When I learned that the ancient science of our Chakra system equates the seven chakras with the colors of the rainbow, it peeked my interest. My obsession with rainbows has been going on for awhile. For the last few years I have been taking a bit of a voyage, attempting to better understand the chakras in all their rainbow splendor.
Just what are they? Simply put, the chakras are believed to be energy centers in our bodies. Each energy center oversees our health in a particular area of our life and within our physical body. If one of your chakras are out of whack your whole system is hindered, and ease and health soon depart. Gaining balance brings you back to health.
As a rank beginner in the field I have spent lots of time researching various aspects. I have gone to healers who propose that they are able to balance my chakras, I have practiced a wide variety of chakra meditations, I made seven quilted chakra banners as gifts to various alternative healers who have helped me on my path. I have painted and colored any number of things with a rainbow spectrum. I have beaded gemstone necklaces in every color, and sewn myself a rainbow of dresses and aprons, which has allowed me to try out dedicating one day per week to each chakra and wearing the color associated with it on that day. At work I even organized my file drawer for doing referrals in chakra color order rather than alphabetically – for instance information on cardiology is in the green section which correlates with the heart chakra.
I love to organize any colorful thing I encounter in rainbow order. It makes me feel happy. For some of you this may all seem like silliness. For others the significance of our energy centers is well known, and so you might even now be nodding wisely in agreement. Regardless, I thought it would be fun to do a pictorial tour of the chakras using flower pictures I have taken over the years. Who knows, maybe just drinking in the colors will open up your life to greater health, happiness and wellbeing. From top to bottom. Enjoy.
