Expression Blue (Aura Colour)

An excerpt from Aura Colour Therapy, written by Omanisa

 

Expression Blue has depth and sparkle, like an azure blue sky reflected on the surface of a lake, with little glints of white sparkles and streaks, where sunlight strikes the water. On a feeling level, it feels energetic and lively, like a passionate flow of conversation, with animated hand and body movements being used to convey meaning. This colour is particularly therapeutic for anyone wearing grey colours in or around the Throat Chakra.

Often worn by writers, artists, vocalists, journalists, public speakers and people working in the communication industry, Expression Blue gives us a knack for composing with words and communicating with others. Besides representing a personality type, Expression Blue can appear in the aura when we are going through a temporary phase of heightened creative self-expression.

This colour liberates us by giving us a voice. Our voice is our personal truth; our way of being in the world, expressing our opinions and contributing to a global discussion. Our personal truth is a conglomerate of our values, beliefs, ideas, ideals, attitudes and ethics. When we know our personal truth, we know who we are and who we are not; we know what we stand for and what is important to us. The phrase ‘being true to ourselves’ means living according to our personal truth

Before we can express our personal truth, we need to know what it is. Expression Blue helps us slow down and hear our inner voice. Often, we use creativity as a means to access this inner wisdom. If we cut off from our creativity and our inner voice for too long, we loose touch with our true selves. Sometimes we become too busy and forget to be still enough to hear the creative voice that wants to express through us. This can also happen when we use all our energy being creative for others instead of for ourselves. Creative people need to ensure they are making time for creative reconnection with themselves. They must take care that the pressure to perform on a creative level does not destroy their love for creating. The creative process is highly therapeutic and just as important as the creative end product. Creative expression sets the inner child free, bringing us a joy that nourishes the soul. Expression Blue can be evidence of creative skills being used well, but it can just as easily be a timely reminder to reconnect with our inner muse.

This colour challenges us to speak our truth without violating the right of others to do the same. When Expression Blue is well balanced within us, we celebrate differences between people rather than feeling threatened by them. Everybody has their own personal truth and each person’s truth is true for them, even if it is not true for someone else. It is important to know ourselves and share our truth via self-expression without hiding away for fear of being judged. Creative expression is a healthy way to discover, explore and express our personal truth without forcing it on others.
Our personal truth may differ from that of family members and friends or the society we live in. When people around us hold vastly different views from our own, it can be difficult to maintain loyalty to our own truth. Other people may judge us or put pressure on us to conform to their views. We can then become lost, confused and uncertain about who we really are, especially if our personal truth was not that strong and clear to begin with, or we tend to have trouble maintaining personal boundaries.
When people feel threatened by differences of opinion and belief, they can become judgemental and argumentative. They say ‘my truth is right, yours is wrong’. Some people go out of their way to avoid contact with people who have a truth different from their own, almost as though they are afraid their own personal truth will be contaminated. Some parents take this approach with their children, carefully shielding them from any unwanted influences.
Exposure to different perspectives, however, helps us grow. In deciding who we choose to be as individuals, we occasionally need to release old opinions and values because they no longer fit us. Perhaps they never really suited us in the first place. Part of developing our personal truth involves consciously deciding whether to keep or discard conditioning from childhood, family and society. As we establish our personal truth, we make decisions about what works for us and what does not. This is an ongoing process.
People who wear too much Expression Blue can become unbalanced and tip over into Zealous Blue, or they may become a little obsessed with telling the truth at all costs. These people self-disclose information that other people really do not need to hear, often to their own detriment and the dismay of others around them. Shaman Blue is an excellent therapeutic colour for excessive or inappropriate honesty.

Shaman Blue

Shaman Blue is a deep green-blue, like the ocean under a night sky, the blue in the eye of a peacock’s feather, or the piercing gaze of a person with spiritual power, as they look right through you and deep into your soul. Seasoned Red is the yang or male equivalent of this yin, feminine colour.

In traditional cultures, the shaman was the tribal healer, spiritual counsellor and priest, all rolled into one. People who wear Shaman Blue as a personality colour are modern shamans with a great deal of spiritual knowledge and wisdom who can provide spiritual guidance and healing to others. Some play this role as part of their profession, while others are informal shamans who assist friends and family members. Shamans help people reconnect with nature, their true purpose, deeper feelings, inner wisdom, spirit guides and loved ones who have passed. Like a bridge or a channel through which spiritual energy can flow, they connect spirit with people, and people with spirit.

Shaman Blue can be stimulated by personality traits and attitudes that reflect shamanic spiritual wisdom. The wisdom of this colour was taught to me by my female shamanic spirit guide Khryse, who wears this colour in her hair and clothing. Khryse taught me how to walk though darkness without fear and to always look for the gift in disguise. Every situation, no matter how dark and difficult, contains hidden pearls of wisdom.

Life is like an ocean filled with pearls waiting to be discovered, but sometimes we have to dive through darkness to find them. If we become intimidated by darkness, we are hardly likely to discover pearls! When we focus fearful or negative attention on darkness, the darkness looms in our mind like an oppressive shadow blocking out light. If we focus our attention on the positive and empowering aspects of a situation, the darkness recedes. As the Hawaiian shamans say, energy flows where attention goes.

I will always remember an important Shaman Blue lesson from Khryse about using my attention wisely. As I sat in her healing room one day, she brought a series of highly unsavoury women in to the room and asked me¬†what I saw. I saw ugliness, for the most part and told her so. “Look deeper” she replied and so I did. Again and again, she insisted I take another look. Eventually, I began to see a beautiful light in these women’s eyes; a light that eclipsed all the ugliness, making it fall away and cease to exist.

Now I teach other people how to find and empower the light and beauty hidden behind the ugliness in others. Think of someone you are struggling with and imagine them standing in front of you. Look deeply into their eyes and keep looking. Look past the ugliness. Keep looking until you find something beautiful and feed this beauty with your attention until it grows and becomes all you see. Next time you are with this person, remember this meditation. Bring this person’s inner light to life for yourself, by actively engaging with and acknowledging it. Ask yourself what this person has come into your life to teach you.

Khryse taught me to be mindful of the stories I tell myself about life, events, other people and myself. The stories we tell ourselves shape our view of reality, giving rise to specific feelings and influencing the way we manage the events that occur in our lives. We can tell good stories that are honest and empowering; stories that uplift us and help us to find strength and beauty, even when times are difficult. Or we can tell bad stories where we are cast in the role of powerless or persecuted victim, stories that drain our personal power.

Shaman Blue often appears in the aura when we are facing challenges. In these situations, outcomes and circumstances do not matter as much as personal conduct. During Shaman Blue phases, we are reminded to conduct ourselves with integrity, avoid playing the victim, keep our ego in check and stay focussed on what we can learn from the situation, rather than worrying about appearances or who is winning and losing.

We may not always be able to control what happens in the world around us, but we can transform our perspective in order to stay empowered. If the way you are looking at something is weakening you, change the way you are looking at it. Make a new story. Find a new perspective. Reframe your problems and mistakes in a new light, by seeing them as challenges and opportunities to learn and grow.

Finally, Shaman Blue teaches us the value and power of discretion, showing us how to be quiet and still, especially on a verbal level. If you have a tendency to spill all your secrets, blurt out secrets that belong to others, gossip or speak unwisely without integrity, discretion or self-awareness, Shaman Blue could be therapeutic for you.

Old souls with a lot of spiritual power and experience tend to wear colours like Shaman Blue, Seasoned Red, Home Brown, Patience Green, Holistic Green, Silver, Gold and Honour Blue. If you are interested in developing shamanic skills, these colours may be of assistance to you.

The High Priestess card is the tarot equivalent to this colour.
