When we say “green” these days, it’s usually a reference to how environmentally friendly it is a product is or your recycling life. All good, but today, I want to share the original green that inspired this movement for people to be more conscious about mother Earth and their own plot on this planet. It’s “The Green Movement” The reason it is not called orange nor yellow is self-evident.
Green is the color for life. Springtime comes to rescue us after months of long low-hanging oceanic grey clouds and stark lifeless tress, in many places. Green is the color of hope that there is life after death; that things will come back to life again, and that means once we return to the earth, we will flourish once again. Green is the color of grass and leaves and that which invites us to come sit down, just be, and inhale as we welcome thoughts in the line of: Come and smell the joy that erupts from me; come dance with the “me” that dares to express life.
Green is also the color of the heart, the heart chakra. Green is the color of money (or at least our money, the dollar). Green says you too can have the power to burst forth into life—a much bigger, more luscious life than you ever thought possible. Green is a very daring color and yet it is also a healing color. Hospitals once had everyone wear green for just that reason, but the type of green they used was truly hideous, so now they have branched out into all other colors. But still, the idea for the original green was to give patients hope and make them feel they were outside of their situation in the hospital, where they could wish they could be.
Green is for St. Patrick’s Day. But, I just have to laugh that this supposed saint who rid Ireland of serpents associated with a number of Goddesses and who is now best remembered with a drunken green holy day. How fitting. The shamrock of good luck came back with the serpent’s bite and it “greened” him. So Green means good luck, unless you messed with the source of the good luck.
So when you need a good dose of hope and luscious energy, embrace everything green except food coloring and green beer (with food coloring in it). If you feel a need for hope, good luck, healing, and a more juicy life, wear green, paint a wall green, or get a heart chakra pillow
and use it. Your frontal bone is so porous it will allow the color green to permeate your inner being if you use it over your eyes.
Har Har Har Wahe Guru.
Blessings and delightful deep Love
