Born January 29th 1954, Oprah Winfrey was originally called Orpah. Orpah was the sister in law of Ruth, in the Biblical Book of Ruth. Unfortunately a nurse misspelled her name on the birth certificate and she has been Oprah ever since.

The fact that Oprah Winfrey was named after a biblical character is interesting considering she belongs to the purple colour group. Purple is the priest.

Every colour group has a collection of memories based on its collective historical experience. The more an experience charged with emotion has been repeated over time, the more that experience together with the reactions it caused is committed to unconscious memory as instinct.

Human culture relies on different people performing different tasks. The brain is designed to remember, and each of us has a survival instinct that absorbs information relating to danger and the ways of surviving it. Fluctuations in energy are triggers to which events are remembered and which events are forgotten. Our survival instinct remembers any event that is associated with adrenalin or exhaustion. This is because the two greatest threats to life have been attack and famine, and our survival instinct has adopted an array of strategies to help us survive both environmentally and socially.

Other aspects of Oprah Winfrey’s life that display the energy of purple include her ability and interest in all matters spiritual. From an early age Oprah learned to commit passages of the Bible to memory, which earned her the nickname of ‘the preacher’ at her local church.

From a hard and poor upbringing to the one of the most influential women in history, the story of Oprah Winfrey is the story of purple and the story of the priest.

The world of purple is the world of dichotomy and Oprah’s life story reflects this duality. On the one hand she was raised in a strict manner with physical punishments if she misbehaved. At the same time she was encouraged and nurtured and taught to read at an early age. In her teens she earned a scholarship and was regarded as teachers pet yet at the same time her home life was difficult and tumultuous.

After finishing high school a number of important events occurred. The first was a full scholarship to Tennessee State University, the second was winning the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant, while the third was being hired by the local black radio station, WVOL, to do the news part-time.

Oprah Winfrey’s natural talent and charisma combined with hard work and opportunity saw a girl born in rural poverty rise to become a millionaire at 32 and one of the most influential women in the world by 40.

Purple is the priest, a traditional role that survived by being of service to the community through charity as well as spiritual and physical help. The priest is a collective term representing those people in the past that performed the role of shaman, priest, monk and nun, healer, witchdoctor or wise-woman. Purple is the colour group that shares the collective experiences, dangers and reactions of this traditional role inside their unconscious as instinct. This means the more purple becomes stressed, the more they will return to the instincts of the priest.

To be successful in their role, purple has inherited a number of traits as unconscious instinct. One is a natural charisma that makes other people admire and want to be around them and it is here that Oprah Winfrey excels. People love Oprah; they trust her and admire her. They buy any book she recommends and are willing to listen to any belief or philosophy she thinks is worthwhile.

Oprah Winfrey - typical of the priest - has turned her daytime chat show into an on-air counseling and self development centre, which can sometimes resemble a confessional for tortured souls to relieve their burdens. The Wall Street Journal coined the term Oprahfication to describe her unique way of turning a public confessional into a therapy. The television show Futurama has an episode where Oprahism is a legitimate religion by the year 3000 AD.

The historical value of the priest rested in the practical help they gave through medicine, combined with spiritual and psychological therapy, given with generosity and public service.

Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network has raised more than $51,000,000 for charity, while Oprah herself donates more personal money than any other celebrity in America.

Oprah Winfrey lives on a 42 acre estate with ocean and mountain views called, not unexpectedly, ‘the promised land’.
