Chakras and their colours
A detailed overview of essential chakras and their associated colours has been compiled separately for them. The following is a connection to the colour theory.
The theory of colours as the basis for the chakra colours
The explanation of light and therefore of colours is still a difficult task in physics. Physics approaches this problem by looking at light not only as particles (Newton) but also as electromagnetic waves. These waves have different frequencies and the frequencies correspond to certain colours (visible light). The same is true with the chakras. Chakras do not “have” colours, but rather their “higher” frequencies correspond to the frequencies of the individual colours or colour spectra. This correspondence is so strong that over the centuries it has developed important insights into the chakra theory for the treatment and work with chakras.
Spectral Colors: An image of the chakras and energy bodies
The wave model defined by physics explains the colours. The visible light for humans represents only a small area between the infrared and the ultraviolet rays. It starts with red with a wavelength of 780 nm and ends with violet with 380 nm. White light (sunlight) is not really white or transparent but includes the entire colour spectrum. This becomes clear when light is broken by a prism and divided into its constituent parts. There are very many colour nuances in the spectrum, but the individual spectral colours can not be optically split further – they are “spectrally pure”. Conversely, one can rejoin the colour spectrum through a lens and get white light. Quite similar is our chakras and energy centres as well as the different energy bodies. They too are in a certain context and in a certain order of increasing frequency. The spectral colours are correspondingly found in all our bodies or represent them.
