You can be positive that colour is simply an energy vibration, you’ll be assisting the chakra centres of your body that vibrate with the same colours in your Jewellery even if it’s just one colour. You will be attracted to the colour or crystal that you will need for your wellbeing.
The chakra colours follow a distinct guide – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – but, why?
You may be familiar with that pattern because of the rainbow colours.
So what do chakra colours and the rainbow have in common?
They describe the entire visible colour spectrum. Both the chakras and rainbows contain every possible colour that we can see as humans.
When you analyse the seven chakras, instead of thinking of a red energy centre, an orange energy centre and so on, think of an entire spectrum of colour that starts at the base of your spine, the root chakra (Red) and goes out to the top of your head, the crown chakra (Violet or Golden).
The colours of the chakras merge, just as they do in a rainbow.
The individual chakras are centred in specific parts of your body, but they radiate out and merge with the chakras on either side.
Knowing that the crystals, the colours and their meanings can unlock the magic of our seven chakras can benefit you to understand their purpose on a deeper level. Working with crystal energy is a simple way to rebalance the Chakras energy systems. The matching coloured crystals will stimulate your senses, the colours and the healing will rebalance the energy of the mind, body and soul assisting your wellbeing.
Crystal healing colours can be part of your crystal jewellery pieces and using them in this way becomes a natural bio-fuel energy that transforms the whole body.
You may have been focused on making money or mending a broken heart.
It’s helpful to think of your energy in a more effective cycle. As an example, try to imagine that you have a large jug of water with seven glasses that you want to equally fill after you’ve poured equal amounts of water into each glass, you feel that one of the glasses still needs a little more water.
With no water left in the large jug, what do you do?
You use the water from the other glasses to make equal amounts to fill the seven glasses.
When you adjust the energy in your chakras, the more energy you need in one direction of your life, the less energy you will have for the other parts. It’s important to make sure all your chakras are in balance to keep them working well.
There will always be times in your life where you need to change your energy and focus.
The great thing is, you’ve got all the energy you’ll need but when you move your energy, it’s essential to know it and re-balance it when the work is done.
