- Wear whites and soft neutral colors
If you have meditation experience, most likely you have seen people wearing white clothing during meditation classes. There are a lot of reasons lie behind it. “Colors create an uncontrollable action in your subconscious mind of inspiration, productivity, and expansion,” said Yogi Bhajan
, who is most known for bringing Kundalini yoga to the United States in the 1970s.In color psychology
white represents purity and innocence (think about a traditional white wedding dress in many cultures). The color white is like a blank canvas that symbolizes a new beginning and a fresh start. It can also be interpreted as a color of cleanliness, freshness, and simplicity. It is believed that initially, a person comes into the world as a clean white sheet.Energetically speaking,
white is thought to be a very high vibrational color, relating to pure healing light, divine connection, and higher consciousness. The chances are that you came across guided meditations in your practice, where you asked to imagine white healing light flowing through the top of your head and filling every part of your body.Chakra-wise,
white is associated with the crown chakra or sahasrāra
chakra in Sanskrit. It is known as “the bridge to the cosmos.” It is the most spiritual in nature of all seven chakras located above the crown of the head. It acts as the individual’s center of spirit, enlightenment, wisdom, universal consciousness, and connection to higher guidance. The crown chakra is our highest potential and is responsible for a healthy spiritual life.Wearing whites extends your aura.
Auras are thought of as the unseen field of energy surrounding a person's physical body and different colors are associated with different emotional states and states of mind. White is the rarest of all aura colors as it combines all colors and indicates clarity, goodness, integrity, and a high level of spirituality, generosity, and wisdom.
Wearing white is also a kind of meditation itself, as it takes a lot of mindfulness to take care of white clothes. As Yogi Bhajan
once said: “The most difficult thing on this planet is to wear white from top to bottom; white, it is the greatest therapy”. If you ever wore a head-to-toe white outfit at least once in your life, you might remember the feeling of how you automatically slowed down and moved more consciously with less rush.
