Green is the fresh emblem of well founded hopes…
May is here.
Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, energy is moving.
And Manhattan is buzzing.
People are out and about. You can feel the spirit is reviving. People are looking for new beginnings, and fresh green energy is everywhere.
I was on my way to meet a beautiful friend and colleague for lunch on the east side. I stopped off to get warmed up for a moment because it was a little brisk outside, and I wanted the sun and vitamin D to warm me up.
I sat down next to a nanny with the most beautiful baby dressed to the nines in a little heart outfit complete with matching booties, and she looked up to me with her sparkling blue eyes and I melted. I had never met this baby before, but it didn't matter. The warmth of her smile emanated everywhere.
As I was admiring Tabitha's genuine smile, another nanny said hello to the women I was sitting next to, and she was dressed all in green.
The woman commented, "OMG I love your green! It's so vibrant."
She replied, "It's my favorite color, it makes me feel so alive!"
I then chimed in and said, "It's the energy of your heart." And shared with them a little snippet of what color is all about. Green is the color of abundance, it opens you up, it allows you to receive opportunities of expansion, and it's great to eat! Also, if you add basil oil in your soap suds and clean on a new moon, it brings prosperity to your home, and smells great!
It so happens that this month, the color of Taurus is green. Grounded in earth energy. It helps us to connect to nature, outside, and allows us to grow and thrive from the heart.
It was one of those New York moments when energy and synchronicity all collided in an instant.
It was a great encounter, and all of the green in the park solidified the abundance of being open, feeling good, and allowing a beautiful connection to happen.
The day continued with a beautiful lunch, I shared a gift with my friend: a green necklace, an abundance magnet pin, and a note that read, "To abundance, to reconnecting, to friendship."
With the energy of green being heightened this month- it's the perfect time to bring plants into our home, nourish our bodies with lots of green food, experiment with basil oil, fresh basil, and get outside.
We've been so blessed to have entertainment in our homes whether it's Netflix, Zoom, or social media, but let's all take a moment to get outside, connect with individuals in person, reignite old school values, and bringing human nature into our routines again to thrive from the inside out.
We have become so accustomed to texting our friends and taking the time to find the perfect emoji to express ourselves, instead of connecting in actual time over the phone or in person to actually feel those emotions in real time.
Green is the energy bringing freshness, hope, and abundance to our lives again. Nurture it all with green.
