Seven Colors of Music

Blue is Love in Form

I am lifted on Wings of Song
To a place beyond the cares of the world.
Everything is good and right here.
Sunlight shines through the window;
I am happy and content.

Here heart energy is shaped
Into beauty; into form easily accessed.
Simply by experiencing them
I am lifted toward the Divine.

Here there is perfect Order and Structure,
Harmony and Simplicity;
Peace through Equality,
A place of clearness and serenity.

The four upper colors are each about Love in some way. The opened heart experiences earthly love in a balanced give and take. After a while the opened heart starts to become sensitive to higher forms of Love which manifest as Beauty and Truth. Beauty is primordial love energy made visual or aural. Truth is love energy experienced intellectually. At a deep level they are the same thing.

The heart that appreciates truth and beauty in form is experiencing the energy we are naming Blue. Whether that form be a painting, a symphony, or the mathematics of relativity or quantum mechanics, the soul is lifted to a higher place. The heart’s awareness begins to expand, to sense the possibility of unseen and unknown influences.

The realization of higher influences inspires beings with intelligence toward higher ethical behavior: honesty, responsibility, kindness, respect, etc. In terms of society, the ideal we call democracy is a striving toward implementing equality and fairness in societal structures.

The quest for truth motivates a Blue person’s life. He is a student of philosophy, at an amateur level at least. She loves independent thought and original ideas. She listens to other people’s opinions even if she doesn’t agree with them.

Corinne Heline writes, "The Blue ray is a force direct from lifts, exalts and inspires one toward even greater heights of endeavor and attainment. Green reaches outward; Blue lifts upward."1

Blue music has a deliberateness and a simplicity that encapsulate its power. Most often, the tempo is moderate or slow. There is often a recognizable, singable melody; a beautiful one. Think Shubert’s Ave Maria or Bach’s Air on the G String, or Beethoven’s Sonata No. 8. Deliberateness, purity, simplicity and structure by themselves are not sufficient to create Blue power, but they do seem to be necessary to convey that power. Whereas Green music is entirely at the heart level, Blue involves the intellect to some extent, or at least it awakens a higher awareness. Blue carries an intent that is not found in Green. When you hear blue music, if you are sensitive you will feel the depth of the longing for wisdom.

All the great composers contributed to the repertory of Blue energy music. Frederic Chopin perhaps typifies this genre in that so many of his piano pieces radiate the serene beauty that he is known for. Corinne Heline wrote that his primary color as a composer was a “mystic blue”.2
