Some of the ancient religions, including Hinduism, say that the body has seven main chakras on different places going up your spine. These are centers in the body that control the flow of life force or energy. Each one controls a different part of the body and spirit. If a chakra is blocked, energy can't flow though it like it should and this will affect your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. There is a color for each chakra and to unblock a chakra, you can use gemstones in its corresponding color. |
You store your energy in the root or base chakra at the bottom of your spine. This chakra governs your basic animal nature and keeps you grounded and stable. Its colors are mainly red, like blood, but also black. To unblock it, you should use stones that are either red, like garnets and rubies, or black, like obsidian or smoky quartz.
The lower part of your belly, just above your pubic area, is where the sacral chakra is. This chakra controls your emotions and creativity, your vitality and your sexuality. A blockage here can cause especially sexual problems and feelings like jealousy and obsession. It is an orange or blue-green chakra, so stones in these colors, including coral, carnelian, amber, citrine and turquoise in a blue-green color will help unblock it.
Your intellect, ambition and assertiveness lie in your solar plexus chakra. This chakra is also responsible for emotional health. If you say that you feel things in your gut, you're right because the solar plexus is above your belly-button. The color associated with this chakra is yellow, which you'll find in citrine, light amber, yellow topaz, and yellow jasper.
The center part of your chest is home to your heart chakra. Being able to give and receive compassion and love is all about what your heart chakra is like. This chakra also helps you to understand how you fit into the bigger scheme of things. Stones in green, like emeralds, malachite and jade, or stones in pink, like rose quartz, will help balance and unblock your heart chakra.
At the base of your throat lies your throat chakra, the fifth of the main chakras. This chakra mainly governs your ability to communicate and express yourself. To unblock it, blue stones like turquoise and aquamarine help.
Your intuition center is based in your third-eye chakra, between the eyebrows where many Indian women wear their bind is. This chakra also has to do with your spirituality. It's an indigo chakra that benefits from lapis lazuli, sapphires and other dark blue stones.
Your highest chakra is not situated on your physical body, but just above your crown, as if you're wearing a halo. This crown chakra is about your sacred self, which is why spiritual leaders like priests and lamas often wear its colors, violet and white. Stones in these colors include amethysts and quartz.
The healing power of gemstones is not only a concept in the oriental religions. Ancient peoples everywhere believed in magic stones and would carry certain stones for protection. To tap into their age-old wisdom and ensure your well-being, ask the advice of a chakra healer.
