The Tao of Blue
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement to enhance the flow of “vital life energy” or Qi.

The Taste of Blue
Food is an important and nourishing way to introduce color in our healing process. Our bodies benefit from the blue food group. The pigments found in blue and purple foods are high in anti-cancer properties. These foods will also coordinate to energy centers within us. Blues foods tend to be helpful for the voice, organs and glands of the neck. Blue is also an appetite suppressant. This is believed to be that due to the fact that nature does not create a blue food other than blueberries, therefore we do not have an automatic appetite response to blue.
Appearing and feeling calm, is the impression blue gives when we wear it. Blue portrays humility and gentleness. It offers a very calming affect to the person wearing it and to those who see it. It is also a known fact that blue reduces blood pressure. Blue is an extremely restful color. The lighter the blue, the less threatening the wearer is perceived. To appear innocent, wear light blue. It gives the impression of being pure. Hence the terms, “virginal blue” or “baby blue”. Honor, trust and compassion are some of the other traits blue generates.
Power Over Us?
“Once in a blue moon” is a common way of saying not very often. Saying the moon was blue was equivalent to saying the moon was made of cheese; it indicated an obvious absurdity. In the 19th century, the phrase meant “never.” But what exactly is a Blue Moon? It is the second Full Moon to occur in a single calendar month. Since this does not happen at any regularity, this is where the phrase came from.
The “blues” are a feeling of depression or sadness. This is sometimes associated with the “winter blues” or SAD (seasonal affective disorder), starting in the Fall and continue into the winter months, sapping our energy and making us feel moody. When there is an excess of blue energy, emotional detachment, cold emotions or aloofness can occur. Blue is not recommended if there is already depression, a lack of communication or feeling blocked.
The complement color to blue, is orange. The remedy to “too much blue” in our lives is balanced by adding orange in the form of orange light, clothes, food or meditation. Orange is an anti-depressant color that lifts spirits by giving off feelings of security, warmth, joy, creativity, fun, humor and independence. Balancing blue with orange, gives us a sense of stability. It creates a feeling of calm with a promise of hope. This equilibrium of cool and warm offers an embracing hug!
