Chakra Colours indicate your spiritual health as well as your physical and emotional state of being. The easiest way to understand the colours of our chakras is to look at them as a rainbow. Chakra colours are darker or lighter because of the light shining through them. Just as your emotional health is affected by your spiritual light shining through all aspects of your life. The colours are not boldly separated, but they blend from one shade to another.
In this post, we will explore the meaning of each chakra colour. It is important to keep in mind, that although certain shades may be preferred there is no right or wrong chakra colour to have, the shade simply varies from person to person and changes based on your overall chakra health reflected in the balance of your physical, emotional, mental and auric body. Meaning your chakra colours can be used as a tool to help understand your spiritual strengths and with that knowledge, to expand your personal growth and spiritual development.

If you are unable too or unsure that you are seeing your chakra colours though your third eye you can acquire more clarity about your chakra colours at any given time by consulting with a clairvoyant psychic reader or by going to your local psychic fair (like I do yearly) to have your chakras and aura scanned.
