Balancing Chakras with Visualization and Color Associations
Balancing chakras is a practice that involves various techniques and approaches, including meditation, yoga, and visualization. One useful way to begin balancing your chakras is by focusing on each of the seven chakras, beginning with the Root Chakra and working your way up to the Crown Chakra.
A basic method is to visualize the color associated with each chakra and imagine a glowing ball of light at the corresponding location in your body. As you focus on each chakra, imagine the glowing ball beginning to spin as you activate it.
Here are the color associations to each chakra:
Root Chakra: Red
Sacral Chakra: Orange
Solar Plexus Chakra: Yellow
Heart Chakra: Green
Throat Chakra: Blue
3rd Eye Chakra: Indigo
Crown Chakra: Violet or White
Planetary Associations for Each Chakra
When practicing balancing chakras, another approach is to tune into planetary energy, drawing beneficial energy from each corresponding planet. Each of the seven chakras is connected to a specific planet, and by tapping into the energy of these planets, we can balance and activate our chakras in a more profound way.
Here are the planetary associations for each chakra, according to the Chaldean order of the planets, from fastest/closest to slowest/furthest from Earth.
