Do You Know ROY GBIV?

Before I completely woke-up to who I really was, a spirit having a physical experience, a number of strange things occurred.  I began to notice what appeared to be waves of air moving in front of me.  If I stopped and paid attention, these air waves would come together and form wheel-like vortices of different colours.  Those colours would spin rapidly, about a foot in front of my face.  Sometimes the colours would vanish.  More often, however, if I really concentrated on them, the vortices would blow-up into what looked like a small movie screen filled with fast moving images.

Gradually, I came to realize that I was clairvoyant and the pictures I was seeing were ‘visions’.  For years, however, I remained puzzled about what the spinning was.  Curious, I asked all kinds of people if they had ever seen ‘spinning’ in their dreams or when they were just waking up and were still in a lucid state.  At the time, nobody seemed to know what I was talking about.  Just at a point when I decided I must be losing my mind, I learned about chakras.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel” or “turning”.  Chakras are the body’s focal points or energy centres for the reception and transmission of energies.  When I finally learned this, it made sense that I would see chakras spinning in front of my face just before a vision appeared, since visions are simply another form of communication, in my case, a non-verbal form.

There are different belief systems about chakras.  However, if you had a photograph taken of your chakras, you would notice 7 colours of the rainbow.  Let me introduce you to ROY GBIV.

ROY GBIV is an acronym you can use to remember the colours of the rainbow:  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.  The chakra colours fall into the same order as the rainbow, starting with Red, the Base chakra and ending with Violet, the Crown chakra.

Wearing or surrounding yourself with chakra colours can lead to balance and inner healing.  When you are fully healed and balanced, your chakras will become perfectly formed.  For example, if you have been working on meditation and developing your third eye chakra, it will appear as a perfectly formed circle of indigo energy.  Someone who comes from a place of fear and is afraid to express their true feelings may suffer from throat problems.  In this case, their throat chakra will appear as a blue blur instead of a perfectly round ball.

So think of Mr. ROY GBIV to remember all the colours of the rainbow.  When you surround yourself with all the colours, you will have a more balanced, healthy and energetic life.
