Thanks to each of YOU who are both my friend and part of my family. My gift for each of you this week is a variety-pack of LIFESAVERS. They are representative of US (all who are in our family) and how we are present for each other when ever any of us needs help. Personally, I have felt so supported by you all in my major decision to go back to school. Please enjoy your individual variety-pack of Lifesavers. When you take one to enjoy its flavor, it is also your opportunity to take a quiet moment to consider the wonderful qualities of that particular family member.
KIRK is the RED Lifesaver, which is not only his favorite color but also the color of the first chakra, representing connection to family in a loving and grounded way. In many ways, Kirk you have been a glue for our family because of the timing of your arrival. Each of us has cared for you and loved you in a profound and personal way. Red is also vibrant and symbolic of heartfelt love. Always remember – You ARE love and you are LOVED!
JESSICA is the YELLOW Lifesaver, which reminds me of sunshine, warmth and sunflowers. Yellow is the third chakra color, which houses our power center. Jessica you have blossomed into your power as a young woman in a beautiful manner. You carry for our family a sunny disposition, laughter and are a natural connector for us all. Thank you sweetie!
TRAVIS is the GREEN Lifesaver, which is the color of the fourth chakra. It represents healing, forgiveness and compassion for others. It is held in the heart, which is the center of all the chakras, and you are the center child, which is a challenging place sometimes. Travis, you have always been a sensitive young man who has kindness and acceptance for others. You have also been an example of being your own person and having a heart of integrity. I thank you for the love that you show so freely.
LINDIE is the ORANGE Lifesaver, which is the energetic color of the second chakra. This is where our passion and creativity is housed. It also represents our yearnings and our enthusiasm for life, love and the chi energy. You my sweet have all these wondrous attributes. Thank you for your example of courage to live both playfully and with zest. Your laughter helps me to remember more of me.
CHAD is the PINEAPPLE Lifesaver, which reminds me that pineapples grow in warm foreign lands (far away), and that either you have been to that foreign land, or that you will probably be there one day. It represents your curiosity for life, your ability to explore with abandon and is also it is very sweet and playful, much like your personal nature.
DAD is the PEPPERMINT Lifesaver, which is full of pep, enthusiasm and taste for life. Peppermint is also helpful when tummy aches troubles emerge, just as your dad has been helpful in solving troubling situations. And MOM is the WINTERGREEN Lifesaver, which represents a soothing and calm influence and a sweet nurturing flavor that is lasting and constant. Both Mom and Dad have the color of WHITE, the color of divine wisdom and clarity; the highest vibrational frequency of light. It leads and holds the space for you children when you are unsure of your own gifts and personal power. Additionally white light sheds light when there is darkness or when you cannot see the road ahead.
Each of us contributes to the WHOLE of our family, and all of us are loved deeply by one another. We give each other life-force and we literally have all felt at one time or another that we have been a “Lifesaver” to one another or been “saved” by the love and concern of another. I am appreciative beyond words… I marvel at how fortunate I am to have been given the gift of such a loving family. So when you pick a color to enjoy, I hope you will also ponder for a moment – to recognize the gift that we all have. Allow yourself to fully understand the depth of our family’s love.
