Color Therapy for the Chakras


colorsMany years ago, when I first started studying the chakras, I bought a DVD on Chakra Balancing, and found it was simply slides of different colors corresponding to the different chakras. Can color therapy really balance the chakras? Well, I kept testing the theory and did find that often the colors we like best are the colors we most need in our lives and they provide us with subtle vibrational help.

The colors in the world around us are manifestations of light and, as such, each possesses a unique frequency… frequencies that do relate to the colors of the chakras. It’s been said that we experience the beneficial affects of color even while blindfolded. We are naturally drawn to those colors that lift our mood, expand our consciousness, and help restore wellbeing.

Color therapy allows us to harness the power of individual color frequencies to heal the body, positively influence our emotions, and achieve a renewed sense of harmony. Colors alter the vibrational characteristics of diverse elements of the self so that each resonates at its proper healthy frequency.

Wearing clothes or crystals of a certain color or gazing at an area of color in a painting or nature scene can stimulate or calm us depending on the color we yellow-crystalchoose. For example, red stimulates the root chakra, grounding us, while yellow strengthens the solar plexus chakra, increasing our energy, and blue acts on the throat chakra, soothing the body and mind and helping us clarify our thoughts.

In my Kindle book, Balance the Chakras, Balance Your Life, I have pictures of a clear crystal lighted with different colors. Try meditating on the colored crystals for just a minute, breathing in the color and breathing out any stress or pain, and see which color works best for you at this moment in time.

Namaste!

Crystals for Chakra Balancing


Just like you carry a few everyday items in your purse, pocket or car, like cough drops to soothe your throat, lip gloss to protect and brighten your lips or gym shoes for your lunchtime walk, having a set of crystals can be very useful for clearing energy blockages and opening chakras.

They need not be fancy or showy and seem to work best when they are allowed to choose you. As proof that “everything” in this life is alive, aware and responsive, hold your hand over a few crystals and wait until one or more of them signals you that they are ready to become yours, to accompany you and to work with you by both absorbing and giving off energy.

Now, as the new guardian of your crystals and the recipient of their marvelous power, you have a responsibility to keep them clean and energized. First steep your new crystals overnight in a solution of sea salt and water and dry them thoroughly before you begin to use them.

Periodically, re-wash your crystals in the salt solution, or in rainwater and then re-energize them by exposing them to moon or sunlight for several hours. Take advantage of the healing energy of every full moon by leaving your crystals outside overnight.

Crystals can be simple, yet powerful tools when you’re seeking balance and a sense of well-being in your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self.

To aid in general stress relief, try placing three clear quartz crystals, points facing outward, in a triangle just below your navel. Next, place three rose quartz stones in an arc above your pubic bone and relax for 4-5 minutes. Repeat as often as is needed for optimal energy flow.

For a complete Chakra Balance, try this simple crystal layout to reinforce your chakra energies and ensure they are functioning well.

Choose a grounding stone (black, brown or dark red) to place between your feet. Then choose a stone or crystal corresponding to the different colors of the chakras, placing the red one between your knees, the orange right above your pelvic bone, the yellow right above your navel, the green over your heart center, the light blue on your throat, indigo or dark blue on your forehead and a violet or clear stone on the floor just above the top of your head. Lie down with these stones in place for a period of about 5 minutes or until you feel complete, then remove the stones starting with the one above your head.

Relax for a few more minutes, still lying down, then enjoy a sense a well-being and balance, ready to face the stresses of the day ahead.

Adapted from Crystal Healing by Simon and Sue Lilly

Here is what author, Sue Lilly had to say about The Chakra Diaries:
“I just loved the book! Astonishing waves of chakra-linked emotion to each section. I became easily drawn in to the issues that each chapter dealt with, especially those most people shy away from – death, sex and pain. This is a beautiful way for people to begin to understand the emotional depth that each chakra corresponds to. I salute those brave souls who have shared their lives.”
Namaste.

Choosing Crystals for Chakra Balancing


Just like you carry a few “everyday” items in your purse, briefcase, pocket or car like socks for cold meeting rooms, hard candies to soothe your throat, lipstick to protect and brighten your lips or gym shoes for your lunchtime walk, having a set of crystals can be very useful in chakra balancing.

They need not be fancy or showy and seem to work best when they are allowed to choose you. As proof that “everything” in this life is alive, aware and responsive, hold your hand over a few crystals and wait until one or more of them signals you that they are ready to become yours, to accompany you and to work with you by both absorbing and giving off energy.

Now, as the new guardian of your crystals and the recipient of their marvelous power, you have a responsibility to keep them clean and energized. First steep your new crystals overnight in a solution of sea salt and water and dry them thoroughly before you begin to use them.

Periodically, re-wash your crystals in the salt solution, or bury them in a bed of salt between uses or even plant them in your garden or under a tree in your favorite park. Take advantage of the healing energy of every full moon by leaving your crystals outside overnight.

One note: The intense energy of clear quartz may keep some awake at night so keep it away from your sleeping area if you are especially sensitive and bring in the calming influence of amethyst instead.
