Color Therapy and the Chakras
The seven chakras in our bodies control our mental attitudes and emotions. They can also reflect when there is an imbalance somewhere. You must first figure out which chakra is unbalanced. After you do that, find the color that corresponds to that chakra. You can use color to balance the chakras every day.
An easy way to do this is to get many swatches of fabric with different colors. These can alos help in balancing the chakras. Th best part is it is very inexpensive.
The process will take about twenty minutes from start to finish. Lie down somewhere comfortable and make sure you have the seven swatches of fabric nearby. These are in order: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. They are the colors of the rainbow.
Take several slow, deep breaths and look back over the day’s happenings in reverse. Be sure to take note of any strong emotions or attitudes that were expressed during the day. What chakras would have been unbalanced by these emotions?
Take the color swatch for that specific chakra and lay it on the area of the chakra you have deemed unbalanced. Envision the color being drawn down into your body from your head down.
Take several more breaths, breathing deeply, and focus on the color and drawing it into the chakra. It may take up to five minutes before you feel “full” of color.
Another route is to take all seven swatches of cloth and place them on each chakra one at a time. Let the chakra draw in the color until it is full. Then proceed to the next one until you have done all seven.
Repeat if you feel that the color did not take, or if you are still feeling a little “empty” of one specific color. This can bring joy and brightness to your life, so give it a try.
