The color blue affects our mind rather than our physical body. It is a soothing and appeasing color. Light blue will help us concentrate and calm down whereas stronger blues will stimulate clarity of thought. As a spectrum of hues, blue is linked to intelligence, communication, serenity and trust.
Blue hue gemstones include Amazonite, aquamarine, apatite and blue lace agate. Amazonite calms our nervous system, helps us filter information and combine logic with intuition. Blue lace agate helps balance our throat chakra and enables us to vocalise suppressed emotions. The peaceful vibrations emanating from it are so strong that it eliminates any feelings of anger. Apatite is linked to strong spiritual guidance, helps us with public speaking and opens our throat chakra.
Symbols to guide your practice
The triangle is one of the most ancient and versatile symbols. Depending on where its point is looking its symbolism changes completely. Ranging from the pyramids which represent the higher spiritual desires of all things to the representation of the basic elements. Three is the number of the triangle representing emotion, intuition and psychic faculty.
This pyramid is the Tetractys, for the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, it symbolizes the musical, arithmetic and geometric ratios upon which the universe was constructed.
With every line holding a different meaning.
1st row from the top: The single point represents wisdom and the divine dimension
2nd row: Represents the first dimension, two points signaling the power of division, representing movement and impulse, which lead to courage and strength.
3rd row: Represents the second dimension, that of Harmony, which is the unity of physical beauty and mental balance.
4th row: Represents the four points that connect represent the four basic elements, earth, air, fire and water.
The circle as a shape is so simple and apparent all around us and yet so strong and perfect. The symbolism it carries transcends cultures and religions. In sacred geometry it signifies unity and oneness, its beginning and its ending are one, it does not create division, it is complete. Just like the cyclical nature of existence, it represents the unending, the constant movement that encompasses everything including space and time while containing all the energy raised in it. These qualities justify its identification as the symbol of the divine.
