The metaphysical properties of


Blue colour properties

In this series of posts on the properties of colour I have included an overview of the metaphysical properties and information on some colours and the chakras that they relate to.  I have also included some lessons and affirmations.

Later, in a more in-depth series, I will build on the properties of these colours and how you can use them to your benefit.

Having studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level I find the natural benefits of vibrations from colour intriguing and I’m always trying to find out more information on this subject.

The Lesson for Blue is

"Depression and the “blues”.

Under this colour one can feel that things not going the way you want. There can be a need for peace and tolerance.

A lack of trust (both of self and others) and a sense of loneliness, detachment, separation or isolation can also be found under this colour.

Blue can bring forth a lack of self-expression. Frigidity (frozen feelings) and sadness. It can be used as “The mask” – covering up something / not expressing you true self. There may be a need to ask for something – to use your voice / express yourself.

Difficulties with male or father energy (both external and within self) can be found under this colour as can a resentment of authority. This colour can be introverted or suggest traits of perfectionism or feelings of superiority.

The need for Blue is

"to trust"

An affirmation suitable for this colour is

"I am safe to speak"

Of course, this won’t happen just by saying it once off. Each and every time you feel unworthy or stuck in the past, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

Other affirmations that would be suitable for this colour are “I trust myself” and “I have faith in the process of my life”. 

This colour connects with

European countries, the Earth, “The Blueprint”.

Chakra and physical areas associated with blue are the throat, base of skull, Thyroid, Para Thyroid, neck, shoulders and voice.

Crystals / Gems

That may provide assistance with these issues

You may find wearing or using these or other Blue items provides assistance when dealing with any of this colour’s lessons or if you wish to draw on its benefits.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Blue isn’t your favourite colour?  Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about blue sheets or throws with blue patterns (or just a pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this gorgeous colour.

Eat a bowl of blueberries or make a delicious smoothie.  All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.
