The 7 Chakras
The Chakras are the central energy centers within a person’s body. The word Chakra is the Sanskrit word for Wheel. Each Chakra spins like a wheel allowing energy to flow from the pelvic region where the Root Chakra is located through the top of the skull to the Crown Chakra. When in balance, the Chakras are open allowing energy to flow freely, but certain mental or physical conditions restrain the energy and cause a blockage in one or more of the Chakras. Clearing and balancing our Chakras can be done utilizing their corresponding colors, healing crystals, sounds, Yoga poses, meditation and breath work. We can easily and effectively bring ourselves back into a vibrant and harmonious state! The names and colors associated with the Chakras are Root: red, Sacral: orange, Solar Plexus: yellow, Heart: green/pink, Throat: blue, Third Eye: indigo, Crown: white/violet.
Root Chakra: Red Coral
Solar Plexus: Yellow Calcite
Heart: Green Aventurine
Third Eye: Lapis Lazuli
Pyrite is known as a stone of luck, abundance and good fortune because of its resemblance to the precious metal Gold. It is associated with all 7 Chakras, working to cleanse, activate and align each one. Pyrite is an excellent shield of all sources of negative energy, protecting us from absorbing the negative energy of others, but also our own negative habits, thoughts and inhibiting patterns. It enhances our willpower during challenging times and supports our wellbeing and growth. It wants us to be successful in pursuit of our dreams and will assist by keeping us on the right path. It encourages good physical health and emotional well-being. Additionally, Pyrite helps increase our vitality when we are feeling overworked. Meditating with Pyrite helps ground our higher frequencies into the physical plane.
