LEARN and CREATE – the chakras and the healing power of gemstones

What are chakras?

Emerged from the Indian culture, the chakra energy system, has seeped into our esoteric beliefs. What is called chakra is a focal point where psychic forces interact with the body and vice versa. The concept is very much present in each belief system and associated with the mind, spirit and soul idea.

Although there is a huge amount of chakra points, we normally only refer to the six intersections located along the spine and the one on top of the head. Each individual chakra is linked to a mantra or prayer and a deity. It is also associated with an organ, a color, a shape and an element in nature.

In the Western culture, we want each chakra to be fully energized and balanced; in the Hindu culture on the other hand, the Yogi attempts to raise his energy flow from chakra to chakra to reach the top of the head.

The seven chakras and their location:

the root chakra, situated in the tail bone, is linked to your survival, meaning health, food and shelter and in modern times this concept may be transposed in terms of money and motivation

  6. the third eye or brow chakra can be found between the two eyes and is connected with your thoughts, such as decision making, imagination, but also intuition

The functions ?

Inevitably, you will discover that a single gemstone can have several functions.

For instance, lapis lazuli :

  • its primary function = throat chakra
  • its secondary function = third eye chakra.

The same is true for most gemstones.

How to choose your stones?

First of all, the gemstone which makes you feel good is presumably the one that brings one of you chakra's in balance.

Secondly, whether you choose to create a pendant or a bracelet, you are supposed to wear it directly on the skin.

Enjoy a soulful day!
