What a “BLUE” door means

Standard

blue door Welcome my friends. A door always should say: “Welcome”. This door is blue for a very specific reason. For many Native American people, the blue door prevents any evil presence from entering your home. I have seen light blue, medium blue and even turquoise doors when I was visiting New Mexico. In fact, not everyone believes that the color will keep evil at bay, they merely paint them this color because it’s purely a “decorative” statement.

Next to the adobe walls, the blue door speaks loudly. It is a pretty sight, seeing them dotting the landscape in contrast to the native plants which are sometimes drab in color. This door looks well-worn and rustic, but it still marks the entrance to a happy dwelling. This color is delightful to the eye and speaks volumes.

Many years ago, I lived in an adobe style home. It did NOT have a blue door. The owners painted the house an ugly red color, the color of pain and suffering. Red is an angry color, and is appropriate for a car, a dress, or even a neck tie. Red should NOT be used by house painters. As a matter of fact, I did NOT sleep well in the house, and only lived there a couple of months. Do I think the color of the home had a negative affect on myself and the others who lived there? I am certain of that.

I have studied subtle energies through the teachings of gifted psychics and guides. When you sense “something” is not quite right, then that instinct is usually correct. Now when I go to a home, and I get a creepy feeling, I simply make a lame excuse and leave. It is no use being in a place that gives you the “Heebee Geebees”.  An unhappy home is a place of misery and suffering, and no amount of soap, paint, or cleansing can erase all the unhappiness that is trapped in the walls.

I don’t suggest you go running around to look for the perfect blue color for your door. Color is a personal and individual choice. If you do travel to New Mexico, you will see many blue doors, especially in Santa Fe and Taos. It is part of the fabric that makes those towns so unique. The blue doors certainly add to the charm of these places. Now you know the secret that even some of the residents don’t know about. The blue door, will help keep bad spirits out, and give you peaceful dreams. What could be more perfect?

    • Yes… there is a traditonal story from the Navajo people. It is about “Corpse Sickness”. The author Tony Hillerman describes it in a few of his books. The TRADITIONAL Navajo do believe that a corpse should never be touched, if you handle a dead body, a disease that affects the body and soul can attack you. There is some scientific evidence to back this story or belief. A human body starts to decay almost immediately after death. A body left out in the elements, can give off a “Toxic Flora” that when inhaled can make you very sick.
      In fact, if a family member dies in a hogan, it is burned so no one will catch the corpse sickness. This must scare the holy hell out of little kids, and adults. My friend who is Navajo won’t go into a thrift shop, because the clothes may have come from a dead person. Thrift shops are way off limits! After he told me this, it really gave me the creeps…
