Color therapy for changing energy in Ayurveda

Fall is a perfect time to notice if you are attracted to a certain color as the leaves are fully changed and the colors are so vibrant! I relate color to the energy of the chakras (energy centers in the body) They relate to different parts of the body as well as different systems of the body. When you are connecting with a certain color, most likely you are also needing to nourish or reset that particular chakra and related system. Below is a list of the chakras and the colors that match. Before you read it close your eyes and take a stroll in your inner mind through the woods on a beautiful Fall day and see what color is resinating with you, then open your eyes and read the outcome! This will give you an idea of an area that needs a little more attention on healing or reseting and bringing that color into your daily life in as many ways as possible.

Red ~ Located at the base of the spine. This is your being grounded, centered, self generated security, acceptance of your self. When out of balanced, you can have a higher sense of insecurity, survival, fear and tension.

Orange ~ Located in the lower abdomen and lower back. This is your creativity center, pleasure, joy for life. When out of balance you may feel you can’t express yourself, you don’t feel creative, and you have resistance to change.

Yellow ~ Located 2 inches above the naval. This is your will power, motivation, ambition, courage, sense of freedom and ease. When out of balance you may feel anger, fear, timidness, need to control things or other people.

Green ~ Located at the chest, sternum. This is your love and compassion for yourself and others, respect, authentic connection with yourself and others. When out of balance you may feel prolonged sadness or grief, “broken heart”, possessiveness or jealousy, attachment to someone or something.

Blue ~ Located at the neck and throat. This is speaking your voice, your truth, knowing what you want, asking for what you want, and being fully self expressed. When out of balance you may lack the capability to speak and hear, disconnected from your inner truth.

Purple ~ Located at the forehead between the eyebrows. This is your vision, intuition, ideas, intentionality, focus, and clarity of thinking. When out of balance you may have shortsightedness, lack of vision, “being in your head”, being run by your emotions.

How did you do? If you have any questions I would be happy to help.

Peace and blessings,
