What does colour means?

What does it mean? No Comments »

i have scanned my outlook early today and found a folder named “Something Good”.. i have been working with Link2Support for almost 5 years and I have collected emails from friends which i would like to share with you..

Meaning of the Color Blue 

Blue is the overwhelming “favorite color.” Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The color of sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives. As the collective color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming; however not all blues are serene and sedate. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging color that expresses exhilaration. Some shades or the overuse of blue may come across as cold or uncaring. Blue is the least “gender specific” color, having equal appeal to both men and women.

How the color blue effects us physically and mentally
* Calming and sedate
* Cooling
* Aids intuition

Meaning of the Color Green 

Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye and is second only to blue as a favorite color. Green is the pervasive color in the natural world that is an ideal backdrop in interior design because we are so used to seeing it everywhere. The natural greens, from forest to lime, are seen as tranquil and refreshing, with a natural balance of cool and warm (blue and yellow) undertones. Green is considered the color of peace and ecology. However, there is an “institutional” side to green, associated with illness or Government-issued that conjure up negative emotions as do the “slimy” or bilious greens.

How the color green effects us physically and mentally
* Soothing
* Relaxing mentally as well as physically
* Helps alleviate depression, nervousness and anxiety
* Offers a sense of renewal, self-control and harmony

Meaning of the Color Yellow 

Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance from surrounding colors and instill optimism and energy as well as spark creative thoughts.

How the color yellow effects us mentally and physically
* Mentally stimulating
* Stimulates the nervous system
* Activates memory
* Encourages communication

Meaning of the Color Orange 

Orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange and true orange generally elicits a stronger “love it” or “hate it” response than other colors. Fun and flamboyant orange radiates warmth and energy. Interestingly, some of the tones of orange such as terra cotta, peach or rust have very broad appeal.

How the color orange effects us mentally and physically
* Stimulates activity
* Stimulates appetite
* Encourages socialization

Meaning of the Color Red

Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant red is inherently exciting and the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived. Red draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element.

How the color red effects us mentally and physically
* Increases enthusiasm
* Stimulates energy
* Encourages action and confidence
* A sense of protection from fears and anxiety

Meaning of the Color Purple 
Purple embodies the balance of red simulation and blue calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone. A sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls.
 

How the color purple effects us mentally and physically
* Uplifting
* Calming to mind and nerves
* Offers a sense of spirituality
* Encourages creativity

 

 

 Meaning of the Color Brown  

Brown says stability, reliability, and approachability. It is the color of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic.

How the color brown effects us physically and mentally
* Feeling of wholesomeness
* Stability
* Connection with the earth
                                * Offers a sense orderliness

Meaning of the Color White 

White projects purity, cleanliness, and neutrality. Doctors don white coats, brides traditionally were white gowns and a white picket fence surrounds a safe and happy home.

How the color white effects us mentally and physically
* aids mental clarity
* encourages us to clear clutter or obstacles
                                * evokes purification of thoughts or actions
                                * enables fresh beginnings

Meaning of the Color Gray

Gray is timeless, practical, and solid. A longstanding favorite suit color, gray can mix well with any color. Although well like and often worn, people rarely name gray as a favorite color possibly because Gray also is associated with loss or depression.

How the color black effects us physically and mentally
* unsettling
                             * expectant

Meaning of the Color Black

Black is authoritative and powerful; because black can evoke strong emotions too much can be overwhelming. A classic color for clothing possibly because it makes the wearer appear thinner and more sophisticated.

How the color black effects us physically and mentally
* feeling inconspicious
* a restful emptiness
                                                   * mysterious evoking a sense of potential and possibility.

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

What Do Angels Look Like?

Angels around us 7 Comments »

© 1990, Veronica M. Hay

Like the little old lady who returned your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver who told you that
your eyes light up the world, when you smile.
Like the small child who showed you
the wonder in simple things.

Like the poor man who offered
to share his lunch with you.
Like the rich man who showed you it
really is all possible, if only you believe.

Like the stranger who just happened to come along,
when you had lost your way.
Like the friend who touched your heart,
when you didn’t think you had one left to touch.

Angels come in all sizes and shapes,
All ages and skin types.
Some with freckles, some with dimples,
some with wrinkles, some without.

They come disguised as friends, enemies,
teachers, students, lovers and fools.
They don’t take life too seriously,
They travel light.
They leave no forwarding address,
They ask for nothing in return.

They wear sneakers with gossamer wings,
They get a deal on dry cleaning.
They are hard to find when your eyes are closed, But
They are everywhere you look when you choose to see.

 

let me sing the Carpenters..

songs of my life 2 Comments »

The Carpenters, Karen and Richard(who recently visited the country and did series of concerts, I think..) are my family’s all time favorite singers..Mama loves the Carpenters so much that we, her children learned to appreciate their music as well.. Who would forget these lines…day after day i must face the world of  strangers… i’m on the top of the world looking.. why do birds suddenly appears.. there’s a kind of hush… you are the one who makes me happy and a lot more..

grabbed from www.richardandkarencarpenter.com

Songs of love which are very relaxing and soothing. Who would not love their songs and sing them..It was sad thing that Karen died of some bad health conditions. Nevertheless, their music continues to echo as the next century unfolds..

 YOU

You are the one who makes me happy
When everything else turns to grey
Yours is the voice that wakes me mornings
And sends me out into the day

You are the crowd that sits quiet
Listening to me
And all the mad sense I make
You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How can anyone mean more to me
Than you

Sorry if sometimes I look past you
There’s no one beyond your eyes
Inside my head the wheels are turning
Hey, sometimes I’m not so wise

You are my heart,
and my soul, my inspiration
Just like the old love song goes
You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How can anyone mean more to me
Than you

(You are my heart and my soul, my inspiration)
Just like the old love song goes
You are one of the few things worth remembering
And since it’s all true
How can anyone mean more to me
Than you

 

THERE’S A KIND OF HUSH

There’s a kind of hush
all over the world tonight
All over the world
you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean

Just the two of us
and nobody else in sight
There’s nobody else and I’m feeling good
Just holding you tight

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn’t a dream

The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear I love you
For ever and ever

 

YESTERDAY ONCE MORE

When I was young
I’d listen to the radio
Waitin’ for my favorite songs When they played I’d sing along
It made me smile.

Those were such happy times
And not so long ago
How I wondered where they’d gone
But they’re back again
Just like a long lost friend
All the songs I loved so well.
 

Every Sha-la-la-la
Every Wo-o-wo-o
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they’re startin’ to sing’s
So fine.

When they get to the part
Where he’s breakin’ her heart
It can really make me cry
Just like before
It’s yesterday once more.

Lookin’ back on how it was
In years gone by
And the good times that I had
Makes today seem rather sad
So much has changed.

It was songs of love that
I would sing to then
And I’d memorize each word
Those old melodies
Still sound so good to me
As they melt the years away.

Every Sha-la-la-la
Every Wo-o-wo-o
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they’re startin’ to sing’s
So fine.

All my best memories
Come back clearly to me
Some can even make me cry.
Just like before
It’s yesterday once more.

 

I WON’T LAST THE DAY WITHOUT YOU

Day after day I must face a world of strangers
Where I don’t belong, I’m not that strong
It’s nice to know that there’s someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you’re always there

When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be without

a friendly face, A lonely place
It’s nice to know that you’ll be there if I need you

And you’ll always smile, it’s all worthwhile

When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you
 

Touch me and I end up singing
Troubles seem to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you’re bringing
I can’t really lose when you’re near

 

If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They’re not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know that I could learn to live

Without the rest, I found the best

When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give

But I won’t last a day without you

When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you

 

 

WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN

We’ve only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way.
We’ve just begun.

Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run.
And yes, We’ve just begun.

Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over just the two of us,
Working together day to day
Together.

And when the evening comes we smile,
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow,
And yes, We’ve just begun.

 

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE 

What the world needs now is love sweet love,
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
no not just for some but for everyone.

Lord we don’t need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb,
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross
Enough to last until the end of time

 

What the world needs now is love sweet love,
it’s the only thing that theres just too little of,
what the world needs now is love sweet love,
no not just for some but for everyone

Lord, we dont need another meadow,
there are corn fields and wheat fields enough to grow,
there are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine,
oh listen Lord, if you want to know

What the world needs now is love sweet love,
its the only thing that theres just too little of.
what the world needs now is love sweet love,
no not just for some, oh but just for every every everyone.

what the world (whoa whoa) needs now,
is love (is love) sweet love
what the world ( oh oh) needs now
is love (is love) sweet love
what the world (whoa whoa) needs now
is love (is love) sweet love

these are only some of the Carpenters’ great songs..songs to live by and continually inspiring us to go on with our life whatever difficulties we may have.. like what the song We’ve Only Just Begun says, so much of life ahead, we’ll find a place where there’s room to grow… there’s always a room for us to grow.. Growing in a sense that we learn to love more and care more for others.. we certainly know that what the world needs now is love..

am I singing the Carpenters, now?

…guardian angel

Angels around us 1 Comment »

“Angel of God my guardian dear,

 to whom God’s love commits me here..

Ever this day be at my side,

to light and guide, to rule and guard. Amen”.

 

Does this prayer rings a bell to your ear? Well, as far as I can remember this was the first prayer I learned. This was the same prayer I taught to my daughter, Antoinette. As a Catholic, we believe in this spirits, so called Angels who existed even before the so-called, Creation..

 

Wikipedia defines angels a supernatural being found in many religions. Although the nature of angels and the tasks given to them vary from tradition to tradition, in Christianity, Judaism and Islam, they typically act as messengers from God. Other roles in religious traditions include acting as warrior or guard; the concept of a “guardian angel” is popular in modern Western culture. Angels are usually viewed as emanations of a supreme divine being, sent to do the tasks of that being.. 

M-W defines angel as a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence; an attendant spirit or guardian3: a usually white-robed winged figure of human form in fine art..

 Every dictionary and I guess, every person has his or her own definition of what an angel or a guardian angel is..

I believe that guardian angels are sent by God to protect His beloved people.. in my own definition and beliefs, they are spirits who are always with us wherever we may be..I have read different testimonials about Angel encounters.. I have my own experience to share as well.. Encounters with our guardian angel can be as simple as telling them to wake you up at this time..making them an alarm clock? Not really, just making them feel that they’re important to you and you count on them..  

 

My first accountable encounter with my guardian angel was in Quezon, about 15 years ago.. I took a bath in my aunt’s “batalan” (bathroom), which was separated from the main house. It was about 6pm. I was carrying a deeper with my laundry with my right hand  and a the pale with the my left hand, when my ring slipped off my finger. The ring was a graduation gift of my aunt for me. I can’t find any candle in the house, there was electric light. The ring was so important to me. I tried to look for it but I really can’t find it. To my despair, I uttered, “my dear guardian angel help me find the ring.” When I turned around, I found the ring! I don’t think that it was just a coincidence but it was more on help from these heavenly spirits..

 

Occasionally, my angels wake me up every time I asked them to. It does happen and they never fail..

I have newspaper clippings  of angel encounters but I need to dig into my closet full of papers , which I have collected over the years. 

Angels sometimes appear to in a different form, rather than in the form we expected them to.. They don’t always appear in a male form with wings.. Sometimes, they appear in a form that you least expected them to.  

What is important is that we acknowledge their presence. That they’re sent by the Most High to guard and to guide us. Simple appreciation of their existence please them. But most of all, doing good really make their day complete.. ?
 
 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

..singing david cook’s The Time of my Life

lyric sheet 1 Comment »

 

…as requested by my dear friend bonnie, here’s the lyrics of The Time of my Life by David Cook..

THE TIME OF MY LIFE

I’ve been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something
I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn’t see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I’m coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin’ my world start to turn

And I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

Holding onto things that vanished
Into the air
Left me in pieces
But now I’m rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

So I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I’m out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I’m keeping my feet on the ground
My arms open wide
My face to the sun

I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
This is the time
This is the time of my life.
This is the time of my life

Prayer To Saint Anthony

All About Faith No Comments »

(May be said to help you find a lost article)

St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (name it) which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good which is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

Little Antoinette No Comments »

… I named my little girl, Antoinette in honor of St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of missing objects..

… when I was I think, 6-7 months pregnant, I lost my cat whom I cared for since it was a kitten, it’s name is Chaka.. Chaka has been with me since 2003.. he’s even older than my own daughter!

…almost every day I, my mom and my sisters looked for him.. we searched every nearby “esquinita” ..even at night, although it was dangerous for a pregnant woman, my mom accompanied me to look for him..he was gone for more than a week..

…one day, while I’m in the office, I came across with a website, www.overcomproblems.com, I found St. Anthony de Padua’s novena for missing articles.. I uttered the novena and three days after, my cat was home…

..another incident was, when I and my fiancé went to SM Cubao to buy some stuff for him and the baby, I lost my wallet.. my important IDs like SSS, Philhealth, HMO and ATM card were in it.. we didn’t know how we lost it.. we reported it to the Security Officers of SM and they told us that all the lost and found items are documented.. they told me to call the following day to check if my wallet has been found…

…I knew that the money will never be with it anymore.. what was important to me was to have the wallet back for my IDs were there and I need those specially when I give birth..

…I then uttered the prayer of St. Anthony de Padua.. Alas! Three days later, somebody contacted my sister and told her that my wallet was found in his taxi. As expected, the money was not there but my IDs and ATM were retrieved..

Ylea, came from her father’s name.. her daddy’s name is Leonard… he wanted the name lea to be in our daughter’s name.. to make it unique, he added Y to lea and so it became, Ylea..

Jesuita, was also given by her father…why? I don’t know..he said he got that name from the Bible… and so our little princess was named Antoinette Ylea Jesuita

 

singing the motherhood in me..

…I gave birth to a healthy baby girl on October 28, 2005..at the age of 24, I thought that was too early to have a baby, for having a baby takes a big responsibility as well..

…at around 4AM of that day, I went to the john to pee..I thought it was just call of nature.. I never realized that later that day I’m about to be a mother..

..my mom told me that it was my already the so called “water bag”.. I woke up my fiancé and told him that it’s time to go to the hospital.. being an tech support in me, I helped my neighbor to fix her printer before going to the hospital..

…I wasn’t nervous though.. while me and my honey were on our way to the hospital, I was just laughing and talking.. I remembered him being nervous than me.. Well, the good Lord and Mama Mary, my guardian angel, the prayers of my family, the prayers of my patront saints made me strong and relax during that day..

…often, people would say that when a woman is giving birth, her life is at stake as well.. true though.. and this is not to scare you.. true because, the process of giving birth, the labor pain.. the blood that you’re about to lose..everything.. that’s why, I know a lot of prayers do work..

…Labor pains? Oh my! I can’t explain how painful it was! I was at the labor room and I was shouting at the nurses.. I remembered asking them, “Akala ko ba painless!”… Hehehe!!! the normal delivery was painless for I had general anesthesia.. but the labor pain was not! I had my labor for almost 10 hours!

… at around 5:55 PM of October 28. 2005 I gave birth to a very loveable baby, Antoinette Ylea Jesuita Amandy-Labrador.. she’s 6.2 Lbs.. her looks are more of his father…

… the first time I saw her from the delivery room, I thought I saw her with almond shape head.. and I told myself, why does her head look like that… well, maybe that was a side effect of anesthesia… hehehe!!!

…when I saw my mom after I gave birth, I cried.. I don’t know… maybe because, I had experienced the same pain she had gone through when she gave birth to me.. and I remembered all my wrong doings.. that threatens me?!? Not really..

Once in a Lifetime (gregorian)

Cuando anochezca ( When the night falls )
Te esperare ( I will wait for you )
Quiero volverte loco esta noche ( I want to drive you crazy tonight )
Con La luna llena ( With the full moon )
Te esperare ( I will wait for you )
Hoy moriras entre mis brazos ( Today you will die in my arms )
Nunca sonaste algo igual ( You never dreamed about something like this )

When you’re near me, I close my eyes,
I want to feel you by my side
When you kiss me, I close my eyes,
I want you by my side

When I realize there’s no telling lies,
Then I know it once in a lifetime
Making love to you, every time it’s new,
You know you’re my once in a lifetime

Todo tu cuerpo temblara ( All your body will tremble )
Pero esta vez, es realidad ( But this time it will be real )
Aunque el tiempo pase ( Though time passes by )
Nunca, nunca lo olividaras ( You will never,never forget it )
Sera ( It will be )
Solo una vez en tu vida ( Only once in your lifetime )

When you touch me, I burn inside,
Colder chills run down my spine
When you take me, it’s hot in love,
- Can’t get enough!

When I realize there’s no telling lies,
Then I know that once in a lifetime
Making love to you, every time it’s new,
You know you’re my once in a lifetime

Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime

Giving all I’ve got, I’m your love-me-not,
You’re my lover, once in a lifetime
Taking care of you, every time it’s new,
You know you’re my once in a lifetime

(When you’re by my side and I want you hot)
(When I close my eyes then i touch the skies)
(When I realise there’s no telling lies)
(Making love to you Everytime it’s new)

When you’re near me,cant get enough
Once in a lifetime

Love Makes no Promises  (candi) 

There was a moment when i look in your eyes
I saw heaven and a place to die
Like no other guy you came to me
With the gift of love to set me free
Funny how the summer tend to fall
But now I feel the wind just chilled
Funny how the beauty of it all
As slipped away and fall away and got away

Chorus
Cause love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’m letting go of you
Love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’m letting go of you
And if you never, never, never been in love
It makes no promises
It makes no promises

Another day is dawning
On a cold and winding morning dawn
And on this lonely morning
I’m looking for you
Are you coming back home ?

Ooh, but the summer tend to fall
I feel the wind just chilled
And how the beauty of it all
As slipped away and fall away and got away

Chorus
It makes no promises
Love makes no promise

Cause love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’ letting go of you
Love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’m letting go of you
Love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’m letting go of you
Love makes no promises
There’s nothing I can do
I’m letting go of you
And if you never, never, never been in love
It makes no promises
It makes no promises
It makes no promises
Love makes no promises
Oooh – ooh
Makes no promises
No promises
Promises More Love Makes no Promises
