The Calming Effect of Colour Blue

.
You and I are sea-blue

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions – Pablo Picasso

Colors, they say, is the music of the soul. The subconscious mind reacts to colors for the flow of energy in our body. Like the colour blue, associated with eternity, blue delves into one’s soul to restore peace of mind.

Blue connects you with the divine as its energy is full-strength, calming, quieting and curative. This is a color that seeks peace and tranquillity above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation.

According to the Buddhist philosophy, blue is the color of clarity. To achieve stillness one needs the guidance of a pure mind. The color blue helps in letting you find a sense of faith and hope.

Whenever, in doubt, connect yourself to the color blue. Shut your eyes and imagine yourself breathing the blue color of the ocean to infuse serenity within you, or even objects from your daily life like a blue wall can do the trick. The color helps you to listen to your voice. It provides you the stillness required to connect to thyself.

Numerous ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced Chromotherapy, or the use of colors to heal. Chromotherapy is occasionally mentioned as light therapy and is still used today as an alternative treatment to cure diseases.

According to Chromatherapy, for a proper flow of energy, one should maintain strong blue energy. The color helps in illustrative and creative thinking, giving clarity to the mind.
It exudes certain positive feeling that promote consciousness. It is when your personal insights merge with the collective consciousness, you draw upon the wisdom of the Universe.

Rochie Rana, a color therapist says, “Blue is the colour that brings peace, tranquility and inspiration, its harmonious nature can immediately bring a sense of calm to the environment, completely recommended in the times of stress and even for daily living when one has to endure a million reasons that could each give one a heart attack.”

Blue is also the color of the Throat chakra (5th chakra), the source of communication and manifestations. When the throat chakra is open, your ability to communicate with yourself and people around improves. And getting in touch with your inner self is an absolute joy.

The creation of positive energy can be applied to all your lower chakras. One can access the universal knowledge and integrates it with the personal truth. This expression of your truth (whether it is writing, dancing, singing, or painting) is created from the throat chakra. The color blue affects you on a mental, spiritual, physical and emotional level.

People with weak blue energy appear tensed in the upper body and have a weak spine. Most of the block faced mentally and spiritually can be cured by the introduction of the color blue. Feel the color. Swim in the ocean and gaze at the blue sky. Introduce the color in your day-to-day life and move towards an obstruction free path of spiritual and creative journey.

Lets take a few moments to enjoy the calming effect of the colour Blue –
