Rainbow Addendum

In my previous post, for The Sandbox Challenge Loosening Up Exercise, one of the lists was:
“If you were asked to choose seven colors that have meaning for you, what colors would you choose?”

I left out the why or what about each color draws me in. Giving it thought, here is what tumbled out of my mind:

Red, orange and yellow are the colors of Autumn, which is probably what I love most about that season. I’m lucky to live in the Northeast where the changing of the leaves is quite spectacular.  Green is the color of spring and summer, which are my favorite seasons, and there’s nothing like looking out at a lush green garden. Blue, indigo and violet are the colors of some of the beautiful flowers which grace the warm months of the year.  I have noticed when I close my eyes, in meditation, the richness of all of these colors blossoming like flowers before my eyes.  If I’m thinking correctly these are also the colors of the chakras. And who doesn’t love rainbows?

Hope this answers the question of why these colors?
