“Colour your life outside the lines”
– Sonya Watson –
Back in February of 2019, I said goodbye to my beautiful stepfather. After about five months in hospital fighting variousinfections he finally let go. To be honest it took me a little by surprise. Only a couple of weeks prior to this, the team of doctors and therapists looking after him told the family to prepare for his discharge from hospital. This news excited him. He was so over being in hospital. All he wanted was to get out of there. A few days later he got his wish.
I have seen bodies of loved ones before. There is something rather warm and beautiful about it. The experience with mystepfather was so very different. It felt cold and colourless. I felt that the only life in the room was in the quillow that lay gently on top of his bed. Covered in cats and bursting with colour, it was a welcome distraction.
I made the quillow (a quilt that folds into a pillow see image above) many years ago for my mum. The brightness of the colours were so her. She loved that quillow. It was a constant companion, particularly when she had hospital stays. It brightened her room when she didn’t have the energy to.
In the final few months of my stepfather’s life it has done the same for him. It brightened his room when he didn’t have the energy to. One quiet Sunday morning the energy of that rainbow coloured cat quillow carried out its final task for a beautiful man. It filled a room that was devoid of life force energy, and it did so brilliantly.
The energy of the whole experience left me chilled. It was cold and lacked colour. The only warmth I could find came from the rainbow coloured quillow. This got me thinking.
What was it in the colours that brought life to a lifeless situation?
Colour is a form of light that is able to be seen by you. One of the most beautiful examples of this phenomenon is a rainbow.
The energy of colour affects you on all levels.
Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Colours have the power to influence your mood, calm your nervous system and make your environments more peaceful. I certainly would have appreciated some colour in my stepfather’s room to support my sister and I as we said our goodbyes. Come to think about it, the entire hospital could have done with an injection of healing colours.
Jacob Olesen, creator of, says the seven best colours for healing in a hospital are:-
Red is a warm a passionate colour which brings vitality and stimulates energy. A top healing colour for overall vitality. It gives energy on all levels as it represents the colour of life.
Orange is an emotional stimulant. It radiates warmth and is associated with joy and happiness. It is a great colour forhospitals, particularly children’s rooms.
This bright and cheerful colour can stimulate intelligence and inspire creativity in people who feel sluggish or lethargic.
Green is known for its powerful healing properties. Cleansing and balancing to our whole being, it is a restful colour giving a feeling of growth and renewal. It is thought to be beneficial for the heart, lungs and circulatory system.
Blue is a spiritual colour associated with calm and serenity. It is relaxing for the mind and body and thought to be ideal forsleep problems and hyper-active children. It is associated with organs like the eyes, ears and nose, and involved with the senses of smell, sight and sound.
Like green, pink is a soothing colour and is linked to the heart chakra. It reflects caring and affection. It is a protective and compassionate colour that heals and soothes.
Purple, violet, lilac and lavender are connected with spirituality, perception and insight. From the physical perspective they are linked with the cerebral and nervous systems.
Colour is a visible form of energy that can have a profound impact on you.
By knowing how each colour influences you, you can effectively use colour to support yourself through your day. Whether it be a boost of energy or the need for some peace and serenity, there is a colour that, through its own uniquehealing frequency, can assist your feeling of overall wellbeing.
