Bella Bleue,Beautiful Blue
Blue is a color that speaks deeply about who I am.
I have big blue eyes.
My favorite color is blue.
My favorite places in nature are up in the mountains near the blue sky or by the ocean blue.
My bedroom is blue.
My car is blue.
I wear a blue sapphire ring.
My wedding dress had blue flowers and my bridesmaids wore blue.
My son has big blue eyes that look like mine.
My husband’s eyes are blue.
Coincidentally, I’m often described as having a blue aura:
“Cool, calm, and collected. Caring, loving, love to help others, sensitive, intuitive” that’s me…Well most of the time!
This blue aura describes the characteristics that motivated me to answer what I feel was part of my calling in life: For 8 years, before becoming a stay-at-home
mom (now for 6 years), I was a hospital chaplain–I provided spiritual and emotional support to the chronically ill , newly diagnosed, and dying patients I had the honor of meeting and often their families as well.
Furthermore, I’m searching to find ways to share healing and inspiration with others (why this blog exists) and blue relates to the throat chakra which represents health…what I want to encourage in us all. And it speaks of self expression: I’m hoping my sharing will encourage others to share or more importantly look deeper into themselves and discover even more fully the wondrous miracles they are.
And blue has nourished my faith. When I was a teen my mom gave me a picture of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. She is dressed in a shiny blue dress. I was struck by it in a way I hadn’t been with other spiritual images. It has been a wonderful gift to look to her as a woman and a mother. She has helped me understand that the Divine, who I call God, watches over all of us with a great love. This love shines through very deeply when we share our care for one another with each other. God is our care-giver: God has created our world and all that is in it to inspire us, heal us, teach us, and nourish us.
When I began writing this blog, I thought telling my story was what I was being asked to do…Do you ever get a feeling inside, that you just have to do something? That’s what being asked to do is like for me…Telling my story is part of the answer. The other part that I’ve discovered so far is to share what moves me spiritually. By doing this I hope that each and every one of you who come to visit will discover what an amazing, awesome, incredible wonder you are! I hope you discover a deeper sense of yourself each time you visit!
Blessings to you each and every day, Erin, Bella Bleue
