CHAKRA COLORS: BLUE IS THE COLOR OF THE THROAT CHAKRA

Blue is the color of the Throat Chakra, also known as Visuddha. This chakra is located in the throat.  It is linked to the throat, neck, hands, and arms. The Throat Chakra is connected with speech and hearing, and encourages spiritual communication. Opening the Throat Chakra is said to improve clairaudience. Gemstones that will aid the Throat Chakra include turquoise and aquamarine. {See more about chakra colors}


 THE MEANING OF BLUE AROUND THE GLOBE
In Chinese culture, colors  corresponded with the five primary elements, the directions, and the four seasons. Blue was associated with wood, east, and spring. 
Blue, blue-green, and green are sacred colors in Iran, where they symbolize paradise.
 In India, paintings of the god Krishna often depict him as having blue skin. 
In the United States, post office mailboxes are typically blue.
 In Mexico, blue is the color of mourning. In Aztec culture, blue symbolized sacrifice.
 In Greece, the color blue is believed to ward off “the evil eye.” Those who believe in this Greek superstition often wear a blue charm necklace or blue bracelet for protection.

Coffee and time

Hi Elizabeth! 

What's the time there? We are observing DST here so I am three hours ahead now. Needless to say my biological clock is not happy at all with the change. But I am going to drink some coffee. Would like some? We drink coffee all day long here. 

Well my friend, have a magical day!

Man or Hero?

My first lunchbox was pink and it had a sticker with Captain America.  He was my partner for a whole year when I started primary school. And yes, he's my favourite super hero too.

The world as one


 The beauties above were a present from Eletra and they arrived in time for my birthday. I still believe art and poetry bring people together and in a world where color skin, religion, nationality and sexual orientation separate human beings, art is a balm. Some day we will be prepared to accept and love each other as s/he is. Quoting John Lennon:


You may say
I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day
You'll join us
And the world will be as one



Thank you Eletra!
Thank you, my friend!

Crafting Blooming Howls - O'Sister

Sisterhood of Roses


O' Sister!
Come with me
and bring the candles.
The earth is damp and
the water is still.

Let's dance and chant
till you become one with
the light.
Let this light spread all
around you and into infinity.
Rejoice sister, rejoice!


O' Sister!
Your blood is my blood,
in perfect love and in perfect trust,
we must live and let live.
This heart of mine is what
I have to give.
Hold it in your hands as
our sisterhood of roses comes into
bloom.
Feel the perfume, feel the perfume.


O' Sister!
Beauty, strength and compassion
are within you.
Honor our Mother
and the perfect words.
Let's sing, make music and make
love to celebrate for here is
the wine of life.


O' Sister
Come with me,
by the powers of Wind
and The Sea,
by the might of the Moon
and the Sun
Our sisterhood of roses
is in your veins.
Our sisterhood of roses
can't be undone.

Darling Edgar




Invisible things are the only realities,
Edgar Allan Poe


I designed Edgar or I tried to but a copy is never faithful to the original and the original here is Edgar Allan Poe himself. Hope he can forgive me for that. But he knows how important he has been in my life since I was nine and watched "The Raven" starred by Vincent Price. What a magical film!Later I fell in love with his short stories. Our love affair is unforgettable and why not say eternal. After all,

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” 
Edgar Allan Poe


And I'd like to add all that we feel too. 

Have a magical mysterious day!

Saudade

Saudade is a word that doesn't exist in any other language but mine: Portuguese. There is a quote which defines pretty well what saudade means:

"Saudade is our soul saying where it wants to come back."
Rubens Alves

I don't know if it makes sense in English but I think Saudade is the most beautiful word in the world.
