You would be amazed how much impact colour has on your life, well being, mood and health!




Here is short run down of what each colour does for you.


BLUE is great for breathing difficulties, it calms and relaxes you, it can help you sleep and can help to lower your blood pressure.


TURQUOISE - is good for your immune system, for counteracting immflamation and fever, it is also calming and soothing.


VIOLET is great for calming the body and balancing the mind and improving your feelings of dignity and self respect.


MAGENTA induces feelings of contentment and feelings of completeness and helps you to let go of concerns and worries.


RED 'excites up' increases your energy and blood pressure, enhances energy, keeps us alert and stimulates your feelings of power.


ORANGE is about joy, happiness and fun, it releases pleasure, it stimulates and enhances dance and movement, it helps to combat depression.


YELLOW encourages detachment from situations, it can improve thin and brittle bone strength, it suits the mature mind.


GREEN creates balance and careful judgement but it can make a room look dead and empty. 









Answer each question in order without peeking ahead!!
Read the following questions, imagine the scenes in your mind, and write down the FIRST thing that you visualize. Do not think about the questions excessively.

1. You are walking in the woods. Who are you walking with?
2. You are walking in the woods. You see an animal. What kind of animal is it?
3. What interaction takes place between you and the animal?
4. You walk deeper into the woods. You enter a clearing and before you is your dream house. Describe its size.
5. Is your dream house surrounded by a fence?
6. You enter the house. You walk to the dining area and see the dining room table. Describe what you see on and around the table.
7. You exit the house through the back door. Lying in the grass is a cup. What material is the cup made of (ceramic, glass, paper, etc.)?
8. What do you do with the cup?
9. You walk to the edge of the property, where you find yourself standing at the edge of a body of water. What type of body of water is it (creek, river, ocean, etc...)
10. How will you cross the water?
This has been a relational psychology test. The answers given to the questions have been shown to have a relevance to values and ideals that we hold in our personal lives. The analysis follows:

1. The person who you are walking with is the most important person in your life.
2. The size of the animal is representative of your perception of the size of your problems.
3. The severity of the interaction you have with the animal is representative of how you deal with your problems (passive, aggressive).
4. The size of your dream home is representative of the size of your ambition to resolve your problems.
5. No fence is indicative of an open personality. People are welcome at all times. The presence of a fence is more indicative of a closed personality. You'd prefer people to not drop by unannounced.
6. If your answer did not include food, people, or flowers then your are generally unhappy.
7. The durability of the material with which the cup is made is representative of the perceived durability of your relationship with the person from number 1. For example, styrofoam, plastic, and paper are disposable; Styrofoam, paper, and glass (ceramics) are not durable; and metal and plastic are durable.
8. Your disposition of the cup is representative of your attitude toward the person in number 1.
9. The size of the body of water is representative of the size of your sexual desire.
10. How wet you get in crossing the water is indicative of the relative importance of your sex life.


Remember this is just for fun and in no way is meant to be taken too seriously!





First get a piece of paper and pen and write down all your answers.....


Think of your favourite domesticated animal and write down your answer, now write down three words to describe it.


Think of your favourite wild animal and three words to describe it.


Think of water.  What type of water are you thinking of?  Now three or four thoughts, feelings, emotions that describe your answer.


Think of your favourite drinking vessel and draw a little sketch of it.


You are walking through a desert and you come to a wall right across your path, what do you do?






Domesticated animal - symbolizes your partner


Wild animal - symbolizes yourself


Water - symbolizes life


Drinking vessel - symbolizes sex (notice any holes , dimples, things sticking out?)


The desert wall - your thoughts about death.






All this angst and suspicion is ruining your life,

You can’t trust your partner, your husband or wife,

Every look or glance makes you feel so suspicious,

If you’re completely honest, you act totally vicious,

Nasty words are exchanged before you get into bed,

But if you’re totally truthful, it’s all been in your head!

So you need help to trust your husband or your wife,

‘Coz when well all‘s said and done, it’s still ruining your life!


By Karen Lally





You’re light headed and dizzy, you’re breaking a sweat,

You’re shaky and nervous, you’re hands are all wet,

Your stomach is churning; you can’t get to sleep,

And the smallest thing is making you weep,

Relaxation, no sugar, spring greens and fresh air,

But you still don’t feel with it, it’s really unfair,

Nothing is working, so you’re trying sobriety,

No one knows how you feel, with this painful anxiety,

It’s hard to cope ‘coz your mind keeps on racing,

You need to get help with this life you’re now facing.


By Karen Lally







READ this sentence:



Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Count them
ONLY ONCE; do not go back and count them again.

scroll down...

finished files are the result of years of scientific study combined with years the experience of years


There are six F's in the sentence. One of average
intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four,
you're above average. If you got five, you can turn
your nose at most anybody. If you caught six, you are
a genius. There is no catch.







You’re feeling totally trapped in this head of yours,

Anger builds up inside until out it just pours,

Things pee you off to the point of destruction,

As you keep reacting like a volcanic eruption,

But you just can’t help it, you’re so full of this rage,

When you get so wound up, you just can’t engage.

You can’t hold back ‘coz you feel you’re exploding,

And you’re well aware that your life is imploding.


Those all around you, walk on eggshell,

To them you behave like a demon from hell,

You act totally lousy when you’re full of drink,

And your road rage is far worse than you think,

Family try to calm you, as to them it is glaring,

That with that red face, you’re temper is flaring,

Friends will just leave you, as they will take flight,

‘Coz you’re so determined to get into that fight!


By Karen Lally






Read the top before you scroll down...................

You are in a desert. You have with you the following five animals:
A lion, a cow, a horse, a sheep, and a monkey.

To escape the desert you are going to have to get rid of one of your animals.
Which one do you drop? (You can use whatever logic you like BUT > keep track of which animal is discarded when!) You have 4 animals left.
The desert is burning up! It goes on for miles.
Sand is everywhere. You realize, to get out, you are going to have drop another animal.
Which do you drop?

You have 3 animals left.
Walk, walk, walk. Hot, hot, hot.
Disaster! The Oasis that you were looking for is dried up!
You have no choice but to drop another animal.

You have 2 animals left.
Ok, it's a long hot walk. You can see the edge of the desert way on the horizon. Unfortunately, you can only leave the desert with ONE animal.
Which one do you drop and which one do you keep?

Before looking at the answers below, make sure you know which animal you dropped in what order.

These answers are based on Japanese Archetypes.

The desert represents a hardship.
The animals represent . . .

  • Lion = Pride
  • Monkey = Your Children
  • Sheep = friendship
  • Cow = Basic Needs
  • Horse = Your Passion.

So, in the face of hardship, you will sacrifice each of these things in turn. Your last animal represents that thing which you cling to at the expense of all others.






To you it’s been crushing,

You just can’t stop blushing,

People get in your space,

They stare at your face,

Well at least, you feel that they are.


Worries rush round your head,

‘Coz you’re going bright red,

So you try and you try,

As you ask yourself why,

FACE!  Just stop it and leave me alone!


You keep your head down,

‘Coz you feel such a clown,

You feel so much shame,

Like you’ve been put in the frame,

With those eyes all glaring at you.


Each night that you pray,

It would just go away,

But it’s become such a curse,

As the redness gets worse,

And the world is still staring at you!

Look at the text below say the colour the word is written in, but don’t say the text itself.

Do it as quickly as you can.  It’s harder than you think!



Say the colour...   not the word

Red    blue    yellow    green 

Black    orange    purple    red 

purple    green    blue    yellow 

orange   blue    black    red




It does prove a point.


This may be just a bit of fun but it does demonstrate an interesting phenomenon about how the mind works!

You see the brain can be divided into two hemispheres, the left and the right.

  • Left hemisphere – responsible for conscious thought and logical reasoning; the things you’re consciously aware of.
  • Right hemisphere – used for more creative and abstract tasks; the things you just ‘know’ without really thinking about them.


People tend to use one or the other at any given time, and it gets terribly confusing when you try to use both simultaneously; as you just found out!

Here you’re using your left brain to read the words, while at the same time attempting to use your right brain for the more abstract task of colour recognition.

How much easier would it be if they were just blocks of colour?





You’re frightened of cats, bats and big rats,

And the sight of a bee makes you run.

You shy away from big waves and black spooky caves,

And for you clowns are just horrors, not fun.

You’re hating the park, the lark and the dark,

You can’t sit by yourself in the sun.


You hate black hairy spiders, all germs and fat worms,

And the thought of the doc’s makes you cower,

Your fear of being sick really gets on your wick,

And you can’t get your face wet in the shower.

The knob of the door, must be covered in gore,

So you’re washing your hands for an hour.


You’ve never liked heights, flights or dark nights,

And just thinking of snakes makes you weepy,

You daren’t go for a swim or visit the gym,

And you can’t stand anything crawly or creepy,

You’re nervous of dating, it sends you palpating,

You don’t get much rest, though you get sleepy.


You feel things are not nice, like woodlice and mice,

And big bridges you just can’t defeat,

You can’t go out to dinner, so you’re getting thinner,

And you even go blotchy in heat,

You hate being late and making them wait,

So get some help and do not be beat !
