Red light corresponds to the Root Chakra.
The first chakra is directly tied to Mother Earth and is associated with the earth element. The Sanskrit term for this energy area is Muladhara, which translates as “root support.”
A healthy Root Chakra enables a person to be grounded, in control, and at peace with himself. When the Root Chakra is out of harmony, it is natural for an individual to feel irritated and combative in circumstances they would normally manage quietly.
Exposure to Red light can help to balance an imbalanced Root Chakra in the body.
Orange light corresponds to the Sacral Chakra.
Called the Svadhishtana (meaning sweetness) chakra, the orange chakra or the second chakra, it is associated with the element of water, language and action. It is located in the lower abdomen, genitals and womb. The glands it controls are the gonads (ovaries and testes). In men, this chakra is associated with the emotional body.
A healthy Sacral Chakra enables a person to be creative, fluid, and connect with others healthily. A closed sacral chakra can make you feel detached from your own emotions as well as the emotions of the people around you, while an overactive sacral chakra often results in emotional highs and lows.
Exposure to Orange light can help to balance an imbalanced Sacral Chakra in the body.
Purple light corresponds to the Third Eye Chakra.
The third eye chakra, also known as Ajna, is considered to be the sixth chakra in the body. This chakra is said to be located in the center of your head, parallel to the middle of your eyebrows. It’s linked to perception, awareness, and spiritual communication.Some say that when open, the third eye chakra can provide wisdom and insight, as well as deepen your spiritual connection.
People who have trouble listening to reality (who seem to “know it all”) or who are not in touch with their intuition may have a blockage in this chakra. When open and in alignment, people will follow their intuition and be able to see the big picture.
Exposure to Purple light can help to balance an imbalanced Third Eye Chakra in the body.
Indigo light corresponds to the Crown Chakra.
Crown Chakra or the “thousand-petaled lotus,” is a seventh energy centre situated at the crown of your head. This chakra is the most potent energy centre in the entire chakra system, since it embodies the characteristics of all seven chakras. This chakra’s energy supports you in experiencing spiritual oneness and harmony with all living forms and everything in your immediate environment.
It is considered the chakra of enlightenment and represents our connection to our life’s purpose and spirituality. Those with a blocked crown chakra may seem narrow-minded, skeptical, or stubborn. When this chakra is open, it will keep all the other chakras open and to bring the person bliss and enlightenment.
Exposure to Indigo light can help to balance an imbalanced Crown Chakra in the body.
Blue light corresponds to the Throat Chakra.
The Throat Chakra, is a fifth energy point found in the neck’s midsection. The throat chakra is associated with your capacity to express your genuine self and converse freely with others.
Blocks or misalignment can also be seen through dominating conversations, gossiping, speaking without thinking, and having trouble speaking your mind. When in alignment, you will speak and listen with compassion and feel confident when you speak because you know you are being true to yourself with your words.
Exposure to Blue light can help to balance an imbalanced Throat Chakra in the body.
Green light corresponds to the Heart Chakra.
Called the Anahata (meaning un-hurt, un-stuck) chakra, the Heart Chakra or the fourth chakra, serves as a link between both the three lower chakras (physically-oriented chakras) as well as the three higher chakras (spiritual-oriented chakras) (non-physical ones). It also represents our ability to love and connect to others.
When the Heart Chakra is fully opened and balanced, one feels calm and at peace, rather than relying on an external source of pleasure. People with Heart Chakra blocks often put others first, to their own detriment. When the Heart Chakra is out of alignment, it can make us feel lonely, insecure, and isolated.
Exposure to Green light can help to balance an imbalanced Heart Chakra in the body.
