Symbols - What does heaven look like

Blue

There is no universal symbolism for Blue when it is used in cmbination with other colours.  If it is seen within the context of the rainbow, for example, it takes this symbolism.

Seen alone however, there seems to be general agreement that blue is a symbol of a person who is highly spiritually attuned. The following are examples of its use

  • Blue in Judaism: signifies a deeply spiritual person.  In the Torah the Israelites were commanded to put fringes, tzitzit  on the corners of their garments, and to weave within these fringes a "twisted thread of blue (tekhelet)".  
    According to several rabbinic sages, 'Staring at this colour aids in meditation', Many items in the Mishkan, the portable sanctuary in the wilderness, such as the menorah, many of the vessels, and the Ark of the Covenant, were 'covered with blue cloth' when transported from place to place 
  • 'Psychics' in other words those who can see the aura, indicate that someone with a blue aura is a person who is oriented toward spirituality.
