Intuition Game: The Color Yellow

To play this Intuition Game, be sure to scroll down to the Rafflecopter entry and follow the directions there. One randomly chosen winner will win a mini Numerology reading from Rob!

In this exploration we’re working with color. Keep a journal about your thoughts on colors. People ask me about dreams they’ve had and one of the first questions I ask is, “What colors appeared in your dream?”

Many issues add to the meaning behind colors in our lives. Our family of origin and our cultural upbringing will affect our feelings on particular colors. For instance, white is used for weddings and celebrations in some cultures, but is also used in other cultures as the dominant funerary color. If you had a dream where white was a prominent color, how would you feel? Your feelings would likely be based on your upbringing, but you might not be conscious of this.

For this exploration we are connecting with the color yellow. What are your associations to it? Notice feelings, sensations and memories that arise when you see it.

For myself, one of my powerful associations around this color involves wiffle ball. As a child, I remember playing countless hours playing ball with the slightly heavy yellow plastic bat in my back yard or at picnics and especially family gatherings. It was always there. We played in the backyard, on the beach, in the pool and in the park. I wasn’t athletic, but the game was enjoyed by my family and was a big part of my spring and summer as I was growing up.

When I see yellow, these memories are always in the back of my mind. These recollections may not always consciously come up, but there are strong ties to them. Recognizing the connections, I can use the information to better understand my dreams, tarot card readings or life events where yellow appears. For instance, I could look at a dream that featured yellow and explore how it relates to family and social issues in my life.

As you begin to intuitively explore this color, you can pay special attention to dreams, movies, television and events where yellow appears prominently. Notice and record all of your sensations. There are no wrong answers. Simply record whatever comes up for you.

What are your memories, thoughts, feelings and emotions around Yellow?.

We will talk more about this on Tuesday’s episode of Talk2theAnimalsRadio.

    Yellow…I’ve never been drawn to it. It’s bright; makes my eyes hurt; drowns out other colors around it. I wish I liked it, but really avoid it. Even a pot of yellow flowers on my deck. Someone asked me what color of mums I wanted and my response was “anything but white and yellow.”
    I love the ocean, the warmth of the sun, and sitting under an umbrella. Used to love the bright sun, but now I always need sunglasses and even bought a car without a sunroof.
    Wonder what Freud would say?


    • Janet September 12, 2013 at 8:46 am #

      Terri, thanks for sharing. LOL, not sure what Freud would say about that. Good luck!

      Although it seems like you associate yellow with harshness, you might look to other aspects of it that you have befriended. For instance, imagine closing your eyes and standing in the afternoon sunlight. How do you feel then? Can you connect with the warmth and vitality?


  2. Judy Pierce September 12, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    I love the color yellow. It reminds me of sunshine, cheerful flowers and warmth.


    • Janet September 12, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

      Judy, when you’re chatting with Ozette, does the color yellow, or any color actually, play a part in the conversation? Thx for sharing, good luck!


    • Rob September 13, 2013 at 1:42 pm #

      Judy, this is a good starting point. But, in order to more deeply understand what yellow means for you I might spend some time with a journal and write about it. What does warmth mean? Start writing from this place, with compassion and curiosity, and I feel you’ll be rewarded with even more imagery and details. Thank you.

    To me yellow conveys warmth, light, life giving, happiness, cheery, hope as in new life in springtime. I had yellow Fuji mums in my wedding. Marriage didn’t last, but that did not changed what I feel about the color. When I wear it I feel clean, fresh, happy. However, I wouldn’t like it as a wall color. That would be too overwhelming. Overall I get good vibes from yellow. Thanks!


    • Janet September 13, 2013 at 8:47 am #

      Thanks for sharing Cheryl, good luck! 😉


    • Rob September 13, 2013 at 1:33 pm #

      Thank you, Cheryl. You have some very powerful insights here.


  4. Deborah Barry September 13, 2013 at 5:04 am #

    Yellow is warmth, like sunlight! It feels like a hug, a warm towel wrapped around me. The light from a fireplace.


    • Janet September 13, 2013 at 8:48 am #

      Love the imagery Deborah, it sounds so content! Good luck


    • Rob September 13, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

      Deborah, this is great imagery and feeling that you portray here. It might be a great starting point for a meditation or quick centering moment. Allow yourself to feel the embrace of the sun for a moment, especially when feeling stressed. This might be a good starting place for a creative project too. Create something from this feeling.


  5. Arlette Cheramie September 16, 2013 at 8:51 am #

    Yellow is a lovely color that to many means brightness and happiness. Unfortunately, yellow has associations to unhappy memories from the past which interfers with my joy in the color.


    • Janet September 16, 2013 at 9:43 am #

      Arlette, I’m sorry to hear about the bad memories associated with a color you love so much. Hugs


    • Rob September 16, 2013 at 11:59 am #

      Arlette, thank you for sharing. Yes, some colors, like events and objects, can hold a memory with some sting. But, they can also hold the “medicine” that can help us to look within and begin to address these issues. But, the point isn’t to dismiss the feelings, but to recognize how they have both supported and hindered you. In my description above, I noticed the prominence of the bat. I enjoyed time with my family, although I don’t remember wanting to be involved at the time. So, the for me it’s something that is painful, but also associated with knowing that family, relationships and community are important. That’s my medicine. Recognized the power of connection, and asking myself what I do want. How do I want relationship to look like?


    • Rob September 16, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

      Part of this is also learning to be in the present moment and not letting our doubts, fears or inner chatter keep us distracted. It’s about being fully present in the moment. For instance, when someone is angry and yelling at us, many people tend to get defensive or withdraw in their reactivity. When we can step out of the reactivity, be at peace with ourselves, we can respond in the present moment and deal with the issue at hand, rather than issues from the past.


      • Janet September 16, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

        Thanks Rob, for sharing your wisdom here. Can smells also be associated with a color?


        • Rob September 16, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

          Some people do associate smells with colors. For instance, you might associate it with the sea breezes on a warm summer day. But, there is also a condition called synesthesia, which is a condition in which one sense (perhaps hearing) is also perceived as if by one or more additional senses such as vision or touch. Another form of synesthesia also joins objects such as letters, shapes, or numbers with a outer sensory perception such as smell, or color. Oliver Sacks talks about this in many of his books.

    I have always hated being cold, and i am one of those folks who gets chilled easily which is probably one reason i love yellow – it reminds me of the sun. It’s such a cheery color. Yellow reminds me of summer – all of the flowers that are yellow and so cheerful. Not sure how much color influences my writing, but I know that Ozette loves watching sunrises with all of the beautiful colors.


    • Janet September 16, 2013 at 7:01 pm #

      I feel warmer when I am wearing the warm colors, which I think reflects one way on how the vibration of color works on us


  7. kd September 16, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    wow – yellow is my lest favorite color !

    I know it has good qualities for happiness, positivity, love, etc, and I do associate it with kitchens! (However, I have never had it in any kitchens I have used!)

    When I was younger I think I liked yellow more (& also orange).

    Otherwise I do try to avoid these colors actually in my home and wardrobe!

    I have used yellow in visualizations/meditations to connect with, energize the solar plexus, 3rd chakra……but otherwise, not at all attracted to yellow!

    I wonder if such feelings are significant???

    Thank you for this exercise and any insights you might have!



    • Janet September 16, 2013 at 6:57 pm #

      Interesting KD, thanks for sharing your associations with the color yellow. It makes sense that you wouldn’t use those colors in your home or wardrobe. Do you use a different shade of yellow when you are working with your 3rd chakra?
      When I was very young, certain shades of red have made me physically ill. Good luck!


  8. KD September 16, 2013 at 7:21 pm #

    Hi Janet,

    Thanks for your response –

    I use a bright, golden shade of yellow when working with the 3rd chakra.

    And this is interesting – I have always loved the color red, and I also tend to feel cold often – shades of red will help warm me! Indeed, it is a warm color.


  9. Linda September 16, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    I have always loved yellow. It was the color of my childhood stuffed duck and the outfit my stuffed panda wore. All my art as a child included the color yellow. No picture was complete without some yellow. I still love yellow….daffodils, sunflowers, yellow mums. My living room and dining room are painted a warm yellow and lemon is my favorite flavor because, of course, it’s yellow. Interestingly, the world turns yellow when I meditate, have a vision, (or am about to pass out!). Yellow is happiness, joy, comfort.


    • Janet September 16, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

      Hi Linda, thanks for sharing! Interesting how yellow has been with you since childhood. Good luck!


    • Rob September 17, 2013 at 12:04 am #

      Thank you for sharing, Linda. It’s interesting to see how important or unimportant yellow can be in our lives. It seems it has a strong role in yours. You mentioned seeing yellow when you meditate, do you think that you are seeing energy or auras or this is something related to meditation for you?


      • Linda September 20, 2013 at 8:13 am #

        I think it’s my energy that I see.


        • Janet September 20, 2013 at 10:01 am #

          Linda, so when you meditate you are aware of your energy field and how it’s working?


        • Rob September 20, 2013 at 10:12 am #

          Linda, that is a very powerful self-realization. Can you feel into this energy and notice what it feels connected to? Is it related to an energy center or chakra?
