This month of gift giving has inspired me to use this newsletter and opportunity to gift you, my readers, with some fun facts on color, and a few significant and easy helpers in the spiritual realm. I hope you will enjoy my gifts to you and find them of some value either now or in the future.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all!
First up: The Hawaiian Ho-oponopono.
Most of you have heard of this compassionate approach to problem solving coming out of Hawaiian wisdom. Whenever we are faced with a challenge or problem we are given 4 steps to say and work through. They are:
Please forgive me
I love you
These four simple steps to this method are supposedly used in any order. Repentance, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Love are the only forces at work – but these forces have amazing power.
Next, The Four Agreements.
Several years ago a simple little book was written by Don Miguel Ruiz and it became a huge best seller. For those of you who have never read his little book, you have a real treat in store for you, and for those of you who have read it, go back in time to review the wisdom in its pages:
1. Be Impeccable with your Word.
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
This is actually a compilation of several methods I have been taught over the years.Not attirbutable to any one system as I have combined several methods into this way of helping yourself through challenges.Bring in protection (energetically via color, intent or any method you have learned) and state your challenge, bringing to mind memories, and sensory memories.
Let them flood your body. Taking your wounded self, bring that wounded being into your bubble of protection. I generally make this bubble a color of healing and strength and often bring in angels, or masters, or Spiritual Teachers but you do what resonates for you).
Then say to your wounded self: I accept you just as you are. I forgive you. I am grateful for all our experiences so that we can learn and expand. I love you unconditionally. I am here for you always. You are never alone.
Sit with this as it sinks into your being and consciousness for as long as you can.
Color is a great way to “seal the deal” so to speak. My color sprays are perfect for this sort of exercise but you can bring color in with your intent, through essential oils, flower essences, gems, fabrics, and other items.
Now for wisdom I heard from a dear friend. She has taught me so many things over the years and I couldn’t wait to share this with you. When you are in a charged conversation with someone, before responding, ask yourself the following questions about what you are about to say:
Is it true?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
Would silence be better?
GREAT wisdom here.
PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2020
A hue that exudes friendly authority and the room for expanse and endless horizons!
According to Sherwin Williams, green kitchens are trending. Read about it here.
Many of you are probably familiar with the amazing work on color that Kate Smith does. Her website has been redesigned and is better than ever. Her newsletter addressing all the different “Colors of the Year” has great commentary. If you are at all into color you must pay a visit to Kate’s website. Enjoy!
Still shopping? What about a signed copy of Simply Color for Everyday Living along with a RAINBOW spray from the Simply Color Collection? I can’t think of a more thoughtful way of saying “I care about you” than this lovely combo.
This is the Table of Contents for Simply Color for Everyday Living, the latest book in the Simiply Color series. It was written by 25 professionals plus myself and covers all these ways to use color. Dr. Quaranto describes it as a “combination of self developement, feng shui,” and “tons of ideas.” The book is a great gift item, as well as a wonderful book for your own library and reference: http://www.lifepotentials.net/media/books
Season’s Blessings to you all! Until next month,
