Blue:  The Color of Calmness, Concentration,
Healing, Relaxation, Loyalty and Trust

Blue is the color of the intellect.  Those with a predisposition toward blue energy will be calm, rational individuals who are simply looking for order, peace, and calmness in their lives.  However, because they are so intellectual they often tend to not express their feelings as fully as they should.  The blue energy center is in the throat area, and if this person does not learn to express his or her feelings, there will most likely be energy blockages in the throat area.  Also, the blue is complimented by orange, so if the blue person is having trouble with relationships and these are not expressed, blockages in the throat area can also result.  Blue is a cold color, so these people often have low blood pressure and cold feet and hands.  The antidote for this is red.

Blue light slows down energy, so it is good for relaxation purposes.  Experiments have shown that blue light slows down the growth of inflammation (not surprising since inflammation is red).  Blue is often used to for migraine headaches and to ease the complications of asthma.  It also is used as a sleeping aid and to reduce fear.  Blue relates to the left eye, nose, ears, lower brain, and nervous system. It also influences vision and seeing the way ahead.

Blue individuals are very conservative, trustworthy, and loyal.  However, if their blue energy is not balanced, they can become very tiresome.

Do you have a blue predisposition?  Ask yourself:

1.  Do you have pale blue or blue-gray eyes?
2.  Does your skin have a "cool" undertone (as opposted to a pink or yellow/brown tone)?
3.  Do you find you often get depressed?
4.  Do you suffer from anemia, lung problems, or cold hands and feet?
5.  Are you generally quiet and introverted?

If you scored 0-1, your blue color center was probably under-energized at birth.
If you scored 2-3, you have inherited a balance of blue color energy from your parents.
If you scored 4-5, you have a blue color predisposition.

Balancing of both blue and green energy is accomplished by the addition of some red.

Red foods are:

cranberries, damsons, raspberries, red apples, red cherries, redcurrants, red plums, rhubarb, rosehips, strawberries, watermelon, aduki beans, black-eyed peas, red kidney beans, red lentils, beetroot, eggplant, Jerusalem artichoke, mustard and cress, radishes, red cabbage, red chilies, red peppers, red-skinned onions and potatoes, red peppers, sea vegetables (red and black varieties), spinach (green with red stems), tomatoes, watercress, and any vegetable containing iron, such as horseradish or parsley.

Red herbs include:  cayenne, hibiscus flowers, mint, mustard, peppermint, thyme, black, white, and red pepper, ginger, nettles, rosemary.

Red herb teas include:  bergamot flower, raspberry, rosehip, hibiscus flower

If you have too much blue energy, blue food colorings and additives should also be avoided.  They are FD&C blue no. 1, and FD&C blue no. 2.  The names of these are sometimes brilliant blue FCF, indigo carmine, indigotine, or patent blue V.  These are coal tar dyes which when combined with tartrazine can color foods green.  Watch out for canned processed peas.  The dyes can give a blue color when put in candy, cookies, and convenience foods.
