Life is Beautiful with Rose-colored Glasses




There’s a scene in the movie, Romancing the Stone, where a group of drug dealers are pointing guns at our heroes and Jack Colton says to his romance novelist companion: "Okay, Joan Wilder, write us out of this one."

I’ve always liked that line. And if I could write an alternative plot to our current situation, I can assure you it would not include social distancing, mask wearing, empty shelves in supermarkets nor coffins inside makeshift morgues at skating rinks.

I would put on my rose-colored glasses and write us out of this awful story. I would make us brave and hopeful and positive. I would write about being grateful for green grasses, blue skies, yellow daffodils, and turquoise waters. I would describe a wonderful world of unconditional love and beauty, a refuge where fear and anger simply do not exist. That’s what I would do if I was wearing rose-colored glasses.

"Wearing rose-colored glasses" is a term used to describe a person who sees only the positive in the negative.

When we take a closer look at the color in our rose-colored glasses, we find a gentle tint of Pink. With rose, your energy isn't consumed with anger and hate. Rose inspires you to see the world anew, to develop compassion for yourself as well as others. It helps you feel and appear more youthful, improves tunnel vision, and reduces computer eye strain.

And with so many people taking anti-depressants these days, wearing rose-colored glasses is a more pleasant alternative to taking Prozac.

But whether you choose to wear rose-colored glasses or not, our planet is emerging into a new Earth and will never be the same again. That, I believe, is the truth. And for some, the truth is unsettling because so much darkness has been exposed and they don’t know how to cope.

The other day I saw a quote by Australian author Christine Caine that stopped me right in my tracks:


Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but you’re actually planted.


Wow. Think about that for a moment.

What if you are actually here at this time in our planet’s history, not to struggle, but to thrive? What if you are here to grow with Light, to bloom where you are planted? To give comfort and beauty to your friends and neighbors?

If we are to have a blissful New Earth, we need to shift our consciousness. We need to cast aside our darkest fears and focus instead on co-creating a planet of Light.

Fortunately, there are two very important high vibrational, heart-expanding colors that can help us achieve this: Pink and Turquoise.

Pink has been called "The Great Improver." It is a gentle, loving color used to establish compassion and self love. Pink is the color of newness, awakening, connecting you with your Inner Child. With the Pink vibration, you learn how to play and to see beauty in all things.

The color Turquoise is that wonderful blue-green combination that helps you find the peace within and it also encourages you to share that peace with others. Turquoise is known for strengthening your immunity and your manifesting skills, reminding you that anything is possible. With Turquoise, you can create an abundance of new thoughts and things. Your creative expression is expanded.

Together, Pink and Turquoise make quite the colorful dream team.

They help you become self-sufficient and to create and communicate through the high heart, bringing more harmony, balance, and respect into your life. Doesn’t that sound like a better way to co-create a new normal?

Here’s an assignment. For at least 21 days, try breathing, wearing, and surrounding yourself with the colors Pink and Turquoiseand notice how much better you feel!
