The Color:

Lilac is a color that is a pale shade of violet. It might also be described as light purple.

The Meaning and Symbolism:

The story of lilac, according to Greek mythology, begins with a beautiful nymph named Syringa (lilac’s botanical name). Captivated by her beauty, Pan, the god of the forests and fields, chased Syringa through the forest. Frightened by Pan’s affections, Syringa escaped him by turning herself into an aromatic bush – the flower we now refer to as lilac.

The 8th wedding anniversary flower and the state flower of New Hampshire (symbolizing the hardy character of the Granite State’s citizens), lilacs are frequently considered a harbinger of spring, with the time of their bloom signaling whether spring will be early or late. In the language of flowers, purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love, while white lilacs represent youthful innocence.

Christmas Message:

Christmas for me is an opportunity for everyone to bring out the child in us. A child who is eager to open a gift and genuinely smile to whatever the box contains. A child who stare innocently beside the christmas tree and enjoys how the light flickers. A child, who looks at other kids as their true friends and share their happiness without expecting anything in return. I hope we all have a heart of a child this Christmas, and all the days of year.This is the only way we could avoid conflict and can genuinely say, Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Personal Style Guide:

I chose a more vintage look this Christmas to go back to the days where fashion and style looks more sophisticated and regal. This is where I can celebrate my mom or Grandma’s era and thank them for the generation they have handed down on me.

A Classic Black and White Dress may be the best way to express yourself in any way. Consider it as a blank canvass where you mix other bright colors of your choice. You can have a black and white get up and shoot in some colorful accent like belts, brooche and shawl or scarf.

The White Color:

White is the color of purity. Brides wear white in many countries, because white symbolizes a virgin. White means kindness. In some cultures white is worn at funerals. White is Monday’s color. White daisies are a symbol of loyal love.

Strictly speaking, white is not a color, but the manifestation of the presence of all color – the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion. In many cultures it represents openness and truth. White has a cold quality. It can provide clarity as its energy is complete.

White has purification vibrations and can be used to clear blocks from your path.

It holds the potential to move toward every other color and this makes it a good choice for new beginnings, and development in any direction.

Put some white in your life to:

-Aids mental clarity
-Encourages us to clear clutter or obstacles
-Evokes purification of thoughts or actions
-Enables fresh beginnings

Christmas 2009 Message:

Christmas comes without ribbons, tags, packages or boxes. But rather, it comes throughout the year with sweet friendship, mended broken relationships, bonded family, hope reborn, forgiveness and peace from within.

This Christmas — values not value; presence not presents.

Personal Style Guide for Christmas:

The glamour of Christmas parties keeps most of us excited. Some would prefer the sparkles while others go for their old tacky sweater. I, on the other hand, would always settle for the classic, elegant yet comfortable style.

The Green Color:

Green is the color of nature, fertility, life. Grass green is the most restful color. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony. Green is a safe color, if you don’t know what color to use anywhere use green.

Green is favored by well balanced people. Green symbolizes the master healer and the life force. It often symbolizes money. It was believed green was healing for the eyes. Egyptians wore green eyeliner. Green eyeshades are still used. You should eat raw green foods for good health. Friday is the day of green. Green jade is a sacred stone of Asia.

Green Energy

Green contains the powerful energies of nature, growth, desire to expand or increase. Balance and a sense of order are found in the color green. Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.

Put some green in your life when you want:

a new state of balance
feel a need for change or growth
freedom to pursue new ideas
protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others

The Color Equivalent Gemstone: Peridot

A tiny island known as Zabargard (owned by Egypt) is documented as the first source of peridot, dating back as far as four thousand years. Early Crusaders who visited St. John’s Island (now called Zabargard) introduced this gem to Europe upon return from battle.

Peridot is mentioned in many ancient references as chrysolite. It is mentioned throughout the Bible, and early Christians considered it sacred. Today still, Catholic Bishops traditionally wear a ring of peridot and amethyst as a symbol of purity and morality.

The peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration. In ancient times, it was said that a dream about peridot foretold impending danger.

Healing qualities of peridot
Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. Only spiritual or clear-minded persons should use peridot. The person with too many earthly problems will not be able to understand the beauty of the Peridot. The very spiritual can wear peridot in a necklace with the stone at the base of the throat to feel its soothing effect. Used in a necklace, peridot is a protector against negative emotions.

Peridot has been known to have healing effect on the gall bladder and liver.

Sources of peridot
Peridot is a gem variety from the olivine mineral group. The bottle green color is called peridot. Yellowish green is chrysolite. Olive green is olivine. Sources of peridot include: St. John’s Island (Egypt), United States (Arizona and Hawaii), Myanmar, Burma, Australia, Norway, South Africa and Brazil.
