Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta
My brother had once attended a Reiki Seminar, when he asked the Teacher, why each chakra was represented by different colour, he was admonished saying that, it’s just how it is and he should accept it. I guess many people have the same question in mind or might have not struck some people why are the chakras denoted by different colours? I tried to figure out the answer by meditating on it, but couldn’t find any concrete answers, I asked others too, they too were not sure, then my Reiki Teacher explained me the concept, and I would like to share it with all of you.
If we have noticed, the chakras are of the sequence VIBGYOR, which is also the colour of the rainbow. The Colour Spectrum lies between Violet and Red. Above Violet is the White light which is Christ light, and our body too is covered with the White light. Below Red is Black, which consists of all the negative energies and is the lower dimension.
