According to the Oxford Dictionary – A Miracle is….
An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.
Everyday we hear people referring to miracles. People being healed at Lourdes, historical stories from the bible about Jesus healing the blind and resurrecting the dead. But do miracles actually happen? Or are they simply coincidence?
In Buddhism we believe everything has a root cause, in order for it to exist. For example; nothing whether material, phenomena or living, can happen independently of other factors. So looking at miracles from this viewpoint, just because the occurrence isn’t explicable at this moment through natural or scientific law, doesn’t mean it’s a miracle and there’s no logical explanation discoverable through further research. If miracles do exist on the other hand, why don’t they exist in the form of everyone having enough to eat, or being given clean disease free water? Just a thought.
so…. What’s your take on Miracles? Can the dead be raised or the power of prayer heal all sickness?

Colour is a really significant part of our lives but it lives welcome to day 12 of our 17 days in colour. I really hope you’re enjoying the blog, and finding my posts beneficial. Colour is a really significant part of our lives, but it goes much deeper than that. Colour has a huge impact both positively and negatively on our mental, physical & spiritual well-being. Throughout the blog we’ve explored a range of colours all with their own powerful healing properties and now let’s explore the earthy colour – Brown
Brown is the colour of grounding, earthiness and all things material. This colour is represented by the elements of Earth and is excellent if you’re pondering on decisions or if you’re trying to find some resolve when changes are happening. Wearing the colour brown in such situations can bring instant clarity and relief from the anxiety created. Brown also represents stability, alongside conservation, protection of household, family and pets, healing animals & finding lost objects. For anyone trying to make relationships solid, to increase decisiveness and concentration or wanting help in a financial crisis brown is such a powerful colour to wear.
People who have a tendency for attraction towards the colour brown, or practical and logical thinkers, with a preference for natural, tribal and primitive things, solidity and simplicity. Brown can be warm and cosy but also depressing but it’s guaranteed to keep you firmly grounded. Brown is associated with the Root Chakra. People who prefer the colour brown prefer the comforts and nature of life rather than the material and they love more than anything the outdoors – really hating the prospect of being stuck in one place for too long unless it’s stimulating.
Welcome to day 10 of our 17 days in colour. We’ve probably all heard the phrase ‘looking at the world through rose tinted glasses?’ Well, this is often so very true about people who favour our next colour PINK. But who said there was anything wrong with that?
12931901 – the heart chakra
The colour pink is such a beautiful aura to have around you. Pink is very well known for its healing properties around grief and sadness. It’s particularly powerful for people struggling with the ageing process, or women going through the menopause. If you fall into one of these categories, or if you’re struggling with the idea of ageing then pink is the perfect colour for you to have around or to wear. Pink is very powerful in bringing about a feeling of vitality & youthfulness, and balancing emotions and feelings. Although the colour is different, pink is actually associated with the heart Chakra because of its influence on the emotions. The magickal benefits of pink, are its amazing ability to create softness and tenderness, romance, caring, nurturing, for children, youth, peace, friendship, femininity, emotional love, emotional healing. If pink is your colour, you’re most definitely a dreamer but only of achievable things.
You become deeply affected by the injustices of the world, and can’t understand how people don’t seem to be able to care for each other. Being of such a gentle nature, means these things affect you emotionally mentally and spiritually. If pink is your favourite colour, it’s absolutely imperative that you take the time for quiet meditation or relaxation because you really do get affected by your environment. In fact, it’s fair to say that pink people are the strongest of empaths in the world. You pick up other peoples energies either positive or negative almost like a magnet so it’s important you keep yourself cleansed at all times.
As we enter day 8 of our amazing journey of 17 Days IN COLOUR, we enter the mystical world of the colour WHITE.
White is the perfect colour for absolute balance and harmony. It is the color of the awakened Spirit; the light of perfection; the light of the Cosmic Consciousness,the Divine Light. We often speak about protecting ourselves with a veil of white light, or surrounding others with white light. This is because the colour White symbolises purity, raising the consciousness in all of us.
If we or others are sick, directing white into to a part of the body that needs healing is one of the fastest ways to bring about restoration of health. The magickal benefits of White: Purification and cleaning on all levels, contact with higher self and spiritual helpers, (inner) peace, aura-healing, truth seeking, consecration, spiritual enlightenment, protection against negativity by raising your vibration, breaking curses, exorcism, meditation, divination, inspiration, clairvoyance, invoking spirits White can be a replacement for any other color your magick requires. If white is your favourite colour, you are most definitely the person to come to in a crisis but you’re probably less likely to see out help. You are so in tune with nature, you have a beautiful way of recharging your own batteries in a spiritual way.
People who prefer the colour white, also have the wonderful quality of childlike playfulness and innocence but at the same time need to be cautious of being taken for granted. People who prefer the colour white, tend to be quite happy living in their own little healing space. The crown chakra is most commonly represented with the color white, although it can also be depicted as deep purple. The auric color of crown chakra energy can also be seen as gold, white, or clear light.

Choosing the colour blue for surroundings or when choosing clothes is guaranteed to induce feelings of tranquility. In fact, blue is fantastic for any kind of disease or suffering, but it’s particularly powerful in any elements associated with speech, the voice box or the larynx. This is why anyone in the music/singing profession should try to wear blue accessories as much as possible.
Blue links with and stimulates the throat chakra. The throat chakra is also known as the “power center” and “the greatest center in the body” because it is the primary center of expression and communication. Magikal Benefits: Blue is governed by the elements water and air. Being surrounded by BLUE attracts deities of the sea, truth and wisdom. Peace and tranquility, calmness, truth, wisdom, justice, counsel, guidance, understanding, patience, loyalty and honor, sincerity, devotion, healing, femininity, prophetic dreams, protection during sleep, astral projection all come from this amazingly powerful colour.

You’re a creative type but because of this, peace & rest are paramount in order for you to replenish lost energies. People attracted to this wonderful colour, hate being crowded and really value personal space. For this reason they can be mistaken as anti-social but one thing’s for certain… You’re a loyal friend to have.
