Color Helper: Green

Color Helper: Green

Wear or invite this color into your life for greater balance and good fortune.

GREEN reminds us, if we feel depleted or constricted, of the verdant life-force energy so beautifully expressed in the lush green growing things. Even in winter, there are evergreens–which many ancient people used to decorate their homes when days were short and cold–as reminders of the vitality of life. Green is also associated with the heart chakra, capable of growing such intimate and connected relationships.

Wear green today to help you connect with the abundant forces of life and heart. You might want to adopt a potted plant to water and care for. Find a painting or photo of a lush green landscape to hang nearby. Celebrate green with bunches of pine or fir, juniper or eucalyptus to place in vases around your home. Green is a relaxing yet reviving color. Enjoy!

Green occupies more of the human visible spectrum than any other color. It is the most neutral color for us to see, since we are used to seeing so much of us. It helps us relax mentally, and helps alleviate depression and anxiety.

Cait i so much appreciate your sharing green.
One of my all time favorite books that is my reference guide for healing is called The Seven Keys To Color Healing by Roland Hunt (Harper & Row) ISBN 0-06-064080-4

Healing Colour-Breathing Affirmation

"O Ray of Emerald Sympathy
Sustain,upbuild my wayward Heart:
Its strings attune in Symphony
Teach me to do my poiseful part.

O Cholorophyllic builder, true-
Heart-force in fields and men renew;
From Thee the tempo true is bidden
O Strengthen Thou the beat, the Rhythm.

The pulse of Brotherhood regain;
Bring forth the honey, harboured, hidden,
In human hearts now freely given,
Sweet food in All, for all, sustain! "

" Drink in the delight of early morning rays, shimmering from the dewy bejewelled grass; and O the refreshment of green foliage after rain! Visualize the sunshine sparkling from the shining trees at noon; and lastly, the glancing, dusk-rays dancing through the leaves. Here is Nature's Emerald, flashing Prana!
Drink deeply of the verdant rays, posed between the Gold of Wisdom and the Blue of Heaven!
