In power, Blues radiate love, acceptance, and forgiveness. These compassionate beings will even befriend those whom others find unlovable. Blues look for the good in people. They will give everyone many second chances. No matter what mistakes people make, Blues will love and forgive them. In power, Blues also trust and follow their intuition. Out of power, Blues frequently doubt their self-worth. Their greatest fear is being alone, abandoned and unloved. They want deeply to be loved, but they often have trouble receiving or believing that they are loved. When Blues don't feel loved they can become overly emotional, dramatic, and consumed with self-pity. They become victims and martyrs. Out of power, they use guilt to manipulate others, hoping that if people feel guilty enough, they will give Blues more love and attention. Blues just want to feel loved and appreciated. The two most important priorities in a Blue's life are spirituality and relationships. More than anything in the world, the devoted Blues want to be in loving, committed, and emotionally connected relationships. Blues can be the most loyal and supportive mates of all the Life Colors and they need partners who are just as loyal and monogamous. Examples of Blues are: Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Meg Ryan, Christina Applegate, Kate Hudson (all are Blue/Yellow with Violet) and Elizabeth Taylor (Blue/Violet).
Your Life Purpose
Blues are nurturing, supportive counselors and caretakers. Their life purpose is to give love, to teach love, and to learn about love – especially learning that they themselves are loved. Their priorities are love, relationships, and spirituality. The spiritual Blues live from their hearts and emotions. Actually they are the most emotional people on the planet, crying when they are happy, sad, angry, or sometimes for no reason at all.

Some of the roles a Blue finds fulfilling are teacher, marriage and family counselor, educator, clergy, volunteer, nurse, childcare worker, parent, homemaker, and social worker.
Love & Relationships
Blues are among the most nurturing and devoted partners. They live for love. One of their greatest joys and sources of fulfillment is knowing that they are in a loving, committed, and monogamous relationship. When Blues fall in love, there is nothing they will not do to keep their relationship together. What Blues needs from their life partner is love, monogamy, loyalty, faithfulness, emotional connection, mutual trust, and long-term commitment. Blues are often highly emotional beings so they need partners who are compassionate, kind, and understanding. Emotional intimacy is much more important to Blues than physical intimacy. They desire a strong emotional and supportive bond with their partner and a harmonious, spiritual, and love-filled home – and for it all to last forever.
Careers & Jobs
Because Blues are here to be in service, they are usually drawn to the helping professions such as teaching, counseling, and nursing. They work best one-on-one and heart-to-heart with people. (Although Violets are also drawn toward helping people, they work more often with groups rather than with individuals.) Because Blues feel that love and money do not mix, they have created some of the lowest paid positions in the professional fields. (Most service organizations are also nonprofit organizations.) Blues do not believe they should profit from helping others. Learning that prosperity, love, and spirituality can coexist harmoniously is a major lesson for them. Any occupation that allows them to help other people appeals to Blues. Also, they appreciate the opportunity to spend time at home creating a loving, cozy, and nurturing environment. Occupations that appeal to Blues include the following: Teacher, educator, Volunteer, Nurse, Religious or church helper, Psychologist, Clergy, Social worker, Nun or priest, Childcare worker, Homemaker, Secretary, Parent, Astrologer, Housekeeper, Psychic, Waiter or Waitress, Marriage & family counselor, Assistant or director at nonprofit organizations.
Money & Abundance
People and relationships are more important to Blues than money, so they often struggle financially, choosing low-paying, service-oriented jobs. Because money is not a priority, Blues are usually fearful of not having enough, especially when they have families to support. In addition, it is easier for them to complain, suffer, and dramatize their hard work and sacrifices than it is for them to ask for a raise. Because Blues are very good givers but not very good receivers, one challenge for them is learning to receive money. They usually feel that their services should come from the heart, not from a desire for money. They commonly feel that being spiritual means being opposed to having material wealth. Even though Blues are happy being givers, they need to learn how to receive. By never learning to receive, they are cheating others out of the joy of giving and are, to a certain extent, looking down on them. They are, in a sense, saying, “I am wonderful and prosperous enough to give to you. You, however, are not prosperous or powerful enough to give to me.” The most loving and empowering gesture a Blue can make is to allow others to feel prosperous, generous, and capable of giving. This empowers others to feel good about their capabilities. Blues can also feel guilty having more than their friends or families have. They subconsciously feel they must suffer with everyone else not being prosperous or in harmonious, satisfying relationships. If friends are suffering financially, Blues will either empathize and complain about their similar financial situations or give them money to help them out. Blues will also try to help everyone first before they will help themselves. They feel that sacrificing their needs and putting others first shows how loving they are. They often fear being unloved and alone or of being seen as selfish if they succeed. As long as Blues feel they must help everyone else first, they are destined to suffer. Their bravest and most loving action is to first live their own dreams of abundance, love, health, and happiness, which will inspire others to live their dreams, too. (What motivates Blues is discovering that their actions will help others.) Blues also need to learn that love, happiness, prosperity, and spirituality can all be connected. Success Blues define their success by how many people love them and by how many people they have been able to help. The quantity and quality of friends, the length and quality of their marriages, the depth of their compassion and loyalty to those they love, and their dedication to their spirituality are what they consider to be most important.
Blues do not focus much energy on their physical bodies; therefore, they are not motivated to exercise. Walking to the mailbox is usually the extent of their exercise program. They rationalize a thousand reasons why they do not have time to exercise. Because they rarely send energy to their bodies, Blues usually have cold hands and feet. (See in chapter 5 the inner conflict created with a Blue/Yellow aura. Yellows need to exercise to feel happy and healthy.) One physical weak spot for Blues is the throat area. Throat problems are created by years of choking back hurt and swallowing tears. Blue women can also experience problems with their breasts and reproductive systems. They create challenges such as vaginal infections, cramps, cysts, and ovarian or breast cancer because they typically carry feelings of guilt, anger, shame, or inadequacy regarding themselves, their relationships, or sex. Obesity is also common among Blues, who often doubt they are attractive or sexy. When they fear not being loved, Blues will often put on layers of fat for protection, particularly below the waist to protect their sexuality. Extra weight also keeps Blues grounded and in their bodies. Walking, breathing, and meditating are healthy activities for Blues. Releasing past guilt and the fear of not being loved will also keep them healthy. When Blues learn to give themselves as much love as they give to everyone else, it will be easier for them to keep themselves healthy.
