Our bodies have seven energy centres running along our spine from the top of our head to the base of our back. The Root chakra begins at the bottom of our spine, the Sacral chakra, Solar plexus, Heart chakra, Throat Chakra, Third eye chakra and the Crown chakra -top of our heads.
Chakras assist with our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being.
If one of the chakras is blocked or shifts out of balance, the bodies energy system cannot circulate freely and evenly throughout the body. When this happens, it can lead to illnesses, both physical and emotional.
Understanding the different chakras will help you recognise when one of your chakras is unbalanced and the methods you can take to re-balance and maintain optimal chakra health.
You can use this knowledge to understand more about the part that each chakra plays in your life. Finally, start using colour therapy to stimulate or change the energy of your chakras with colourful Gemstones.
Wearing your Crystal Jewellery in the colour or colours of the chakras will improve your wellbeing. Meditating with the suitable chakra coloured stones or being creative with how you focus your energy on that colour can assist you.
You can be positive that colour is simply an energy vibration.
The chakra colours vibrate at a distinct colour guide from the base – Red- Root, Orange- Sacral, Yellow- Solar Plexus, Green- Heart, Blue, Indigo- Third Eye and Violet or White- Crown. By assisting your chakras with a colour that vibrates with the same colours in your Jewellery, even if it’s just one colour! for your wellbeing.
So what do chakra colours and the rainbow have in common?
They describe the entire visible colour spectrum. Both the chakras and rainbows contain every possible colour that we can see as humans.
When you analyse the seven chakras, think of an entire spectrum of colour that starts at the base of your spine – the root chakra (Red) and travels up to the top of your head – the crown chakra (Violet or Golden).
The individual chakras are centred in specific parts of your body, but they radiate out and merge with the chakras on either side.
The colours of the chakras merge, just as they do in a rainbow.
Knowing that crystals, the colours and their meanings can unfold the magic of our seven chakras can benefit you to understand their purpose on a deeper level.
Working with crystal energy is a simple way to rebalance the Chakras energy systems crystals will stimulate your senses, healing and rebalancing your mind, body and soul, assisting your wellbeing.
Crystal healing colours can be part of your crystal jewellery pieces, using them in this way becomes a natural bio-fuel energy that transforms the whole body.
Such Imbalances can easily happen if we hold emotions and thoughts that express an unresolved relationship with the Chakra’s themes and challenges: When we judge, resist or close down to the experience.
Balancing Chakras means releasing the tension in the Chakra and allow the energy to freely flow through it again.
Chakra Balancing can either have a momentarily or permanent effect. Momentarily, many types of meditation – and even simple acts of relaxation, including music – can bring Chakras to balance, meaning, a state of peace, silence and an uninterrupted flow of life-force.
However, to permanently balance your Chakras, you will probably need to go through some degree of healing.
How to balance chakras? connecting to the feeling
The easiest way to connect to chakras is simply through physical sensations. For example, think of one event in your life, past, present, or future, which triggers certain emotions, and gradually reach a point in which you’re experiencing a sufficient degree of this emotion.
Then ask yourself: “Where exactly am I feeling this in the body?” You will quickly notice that you can trace back this emotion to one of these seven centres (usually, one of the first six).
Very often you have some kind of tension or contraction in one of your seven chakras; your energy flow is hindered because of a certain belief, thought, emotion, or feeling. This causes one or more of your chakras to be relatively “closed.” Even one tiny thought which you are completely unconscious of can influence and shape your whole experience of reality and right now.
Now that we have a clear feeling and maybe a rough theme, how can we work with what we find in the chakras in order to balance the Chakra? Chakra Balancing needs to go along with the way chakras are structured.
Chakras are funnel-like. They have two funnel-like openings both from the back and from the front (except for the first and seventh, which only have one). Though the back opening has a great significance of its own, it is less relevant for physical health.
The five frontal openings, however, are what we should consider when it comes to Chakra Balancing. In general, whenever you are going to work on chakras, what you really focus on is their frontal part. If this part is properly activated, your chakras are balanced. The reason is that the frontal part of each chakra is the way you relate to the world, including to way you react to any external incentives, sensory perception, and experience. All of these are received by the frontal part of your chakras, and that is why a great deal depends on their capacity to respond to stimuli.
Of course, the frontal part is also where things get complicated and damaged. Chakras become easily unbalanced with every contractive reaction to external triggers. Your expectations and fears, resistances and avoidances, tensions and intense emotions, all close down the chakras. Positive thoughts also lead to balanced Chakras.
If you are drawn to a particular crystal and its colour, your intuition is showing you the crystal that you need in your life and this crystal will support your healing in some way too. Additionally, you have been drawn to the colour of that crystal in other ways too.
