Seeing Colors In Meditation? Here’s What That Means!

Before my awakening, I would often see flashes of colors when I closed my eyes. They were bright, took up what felt like infinite space, and became more and more frequent. Back then, I didn’t really think anything of it, I simply admired them. As I began my spiritual journey and started to learn more about the chakra system I couldn’t help but wonder if there was a connection in there somewhere.

Over the years I’ve figured out the connection between seeing colors and what they mean. Today I want to share that with you.

The chakras are the energy centers within the body. They often correlate directly to our current state and even ailments that have manifested within the body.

The crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is a vibrant white/violet color. This chakra connects us to Source energy and is the gateway to our intuition. When blocked this can cause anxiety, disassociation, and even headaches.

The third eye chakra is located in between the brows (more about that here) and the correlating color is purple. This is where our clairvoyance manifests! The third eye helps us to see all perspectives and is imperative for intuitive work.

The throat chakra is located in the throat and the correlating color is blue. The throat chakra gets blocked easily when we don’t speak our truth!

The heart chakra is located in the center of the chest and the correlating color is green. This chakra allows us to give and receive love. It can become blocked through pain and trauma.

The solar plexus chakra is located just below the diaphragm and its correlating color is yellow! The seed to the soul – the filter if you will! All emotions and feelings run through this baby! I like to think of it as the piece that binds it all together to help everything run smoothly.

The sacral chakra located in the lower abdomen and the correlating color is orange. This chakra is where our sexual and creative energy is held! Low sex drive? Try clearing this baby out!

The root chakra is located at the base of the tailbone and the correlating color is red! This chakra grounds us, connects us to Mother Earth and helps with our sense of reality.

When you’re seeing colors in meditation a few things may be going on!

  1. Working on opening all or a specific chakra? If you’re seeing the correlating color this is validation that it’s working!

  2. If you’ve been feeling blocked in some area of life your guides may be showing you which chakra you should be focusing on.

  3. If you’ve asked a question or set an intention to find answers before your meditation it may show up in the form of a color. Ask yourself if that chakra is trying to tell you something. For instance “what is holding me back from living the life I want? Why haven’t I got that promotion yet” you may be shown blue and purple. This may be an indicator of not speaking your truth. Either to those around you or maybe you’re not being honest with yourself. The purple may indicate that you need to pay more attention to what is going on around you and not just what you want to see!

  4. If you have set the intention to start working with your gifts and you start seeing purple and white congrats! This is a good indicator that you’re opening up and your guides are supporting you along the way!

Another thing to note; when you’re doing something actively meditative you may be shown colors too. For instance, if you’re in the middle of ahema passionate moment – you may start seeing the color orange. This is an indicator that the sacral charka is activateddddd. It’s a good time to channel that spiritual energy into your moment of passion!

If you’re giving a psychic reading and you start seeing random colors

The same indicators as above apply! It is then up to you to figure out if their chakra is blocked or if their guides are just trying to use the chakra to help you decode the message!

Example: Your chest is suddenly tight, you’re seeing the color green, and then they show you a brick wall. This message could mean something like there are relationship issues in your client’s life and she has been closing herself off from love out of fear of getting hurt. Chest = anxiety (in this case). Green= heart charka. Brick wall = borders, boundaries, tough to break through.

Spirit gives us the clues and the treasure map. It’s our job to decode it in order to get to the buried treasure or in this case the underlying issue that needs to be healed!

Like what you’ve read here and now you’re craving more? I can help you with decoding the messages, symbols, and clues that spirit has been giving you! This is just one of the benefits of spiritual coaching!
