70 the NEW 50.

People seem to be living longer now and looking younger.   We have had so many advances in medical treatments and there are so many vitamins and minerals available, as well as a knowledge of healthy foods.
Older people are encouraged to look after their bodies and work with things like Yoga or Tai Chi.  Every day on the tele. we can see the newest creams and treatments that take away our facial lines etc.
The saying is that seventy is the new fifty.   People are now comfortable with activities that were not considered appropriate for older people years ago.   People are being encouraged to join places such as the Third Age where they can expand their mind and learn new things  as well as giving their own knowledge to others.
Where is this all going?   We are starting to use the second level of the Aura that surrounds us.   The first layer relates to the colour Red, and that connects to all the seven Chakras we know about.   All of these Chakras have 'rules' that we are taught to live up to.  The Red/Root Chakra is connected with our need to  'fit in' with society.   We feel that we 'must' fit in with our family, friends and social expectations.  We even feel that we must have an 'acceptable' body shape to be accepted.   When we feel we cannot live up to these expectations we often have problems in our lower body and often put on a lot of weight.
The second Orange/Sacral  Chakra is connected with our need  to be accepted in relationships.   When this does not happen we often develop problems in the area containing the sexual organs.
The third Yellow/Solar Plexus Chakra is connected to our need to express our own will power.   When we are stopped from expressing our own will power we can get rashes or digestive problems.
The fourth Green/Heart Chakra is connected to how we give and receive love.  When we do not get the love we want we can have heart or lung problems.
The fifth Blue/Throat Chakra is connected with our self expression (talking, singing, writing etc.)  If we are stopped (or are not allowed} to express ourselves we develop tight throat, mouth, shoulders etc.
The sixth Indigo/Third Eye Chakra is connected with accepting our own intuition.  If we do not do this (or are not allowed to) we can suffer from eye problems or headaches.
The seventh Violet/Crown Chakra is our connection with the messages that our Guides and Angels send us.  If we do not accept these messages or ignore them we can have Migrane headaches or even worse, mental problems.

Now that we are starting to connect with the Second /Orange layer of the Aura  (Orange being the colour of  Relationships) there are Chakras being seen between our usual ones.  Between Red and Orange there is a Red/Orange one (bringing more strength into relationships.)
Between the Orange and Yellow Chakra there is a Gold one (placed in front of the belly button) that we are using to connect back to our source.
Between the Yellow and Green Chakra there is a Lime Green one ( a new flame burning in the chest indicating getting ready for new growth)
Between the Green and Blue Chakras there is a Turquoise one (in front of the Thymus)  It is about speaking from the heart. This was the first of the New Chakras that was noticed.   It is most important as it is to do with the NEW energy of speaking and expressing yourself from the heart.   Rather than having to follow the rules of the Red energy.
Between the Blue and Violet  Chakras there is a Magenta  one.  It is placed beside the ear in order that we start to 'listen' and 'accept' the views and opinions of others.  It is also connected with our increasing ability to look into the future.

With this new energy and technology available to us we should probably live WELL to an older age.

As the population grows because there will be so many of us, hopefully science can find ways to make all the huge unused places of the earth productive.    When the earth gets totally filled up I hope by then scientists will have found a way to take us to another planet!

What is LOVE?

LOVE...the most mis-used word in the English language!
Why is it that something that should be so beautiful and comforting is often the source of so much pain and distress?  In movies or books the heroine is often crying over 'love' or the hero is smoking and drinking and breaking down because of his problems with 'love'.   The happy, joyous beginning of any movie or book is usually about one quarter of the time.  The rest is spent in stress until the last few minutes when they are happy once again!     Unfortunately movies and books have created the idea that if someone 'loves' you they must only see and adore you.    How many movies do you see where the heroine or hero is broken hearted because 'their' loved one has spent some time with, or even 'looked' at another person?
 So many people use this word like a sword or hammer.  "If you love me you will do this" or " but I love you so you should do things my way"
If you really love someone you accept them for who they are and do not try to change them.  This will allow them to love you as you are and you can work through the changes that life brings together. .
When I was studying Colour Therapy my teacher, who was a Russian Colour Psychologist told us that in France they have several different words for the different ways you can use the word love.   In the English language we have only one so the word is used for many different situations.   The way we might use it is for  'love of God' or 'sexual love' or 'love of a parent for their children'.  'Love of nature' can cause a person to become a vegetarian.  Love of work or power can cause a person to lose the softness and caring of love and become hard or ruthless (the word ruth means love).
Our Colour Therapy teacher also said that each different way of expressing love has its own colour!   Sexual love is seen as Bright Red, and when it wants to overpower the other person it is seen as Dark Red.   Love of God is seen as Violet or Gold.    Love of sports, yellow.   Love of chocolate, Purple, love of sleeping in Strong Pink, love of child or family Light Pink.    If you allow yourself to be 'used' or 'pushed around' by one who says they love you the colour would be 'kick me Pink'  This is the palest of Pinks and is seen on very vulnerable people who accept punishment or very young babies who need protection as they are so vulnerable.
Every Astrological Sign has their own way of loving.   Aries need to take charge and protect those they love. Taurus, being a very physical/sensual sign (ruled by Venus) needs comfort and closeness and loyalty from those they love.   Gemini is a light/communicating sign.  They need someone who they can talk to and have fun.   Cancer (the sign of nurturing) loves by mothering their partner.  Leo, (royalty) needs to show love in a very dramatic way and expects admiration from those they love.   Virgo (the sign of work and service) will want to make sure his/her partner or family are looked after, kept safe (and clean).  Libra (this is the MOST romantic sign.  Libra's need a partner to balance their life (sign of the scales) they are also ruled by Venus and have a great need to have a 'nice' life and have everyone they love have a 'nice' life too.  Scorpio is considered the most sexual of the signs.  This is because of their need for intimacy and closeness with those they love.  Capricorn loves to do the best they can in any situation.  For those they love they will try to provide for them a beautiful home or a beautiful bunch of flowers if that is all they can afford.    Aquarians love 'the world'.  The person they love might not understand how much they do love them as they usually spend most of their time with friends or humanitarian issues (they do show their love for friends and humanitarian issues)   Pisces. (the softest sign/ the talking sign of the water signs)  Pisces (the sign of the two fishes tied together and both trying to swim in different directions)  Pisces has a great imagination and great emotional needs.   Pisces people spend so much time trying to sort out their lover/partner's problems that they often do not look at their own needs.

I find that belonging to the Spiritualist Church provides me with all the love I can take.  It does not matter what Astrological sign a member is, you can be sure to get a hug and a feeling of being loved.
Realising that we are all spiritual souls here to learn our current lessons is a very comfortable way to live.  We do not have to 'push' others (family or friends) as we know that they too are on their journeys and have their own needs and loves.
Because of this we can Love God, love the Universal Intelligence ,Love Family, Love friends and possibly Love a lover!!
