SEVEN ‘CHAKRAS’, COLOR THERAPY and VASTU

SEVEN ‘CHAKRAS’, COLOR THERAPY and VASTU
Light is ‘Life Giving’. We surely cannot survive without light. Have you ever realized that we feel energized, peaceful and happy when we sit in winter Sun? Our blood-flow improves, and we get several vitamins and minerals that are available in Sunlight. The morning Sun is a source of positive energy. It is advisable to go for a walk in the morning. Morning walk help remove toxins from our body and absorb positive energy from Sun. Morning walk is an energy drink and keeps us active the whole day.
Color is a property of light. Sunlight can be dissipated to seven colors that treat the seven Chakras present in our body. VIBGYOR flows through our body with violet corresponding with ‘Sahasrara Chakra’ (Crown Chakra), located at top of the head and red corresponding with ‘Mooladhar Chakra’ (Root Chakra), located at last bone in spinal cord.
Think about this – Why do we have favorite colors? In addition, our favorite color keeps on changing. If you notice, the color tone of your wardrobe keep on changing, sometime more of red, sometime blue and sometime orange.
Think about this – why do some colors just “go” with each other (for example, Blue and White often look nice together. However, Pink and Orange is not the usual one) what is it that makes them go together? It is our brain’s reaction to them – thus, colors can actually emit feelings. Moreover, if it can emit an emotion, it can do much more.
White is a combination of all colors. That is why when we wear white, we feel light and energetic, as all our Chakras get energy. Most of the saints wear only white. Most of people like wearing light shades as light shades have more white in it.
Lack of a particular color in the human system can cause various diseases. Color Therapy is a technique of restoring imbalance by means of colors. Color Therapy can be used as an alternative therapy. Every disease is caused by emotional imbalance. All emotions are properties of seven Chakras and each Chakra has a specific color. The color treats its respective Chakra and thus, treats the root cause of any disease.
