Recognizing the Rainbow Within

In ancient Indian philosophy it is strongly believed that whatever exists in our external world is reflected within. At some point in our life, we have all admired the beauty of the rainbow in the sky and exclaimed in joy!! The same rainbow exists in our body as well and when in perfect alignment, we are in good health and happiness. Rainbow refers to the colours of the 7 crucial energy points (Chakras) within our energy body. This energy body exists beyond our physical body which governs our mood. Often, our affinity for certain colours is related to the alignment of our energy body. To know more about the chakras and methods to keep them aligned for physical and emotional well being, it will be worthwhile to take a course in Yoga from a knowledgeable teacher.
