More and more we are becoming aware of the powerful effect colour has over our mental, emotional and physical state of being.
Just thinking of different colours can shift us in or out of certain states. Choosing a birthing colour can be a powerful way of anchoring in the feelings and emotions you wish to experience on your birthing day and into your journey as a parent.
So how do you choose a colour that is right for you?
Following your initial instincts is the best way. There is already a part of you that knows what this colour is. It may be a colour that you already like, or it could be different.
Here is a process you may like to follow to find your birthing colour...
If you didn’t gain awareness of your birthing colour from this practice, be kind to yourself, give yourself some space and time and then try it again.
If you noticed worry or tension arising from this practice, you may benefit from releasing fear about your birthing day before trying this again.
When you have your birthing colour, what can you do with it?
Most important is to take moments throughout your day to think of your colour and enjoy the positive feelings it creates in your body and mind.
