The Colour Yellow – Warmth, Authentic Connection & Support

The Wheel of Colours has 13 fields and 13 colours – each field represents a different challenge, gift or lesson we have to master in our lifetimes and the colours in our unique wheel show us how each of us, can master them best, with our unique abilities.

We are all made up of the same colours, but the colours are arranged differently for each of us on our wheels.

For example, yellow is the colour for warmth, authentic connection and support – qualities we all need to develop in our lifetimes to thrive – but some of us are already born with (more of) these qualities, while others have to nourish and build them by going through the lessons they have to learn in this lifetime.

Which is true for you?
You might be able to guess, looking at your life and how you feel. But if you want to be sure, you can order your unique Wheel of Colours now, to find out.

If you have your wheel already and are one of the people who still needs to work on building their warmth, ability to authentically connect and support your own needs and those of others in this lifetime – then let me show you some practical ways how to do that in this article. 

The classical field for the colour yellow in the Wheel of Colours is the second field.

The second field shows us what we need to be in touch with ourselves and other people so that we can work and live together well.

It makes sense to have yellow as the classical second colour because whatever we’d like to do with other people, will be easier if we feel warmth for ourselves and them, have a good connection to our authentic selves and thus can safely connect to those who we are going to work, or play or just hang out with.

And our emotions are our guides here, as they connect us to our authentic selves.

Now, not all of us were born or raised to be our authentic selves or to trust and follow our emotions – and that is OK, as we can learn how to do that now.

1. Our emotions are our guides

Can you imagine only doing things that you love? The things that feel good to you? What would your life be like?

And do you know why some things feel better than others?

When we think and act in alignment with our highest self, we feel good about what we are about to do, or think about and the further we move away from what our highest self would do, the worse we feel about ourselves, what we think about and what we have to do.

Really let this sink in.

What does that mean?

Our emotions are our guides. They are the incredible navigational system each of us has, to guide us through life and to live a life in alignment with our highest potential and, thus, help us to do what we are meant to do in our lifetime.

If we begin to live a conscious life – there’s nothing in our lives that we need to feel bad about because we know why we are doing it and how it aligns us with our highest goals.

Whereas, when we force ourselves to do things because we think they are expected of us, or because we feel like we don’t have a choice, or because we’ve been overriding our emotions and our inner guides all our lives – they are hard, and it feels like we are going against our nature – because we are.

So how can we change that?

We start by valuing each and every one of our emotions, and let them tell us the story they came to tell us.

We practice this in the CREATRIX School all the time because it is so incredibly important.

You can check out the practice in the Relationships Chapter, about releasing stuck emotions, if you’d like to get a taste of what we do and start implementing this in your life as well.

There’s also a wonderful book by Karla McLaren, called The Language of Emotions – What Your Feelings are Trying to Tell You, which I can highly recommend, if you’d like to dive into this even deeper.

But wherever you are on your journey to full self-love and authenticity and wherever the colour yellow shows up on your wheel, it will be incredibly valuable to begin to listen to your emotions.

One quite common emotion we often misunderstand is fear.

When fear arises, it is never meant to stop us from something, but to sharpen our senses to do whatever we want to do cautiously – so that nothing bad happens.

Emotions are also nothing to hold on to. If you ever think: I feel so sad these days and have learned to accept this as a state, know that it’s not meant to be.

Of course, if you’ve just lost a loved one, or someone you love is sick or in danger, this is a normal reaction that should be honoured, but a lot of times we feel gloomy or sad and don’t even really know why – and this is often because we’re suppressing a part of ourselves and did not actually feel an emotion.

In these situations, you can really just ask yourself: Why do I feel sad?

And then don’t come up with excuses, why it’s OK to be sad, but listen to what your body, your inner child, a part that you’ve split off, has to tell you, and then work through and release the connected emotions, stories or misunderstandings and meet whatever comes up with love.

2. How can we learn to trust our emotions?

Few of us grew up experiencing unconditional love from the humans around us, so we now have to learn how we can give and receive unconditional love.

And of course, this has to start with developing unconditional love for ourselves.

Just the other day, I talked to someone I really value, and they said that they are very hard on themselves, they judge themselves much harder than they judge other people, and that that’s how they were raised, to hold themselves accountable for their actions and behaviours.

It breaks my heart to hear people say such things because I can literally see and feel all the pain that is connected to that – and how afraid they were to let go of it because it felt like it would be a dishonour to their family to do so.

But it’s not. When we break these kinds of family traditions, it also frees past generations.

A while ago, I was with a friend and their small child and the child climbed down some stairs and fell. Of course, it was hurt and scared, and my friend, scared as well, got upset and told the kid to be more careful next time.

I immediately jumped in and told the child it did really well, and that we had to be very careful with these stairs as they are slippery.

I added that it took most of them really well and carefully and only slipped once, and asked if it wanted to try again with me to see that it can really take all of them carefully next time.

The tears disappeared, and we tried and the child felt happy, confident and safe again.

How do you think learning works best?

When you point out that someone did something wrong, or when you show them how to do things right – themselves?

And the same is true for ourselves. If we get mad or upset with ourselves for making a mistake – it’s difficult to believe we can ever get it right, and it will at least take us a lot of energy.

But if we encourage ourselves to learn and grow from each situation and don’t attach our self-worth to it – it becomes easier.

Even the first step, to switch from: I can’t do these things, to I couldn’t do this thing yet, I will have to learn how to do this right – makes a huge difference.

So when I say we have to listen to our emotions, it doesn’t mean to just do the things we love and not do the things we don’t, but to learn to understand our emotions first.

And that means, for example, checking in when we feel fear, or dread or aversion – and finding out why that is.

This way, we can learn to distinguish if we’re actually reacting to the situation or to our past and our conditioning.

My friend’s child, and the parents, could go through the world, thinking our child is clumsy and not good with stairs, or they and the child can think that the child can do anything it practices long enough.

And the same is true for you.

As I said above, our emotions connect us to our highest self, which is our truest and most authentic self.

When we don’t listen to our emotions, or don’t understand them right, we are not well connect to our most authentic, our inner self.

So when you feel bad about something, it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that the thing in itself is bad – as it is essentially just a thing that you attached meaning to – but that at that moment you are not aligned with your highest potential.

Imagine you were the child with the stairs, and because no one helped you to master the stairs, you are now afraid of them.

Your highest self knows that you have no trouble with these stairs, you only think you do because someone told you so and you believed them.

So you feel bad because you are out of alignment, not because the stairs are bad or because you are.

What you have to do, when you feel bad about something, is to find a way to feel good about the stairs and not bad any more.

This could be by carefully giving them another try, or by looking to your past to see where that fear might have originated.

It’s not meant to guide you to avoid stairs for the rest of your life because you feel bad about them.

When you understand and practice this, you will be able to trust your emotions more and more.

3. What this might look like in practice

So, the first step is to understand that our emotions are here to guide us to live as our authentic selves – and our authentic self is pretty awesome, and can do a lot more than we can do, or allow ourselves to do, right now.

When we begin to listen to our emotions this way, we can learn more about who we really are in any situation and begin to live our highest potential, by using our emotions as a guide to come into alignment.

And as our highest self knows everything, our emotions can also tell us something about other people or situations, not just about ourselves.

Simply slip into the role of a detective, or a curious child, and whenever a negative emotion comes up, ask yourself why and what it is here to tell you.

You don’t feel like meeting with that person? Ask yourself why.

You don’t feel like paying your bills or going to work? Ask yourself why.

If, like most people do, you just do it anyway because it’s the reasonable, responsible, right thing to do, ask yourself if that is really true or just something someone has told you and made you believe to be true and why they might have told you that.

And then check in again if your higher self might not actually know a better way that is in alignment with itself – with your true self.

Because it usually does.

And it will most likely tell you to not meet people who aren’t good for you, to not work for people who don’t appreciate you, and to not do things for money that are not putting your real superpowers to good use.

And it will ask you to start doing something that you get paid for more (by using your unique superpowers – because they are your unique gifts) and that will make you happy at the same time because you are in alignment – so that paying your bills will become a joy and doesn’t feel like the money you just earned so hard goes out again without you having had fun anywhere in between.

You already know everything to live your best life – you just have to listen.

And this is what the colour yellow is here to teach us: to use our emotions to come into alignment with our highest self – because when we are, we feel warmth and unconditional love and shine bright like the sun and can easily support other people as well.

4. What do our emotions have to do with warms, authentic connection and support

We just saw how our emotions lead us to being in alignment with our highest self.

And as I’ve stated before, there are very few people, I honestly don’t know if there are any people, who actually live in full alignment yet.

If we are not fully aligned, though, we struggle with self-love and accepting ourselves because we think that there are things wrong with us (all the things that make us feel bad).

And as long as we don’t have unconditional love for ourselves, we will be looking for it from other people, and it might even feel like our life depends on getting love and confirmation from outside and other people.

As no one is fully healed and aligned yet though, that is a slippery slope and the more independent we become here, the more we can soothe and appreciate and encourage and love ourselves, and the more confident, joyful and at peace we will feel with ourselves.

As a result, the better we feel, the more we will be able to give to and support others on their way as well.

The more people will start to practice this, the better the chances become of meeting other people who will then be able to give us unconditional love as well.

But there’s no way around starting with ourselves.

The second field in the Wheel of Colours is about what we need to collaborate, cooperate and interact with other people. And that, in short, is best done with unconditional love.

As none of us has that yet, I call it warmth, authentic connection and support – because these are things we can practice more easily – and practising them regularly can possibly also lead us to at some point be able to live with, give and receive unconditional love.

I don’t think there is anything better to practice this, though, than to stop being hard on ourselves.

Everything begins with treating ourselves like the most precious thing that exists – because we are.

When we make a mistake, we forgive/apologize, be accountable, learn from it and move on, again, if you’d like to practice this, join us in the CREATRIX School.

We don’t hold on to shame, guilt or fear because it doesn’t help, ever, and we all do our best every day.

Because we are all perfect already as we are.

5. Using the colour yellow in your environment

Another thing that can help us with this is to bring more yellow into our lives.

Do you have some yellow clothes? A jumper, pants, a scarf, something you like wearing? A yellow bracelet, necklace or earrings can work as well.

Bring some yellow flowers or plants with yellow blossoms into your home.

Or hang up artworks, photos, posters that have plenty of yellow in them.  You might even want to paint a wall in your home yellow or get yellow curtains.

I love my yellow cushions that are on my couch and on some of my chairs. I can really feel the warmth and care emanating from them.

Have you ever noticed the first flowers that come out after the winter? They are usually yellow, and they come to open our hearts and tell us to defrost, just like the earth does.

Kurkuma is another plant, that can help us with this. How about making yourself a golden milk?

It’s heart-warming on so many levels.

Just see how you can best integrate the colour yellow into your life – try out a few things that may work for you and see what feels best.

6. The Colour Yellow in Your Life

Have you ever wondered why some people struggle with self-love so much more than others?

It might seem that that is related to how much love and support people had growing up, but, there is something very critical to notice here – often we were really loved and supported – but only when we behaved in certain ways, or did certain things.

So this can be quite confusing and why I called this field authentic connection – because it’s not about loving someone or oneself for behaving well, for being helpful and attentive, for bringing home good grades, for having a great job, but to love someone and to encourage them to be all they are, even if it’s messy and complicated and not at all what the parents hoped for.

So how much you can love yourself now, often depends on how much your parents were capable of loving you for who you are and not how much they loved you when you behaved the way they wanted you to.

To please our parents and caregivers, is usually how we learn to override our emotions.

So it is time to start coming back to them, now, so we can uncover our authentic selves and find real happiness and contentedness and not the short rush of happiness after getting approval and then the feeling of emptiness because we’ve not listened to our internal guidance and silenced our truth again.

It’s time to develop the really sweet love, the one we have for a kitten, or puppy, or baby, the one that says there’s nothing you can do wrong, I will always love and support you and think you are the cutest, sweetest thing ever – for ourselves.

Because only when we love ourselves unconditionally, can we love and support others unconditionally as well.

And any step in that direction counts and makes a difference.

If yellow appears at the beginning of your wheel, you probably have an easier time with this than when it’s towards the end – yet either way – we all have to learn this.

Or we don’t have to, but it helps us to live a happy and fulfilled life.

If you think you are way too far away from self-love to ever get there, believe me that I feel you.

There’s no shame in that at all. This world, what we’ve experienced, all the pain and suffering, have let us here, so we change things.

You can simply take one step at a time.

Start with this article:
What to say instead of: I hate myself!

And then we can take it from there. Come join us in the CREATRIX School, if you’d like to practise this more and also meet with me and others on the same path.

So that your colour yellow and you yourself can shine as brightly as you are meant to shine.

The Wheel of Colours shows us, very nicely, that we all have things to learn and things to share.

And it’s up to each one of us to learn what it takes to live the lives we are truly meant to live.

As humans, we are made to collaborate with each other – and the more we get to know ourselves, and allow ourselves to be our authentic selves – the easier being and working together becomes as well.

We all come from the same source, and we need each other to progress – but the better we know ourselves and understand this, the happier we become, the more we can act on purpose and the more successful we will be.

You are an amazing human being and I love you very much.

And I can’t wait for you to begin to unconditionally love yourself.

How much love can show yourself, today?

What others say about the Wheel of Colours

“The Wheel of Colours not only reminded me what my strengths and weaknesses are, but also enlightened me about how I can solve my weaknesses and use them as a means of creating a better life.

It also showed me how precise our unconscious choices are and that we should trust our basic instinctive voices more.

Thank you, Verena, for reminding me of my flaws and apprising how to solve them!”


“Having Verena explain my Wheel of Colours to me was a very encouraging experience where I got to look at and appreciate a lot of aspects of my personality.

We talked about my gifts, but also the challenges I face according to my personal distribution of colours.

I particularly enjoyed the practical tips for the different areas of life that pointed me to things I want to work on and pay attention to.”


“I wasn’t aware of the concept of the Wheel of Colours and stumbled upon it accidentally.

At first, I was rather sceptical because I didn’t know how the whole process was supposed to work. But the result was amazingly accurate and gave me a lot more insight.

I knew myself quite well before that, but through this experience I was able to deepen my self-reflection even further and today I am putting some things into practice in a practical way.

This new perspective has brought me more clarity.”


“It was really good to find out that things I already had a vague idea about are actually true for me, and that I now know what I have to do to take advantage of these opportunities.”


“I find it amazing how coherent the wheel of colours is and how much truth you can find in it, even if what you learn might be difficult.

It’s very useful and makes a lot of sense to learn more about yourself this way, if you want to understand yourself better. Very insightful!”


“Right after I received the wheel, there was a situation where someone asked me what I was thinking and I could just point to the relevant part of the wheel and be understood.

I could never have said that so well and precisely in my own words.”


“The Wheel of Colours has helped me see my purpose in life, something I already had an idea about, but had a hard time acknowledging before seeing it so clearly.”
