Every Chakra is related to a specific color. In fact all Chakras, put together, have all colors of the rainbow, which again goes to show that we are an integral part of the cosmos and should never try to alienate ourselves from Nature because if we do so, we subject our body, mind and soul to untold agony and endless pain. Once you know the colors associated with the Chakras, you instantly know which color you have to use for healing the affected Chakra. While using color therapy, place your hand on the person’s body part (that needs healing) and visualize the related color seeping into the body of the patient. In some cases the practitioners recommend to their clients to use the specified colors in the clothes they wear on daily basis so as to magnify the results of therapy. Each color used in color therapy has a particular significance depending on the body part intended to be healed. There are crystals that resonate with particular colors and can also be used for intensifying the effect of healing. The colors used in color therapy are those which resonate with each particular Chakra and the same are detailed as under:
