Color and Mood,Let’s Look Shall We?

Colror and Pyschology Wheel

If we look in scripture we see color associated with for example the priesthood, royalty, regalness, and seasons have colors, nature is all about a range of colors.  In winter people can get more depressed, less light, less, color.  Yet, too much sun and your skin burns and it can be deadly, so too much yellow, hmmm, not so good.  Too much darkness and depression will set in, so everything, even color has impact and I find it interesting what colors mean, what effect they can have on mood.  Interior decorators will use color to often give the appearance of more space to smaller apartments or rooms, or add color accents with rugs to do so.  How can we use color?

When decorating, if we have someone who has good taste to help us out and can work with the color wheel we might be able to create the perfect harmony of colors in the home, and same goes for our office if we have leeway in decorating.  What about wardrobe?  Let’s say you want to look savvy, sophisticated, but also vibrant, well maybe outfits for ladies that mix black with turquoise when going to work or to events, things like that.  If you want to bring creativity to your area if you are an artist, find a balance of two colors to bring out focus, but also creative flow, put decor around your space, artistic space or workspace. We can encourage others to do the same, friends, family, partners.  It seems to be an interesting area of consideration as regards moods and psychology, even for how we decorate our space, our wardrobe, accessories.  Don’t you think?

Benefits of Mindfulness, Even in Prayer

Northern Lights II

When we refer to mindfulness, being in the moment, that sense of being in the moment and letting the moment just be, acknowledge what it feels like, but don’t immediately react, don’t be reactive, get centered, it has a number of benefits.  I did a bit of research and wanted to share them with you.

  1. Decreased Stress
  2. Higher brain functioning
  3. Increased immune function
  4. Lowered blood pressure
  5. Lowered heart rate
  6. Lowered anxiety levels
  7. Experience of being calm and internally still
  8. Experience of feeling connected
  9. Increased awareness
  10. Increased attention and focus
  11. Increased clarity in thinking and perception

These are the core benefits of practicing awareness, and for me music and prayer are how I do mindfulness.  When the weather is nicer and flowers are in bloom, sitting in the park with headphones and calming music, observing the world around me is how I plan to enhance awareness even further.  As we get more centered and clear in our mind etc… the greater clarity our lives will have.

Amen

 

Connecting To Sacred Spirit Meditation

Trinity

 

This meditation will help you at any time of the day to connect to the Holy Spirit, to sacred Spirit, you and the creator coming together to connect to that Sacred Spirit, to wisdom.  Wisdom is the greatest gift you could be given in this lifetime, without wisdom, doesn’t matter how many Ph.d degrees you get, you’ll never get life, not as God would have us “get it”.  I hope this helps you in your journey to making choices and decision, to receive divine inspiration.

Peace, Whose Peace?

Peace I Leave You.jpg

Notice all these organizations dedicated to Peace that have come up in the world, and how everyone seems to seek peace.  People seem to seek peace in stuff, in having lots of money, in having the perfect relationship, all these things, but yet peace seems to escape us.  Even those who seem to have riches and seemingly perfect relationships, where’s the everlasting peace? When Jesus talks of peace that is not the kind the world gives, he is right.  The world gives temporary peace, flesh peace, but no lasting peace of the heart, spirit and soul.  Try something for me.  Focused on the person of Christ, clear boundaries in life and listening to this music somewhere quiet for at least 15 minutes a day for a week, see how you feel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwoJFRGKm40.  See what happens, make the time at the beginning, the end of the day, middle of the day, go by instinct.  We can aim for all the fame and wealth etc.. in the world, none of that will bring us true and lasting peace, none of it, especially not if it was achieved unethically.

Let Go Of, Move Forward

Northern Lights II

This presentation discusses things we need to let go of in order to move forward.  I am adding the meditation “What is Holding You Back?” to compliment it.  The two combined I hope will help you in your life journey. If these have been a blessing I hope you will consider donating to this blog.
