Everything vibrates! The world is alive with vibrations of sound and light and our bodies vibrate along with all things in the universe. Color is one of the manifestations of vibration. You may have heard of “color therapy.” Try matching the colorful foods below to balance your Chakras and enhance your wellbeing.
According to a variety of Eastern teachings, within each of us is a network of 7 subtle energy centers known as “chakras” (Sanskrit for “wheels”) that receive and give out energy. Each center is associated with a certain color vibration. In a healthy state, energy from these centers flows well. A chakra can become blocked or imbalanced from emotional, mental, or spiritual stress; disrupted energy flow can lead to diminished health in those areas. As teaching about chakras has developed over time, so have many practices and tools for chakra balancing.
Nature has provided a cornucopia of foods that carry colorful vibrations to help activate and balance your chakras. Here’s a list of enticing colorful foods and the chakras each can help with. Pay particular attention as you read through the foods for those that elicit strong images or even cravings. These messages from within may be especially helpful in choosing foods to help with chakra balancing and the energy of your chakras.
: This chakra vibrates with the colors of red, dark brown, dark gray and black and connects us to feelings of being part of a community, or “tribe.” To fortify, this chakra try root vegetables such as beets, carrots and sweet potato; edible and medicinal mushrooms, protein, (especially animal protein), and red-colored foods like pomegranate, apple, and radish.
: Vibrating with Orange hues, this chakra houses our creativity and sexuality and allows us to "go with the flow" of life. Enjoy orange colored foods like tangerines, oranges, carrots, sweet potato, papaya, mango, pineapple as well as fish, especially wild caught salmon, and healthy fats and oils.
Solar Plexus Chakra
: Yellow foods share the color vibration for this chakra which expresses our personal power, balance of energy flow and radiates our “true self” outward. Try yellow lentils, sweet yellow corn, yellow peppers, legumes, whole grains and healthy carbohydrates.
: Green rose and pink shades are the colors associated with this loving, healing chakra. Green colored vegetables rich in chlorophyll like broccoli, cabbage, kale, leafy greens, sprouts and raw foods are on the menu here!
: As the portal for communication, the Throat Chakra expresses the truth for the other chakras. Associated with colors of light blues and aquamarine, a wide variety of foods including sea vegetables, fruits, juices, soups that bring together elements such as earth and water, and ethnic foods may all be helpful.
Third Eye Chakra
: Associated with visions, dreams, and Divine guidance, this chakra’s colors of indigo and violet invite us to try purple-red foods such as blackberry, blueberry, red onion, purple grape, purple potato, and red wine, as well as chocolate, tea, coffee and spices.
: Associated with “spirit” more than “matter,” this chakra is associated with white, lavender and pastel colors. Since it thrives on air, sunlight, and love, this is the “food” with which we should nourish our crown Chakra for a greater-felt connection with Higher Power, or Higher self.
Enjoy the blessing of our gifts from nature as you incorporate their colorful vibrations into your diet for sustenance and balance!
