The word “Chakra” is Sanskrit for “wheel,” denoting a spinning wheel of energy. Many practitioners think the origin of the chakras is reiki, but actually the origin of the chakra system is yoga. The ancient philosophy of yoga teaches that each Chakra is an inner energy center that awakens and moves vital life force energy throughout the body. The chakra centers live within the body, and source energy in all directions.
Note– the correct spelling is CAKRA! Unfortunately, not enough people are educated in this fact, so we use the more widely-known spelling “chakra” here. However, the correct pronunciation is CHA-kruh and we do most certainly use that at Conscious Colors! After all, wouldn’t it be better to have a cha-cha-cha with your chakras than to shock them (as in shah-kruh)?! Learn More with the FREE Conscious Colors Cakra Guide Here!
The chakra emanating locations, as well as the areas of the body they govern, are vital focal points for the Conscious Colors modality. We utilize these locations as guides for color meditations and visualizations, as well as anointing points for the Color Aroma Oils.
Every organ and gland, as well as the central nervous system, receives a necessary flow of energy from the Chakra energy centers.
Awakening the chakra system has a purpose beyond the wonderful benefits of physical, mental, and emotional well being that can be experienced. The true purpose of awakening the chakras is to reach states of higher consciousness and optimal holistic wellness.
You have 7 major Chakra centers, and a special harmony exists between your Chakras and Color Energy.
These charts show the seven rainbow rays connected to the seven major chakras. Each Chakra’s coordinating Color Therapy can serve to awaken the Chakra’s movement and mirrors its state of optimal vibrancy. However, due to the complex nature of the hue-man energy system, it is usually a different color that will bring a chakra into harmony with itself. This is a greater benefit, and purpose of, learning the Conscious Colors system for chakra awakening with the Color Aroma Oils and Mists.
The Yoga Sutras teach that meditating on the Sun is a doorway to the Universe. Conscious Colors offers that meditating with the Color rays of sunlight is a conscious path to a deep connection.
More on the Chakras from Constance Hart:
“Learning about the subtle energy body, first through reiki, then yoga, then qi gong, then Feldenkrais, then….then…then…too many modalities to remember or list. Well, this led me to develop the Chakra Restorative Yoga™ program. It was where I first started teaching Conscious Colors Color Therapy! I’ve taught thousands of these classes and workshops and later developed a teacher’s training program in this speciality and certified many instructors. Over all these years, what I’ve most discovered is many people misunderstand the chakras once they learn about the connection between the chakras and the physical “symptoms” that can be associated. I hear from people all the time that they are attempting to fix what has gone wrong.
For your consideration: Here’s a more gentle way to work with your new understanding of the chakras: when the body is showing a physical symptom, it is merely displaying 1) an area of the bodymindspirit that is wanting more attention and thus attempting to get your attention and 2) an energy/organ/gland/physical system is in the process of positive change. Yes! I said positive!
You may ask: “How can that be if my body is giving me a challenging (negative) symptom?” Well, remember, these chakras are energy wheels, meaning they are helping energy to move. I believe that energy is always on its way to somewhere else. Sometimes your body produces symptoms, and needs to release symptoms, gain its own clarity, and receive vibrational-healing energy in its quest to reach a different more positive destination. This is a key principle in the Conscious Colors modality.
Ultimately, my greater guidance here is to 1) always apply patience and loving kindness to any change that is occurring in your body and 2) remember that your body is part of an entire bodymindspirit, so when one realm is in the process of change, so are the others. This is true holistic healing!”
