How do Colours Relate to the Chakras?
Each of your chakras is vibrating at a particular frequency and responds to different vibrations (or waves) of light. As you have seen from the download in the Colours and Frequency topic, the root chakra is vibrating at a frequency within 405 – 480 THz range, the sacral chakra within the 480 – 510 THz range, the solar plexus chakra within the 510 – 530 THz range etc. Within these frequencies and wavelengths, each colour contains information on several different levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This information can be used in your client sessions for chakra balancing and chakra healing. There is no single colour that has more value than the other. The colour is simply what it is – an aspect of the visible light spectrum with its particular frequency.
The colours are not stable and permanent as you would see colours in a picture. The colours are fluid, constantly changing, just as your emotions change. The chakra colours can be muddy, faded with very little colour present, or even too saturated – too bright. The colour of a chakra indicates your current physical, emotional and spiritual state. We all recognise the connection between colour and emotion. Colour provides you with a mirror of your emotions. For example, ask yourself the following questions:
What is your favourite colour?
Do you wear certain colours of the spectrum more often?
Do you avoid certain colours?
What do you feel in your body when you see the colour red? Or the colour blue?
Colour is a universal language – it is simple and yet very profound.
I often notice that people are drawn to the colour of the chakra that needs the most attention and healing. However, the opposite can be true, and you will notice that you gravitate towards a certain colour that describes your personal qualities and where you feel balance and harmony. i.e. if teaching, speaking, singing etc. is a key aspect of your life, you may notice that you wear and use the colour blue more than others.
You can look at symbolic connections and the chakra system chart to determine the meaning of a specific colour. However, the colour of someone’s energy field is likely associated with the activity of one or several chakras. When paying attention to the auric field, it’s important to remember that colours do not necessarily have a definite, set meaning, but rather reflect the activity of the energy centres and their frequency or vibration.
For example, seeing purple around someone’s upper body while they are describing their calling in life might be due to a strong emphasis coming from their third eye chakra, an energy centre we commonly rely on when we envision our purpose or use our intuition.
Then as well, if you see flashes or a haze of pink around someone’s upper body, the heart might be involved and contributing to colouring the auric field, and so on.
