The Planet of Colours
UPDATE at the bottom!
As a child I often drew the space with me swinging happily on the swing hanging from the moon, surrounded by stars and planets. Today I realise how vivid the memories of my stellar origins still were and, although I had no conscious memories as a starseed of Mintaka, I spent hours giving shape and colour to the galaxies.
I loved to draw and episode 12 ‘The Planet of Colours’ of the inspirational book series ‘The travels of Palloncino’ tells of the special essence of colours and their symbolic, regenerating, activating and all-round healing power: from the body to the subtle bodies.
Colour gives vibrancy and light to life and together with sound and movement (I have already written an episode on the latter, it will come later on) is part of the Language of the Soul. Colour is an important mode of expression of the deepest part of us that I like to call Rainbow Light, Inner Being or Divine Spark, the luminous essence at the origin of who we really are.
May we all, adults and children alike, look at colours with the enchanted eyes of wonder to appreciate the preciousness, exhilaration and well-being they always give unconditionally, to everything and everyone.
The memorable adventure that the two little hot-air balloons will experience on the brilliant Planet of Colours stems from their desire to explore what is LIGHT, in all its infinite and shining forms: enjoy!
Palloncina and Palloncino explore the Skies of Possibilities through the telescope to find out where their next adventure will be.
The Planet of Colours attracts them. Its inhabitants – cheerful brushes – will become their friends, inspiring them to perceive the wonderful sensations that the colours of the rainbow offer.
Enjoy an excerpt of the book:
“GO AROUND THE PLANET AND YOU WILL DISCOVER OTHER COLOURS.”
ENCOURAGES THE GREEN PAINTBRUSH.
THE TWO HOT-AIR BALLOONS CONTINUE THEIR TOUR AND MEET A GROUP OF RED AND ORANGE PAINTBRUSHES.
THEY CAN’T BELIEVE THEIR EYES: THE PAINTBRUSHES ARE ALL DRESSED UP AND MOVING TO THE BEAT OF THE MUSIC.
“COME ON! JUMP IN!”
EXCLAIMS A RED PAINTBRUSH.
“YOU’LL FEEL THAT THE MOVEMENT IS SPONTANEOUS.” SAYS AN ORANGE PAINTBRUSH.
PALLONCINO AND PALLONCINA ENTER THE COLOURS AND THE PAINTBRUSHES DANCE WITH THEM. THE LITTLE HOT-AIR BALLOONS IMMEDIATELY FEEL THE VIBRATION OF THE COLOUR: EUPHORIA MAKES THEIR BODIES MOVE TO THE RHYTHM OF THE MUSIC.
AND THE PARTY CONTINUES…
ON WAKING, PALLONCINO AND PALLONCINA FIND THEMSELVES AMIDST COLOURFUL POSTERS.
“WHAT ARE YOU COLOURING?”
ASKS A STILL SLEEPY PALLONCINO.
“THE POSTERS TO DECORATE THE PLANET: WE CELEBRATE THE JOY OF LIFE, THE WONDER THAT WE ARE, AND OUR TALENTS”.
REPLIES THE PAINTBRUSH WHO IS COLOURING THE SPIRAL.
“WOW, THAT’S A GREAT IDEA!”
“LET’S DO IT IN THE GARDEN OF WONDERS TOO!”
*UPDATE: Would you like to gift a great book to your kids, pupils or to yourself?
Not long ago we published the inspirational book “The Planet of Colours” though it was only ebook and soft cover format. Today we also have a beautiful hard cover option available on several online resellers like Barnes & Noble and Amazon among others, not to mention the traditional bookshops.
We feel a strong call to dedicate ourselves to “The Travels of Palloncino” book series, it’s our top priority now, like a strong magnetism that keep us there 100%:
where’s your JOY, there’s your WAY:-)
It gives us so much joy to see that these books are already making an impact around the world – from Germany, UK, USA to Australia – and it’s a true bliss to give birth to them.
I (Helen) have almost drawn all the illustrations and I love putting them together with Lorenzo: it’s thrilling! Maybe I’ve been unsure regarding certain specific illustrations and when we assemble them, Lorenzo come up with the perfect idea for that special page. So it’s co-creation at its best and we feel like a lodestone keeping us glued to these books:-)
We only had un unexpected break last week since a little health problem “forced” us to take a few days off to take care of it and it has been a fantastic synchronicity since we already planned to visit our families for a couple of birthday’s celebrations. We just extended our staying there and it has been what we needed after many months of full-time work immersion. It has been a pleasure catching up with our nices and nephews and the rest of the family. We had lovely walks, parties, conversations, veggie garden’s prep & start and some rest. Sometimes the Universe has its own way to give us what we need, when we make excuses not to embrace it;-)
We have a total of 42 books in Italian & English, divided into:
33 episodes, 8 games (with practical application of the book’s concepts) and 1 colouring album.
Once we will be a bit more ahead with this majestic work, we’ll share other resources to help you with your needs and desires. They’ll integrate also our individual sessions – which have always been available – and group webinars as well.
This note is just to let you know that currently our focus is mainly on the children’s books creation and it will be so for some time. However, as we progress with Palloncino, we’ll be also able to offer other services that we have not been able to offer yet and that have been sitting behind the scenes for some time now.
As I write, we’ve all the book’s texts corrected (in Italian) and translated by me: I then send them for review to a lovely lady, Luisa, who lives in the Gold Coast, Australia. She’s currently translating episode n.14 “Good thoughts”, while we’re assembling the drawings of episode n.22 “Bells”. Each episode is not just entertaining, but also inspirational and carry very positive vibes & messages. We’ve currently paused the publications to give more space to the illustration’s assembling which is the major work right now.
In “The Travels of Palloncino” entertainment meets inspiration: a very powerful mix!!!
We wish we grew up reading these books, though we’re so grateful that they “arrived” to us at a later stage. These books do not really have a “recommended age” (though booksellers ask us to specify it) since they share timeless wisdom and our soul can enjoy them at any age or time!
