What the colour of your nail varnish means for you

What your Nail Varnish Colour Says About You.

As a Reflexology Therapist, I am very drawn to feet.  Even though many people are squeamish about showing off their feet, it doesn’t bother me in the slightest, because every pair of feet I have the pleasure of meeting, tell me a story.  It could be findings I have come across as I perform reflexology, it could the where the calluses are placed on the feet, it could be the colour of nail varnish you wear on your toes.

Although you might think that you are picking a certain colour of nail varnish to maybe go with an outfit, it could also be that your subconscious is drawing you to a certain colour depending on what is going on in your life at that time and how you are feeling.  So here is a little run down of what the different colours mean;

Red – Energy

A lighter red indicates that you are an ambitious person whilst a darker red indicates that you wish you had more energy in your life to fulfil your ambitions.

Orange – Joy

Wearing the wonderful bright colour of joyful orange means you want to attract more fun in to your life.

Yellow – Detachment

A very bright person wears yellow.  You are full of curiosity and wish to attract more happiness in to your life.

Green – Harmony

If you wear green nail varnish, you tend to look for the best in everyone.  You strive for peace and calm in your life.

Blue – Relaxation

Wearing blue indicates that you wish to attract patience, perseverance and peacefulness into your life.  You also want to attract truthfulness and honesty.

Indigo – Perception

Do you want to be more perceptive and intuitive ?  When you want to achieve something difficult, you will wear this colour.

Violet – Dignity

You will wear violet if you want to be respected for who you are.

Magenta – Compassion

Wearing this colour indicates that you would like to be more organised and feel better about yourself.  Magenta is the colour used to help us let go of the past and  to change any habits which no longer serves us.  It is the colour of compassion and nurturing.

White – Completeness

Wearing white nail varnish indicates that you want to attract more peace and overcome problems in your life.  It tends to be worn by people who are feeling stressed out.

Black – Control

Black is worn by people who want to ward off negativity or want to stand on their own to feet and face their fears.

Brown – Comfort

Do you want to attract more comfort and security in to your life ?  People who wear this colour also want to feel safe and grounded.

Pink – Love

Wearing pink indicates that you want to attract more love and affection in to your life.

Gold – Maturity

You wear gold when you need to meet new challenges and sparkle.

Silver – Reflective

Silver is the colour to wear when you are going through a phase of reflection and want to resolve emotional disputes and stay calm.

Turquoise – Independence

Wearing turquoise indicates that you want to attract more freedom and independence in to your life.

The power of positive thinking

The Power of Positive Thinking

 

I love this quote by Dr. Swati Kannan;

Whatever you believe in your heart
to be true is a reality in your life.
As a result, you then attract events,
experiences and people in your life
to match your ‘loves’ or ‘beliefs’.

 

I am really good at talking to my children about thinking positively and up until now, haven’t been so good at doing it myself.  Like my son said to me last week, mammy, I might get 60% in my French in the Summer exam, and he would be happy with this because it is not a subject that he excels in.  However, if you aim for 60% you have already limited yourself.  We had a little chat about being a little bit more positive and maybe aim for a higher result, just to push the potential a little further.

I find that sometimes I get bogged down with what life throws at me that I don’t stop to think of the good in a situation. And like lots of people I talk myself out of achieving my goals before I ever take my first steps towards achieving them.  So, to bring positivity back in to my life, there are a number of things which I make time to do in the morning and they really set me up for the day.  Like most things, positive thinking is a habit which you can change and there are a number of ways to do this. Repetition is key. They are;

Self Hypnosis

I first came across Self Hynosis whilst reading the book “My Life Goals Journal” by Andrea Hayes.  It is all about journaling and writing out your goals so you have them in front of you and can assess them every day.  And, as part of this book, I was pointed to Andrea’s website www.andreahayes.ie where she has month by month Self Hynosis audios to listen to and are free to access by anyone.  What self hypnosis does, is move your goals and beliefs from your conscious mind, in to your subconscious mind.  It has proven to be very effective in helping people to change their thought processes and eventually behaviours, making you more confident and focussed on achieving your intentions and goals.  So I am a work in progress on this one !!!

Meditation

There are two types of meditations which I do to get rid of my “Brain Junk”.  The first one is from headspace.com which teaches you how to be mindful in many different situations.  I first came across this when I went through a phase of bad insomnia and found it great for relaxation and also a great way to manage things which worry me or cause anxiety.  With Headspace, they offer you 10 minutes for 10 days free and then if you like it, you can sign up.

The second type of meditations I do are the Visualization type meditations.  There are numerous ones on Youtube to suit every taste.  I like to do meditations to balance my energy centres and also some to manifest my goals.  Imagining what you want to achieve keeps you focussed on your goals and what you want from your life.

Mantras

Mantras or Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains.  Much like exercise, they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of “positive thought” neurons.  Just saying positive mantras in your head every day can make your day more positive.  Here are some mantras I have come across but you can make up your own too;

  • Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy
  • My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil
  • My marriage is becoming stronger, deeper, and more stable each day
  • I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends
  • I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is soaring
  • I am conquering my illness; I am defeating it steadily each day
  • My fears of tomorrow are simply melting away
  • I overcome fears by following my dreams

 

It is reported that Positive thinking has many health benefits such as;

  • helps lower stress in the body
  • lowers rates of depression
  • increases your lifespan
  • better relationships as you look for the good in everyone
  • because of the reduction in stress, it lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease
  • better coping skills when you’re going through a rough patch
  • boosts your motivation so you can reach your goals
  • more successful
  • your inner beauty will shine as happy smiley people are more attractive

So its definitely worth a try.  Remember……
