|The Colour Green-An Overview
Being from the Emerald Isle, I can [url=http://www.tagverts.com/barbour.php]barbour online shop[/url] tell you that there are at least forty shades of green; in fact I am still counting! Lush, peaceful and vibrant greens can be seen around [url=http://www.osterblade.com]moncler sito ufficiale[/url] Ireland which gets plenty of rain to keep those shades of green going and growing!
Green is a colour that is known to calm people down; it is soothing and can help people feel more harmonious.
These days of course it is the colour which represents ecology and the colour which is the symbol of humans who are warriors for the environment.
Green is the colour that we see second-most in the natural world, after blue. This means that our familiarity with it can make is a relaxing backdrop in an interior environment.
The vast majority of our associations with green are positive with the exceptions of hospital green, slimy green and that kind of off-white green that some people become just before they vomit!!
The Colour Green-In Your Environment
Green is also associated with fertility and growth. This means that the right shade of green could make some couples feel more in tune with their fertility...so it could be perfect for a couple's bedroom.
Shades which fall into the range of olive greens are associated with peace and aqua greens are associated with protection and emotional healing. For bedrooms these can work well and it is best to avoid the yellow shades of green as these are more likely to [url=http://www.mxitcms.com/abercrombie/]abercrombie milano[/url] interfere with a good night's sleep!
In fact in many religions the colour green is associated [url=http://www.rtnagel.com/airjordan.php]nike air jordan pas cher[/url] with regeneration and resurrection. In Celtic Mythology the God of Fertility was symbolised by green. Those with green eyes are considered in some cultures to be mystical.
As green indicates safety and makes people feel relaxed both physically and mentally, then it can work [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/hollisteroutlet.php]hollister outlet[/url] well in environments such as waiting rooms and any spaces where it is advantageous to have people more relaxed than let's say, motivated or feeling [url=http://www.thehygienerevolution.com/hollister.php]hollister[/url] stressed.
So you could benefit from using green in:
• A waiting room, but try [url=http://www.fibmilano.it]woolrich[/url] to make is non-institutional
• Anywhere where there are people who need to remain calm
• Rooms which need to feel harmonious
• Rooms where you wish to have a touch of nature
The Colour Green-In The Chakra System
The word chakra is a Sanskrit word which means wheel. According to some [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/mulberrysale.php]mulberry outlet[/url] traditions, we have a number of chakras in our bodies. These chakras move in a spiral distributing energy and consciousness. If our chakras are balanced your health should be very good, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Green is the colour of the fourth chakra which is also known [url=http://www.jeremyparendt.com/Hollister-b5.php]hollister[/url] as the heart chakra.
It is found in the chest centre and it is meant to be a person's centre of love; being associated with both self love and love of others. When the heart chakra is functioning well the person will be empathetic, loving and compassionate.
The Colour Green-Different Shades Mean Different Things
A darker shade of green means money for many of us so we [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/barbourjackets.php]barbour jackets[/url] associate certain shades [url=http://www.gotprintsigns.com/abercrombiepascher/]abercrombie soldes[/url] of a duller, dark green with financial institutions, wealth and banking. Yet there is a subtle change when we hit a certain shade of dark green, an emerald green range of shades are often associated with dignity, wealth and beauty.
An olive green is the traditional colour of peace, whereas a yellow green can be associated with jealousy, discord and sickness.
Overall the colour green has an excellent potential healing power, so pick a shade that works for your environment and if you are unsure, test it out firstly with an accessory such as [url=http://www.sandvikfw.net/shopuk.php]hollister outlet sale[/url] a throw on the sofa to see how you feel and if it makes you feel more loving and compassionate!
