Purple portrays spirituality, fulfilment, and extravagance. A combination of blue and red, this sacred and royal colour uplifts spirits, calms the mind and nerves, represents feminine energy as well as romantic and nostalgic feelings. We associate purple with nurturing and energetic flow … it soothes confrontations and re-energizes your desire to learn new things, which stimulates imagination and creativity.
This is your opportunity to connect with the colour’s beauty, health, and diversity in our shared world …expand the foods you nourish yourself with and get out into nature … colour is an amazing guide!
The Purple Challenge:
Eat something purple.
Try forbidden rice, eggplant, blackberries, açai, kale, cauliflower, or plums. What is your favourite purple food? Can you try something new? How do purple foods make you feel? Did you know purple foods are rich in anthocyanins? Do you eat a rainbow every day?
Connect to something in nature that is purple.
Pansies, bougainvillea, berries, lavender, hummingbirds, beets, or the sky at sunset … look around. When you go outside, are you conscious of all that surrounds you? Does it take you to a place of awe and wonder? What is nature gifting you today?
