How Are Chakras and Flowers Related?
How do you link chakras, the energy centers of the body in Eastern tradition, and flowers, quiet, ephemeral, brilliant, pleasant manifestations of nature?
… by method of color treatment. If you do not truly believe in any of the above, yoga energy balancing methods… meditation… and a basic method of making yourself feel better and reenergized even.
7 Main Chakras
There are seven main chakras (in addition to several others) in a line from the base of the spinal column to the crown of the head and one more recently identified chakra just above the head which I believe is necessary. Everyone is associated with different areas of physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness. When the energy flow in one ends up being obstructed it can lead to certain symptoms and vice versa. By keeping the chakras open and the energy streaming, we can maximize our body’s capability to keep well and heal itself.
Each chakra has a color of the spectrum linked to it. Focus on that color and envision that color light putting into the chakra and saturating it in pure colored light, then imagine the chakra as a spinning disc of color. Work through each chakra (see below for summary) in turn from Root to Crown to rebalance your entire energy level.
Why Link Chakras and Flowers?
So, what about the flowers? Whatever you use to visualize the color would work, paint examples, colored stones or crystals, an image in your mind’s eye, however stunning pictures of flowers saturated in the pure color of each chakra can bring some extra flower energy into your life too.
Flowers raise the vibrational energy around them, which is why they have long been associated with events, brought as presents to brand-new moms, sick individuals, enjoyed ones. We are hardly ever conscious of the spiritual connection these days; we simply understand that flowers cheer individuals up and make them feel grateful.
