CHAKRA COLORS AND MEANINGS There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Using the seven colours of the spectrum, Colour Therapy aims to balance and enhance our body's energy centres/chakras and also to help stimulate our body's own healing process. Colour Therapy uses colour to re-balance the Chakras that have become depleted of energy. Colour therapy can be shown to help on a physical level; however there are deeper issues around the colours on the psychological and spiritual levels.
