The 7 Chakras
The word Chakra is the Sanskrit word for Wheel. The Chakras are the central energy centers within a person’s body. 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 preventing energy to flow as it should. Clearing energy blockages and re-balancing our Chakras can be done utilizing their corresponding colors, healing crystals, sounds, Yoga poses, meditation and breath work. With these techniques 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. The bracelet pictured uses the following healing crystals to represent each Chakra:
Root Chakra: Red Coral (enhanced)
Solar Plexus: Honey Calcite
Heart: Green Fluorite
Third Eye: Lapis Lazuli
