  • The Color Orange: the color of creativity and enthusiasm

    My favorite orange coffee cup runneth over! It brightens my morning.

    The Color Orange beckons yoga clothing meaning of orangeNothing rhymes with orange, but many wonderful things sport this vibrant color. It is the most flamboyant color on the planet. The orange of a brilliant sunset inspires awe in even the most cynical. The color orange represents endurance, strength, vitality, celebration, self-respect, abundance, joy, openness to others and enthusiasm for life. It lifts energy and strengthens concentration. Orange is motivating. It is associated with fun times, happy, energetic days. It is the color of creativity and ambition. It is most appreciated by the young.

    Orange is a combination of red and yellow. It enjoys the cheerful effect of yellow. Because it is a warm color and very close to the color red, orange also shares many of the same psychological effects of red: increased sexuality, desire, pleasure, awe, and fertility. Like red, orange draws attention to the wearer.

    Orange is the sacral color of the second charka, governing the reproductive organs, where creative, sexual and emotional energies reside.

    Physiologically, the color orange energizes, stimulates the appetite and the digestive system. It is thought to increase the oxygen supply to the brain and stimulate mental activity.

    Most people feel ambivilant about orange. It is usually picked as a least favorite color in most color surveys.

    How to use orange to affect your life:

    When deciding what to wear to an interview, one would do well to avoid this color in large quantities, unless you are interviewing for a graphic arts position. Orange screams creativity. If you are an artist, wearing orange will reinforce the artsy look. A mere pair of orange sunglasses worn with a neutral outfit will send a subtle message of independent thinking.

    Some say that orange is associated with cheap things. Because of this, do not wear an outfit that is predominantly orange to any event where you are trying to impress others that you respect.

    When designing a product or look that is easy-going and youthful, one might consider incorporating some type of orange into the design.

    In the Feng Shui tradition, orange is most favored for southern spaces to bring warm, vibrant energy to a home. In the bagua area of fame and reputation (far center section) orange is particularly helpful; it symbolizes fire. Color can be introduced to a space through objects, paint, or art pieces. Placed with intention, this fire energy can bring with it the intense effects of love and companionship. Orange should be avoided in the bedroom unless passion is your goal.

    Carnelian malaTo promote rejuvenation and get your creative juices flowing, wear an orange gemstone of carnelian, sunstone, coral, or fire opal.

    Choosing to wear orange says to the world, “I feel creativity streaming through my body, soul and mind.” It also says, “My creativity has the power to create and transform.”

    There is no blue without yellow and without orange. - Vincent Van Gogh

  • The Color Red: the color of courage and action

    Color is considered one of the most useful and powerful design tools, red having the greatest power of all the colors. It is the color with the greatest emotion. It advances and screams for attention, “Here I am!” It warns us, makes us hungry, increases our risk taking, and grounds us. The color red gives the impression of seriousness and dignity. Red is love, passion, sex, ripeness, and fertility.

  • Introduction: Using Color as a Tool for Self Improvement

    The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you. – Coco Chanel

    Everyday we make decisions based on color, mostly without knowing it. We choose clothing, reach for breakfast cereal, and honor someone’s message partially because of color. Most of this reaction is subconscious, part of the natural programming of the human body. It’s what makes us instinctively know that fire is dangerous and that green grass is comforting. By using the powerful psychological tool of color, you can send a positive or negative message, stimulate sales, calm a crowd, or encourage people to take notice.

  • Change Your Life Through Color

    Color is all around us. We wear color everyday. People respond to different colors in different ways, and these responses occur on a subconscious, emotional level. At BECKONS®, we believe the colors we wear, and surround ourselves with, can make a difference in how we feel and how people feel about us.beckons color wheel

    Our goal is to empower people with the knowledge of how to use color to affect change in their lives. We have created a color chart that presents the most common effects each color has according to our western culture. We have pulled information from Feng Shui, Chakra and Cultural sources to create our chart. Certainly, your intention to affect change may be the primary reason it occurs. Your simple belief that if you wear turquoise, in one of its many forms, you will think more clearly and have greater patience may indeed be what brings those qualities to you. If color, then, is just a tool to identify our intention, we have succeeded.

    A person does not have to wear one color from head to toe to make color helpful. You only need to make a conscious decision about wearing something of color to enhance your day. A carefully chosen pair of red coral earrings or shoes, worn with a black suit, may be all you need to bring that extra sense of self-confidence and courage it takes to have a successful day. Please keep this BECKONS® color chart on hand to use in choosing the color you wear when you need a little extra help in your life. If you believe it helps, it will help.

    The BECKONS® color chart was developed from a compilation of data from feng shui, chakra, and cultural use of color sources. We pulled out the most frequently found meanings and paired them with our own color experience, taking into account our western culture. This is the opinion of BECKONS® and is not a result of formal experimentation.

We, then, race into the field of the photo and adjust the clothing to eliminate the wrinkles. This season we have four fabulous models: Sarah Culter, Peyton Prater, Isha Eve Emley (not pictured) and Kathryn Visser. Continue reading

  • intend. wear. become.

    Beckons Organic clothing, intention tagIt's our belief that life spent with intention is a far more satisfying journey. When we begin our day expecting joy, abundance, and love, that is what we receive. If we wear these words on our bodies, or choose a garment that reminds us of what we want to experience, we strengthen the power of this intention.

    In developing the Beckons clothing line, Becky was inspired by the work of Masaru Emoto and his book, The Message From Water. Emoto has done extensive research on the power of words and their impact on physical elements. His work clearly shows the significant impact words, music and art can have on the structure of water, as shown through his photographs of the water crystals that form when exposed to different word combinations. The difference between the impact of positive words and images compared to negative ones is nothing short of amazing. At Beckons we believe this same positive effect can impact our physical bodies in much the same way, considering the human body is comprised of almost 80 percent water.

    This very simple, yet profound, idea inspired Becky to use that same philosophy to help people through her designs. By putting positive words on our bodies, we are directing positive energy to change our energy in a similar way. We are using the law of attraction to bring strength, grace, wisdom into our lives. So, each Beckons garment has a very discreet intention tag sewn in to support you, in what ever way you may need. The tags include beautiful words that reflect the yogic lifestyle: joy, strength, wisdom, grace, love, courage, peace, balance, and integrity.
