Blue is associated metaphysically with the Throat Chakra and thyroid gland. This chakra is located at the front of the throat and the base of the skull, and is linked to the neck, arms and hands and is connected with speech and speaking our truths, and encourages spiritual communication and corresponds with our ability to communicate with others, and clairaudience.

The Throat Chakra is our ‘Communication Centre’ and when opened and balanced, encourages us to communicate our truths with clarity.

Being associated with the Throat Chakra, blue encourages communicating outwardly how we feel, what we think and the words we use to express ourselves.

Lots of blue in the aura indicates an artistic and harmonious nature and spiritual understanding. Bright blue denotes confidence and self-reliance and indicates a more positive person than one whose aura radiates a paler blue shade.

Blue food is not a common occurrence in nature (aside from blueberries and blue-purple potatoes) and does not exist in significant quantities as a natural food colour, therefore we do not have an automatic appetite response to the colour blue.  Our primal nature also tends to avoid ‘warning colours’ as our early ancestors foraging for food considered blue, purple and black foods to be potentially lethal.

Blue foods are generally various types of berries and also include seaweed and some white fish, veal, asparagus, potatoes, plums, billberries and blueberries.

Of all the colours in the spectrum, the colour blue is an appetite suppressant.  When looking to lose weight, place your food on a blue plate, store your food in blue containers and even change the fridge lightbulb to a blue one.  Blue lighting can also be used in the dining area for the same reason.
