Well good afternoon to all. HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY to everyone!! The day to wear green and ask for good luck. As I thought about this day, I have come up with what is it with the color green. What about the color green you ask? Well, I thought I might look at where it lies in history. Green is known to be the symbol of good luck...although, we perceive that the luckiest thing to get would be the GOLD at the end of the rainbow. It is true, that in America, our money is green and to have money is to be lucky...especially in these days.
When I look at what phraseology has presented...Green with envy? That is because on the charka green is governed by the heart....hence when you are jealous of someone...you want what your heart desires.
In the scale of vibrations...green is meant to be a quieting or calming color. It represents life and nature. Green plants and trees stand for breathing in & out - photosynthesis .
If one has a preference for green...it would be because green brings peace, rest, hope, comfort and nurturing, calmness and harmony. It can intimate that one who loves the color green had an interest in nature, plants, fellowmen, children and animals, health and healing, natural and plain life. They are people who long for a safe home and a family-life. It also means they may have a dislike of conflicts.
It is no wonder why on St. Patrick's day, everyone seems to become one big happy family.
When I think of Green, I think of lying in the grass on a warm summers day. I think of green dandelions sprouting from the green grass that produces flowers that Grandma told me not to pick because it would make me have to pee. I think of Dr. Suess and Green Eggs and Ham , but mostly, I think of Kermit and his "It isn't easy being green"....I wonder if the wicked witch ever thought that way? Gumby was green...there is green slime and Green River Soda. Green River soda was introduced to Midwestern drinkers in 1919 right here in Chicago at The Schoenhofen Edelweiss Brewing Company in the Pilsen neighborhood at 18th and Canalport. In fact there are still 2 of the original buildings that can still be found there. Green River was a big hit for decades as soda fountain syrup, trailing only Coca Cola in popularity. I remember so well having those Green River Floats at Lockwood Castle and then making them for my girls at home. It is not all that easy to find that wonderful tasting green drink these days, but on rare occasion, I find it and pick up a bunch. For some reason...it is easiest to find around St. Patty's day. Well, here's to you and the color green.
