Violets Challenged!

Violet aura color personalities are being challenged right now. Because it’s a Violet age, you Violets are in your power time. This is when you’re supposed to be “stepping up” - accomplishing your bigger purposes & visions. And you Violets are feeling it. You probably first heard your inner voice telling you something felt wrong – that you needed to change or do something different with you life. If you follow what it’s telling you, everything will some how work out. If you don’t listen to that inner voice, you will get a more obvious nudge or wake up call. If you don’t pay attention to that nudge – the wake up calls will get much louder! What is it going to take to get your attention - that something is wrong and your soul wants more?

About 90% of my clients these days are Violets! That’s huge! They’re feeling squeezed – most didn’t listen to that small inner voice. Now they’re coming in with depression, serious health issues, divorces, deaths, and other dramas. If you feel stuck or unsure how you’re going to accomplish your dreams, if you haven’t found a way to move forward, you’re most likely getting the rug pulled out from under you to make you move forward. 

You Violets have always had big dreams. You need to live "outside the box."  It doesn’t matter if others don’t dream or envision that way – you do and there are reasons for that.

1)   You didn’t want to be bored this lifetime – you wanted to have a bigger life, a more extraordinary experience. So what you do this lifetime needs to be extraordinary. The bigger challenges lead to the bigger payoffs. Bigger mountains to climb bring greater & more inspiring vistas at the top. And because you have so much compassion and depth to you (even if you’re currently frustrated with humanity – that’s common for Violets) you need to do something that improves the quality of life for others. You need to help or inspire people in a big way – to improve the quality of life for others. That is a tall order. If you get to the end of your life, or leave the planet without fulfilling your reason for coming here – you’ll most likely have regrets. (As much as you think you'll be relieved to be done with the struggle - you'll also wonder what this lifetime was about and if you could've done something else.)

2)   You Violets typically would prefer not to “have to” come back to this plane, this planet again. You’ve had so many lifetimes - it can get boring, hard, or overwhelming here for you. This plane usually feels dense and tough to you. So you need to tie up all lose ends, resolve any issues you have with people, move through your frustration, not give up in hopelessness – because if you leave the planet that way, you’ll make yourself come back here again. (Belief systems aside - that is THE worse thing for a Violet to hear.)

Advice on how to move forward and live your potential:

1.     First, listen to your inner voice

2.     If you think you don’t know how to accomplish what that voice is telling you to do – imagine someone coming to you with the same dream and confusion, and see what you would advise them to do. You Violets are some of the world’s best advice-givers. You just need to listen to your own advice.

3.     Be around people who are doing what you want to do, be around the energy of what you want to do with your life. It will make it more real for you. You pick up the energy of the environment around you. Chose the people & environment that will inspire you to believe in your vision - to see that it's possible to achieve!

4.     Violets benefit from mentors. Find people or at least read biographies about people (other Violets) who inspire you and then do what they did – or something similar. Did they have courage? Did they not give up on their dreams? Did they go the extra mile? Did they take it step by step – and eventually find themselves living their dreams? What inspires you about them? Be and act that same way.

5.     Meditate – Violets need to have quiet time to connect with their vision and higher guidance. If you can’t sit still – take a walk, listen to inspirational or calming music, do something to quiet that critical voice so you can get out of your own way.

These are few steps to help you Violets live your purpose and your dreams. I have written so much more in my books Life Colors, Love Colors, and Make Your Dreams Come True. I have created guided imagery meditation CDs and MP3s. I’m doing what I can to support you Violets to live your passion and potential. Go for it! If you fall – just get up again. Giving up will lead to depression and self-disappointment. That’s worse than failing. 


  1. Pam thanks for this nudge/wake up call. I am challenged now and it is time for a new game. I get so stuck in what is not working with life it hard to see the bigger purpose and get into the good flow. Where can I find your guided imagery meditation MP3s?

  2. HI David, Sorry to hear you're being challenged. My meditations are on my website here www.auracolors.com - in "Shopping." They're not expensive. http://www.auracolors.com/en/meditations.html or check out the "Live an Amazing Life" CD. That might be helpful. Whatever you feel drawn to: http://www.auracolors.com/en/cds-and-dvds.html. Trust your own intuition. Best wishes to you - and you find your passion and direction!

  3. Thanks Pam! This is great! I really relate to what you've written about violets. I find that I'm on a path that seems good and then other people throw in roadblocks -- it feels very dense- as you wrote, like I'm trying to walk through waist-high water. I appreciate the guidance here. Many thanks!

  4. Thanks for your post, Pam! I know I have a Violet aura and what you wrote sure spoke to me. We still need to do the work ourselves, and I'm pushing myself to do it. But your message felt uplifting and motivating, so thank you again for the great work you do with your books and your sites!

  5. Thank you Mary and Nikki! I really appreciate you both taking the time to post messages to me. I'm glad you could relate to the Violet aura color challenges right now. I hope you both find a way to live your life purpose and have wonderful adventures! Have a great time! Big hugs to you - Pam

  6. Thanks for the tips, Pam. You understand us Violets so well, maybe better than we understand ourselves in our mad rush to do too much every day. Being a Yellow/Violet, my job usually fulfills my Violet side, and I have to play like crazy on my time off. But lately, my Violet side has gotten crankier and more demanding. Nothing seems to be enough. I was part of an interview panel at work and was telling my manager and supervisor about the life color of all the interviewees. I even got my Blue/Yellow supervisor to look at the auras. She was pretty accurate and was able to see them. I usually don’t talk about such things at work, but it was fun and helped us make the hiring decision. I’ve also been pushed to sign up for more energy medicine classes and volunteered to give a presentation to a subtle energy group I’m part of. The Violet is definitely becoming more pushy. But I really need to take your suggestion about slowing down, tuning in, meditating. I tend to try to cram too much play or work into a day, and I know this would help me focus. Thanks again for the info you’re putting out there. You’ve definitely changed my life for the better and through your books and website; I’ve passed it on as much as possible. :-)

  7. Thank you SO much for this info. How cool that you're using the aura info at work! I love hearing that. How great that your boss got into it too. I'm glad you're looking into the healing arts - perfect for your Yellow! I hope you are successful at finding time to meditate and slow down. I know we all need it - but especially you Violets! Thanks again for connecting with me. Happy adventures to you! (And I hope your Violet becomes less pushy and cranky.) That's funny. ; )

    I remember reading this blog a couple of weeks ago and being blown away at the timing of my finding it! Thanks so much for posting this... it is freakishly true. I'm in my first year of college and have been feeling hopelessly aimless. All I ever think about is what it is that I will accomplish and who I will be. It is hard to get my mind in the present. For now, however, I'd like to ask if you know what college majors are most frequent/match up the most with Violets. Thank you!

  9. Hi Pam,
    Just curious -- where do Violets go after here?
