Chakra Healing Color Therapy
Colors are simply the wavelengths of these frequencies. And because they are a part of us, they attract us with their balancing power, which is integral to good health. The term "chakra" comes from Sanskrit and means "wheel" or "disk". How many chakras are there in the human body? Because they are energy centers, the body has many, but the generally accepted theory is that there are seven (7) major energy centers.
Each of these centers has several associations to color and health. Here is the first of the seven:
White or Violet is the color for the Crown Chakra located at the center of your head, on an infant it is called the "soft spot". An imbalance in this energy center leads to depression, confusion, Alzheimer's and obsessional thinking. The central nervous system is the associated body part and this chakra's function is to facilitate understand and knowledge.
If you are feeling nervous, try surrounding yourself with candles, plants, fabrics or crystals of these two colors. Violet especially has a calming effect on the nervous system, if you can also use lavender or lilac, both derivatives of violet. Lavender incense and oil are also useful in creating a peaceful environment. We will look at the remaining chakras in the next part of the series.
