Blue: Increase Your Will Power
The Color Blue for Strengthening Will Power and Sense of Purpose
The color blue can strengthen will power and a healthy sense of purpose. Learn why the color is so popular and how it affects your personal psychology. Also see where blue falls on the color spectrum, compare how blue is used in two very different pieces of art, listen to blue in march music, be introduced to angelic and ascended beings serving on the blue frequency, and learn the colors of the Trinity.
How the Psychology is Affected by Blue
Judy Scott-Kemmis, a color consultant in Australia, keeps an entire website about the psychology of color. Here's what she says are the positive attributes of blue: loyalty, trust and integrity, tactful, reliability and responsibility, conservatism and perseverance, caring and concern, idealistic and orderly, authority, devotion and contemplation, peaceful and calm.
These qualities tend to hold true for many in varying degrees. Idealism, order, contemplation, and devotion are qualities of an INFJ-A personality type.
Through associations with the sky, the ocean and water, most people associate blue with openness, peace and tranquility. The benign cues make people feel safe about being creative and exploratory. Not surprisingly it is people's favourite colour."— Zhu, fellow researcher with UBC PhD candidate Ravi Mehta (Science Daily)
The Wavelength of Blue
The average human eye responds to light in the wavelength range of 390 to 750 nanometers (nm), with blue assigned to the 450-495 nm range.
We associate red with warmth and heat. Blue, near the opposite end of the spectrum with a higher frequency, has nearly the opposite characteristics: cool and calm.
Examples of Blue in Art
Blue, in art, is classified as a "cool" color, and certainly evokes feelings of peacefulness and calm. The affect can be altered, however, with diminutive shading. The following art works are examples of how blue can convey very different effects.
The landscapes in the paintings of Van Gogh and Aivasovky leave very different impressions. The blue in Van Gogh's painting is muted, lowering the overall frequency that one sees; whereas, Aivasovsky's landscape has a lot of white mixed in with the blue to "heighten" the overall appearance. The result is as different as depression and joy.
The Vibration of Blue in Music
If you need to increase your will power, try listening to marches. These are frequently used by the military to reinforce qualities of fearlessness and obedience. The following video is the First Baptist Church Choir of Hammond, Indiana, singing "Marching to Zion" composed by Robert Lowry (1826-1899).
The Metaphysical Significance of Blue
Having sought the practical applications of truth through spiritual studies and metaphysics for years, I have come to understand the significance of the color blue in my wardrobe and décor. Having blue in my physical world reinforces the will of God in my aura (the energy field around the body).
Will power is necessary to follow through and complete projects or goals and directly correlates with desire. Royal blue is known in spiritual studies as "the first ray," God's will "to be." A simple mantra for invoking God's will in your daily life is, "Not my will, not my will, but thine be done." (Luke 22:42 KJV)

Balancing Blue at the Heart
While you are increasing your will power, two other flames representing the Trinity must also increase, keeping the triune flame in balance. While God, the Father, is represented by the blue flame, the second person of the trinity is represented by the color yellow and stands for wisdom and illumination. The third color, representing the Holy Spirit is pink and carries the vibration of compassion and love.
Together, these three plumes of light spiral around each other and increase through good works, meditation, and purified emotions. When the spiral has increased to cover the entire physical body, the rate of spin accelerates and lifts the vibration of the entire body to the point where it is no longer physical. This new light body is perfect, experiencing neither disease nor death, and is the goal connected with "The Second Coming" and ascension.
Determination and Will Power are Keys to Success
Determination and will power make the difference between success and "just getting by" in life. Including the color blue in your environment and the elements suggested in this article can do much to change those less-than-desirable results that you may be experiencing. Counseling and journaling are wonderful tools, too, but seriously think about using a bright, royal blue in your wardrobe or home decorations, if you don't already. If you're already using the color, try including classical music, especially marches, as a focus to assist you in your goals.
