Though I’m a full-time writer now, I used to be a holistic health practitioner. When I had my private practice, one of the many energy-based modalities I used was color therapy.
Color is simply energy; energy made visible. As human beings, color is the only energy we can see. While the speed of light is a constant 186,282 miles per second, the speed of color—its frequency—travels at varying rates depending on the color and shade. As it meets the rods and cones in our eyes, the frequency sends a signal to our brain that allows us to distinguish one color from another.
The colors we wear and surround ourselves with in our home and office stimulate the way we think and feel and how our body’s organs, glands, and systems function. That’s where color therapy—treatment with the appropriate color—comes in. We can use color to stimulate or inhibit the functioning of different parts of our body; to restore balance and normal function.
The energy signature (frequency) of BLUE is cooling and protective. In color therapy, it’s used to help address physical symptoms such as high blood pressure, migraine, fever, cuts, stings/burns, and negatives states of mind such as timidity, fatigue, distrust, indecision, fear of speaking up, and confrontation. Using the color BLUE can help to lower blood pressure, decreases respiration, and is ideal for sleep and over-activity.
BLUE is associated with self-expression and creativity. Essential to writers, BLUE is the color that unleashes creative flair! The frequency of BLUE additionally enhances the absorption of knowledge, promotes relaxation, and improves overall wellbeing. BLUE is calming, expansive, and cool. The muted hues recall a post-rain sky, while the dignified shaded tones exude comfort and rest.
Color speaks volumes about our personal style without us having to say a word. And while color perception is highly individual and connects directly with personal memories and emotions, it’s also universal. BLUE stimulates harmonious, open, and clear communication, ingredients that are vital to working with others peacefully.
Do you need a boost in the areas of self-expression and creativity?
Wear a piece of BLUE clothing. Add a splash of BLUE to your décor with flowers, pillows, a candle, or a throw. Use BLUE sheets that will gently encourage you to sleep at night. Wear jewelry with BLUE gemstones such as aquamarine, turquoise, chrysocolla, sapphire, iolite, or blue topaz.
Unleash your creative flair with the color BLUE!
