Kundalini Chakras: The Rainbow in You

Have you ever felt that certain colours effect you? Ever heard about the Kundalini chakras?

Do you have a lucky colour?

Is there a shirt which if you wear, the day turns from bad to worse?

Have you ever felt energized when you wear a particular colour dress?

You may find the reason if you said yes to the above questions right here in this article.

It was in our Reiki class that our master told us there was a Rainbow in each one of us. I couldn't wait to hear more.

He then told us about the energy centers in our body, the Seven Chakras. It is these energy centres that govern the functioning of the endocrine glands which in turn is responsible for the proper functioning of our body.

Each of the seven chakras has a particular colour associated with it. We get diseases when the energy of these chakras become imbalanced.

Together with the colour, there are also sounds associated with these Chakras. When you do the Chakra meditation you chant these sounds to awaken and energize these Chakras.

Stay Unfair and Beautiful in India

Nandita Das made this unique statement during the 'dark is beautiful' campaign, a much-needed awareness campaign to boost the morales of the majority of the Indian population who are bogged under the pressure to conform to the norm of 'Fair and Lovely'. Being dark skinned in India is still considered as a kind of stigma. 

Despite the fact that we Indians come in a variety of skin tones ranging from whitish to darkest brown, dark-skinned people usually face discrimination based on their colour. Especially girls.

Fair skin is often associated with a genteel, upscale lifestyle and society, which is totally not true these days. 

Did you know that in ancient India, dark skin tone was revered? Lord Krishna, Rama, Draupadi, and Goddess Parvati were supposedly dark skinned.

Marco Polo, the famous traveler, and historian mentions this about India in his travelogue.

 "For I assure you that the darkest man is here the most highly esteemed and considered better than others who are not so dark. Let me add that in very truth these people portray and depict their gods and their idols black and their devils white as snow."

It was the British who transferred their dislike for the dark brown skin to us while they made India their colony, during the darkest era in Indian history.

Now, dark skin is considered something despicable by many. Boys too face discrimination but tall, dark and handsome is still an acceptable beauty concept in India.

But if a girl child is born in a family with dark skin, she undergoes all sorts of trauma in the name of whitening her skin. Fairness creams, bleaches, ayurvedic application, the family would try anything to make her become fair and acceptable in the marriage market. Yes, that is where she is finally headed, isn’t she?

Pathetic. But that is what happens in most families. Her grades, her skills or her intelligence usually doesn’t have any bearing in their eyes.

Love is considered as an emotion they cannot think about. Society tries to drill the fact into the mind of these girls that they are not loveable.

“Who will like you?”
“Who will marry you?”
“Have you seen your face?”

 These are some of the sarcastic questions they face every now and then. The result is that many dark skinned girls develop very low self-esteem.

But dear dark-skinned beauties, let no one ever tell you that dark is not beautiful. Each one of us, whether our skin is dark or fair, is God’s creation. He has created us to enjoy a fulfilling and happy life on this planet.

Ignore all the aunties or snobs who try to pull you down by degrading your lustrous dark skin colour.

Instead, take loving care of your skin and groom yourself well. Love your unique colour and everything about you. Learn techniques to look amazing in your own unique way.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Hence, always look at your reflection in the mirror and tell yourself, you love yourself unconditionally.

Watch this space for tips and tricks to become a dark-skinned diva.

We will be introducing many dark-skinned divas in the coming days.

So, keep smiling and loving your magnificent self.
