Got Energy? Feeding Your Inner Rainbow

We think of energy as being physical – the boundless energy of children, nervous energy, and so on – but energy is actually fuel, and your physical self depends on the energy from your subtle energy body. Your vitality, or lack thereof, comes from feeding yourself energetically. What I call feeding your Inner Rainbow. Here's how it works:

Your Chakras collect universal healing energy and distribute it throughout your physical body. This energy radiates from within and surrounds your physical body as your aura. The colors of the aura represent both the health of the physical and subtle energy bodies. A healthy, well fed, aura protects you from external physical and emotional pollutants.

Years of not taking care of yourself depletes you energetically. You leave bits and pieces of your energy behind causing something I call Leaky Aura (shown right). This leaves you susceptible to absorbing unwanted energies from others.

Initially this imbalance may not be apparent on the surface; however, it could lead to long term disease that can eventually reach your physical body – something that is more difficult to reverse. Leaky Aura causes stress, excessive mental chatter, depression, anxiety, and more.

Healing Leaky Aura

When you are full of your own energy, the only energy that can penetrate is conscious spirit energy collected by the Chakras. As you consciously focus on filling your Leaky Aura, you fill the spaces that allow other energies in. Eventually, your aura will more resemble the one pictured to the left.

Your healthy aura protects you from absorbing unwanted energy. The universal healing energy collected by your Chakras comes from nature, positivity, and joy; some simple ways to infuse your Chakras are:

  • A walk in nature

  • A trip to the beach

  • Fun, laughter, and activities you love

  • Items/products infused with spirit energy - EnergyCeuticals - such as Gemstones and Flower Essences

  • Universal healing energy such as Reiki (check out the Bertaut Reiki class schedule.)

  • Products infused with Reiki energy, including Petal Potions Mood Mists

  • Play: puppies, kittens, and toddlers are great sources of healing energy

  • Take a Bertaut Reiki class

Have you noticed how you feel revitalized after time in nature or a good belly laugh? This is color energy. You are full of Color… which translates to energy, vitality, and health. When you are full of color life looks brighter, you have less stress, and you are able to accomplish more of what is important to you. You look brighter too. People might say to you that you “glow.”

Healthy Chakras = Healthy Body

The colors of Nature's rainbow are the same as the colors of your inner rainbow the Chakra system. These energy centers distribute color energy through and around your body. This energy feeds your purpose, innate gifts, talents, and passion for life. Think of Chakras as the organs to your subtle energy body. Most people see the correlation between a healthy spirit and a healthy body; what many people don't realize is that healthy chakras make for a healthy spirit.

We understand that when the organs of your physical body are healthy you have physical health. And...when your Chakras are full of color energy you have energetic health. Because, the energy body feeds the physical body and the physical body feeds the energy body, your overall health is dependent on taking care of both.

Take a look at the organs and systems associated with each of the Chakras. When you feed your inner rainbow with color energy you contribute to the health of your body, mind and spirit.

1st Chakra - located at the tailbone - color red:
Adrenal glands, colon, lymph & skeletal systems, male reproductive organs

2nd Chakra - located below the navel - color orange:
Ovaries, female reproductive organs, spleen, skin, kidneys

3rd Chakra - located at the solar plexus - color yellow:
Pancreas, gall bladder, liver, stomach, Peripheral Nervous System (all the nerves outside of the brain and spine), muscles, diaphragm

4th Chakra - located at the heart - colors green and pink:
Thymus, lymph glands, heart, circulatory and immune systems, lungs, arms, hands

5th Chakra - located at the throat - color blue:
Thyroid, parathyroid, throat, hypothalamus, mouth

6th Chakra - located at the 3rd eye (between the eyebrows) - color indigo:
Pituitary gland, Central Nervous System, cerebellum, left eye, nose, ears

7th Chakra - located at the crown - color violet:
Pineal gland, Central Nervous System, cerebral cortex, and right eye

Notice how when you spend time in the beauty of nature, you feel revitalized? You are full of Color… which translates to energy, vitality, and health. Surrounding yourself with the colors of nature is the best way to feed your inner rainbow – your chakras.

When you are full of color life looks brighter, you don’t have as much stress, and you are able to accomplish more of what is important to you. You look brighter too. People might say to you that you “glow.” This is color energy. Isn't it time you got your "Glow" on?

How to Feed Your Chakras

I spend a lot of time talking about feeding your inner rainbow to fuel your chakras; I figured it was time to get specific about how.

As color energy centers, chakras need the fuel provided by nature’s color energy. The most obvious form of energy comes from food. The colorful fruits and vegetables the health industry is encouraging everyone to consume do wonders for your chakras as well as your diet.

However, color energy has a multitude of other sources:

  • Clothing: Wear natural fabrics in the color of the chakra that needs stimulating.
  • Environment: Use paint, art, and colored lighting to charge your chakras.
  • Gemstones & Minerals: There is more than just beauty in those rocks. The color energy they contain makes them a healing addition to your jewelry box and décor. Rose quartz, amethyst, jade, and citrine are just a few examples of gemstones you could add to your collection.

The more you feed your chakras with the color energy from nature, the healthier you will be on all levels:

  • Spiritual: The cure for disease is prevention, which starts when we feed our spirit. Being full of color energy keeps the “whole” person healthy.
  • Physical: Your body thrives on color nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables. The minerals in these foods are the catalysts for numerous cellular activities in the body.
  • Emotional: Being full of color energy helps you feel peaceful, content, and whole.
  • Mental: The healthiest minds are quiet, free of mental chatter. In this mindset, we are able to intuit and have conscious thought.

Our environment, what we eat, as well as how we think and act has an energy value that directly impacts our health and vitality. Eating fresh food from the garden, sharing a smile, feeling love, and performing good deeds supplies us with the most vitality. On the other hand, highly processed foods, negative thoughts, and anger diminish energy.

Show your true colors by feeding your inner rainbow with the beauty of nature. Introducing fresh fruits, herbal teas, and colorful gemstones to your life will improve your health, vitality, and energy levels.

The 7 Chakras Explained

 Each Chakra has its own personality and represents a unique aspect of your essence. When you understand the energy that fuels each Chakra you can see how each one contributes to your Chakraliciousness. Here is a brief overview of how the Chakras work together:

  1. The first Chakra is the most physical and provides you the energy to survive, thrive, and take action to walk your unique path in life.
  2. The second Chakra is an emotional center and provides the ability to create, feel, relate to others, and create your life with passion.
  3. The third Chakra is mental and provides you with the ability to learn, communicate your personal truth, and project your external image to others.
  4. The fourth Chakra connects you to your inner self and to connect to nature’s rhythm, experience “unconditional” love, heartfelt resonance, and have conscious awareness.
  5. The fifth Chakra is your communication center and allows you to accept the many facets that make you unique to express yourself authentically.
  6. The sixth Chakra is your third eye and provides clear vision to see the big picture, how you fit into the picture, and take the steps needed to actualize your vision.
  7. The seventh Chakra is the most etheric energy, allowing you to intuit and receive conscious information to guide you on your path.

When you use the Chakra energy available to you, you act from your whole self; body, mind and spirit:

You receive information from a conscious source (7th Chakra) so you have clear vision to see how you fit into the big picture (6th Chakra). You can then clearly communicate (5th Chakra) your vision from the heart with love and compassion (4th Chakra). You have the will and perseverance (3rd Chakra) to bring your vision into the physical world with creativity and passion (2nd Chakra) so you can take action and walk your unique path in life (1st Chakra).

Stress, anxiety, depression, and constant mental chatter are signs of not utilizing your innate abilities to create your life through intuition and feelings. It is time to move out of your head for the answers and to tap into your intuition and feelings to guide you along your path. -Linda Bertaut

What are Chakras?

The colors in Nature's rainbow are the same as the colors of our inner rainbow, the Chakra system.

Chakra is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “wheel of light.” Aligned in the center of the body near the spinal column, each Chakra is associated with a color, sense, sound, endocrine gland and organs.

The first Chakra has the most physical energy while the seventh has the most etheric energy. As you work your way up from the first chakra to the seventh you have more conscious awareness about who you are and why you are here. Being consistently out of balance in one or more Chakras can affect the health of the physical body’s associated organs. It also affects your mental and emotional health which shows up as stress, anxiety, depression and constant mental chatter.

This is why it is important to feed yourself energetically with practices such as yoga, meditation, Reiki, spending time in nature and doing things you love to do in order to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Eastern and indigenous cultures have words to describe this energy as well; the Chinese call it Chi, the Japanese call it Ki, and East Indians call it Prana.

Ever wonder why you have symptoms of an illness before the illness actually shows up? The illness manifests on an energy level first. When you fuel your Chakras/Inner Rainbow with the color energy from nature you help to prevent disease, stress, depression and more. How Chakralicious are you? © Linda Bertaut

7 Major Chakras

The colors in Nature's rainbow are the same as the colors in the human subtle energy body called the Chakra system.

Chakra is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “wheel of light.” Aligned in the center of the body near the spinal column, each Chakra is associated with a color, sense, sound, endocrine gland and organs.

The first Chakra has the most physical energy, to ground you to Mother earth while the seventh is the most energetic, allowing you to receive intuitive insights.

As you work your way up the Chakra system from the 1st to the 7th, you have more conscious awareness about who you are and how you fit into the larger scheme of things. The subtle energy of the Chakras feeds your physical body.

Being consistently out of balance in one or more Chakras can affect the health of the physical body’s associated organs, as well as mental, emotional and energetic health. This is why it is important to feed yourself energetically with practices such as yoga, meditation, Reiki, spending time in nature and doing things you love to do in order to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Eastern and indigenous cultures have words to describe this energy; the Chinese call it Chi, the Japanese call it Ki, and in India it is called Prana. Western culture calls it subtle energy body, essence or spirit.

Ever wonder why you have symptoms of an illness before the illness actually shows up? It is manifesting on an energy level first. If you fuel your Chakras/Inner Rainbow with the color energy from nature you can help to prevent disease, stress, depression and more. If you have stress, anxiety or mental chatter...your Chakras are out of balance.
