Color Therapy and Meditation are both useful tools in balancing the chakras. Gardening is definitely a grounding exercise for anyone, especially someone who wants to build their sense of strength and security. Choosing the colors you want in the flowers you plant, or the clothes you wear, can assist in balancing the chakras those colors are associated with. For instance, a red scarf or tie will help you feel strong and assert your will, while orange will help you with your sexuality and relationships (sacral chakra). Wearing something bright yellow can help you realize your power (solar plexus chakra). Green (associated with the heart chakra) will help you be more loving and compassionate. A sky blue scarf could help you in your communications (balancing your throat chakra), while wearing deep blue or indigo will open up the third eye chakra and aid intuition, healing and clairvoyance.
