Color Wash Visualization

You know how great it feels when you are in the shower.  The warm water flowing over you eases the body and mind.  You can have a waterless shower that energizes and balances you.  Many eastern traditions teach chakra balancing.  Chakras are energy centers on the body that interface with your physical, mental, spiritual, and etheric bodies.  There are traditionally seven chakras: the root, the sacral, the solar plexus, the heart, the throat, the third eye, and the crown chakras.

Traditionally each chakra has been assigned a color.  The root is red, sacral is orange, solar plexus is yellow, heart is green, throat is blue, the third eye is purple and the crown is white or gold.  Meditation teachers have taught that you focus on the color of each chakra working up the body and down the body.

However, when you are upset and in overwhelm, it can be quite difficult to remember the color order.  Even though part of your brain knows the order of the rainbow is ROY G BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet).

I have found a simpler method while doing energy work with clients.  Starting at the top of your head, (the crown chakra), breathe deeply and imagine a beam of white light entering your body.  Imagine the light getting brighter and brighter until it flows down your head and through your body.

Continue imagining the white light flowing down your body as liquid.  You will notice that your breathing becomes easier and easier.  When you feel complete with the white light imagine another color, any color you want.  Or ask your body-mind what color it needs.  Your body will know the correct color.  Continue breathing in various colors until you feel complete.

Accept any color that comes to you even if it’s a peachy silver that you can’t quite name or a watermelon pink.  Most people love doing the color wash.  It’s empowering to do it yourself.

You can do the color wash lying down, sitting up, with your eyes closed or open, and yes, even in the shower.  As you practice the color wash you will be able to do this at meetings.  By focusing on yourself you will not respond automatically to the meetings message or content, greatly relieving your stress.

After a while, you can color wash the entire meeting room.  You can also apply the color wash to a medical office, dental office, job interview or classroom.  Just watch the energies change!

Are you aware of how energy flows through your body? Do you have strategies in place to clear and balance your energy?
