How to use a chakra colour chart for chakra balancing, a chakra cleanse, general well-being and stress relief.
Do you know what colour to use to balance each chakra?
Ancient texts describe seven energy centers, or chakras, arranged along the spinal column. Each one focuses energy, and each is associated with a colour.
The chakras are always changing and balancing to preserve your well-being.
Sometimes one chakra can become more dominant than the others, or stops spinning and becomes stuck...
This leads to an energy imbalance and you can really feel it.
There are various chakra balancing techniques you can use to get yourself "spinning in harmony" again - and colour therapy is a technique that works directly with the chakras...
Our chakra colour chart will help you do this.
Because each chakra is associated or linked to a particular colour, illness or imbalance can be treated by absorbing the appropriate colour physically, through the eyes and skin...
Shining coloured light on the chakra, over the whole body or through the eyes all create physical, emotional and mental changes which re-balance the chakras. I like to use the colour from chakra balancing crystals to energize and rebalance my chakras.
If coloured light is not available, you can do a chakra cleanse and chakra balancing mentally, via meditation and visualization techniques.
An easy way to get in touch with strengthening and balancing your chakras on a day to day basis is to wear clothing and accessories that will help...
How would you do this?...
Once you identify which chakra needs support you simply surround yourself with the related colour as much as possible... Use the chakra colour chart below to help you with this.
Identification can be as simple as knowing that you have a health problem in a particular area, or recognising where the feelings are located in your body with regard to an intense emotional issue...
If you feel upset by an encounter with someone, for example, you may be aware of the associated feelings in the solar plexus area, just underneath the chest. If you look at the chakra colour chart under solar plexus you can check the physical location of the feeling (i.e. "below chest") and note the related colour (Yellow) and crystal (Citrine) to wear...
Maybe you need to get something off your chest but feel gagged and your throat area feels tight. Have a look at the 5th chakra and choose a blue necklace or scarf to stimulate that chakra.
For simple, everyday crystal healing you may like to try an item of chakra jewellery that contains all seven crystals relating to the chakra energies.
Have a look at the chakra colour chart below to see how chakras and colours correspond.
