6 Ways The Color Blue Helps Us Live Our Truth and Follow Our Intuition
1. Zen Out with Tranquil Bathroom Blues
Cool colors are known to slow the heart rate and decrease blood pressure. Blue is a great color to calm and soothe. Blue covers the majority of our planet. Blue reminds us of water and the expansiveness of the sky. Turn your bathroom into a home spa by incorporating the color blue. You can also create a sanctuary in your master bedroom with blue to call in peace and tranquility.
2. Clear Your Throat Chakra
Chakras are the primary energy centers in the human body. Each chakra is known for a certain color that shares the same vibrational frequency.
Blue is the color of the throat chakra, the energy center for communication. Blue is also the color of the third eye chakra which supports our intuition. These blue chakras help us hone in on clear communication, emotions, intuition, intelligence, trust, and honesty. Honestly, what’s more important that speaking our truth?
3. Meditate with Blue Crystals Like Calcite
Blue crystals and gemstones like blue calcite are known to aid in clear communication, emotional release and tranquility. My other personal favorite blue crystal is blue kyanite, which helps me with writing from a place of authenticity. I often meditate with calcite and kyanite and keep them by my desk throughout the day. Other blue crystals to try: Lapis Lazuli, Blue Lace Agate, Turquoise and Sodalite.
4. Wear Your True Blues
Do you have an upcoming date, presentation, or job interview? Blue portrays Honesty, Trust, Intelligence, Respect, Passion, Depth, Sincerity, Stability, Dependability, Authority and Confidence. What a fabulous color for a first impression! It is no surprise that 1/3 of brand images are blue.
5. Surround Yourself With Blue at Work and Home
We can create an inspired LIFE and inspired HOME not only by collecting what we love, but by doing so with intention. Surround yourself with this gorgeous color at home with blue accents, walls and artwork.
The Feng Shui element water is associated with the color blue symbolizing ease, purity, freshness, flow, abundance and wealth.
