This blog is about an unexplained coincidence of how we got the message from the Universe that we have chosen the right colour for branding Abundance. The colour purple.
As Abundance Board Members, we had our first meeting in April 2016 at Ku Chawe Inn on Zomba Mountain, Southern Malawi. It was an exciting time and we had come together with the only intention of creating greater good for the world. Some of us were meeting for the first time but it was incredible how quickly we all became friends. We had lunch together and we discussed the aims and objectives of Abundance. Towards the end of the meeting, we were discussing about the "branding" of the organization. It was agreed that the logo should be the tree of life which is a universal symbol of "Abundance", signifying growth and regeneration. Next we discussed the colour for the logo, and we all agreed that it should be purple. Purple being harmony of red(yin) and blue(yang), signifying spiritual fulfillment. Purple and has been used to signify abundance in many cultures.
After the meeting, as we were getting into the vehicle to leave the hotel, one of the members said that we should take a quick photo as a memory of the first board meeting. We quickly stood in a row next to the car and clicked a picture. On our drive down the mountain we saw a spectacular rainbow....one of us commented that it is a promise from above...of success, which brought smiles to our faces.
A day later, as we were looking at the the picture clicked at the hotel car park...... and found that there were purple blossoms in the background. Coincidence?
