22 May What’s in the name
Is there a reason for the name Blulight? I am often asked.
The short answer is Yes.
However my answer varies depending on whom I am with.
Firstly, in the company of coaches, trainers, learning & development professionals, I often shared that as we are in the business of helping people improve their lives, professionally guiding and assisting people to gain insights, shedding light on where it’s needed, and sometimes attaining enlightenment along way. Hence the “light” bit.
As for Blu, it is the colour Blue; besides being a colour that I love, it also coincides as the lightest of our visible light. Helping people realise their higher selves is something we try to do, and as my mother says, when we do something, always try and aim for the best. Here a highest frequency is one ‘best’. Hence the colour Blue.
Blulight is what I see as a representation of the potential for all of us to be in our best light.
I will share more on where else is true behind the origin of this name in my next post.

In the company of my inner-works and mindfulness friends, I draw upon the colours of the rainbow yet again, as familiarity with the chakras and energy ﬁelds is higher within this community.
Blue reﬂects 2 of the chakra points – either the throat chakra (often depicted as turquoise, a lovely shade of blue) , or the third eye chakra (often depicted as midnight blue), both of which are energy ﬁelds within which represents our speech (throat) and our perspective through our mind’s eye (third eye). This I see it as a reminder to align our thoughts and words.
Being in the light serves to remind us of the birth of right thoughts giving rise to right words.
As coaches, ultimately all our chats hopefully result with positive action. Blulight is an aspiration of the alignment of Right Thoughts, Words and Deeds.

In the company of techies, the analytics, well generally the more analytically inclined, I ﬁnd in this crowd, “blueprint” as a term is commonly used, and hence I merely clarify that Blulight is intended to simply giving light onto your genetic blueprint. Lighting our blueprint, at the very least, serves as a reminder on who we are, sometimes it gives rise to better clarity on what we are in diﬀerent circumstances. The engineers and IT consultants I know seem to like this particular metaphor of Blulight.
End note: Truth be told…
Actually, parts 1, 2, 3 are all versions of the truth depending on the context. However if you are curious as to how I came up with this name… well, truth be told, Blulight is borne out of pragmatism. (You may refer to my earlier postings for parts 1 and 2.)
Also my husband jokes that I “stole” it from him! Both are actually true as well.
On the part of “stolen” idea, 10 years back, he set up a company in Australia called Bluﬁre and we commissioned my artistically talented brother to create a logo. On the practical part, Bluﬁre no longer exists today, however, I like the logo, adopted it, and the name evolved from this logo to suit a coaching service entity.
Parts 1, 2, 3 although are afterthoughts, are equally true in all the contexts described.
Revelation of the truth also points to the fact that I am basically a practical person at heart, and pragmatism is very much in-built in my philosophy surrounding coaching. Adopt a practical approach to coaching. Come to coaching only if you desire a change, and you want result.
