We’re in the MOOD for ORANGE

Orange bracelets

Did you know that for millennia, orange was a color without an identity. As a matter of fact, in many languages, orange was the very last color to be named in the rainbow. Poor thing!

The color orange creates a lot of controversy as it draws on strong emotion and is a color that people either love or hate.

As orange is a combination of red and yellow, it takes on many of the characteristics of both colors. Studies show that children who love to color with orange in their drawings or paintings are often outgoing, sympathetic and friendly rather than emotional and intense. They can be described as more imaginative and creative versus intellectual and research minded. Children respond happily to orange as it is correlated with goldfish and popsicles from a very young age.

If you like orange, it seems you work hard and play hard. You are likely energetic and enthusiastic, and enjoy new challenges and can be overly determined. If you lean a little closer to “peach” in your passion for the color orange, you may be much less assertive in the approach you apply to a situation.

If you dislike Orange nothing to flashy appeals to you. You are likely quieter and slower in your approach to get to know someone. Your approach is life is subtle. Life is not all fun and games to you.

We’re in the MOOD for orange right now as we’re feeling stylish, bighearted and super independent as we approach all that fall has to offer ~ we’re imagining a great season.

Life can change in a moment

Life can change in a moment-that’s why I understand the power that I have to “choose my mood”.  Albeit the date of September 11,2001 is a universal day of hardship for our world, for my family it was our own (universal) hardship. My child was sick. Very sick. Out of the corner of my eye, in our hospital room. Additionally with the rest of the world, I stood watching as a plane flew into a building. And then another. I can’t pretend to know what all of you were feeling as the towers crumbled, lives were ripped apart and horror spread through our country — but I can tell you that my soul was being crushed like only a mothers can when her child is hurting. I was watching my 2 year old child fight for his every breath. He was quietly sleeping while doctors were preparing to do a liver biopsy – my world was about to change – and little did I know, so was all of yours.
That day became a blur for all of us, and for me even blurrier as the hospital shut down in fear of some type of retaliation and threat to Chicago as well.  Try and tell a mother there will be no surgery right now, and that there would be no more testing until the world got a sense of (control) again. We had to wait. We had to watch our sick little boy become sicker – and there was NOTHING anyone could do. As the days unraveled, and we had the surgery, we sat frozen in our own fear, and were strangers to the aftermath of the catastrophic events going on outside the walls of our hospital. Was this a dream, was someone playing a horrible joke, was ANY of this real?
As we received the news that my son had a life threatening liver abscess things became even more overwhelming, I remember sitting in the corner of our child’s room arguing with my husband who would (leave) this world first if anything happened to our boy. We were clearly in shock, and acting in fear, but there was a MOOD that we had gotten caught up in. At that moment, our pediatrician came in and heard a glimpse of the conversation and in that moment, my life forever changed. She took us by complete surprise and scolded us as if we were her own children. “You will not make this about you. You will not be burdened by whatever the outcome of this story is. You will get it together as the parents God made you and you will parent this child and deal with whatever the outcome. You will Choose your MOOD, you better make it a good one”. I can’t be exact if that was the way each word came out, but you get the picture. This was “my choice” in how I was going to deal with it. And from this day forward, my MOOD has been a conscious choice. Really, it has.
My brand Lifetherapy has been a very serious, yet playful approach to life. There will be a million circumstances in each of our days but we have to remember that we have a choice in how we react. I have always been passionate about retail; having owned a boutique and restaurant for over 20 years, I have grown up in a playground of products and beautiful things. Lifetherapy was a natural place for me to (work) in creating a brand of products, and it made all the sense in the world for my products to be designed around MOOD and how we can use our MOOD to create awareness of our choices. Fragrance and color were two vital components that I felt I needed to work in to convey the power of our minds. We are drawn to fragrance and we are drawn to color because they make us FEEL something.
Lifetherapy is a brand about positivity, a culmination of my life’s experiences. It is presented to you through mood boosting fragrances, vibrant colors in accessories and lifestyle products. The mission of the brand is for you to realize your mood is your choice and it’s within you to choose it. We humbly ask you to #ChooseYourMOOD.

#POSITIVITY on my birthday

Yes, I am blogging, or at least trying to. My needs have always been strong for communication and mental stimulation, and although I am at my best when I am one on one – I felt the need to raise more awareness about my mission to positively affect the way women approach the everyday with Lifetherapy and it seems that the most effective way to do this is to discuss LIFE right here. Let’s just call this my vision board of communication. Feel free to jump in at any time.I love new beginnings. So I decided today, the first day of my BIRTHday year- that I’d embark on something NEW and put another stamp of my individuality on all that Lifetherapy stands for.


If you are a new customer or friend to the brand Lifetherapy, you will quickly learn that I am a hands-on POSITIVE person. Meaning if you’re not feeling positive, I will give it my best to help you see a different way through your experience and if I am not positive, feel free to kick me right in the A–!
Through many years of boutique and restaurant madness, I adored having a place that people could come to and feel the positive. It’s an energy that I can’t put words too, so if you didn’t get the opportunity to see my work – I believe someday you will. When I closed my brick and mortar property 5 years ago after a near 20 year stint, there was a part of me that felt frozen with the lack of day to day stimulation of seeing, and touching the people. Albeit busy launching my brand over the past 5 years, I have missed the conversation with my customers. Last night, as my birthday day came to an end – I thought, why not just talk to the (people) here – on the website. I have not planned this story – I do not have a “shell” I am following to write and engage, and I am not watching how others do it. This will be “our” little place to discover and talk openly about what makes a positive life and how I feel subtle reminders of our God given senses can pull out the negative.
It’s no secret that I love product. I am good at sourcing product and I have always had a natural place in the consumer world as far as understanding a good mix to bring in to create an ambiance around our souls to create positive energy. A simple candle, a color, a fragrance, or a special this or that to stimulate our individualism and spark a little energy rush within – this is the passion that goes into each of the products that my brand Lifetherapy now creates. Launching with accessories and bath & body products all designed to stimulate or evoke a MOOD, along with a simple word of encouragement to think stronger, fight harder and above all have a positive attitude, I hope we become fast friends. I encourage you to #chooseyourMOOD and join our journey.

Choose Your Mood: The Power of Green

green

By Lynette Lovelace, Lifetherapy

Green is the color of life, and harmony in nature. It symbolizes balance as it suggests both states of freshness and of flourishing. In nature we find countless valuable resources and cherished escapes from our modern day lives.

The color green is said to have healing powers. It is the most restful color to the human eye. It is a color associated with hope. Green is also a good listener as it loves to observe, and enjoys contributing to society.  It is a charity worker, a good parent, and the helpful neighbor. To become grounded in nature is to feel safe and secure in your roots into this world and to others.

Green promotes love of nature, family, friends and home. It is the color of the heart chakra at the center of the chest. This chakra bridges the gap between the spiritual world and the physical world. Add some green to your life when you need a new deeper sense of balance. There are many non material goods to be gained but I would be remiss not to say that green is also associated with money. The color also assists one to feel more safety in trying economic times allowing you to move forward and pursue new ideas.

Indigo quiets the mind and helps to open up awareness to ones intuition. It is said to be the mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery, and spiritual realization.

Purple is a combination color derived from the power of red and the luxurious, stability of blue. The color is synonymous with creativity, its exuberance is controlled yet it is playfully confident enough to step outside the box. Purple has long been associated with nobility.

 

Leonardo da Vinci believed that the power of meditation was greatly heightened when done in purple light. He felt the use of purple in stained glass could offer a subject up to ten times the intensity and focus. In the science of meditation and the chakras, purple is the color of the seventh Crown chakra known as Sahasrara. This point is located at the top of the head and linked to the nervous system, brain, and is said to be associated with pure thought.

 

Add some purple to enhance your sense of creativity and deepen spiritual understanding.

Celebrate with dignity the sense of your unique and powerful being. Add some purple when you wish to truly understand and appreciate yourself and the world that surrounds you.

It is said that painters use red as a chef uses spice. Red can increase the heart beat, pulse rate, and the respiration rate of its viewer. It is enticing to the eye and is often the color associated with sensuality. Red is the color of our life sustaining blood, it is strong confident and commands attention. Red is also strongly associated with love and passion. Think valentines and I am certain red comes to mind.

 

In the study of meditation and the chakras, the color red is assigned to the Muladhara, the lowest part of the spine. This area is associated with balance and the issues of stability and survival. When this chakra is balanced and the energy is allowed to flow we are said to feel grounded, safe, stable and strong. If you are seeking strength and relief from anxiety add some red in your life to encourage action and confidence.

Choose Your Mood: The Power of White by Lynette Lovelace, Lifetherapy

 

Lifettherapy Positivity in Color Bracelet Pink

Lifettherapy Positivity in Color Bracelet Pink - also available in White

By Lynette Lovelace, Lifetherapy

 

White is the color associated with innocence, purity, and uncomplicated perfection. White also symbolizes a clean slate, a fresh beginning, perhaps a do- over.

 

The power of white space is recognized in advertising and art. The crisp clean backdrop of white takes nothing away from the subject, rather it lends to its focus and attention. For this very reason people often choose a white environment to encourage mental clarity and a freedom from clutter.

 

Add white into your life to remind yourself of the beauty of simplicity. Bolster up feelings of purity and good and foster an uncluttered focus as you embark upon the newness of each day.
