Will I See Colors in the Chakras?


Regarding chakra clearing and balancing, is it an imaginary action, or after practice I will be able to see color at the energy points?

Dear Bani, Thank you for your question. I have been teaching classes on the chakras and working with them intensively in my own life for over 35 years, and I can truthfully say that they are in no way imaginary! They are very real and they influence everything in our lives, for better or for worse.

Instead of the terms “chakra clearing” or “chakras balancing,” I prefer to use the term “purifying the chakras” — it is a truer description of what we are trying to do. The ways we strive to do this are through meditation, attitude changing, and many other techniques, all of which are very effective in helping us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

But when we work with the chakras, it is important not to seek phenomena only, for example, trying to see colors of the chakras. These things do happen eventually as a natural outcome of the purification of the chakras, but it is not helpful to have them as a primary goal.

The main goals of all chakra techniques are to help you deepen your spiritual life, your meditations, your devotion to God and Guru; and to help your change your all your attitudes from harmful ones to beneficial ones, which in turn, will offer you unimaginable happiness and inner peace.
