COLOUR/CHAKRA ENERGY

COLOUR IS LIFE

Colours can change our mood and health, our well-being and our skin. Colour oscillations affect our chakras as well as our cells.

Chakras are energy centres that direct subtle energies all over our body via energy channels (meridians). Seven of these chakras are considered the main energy centres of the human body, and according to chakra teachings are based along the vertical centre axis of the body. Each chakra oscillates in the primary colour according to its task, and relates to specific organs and parts of the body. Furthermore, the seven main chakras also correspond to the seven main glands of the endocrine system. Each chakra also controls a specific aspect of human behaviour, and is defined by it. The lower chakras are linked to our basic requirements and emotions. The finer energies of the upper chakras correspond to our higher mental and spiritual endeavours and abilities.
