Shades of Blue

Blue is calming. It can be strong and steadfast or light and friendly. Almost everyone likes some shade of the color blue.
A natural color, from the blue of the sky, blue is a universal color. The cool, calming effect of blue makes time pass more quickly and it can help you sleep. Blue is a good color for bedrooms. However, too much blue could dampen spirits.
In many different cultures blue is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.
The ancient Egyptians used lapis lazuli to represent heaven.
Put some blue in your life when you want:
    •    calm and relaxation to counteract chaos or agitation
    •    to open the flow of communication
    •    to broaden your perspective in learning new information
    •    solitude and peace
