What is the meaning of throat chakra color on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels? Explore this Divine color in depth, learn what it means and what it represents.

Blue - is the first of the three primary colors and it is the color of the throat chakra.

Blue connects you with the Divine and it is the color that we associate with Heaven.

Blue energy is pure, soothing, calming, and healing.

Imagine yourself lying on the grass on a beautiful sunny day, looking at the blue sky. How do you feel?

Peaceful. Serene. Content. Tranquil.

That is the power of throat chakra color.

Blue is also at the cooler end of the spectrum, where things slow down, allowing you to take time to be still.

And to listen to your own voice. To listen to the stillness within and to express what needs to be expressed.

In Buddhist philosophy, blue is the color of pure mind - the mind that is uncluttered by thought. In stillness, you can find pure mind.

Blue energy is a guiding energy, enabling you to find a sense of faith and trust.

Red, orange, yellow, and green guide your attention towards movement, activity, relationships, and things that can be observed on a material plane.

Blue moves your attention to the subtle vibrations that move through all of life.

As you unfold the petals of your throat chakra, you find the seat of creativity. You communicate with ease and clarity. You begin to express your authentic self.

Throat Chakra Color Blue and Creativity

If you are like most people, you associate creativity with the second chakra color orange. And that is true to a certain degree.

The second chakra is a seat of creative energy where we create another human being.

But this process is not conscious. It is creativity coming from our body without our use of will or mind, emotion, or spark of genius. After all, we do not consciously create legs or arms of a tiny baby. It is an unconscious process.

Blue energy on the other hand, is conscious creativity. It is creativity at a higher-mind level.

It is when your personal insights merge with collective consciousness and you draw upon the wisdom of the Universe.

When your fifth chakra is open, you experience waves of creative energy, you receive flashes of creative insights and you are propelled to create.

This is a conscious creation and you utilize the energies of all your lower chakras. You access the Divine and the universal knowledge and you integrate it with your personal truth. When you express your truth (whether it is writing, dancing, singing, or painting), you create from the throat chakra.

What others said about throat chakra color blue....

I like soft blue, navy blue, sometimes green blue. Blue brings about a variety of emotions-most of them positive but a few negative. Blue gives off a certain warmth, peacefulness, security. However, it can also be a sad color (such as in feeling blue or singing the blues). I imagine most people who like the color blue are peaceful, meditative people, but sometimes they clash with people who have more fiery personalities. I like the blue of the ocean and the color of the sky the best.

The color blue has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. Blue comes in so many shades and I never get tired of seeing it. When shopping for clothes I always end up with everything blue without even trying. When I look at the sky it has so many shades of blue. I look at the sky and feel peace because of the color. I also feel God's love for me. To me a world without the color of blue would be a sad place. I know that not everyone loves this color like I do but that is what makes us all unique.

I love the blue color and feels it's a color that goes well in most outfits specially with a pair of denims. When I wear blue I feel calm and cool. Blue reminds me of the blue sky. Reminds me of freedom and summer holidays. Green blue reminds me of the peacock feather and a rustic carpet. When a person chooses blue, it does not define her, however blue color should be used carefully in design or clothing just like any other color.

Blue represents the limitless sky and the vast ocean – blue epitomizes infinite possibilities. When I put on blue clothing, I feel like anything could happen. Blue fills me with the cool confidence to try something new, and with the determination to complete whatever I set my mind to. Whether it’s the dark navy of the night sky or the bright teal of the tropical sea, blue characterizes opportunities, poise, and purpose.
