Indigo represents the intuitive reception of our “gut feeling”, using that intuition for guidance and good.
Indigo allows you to withdrawal into your inner-self. It allows you to withdraw to obtain peace, quiet, and freedom to stretch boundaries. It is also the source for intuition, clairvoyance, extrasensory perception.
Indigo stimulates the sense organs such as the eyes and ears. Deep blue or indigo combines the blood-warming red and the cooling antiseptic of blue. It is an excellent stimulant without being an irritant.
Indigo in Healing
Indigo is a color that is traditionally regarded as a color in the visible spectrum, as well as one of the seven colors of the rainbow (the color between blue and violet). It is a color that is calming to both the nervous system and the lymphatic system. Indigo is believed to benefit the bloodstream as a purification color and also benefits mental problems such as ADD, ADHD and autism. The term “Indigo Child” has an association, as some professionals believe, with being more empathetic and creative than others.
The Nature of Indigo
Indigo is the color “betwixt and between”. It is the twilight, where cascading sun reaches further out from its long journey across the earth just before it lets go of the day. Indigo is the preparation for change! In nature, it is the time of contemplation and meditation. It is the best time of day to detect the “aura” as the long cooling wavelengths of light offer a glimpse into the soul. The indigo bunting, blue grosbeak and eastern indigo snake are a dark blue/black while the Lactarius indigo is one species of mushrooms colored in tones of blue.
Indigo is the color of intuition and perception and is helpful in opening the Third Eye Chakra. It promotes deep concentration during times of introspection and meditation, helping you achieve deeper levels of consciousness. Those with indigo aura often have an interest in religion or with intense spirituality and intuition. Indigo children are said to have predominantly indigo auras. People with indigo auras are said to favor occupations such as computer analyst, animal caretaker, and counselor.
The Tao of Indigo
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement to enhance the flow of “vital life energy” or Qi. Practitioners believe that environments can be arranged and decorated in a way that maximizes the flow of Qi, resulting in improvements to health and happiness of those who live in that environment. Indigo is associated with contemplative and meditative energy, It can work well in a bedroom or meditation room. Use this also in the Knowledge, Skills or Northeast area of the bagua for your home or office. It expresses wisdom and harmony, It represents ecouraging self-growth and cultivating a peaceful life
The Taste of Indigo
The pigments found in blue and purple foods are high in anti-cancer properties. Blue foods tend to be helpful for the voice, organs and glands of the neck, while indigo and violet foods work in conjunction with the pineal and the pituitary glands. They also contain water-soluble vitamins that strengthen tiny blood vessels, which can help swollen feet or ankles, speed up the healing of bruises and promote healthy collagen for fewer wrinkles. Include these blue and indigo foods into your diet: blueberries, black currants, plums, concord grapes, purple cabbage, as well as, Vitamin E, kelp, iodine and seaweed products.
This color generates respect. Dark blue adds importance to people. It is perceived as a hard working and serious color for those who wear it. Blue shades also generate sympathy. In court, navy blue says, “I’m telling the truth”. It is also the connection to our intuition. As children we are instinctually connected utilize our “sixth sense” or intuition daily. As we grow older we tend to mistrust ourselves and our sense of knowing. Indigo helps us tune back into this.
Power Over Us?
Indigo links with and stimulates the Third Eye Chakra, which controls the pituitary gland and corresponds to the left eye, sinus region, the nose as well as vision. Indigo is on the cooling spectrum range and assists in finding inspiration, concentration, insight, imagination, focus, sheer devotion, clarity of awareness and intuition. It brings peace of mind. As beings of light and energy, our sense of empowerment is linked to our intention. Our intention is associated with our gut feeling and this connection is received by the Third Eye Chakra.
The Balance of Indigo
Indigo combines the cold, deep blue of the sea with hot, stabilizing red. Indigo is cold, electric, intense. It offers us objective contemplation with a sense of entranced devotion. A balance of this color is important for us to understand the higher aspects of our persona (intuition, faith, unity), while grasping the contemplation of our inner soul (devotion, duty, idealism). When we experience too much indigo, it can lead to a sense of depression and a feeling of separateness from others. We can become impractical and fearful, judgmental and inconsiderate and intolerant of those around us.
The complement color to indigo, is orange. The remedy for “too much indigo” in our lives is balanced by adding orange in the form of orange light, clothes, food or meditation. Orange is extremely balancing and creates a happy, bright space of unconditional enlightenment. Balancing indigo with orange, gives us a sense of joy. It lifts our spirits and brings us a better ability to communicate. This desensitizing of a cold color with a warming one, offers a welcomed comfort!
