Chakra's, Colours & Gemstones
WHAT ARE THE MEANINGS OF CHAKRAS AND THEIR COLOURS?
Each colour is connected to a specific chakra and it has its own meanings and properties. Here are the seven chakras, their colours and meanings – explained in a clear way ordered from root to crown:
WHY CHAKRAS HAVE COLORS?
Chakras have colours because they vibrate with different frequencies. Each chakra has its own density and pulse which can be perceived as colour, sound, or even a feeling.
Chakra colours and their order correlate with seven colours which compose the sunlight. These colours are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
You can observe these seven colours when you project the light through the glass prism. A prism breaks the white light into different colours, because each of these colours has a different wavelength.
