If I were a crayon….
Well, shoot *why* would I be a crayon?! I’m having trouble thinking about being in a box, hoping someone would open the cover so I could get some fresh air, then choose me so I could have fun adding to the picture.
But…if I were a crayon…I would know I had chosen to be a crayon and/or events aligned in Universe for me to be in that particular box and I would be the best crayon I could be!
I would probably choose to be a green crayon because green is the color of heart energy in the chakra system and I’m all about *sharing heart*.
(Or, I might choose to be the yellow-ish orange crayon because it’s a color of joy and we can all use more joy in our lives.)
I am certain I would be a glittery-crayon.
I would make sure to wiggle enough to draw attention to my entire row in the box so that the person coloring would choose all of the crayons around me, too.
I would manifest in a great, open crayon container so we could all breathe fresh air in between coloring sessions and we’d be out in the open, somewhere that we are seen daily so we get plenty of color-time.
I would be a magical crayon so when the person colors with me, they feel heart-energy and joy in their physical realm of being, as they create on paper and in life.
I think I might prefer to be in the home or space of a person feeling emotional or energetic pain or sadness like an elderly person without local family or a wee tot with parents who are ultra-busy and not fully present or someone who has just lost a loved one (to life’s unfolding); has just learned of a medical issue; is in some sort of life transition that has them questioning their beliefs and wondering if love truly matters.
It does!!! and somehow together we would color that knowing right back into their lives.
I am sure it doesn’t matter what we color: blank sheets of paper, pictures in a coloring book, sketches we have drawn.
I am sure it doesn’t matter how we color: pressing down hard on the paper and scribbling away, with a light swish, great focus and precision staying within the lines or mixing colors as we go.
I think it matters only *that* we color – for creative expression is a flow of heart energy, naturally healing and heart-opening as we are present to it, whether we are in the loveliest of moods or not.
I would beam encouragement to each person who colored with me and/or experienced my crayon energy through whatever I’ve contributed to – dissolving self-judgment and criticism (in creative expression and also in life) while amplifying self-love and grace.
(Huh, maybe I am a crayon!)
If I were a crayon, I would understand that my part in whatever was created was ‘perfect’ and it’s not for me to attempt to manipulate the quality of what was created or change the shape or form in any way.
And, although I would radiate love, peace, joy and encouragement, I would understand that some people might not choose me to create with *and* they might cover up my color with darker shades thinking it was ‘too much’ (too vibrant, colorful, bold, shiny) to leave as is. I’d be okay with that and I wouldn’t interfere with the process (although I would keep on radiating in my ‘joyful crayon’ way).
If I were a crayon, I would understand that there would be a risk that someone might push too hard and I would break and maybe they’d tape me up or maybe they’d leave me in little pieces…..or they might peel my wrapper off…..or drop me in the dirt …..and then be less than enthusiastic about creating with me from then on. It’s okay, I’d still wiggle enough to be noticed again, because I’d want to be out and around sharing my colorful energy and when I wasn’t chosen I’d be beaming energy to the crayons that were and to the person using them.
If I were a crayon, I might be concerned about the longevity of my job – some people think there is an age-cap on coloring, and there are a myriad of wonderful creative tools to use. I would know, though, that the heart energy that flowed lives on forever and I would be glad to have contributed to that flow, in my own ‘little’ way.
Whew, that was a quite a stretch – thank you for your presence as I participate in this week’s Finish the Sentence Friday (click the link if you’d like to know more about this free, fun blog link-up group) hosted this week by Alyssa from Babies, Bloodhounds & Booze, Oh My! and Kristi from Finding Ninee (their blog links are to their responses to this weeks “If I Were a Crayon” prompt – links to the other bloggers articles are at the end of theirs.)
Dear Reader: As you read my response to “If I were a crayon”, and consider the energy of what I’ve shared in your own life, what arises within? And, what is one of your favorite colors to create with?
Thank you for your presence!
Much peace and abundant love,
I am not offering ecourses in January. I am, however, offering personal sessions, which are available in different packages via email or Skype. I specialize in positive parenting (a child and/or your inner child), heart healing, understanding your patterns, shifting energy into a more expansive space, manifesting in a specific area, moving as peacefully as possibly through a life transition and dream-tending.
