Strip off the fake Confidence

Girls love their make-up , boys love their cars and guess what happens if you take them away. If you are still wondering, ask your best friend to meet you in the cafeteria without her make-up on and your boyfriend to use public transportation to come over there too. Pretty much you expect two upcoming situations. On the first one, they find a terrible excuse not to show up. On the second one, they do show up but their confidence is under zero. It’s not bad to own a car or having beautiful clothes. The bad thing is to depend on them so as to boost your self esteem. Take away the expensive houses from the celebrities and their status is harmed. This goes along with their confidence. When we live in a society that nurtures us with these ethics and when we are stuck in a system in where you have to be successful so as to be “important”, “special”, “unique”, it’s when you know that you have to fight back. Anything materialistic shouldn’t be above anything spiritual or personal growth. Though if you don’t do it, you feel you will get kicked out of the system.

This pretty much means that your friends will push you away, your parents will consider you a failure and you will feel the need to leave your town or even country. It has happened to everyone but how do you act? Lower your head and stare at the ground? Shrug and move along? Sigh deeply and have the worst thoughts about yourself? This means that you surrender, you let the system win. The system that you hate so much, that even lead you to take antidepressants cos you are not good enough. Draw a big line and don’t let anyone cross it. It’s your personal boundaries, it’s the space that you need to be yourself. You need to apologize to no one for who you are. Meditate, join a yoga class or martial arts, write daily affirmations, all these will lead to your confidence boost. This is what you want. This is what you need; Inner peace and trust yourself!

I “heart” you green – Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day and a big doze of green and no red at all this year! If you are wondering why you should avoid red, a couple realizations may persuade you. Red is the color of the root chakra that it’s connected to fear, grounding, changes, detachment, fragility and so on. So instead of celebrating love this day, you are afraid that your boyfriend may break up with you, that he won’t get the right gift for you and if you are alone, you feel so fragile and you feel do detached from everyone out there who has a relationship. Apart from that, red makes the heart racing faster by making you feel more stressed. Today just try to incorporate green into whatever you do. Green is the color of the heart chakra, bringing energies of love, understanding and friendship.

When you go out with your date, focus on the earth colors such as brown, green, grey or ivory. You will notice that these colors will create a different atmosphere and you will radiate it to your surroundings. Your boyfriend will feel the difference, you will notice that he will be more open to talk about things he never said before. Apart from that, buy him an Eco-friendly gift that will be different that ones you usually buy every year. Have a wonderful time and if you are single this day, just stay away from anything that will create unnecessary drama or tears. Just be yourself and enjoy!

One piece of Truth and one piece of Love

Valentine’s day, you love it or hate it but still you are being affected every year. Today wear your blue, activate your throat chakra and bring some truth about the love in your life. As the heart and throat chakra are  next to each other, they are always affected by each others energies by many ways. Though many times consciously we all try to separate them cos the truth may hurt not only us but the others around us. So now honestly ask yourself what loves means to you. Is it all the fancy things in a relationship, is it a simple hug or just being around friends till you find the right guy for you? Or there are not right guys but only relationships we can work with people we love? Let all the society standards out of your thoughts and focus on your heart and throat, making sure that only truth comes out. If you notice emotional blockages manifesting into physical pain, such as heart pain or throat hurting, then you know that you are on the right path. Don’t stop and keep releasing everything, I’m sure you have heard how people say that truth sets you free. This is actually so true.

Make sure that the two chakras keep working together and if your heart is ready to retreat, connect them back. Many times we keep secrets in our heart that we are not even ready to admit it to ourselves. Secrets means guilt and guilt means nonacceptance. If you don’t accept your emotions, how do you except the other people to do so? There is that guy and you keep thinking about him 24/7, you know that after all this time what you feel is love, you spend so much time together, you are so close and so on. You will never tell him but instead you want him to talk to you. Then you realize that you are both locked in a friend-zone. If you don’t want to “suffer” anymore by all these thoughts, open your throat chakra, open your heart and be truthful. What you have to lose in the end? You have lost already yourself in this situation!

 

Black and white – Pop the Balance bubble

One of the common tips for interview is the black and white outfit, since it makes you look professional. Professional in other words means balanced, your employer will get these vibes from you and if your questions are the expected ones, you have a place in their company. So how this balance works with the colors? The black absorbs the energies of the environment and people while white is reflecting everything. If you want an easy example on how the color black works, you can find it here and for white use the opposite example. Chic and classy is being defined again by the combination of these two colors, so simple and so effective at the same time. What happens though when you want to enhance creative energies coming out of this balance? By adding color to this combination through make up or accessories.

Depending on the color, the energies from your chakras are popping out giving a specific impression. Here you can find all the positive traits of the chakras and how the colors work. For example if you wear black and white outfit for an interview, avoid to wear orange, you will give them the impression that you are emotional, so this will get interpreted that in the future you may turn to be a drama queen. If you add red though, make sure that it’s not too much – avoid red lipstick cos it shows aggressiveness through your speech – and wear a red ring which will show them that you are grounded, you know what you want and that they can count on you. Again though, it depends the nature of the job, if you are going to work on a store as a sale assistant, make sure that on the first interview, you wear yellow. It shows your willingness to work and being energetic the whole day. One last but not least to keep in mind is to know your strength and weaknesses and empower them with the specific color!
