Reichel-Dolmatoff – Amazonian Cosmos - The symbolism of blue
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Gerardo Reichel-Dolmatoff – Amazonian Cosmos
The colour blue occupies a somewhat ambivalent position. Being associated with the Milky Way and the hallucinatory sphere, it is the colour of communication, of the contact with the supernatural and the extra-terrestrial. As such, blue can be "good" or "bad" because it depends on the intention of the contact and of the results that develop from it.
Blue is also the colour of tobacco smoke and of incense, another means of communication. Thought and reflection belong to the colour blue, and in human anatomy the head is associated with this colour.
