Nature's First Green is Gold

It's amazing how you can find harmony in nature's own palette. "Nature's first green is gold, " wrote the American poet Robert Frost in his 1923 ode to the fleeting natural world. Gold is the element of metal, and a perfect accent for your metal and water directions (West, NW and North). 
     Metal chi (energy) is contractive by nature. The earth contains ore deep within as a precious quality that provides structure. In everyday life, metal chi reminds us to take pause, move within, listen, observe, focus and organize our thoughts. Through this process we become aware of what matters most and then can commit and align worldly actions with those inner values. 
     Tune in and anchor your mind to your deepest intention. In doing so, you automatically connect to your higher state of being so that even during the most turbulent times you can hold true to your highest self.
     Vedic wisdom tells us every person is a piece of gold. Pure gold is your essence created from the love of the Universe. Gold is luminous and cherished as are you.
     Making subtle adjustments to your décor periodically is an excellent way to celebrate the simplicity and oneness with nature and connect to a higher state of mind. There are many simple ways to imbue the element of metal into your environment. A gold, silver, copper or bronze vase. Wall metallic decorative accents or cocktail table. The element metal is also associated with curved shapes or any of the metallic color hues including creamy whites.
     When you work with the accents of nature in décor, you invite harmony into your life. From the words of John Muir; "Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees."
