Implementing the 7 colors of chakra in your surroundings is a simple and effective way to make changes in your life. If you have one (or more chakras) that are unbalanced, add that chakra color to your home.
Here is the quick guide to the colors of the chakra:
Red: the first chakra concerns stability, balance and community. Signs that you might be unbalanced in this energy center include the feeling of fear, excessive anxiety about money and finances, and a feeling of being "separated" from those That surround you. Consider adding shades of red to your home. On a small scale, consider a red candle or candlestick, a painting or a poster with red elements, or red flowers like roses. If you want to do a lot of work with this energy center, buy a bright red bathrobe to snuggle up every night, a red bedspread for your bed or red curtains. For crystals, consider garnet or ruby.
Orange: the second chakra is linked to creativity, sensuality and sexuality. Signs of an imbalance include feeling bored by life, stuck in a routine, inhibiting sexuality with your partner, or lack of excitement in your life. For a quick lift, decorate with a bowl of oranges in your kitchen, amber or cornstone stones in your living room or an orange splattered rug. If your creative side seems foiled, add shades of orange where you do your work, such as near your desktop or in a room of art if you have one. If this is the sensual side of life that seems to be missing, add a lot of subtle orange accents in your room to spice things up. Consider the potpourri flavored with bergamot with dried orange slices and an orange night gown.
Yellow: the third chakra refers to self-esteem, self-confidence and limits. Signs of an imbalance include the fact that people are moving about you, being a "people's delight," feeling as if you are not good enough or if you are unsuccessful in your life. Yellow is the color of trust. Consider the yellow accents in jewelry, ties and scarves. For crystals, give a tiger eye and a yellow calcite. In the home and at work, add splashes of bright yellow in the decorative accents, especially in places where you tend to feel deactivated.
For flower daffodils and yellow daisies. Around the house, add a group of yellow candles or a yellow vase. If there is an area (such as at work) where you often experience low self-esteem, cover the area in yellow. Add frames, pictures, carpets, lamps even in yellow and see your self-rise.
