From a scientific perspective, blue possesses a short wavelength of around 450 (nm) and high frequency of 6.66 (1014 Hz), allowing it to be perceived more readily by the human eye compared to other colours in the spectrum. Its visibility is heightened, explaining why a YouGov study revealed blue to be the world's most favoured colour.

 How to Use Blue for Protection

To safeguard against ill fortune or harm associated with the evil eye, various cultures have long revered the colour blue for its protective properties. Blue objects or symbols, such as beads or eyes, deflect malicious intentions directed by those who cast an evil eye.

Symbolically, blue assumes a vital role in safeguarding against malevolent forces, offering a potent shield of protection.

In the realm of witchcraft, blue serves to lessen anxiety, fears, and paranoia. While black veils all energies and keeps them at a distance, providing comprehensive protection, blue offers a different kind of shield—one that is protective yet enabling. It fosters grounding and protection, banishing negative energies while promoting calmness and tranquillity.

The ancient Egyptians recognised blue as a conduit of magickal powers, employing blue amulets and talismans to ward off evil spirits and protect against harm. In magickal and energetic practices, blue holds versatile applications for protection. 

The colour blue possesses a profound significance in various magickal and energetic endeavours, particularly when it comes to safeguarding oneself. Below, you will find a few methods through which you can incorporate the colour blue into your protective rituals:

1. Blue Visualisation: Begin by closing your eyes and envisaging a luminous, azure light enveloping you or forming a safeguarding shield around your being. Allow this radiant blue light to serve as a protective barrier, repelling any negative energy and ensuring your safety. Maintain this visualisation for several minutes, allowing the blue light to fortify and strengthen your protective shield.

2. Blue Protection Charm or Amulet: Craft or purchase a protective charm or amulet fashioned from materials of a blue hue. Consider utilising a small pouch containing protective herbs, crystals, written affirmations that embody your intention for protection, or an evil eye amulet. Carry or wear this charm as a constant reminder of your purpose and as a symbol of the protective energy inherent in the colour blue.

3. Ritual Bathing: Infuse your bathwater with blue-coloured herbs or flowers, such as dried butterfly pea flowers or cornflowers. As you soak, visualise the blue water cleansing your aura and invoking the protection you seek. Focus on your intention and allow the water to imbue you with the qualities associated with the colour blue.

The Empowering Essence of Blue

Blue is a hue renowned for its associations with nobility, power, and resilience. It is frequently donned in regal and leadership attire, emanating a sense of authority and confidence.

In the realms of magick, blue serves as a symbol of the mind's potency and intellect, believed to heighten mental clarity and concentration. 

When the human eye beholds the colour blue, it evokes a distinctive reaction within the brain, inducing positive effects on mood, emotions, and cognitive prowess. For instance, a study revealed that exposure to blue light before sleeping improved sleep quality and fostered heightened alertness the following morning. One study found that households with blue bedrooms had the best night’s sleep compared to any other colour. This is the blue colour, not blue light from devices. The blue light from devices promotes wakefulness. 

Further research has demonstrated that the colour blue aids in stress reduction, anxiety alleviation, blood pressure moderation, and even enhances memory retention and learning capabilities. 

Moreover, blue is frequently chosen in therapeutic environments to promote relaxation and mitigate symptoms of depression and anxiety. With its tranquilising influence, blue possesses a calming and soothing impact on the mind, becoming synonymous with peace and serenity.

The colour blue is inherently linked to the heavens and water, both emblematic of purity and purification. It also reduces anxiety and repels negative energies.

A Guide to Using Blue in Divination & Intuition

Within the realms of witchcraft and the occult, the colour blue possesses a profound influence associated with psychic abilities, intuition, and divination. 

Blue has long been intertwined with the divine and the sacred in numerous spiritual traditions. It symbolises the heavens and the boundless expanse of the sky, embodying the infinite and the eternal. 

Furthermore, blue serves as a representation of spiritual insight and wisdom. Often associated with the third eye or the pineal gland, it signifies spiritual intuition and heightened perception.

In certain practices, blue is also linked to Neptune, a mystical and spiritual force. Neptune is attributed to dreams, intuition, and the subconscious, and incorporating the colour blue is believed to unlock the powers associated with this planet. 

Moreover, blue embodies truthfulness, trust, and wisdom. Utilising blue in divination readings enhances the authenticity of the experience, enabling you to convey the truth. This colour boasts a profound connection to spirituality and other realms, symbolising the well of knowledge known as Urd, the birthplace of Runes. 

To incorporate the colour blue into your divination practices and enhance your intuition, insight, and clarity, consider the following approaches: 

- Blue Candles: Light a blue candle during divination sessions to establish a serene and focused atmosphere. Position the candle nearby or in front of you as you engage in techniques such as scrying, pendulum dowsing, tarot, bone, she-oak seed pods or rune readings. The calming blue flame fosters a receptive ambiance for your divination work.

How to Incorporate the Mysticism of Blue in Spells and Ritual 

The colour blue evokes a sense of depth, mystery, and the enigmatic. It symbolises the boundless expanse of the universe and the profound power of the subconscious mind. 

Within the realms of magick, blue holds significant importance in spells and rituals that involve communication with spirits and entities from the ethereal plane. 

Blue serves as a conduit for healing, tranquillity, and truth. Light blue is intimately linked to the throat chakra, which, when energised, empowers you to express your genuine self without guilt or shame. This vibrant energy enables love to radiate from your words, actions, and even your gaze. 

The throat chakra often requires frequent clearing and alignment, as it is a delicate energy centre easily thrown off balance by distorting the truth, excessive apologies, or failing to assert oneself. 

The third eye chakra is associated with dark blue. It represents intuition, wisdom, and higher consciousness. When this chakra is balanced, it enhances clarity, insight, and the ability to perceive the unseen.

Dark blue serves as a reminder to explore our inner selves, embrace intuition, and connect with the depths of our being, unlocking a realm of profound spiritual awareness.

Using Blue in Ancestors & Deity Rituals to Harness the Power of the Divine 

In numerous spiritual traditions, the colour blue is regarded as a profound symbol of the higher self and the divine. It represents the profound journey toward enlightenment and transcendence. This significance is evident in the depictions of goddesses associated with wisdom, enlightenment, and spiritual insight, such as the revered Hindu goddess Saraswati, who is often adorned in blue attire. 

Blue has long been intertwined with the concept of the mother goddess, symbolising nurturing, fertility, and the life-giving force of nature. In ancient Egypt, the goddess Isis, the mother of all creation and protector of the Pharaohs, was frequently portrayed draped in blue. Similarly, within Celtic tradition, the goddess Brigid was revered as the deity of poetry, healing, and childbirth, with the colour blue closely associated with her.

The association between the colour blue and Mother Mary can be traced back to the artistic traditions of medieval Europe. During this era, colour symbolism played a crucial role in conveying religious and spiritual concepts. Blue was often used to depict the heavens, symbolising the divine and the spiritual realm. By representing Mother Mary adorned in a blue mantle, artists were able to convey her spiritual significance and profound connection to the divine. 

Blue has long been linked to the power and authority of kings and rulers, often utilised to symbolise their divine right to govern. In ancient Egypt, the god Amun, the king of the gods and ruler of the universe, was frequently depicted adorned in blue. 

In the Hindu tradition, Lord Vishnu, responsible for preserving the universe, is often depicted with blue skin, signifying his divine power. Additionally, Lord Krishna, associated with love, joy, and spiritual enlightenment, is also associated with the colour blue. In Buddhism, blue represents the vastness and infinity of the universe. 

The colour blue holds sacred significance to Odin. Incorporating blue into rituals can invoke his wisdom and knowledge. Odin himself wore a distinctive blue cloak, and even when he appeared in mortal form, people recognised him by this iconic garment. 

Blue also holds profound connections to the element of water, a potent force within witchcraft and the occult. Water is frequently utilised in ritual baths and offered to spirits and deities, with the colour blue representing the power and fluidity of the water element. 

Moreover, blue is deeply intertwined with ocean magick and sea deities. If your ancestors lived near the sea or had a strong bond with it, offering something blue can be a fitting tribute to their memory.

Blue is a prevalent colour in the sky, the sea, and bodies of water, and has long been associated with the spiritual and mystical aspects of nature. In ancient cultures, the sky represented the heavens and the realm of the divine, with the colour blue seen as a representation of this profound connection. This explains why goddesses associated with the sky or the heavens, such as the Greek goddess Athena, were often portrayed adorned in blue. 

The colour blue is also utilised to represent the spiritual world in Aboriginal culture. The Dreamtime, or the spiritual realm, is perceived as the abode of ancestral spirits. Blue is employed to depict the spirit world and the potent energy of these ancestral beings. 

Aboriginal art often portrays the Wandjina, a powerful ancestral spirit from the Kimberley region of Western Australia, as a large white figure with blue eyes and blue lines adorning its body, symbolising the spirit's energy and power.

Incorporating the colour blue into ancestor magick rituals can facilitate communication, connection, and honour to your ancestors. Here are some ways you can integrate the colour blue into your ancestor and deity magick practices: 

Ancestor Offerings: Prepare offerings for your ancestors, such as their favourite food, drink, or objects connected to them or the deity. Arrange these offerings on a blue plate or in blue containers, infusing them with the energy of the colour blue. Blue represents the link between the earthly and spiritual realms, bridging the gap between you and your ancestors or deity.

Divination Tools: Utilise divination tools that incorporate the colour blue, such as a scrying mirror with a blue frame, blue-coloured runes, or a blue pendulum. These tools can assist in facilitating communication and receiving messages from your ancestors or deity. Focus on the blue colour and allow it to guide you in interpreting their guidance and wisdom.
