Giddy about Green

Ben-Pentreath-blog2-500x375

Green is one of my favorite colors (next to pink, of course!). So, I thought I’d share some inspirational green images and a few Silver Lined tidbits about the color itself.

Grass green is the most restful color. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being.

Green is favored by well balanced people. Green symbolizes the master healer and the life force.  It was believed green was healing for the eyes. Egyptians wore green eyeliner. Green eyeshades are still used (though not by moi).

 Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony. Green is a safe color, if you don’t know what color to use anywhere use green.

Green contains the powerful energies of nature, growth, desire to expand or increase.

Green says growth – balance – harmony. It is a color of healthy relationships.

Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony.

Balance and a sense of order are found in the color green. Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.

 Green is a safe color, if you don’t know what color to use anywhere use green.

Green is the color associated with the Heart Chakra. This chakra deals with higher consciousness and love.Green is the color of nature, fertility, life.

You should eat raw green foods for good health (DUH).

Put some green in your life when you want:

a new state of balance
feel a need for change or growth
freedom to pursue new ideas
protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others

How’s that for a Silver Lined color?  Hope you have a green day!

    Wow! I can't help it… I seem to begin each of your posts with Wow! Such a lovely post to greet me this morning – from the beautiful photos to the interesting information about the colour green. Blue, green and yellow have always been favourites of mine. An analgeous colour scheme can be very calming. I agree, when in doubt use green. Barbara Barry says so too!
