Inner- versus Outer- Self

August 28, 2008

If anyone asks me about my favourite colors, I would immediately answer: Bold Red, Black and White! Why? I don’t know exactly. However, Green and Orange are often the colors of choice for my clothings. Why? Hmm.. now I’m starting to figure out why.

When I studied Numerology, I understood that our heart’s desire might conflict with our outer personality …OR .. it might not! Depending on each person, of course (don’t forget ~ each of us are unique individuals). The heart’s desire is the inner motivation that underlies our choices and actions ~ knowingly or unknowingly. While the outer personality is how we project ourselves to the world ~ or how we want to be seen by others. In my case … Bold Red, Black and White represent my hidden desires .. whilst Orange and Green reflect my outer personality. Now, I’m going to relate these colors to certain characteristics.

Bold Red, Black and White ~ My Heart’s Desire (Number 22 modified by Number 11)

As far as I know, Bold Red is associated with energy, strength, determination, passion, desire and love. Black is often related to power, elegance, formality and mystery. White is all about light, goodness, innocence, purity and virginity.

Orange and Green ~ My Outer Personality (Number 3 modified by Number 4)

Orange combines the energy of Red and the happiness of Yellow. It represents enthusiasm, fascination, joy, creativity, attraction and encouragement. While Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness and fertility.

For some of you .. the colors associated with me might seem like a dazed mismatch. To others who know me well .. I’m sure the previous examination could give a clearer picture of my personality and comprehensively explain the kind of person I am ( please don’t smile πŸ˜€ ).

Some people are easy to read because the colors of their heart’s desire are exactly the same with what are captured by their surrounding. They are often described as ‘being true’. However, it doesn’t mean that those whose nature are contradictory are ‘untrue’. Sometimes they don’t even understand why they are like that. It takes a lot of effort for them to harmonize their inner- and outer- self.

What I’m trying to say, My Dear Friends … it takes time to see the combination of colors that beautify the people who are close to us .. our love ones. Yet, we might not be fortunate enough to see all the rays of their colors.

It might take your whole life to understand someone completely. So be patient .. accept .. and forgive. Enjoy the process of getting to know the person πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been searching the web for a long time to find something about one’s inner and outer self. And your few paragraphs has gone right into the deepest part of my mind. I totally agree with you that, it really “takes time to see the combination of colors that beautify the people who are close to us.” ^^

    Hi Eric! Sharing is one way of expressing oneself. It opens the opportunity to receive feedbacks which might bring about confirmation or call for necessary revision of ideas. Either of those incites us to learn more and enrich each other. You’re truly appreciated. Thanks, My Friend πŸ™‚

    How does one determine, using numerology, exactly what my inner self, outer, heart selfs are? Does someone know, Ie; name, birthday, other?

      Hi Bill!
      I apologize for my late response. Almost 1 year, πŸ™‚ .. I used to do my own calculation, but it would be simpler to go to You will find a numerology software there. I hope you still find this information useful. Actually there are many numerology books/e-books available as resources. I am currently out of town, forgot the exact titles and author. You can Google, or if you need help I can always email you after I have returned home. Cheers ~
