Colors and their uses are very important part of any magic. Power of colors is also used in healing . Different colors are associated with different kind of energy, days of a week, planets or concepts in life. Magic uses basic colors as red, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, gold, silver, brown, black and white. Same goes for color healing. I will share with you some basic uses and meanings of these colors.
Chakra Color healing
Probably the most used method of using healing power of colors is chakra healing and Reiki. Each chakra center is associated with a specific color's energy which has similar vibration. According Yoga philosophy Chakras are 7 main centers of physical and spiritual energy in and around the human body. Visualization of the color is very important when performing healing, opening or balancing rituals of the chakras.
When doing a chakra healing healer lays an object like a natural crystal in the appropriate color on a chakra point to help it to open up. To re-balance all 7 chakras, one lays down and place an appropriate stone on each chakra point. Candles in corresponding color can be used as well while meditating or performing a healing ritual. Wearing colors or eating foods can also be used as part of healing process. Each of us has these 7 chakra centers:
1st chakra - Root - color Red - Lower limbs and base of the spine - Security, being alive
2nd chakra - Sacral - color Orange - Reproductive organs - Sexuality and reproduction
3rd chakra - Solar plexus - color Yellow - Digestive system - Intellect, creativity and ego
