GREEN is the balance between warm, extroverted RED, ORANGE and YELLOW, and the cool, introverted BLUE, INDIGO and VIOLET.

The colour GREEN evokes an association with plant life and the natural world, growth, calmness, peace and serenity, youth, learning, inexperience, fertility, ecology and new life.

GREEN and the CHAKRAS
GREEN is absorbed by the Heart Chakra and controls the cardiac centre and strongly influences the heart and blood pressure. It is linked to the heart, lungs, circulatory system, cardiac plexus and the complete chest area.

  1. What about green eyes? Two weeks after my Grandma passed away she visited me in a dream. We were at a lake, beautiful green trees and grass.... She had on an outfit that she owned in real life. It was light green patterns on a white background. But, I ask about green eyes because..... She always had beautiful, bright blue eyes.... But in this visit her eyes were green! She had a soft, peaceful, beautiful glow to her, she turned to me and smiled.... Those green eyes were impossible to miss! In the visit I cried out to her saying how much I miss her and how much I love her. That's when she turned to me, smiled and spoke- in her voice. The way she used to sound years ago. But it sounded even more beautiful. She said "Aww, it's okay. I'm in Heaven". Very soft, calm and beautiful in her own actual voice. Does her eyes being green in the dream and not being her actual sparkly blue mean anything? Did she decided to change her eye color and make the color green stage out by wearing that green outfit and also bring in a beautiful green setting??
    Thank you,
    Christey
