Came across an insightful book
the other day written by ken Robinson.
The name of the book is "Finding your element".
The book focuses on how to find your Element in life. Doing somthing that comes so naturally and resonates strongly with you and makes you feel "this is who you really are" . It's what you absolutely love to do.
The Author describes the Element as a natural aptitude meets personal Passion . It's doing something that comes so natural. It could be art ,music, technology ,sports , accounting or any thing else for that matter.
Do you know what your Element is?
It's a good question,and either you know right away what your "Element" is or it will at least make you think deeply about it.
I really enjoyed reading this book and it's massage"Finding your passion could change every thing". Great read!
Calmness .. Mixed media on Canvas. 30x40". COLOR THERAPY In colour there is life. To understand this power, is living. Colour could very well be the most magnificent experience we take for granted. Look around; it's everywhere, surrounding and embracing us. We interpret life as much through colour as we do shape, texture and sound. The truth is, the power of colour is the very essence of life. Our most important energy source is light, and the entire spectrum of colours is derived from light. Sunlight, which contains all the wavelengths, consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on to exist on this planet. Light flows through our eyes and triggers hormone production, which influences our entire complex biochemical system. This biochemical system then affects our being. And light does not travel alone. Light travels with other energies . We know that each colour found in the visible light spectrum has its own wavelength and its own frequency, which produces a specific energy and has a nutritive effect. We know some rays can be dangerous if we are exposed to them. But the visible light, the rainbow, has a soothing effect on us. Light is the only energy we can see, and we see it in the form of colour. Our body absorbs colour energy through the vibration colour gives off. All organs, body systems, and functions are connected to main energy centres. Through colour we receive all the energies we need to maintain a health body, mind, and soul. The National Institute of Mental Health has done studies showing that our mental health, behaviour, and general efficiency in life depends to a great extent on normal colour balance. When something goes wrong, or is out of balance, we can strengthen our energy centres through the conscious use of colour. Light consists of the seven colour energies: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. Each colour is connected to various areas of our body and will affect us differently emotionally, physically, and mentally. By learning how each colour influences us, we can effectively use colour to give us an extra boost of energy when we need it. If you wake up in the morning with little energy, or you need to prepare for a business meeting, this is where the power of colours can help. All you have to do is reflect on the type of day you have planned; choose the colour that will help you meet the demands of the day; and then absorb that particular colour. It's like fuelling your system with the right kind of gas!
Flower colors are like a fistfull of paint brushes. Color your world with their various meanings and be inspired.
Red flowers: Symbolic of love, passion and energy.
Closest match to the Sun, a symbol of warmth , expansion and friendship.
Yellow is associated with Gold, and is considered a symbol of purity, clarity and intelligence .
Symbol of Growth, renewal, hope and good health.
Blue is the perfect flower to call out the muse in the artist, poet or musician in your life. It's the color of calmness and tranquility.
Is a symbol of nobilty and royalty. also at the same time energizing and spiritual.
