Discover the Energy of Blue Crystals: A Comprehensive Guide to Color Psychology and Healing Properties

Welcome to another installment of our educational series, Crystallize the Rainbow! ๐ŸŒˆ Throughout this journey weโ€™re combining the fascinating world of color psychology with crystals and their properties.

Blue is the color of harmony, balance, new beginnings, and more! Blue crystals reflect the serene and calming qualities of their color, each one offering a distinct and special charm. โœจ

As a little reminder, my number 1 tip for learning crystal properties is to learn basic color psychology so we’re going to focus on blue color psychology and how it relates (quite perfectly) to blue crystal properties.

Blue Color Psychology

Blue evokes feelings of peace, calm, serenity, safety, and wisdom. Blue, with its peaceful energy, invites us into a gentle presence. It soothes, nurtures, and calms the mind, body and spirit – just like the ocean! ๐ŸŒŠ

Blue is like a breath of fresh air or the first glimpse of the ocean on a beach vacation: it gently calms the soul, uplifts the spirit, and deepens our sense of inner peace and clarity. ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒ€

Blue Color Psychology ๐Ÿค Blue Crystals

Now that we have a good foundational understanding of the color psychology of blue, it should be much easier to guess and remember the properties of blue crystals!

Remember, blue brings properties such as calm, peace, tranquility, communication, wisdom, and more!

Blue crystals, though each possessing unique properties, generally embody the qualities of calm, peace, tranquility, communication, wisdom, and more. When you see a blue crystal, you can confidently assume it carries some of these characteristics. Similarly, if you need support in areas such as stress, anxiety, fear, or effective communication, reaching for a blue crystal is a great idea!

Here are a few popular blue crystals and their specific properties!

Blue Calcite: calming + soothing

Blue + the Chakras

Letโ€™s explore the wonderful world of BLUE via the chakra system, which beautifully intertwines color psychology and crystal properties. The chakra system originated in ancient India and while there is some discrepancy of how old the system is, we know itโ€™s around 4,000 years old!

What’s a chakra?

Imagine your body as an energy playground filled with spinning wheels of color, consciousness, and power. These are your chakras; your personal energy centers that come in a rainbow spectrum of seven main wheels.

Starting from the base of your pelvis and traveling all the way up to the crown of your head, each chakra is like its own mini-brain, with its own set of superpowers. Theyโ€™re not stacked in a hierarchy; instead, they work together as a team, governing every aspect of your life. From your physical well-being to your emotional state and even your psychology, these chakras are the ultimate power squad within you.

You might recall from previous blog posts in this series that each color corresponded to a single chakra (for instance, orange representing the sacral chakra). However, for the color BLUE, we’re exploring both the throat chakra (lighter blue/aqua) and the third eye chakra (deep blue/indigo), both of which can be represented by blue. Let’s dive in! ๐Ÿ‘‡

The Throat Chakra

Our throat chakra is the core of our communication and self-expression. Have you ever experienced a “lump in your throat” when attempting to express something difficult or felt a burst of confidence while speaking your truth? These sensations are manifestations of your throat chakra responding to the energies and emotions flowing within you.

Located in the base of the throat, this chakra acts as a passageway for the energy that fuels our ability to communicate clearly and authentically. The throat chakra is represented by the color blue, because as you learned above on the color psychology of blue, it aligns with the chakraโ€™s essence of calm, clarity, and truthful expression. Just as blue symbolizes trust, loyalty, and wisdom, the throat chakra embodies these traits, enhancing our communication and connection with others. ๐Ÿ’™

When focusing on our chakras, the goal is to have them balanced. Sometimes a chakra can be energy deficient and sometimes that same chakra could have too much energy. While lots of energy may sound like a good thing, we donโ€™t want an overactive chakra! If one has too much energy, it means itโ€™s compensating for something. So, we want to make sure all chakras are balanced and in alignment.

An Energy Deficient Throat Chakra

When we’re energy deficient in our throat chakra, we have trouble speaking up, stating our needs, standing up for ourselves and/or others. We donโ€™t think our words, voice or opinions matter. If we do speak up, itโ€™s mumbled or self-conscious. This can also look like having a very difficult time saying no, as well as not being able to express yourself creatively.

An Overactive Throat Chakra

Too much throat chakra energy can lead to problems with over-communication, such as talking too much or not listening attentively.

An Aligned Throat Chakra

When our throat chakra is balanced, we can communicate our needs and our truth openly with love and kindness for both ourselves and others, and weโ€™re also able to freely express ourselves. When our throat chakra is neither overpowering nor withdrawn, but balanced and aligned, we’ve allowed our true voices to shine through. ๐Ÿ’™

Balancing our Throat Chakra

By nurturing and balancing our throat chakra, we empower our voices and strengthen our ability to communicate authentically. Some ways we can take care of and bring our throat chakra back into alignment are:

๐Ÿ’™ Positive affirmations

๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Meditation and sound therapy

๐ŸŽค Singing or reading poetry

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ Engaging in honest conversations

๐Ÿ“– Journaling your honest thoughts and feelings

๐Ÿ’Ž And of course . . . using BLUE CRYSTALS (specifically blue crystals that lean toward teal/aqua coloring) while engaging in these activities

These practices can help ensure your throat chakra is vibrant and well-balanced, enabling you to express yourself clearly and truthfully. ๐ŸŒ€

The Third Eye Chakra

Our third eye chakra serves as the compass for our inner knowing. If you’ve ever experienced a gut feeling guiding your actions, a sudden moment of clarity, or an instinctive pull toward a particular path, it’s likely your third eye chakra at work. This chakra guides our internal vision and connects us to our subconscious mind.

Located on the forehead, just between the eyebrows, this chakra is your gateway to the deeper realms of perception. The third eye chakra is also represented by the color blue but specifically deeper blues and indigos, which align with the chakra’s attributes of insight, intuition, and mental clarity. Like the expansive night sky or the deep sea, this blue and the third eye chakra symbolizes the vastness of thought and the exploration of the mind.

An Energy Deficient Third Eye Chakra

When we’re energy deficient in our third eye chakra, itโ€™s difficult to dream (not sleep dreaming but dreaming for our life), we have a hard time connecting to our imagination and weโ€™ve lost touch with the magic and mystery of life. Trusting our intuition becomes difficult, and we may hesitate to believe in what we know deep down.

An Overactive Third Eye Chakra

Excess energy in the third eye chakra can lead us to become caught up in our dreams and in the realms of our imagination, to the point where we may struggle to distinguish between reality and fantasy. This lack of grounding can result in difficulties in manifesting our ideas into action.

An Aligned Third Eye Chakra

When our third eye chakra is balanced, we feel connected to our inner wisdom, have huge dreams, can envision things for our life and those around us, and act on those dreams and intuitions. We have great insight and inner wisdom of who we are at our core and are in touch with our intuition. This alignment helps you navigate life with a clearer sense of purpose and understanding. โ˜ฎ๏ธ

Balancing our Third Eye Chakra

Bringing our third eye chakra into balance enhances our ability to access intuition and understand deeper truths, facilitating clearer decision-making and heightened awareness. This balance allows us to connect more profoundly with our inner guidance and perceive beyond the surface of everyday life. Some ways we can take care of and bring our third eye chakra back into alignment are:

๐Ÿ’™ Visualization Techniques

๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Guided Meditation for Insight

๐Ÿ“š Reading or Studying

๐ŸŒŒ Stargazing or Cloud Watching

๐Ÿ”ฎ Using Intuitive Practices like Tarot Cards

๐Ÿ’Ž And of course . . . using BLUE CRYSTALS (specifically deep blue or indigo) while engaging in these activities
