Take a look at your surroundings and you will be astonished by the sheer numbers of colours you can identify. Even when we close our eyes, the darkness we see is nothing but the colour black. In all aspects of our lives there is the manifestation of colours. Why should our existence be any different?

Basics of Colour Meditation

Our existence can be distinguished into the living ā€œconsciousnessā€ and the non-living ā€œmatterā€, or our body. These two components of our existence are inter-related. The nirguna or formless consciousness drives matter (the physical body) and in turn needs the sarguna (manifest) matter to express itself. If to this equation we bring Einsteinā€™s well-known formula, E=MC2, we understand that matter is equivalent to energy, which in nature is manifested through colour vibrations, thereby implying that both consciousness and matter are impacted by energy or colour vibrations.

These colour vibrations are in turn related to our chakras, the energy centres in our bodies. Each of the chakras is associated with a particular colour and through the chakras, these colours affect what is known in the biological sciences as our neuroendocrine system, or our glands. The hormones secreted by the glands are thus affected by the chakras and the colours thereof, affecting their quality, quantity, chemical composition, etc. In turn, these hormones affect our moods, thought process, analysis, and ultimately our behaviour and actions.

Any imbalance in the colour vibrations in our bodies affects the hormones and causes disorders. In this context, we should understand that if we start correcting the manifestation of colour vibrations at the initial stage itself, we can resolve the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues affecting our well-being. This can be achieved through the practice of colour meditation, where the colour chosen during meditation begins to have its effect on the chakras, thus harmonizing our energies and healing us both within and without.       

Choosing the right colour while meditating then becomes of the utmost importance to address the imbalance of energy in our bodies. Using bright colours while meditating energizes our chakras positively, while dark colours create negativity. This is why it is essential that we focus our concentration on bright colours during meditation. This can be achieved through the correct practice of colour meditation and the chanting of mantras, and here, Preksha Meditation, which is at the core of meditation practice, comes into the picture. About that we shall discuss later.
