THE COLOR INDIGO
Symbolizes Intuition, Meditation and Contemplation
Indigo is the color of the deep midnight sky, a blend of blue and violet, quite magical really. It symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery and spiritual realization; and can deepen any mood, so it must be used with care.
While the color blue is representative of communications with others, indigo turns the blue inward to increase personal though, profound insight and instant understanding of self. While blue tends to work quickly, indigo is all but instantaneous. Inventors use indigo skills for inspirations that seem to simply “come out of the blue”…no pun intended…
Add the color indigo into your life when you are looking to:
- focus on personal issues
- develop your intuition
- find solitude and inner communication
The color indigo is also representative of faithfulness, loyalty, openness, freedom (light indigo), responsibility and respect for others (dark indigo).
Therapeutic uses include calming, activates the digestive system and circulation of fluids in the body; it relaxes and combats anxiety and discouragement.
Indigo Gemstone Properties
