Your Score

It means...
0 to 35 Your heart is black
Your heart is so filled with negativity that it won't let any love or light in. Perhaps you are terribly hurt or disappointed about something that happened to you in the past, and you never got over it. Or perhaps someone hurt you or you never felt loved. Whatever the reason, some darkness from the past is hovering over you and preventing you from appreciating all the best things that life has to offer. In addition, it's preventing you from becoming all that you can be.

Change must come from within, and you can only change by making small steps in a positive direction. Consider getting counseling. It will help you deal with whatever is troubling you. And redirect the wave of your thoughts by making a list of all the things you're thankful for each day. You'll be surprised about just how long that list is and soon, you'll have a greater appreciation for all you've taken for granted.

Go to the park, the country, the beach, or the woods. Take in the beauty that's all around you. Let it fill you, touch you, and heal you. Think about how good it feels to be alive. Read poetry, do some good deeds, get in touch with an old friend, or visit a relative. Do something you thoroughly enjoy. And the minute a negative thought enters your mind, counter it with two positive thoughts.

Before long, your heart will feel lighter and will turn from black to blue. And if you keep thinking positively, it will eventually turn to red. You can do it!
36-51 Your heart is blue.
Your heart is wounded, broken. You've suffered a major disappointment or heartbreak that you've not gotten over. Grief is normal following such a blow, and it's healthy to grieve. Just don't lock yourself into the blues and remain there forever. You can't let it rule your life and lock out all happiness. If you do, your heart will go from blue to black, and then it will be much harder to recover. Every day, you need to take some small steps toward healing. You can do so by getting some counseling--joining a grief recovery group perhaps. And you can do so by finding joy in the simple every day things. As in all things, change will ultimately come from you. You have to accept that yes this thing happened, but you're still alive and kicking, and though the worst came, it doesn't mean that the rest of your life must be miserable or without hope or happiness. Life holds so much more than this one event. You must seek joy again, and if you do, you'll find it, and eventually, it will turn your blue heart red again.

52 to 67 Your heart is green.
You're either uncertain about what you want out of life or you're very young and inexperienced. Or perhaps something happened that changed your way of thinking, and now you're like a child again--searching for who you are. At any rate, you're wanting to grow and move on with your life. Your heart truly is an open book, waiting to be written. You're seeking happiness and fulfillment. You must proceed, cautiously, however, for you could misread the signals and move too quickly and find yourself full of heartache that could be difficult to cope with.

Still your faith in yourself and in tomorrow is a good thing and will be your key to making progress. Keep your heart open, no matter what comes, and good things will come to you, turning your heart from green to red.

68 to 83 Your heart is red.
Your heart is warm, loving, and full of goodness. You know what you want from life, and you're aware of all that life can offer. Of course you've had your share of heartache and woe. Who hasn't? But you've moved ahead despite it and have reclaimed happiness. You make the most of each day, having faith in yourself. You deal with whatever obstacles come your way in a healthy and productive manner that brings about further growth. What's more, you like yourself and accept who you are. You believe in yourself and in your dreams, and you're destined to reap the rewards of tomorrow with this attitude. Yes, your future is bright indeed. And if things continue like this, your heart of red will turn into a heart of gold.

84 to 100 Your heart is gold.
You have the warmest heart of all--a heart of shining gold. It's so good that it glows. You love other people, and all living things, having a great respect and appreciation for all. What's more, you love yourself as well, and this inner warmth comes out in a positive way when you deal with others. You've suffered some blows, but you dealt with it and moved on. And you never lost faith. You believe in yourself and in your dreams, and because you do, you're destined for success. Each day is a blessing to you, and no matter what tomorrow brings, you're sure to make the most of it, finding much happiness in the truly important things.
