BLUE FOODS
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 contain vast amounts of health-promoting phytochemicals such as anthocyanins and phoenolics, which are beneficial to the muscular and skeletal systems.

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.

BLUE in RELATION to the CHAKRAS
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. It encourages clairaudience and spiritual communication, and corresponds with our ability to communicate with others.


The Throat Chakra is our ‘Communication Centre’, and when opened and balanced it encourages us to communicate how we feel and what we think with truth 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.

When the Throat Chakra is blocked we experience difficulties with communicating our thoughts clearly, and can be manipulative in our speech. This can result in headaches and tension within the neck and shoulder muscles, and can manifest as colds, influenza, thyroid and/or hearing problems.

  3. I have a question and I'd greatly appreciate it if you respond. I've been seeing a tiny electric blue spark lately (and some white sparks too). Usually at night times, before bed or in the middle of the night. I know what I see is spirit/angel lights and the form of my inner self. Does it mean something else? Thank you.
