I’ve been a member of the gym here for a short time and I love going to the sauna. I’m always aware of the energy flow within my body and the balance between my chakras as I work up a sweat. It’s so important to check in from time to time and to take note of the colors that drift into your mind as you workout. Having an understanding of these colors will give you a really good workout spiritually and allow you to practice that eye brow raising skill of intuiting healing needs. You may find you’re exercising in a cloud of yellow in your mind’s eye, for example, and that means you probably need to set more stringent boundaries for yourself and foster a bit of self-respect.
But as we can equally intuit the colors cascading around our aura, we can also get a boost from external sources. It’s simply a matter of sitting in a pool of the light you want but it’s not so readily available in every country. This is something I realized I was missing the other day as I sat in the dark sauna, enjoying the heat but… in darkness!
A sauna is such a great way to clear out your system but you can focus on cleansing a particular chakra if you physically bathe in colors. This is something that is routinely available in saunas in Germany, where I lived for several years, and it gives you the chance to give yourself a really deep spiritual workout, also.
As you soak up the heat of a sauna, it helps if it’s a light place filled with colorful rays. In Germany, where the lights change in a sequence that provides you with all the colors of the rainbow, you get to work through each chakra in a schedule that’s pre-determined for you. You don’t need to know the meanings of all the healing colors, or even the sequence they occur in the rainbow, but it can help you focus on the healing properties.
Sometimes you’ll find that some saunas will play bells to accompany the colors. This is such a wonderfully all encompassing experience.
Even without the bells, if you relax and let yourself dissolve into the color you’ll find that there’s a subliminal hum – the hum of the Universal energy – that resonates with your body. The colors change and the resonance alters – this becomes the most natural and spiritual melody in the world.
In the absence of lights in the sauna I attend, I’ve started to visualize the colors. Believe me, it works just as well but you need a bit more discipline and it helps if you have a vivid imagination. It means, however, that wherever you are experiencing the joys of detoxing in a sauna, you can reap the benefits of chakra colors in the sauna and the sound of healing colors music.
