Everyday we stimulate our chakra centers in one way or another, for example, through the different thoughts we have or physically through our senses. Daily we energize our centers, consciously or unconsciously, through various methods. Following is a list of common ways we charge our chakra centers

Thoughts
Thought is an energy form. Science has proven a positive thought allows our energy to flow freely and unrestricted. Whereas, negative thoughts decrease energy within our body. Every thought (whether mental or emotional) is connected to a chakra. For example, a passionate thought is a red energy stimulant, but an angry thought decreases one's positive red energy flow. This means that continual angry thoughts will lower your root chakra's energy.
The Sun
This is our most important energy source. Through light all the seven color energies flow from the suns rays to the earth. People, animals, plants, minerals, water and our chakras receive energy from the suns light. (If you are not able to enjoy the sun for a few hours daily, add a quality full spectrum light bulb to a light source in your work area or in a lamp at home.)
Food
When the sun gives the plant life/energy. Once the plant absorbs energy, the color energy that remains is the energy of that fruit, vegetable or flower. Without this energy our body could not assimilate the nutritional value of the food. Balance your chakras daily by eating foods that contain each of the seven color energies (thats why the doctor always said to eat a plate of different colored foods... for the color value!).
Visualization
Meditation & Breathing . Since thought is an energy form you can stimulate your chakra centers through meditation, visualization or breathing energy into your various chakra centers. By adding the color intention adds additional power from a chakras vibration.
crystals
Crystals cary powerful energy imprints within them and are a energy forms. For example, crystals contain a similar crystalline structure as the human body. Crystals amplify energy and can be programmed (e.g. computer chips and watches). Wearing crystal jewelry or placing crystals and stones in your environment is a simple way to absorb the stone or crystal's  healing vibrations. I like to put them in my left hand and hear the messages from the stones within me:)
Color Bathing
Water is a conductor of energy and color is an energy. While lying in the colored water your body absorbs the vibrational frequency from the color. Take the time to give back to your body and soul! While bathing, balance that chakra by thinking about what you would like to achieve from that specific energy and maybe add the correlating aromatherapy oil. Do not use chemical food coloring to dye your water. I recommend Colour Bath by Colour Energy Corporation, as it is totally organic and therefore safe to use, and it won't permanently dye your skin

Aromatherapy

I love Essential oils as they are of mother earth and the pure essence of the plant or flower. Every oil has a vibration that correlates to a color. Oils contain the healing properties of herbs, flowers or plants.
I  Use only therapeutic quality oils (inexpensive oils may contain toxins). When you dilute with a carrier oil you can use it on your skin or in a bath).

Music & Dance

Music effects us in a positive or negative way. Every musical note corresponds to a color and chakra center. I like to use soothing ocean sounds for a calming effect, or I also like to use asian sounds from the orient:) Certain sounds can stimulate an emotional, mental, physical or spiritual response. E.g. Listening or dancing to primal music, such as the beating of drums, can energize your physical body and stimulate your root chakra.

Toning & Sounds

We can vocally make sounds to vibrate at the same frequency as various organs in our body. Regular toning can help keep our body's organs functioning properly. Noise pollution can be very disturbing to our environment. Surround yourself with sounds, which make you happy and productive!

Color Toning

By shining of light through various color filters directly onto the body, the vibration of the color will be absorbed through your skin effecting the designated area. I also like to wear the colors to stimulate the different chakras:)

 Solarized Water

Charge water by filling a colored glass with water or by placing a colored filter in front of a glass of water and let the sun shine through the water with color energy. Make sure the glass is not leaded and of a clean color hue.
Syntonics

Remember the old saying "looking at life through rose colored glasses"?the use of color through the eyes. Our eye color stimulates our pituitary gland, which in turn releases hormones connected to the correlating organ of the same frequency. Therapeutic eye glasses that are manufactured with various colored filters can be simply worn whenever you need a boost of a certain color or chakra energy. Make sure the color eyeglasses are 100% UVA & UVB coated if wearing outdoors and again the exact color tint of the lens is very, very important. Note: Unless the color glass manufacturer or distributor is aware of color therapy, chances are their colored lenses are not made for healing purposes.

Decor

Use colors consciously in your home or work environment to give you more positive and productive energy. Paint a room or add different colored pillows, artwork, carpets, etc.

Clothing

What we wear will influence our mood, mind and energy level. Light penetrates through our clothing amplifying the color energy we are wearing. The more vibrant the clothing the better the energy transfer.

Art & Color

Art and color can be used as an outlet to either express or stimulate. Surround yourself with the colors, which are suitable for what you need to accomplish in that area. Use calming colors in your bedroom and mentally stimulating colors in your workspace.
