings and they have been correct.
(incidentally my colour sensitivity is so extreme that I can’t look at the intensity of a colour spectrum so my husband removed the colour and sent me a black and white line graph for my observation.)
HOWEVER I see light and colour differently to those around me. My brain sometimes processes the relative intensity of wave lengths incorrectly meaning that I might perceive some wave lengths as less intense than I see on my spectrometer making some colours appear drab and others too bright.
ALSO I feel the change in the light as much as I perceive it visually. I know if there is more violet light because I will feel more intuitive or suddenly have a desire to eat crunchy food. I know if there is more red light because I will feel less grounded and have a desire to eat softer foods.
SOLUTION I live by the light meaning that from when I get up the morning I have half an eye out to check what the light is doing. How I see the light affects all my choices of the day – what I wear, what I eat, what I do and how I relate to myself and other people. When I perceive more violet light I am more creative and intuitive. When I perceive more red light I am more into my home projects. When I perceive more yellow light I enjoy relationship with other people more.
