Chakra Colors – Poem of the Month – August 2021

Chakra Colors

The colors of earth speak to me
In tones of vermilion, red ochre and umber
My root grounds me
I am centered

Amber and burnt orange 
Remind me I am creative and joyful

And shades of Goldenrod and citrine
Reveal the power within me

Verdant forest greens and
Semi-precious malachite
Tell me I am worthy of love

The hues of the sky
help me speak my truth

and Lapis Lazuli hones my intuition 
so my third eye sees clearly

Amethyst the color of twilight
Representing my higher consciousness 
Balances my body and soul
I am at one with the universe

    AH YES! I totally agree about the power of color .. how it impacts us, its shades, nuances, the emotion it churns. This is a GREAT poem.

    Chakras as your muse — I couldn’t think of anything more healing and insightful. I felt all the colors of the chakras in my seeping into my heart and soul. Beautiful, soothing words, Christine…a balm for the spirit. 🙏

    A beautiful journey through the chakra spectrum: I must learn more about the chakra, than the little bit I know from yoga. This is my second attempt at commenting so you may get this twice!

    A beautiful response Christine: I enjoyed this journey through the chakra spectrum. I must learn more about them! I know a little bit from yoga, but I’m sure there is much more to learn…

      Thank you Ingrid. Yes, when your life is out of balance you know which one (or all) can help you. I did receive both your comments. I still struggle with WP too when it comes to commenting on certain sites. I still don’t understand why it has to be so difficult 😞
