Blue brings calm and peace, while yellow radiates liveliness and high levels of energy. Like a marriage between these two very different colours, green is a unifier of opposites, offering both the excitement of yellow and the tranquillity of blue.
It energizes blue’s passivity and soothes yellow’s intensity, inspiring us to be both active and peaceful at the same time. It is a mainstay of the seasons of spring and summer, thus symbolizing birth and growth.
Green is one of the reasons that spring brings so much excitement and activity. As a visual harbinger of the end of winter, green stems and leaves shoot up and out from the dark branches of trees and the muddy ground, letting us know that it’s safe for us to come out too.
In this way, green invites us to shed our layers and open ourselves to the outside world, not in a frantic way, but with an easy going excitement that draws us outside just to sniff the spring air. Unlike almost any other colour, green seems to have its own smell, an intoxicating combination of sun and sky—earthy, bright, and clean. Like new mown Grass..In the best-case scenario, it stops us in our tracks and reminds us to appreciate the great experience of simply being alive
Green balances our energy so that, in looking at it, we feel confident that growth is inevitable. It also gives us the energy to contribute to the process of growth, to nurture ourselves appropriately, without becoming overly attached to our part in the process. Green reminds us to let go and let nature do her work, while at the same time giving us the energy to do our own
May you each continue to Grow as Mother Earth pushes us all up through the layers of negative Dust we have accumulated, to find our own new shoots of Green Growth.
