This abstract painting presents a spectrum of astral colours associated with our mental and emotional states. Life has its ups and downs. We go through high points and low points in life. There are times when we feel elated and hopeful. There are times when we feel down spirited and defeated. Our mental state affects our aura. The important thing is to not give up, to remain hopeful and stay focused on the positive aspects of life.
“Subtle astral colours… are hidden in everything around you. Could you but see, you would be amazed at their beauty.” Paramhansa Yogananda
The message of this abstract painting is to remain hopeful despite adversity. It is not what happens in life, but it is how we deal with it that matters the most. It is our mental make up that allows us to focus on the positive. Notice the silhouette of birds in the painting. They symbolize freedom, exploration discovering of new pathways. Even amid failure and setback, hope flutters like a little bird with wings, urging us to keep going, continue our efforts and search for a brighter tomorrow.
“Clairvoyants can see flashes of colour, constant change in the aura that surrounds every person: each thought, each feeling, thus translating itself in the astral world,visible to the astral sight.” – Annie Besant
Have you thought about what are the astral colours? They are related to our physical, mental and emotional states. These colours are associated with a subtle plane, our aura that exists over and above the physical plane in our mind, body and intellect. The primary colours, red, blue and yellow along with their hues and tints are associated with the subtle energy fields of mind and body. Red is associated with the physical part of life, the vitality of the body, passion; blue represents spirituality, high ideals, altruism; yellow is associated with intellect, reasoning,judgement; white is the blending of all colours, the pure spirit of being; black is the opposite of that.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
