Have you been seeing purple during meditation?
If so, this might be your subconscious mind revealing that you have an imbalance or some kind of issue with your crown chakra (which is represented by the color purple).
I had this exact scenario a couple of years ago. I would see a white light first, followed by a purple swirling motion in the center of my line of vision.
I was experiencing some emotional difficulties at the time and going through some personal problems. These meditation visions were what sparked my recovery, so I’m hoping I can help some of you too.
Why Do We See Colors While Meditating?
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.

What Does the Purple (Crown) Chakra Do?
All chakras are important, but the crown chakra is particularly important for spiritual awareness.
Being at the top of the head, it’s the point where you can connect your consciousness with a higher state of consciousness through meditation.
A healthy and fully functioning crown chakra allows us to experience spiritual growth, connect with the universe, and better understand our own emotions.
Is this starting to make sense? Are you tying together seeing a purple haze with a disconnection to the spiritual world and universe?
Some of the common symptoms associated with a blocked or underperforming crown chakra include:
- Lacking inspiration, clarity, or direction
- Feeling a lack of awareness of what’s going on around you
- Feeling disconnected with your spiritual side
- Being generally discontented or confused about the direction of your life
If some of these symptoms apply to you, and you have been seeing purple during your meditations – this is a clear sign that you have a problem with your crown chakra.
Meditation Techniques to Help Unlock Your Crown Chakra
There are a few lifestyle changes you can make to address chakra imbalances. Personally, for the crown chakra, I find meditation is an effective way of addressing an imbalance.
Next time you meditate, all you need to do is make a few changes to focus on your crown as follows:
- When you have 5-10 minutes to yourself, sit somewhere comfortable. If you normally lay down when meditating, try sitting for this technique.
- Rest your hands where they are comfortable, and turn your hands so your palms are facing up.
- Close your eyes, and start with three deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.
- Start breathing normally and entering your normal state of meditation. Now picture a lotus on your forehead, and slowly imagine the petals floating away.
- You should see a purple or white light appearing. Don’t focus on the light, just let the vision take you where it wants to.
- Allow a warmth to radiate from your forehead. The more you do this, the larger the area this warmth should cover.
Do this meditation for a few days in a row and reflect on how you feel. How have your visions changed while meditating? Do you feel more spiritually connected, at least a small step forward?

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!
