Color is my superpower. No matter if I’m painting in art class, designing web pages, or choosing what clothes to wear for the day, color is the primary weapon I use to master my own evolution as a spiritual being. Our words, thoughts and decisions are energetic statements in how we express our authentic self because everything is energy. Color freed me from a pivotal episode of self-doubt and assisted me in overcoming in-authenticity when I was in high school. My peers badgered me about my sexuality. I never consciously sat down and decided who I was proud to be attracted to or loved. I just genuinely loved everyone regardless if they were a male or female. As a result of never truly living up to gender specific expectations of society I was an easy target for bullying. I hated myself for living so out-of-the-box. But a field trip to an art museum in Philadelphia during my sophomore year ignited a conscious mind-shift in how I expressed myself. There I stood frustrated in the cramped gift shop determined to make a meaningful purchase. Nothing immediately screamed “me” until it was moments before we had to leave. I turned around (frantic at this point) to find a rack of scarves and matching glasses. An orange printed scarf hummed well with my soul and I felt a sense of readiness. As a bonus of color, I purchased the pair of orange framed glasses too because I felt smarter while trying it on and they were inexpensive. More bang for my buck! The orange colored goodies I bought that day not only transformed my wardrobe but encouraged excitement in my identity. I got to wear the orange scarf with my school uniform ( a dress code immunity) and a week later I courageously came out to my self about my sexuality. I am gay by fearlessly choosing to believe in my true self. That makes me happy. Since then I’ve graduated from high school and studied light and color at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in addition to gaining certifications in crystal healing, law of attraction and meditation. My love for color is not only fun but extremely sacred. I work as a color psychic to streamline intuitive impressions of people and their own life situations to crystals, chakras and colors in order to simplify their own individual frequency in this grand cosmos by delivering personal color readings.
One day I came out to help a mutual friend at her consignment shop in Northeast PA where I finally met Bernard in person. I had no idea what he did or what a color reading was. We spoke briefly & I eavesdropped as he spoke to people who stopped to get information on what he did. When it was slow he offered to do a reading for me and asked if I was open to it. I have always been open to anything having to do with the spiritual world especially because of my past experiences. I was intrigued, excited & had no expectations as this was all new, yet I was confident… As he began, his first words were “You are safe here. Nothing or no one can or will hurt you right here, right now.” I not only believed him, I felt it. I shuffled the cards, cut the deck & he “dealt” some out. I was happy to see some of my favorite colors especially my #1 which is Blue. As he explained each color, their significance, (good, bad or indifferent) I felt like a bobble-headed doll on the dash of a semi driving down a very steep bumpy road as I nodded in agreement…Everything he said either was something I recently just changed or needed to change which he or our mutual friend had no idea about. After we talked about the reading, he wrote the colors down & gave me some recommendations on how to incorporate them in my life to get the positive attributes from them. Two days later I received a sterling silver ring as a gift with 3 of the colors (it looked like a little piece of art I could wear). It was sent a day before the reading was ever done! My perspective has never been clearer nor my future goals seem more attainable until this reading. I’ve set boundaries (represented by brown) where I couldn’t before. Not only do I keep the color brown close, I feel a stronger connection to it. My awareness is on a level I didn’t know was possible. I’m so grateful I met Bernard & that I had this reading from him. He truly is a kindred spirit. I’ve always loved & been fascinated by all the colors of the earth. Now they reverberate loudly, beautifully, they guide me in the right direction gently, as long as I’m open & paying attention. – Amanda, Pennsylvania
