All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The blue energy is the primary of primaries, the basis from which all other colour arises. The way colour comes into the world is as blue light - and nestled within it are the concepts of duality and paradox so familiar to our blue planet. The blue energy can represent the male authority and the female nurturing, the conscious mind and the conscious heart, the outer and the inner, the polarity and its container, 'To be or not to be...'.

Bottle 2

And so we come to the end of an era in the history of humanity – and, more importantly, a new beginning. We're being challenged to up our game – to live up to the promise of our being part of humankind. Bottle 2, Peace Bottle, blue/blue relates to The High Priestess in the Tarot and is positioned on the middle pillar, Pillar of Equilibrium, on the Tree of Life. She is disciplined and in control of the pull of opposites: she represents the Soul, the height of Divine perfection. Blue thus extends the promise that we are able to penetrate the veil, to go beyond form and follow the flow of spirit.

Bottle 20

New beginnings can be frightening as it holds so much of the unknown – a place where trust is the answer. Trust is using the power of our mind to choose what is for the higher good, knowing that what appears to be dark or painful will be transformed. Mike Booth once described the essential message of Bottle 20, Star Child, blue\pink as 'My nurturing love is for all. I am re-valuation and integration. As one sequence is completed to your satisfaction you strive for the next. Love ever calls us onwards and upwards'.

Bottle 3

The healer of dissociation, trust returns connection with our deeper feelings and allows tenderness and safety to permeate our life; trust mends old heartbreaks. Bottle 3, Heart Bottle/Atlantean Bottle, blue/green is about expressing our feelings (green) and communicating (blue) these peacefully. The heart realm is the medium of connection with others and this bottle supports us to feel a greater sense of oneness with others. Blue then goes beyond individual fulfilment: we cannot really participate in the collective nature of our times until we are aware of the inherent oneness that exists between us. And we cannot know the oneness till our own hearts are freed.

Using any of the twenty bottles with blue as a fraction could support us to truly understand, to bring more clarity to the mind so that peace takes hold and we become more able to forge a fresh relationship between the analytical rational (mind) and the nurturing intuitive (heart).

Bottle 50

And so we let go of controlling the outcome or how the answer will come about: we make a choice and then trust that everything will work out for the best. When doubt creeps in, we are able to re-mind our self to make the choice that creates peace. No wonder the keynote for Bottle 50, an intense pale blue/pale blue (called El Morya) reads: 'Thy will be done. Being able to get out of the way to allow the communication to come through, rather than from the self'.

To understand is indeed to 'stand under' – to find oneself at the centre of the earth, the point toward which all human feet and all vegetable roots are directed and which sustains all: a place of 'no thing', of emptiness from where the peace that passeth all understanding originates. From here we are able to embrace all experience without the constraints of duality, without labels of good or bad, right or wrong.

In this act of removing self from the wheel of birthing, loving and dying, we are able to jump beyond our shadow, so to speak, and embark on our journey of healing our heart. Trusting our deepest desires we are able to follow our blueprint to live a harmonious, balanced existence.

One heart, one way.
