Chakra-energy Centers and Color spectrum
Charkas are said to output different array of colors depending on the chakra, like the colors of the rainbow. Color and sound directly impact these energy centers because each chakra has a specific frequency that correlates with the color and tone. When out of balance, the correct sound and color will help it to resonate and tune-up to the correct vibrational frequency.
When in harmony the following is a list of the native color of each chakra.
The following are various ways to incorporate color healing into your life. Pick one or more ways that resonate with you.
Using color to heal with Colored Lighting
You can use a bedside or standard lamp and a colored light bulb relevant to your need. Place the lamp so that it will shine on the area of your body that requires healing for a few minutes at a time. You can use a lamp with a shade, and cover with a colored silk scarf. Be sure the silk doesn’t contact the bulb-no fires please!
*In my practice at Acupuncture Center, Inc., I use Color-light therapy with a gentle micro-current for healing effects in my Energy-Light Facial Rejuvenation or Vibrational Healing services with micro-current and color-light (MEA).
Using color with Colored Silks
Silk is the finest material for the transmission of color energies.
Find a warm, sunny location in your home.
Play your favorite relaxing music.
While completely undressed drape a large piece of multi-colored silk or silk of your desired color over your body and lay down in the sunlight, allowing its rays to penetrate your body through the silk for fifteen to thirty minutes.
Using color to heal with Color Breathing, Visualization and Meditation
Color breathing utilizes the focus of the mind combined with breathing to aid the healing process. Do not stress if it does not work the first time, take your time and keep trying. It takes practice.
Sit comfortably and visualize the color relevant to your need.
Breathe gently and deeply through your nose and exhale out through the mouth.
Imagine that each breath you take is slowly and softly absorbing a color of light into your body.
Allow your senses to feel the full effects of the breathing and use your mind to visualize its penetration of the body.
Sense the fulfillment of the color breathing.
After a few minutes of this breathing, return to your normal breathing pattern.
Red breathing is for increasing willpower, vitality and sexuality.
