1) COLOUR ENERGY FOR BODY AND SOUL- GREEN

By Inger Naess – From her book 'An Introduction to Colour Energy'
© All Rights Reserved

Green – Devotion and Love

Green is the harmonizing and balancing energy. It has a strong influence on the heart and blood supply. If you have been through tough times you may not feel for the green colour energy. The green colour has a lot to do with the way you feel about yourself.

The green colour is associated with abundance, and those who like green are often great givers. Green is connected with money, which in itself is an energy.

What we do with this energy may be compared with "as you give you shall receive."

We also talk about people with green thumbs who have a knack for making everything grow. Contact with nature is very important if you want to be in balance and have a peaceful and harmonious life. One thing you can do if you feel uncomfortable and void of the green energy, is to go out into the woods or to the park.

Find a tree and stand with your back to its trunk. Put your left arm behind you around the tree trunk and your right arm over your solar plexus. Breath in deeply and ask the tree to give you energy-remember to thank the tree before you leave. Try this and you will find out that it works.

If you notice you are using a lot of green in your clothes and that you surround yourself with a lot of green, you may harbour a lot of anxiety that you are not fully aware of. Try to change the colours, bring in some warmer colours.

Red is the complementary colour to green and may be good in this situation. Yellow might not be so good. We .all have a need of expressing ourselves, but if we exaggerate the green we may easilybecome too moralizing, and put ourselves on a pedestal. You may like to impress people and may rather want to be admired than loved.


PHYSICALLY green gives energy to the heart, lungs, bronchia, arms and hands and the secondary circulation system.


MENTALLY green gives a feeling of renewal, of new life, freshness and clarity. This colour also governs not only the physical heart but also the emotions. Heart attacks often happen because of a fear or dread of giving, a fear of being involved in anything, or a fear of being hurt. An offended and hurt green person who feels he has lost face may also get stomach troubles. If such emotional feelings and problems are not solved and extend over a longer period of time, hypertension and a heart attack may be the result.

The heart is the centre of the soul and it is the heart that makes us fellow-beings, but the most important thing is that love is the leading principle of life. When we are together with family and friends we strengthen the heart energy.

Having children also develops the heart centre. We have to accept and love our children how they are, and for what they are. We help them on their own terms and love them without expecting anything in return. We should do the same with all our fellow-beings. When our heart centre is in balance we are able to give positive feelings and happiness, unconditionally to everybody.


THE POSITIVE SIDES OF GREEN
*harmonic

*understanding
*self-controlled

GREEN ENERGY MAY HELP WHEN:
• you need to soothe your nerves
• you have a headache
• you feel you need to balance yourself
for peace and harmony
• you have chronic diseases
• you have digestive problems
• you need to calm down before an important meeting


OTHER GREEN COLOURS


Emerald green is a colour that has been used throughout the ages to enhance truth and knowledge. There is a strong vibration in the emerald green colour, so if you want to use this colour you should be a healthy person.


Turquoise is a mixture of green and blue-a cool and soothing colour that is very good in enhancing public speaking abilities.


ESSENTIAL BATH OILS
Eucalyptus oil comes from the silvery, blue-green leaves of one of the tallest trees in the world, producing a cool camphorous smell. The oil has an antiseptic effect. It dissolves mucous, stimulates the skin, and relaxes the muscles. In addition, the oil may help breathing problems, asthma, bronchitis, and pains in the joints or muscles. Add 5-6 drops of Eucalyptus oil to your bath water.

Another good bath is 2 drops of Eucalyptus oil, 3 drops of Lemon oil, and 2 drops of Thyme oil.


Sandalwood oil is another beneficial oil to use in your bath water. The smell is sweet, and it contains the sandlewood tree, roses, and spice. It blends well with Rose, N eroli and Benzoin. The oil of Sandalwood is one of the most useful oils for the skin. It is the classic choice for dry skin. It relieves itching and acts as an antiseptic in acne. A recommended dosage is 5-6 drops.


AFFIRMATION
"Let the green energy flow through my heart and give me peace and harmony in body and soul."


GREEN TIPS
Green is a good colour for bedrooms and kitchens. For example, you may want to keep a lot of green plants in the kitchen. However, in a room where you are working with mental creativity, green is not so good. In workshops where people are working in putting thoughts into practice, green is a good colour.


GREEN IN CLOTHES
When you are wearing a lot of green clothes it gives the impression of stability, tradition, and practical sense. You look down to earth and seem efficient and positive. Too much green and you will seem stiff and not very agile. You will seem analytical and not imaginative when it comes to original thoughts.


GREEN FOODS
Avocados, beans, broccoli, cucumber, all salads, peas, green squashes.


THE ASTROLOGICAL SIGN AND PLANET FOR GREEN
Green sign is Libra, and the planet is Venus. Blue/Green sign is Scorpio, the planets are Mars and Pluto.


FRIDAY IS A GREEN DAY


In the next issue learn about color BLUE.


2) CHAKRAS OF THE EARTH


Our beautiful Planet Earth is a conscious and vibrant living entity. As our body have 7 major Chakras, so does the Earth. Energy flows through each of Earth's main Chakra and makes up the spiritual body that is our world. The Chakras of the Earth are connected by energy circuits called Ley lines. This planetary grid system has been known and mapped for Millennium.

Ancient civilizations revered Earth as a sacred entity. They believed her to be their “Great Mother” and often built their megalithic sacred monuments in areas they considered “Earth’s Highest Energy Vortexes” or “Earth Chakras”. Structures like Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Egypt and Mayan, Aztec, and Incan monuments along with many temples, churches and pilgrimage sites are now considered powerful energetic spots.

Visiting these sites, especially to mediate and make ceremony, can result in strong connections with mother Earth, opening your own Chakra centers, and the ability to be a stronger conduit of universal energy.

The relationship between us and Earth has always been reciprocal: we are connected through an omnipresent universal energy. Unfortunately, our modern economy and the wide spread pollution have contaminated the planet. As the dominant conscious species on this planet, it is our duty to keep a healthy energetic flow by synchronizing our lifestyles to her rhythm and create a harmonious habitat for ourselves and other sentient beings.

It’s remarkable how our own system is a smaller version of the Earth: 70% of the Earth is covered by water and the human body is approximately 70% water… the body is made up of trillions of cells and the Earth contains trillions of life forms… when one ecosystem suffers, the whole Earth suffers and when one organ in the body suffers, the whole body suffers. This is why caring for our Earth’s chakras is as important as caring for our own. Continue reading about Earth Chakras, learn about their location, function and watch videos about them.


3) WATERMELON: HEALTH BENEFITS AND TIPS
By Diana Herrington, care2.com


Everyone loves a big piece of thirst-quenching watermelon on a hot day; it is so refreshing.  I love watermelon and can easily eat a quarter of one in one sitting!

“When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what angels eat.” –Mark Twain

Did you know that is it also nutrition packed too? Yes, watermelon is 92 percent water, but that other 8 percent is filled with good nutrition and amazing health benefits; so many benefits that we consider it a powerfood.


Health Benefits of Watermelon:

1. Watermelon is extremely alkaline-forming in the body. There are a host of benefits to this.

2. Watermelon is the lycopene leader among fresh fruits and vegetables. Deep red varieties of watermelon have replaced the tomato as the lycopene king. The red pigment — also found in apricots, pink grapefruit, and papaya — is an important antioxidant. It has been found to be helpful in reducing the risk of prostate, breast, and endometrial cancers, as well as lung and colon cancer. Lycopene’s ability to neutralize singlet oxygen radicals was better then the antioxidant abilities of beta-carotene and vitamin E.  (Source: Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics in 1989)

3. Watermelon contains citrulline, which can trigger production of a compound in the body that helps relax the body’s blood vessels,

4. Watermelon is a diuretic and was a homeopathic treatment for kidney patients before dialysis became widespread. 5. Watermelon is a very good source of potassium; it helps muscle and nerve function. It can ease inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.

6. Watermelon is a certified heart healthy food by the American Heart Association.

I am so happy to know all the benefits to this favorite summer fruit of mine. Watermelon is often all I have for breakfast and it always amazes me that I feel full for hours afterwards. It is also true that watermelon is high in sugar, with 10 grams per cup. But think about it, what is a better choice: a candy bar or a nutritious piece of watermelon?


Watermelon Nutrition Facts
Excellent source of vitamin C. Very good source of vitamin A. Good source of potassium and magnesium. Small amounts of most of the B vitamins. Trace amounts of vitamin K and pantothenic acid. Lots of trace amount minerals (copper, iron, manganese, selenium and zinc) Over 6888 mcg of lycopene. Supplies 2 percent of daily fiber needs. Only 45 calories per cup, so it is an ideal diet food. Fat free. Well, almost: 1 cup of diced watermelon has .23 grams of fat. Only .02 grams of saturated fat in 1 cup of diced watermelon. No cholesterol, caffeine or alcohol (I find it funny that this info is included in the breakdown). Low sodium: 1.52 mg in 1 cup of diced watermelon. There is even 1 gram of protein in 1 cup of diced watermelon. (Source: whfoods.com)


Is it a fruit or a vegetable?

Watermelon is considered a vegetable by some. It is related to the squash and pumpkin family and is grown as a vegetable crop, using vegetable production systems.

“Watermelon is the fruit of a plant originally from a vine of southern Africa. Like the pepper, tomato and pumpkin, it is the ripened ovary of a seed plant and its contents, which, botanically speaking, make it fruit.” Calgary Herald In China, watermelon is stir-fried, stewed and often pickled and used as a vegetable.

Well whatever! It is a fruit as far as I am concerned. So let’s have a little watermelon fun.


Watermelon Facts and Trivia


2012 US National Watermelon Queen Katelyn Kelly says: “Canadians love watermelon. This is where we export most of our watermelon.”

It was 5,000 years ago that the first recorded watermelon harvest occurred in Egypt and they shared them with the rest of civilization in the 10th century.

Over 1,200 varieties of watermelon are grown worldwide. About 200-300 varieties are grown in the U.S. and Mexico. This fruit was held in such regard that it was placed in the tombs of many Egyptian kings.

The word watermelon first appeared in the English dictionary in 1615.

In China and Japan, watermelon is a popular gift to bring a host.

Watermelons come in many shapes and sizes; the newest shape is a square watermelon. The Japanese created them to save space; the watermelon are of exact dimensions of Japanese refrigerators, allowing a full grown watermelon to fit precisely. Early explorers used watermelons as canteens.

After a watermelon was thrown at Roman Governor Demosthenes, he placed the watermelon on his head and thanked the thrower for giving him with a helmet to wear as he fought Philip of Macedonia.

U.S. ranks fourth in the world growing watermelons. It is grown in 44 states, mostly Florida, Texas, California, Georgia, and Arizona.  In 1999 over 4 billion pounds of watermelon were produced in the US.

Watermelon is grown in over 96 countries worldwide. A giant watermelon weighing a watery 268.8 pounds was grown in Arkansas by Lloyd Bright, earning the Guinness World Record for heaviest watermelon in September of 2005.


How to Pick a Good Watermelon

They are not one of the “dirty dozen” (the most heavily sprayed produce). They are one of the 15 most clean non-organic fruits and vegetables.

Decide what size of watermelon you want as there are many different sizes. Watermelons can weigh anywhere from a few pounds to more than 90.

Do you want a seedless watermelon? Most seedless watermelons are often not organic so that may be something for you to consider. Choose a melon that is medium to light green but not yellowing, with several spots of light green on it.

Make sure it feels heavy for its size. It is should not be bruised, shriveled, cracked or moldy. The purpose of the thick rind is to protect the contents inside. Minor scratches are okay.

Check out the bottom of the watermelon; this should have a creamy yellow spot which is where the watermelon sat on the ground while ripening. If this spot is white or green, it may not be ripe as it was picked too soon. The melon should have a faint aroma and the end should be soft. Tap the watermelon with the palm of your hand lightly several times. What you hear should be a somewhat hollow echo. This indicates the fruit is likely fresh and its flesh is very hard, which is when they taste best. If the sound is a thunk as though it’s solid, that’s no good and too hollow a sound is also not good. You just have to do the trial and error thing until you learn which watermelons are the best.

The best watermelons will, of course, be the ones you grow yourself.


Tips for Preparing and Storing Watermelon

Always wash the exterior of the melon before slicing to remove any bacteria on the surface.

After they have been cut, store in the fridge.

Before eating a piece that has been in the fridge, pull it out long enough for it to go to room temperature. This maximizes its phytonutrient capacity.

Store uncut whole watermelons at 70 degrees Fahrenheit: A study by the USDA’s South Central Agricultural Research Laboratory in Lane, Oklahoma found that watermelon stored at 70 F gained up to 40 percent more lycopene and 50 percent to 139 percent more beta-carotene when compared to freshly picked watermelon.

Watermelons continue to produce nutrients after they are picked; the chilling slows this process. Refrigerated watermelon starts to decay after a week.

Watermelons last from 14 to 21 days at 13 degrees Celsius (55 F) after harvest.


Eating Watermelons

Eat watermelon on its own. Melons only take 15 – 30 minutes to digest; they do not combine with any other food. Always eat separately and wait 30 minutes before eating something else. Eat room-temperature watermelon, as it is much easier on the stomach.

Every part of a watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds. Yes you can eat watermelon rinds: We usually throw out the hard green rind of the juicy watermelon, but did you know that the watermelon rind has nutritional and healing benefits? This wasted food can do good things for your body. Also, using it will cut down on your garbage, thus helping the environment. My favorite way to eat it is to cut it into cubes and put it in a big bowl.

Watermelon juice is so easy and a wonderful cooling, alkalizing beverage and, of course, filled with nutrients. Find just how easy it is to make here: watermelon juice.

Watermelon popsicles are great for children and adults too. Learn how to make them here: watermelon popsicles.


Cautions

Some people may experience watermelon allergy symptoms from mild to severe hives, facial swelling, diarrhea or anaphylaxis. Diabetics: The American Diabetes Association says you may eat watermelon as a fruit selection, provided you are following the guidance of your health care provider.

Eating large amounts of lycopene-rich foods (tomatoes and watermelon) may cause gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion and bloating. Large quantities of foods containing potassium, like watermelon, may adversely affect people diagnosed with hyperkalemia, or too much potassium in their blood.

Eating lots of watermelon will most likely cause a frequent need to urinate.
