If Anorexia is associated with the throat chakara, what about bulimia, binge eating, or other types of eating disorders?

" Anorexia nervosa (this is a multi-chakra problem but has a strong connection to the throat chakra)"

Bulimia would also be multi -chakra, not sure which it would be connected to, probably throat as well, or maybe sacral chakra.

Color in the Home

There are many variations of the basic colors. The paler versions give us the same qualities as the bold color but in a gentler way. When decorating an area - the complementary colors, and their variations, should be remembered and combined with our main choice of color by way of soft furnishings perhaps, pictures etc.

It is also helpful to take in to account the aspect of a room. For example, should you require a calming atmosphere in a north facing room, which may well be one of the colder rooms in your house, remember to use some warm colors (i.e. variations of the warm colors of yellow, orange and red) to avoid the room feeling colder.

Following is a table of colors and their suggested uses in various areas.

Color Effects Suggested

Violet: Calming for body and mind. Good for meditation and prayer. Enhances purpose and dignity. Heightens our awareness and helps us to give of our very best. Purifying.

Indigo: Sedative. Helps to open up our intuition. The colour of divine knowledge and the higher mind.

Blue: Calming, relaxing and healing. Not as sedating as indigo. Also the color of communication.

Green: Balancing, harmonizing and encourages tolerance and understanding.

Yellow: Stimulates mental activity, feeling of confidence. Helpful for study as it helps us to stay alert.

Orange: Warming and energizing. Can stimulate creativity. Orange is the colour of fun and sociability.

Red: Energizing, exciting the emotions, stimulates appetite.

Magenta: is the eighth color in the color spectrum and is a combination of red and violet, thus it combines our earthly self and spiritual self, thus balancing spirit and matter. It is uplifting and helps us to gain a feeling of completeness and fulfillment.

Turquoise: Cool and calming and good for the nervous system and immune system.

Pink: This color soothes and nurtures. It helps to dissolve anger and encourages unconditional love.



Black: Used with another color enhances the energy of that second color. Black gives us the space for reflection and inner searching.

White: Contains all the colors. It emphasizes purity and illuminates our thoughts, giving us clarity.

Areas of Use

Violet: Places of worship, entry areas to clinics and hospitals, festival areas. Pale violet
in bedrooms.

Indigo: Not suitable for areas for entertainment but for more 'quiet' places. Bedrooms, treatment rooms.

Blue: Any rooms except those used for physical activity or play.

Green: Depending upon the shade, can be used for most areas. Use with other colors as well to avoid the balance and harmony becoming more like total inactivity and indecision.

Yellow: Activity rooms, entrance halls. Not for bedrooms as can interfere with sleep - it tends to keep our minds "switched on". Not ideal for areas of possible stress.

Orange: Any activity area and creative areas. Not ideal for bedrooms or areas of possible stress.

Red: Any activity area. Needs careful choice of tone and depth and the space in which it is to be used. Can make a space look smaller and be claustrophobic. Used well, however, red can make a space feel warm and cozy. Often used in restaurants.

Magenta: Lecture spaces, chapels, halls etc. Not ideal for playrooms or activity rooms.

Turquoise: Any room except it is not ideal for activity areas.

Pink: Ideal for a baby or child's bedroom.

Black: Not ideal as a single color, but when used with care, can enhance and complement other colors in almost any situation.

White: Any room, but it can be a little intimidating to some Needs to be broken up with another color or with plants/ornaments/pictures etc.


Babies rooms
It should be remembered that babies and very young children will be more sensitive to the effects of color than adults and care should be taken with their room colors and their clothes.

A baby's first experience of color is in the womb where they are enveloped in pale peachy pink. This is where they have been nurtured and where they feel safe. Thus, decorating the baby's room in pale pink will help them feel safe in the outside world where they need time to adjust to their surroundings.

Babies are very sensitive and should be kept in white clothing as long as possible and particularly for the first nine months. Special care should be taken when choosing the color of a hat since a baby's head is particularly sensitive.

Most experts will agree that the first nine months of a baby's life is so important in their development on every level - emotional, mental and physical. Keep the colors pale for a baby's room - pale pink, pale blue, pale violet, butter cream, white and ivory are all calming.

Would babies appreciate bright astral/chakra cloured heads & tails of Paisley pattern swirls like those of the living placenta? Or sigils or runes like they pick up on & rely upon via astral senses for information before regular sight kicks in?

Or gurgly baby sounds they come out imitating as this is the resonation they have been picking up.

I love special baby gnosis they are born so attuned.

Reiki helps re-attune you somewhat to that which you have *forgotten* so you do not leave this life screaming & kicking harder than when you first entered,yet knowing even less.

Chakra awareness being essential,even just basic stuff. Some excellent *grounding* excersises can not just *help you remember the colours*,you are the colours as sure as the many sets of identical chakra(s) are you.

I think the runes in pale colors on a mobile hanging in the crib would be awesome...
I agree, attunments are necessary for a smooth transition...there is so much work being done with color therapy..it just doesn't get the attention it deserves.

That is a very cool system. Just going thru the colors and choosing my own I came up much transformation and healing and sacrificial love as well.

I'm a firm believer in color therapy.

Sanskrit Name: Muladhara
Location: Base of Spine
Color: Red

The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings.
The root chakra is related to the anus and the adrenal glands. When poorly grounded, your spatial understanding is impaired. You may stumble around physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Grounding enhances your ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis.


When the root chakra is blocked an individual may feel fearful, anxious, insecure and frustrated. Problems like obesity, anorexia nervosa, and knee troubles can occur. Root body parts include the hips, legs, lower back and sexual organs.

Foods that Fuel the Root Chakra

Root vegetables, protein-rich foods, hot and peppery spices.


Root Chakra Affirmation

The roots of a large tree spread deep underground, anchoring the tree into the earth, use your creative visualisation to imagine roots, going down from your body plunging into the depths of the planet and spreading out, just like the roots of that tree. Envision the prominent bulky roots extending downwards below the surface, broadening from the base of your spine. These roots are the essence that will, enable you to draw into your body the positive frequency of the mother earth. You are now beginning to feel the awareness of a reaction from the planet deep below the surface coursing into your space. As this occurs, you visualise the bulky roots that are beginning to entwine with the waters inside the planet's core, these waters represent the unconditional love, healing the rarefied energy of the Earth. As your roots entwine with the Earth energy use your senses to experience the awareness of unconditional love.
