Introduce Children to Chakras to Help Them Shine Bright

Introduce Children to Chakras to Help Them Shine Bright

Can you remember a time when you saw someone truly 'shining bright'?

It might be a memory of yourself in an amazing moment, or your children, a friend or family member...

We all know that feeling of watching someone radiate happiness and joy from the inside out. In those moments, their soul is shining bright! 

As parents, educators, therapists, this is what we hope for all children - that they learn to take care of their wellbeing in such a way that allows them to shine bright as much as possible.

One powerful way of helping them to achieve this is by introducing children to their chakras. Teaching children to visualise and understand their chakras can empower them to nurture their energetic well-being.

How can we explain our chakras to kids?

We can say - have you ever wondered about the amazing energy in our body? Our bodies are made up of lots of tiny particles called cells. And our cells are full of energy that keeps us alive and helps us do everything we do.

And how does our energy move inside us? Well it circulates through our body, spinning through invisible wheels known as chakras. These wheels spin around and around, just like colourful pinwheels, and they help our energy move smoothly throughout our body.

Our chakras are like magical energy centers, we can't see them with our eyes, but we can feel their effects. They store and balance our energy, just like batteries store power for our toys.

How many chakras do we have?

We have a lot of chakras, including seven big ones. Each chakra has a number, name, colour and position in our body:

1. Base chakra (red) at the bottom of the spine

2. Sacral chakra (orange) below the belly button

3. Solar Plexus chakra (yellow) in the tummy, above the belly button

4. Heart chakra (green) in the chest

5. Throat chakra (blue) in the throat

6. Minds Eye chakra (indigo/purple) between the eyes on the forehead

7. Crown chakra (violet/white) at the top of the head

Gemstones and Chakras!

We can teach children to use gemstones to help to balance their chakras. We can explain that each gemstone corresponds to a specific chakra, and when our chakras are balanced, our souls shine even brighter. Children can match gemstones to the colorful gem pages in "My Soul Treasure" and say the corresponding positive affirmation. They can also hold a gemstone to its matching chakra on their body and repeat the affirmation.

Chakra Colour-Matching Food!

Children will love this one! To help balance our chakras, we can eat food that is the colour of the chakra we wish to help balance. Letting children have fun preparing their own snacks of a single colour can help foster a sense of mindfulness, creativity and curiosity about the energetic aspects of the body.

1. Base chakra (red) eat strawberries, watermelon, apples and beetroot.

2. Sacral chakra (orange) eat oranges, pumpkin, apricots and carrots.

3. Solar Plexus chakra (yellow) try bananas, pineapples, corn and yellow capsicum. 

4. Heart chakra (green) try a green smoothie! Or broccoli, peas, spinach, kiwi or grapes. 

5. Throat chakra (blue) there aren't many natural blue foods, but we can eat blueberries, blackberries, or purple grapes. 

6. Minds Eye chakra (indigo/purple) eat blackberries, blueberries, or purple cabbage.

7. Crown chakra (violet/white) try eggplants, cauliflower, or purple potatoes.


Introducing children to our chakras opens a world of self-discovery, inner radiance and emotional balance.

As parents, educators, and therapists, we play a vital role in guiding children on this path of self-discovery. Through the exploration of chakras, we provide them with valuable tools for a balanced and fulfilling life.

Let's empower children to let their souls shine bright and embrace their inherent sparkle.
