When I close my eyes, to sleep or just daydream, I often see colors. These colors are not like what I find in my tubes of paint or my colored pens. The pigmentation's I see are much more intense. Sometimes the color I see is totally one single color, as I watch, it changes. The other night when I closed my eyes in the darkness I could see a mosaic of turquoise that were irregular shapes like stones and surrounding each shape was a darker shade of turquoise that was not quite blue. I wonder how I can see these colors with darkness surrounding me and my eyes closed.
Other times the colors will change as I watch them with my eyes closed. A dark purple will come with a corner of it becoming lilac. Eventually these colors merge and change into a rosy pink tone. How does this happen? I don't want to move or distract myself during these moments with the colors for fear of loosing them. I often notice these brilliant colors move like a lava lamp, the background will be a beautiful green and the globs of moving color will be dark blue.
I have no answer for this magical moment of wonderful brilliant hues, is it my aura playing little games with me as I close my eyes? Who do I ask about this world of brilliance behind my eyes? I suppose it doesn't really matter that can see these colors, I have been able to do it for a long time and I don't think it is harmful. I look at it as more of a gift, a beautiful gift of intensity, movement and change. I suppose I would describe my life as these things, are my eyes open or closed?
