The 5th Chakra, also known as the Throat Chakra, is represented by the spiritual color blue which is soothing and brings harmonic calmness into our lives.
It is said that your communication skills are improved when you meditate surrounded by blue items such as clothing or candles.
In the aura, blue indicates serenity, contentment and spiritual development. So, look to the skies, the lakes, the seas of the earth for the lovely benefits that the color of blue brings into our lives.

“Through associations with the sky, the ocean and water, most people associate blue with openness, peace and tranquility,” says Zhu, who conducted the research with UBC PhD candidate Ravi Mehta. “The benign cues make people feel safe about being creative and exploratory. Not surprisingly it is people’s favourite colour.”
The color blue is the spiritual color most closely identified with the 5th Chakra which is also referred to as the Throat Chakra.
Our Throat Chakra is naturally our center of communication. It also positively affects the vocal cords, esophagus, the neck, shoulders, arms, mouth, teeth, and cervical vertebrae of the spine.
Blue • Unification • Creativity
Blue is widely believed to stimulate creativity so be sure to wear blue if you need to brainstorm about something with your co-workers or friends. Also, people who wear navy blue find that public speaking becomes less uncomfortable and the words flow more smoothly.
“They took the blue of the skies and a pretty girls eyes and a touch of old glory too …”
This is an excerpt from the US Air Force anthem which is appropriate because they wear blue uniforms. This indicates that the color blue is seen as an element that unifies and protects.
🔮 Mix blues with just a dash of red for a balanced outlook if you find yourself gossiping or talking too much. You might have too much blue energy going for you so carry a red stone in your pocket or add a brooch with red gemstones to your favorite blue jean jacket.
It is believed that the energy of blue is very healing and you know you need more blue in your life when you get illnesses popping up such as laryngitis, sore throats, swollen glands, hearing problems, jaw and neck issues, thyroid imbalances and ear infections.

Blue in our Intimate Environment
Do you feel a need more blue energy in your life? Then answer that call from the Universe by including blue in your home decor. The first thing that comes to mind when blue is a design element, is the bedroom. Blue is a soothing color, so it’s great for bedrooms!
It’s also a perfect color to use when you want to create a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom. But, keep in mind that too much a good thing has a down-side. If you use too much blue, you might find yourself on the verge of depression, so spark it up with some whites and other lighter hues.
The color blue is great for a formal living or dining room. This is because it also brings with it an air of formality, yet it is ever soothing and calm. What a nice combination of attributes!
