Wisdom Wednesday: Paul Gaugin on Color

Color which, like music, is a matter of vibrations, reaches what is most general and therefore most indefinable in nature: its inner power... 

I love color. I love being surrounded by color in my environment, viewing colorful art, and creating colorful art. I love the fact that color is not only all around us, but within us as well. 

For the past year or so I've been learning to meditate on the chakras, which in yoga are energy centers that reach from the base of our spines to the crown of the head. They relate to different organs and systems in the body, and each has a color associated with them. Here's a quick primer on chakras from Mind Body Green.  And a little more about chakras with associated yoga poses from Yoga Journal
