Star Wars Jedi Master robes

Zen master folds form the V lines that cover the torso, a suggestion of Autumn and turning time. The dynamic energy of the season is manifested via the light saber at the waist, symbolic of the life force that permeates the material universe.
Every Jedi must construct their own lightsaber as a power tool that will defend them in time of strife. The process involves meditation, engineering skills, and the journey to the crystal caves where the central crystals are most often found. The color of the light saber had distinguished the rank of the commission - green blades employed by the diplomatic core, blue blades favored by the guardians, yellow blades used by protectors of the temple, and so on. The purple blade of Mace Windu suggests a frequency at the level of higher soul power, and he was ranked in skill second only to Yoda. White was once used exclusively by the knights of the Old Republic. see more about the significance of the lightsaber colors here. Some things have changed re the Cannon now that Disney is steering the ship through new adventures.
The emphasis of the color scheme is from earth sources: most power figures in pre-Roman time drew their power from the earth and what lies beneath the surface. Note where the downward triangle [male energy normally resides in the skull] of the outside beige jacket meets the belt, the area where the two parts of the physical anatomy are united. The upward triangle formed beneath the belt suggests the feminine energy [normally resides in the intestinal cavity] moves upward toward the skull cavity, suggesting the balance of masculine and feminine energy in the physical anatomy. The centered conscious Jedi Master is the agent of peace and justice in the galaxy because he is a vessel for the harmony and balance of the living force.
Earth tones call up intuitive memory of the ancient initiations, the Earth Goddess and Lord of the Underworld Dis Pater, who both represent the power center network in the human anatomy. This complex system is symbolic of the energy flow mentioned in The Song of Songs in the Old Testament, the study of acupuncture and energy meridians in the east, and techniques like therapeutic touch in the west.
Natural Beige and Golden Wheat are balanced by the sturdy brown boots with a little Red Earth tone to them. Foot ware can facilitate the master's demand he engage with unceasing vigilant action, whatever his varied and sundry charges throughout the galaxy may be. The outer brown robe is made from heavy Chocolate Brown material with a high texture surface. The robe is like a protective envelope. It may alternately function as 'earth-like' camouflage, insulation against inclement weather when on his own in the dark, and a visual suggestion of knightly force-sensitive status - and more.

Queen Amidala and her Handmaidens
Star Wars I The Phantom Menace


The Spring Lines are combined with seasonal colors extracted from Autumn and Winter neutrals. Summer is represented by the texture of the material of Queen Amidala's gown... summed up as a picture for all seasons.

Suzanne Caygill refers to the garden for these Spring lines: "Rounded or rolled as in circles, half-circles, and petal shapes like the fluted, frilly edges of jonquils."

The warmer earth tones of the terrain and architectural backdrop are in the vicinity of both electric skin tones from peach to apricot - Spring and Autumn. The sky and atmosphere that is projected "from up there" outward suggests emotion, in this picture related to pastel Rose and Violet, the skin tones of Summer and Winter. Gray is the inner plane emotional neutral that ties both magnetic seasonal tones with the exterior palette.
We can literally get under 'the skin' of this film if we spend any time at all in observation of the overall presentation represented by this picture.

Since everyone has at least 250 colors within the composition of an individual skin color palette, it is fair to say we are all made up of pretty much the same raw materials. Each person is assembled with a personalized blueprint, ratio guide, and in a slightly different arrangement, but essentially, if reduced to the smallest units, we use the same game plan with our own unique modifications.
For example, Queen Amidala and her handmaidens all refer to a central part of the internal spectrum for their manifestation of diplomatic 'uncommitted' opinion. It is the material of the gown that distinguishes the Queen from her ladies in waiting. She wears the silvery lunar gray that represents the power of the higher sensorium, similar to the silver pools of water the Lady Galadriel collects from the River Anduin in her garden sanctuary.

The decorative symbol at the crown and bands on the right and left arm of the Queen suggest a love of science of clear communication. The Queen knows a great deal about metallurgy and how to balance her intellect by wearing the three key metals for anyone in public life: gold, silver, and copper. They represent will, intuition, and the ability to facilitate energy. Gold generally suggests self-confidence and compassion, silver indicates the empathic and ability to interpret dreams like Joseph in Egypt, and copper is the ability to avoid temptation and addiction while extending one's will into the world of mortals.

Cher's awesome new space also features calming, beige-centric hues ("I prefer a neutral palette," Cher says, "especially in my bedroom, because the colors are so easy to live with.")

There’s also a massive stone-clad bathtub accessorized with a gauze curtain embellished with gold Indian symbols that surrounds the tub with the push of a button. It’s so luxurious even her decorator, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, can’t help but describe it as "very Cleopatra."

"I never get tired of coming into these beautiful, peaceful rooms," Cher says. As someone in the glare of the prying, omnipresent paparazzi, this sense of escape is especially paramount. "There are no words to describe how intrusive they can be," she continues, "which is why my homes, and now this among them, have become so very important. In a word, they are my sanctuaries."

Healer Tones

Serenity of space and sound are often associated with Trump IX The Hermit. People who meditate in seclusion, and out & about with nature, often use the sacred syllable "OM" in their private rooms. In order to properly pronounce this syllable, it is necessary to control the jaw and all the throat muscles. That, in turn, restores the entire physical status to calm. This exercise is subtle so those who practice the meditation don't always reveal their command of the healing tone in public life or realize they use tone of voice for equilibrium.

Healing tones retrofit the multiple envelopes of insulation that surround each human cell like jackets of energy. But layers of protection may be eroded during normal day-to-day activity, depending on compatibility with the world around us. When an environment is positive it gives a feeling of harmony; the whole system is repaired with ease after a rough day "in the salt mines." If the external paradigm is abrasive, negative energy invades the field designed to facilitate healing of our cellular 'armor.' Our 'check your option' criteria blueprint provides quality-of-life design themes that help all departments of life remain in balance.

Some prominent figures in the who's who circle of movers and shakers are exceptions to the 'invisibility rule' and do not remain veiled. They have a healing or retrofitting influence on the protection that acts like armor for the human cell - personally and for those in their vacinity. Here are a few people from a wide variety of professional avenues who may not realize their ability to heal: Kate Capshaw, Cher, Chaz Bono, LL Cool J, Al Jolson, Jennifer López, Senator Wayne L. Morse, Paul Newman, Laurence Olivier, Jimmy Page, Ivy Quainoo, Senator Jay Rockefeller, Gena Rowlands, Howard Suber, Elizabeth Taylor, François Truffaut, Robert Wagner, Cassandra Wilson, and journalist Judy Woodruff.

The Master said:

When a person does not boast of her efforts and does not count her merits a virtue,
she is a person of great parts. It means that for all her merits she subordinates
herself to others. Noble of nature, reverent in her conduct, the modest woman is
full of merit, and therefore she is able to maintain her position.




Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Dowser Design Tip: Emphasize a warm, hospitable welcome by selecting a colour scheme that sends a harmonious signal to all who enter the area. Design the entrance and shared space so neutrals provide energizing, yet subtle, universal themes.

Brown is one of the best comfort colors, the first earth tone. Warm, secure, and steady, brown has a grounding effect on the psyche and the soul. The Weasley decor, in the Harry Potter series, for example, expands on the feeling of raising a family throughout The Burrow.

If you renovate, or remodel a large building such as an inn, place of amusement, or convention area try a neutral glaze over large surfaces. Add beige or gray to a clear glaze to carry an atmosphere from one room to another: use samples of the preferred colour with the prepared glaze to test the combination of colours.

A translucent layer of paint will add drama and harmony to your overall colour scheme. If you are in an experimental mood, try beige, almond, or caramel added to these base colours:

· taupe
· wheat
· peat
· teak
· chocolate brown
· copper beech
· pastel orange
· iced apricot
· silver gray

Strengthen the color by bringing out the hidden undertones in its pigments. Martha Stewart mentions a trick, which the French call camaieu [pronounced cam-eye-YUH] that consists of using a wide range of similar hues together; though each color is slightly different, the overall impression is one of uniformity and harmony.

Create a relaxed atmosphere with soft, pastel taupe glaze over your faux finish. Spruce up old wood paneling, table, and other furniture by refinishing wood or experimenting with colour and texture. Taupe paint makes everything simple if you want to make over a large room and have not yet decided on the accent colour or theme and historical period. Brown comes in many colours and can provide an ideal wall for dramatic furniture, art, colourful chairs, indoor gardens and glass treasure cases. Whimsey won’t be overwhelming in a small room - if you feel the temptation to try a unique fun look, it will be do-able because everything goes well with earth tones.

Brown can be interesting if you have the patience to try different ideas until you find the right one for you. David Hicks once designed a large, well lighted room with laquered coca-cola walls and ceiling. The main wall, with elegant and warm indirect lighting, was covered by a very large triptech painting that was perfectly set off by the internal weather design of the room.

Atmospheric Conditions

Mr. T. C. Kermode, of Peel, member of the House of Keys, the Lower House of the Manx Parliament, very kindly dictated for my use the following statement concerning fairies which he himself has seen:—
Reality of Fairies.—‘There is much belief here in the island that there actually are fairies; and I consider such belief based on an actual fact in nature, because of my own strange experience. About forty years ago, one October night, I and another young man were going to a kind of Manx harvest-home at Cronk-a-Voddy. On the Glen Helen road, just at the Beary Farm, as we walked along talking, my friend happened to look across the river (a small brook), and said: “Oh look, there are the fairies. Did you ever see them?” I looked across the river and saw a circle of supernatural light, which I have now come to regard as the“astral light” or the light of Nature, as it is called by mystics, and in which spirits become visible. The spot where the light appeared was a flat space surrounded on the sides away from the river by banks formed by low hills; and into this space and the circle of light, from the surrounding sides apparently, I saw come in twos and threes a great crowd of little beings smaller than Tom Thumb and his wife. All of them, who appeared like soldiers, were dressed in red. They moved back and forth amid the circle of light, as they formed into order like troops drilling. I advised getting nearer to them, but my friend said, “No, I’m going to the party.” Then after we had looked at them a few minutes my friend struck the roadside wall with a stick and shouted, and we lost the vision and the light vanished.

"Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they’re so frightfully clever. I’m really awfully glad I’m a Beta, because I don’t work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don’t want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They’re too stupid to be able to read or write. Besides, they wear black, which is such a beastly colour. I’m so glad I’m a Beta."

Some people think of gray as an extension of silver, although they are very different from each other. Those who choose gray as a power color, according to Faber Birren, “seek security, relief from any decided ups or downs… a willingness to keep on an even keel, to be reasonable, agreeable, useful in a restrained way.”

Suzanne Caygill assigns Davey Gray to Summer personalities, and natural platinum blondes of Spring or Winter: “shadings of dove, pearl, silver-gray, ash.” She also ascribes Davey Gray to “Winter personalities who have hair with pewter tones. Payne’s Gray is delegated for use by Winter people, Summer men (who select blue-gray as their power color) or Summer men and women with pink skins.”

BACK Autumn - Early Winter


Natural neutrals are often used to represent precise mathematical formulae and relationships, such as the golden mean, ratio structure, and mysticism expressed through number forms.

At right, Arwen at the centre of her universe represented by a geometric symbol drawn in neutral colours.

The Hermetists were the original alchemists, astrologers, and psychologists, Hermes having been the founder of these schools of thought. From astrology has grown modern astronomy; from alchemy has grown modern chemistry; from the mystic psychology has grown the modern psychology of the schools. But it must not be supposed that the ancients were ignorant of that which the modern schools suppose to be their exclusive and special property. The records engraved on the stones of Ancient Egypt show conclusively that the ancients had a full comprehensive knowledge of astronomy, the very building of the Pyramids showing the connection between their design and the study of astronomical science. Nor were they ignorant of Chemistry, for the fragments of the ancient writings show that they were acquainted with the chemical properties of things; in fact, the ancient theories regarding physics are being slowly verified by the latest discoveries of modern science, notably those relating to the constitution of matter. Nor must it be supposed that they were ignorant of the so-called modern discoveries in psychology—on the contrary, the Egyptians were especially skilled in the science of Psychology, particularly in the branches that the modern schools ignore, but which, nevertheless, are being uncovered under the name of "psychic science" which is perplexing the psychologists of to-day, and making them reluctantly admit that "there may be something in it after all."

Quotes about Legolas:

"fair of face beyond the measure of Men" and "has bright elven-eyes with his long slender hand".
- J.R.R Tolkien

"Legolas doesn't speak a lot--he prefers
to let his actions speak for him."
- Orlando Bloom

Though J.R.R Tolkien's "The Hobbit" novel did not include Legolas, Jackson will be integrating the character into the story for Part 1. The Hobbit prequel films are scheduled for release in 2012 and 2013.

"To have been given the opportunity to portray someone like Legolas was exciting and terrifying at the same time, because he is so far beyond any being that you could imagine. Elves have super-human strength, reflex speed, and sensory awareness. They’re these incredible angelic spirits, who create and appreciate great beauty."
- Orlando Bloom

Jeff Bridges - Wild Bill Hickok

"Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art."
—The Kybalion

Collective Deliberations
Natural neutrals give an edge, will downplay tension, and help
to make the most of ' the right moment' when a time window
opens with an opportunity to repair a relationship and to reconsider an earlier harsh judgment.

The Masters do not escape the Causation of the higher planes, but fall in with the higher laws, and thus master circumstances on the lower plane. They thus form a conscious part of the Law, instead of being mere blind instruments. While they Serve on the Higher Planes, they Rule on the Material Plane.

Transparent or translucent glaze is an optional finish that will both seal and set off your beautification project. Glaze is often a third coat of colour applied to an already complete wall, screen, or other flat surface. Neutral colours provide the most subtle glaze effects. When the same glaze appears in a series of adjoining rooms carried throughout the home, the subtle colour can create continuity, harmony and a common theme for family members.

Iced and pastel paint colours work exceptionally well on walls illuminated by a dimmer control switch. For best results, add glaze after the final coat of paint has completely dried. Oil-base paint dries slower than water-base paint.

Oil-base glaze is made of oil paint, glazecoat, and mineral spirits. Water-base is made of water-based paint, acrylic varnish, and water.
