Teenagers face many challenges today. Natures Rainbow Mindfulness Meditations for Teens has been created as a resource Teens can draw strength and inspiration from.
Each guided meditation is based on mindful observations from the natural world.
The vision for each track is to create a space where a young person, takes time to sit and be and feel the me and experience a moment of mindful awareness of their world and the wisdom it shares.
The music for each track has its own flavour that complements and enhances the guided meditations. The music for each colour of the rainbow is based upon the resonant note of the chakras and is designed to connect the listener with their inner peace.

The Power of Colour

The Power of Colour

The Power of Colour

Have you ever wondered why when skies are turquoise you feel more harmonised and energised than when skies are grey?

Here we explore the source of colours and their role in our world.

The sun a main source of life here on earth, emits energy in the form of waves known as the electromagnetic spectrum.

The electromagnetic spectrum is huge and the percentage of it which is visible to the human eye in the form of colours is 0.0035 percent.

Here we explore the power of the visible rainbow colour spectrum to impact our wellbeing.

The human eye and brain translate light into colours using light receptors within the eye.

The surface of an object reflects some colours and absorbs all others, we see the reflected light. A typical human eye can see approximately one million colours.

White light is a combination of all colours and black is the absence of all colours.

The visible light spectrum ranges from violet at 400nm to red at 700nm wavelength.

As well as each colour having its own unique wavelength, they each have specific frequencies. The larger the frequency the smaller the wavelength.

The higher the frequency the more energy it carries. Following this red has the lowest energy and violet the highest.

On the basis everything is energy, we are beings of light energy.

Research by Bruce Taino has shown that the human body average frequency is 68Hz and a healthy body resonates between 62 to 72MHz. When the body drops below 58MHz that is when disease starts.

Bacteria, viruses, and disease each have their own low frequency that influences the human energy field.

It is said that 528HZ boosts human immunity and is an ancient healing tone that creates harmony within the mind body and soul.

528 nanometres (nm) of sunlight radiates the colour greenish yellow in the colour spectrum, which is also the colour of chlorophyll in nature that is present in the pigments of plants. Which may explain the theory of why being out in nature boosts our immune system.

Cyan the colour of ocean and skies, is a colour much used since ancient times as a healing colour. One example of its use in ancient times was by the noblest members of ancient Egyptian society who were seen to drape turquoise around their necks it is also a colour widely used in ancient architecture in Turkey and central asia.

Cyan can be traced back to a dye produced from cornflower.

It has a wavelength of 490 to 520nm and frequency of 610 to 575THz

Cyan and red are complimentary colours, interestingly when combined, they make either white, black or grey depending on the colour system used.

White, black and grey are three colours which also have unique interesting features.

White reflects all colours, therefor absorbs the least heat.

Black absorbs all colours and UV rays, absorbs heat from the body, helping to keep it cool.

Grey is an intermediate colour between black and white. It is a neutral colour an achromatic colour, meaning literally that it is a colour without colour because it can be composed of black and white.

These properties explain the popular use of these colours in clothing in hot countries. Also, the use of vivid colours in the painting of buildings, as red and blue shades perform better at blocking UV-B rays.

As can be seen from this brief look at the energy of different colours, a correlation can be drawn between colours and the personal harmony we feel.

At times we also may feel drawn to certain colours. Maybe in the choice of colour for clothes, food, home décor etc, trust your instincts as it may well be a colour your body intuitively knows it needs to help bring harmony to it.

Eating a rainbow of colours in vegetables is also a good basis for a healthy diet. Based on the theory each colour has a unique vibrational energy you may find certain vegetables provide more energy upon consumption.

Also, if you are feeling under the weather, a walk-in sunshine in mother nature will help to boost your immunity and help you to feel more energised.

Have fun researching and learning more about the properties of different colours and the potential they have on impacting your world.

Here is a diagram sharing the wavelength and frequencies of different colours for your easy referencing.

 

Loving Me Unconditionally

Loving Me Unconditionally

Travelling home on the tube yesterday from a yoga session with a small group of teenagers. My thoughts ran over the discussion I had with them which flowed on from listening to ‘Natures Rainbow Mindfulness Meditations for Teens’ track 1 Red – Rose which raised the subject of unconditional love.

Today I thought I would share aspects of the discussions and thoughts which flowed in this blog post.

After listening to the track I discussed with the group what the term unconditional love meant to them and the topic of loving oneself unconditionally. The importance of not comparing or judging, but excepting, being expressing and loving the me unconditionally.

We took a look at toddlers and discussed how toddlers naturally loves themselves unconditionally. They freely make friends and play with others without judgement of themselves or others. A toddler is not concerned with looks appearance, fashion, lifestyle, money. A toddler just is a beacon of unconditional love for themselves and others.

We discussed the importance of loving ourselves unconditionally as a toddler does before external conditioning impacts their mindset.

So how did we get programmed and move from a being of unconditional love for ourselves and others?

As I sat on the tube ride home, my thoughts shifted to my little puppy Leo, who I got this summer. Leo is the essence of unconditional love. He wants to run up and make friends with every human and dog he meets, just like a toddler.

Unfortunately, I have had to pull the reigns in and explain to him not every human or dog wishes to be his friend. A self-realisation he is also making, and in line with this he is slowly adjusting his behaviour to not running up to every human he crosses path with and to gently open and test the playing field first with other dogs he meets and would like to play with.

The observation of my curtailment of Leo’s unconditional expression of love and his own assessments of the differing reactions he receives back from his hello’s are impacting him to not be so abundant in his expressions of love.

From these observations of Leo’s development, I now have a better understanding of how unintentionally our toddler child goes from being a beacon of unconditional love for themselves and others to a teenager who has been shaped and adjusted to the world around them.

Barriers have grown in response to different impacts they experience from their external world which then impacts on their internal world. They are bombarded with advertising and media images of how they should be looking, what they should be wearing, how they should be presenting, speaking, being, feeling etc. All of which are destroying their core-essence, personal identity unconditional love for themselves.

As parents or guardians of a young person, it is not our wish to destroy a child’s unconditional love for themselves, but from the above we can see how the roots of destruction gently sprout.

From the growing statistics on self-harm, depression, anxiety and suicide we can see and hear the growing calls for help.

With this knowledge comes the opportunity to make a change to re-foster unconditional love for one selves and others.

There are many ways this can be done, the ‘Magnificent Me Magnificent You – Loving the Me App’ will be sharing a few.

But as a parent, guardian, teacher, headmaster, general practitioner etc, have a think of ways on how we can foster self-love with our young and please share your thoughts and ideas below for others to benefit from.
