Raise Your Vibration With These Colors
There are seven main energy centers called chakras in the body, which resonate with the seven rainbow colors. Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit; chakras are like spinning vortexes of energy and they directly affect the physical state of our body (imagine each chakra as a conduit of energy; if blocked, it will affect both the “upstream” and “downstream” flow of energy, and the organs associated with that chakra.
There are many ways to heal, balance and open the chakras, and one of the easiest and most delightful is through the use of color.
Color is just a vibratory quality of energy that is calibrated to be perceived by our eyes. Each color that we can perceive, is associated with one of the chakras.
The colors that are in your environment (including on your body) have an impact on your aura (your energy). Using the right color can stimulate a chakra, amplify the color of a particular chakra and enhance its activity, bring it back into balance and restore the flow of energy.
While some colors (purple, for example) have a higher vibration than other colors (for example, red), each color serves an important purpose.
Here are some ways to heal your chakras using color:
1. Wear bright colors and (just as importantly) the brightest TONES of each color, when you need to breathe some life into your chakras. Look around at people who wear grays, browns and blacks – they tend to be moody, gloomy, and they can be negative and complain a lot. The color of their skin is likely sallow and unhealthy, and they don’t exude physical strength and energy. If you live in a part of the world where sunny weather is not that common (such as the UK and northern Europe), it’s a good idea to wear very bright colors and have bright colors in your home and workspace, to brighten your mood and activate the chakras that relate to the colors you choose. By “bright” colors, I mean the colors of the rainbow.
2. Wear colors that resonate with your intentions. For example, if you feel like you need to boost your mood and happiness, wear bright, cheerful colors. People who are depressed tend to wear dull and dark colors – so deliberately raise your vibration with cheerful colors, even if you don’t feel like wearing them, do it. Here are some other intentions and their relevant colors:
Sales, presentations and anytime you need to project authority, confidence or personal power: blue tones (throat chakra) and yellow tones (solar plexus chakra)
Relationship harmony: pinks and greens (heart chakra)
Boost your sex life with orange (sacral chakra)
Need for security, grounding, safety: red (root chakra)
Spiritual connection is enhanced with purple or white: (crown chakra)
If you have to be around toxic, energy-draining people, wear orange (solar plexus chakra = self-esteem/personal power) and other very bright colors that boost your own mood.
Follow your intuition and if you notice that you’re feeling down, brighten your mood and stimulate your chakras with bright colors. By contrast, if you are feeling hyper or overly emotional, tone them down by looking at a color wheel and picking a color that immediately makes you feel peaceful and grounded – no second-guessing, just intuitively go with the one that feels best in the moment.
We don’t always remember the power of color as a healing tool, but it’s very significant: there’s a reason that people wear “power suits” or “power ties” in blue… and a reason that pale greens are soothing… and a reason why we feel “rich” when we wear or see purple.
Use colors deliberately – eschew the dull monotone colors and make your life a riotous explosion of color that visually reflects the joy, exuberance and light/love that is your true nature!
