Chakra Color Healing Meditation
The chakras are often described as a rotating wheel or vortex of energy, and in the following exercise, you may find it helpful to visualize them as such. Because of the powerful connection between colors and the chakras, by applying the appropriate color, their functioning is improved and balanced. This principle can be used to give an overall boost to the system, to focus on a specific area of the body, or to strengthen the dimension of life associated with a particular chakra. The method is simplicity itself.

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in; their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
