How to use Color Coding for Wellness

In this world, maintaining our physical, mental, and emotional well-being has never been more crucial. As we strive to strike a balance between goal-achieving, being present for family and friends, and excelling in our careers, it’s easy to overlook the importance of holistic wellness. Fortunately, Mother Earth has blessed us with a powerful guide that can help us navigate with ease: Color Coding for Wellness.

Not only does wellness color coding simplify the way we approach self-care but it also enhances our understanding of the interconnectedness between different aspects of our well-being. In this guide, we will explore this concept, delve into its principles, and learn how to effectively apply it to various facets of our lives, ultimately leading to a more harmonious and balanced state of well-being. So, let’s embark on this journey of wellness, using the vibrant language of colors as our guide to a healthier and more fulfilling life.

What is Color Coding For Wellness?

Simply put, color coding for wellness utilizes Chakra colors for crystals, foods, candles, etc. to elevate our minds, bodies, and spirits. We’ll expand on this momentarily but first let’s explore how crystals benefit our bodies and their connection to our Chakras.

What is Crystal Healing?

Crystal healing, also known as lapidary medicine, is the belief that gemstones have healing properties. Here are some key notes about crystals.

  • All of nature vibrates. When 2 frequencies/vibrations meet, they start to sync and vibrate at the same frequency.
  • Entrainment is defined as the adjustment or moderation of one behavior either to synchronize or to be in rhythm with another behavior.
  • Crystals harness the energies of the earth, the sun, the moon, the ocean, etc.
  • The energy signature of our body manifests through seven primary Chakras, which serve as energy hubs aligning with specific nerve clusters and internal organs. These centers can either be open or blocked.

Crystals possess a consistent vibrational frequency that resonates in the same pitch as human beings. Unlike our ever-changing bodies, crystals’ frequencies remain unaltered, making them ideal tools for realigning our energy. They empower us to optimize our healing potential.

Placing charged crystals directly on our bodies, wearing them as jewelry, or placing them in our living and working spaces can be beneficial to achieving our intentions for our lives.

Whether you want to bring more peace, abundance, protection, love, etc to your mind and soul or are looking to physically heal ailments, aligning your Chakras via crystal healing may be vital. Now let’s explain how color coding for wellness works.

How to use Color Coding For Wellness

I like to think of this guide as a cheat code for wellness. Similar to memes that teach us that foods shaped like our organs are good for those organs, crystals, foods, candles, clothes, etc that match the color of our Chakras are great for working with those energy centers. Let’s examine each Chakra for a clearer understanding.

If you’re new to the world of color coding, there’s no pressure to attempt to “fix” everything all at once. Instead, start by selecting the aspect that you believe would bring the most relief to your life, and gradually work your way through the others. Take deliberate steps in how you allocate your time, prioritize rest, choose the company you keep, curate the information you absorb from your surroundings, nourish your body, and, above all, practice kindness and patience with yourself.

Remember, this isn’t a race but a lifelong journey. I aspire to keep learning and experiencing new things even when I reach 80. I also recognize the importance of caring for my body today to ensure that my organs, bones, and muscles will keep me agile and ready for whatever adventures come my way in my elder years.
