Hi there, and thank you for joining me on this incredible journey of colour. It really is incredible how colour can impact our lives on every level. So now as we enter DAY 5 of 17 Days In COLOUR – Let’s look at BLUE.

12931906 - the throat chakra

Healing properties: Blue is cooling, electric, astringent. There’s a famous piece of literature by Dr. Edwin Babbitt, “The Principles of Light and Color,” which says “The Blue Ray is one of the greatest antiseptics in the world.”
The colour Blue cools down inflammation including rheumatic inflammation. It also brings down fever, high blood pressure, stops bleedings, relieves throbbing headaches & calms strong emotions like anger, aggression or hysteria.
Choosing the colour blue for surroundings or when choosing clothes is guaranteed to induce feelings of tranquility. In fact, blue is fantastic for any kind of disease or suffering, but it’s particularly powerful in any elements associated with speech, the voice box or the larynx. This is why anyone in the music/singing profession should try to wear blue accessories as much as possible.
Blue links with and stimulates the throat chakra. The throat chakra is also known as the “power center” and “the greatest center in the body” because it is the primary center of expression and communication.
Magikal Benefits: Blue is governed by the elements water and air. Being surrounded by BLUE attracts deities of the sea, truth and wisdom. Peace and tranquility, calmness, truth, wisdom, justice, counsel, guidance, understanding, patience, loyalty and honor, sincerity, devotion, healing, femininity, prophetic dreams, protection during sleep, astral projection all come from this amazingly powerful colour.
If your favourite colour is blue: Your personality is most likely cool and soothing, leaving you dreamy and magical. You’re a creative type but because of this, peace & rest are paramount in order for you to replenish lost energies. People attracted to this wonderful colour, hate being crowded and really value personal space. For this reason they can be mistaken as anti-social but one thing’s for certain… You’re a loyal friend to have.


In The Stillness of Snow

The stillness of snow, oh how the mind falls silent, calm and peaceful.


A while ago I wrote about life on the 17th floor, the sunsets like an air bound fire, the fear through the eyes of others & so many shades of green – even the greatest of artists would be envious.  Many a physician will die of old age before finding a more powerful sedative – a more potent relaxant. Looking out onto blankets of white, any signs of anger, stress, depression pale into insignificance even if it’s only slightly.  Tomorrow maybe the joy will return fully with a multitude of colours visible from the 17th Floor.
