Thank you for your reply. I certainly understand now that your psychologist wasn't referring to your aura in your discussions about "thinking grey," and I think I have a pretty good idea now of what this greyness is and what it represents. It sounds like you're saying that when your environment seems to be gloomy and lifeless that your mood itself will eventually end up becoming kind of gloomy, dark, and numb to match the environment. And it sounds like your psychologist is basically trying to teach you to avoid engaging in the kinds of thinking patterns that can lead you to feel "grey." So, in other words, since thoughts precede feelings under a cognitive-behavioral therapy model, you need to change your "grey" thinking to the type of thinking that's associated with a healthier color in order to feel less "grey." Does that sound like it's more or less correct? If I'm missing something, feel free to let me know.
Take care, and good luck with your therapy.
