The 7 Chakra Colors and Their Meaning

For those who are interested in energy healing and spirituality, the concept of Chakras may be quite familiar. However, for those of you just starting on your energy healing journey, this concept might be completely foreign. Let’s take a closer look at the 7 Chakra Colors and their meaning.

The human body has 7 Chakras starting from the base of the spine to the top of the head. These Chakras are the powerhouses of energy and keep us active, vibrant, and healthy. 

Chakras are wheels of light that distribute life energy to all the parts and the glands of the body equally. This life energy is also called “Qi,” (pronounced as Chi) and governs our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. 

When there is a disturbance in the energy distribution due to any misaligned or closed Chakras, you are prone to develop severe illnesses and diseases. In such a case, you are likely to find yourself weak, distracted, and lost. However, learning about the 7 Chakras can help you clear your energy blocks and regain your optimal health and calmness. 

Understanding the 7 Chakra Colors

“Every Chakra is associated with a different color to establish a connection between the mental and the physical state of the human body.” 

Colors are a universal language and easy to understand. They are often used to represent and symbolize things and concepts. For clarity and ease, all 7 Chakras are represented using the colors of the Rainbow (every color in the spectrum vibrates at a certain frequency.)

    The question could be: When and how do you see these colors? I sometimes see colors in the darkness of my meditation behind closed eyes. If I do see colors, what does that mean? If I don t see any colors, what does that mean?
