The colour indigo is the colour of intuition and perception and is helpful in opening the third eye. It promotes deep concentration during times of introspection and meditation, helping you achieve deeper levels of consciousness. It is a colour which relates to the “New Age” – the ability to use the Higher Mind to see beyond the normal senses with great powers of perception. It relies on intuition rather than gut feeling.
Indigo is a deep midnight blue. It is a combination of deep blue and violet and holds the attributes of both these colours.
Service to humanity is one of the strengths of the colour indigo. Powerful and dignified, indigo conveys integrity and deep sincerity.
The colour meaning of indigo reflects great devotion, wisdom and justice along with fairness and impartiality. It is a defender of people’s rights to the end.
Structure creates identity and meaning for indigo. In fact an indigo person cannot function without structure – it throws them right off balance. Organisation is very important to them and they can be quite inflexible when it comes to order in their lives.
Indigo loves rituals and traditions, religion and the institutional system, conforming to things that have worked in the past while planning for the future.
Indigo stimulates right brain or creative activity and helps with spatial skills. It is a dramatic colour relating to the world of the theatre, which, during times of stress becomes the drama queen, making a mountain out of a mole hill!
The negative colour meaning of indigo relates to fanaticism and addiction. Its addiction encompasses everything from a need for recognised qualifications to a need for illegal drugs, from the workaholic to the religious fanatic.
Indigo can be narrow-minded, intolerant and prejudiced.
Positive keywords include integrity and sincerity, structure and regulations, highly responsible, idealism, obedience, highly intuitive, practical visionary, faithful, devotion to the truth and selflessness.
Negative keywords include being fanatical, impractical, intolerant and inconsiderate, depressed, fearful, self-righteous, a conformist, addictive, bigoted and avoiding conflict.
Again this is my first post, hope you enjoyed it. I would be posting more on the colour indigo which I find very interesting later on. Stay here and watch out.
