The gemstones to which you are drawn are revealing, and they provide guidance for uncovering self-knowledge. Colors and gemstones influence the way we feel, act, and react to others. Think about it: why would you want to wear your magenta pink shirt one day and all black clothes another? One day you want your amethyst pendant and another day you want to wear your sapphire ring. Observe your color choices to help you to know yourself better, as the colors to which you are drawn reveal so much.

Whether it is the gemstones you are drawn to wear or the colors of the foods you ingest, your daily color choices become an oracle, an opportunity to know yourself better. You can ask yourself, "Why am am I drawn to wear that turquoise shirt and citrine ring?" The turquoise shirt signals your desire to be heard, while the citrine ring could indicate a need for more self-confidence. The magenta pink shirt reveals a need for unconditional love, and the black clothes might show a desire to feel safe. This makes total sense, as every day opens to a new reality. See if your gemstone and color choices show you if you need to get motivated and take action or if you need more time in contemplation and prayer.
