What Are Chakra Colours and How Can They Affect Your Life

Chakra (old Sanskrit meaning wheel) are the energy centres within our bodies which control different aspect of our lives. The 7 centres run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Once the wheels are all spinning adequately, they will provide energy to all parts of our bodies. If they stop spinning or there’s a cog in the wheel so to speak, it will begin manifesting in our lives.

The Root Chakra – Red

Located just at the base of the tail bone, this chakra gives a you a sense of comfort and accomplishment regarding money and safety. When under-active people may say you appear out of it or you may find yourself daydreaming a lot. When overactive there may be feelings of anxiety and even manifest as lower back pain, hip pain and digestive issues.

The Sacral Chakra – Orange

This Chakra motivates you to enjoy pleasurable activities, so it should be no surprise that it is found right below the navel and extends to its center. An under-active sacral chakra can present as low mood and impotence if you are depriving yourself time to enjoy the benefits of all that you have worked for. However if overactive, you can find symptoms such as restlessness and obesity.

The Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow

Starting at the centre of your navel and extending to the breastbone, this Chakra is where your self confidence and inner power are stored. When out of balance you can find yourself prone to anger easily and mood swings, or indecisive and insecure on the next end of the spectrum

The Heart Chakra – Green

Associated with love, health and healing when perfectly balanced. Out of balance signs include palpitations, relationship issues or circulation problems and feeling out of touch with your body

The Throat Chakra – Blue

The Throat Chakra helps you to speak with kindness, love and truth. Overactivity can manifest physically with throat pain, cavities or people may view you as someone who is very loud and loves to hear themselves talk. Under-activity shows up as someone who is shy or scared to speak the truth.

The Third Eye Chakra – Indigo

This one is located between your brow bones and guides you to see things beyond the input from your five senses. With an overactive third eye you may find yourself obsessing over tarot cards or paranormal events instead of rooting yourself in things of this earth.

The Crown Chakra – White

Situated at the top of your head, this chakra connects you to the universe. Having this balanced is one of the optimal goals of a spiritual warrior. Without it you can become caught between the spiritual world and the material one.

Achieving balance in all your chakras at the same time is quite a feat. Ideally you should approach it like learning a new language: start with the basics and small sections first before going for the gold.
