Add a Splash of Orange!

The colour orange is a 'social colour' as it helps bring people closer, encouraging conversation and connection. Orange is the colour that sparks creativity and activity. Unbeknownst to most, the colour also has healing powers and can help one overcome shock, depression, abuse, and can also treat problems associated to ovaries, intestines, lower kidneys and back. Surrounding oneself in the colour can be motivating and energizing.

If you wish to bring people together in a room, paint an accent wall in orange. Orange is a welcoming colour for places like hallways that need warming up. For stimulating collaborations in your office, use a combination of orange and other warm colours. Since orange is an approachable colour, wear an orange accessory when you are meeting someone for the first time. As for corporate culture, the colour is also used in organizations as it has the ability to encourage and bring out a sense of power, giving one purpose and intention.

Orange flowers like gladiolus or begonias can add energy in any commercial space, especially in a hotel. Place orange pillows on your armchair or couch to bring energy into a dark room or a windowless office. If you suffer from winter depression, introducing the colour orange into your space may help cheer you up. Orange is a very appetizing colour and is great to use in restaurants. Thus, you see the versatility in this colour as it covers and is used in various walks of life!

The colour orange is a derivative of red and symbolic of the element of fire. It is a subtler version of red that can be used where the effects of red are desired, but not to a large extent, as red would bring too much fire element into a living space. For people who think that the colour red is too strong and the significance of the colour is too straightforward, orange might be a better idea.

Orange can be one of the Feng Shui colours for love as it stands for optimism, which will help in drawing new love into one's life. It can help increase passion in a relationship. It is also beneficial for people who have just moved into a new place and want to find some new friends. Avoid it in small rooms as it can bring out the rebel in you!

Decoding Colours seen During Reiki Sessions!

Reiki is a system of healing which involves a Reiki practitioner who channels this healing energy (Reiki) to the receiver by placing the hands on or near the receiver. The Reiki energy then flows to the receiver, triggering a healing and re-balancing of that person's energy.

In fact, Reiki works with the body's own natural ability of healing itself, and the process simply accelerates this ability. Reiki healing also works on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the being. It allows deep and complete healing to occur as it addresses the underlying cause of illness, as well as the symptoms.

Seeing colours against closed eyelids during a Reiki session is common when the person is highly relaxed. The colours themselves are an indication that you are letting go and aware of the energy flowing through your body. These colours are associated with the 'Chakras' which are the energy centres of the body. There are seven 'Chakras' and they each have an associated colour. Seeing colours whilst in treatment is a tranquil and harmonious experience, adding to the deeply relaxing aspect of Reiki.

Here are a few indications of what seeing colours can mean. Red is related to the physical body, heart and circulation. It is the darkest colour and creates friction. Red usually depicts worries, unforgiving nature, obsessions, anger, anxiety or nervousness. If it is a dark red, it may indicate frustration or anger. If it is a bright and clear red, it means energy and vitality.

If you see gold, it is the colour of spiritual clarity. The colours that are most commonly seen during Reiki treatment sessions are mauve, purple, pink, white, gold and blue and are all associated with our upper chakras, spiritual awareness, opening and connection.

Seeing colours is a beautiful experience and it is due to vibrations that a person experiences these colours. At times, the colours can be an indication of areas of the individual that are being healed during the treatment. The chakra colour associated to that area of the body can give an idea about what is being healed. Interesting, isn't it?

Vaastu For April 2016

Make your child's room Vaastu-compliant for prosperity!

At its essence, Vaastu is a collection of ideas on how to create living and working environments that nurture our lives in a direction that promotes well-being. While designing a child's room, it is all about providing rest and rejuvenation. However, one needs to be practical while designing it. Every parent wishes to see their child's progress in life and creating a room as per Vaastu can give you positive results

.

It is ideal to have a child's room in the west. Remember to keep the bed in the south-west where the child can sleep with the head towards the south or east. Do not keep the door of the room directly facing the bed. South-west is ideal for placing furniture. It is best to avoid any kind of furnishing in the middle or centre of the room as it creates obstruction.

It is also recommended to keep all the furnishing 3 inches away from the wall. Closets and cabinets should be placed in the south or the west. Avoid installing a television, computer or laptop in the room as they affect the child's concentration. However, they can be placed in the north or south-east direction.

It is also best to avoid placing any exposed mirror in the room. Do not place any kind of mirror in front of bed at all. Your child's study table should be facing the east, north or north-east. East is the most ideal direction as it paves way for improved concentration.

The child's study area should also be free of clutter and mess at all times. Good lighting is important and should be fixed in the south-east direction. Adding a touch of green or blue in the room is a good idea as they are proven to be soothing and calming colours. Creating a safe and calm zone for your child is crucial. These simple Feng Shui solutions will bring harmony and peace in your child's life.
