Chakras and Colour Therapy

Home » Alternative Healing » Chakras and Colour Therapy

Meditation has given me the ability to maintain balance, especially during difficult times. As part of my meditation I will often work with my own energies and the healing qualities of Chakras.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word which when translated means disk or wheel. They are said to be the energy centres through which – energy flows through our bodies.

There are seven main Chakras that start at the top of the head down to the base of the spine. Each has its own vibrational frequency that is indicated by a colour.

1. The Crown – Spirituality -Violet
2. The Brow – Awareness – Indigo
3. The Throat – Communication – Blue
4. The Heart – Healing and Love – Green
5. The Solar Plexus – Wisdom – Yellow
6. The Sacral – Sexuality and Creativity – Orange
7. The Root – Grounding – Red

During Meditation we can visualise these Chakras as colours and energy turning like wheels. Keeping these energies moving, open and aligned can maintain our physical and emotional wellbeing. This can also be enhanced by the use of colours in the form of crystals or even cloth.

To aid communication use the colour blue in clothing and during meditations. Crystals like aquamarine, blue lace gate worn as a necklace or held around the throat area during meditations, to improve wellbeing to the relevant Chakra.
