Creativity: Magic of Colouring
by Shia Lynn
"You are never too old for colouring books." - The Artsy Craftsy 
Living On the Earth by Alicia Bay Laurel
A recent discovery in healing with colours has led me to realized that:
1. One is never too old for colours2. One is never too old for colouring
When you find yourself after a day of hard labour, or feeling blue, instead of drawing, you can always opt for colouring. Colouring is another ideal way todestress, if you find that drawing is quite a task (as some might say that theyare not quite an artist themselves). In the previous post on intuitive painting andmandalas, colouring serves as a form of therapy and does not require talent or skill. It is about being free and being in touch with your inner child; when youuse colours freely in colouring, you are expressing yourself by travelling inwardto your soul.
Why are Colours important?
Colours are important to us in our lives because they signifyeverything in this world, whether it is you or me as individuals, anobject, a picture, a scenery...When you are in touch with colours, itspeaks to your heart intuitively; you will be able to love yourself theway you love and appreciate every single colour on its own.

has its way in communicating with us or others, the way a paintingwith vibrant colours speaks to you. How?
When Colours Speak to You
Have you ever had an object or a picture, etc. caught your attention? I am prettysure it is not just because of the object on its own, but the colours as well.When it catches your attention, that is when the
 colours are speaking to you directly. 
Even if it is a black & white photography, which in my case, is myfavourite; but yet, that black & white colour creates a sorta' "timeless" feeling, asif you are travelling back in time to a memory that you wish you could hold on toforever. This is how colours can speak to you and affect your feelings andthoughts.
Going Back to Childhood
My experience with colours is a personal journey; have you ever wondered what is yours? 
I did not appreciate colouring when I was a little girl. I was young and felt it wastiring to fill the same spot with colours, especially if it is a large background; asky or the ground. I tried to avid colouring whenever possible, but my mother,however, would still buy tons of colouring books for me and encourage me tocolour. The only thing that enticed me to colour was giving the girl in the picturered lips, eyeshadows and red for hair. When i grew older, my fabric paintingmaster told me that my colour combination was poor and i needed to learn howto match colours. But with all divine love and light, i finally learned to love andmade friends with colours during my art therapy session. I learned that myfeelings and emotions can be identified through colours, because that is howmy soul communicates using my body. I appreciated every single colour for itsuniqueness and usefulness, even the colour pink! (for someone who lovesblack).Currently, i am inspired by the spiritual book 'Living On The Earth' by Alicia BayLaurel. I found the book in a secondhand bookstore and immediately fell in lovewith it when i flipped through the pages filled with elements to guide you on howto live on earth as one with the earth and appreciate every moment of it. I lovedit so much that, I wanted to fill its pages with colours that heals me.
