Seeing colors – or even images and visions – while meditating is perfectly normal.
It’s actually a good thing, it symbolizes you’re good at going deep into meditation and connecting with your subconscious mind, while not focusing on the colors or visions.
There are endless theories into what certain visions and colors mean too. So, it might take a little investigation to get to the bottom of it for you, as it’s often personal experience.
It’s pretty much universally agreed, however, that seeing colors that relate to the 7 chakra points means there is an issue with that specific chakra.
It’s not something you should focus on while meditating. Allow yourself to stay present in the moment, and gather your thoughts at a later point to analyze the meaning.
The 7 Chakras and Seeing Colors While Meditating
As I mentioned, there are 7 chakra points across our bodies. Each is represented by a different color.
If you think of each chakra as a wheel that spins enabling the flow of energy throughout your body. If one point is blocked, it can cause a problem.
Here is a brief outline of the 7 chakras across your body, what each represents, and the color associated with it:
Red / The Root Chakra – This chakra represents our foundation and the feeling of being grounded.
Orange / Sacral Chakra – This chakra represents how we accept and connect with others.
Yellow / Solar Plexus Chakra – This chakra represents how confident and in control we are.
Green / Heart Chakra – This chakra represents our ability to love.
Blue / Throat Chakra – This chakra represents our ability to communicate.
Indigo / Third Eye Chakra – This chakra represents our ability to focus.
Purple / Crown Chakra – This chakra represents our ability to form spiritual connections
As you can see, purple is the color associated with the crown chakra. Seeing the color purple while meditating very likely means you’re unlocking your crown chakra or your mind is telling you there is an issue.
Seeing colors and visions while meditating can be a powerful and insightful look into our subconscious minds.
You should never focus on them at the time and draw yourself away from your meditation, but you should always evaluate what you saw afterward.
If you’re seeing purple while meditating, it almost certainly means there is a problem with your crown chakra as this is the color represented by this energy point.
Chakra imbalances can have a huge negative impact on your spiritual, mental, and physical wellness. I hope this article has helped you better understand how to interpret these visions and set you on the right path to making positive changes.
Here’s to successful meditation and finding a better spiritual and physical balance!
