The seven chakras are the seven main energy points of the human body. Each one has its own position along the spine of the human body and serves a specific purpose. The different chakra colors also help to indicate your current physical, emotional and spiritual states.
By using each of the chakra colors you can elevate your healing and meditative experiences when you are focusing on how your chakras are working and clearing any blocks. Some people will even use matching collared crystals or chakra stones to amplify their chakras during meditation.
So, are you ready to learn all about the colors of the chakras and what they mean? Let’s go!
The Charka Colors: Meanings and Symbolisms
Each chakra has its own corresponding color that speaks to its power and focus. A well-balanced chakra is in tune with both your internal and external energies and these chakras must remain unblocked and full flowing for optimum overall health.
The chakra colors are like a rainbow that flows through our body and it’s just as important to understand the colors as it is the seven chakras themselves.
Violet – The Crown Chakra
Although I have used the color violet for the crown chakra here, sometimes it’s also viewed using the color white. Violet is the color of dreams and imagination, while white signifies purity, innocence, and illumination.
Violet is also the color of unity, oneness, and spirituality. It offers a sense of wholeness and with it a sense of completion of different processes. This color can help you connect to your inner self and aids you with receiving help from high spiritual realms.
It’s also a very healing color that can help to soothe away pain. This is one of the chakra colors that is cleansing and purifying.
Violet people tend to be very open-minded, curious, and also incredibly deep thinkers. They are constantly questioning the world around them and looking for answers. Some challenges a violet person may face are an unwillingness to validate other people’s ways of thinking. They can also be very greedy, dominant, and materialistic.
Spiritually, violet can indicate that a person can give to others without the need for accolades or pats on the back. They experience great oneness with the divine and highly value being of service to others.
Indigo – The Third Eye Chakra
The deep blue and purple hues of the indigo chakra signify wisdom and deep inner knowing. It’s one of the chakra collars that can open the door to the divine and brings clarity to your senses. It is a color of deep change that acts as a bridge between the before and what comes next.
If you notice someone who has that spark to their eyes, eyes that seem bright and filled will deep wisdom, it’s likely they are a person with indigo energy. It is calm energy that is strong with changes and transformations.
Indigo is also an energy that is symbolic of thinking, just like one of our other chakra colors, blue. It represents the path of effortless action. This means when you are exerting actions, you find that neither your will nor your ego imposes on your actions. It simply flows naturally and effortlessly.
Indigo people tend to be very intuitive, perceptive, and sensitive. They also tend to have natural clairvoyant talents, some realized and some not. However, some challenges that a person with the color indigo may face are loneliness, depression, and deep sadness.
These challenges usually surface when the third eye chakra is blocked. Without care, indigo people can become easily ungrounded and disconnected from life on earth.
Blue – The Throat Chakra
The throat chakra itself is responsible for communication and self-expression, Its representational color blue reflects calmness and peace of mind. Helping to slow down the speed of your thoughts and help you become more articulate.
Its soothing, healing, and calming energies help you to slow down and listen to your own voice. It also promotes an uncluttered mind which provides stillness. It is also a very guiding energy color that helps you to find a sense of trust and faith.
People who gravitate to this one of the chakra colors tend to have a strong upper body and a resonant voice. They are also very clear communicators but also excellent listeners.
This color is an entry of symbolic thinking. These symbols are the core foundations of communication and consciousness and help to connect the material to the symbolic.
You may also find that people who carry blue energy are fantastic dancers, musicians, or singers as they possess great rhythm. They are also incredibly comfortable at expressing themselves openly.
However, some challenges that blue people may experience, especially if this chakra is blocked, is blocked creativity, poor communication, and an inability to not interrupt people.
Green – The Heart Chakra
Green is the color of the heart chakra. This one of the chakra colors symbolizes love, empathy, harmony, fertility, gratitude, and prosperity. The energy of the color green is soothing and calming and with it, it brings a sense of the interconnectedness of all life.
It is connected to our heart center where the energies of our lower chakras can be transformed and integrated into the spiritual side of yourself. With balance in this center, you can find love, balance, the ability to form healthy and rewarding relationships, and also be more open to giving and receiving love.
Green actually represents the developmental stage of us learning how to form satisfying relationships with family, friends, and romantic prospects. People with green energies are likely to have been wounded in previous relationships and are only just beginning to heal.
Those who possess green energy tend to radiate a sense of love and peace and can more readily accept people for who they are. As open as they are to the people around them, they are also able to set healthy boundaries and are generally pretty emotionally well-balanced.
Some challenges that people who possess this one of the chakra colors may face, especially if their heart chakra is blocked or weak are a lack of compassion, becoming overly sacrificing, rising to an unhealthy level of perfection, and becoming quite critical of both others and themselves.
Yellow – The Solar Plexus Chakra
The yellow of the solar plexus chakra is the sunniest of all the chakra colors. Symbolizing youth, new beginnings, rebirth, wisdom, and joy. The vibrance and optimism of the yellow color fills you up with the wholeness of full energy. It is your solar plexus chakra that controls your self-esteem and confidence.
Even looking at the color yellow can brighten your mood. This is why this color is reflective of positive emotions like power, motivation, hope, and positivity.
It also gives us the power to radiate this positive energy to others. It gives you the motivation to also focus on your autonomy and the development of self.
People who gravitate towards the yellow of the chakra colors tend to be pro-active, reliable, and gravitate towards intellectual pursuits. They have warm personalities that others can’t help but be drawn to. Their sense of humor, joy, and playfulness is utterly charming and hard to resist.
Yellow people also have a deep knowledge of themselves, can be fearless, and believe that everything they experience is a lesson that creates growth. Some challenges that yellows may suffer from are fear of death, feelings of worthlessness, cynicism, and an inability to take accountability. These are usually signs that their solar plexus chakra is blocked or its color is weak.
Orange – The Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is positioned in the pelvic area. So it’s no surprise that the orange of the chakra colors symbolizes vitality, lust, pleasure, creativity, and nurturing. It embodies physical and emotional intimacy and is a warm, energizing color. It is a color that stimulates us and dazzles us.
Orange’s a color that reminds us that if we wish to make room for something new, old parts of us must die. Spiritually the color orange helps to convert subtle energy (prana) into energy that we can use within the wholeness of our bodies.
People who feel drawn towards the color orange feel alive and connected to the enjoyment of physical pleasures. They are bright-eyed when it comes to their curiosity and desire for exploration.
The color orange is filled with great intensity and power. Orange people have almost magnetic personalities filled with intense joy, optimism, enthusiasm, but also the ability to be tender and nurturing.
Some challenges we may face as people drawn to orange are obsessiveness, manipulative behaviors, becoming very demanding of the attention of others, and excessively strong mood swings. As orange people, these challenges usually indicate a blocked or weak sacral chakra.
Red – The Root Chakra
The red color of our root chakra is the most stimulating of all the chakra colors. Dense and possessing the lowest wavelengths, the red color symbolizes energy, passion, movements, and change.
It is the color of life force, being the color of blood and also the first color we come into contact with when we are born. Red is our connection to the earth.
The energy of red is a masculine energy. It is a confident, outgoing, and dynamic color although it can also be quite forceful and dominant. It is a color of action that moves us and awakens us as it guides us through change. Red is also the primary color of manifestation and prosperity. Surrounding ourselves with this color can give our manifestation more power.
People who find themselves drawn towards the color red enjoy their physical bodies and the life they live here on earth. They are ambitious, highly practical, and in many circumstances can be drawn to careers in politics.
Clear thinking, a strong ability to set goals and prioritize, and a consuming righteous anger are all signs of a red person.
Just like all the other chakra colors, red people suffer from challenges that may arise if their chakra is blocked. Such as anger or rage, stubbornness, a disconnect from your soul, poor focus.
Red people can also suffer greatly from depression. This is usually a sign of possessing far too much red energy that has turned inward.
To fix this you will need to learn to get in touch with and be comfortable with your anger so that you can transform it into usable energy.
