Messages from the Rainbow
The colours of Nature soothe and calm, energize, inspire and uplift. From the vivid blue of the sky to the gentle green of new spring growth, to the sunny yellow of a daffodil to the array of colours seen in flowers peeking through green foliage, the colours of the natural world bring beauty and delight into our life. Like every other aspect of Nature, each colour has a quality and vibration that can balance, harmonize and bring healing to our body, mind, emotions and spirit.
What colours are you drawn to? They may change from day to day or one may be your particular favourite. Check out the colour that may be helpful for your Sun sign at this time. Colour can easily be incorporated into your life through foods, clothing, bedding, decor, jewelry and through visualization. If you have difficulty visualizing, say the name of the colour or gaze upon an item of that colour. Breathe a colour in...imagining it going to a specific area in your body. Or, imagine it filling and surrounding your entire body, strengthening your physical body and bringing a sense of peace and calm to your mind and emotions. ARIES (March 20-April 19) TURQUOISE combines the blue of the sky and the green of the earth to create balance. Spend time outdoors soaking in the energy of earth and sky. Feel the inner peace and calm connecting with Nature brings. AFFIRMATION: As I inhale, I connect with the sky. As I exhale, I settle into the support of the Earth. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) SPRING GREEN is the colour of renewal and new growth. As you begin a new year with your birthday, what new ideas, projects, ways of being are you considering? Is it time for a fresh take on something that is out dated? Breathe in the vibrancy of Spring Green and allow it to nurture your desire for new beginnings. AFFIRMATION: I celebrate my growth as I step into a new year, releasing those aspects that no longer serve me.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) PINK is the colour of unconditional love. As you clean out the old to prepare for a new year with your birthday, let go of self-judgements, regrets, self-criticism and worries. Your journey has sometimes been difficult, but in your heart you know you always tried to do your best. Each day is a new beginning allowing you to make choices that nurture self love. AFFIRMATION: I love, accept and appreciate myself for the unique and special being that I am.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ORANGE is stimulating and re-vitalizing to body, mind and spirit as well as calming to the nervous system. Breathe in Orange light, seeing it flow to every organ and cell of your body. Whenever you need a boost in your energy or feel down, imagine yourself bathed in Orange light, renewing you to the core of your being. AFFIRMATION: Orange light surrounds me and fills every cell of my being. I feel rejuvenated and filled with joy.
LEO (July 23-Aug.22) GREEN is a relaxing colour. It is seen everywhere in Nature and can restore our well-being and reconnect us to the rhythms of the natural world. Breathe in Green to quell anxiety, calm your mind and nurture inner peace. It is also the colour of the Heart Chakra. Allow it to fill your heart with an abundance of self-love. AFFIRMATION: I inhale peace of mind, allowing a deep sense of peace and calm to fill every cell of my being. VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22) LAVENDER is soothing and also uplifting. It nurtures and expands our intuition and connection to spirit. During Taurus, strengthen skills and practices that keep you grounded, centered and connected to your inner knowingness. Then, be sure to utilize those practices everyday during Gemini. AFFIRMATION: Each day offers me wondrous opportunities to step more fully into my true self. I appreciate all my experiences.
LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.22) SUNNY YELLOW shines brightly for you, uplifting your spirits. Allowyourself time to assimilate the occurrences and insights of the past few months. You have experienced many opportunities for growth. Breathe...you are doing just fine! AFFIRMATION: I am grounded in the Earth, filled and surrounded by the Light and guided by my inner knowingness in all things and at all times. All is in Divine Order.
SCORPIO (Oct.23-Nov.21) AQUAMARINE reminds us of the warm, soothing waters of the Caribbean. When you feel tense, anxious or challenged, breathe...then, take time to release, relax and nurture yourself in some way. Imagine floating effortlessly on serene Aquamarine water; or take a relaxing aromatherapy bath; or listen to the soothing sound of a fountain or waterfall. Let go of stress as soon as you can. AFFIRMATION: I breathe out whatever I no longer need. I breathe in love, joy and inner peace. One day at a time, I patiently allow life to unfold before me.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.22-Dec.21) PEACH is the colour of the second Chakra--the seat of creativity and going with the flow. This is an especially powerful window of opportunity for you to tap into your creativity and express it in whatever way feels appropriate. Follow your heart and allow your imagination to flow. Give yourself the time and space, even if it is only a few minutes here and there, to tap into what is ready to be expressed. AFFIRMATION: My creativity is awaiting expression. I open and flow with whatever emerges from deep within.
CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19) PURPLE is the colour of royalty and power. This is indeed a power time for you--a time when things may seem to fall into place more easily and when you may gain a greater understanding of the past months experiences. Feel a sense of accomplishment and self-empowerment in your dealings and within yourself. Trust that you are doing a really good job, sometimes under less than ideal circumstances. Feel good about who you are and all the good you do! AFFIRMATION: I step forward in strength and confidence, walking ever forward on my path, in my life, aligned with Spirit and guided by love.
AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18) ROSE RED is the colour of vitality and deep love. Allow Rose Red to flow through your body when you feel tired, depressed, depleted or down. Allow it to fill your heart centre igniting a deeper sense of self-love. It is the colour of the base Chakra and will assist in grounding you into the present moment. AFFIRMATION: A beautiful Rose Red light fills, surrounds and radiates from my being, nurturing courage, inner strength and self-love. I am so very blessed.
PISCES (Feb.19-March 19) COBALT BLUE is cooling and soothing. When breathed in through the solar plexis and sent to an area of pain, nerves are calmed and relief may be experienced. Visualizing it when going to sleep can bring a sense of deep peace and rejuvenation. Work with this vibrant colour and notice what you experience. AFFIRMATION: Cobalt Blue nurtures and realigns my body, mind and spirit, strengthening my vitality and inner peace.
