Numerology, Art and Creativity

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor heard...but are felt in the heart" ~Helen Keller

A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. ~Frank Capra (1897-1991) American Film Director

This month we will look at the use of Numerology in art and creativity.  The quest for art, and artistry, can be about seeking out ways to ignite passion, inspiration, and beauty in our lives. We can foster greater understanding of our lives by looking at and creating art. Art is one way in which we can tap into the rich poetry of our hearts and souls. Numerology can provide methods to help you to further understand that inner language and poetry.

As we roll up our sleeves and begin this month’s journey, you may shake your head and say, "I’m not an artist." Or "I don’t have time for art."

Creativity is about expressing, building, craving, living, inventing, sensuality and even lust. It does not have to be about making art yourself, and it does not have to be dull or boring. It can include exploring the art and creativity of others. By glimpsing into the artistry and thoughts of another person, we can get a taste of the artists soul. We can even get a glimpse of the symbolism of the artist’s life.

If you do not have time for "art," then you probably do not have time to enjoy life. Your job is probably just a "job," and you may feel cut off from the rest of the world. Art can help you to begin to open up to life. Creativity is about escaping from cultural programming and the routine and the mundane.

Once you allow yourself to explore your creative passions, then you will give yourself the opportunity to bring to life new ideas and situations, from deep within your imagination.

It is my desire to find ways to live life, with the benefit of Numerology and spirituality. According to Thomas Moore (author: Care of the Soul) "Caring for the soul isn't a level of higher consciousness. It's about being less intellectual and losing control and rediscovering imagination and love and compassion."

How better to rediscover imagination, than through art and creativity? One way to begin this rediscovery can be through the introduction of new decorations in your home. Decorating your home appropriately is important. Your home speaks volumes about your personality. Many cultures are aware of this. We can look to Feng Shui for a hint at how powerful a well kept home can be in our lives.

Do interesting paintings line your walls –or are your walls and living space void of life-transforming art? Growth can be inspired through art, and creativity. Paintings, pottery, wall hangings, statues, fountains and more can add to the beauty of any home.

One simple way to begin your creative rediscovery is through the exploration of color in your life. Numerologically, you can match up your personal numbers with particular colors. Your personal numbers can be used to indicate the appropriate color for clothes, decorating, painting and more. Also, you can match your desire for developing a particular quality (courage, honesty, loyalty, and persistence…) with a particular color. You can then apply that color in your life to help develop your desired qualities.

Once again we will look at two of the most important numbers in Numerology, which are your Soul Number and your Personality Number. These numbers can be used to indicate colors, which can bring out and develop your personality on an inner (Soul Number) and outer (Personality Number) level. Your Life Journey Number can be used to indicate colors for clothes, and decorations, that can help to stimulate your career or avocation.

Each number has multiple colors associated with it. Each number has a primary color, which directly corresponds to your chakras and your sense of health and balance. Your secondary colors are associated with overall growth. All of the colors can be extremely powerful in your life and are important as they can be used to your benefit for personal development, self-discovery, and tapping into your creativity.

Understanding the power of color can be as simple as learning which colors go with what particular numbers. For instance, apricot corresponds to the number 1. By wearing an apricot colored blouse, or shirt, you can aid the development of individuality, creativity and inventiveness (which are all aspects of the number 1) in your life. Do not be afraid to experiment. Play with color in your life and see what happens. This can be a powerful way to open up to creativity and joy.

Personally, I have been working with the color blue. In my office, I’ve placed several geodes, which are blue. People do seem to notice that something is different, and seem to stop by when they need some quiet time. It seems to be working. Also, a few very nice looking rocks now occupy an empty spot on my desk. It is very unique and creative. I think it is much better than if I hung a poster. Creativity can be fun as well as inspiring.

Overall the colors that are related to inner work (Blue, indigo and violet) can be beneficial for inner work, reflection, and meditation. Also, greens and blues having calming qualities and time seems to go faster in rooms with greens/blues, which can be good for waiting areas.

The colors that are related to creativity (Red, Yellow, and Indigo) can be beneficial for decorating rooms, and clothes, when you want to encourage individuality and creativity. Red colors seem to slow down time, and as such a red waiting room can make your wait seem like forever.

Matching your colors to your personal numbers can help to enhance or bring out the qualities represented them. If you have a #4 Soul Number, then by utilizing the colors green, and brown, you can help to foster responsibility, structure, and solidity in your life. If you want, or need, to break out of your "role" as supporter then you may wish to incorporate the dynamic powers of red, orange, and yellow into your life.

Color could very well be the most extraordinary experience we take for granted. Scientifically, it has been proven that the human eye can discern as many as 15,000,000 colors. We view and experience our lives through color as much as we do shape, texture and sound.

We often overlook the blind, and colorblind people in our society. Understanding this can help to foster compassion, caring, and comprehension in our lives. These aspects which are all important in our creative journey, as they can help us tap into parts of others and ourselves that need to be heard.

Now you can begin to apply color, for your benefit, in everyday life. You may wish to use the interactive Numerology Color Viewer to help you begin your personal creative journey. Applying the benefits of color in your life is one way to begin creating the life that you dream about. What it is that you want to "create" in your life? What is it that you want? What do you hunger for? Applying Numerology and color, can be a stimulating adventure in helping to create your life.

There are many ways to tap into creativity in your life. Find out what "works" for you. Any system that works for me, may not work for you, or work for you in the way that it does for me.

Good luck on your journey into Soulful Living and Numerology.
