When I first started running my company, The Film Festival Doctor, during the first two years of trading, I began to work extremely long hours which consisted of 16-hour days, seven days a week and surviving on five hours sleep each night. Inevitably, I was burnt out but I still ploughed through as I presumed that there was no other option.
However, when I met Marie Diamond, Feng Shui master and contributor to an extremely popular self-help book during 2013, she pointed out that the colors I was wearing were contributing towards my constant state of stress, fatigue and exhaustion and was subsequently blocking me from attracting more clients, sales and success. Marie told me that what I needed to change was the energy within myself and that this could be achieved using her ‘Quantum Colors’ technique.
During our first consultancy together, I explained that I was feeling depressed and anxious regarding not being able to close deals with the type of clients I wanted to work with. Marie identified that because I was feeling so burnt out, I was thinking far too small and engaging with too many limiting beliefs revolving around lack of money and clients. Another thing Marie said was contributing to feeling so exhausted was the dull colors I wore.
She had noticed that I wore lots of black, grey and dark purple, and these weren’t the right colors to attract clients towards me and to feel abundant, energetic and happy from within. During my consultation with Marie, she used her ‘Quantum Colors’ technique to help change the energy of my mental health so I could think bigger, feel better in myself and attract the right type of clientele.
Marie explained to me that everything in the universe is alive with energy and can significantly improve one’s mental health. She’s an expert in using specific colors to manifest greater success, health, relationships, and wisdom in your life. When we met, I was wearing a black dress and white cardigan. Marie said I needed to wear more saffron yellow, gold, rose and pink. At first, I wasn’t convinced. I didn’t think those colors would suit me. However, when she told me why, it made sense for me to trust her advice and invest in some new clothing.
Marie explained that wearing saffron yellow would help to activate compassion when I chose to show trust, patience and kindness towards my clients. It would also help me to listen to advice, create a gentle ease of love and support, and feel more compassion for myself. Gold, she told me, would help to activate abundance when I wanted to increase financial growth, achieve greater results from work and investments, and manifest the results I wanted for myself and my clients. The color rose would help to activate love when I wanted to be more open and outgoing, receive support, or establish or improve significant relationships with business associates. Pink would also activate tenderness when I chose to be gentle or when I wanted to receive tender and loving attention; it would stimulate my senses, and express appreciation and sweetness.
This might sound a bit bonkers, and I’ll admit it took me a while to get my head around her way of thinking. However, throughout our meeting, I noticed that Marie looked incredible – she literally shone like a diamond. Her clothes all blended together harmoniously and she had a very striking presence, which was enhanced by the colors of her clothes all energetically binding together. I also noticed that despite travelling around the world several times a week she had an incredible amount of energy and had radiant looking skin. This woman was the opposite of looking burnt out.
It was at that point that I knew wearing brighter colors would really help my prolonged stress, so I took her advice and began to change my wardrobe. As soon as I did, my mental health and business changed instantly! I went from wearing dark colors to bright pastel shades. I also mixed them together to create a very distinctive and unique look.
My mental state shifted from only wanting to wear black and grey to not allowing any of those colors into my wardrobe and only allowing in bright colored clothing. I began to sleep longer and felt more confident in myself and my work.
Marie taught me that a positive mind set plus wearing the right colors equals an endless flow of abundance and energy. When I wore gold necklaces and gold-colored clothing, I felt a sense of authority and financial freedom. I really did feel like I was running the show and I never felt tired. The amount of energy I had was incredible. I felt like I did not need to rely on anyone else, either; I knew how to stand my ground. I always wore gold when I attended business meetings to show I was focused on the world of business.
I also noticed that as soon as I switched to wearing brighter colors, people around me began to look at me differently. I was radiating abundance, excitement, joy. My energy was so positive, both on the inside and the outside and I’ve never felt burnt out since.
