Chakras are a collection of energy which some describe as spheres while others liken them to discs. Each chakra is linked to an aspect of our lives: family and home life, physical and emotional health, courage, love, communication, and spirituality.
When balanced, all of these 7 spheres are the same size and their colors are vivid. They vary in color, in a succession like a rainbow. Chakras rotate in a clockwise direction at different speeds – the lower chakras turn slower while the upper chakras spin faster.
Chakras are directly affected by our emotions such as obsession or uncertainty. The size of these spheres can become enlarged with obsessing over issues like finances or shrink when we are experiencing low self-esteem. The color can become darkened when we obsess or fade when we are uncertain about the aspects of life associated with a specific chakra. Their rotation is similarly affected with chakras spinning faster when we obsess and slower when we are uncertain.
There are many chakras located at different areas throughout the body, but most people concentrate on the 7 main chakras:
The Root chakra is located at the base of the spine and part of the lower chakras. This ruby red sphere is related to the essential elements of life such as home, career, and finances.
The Sacral chakra is located below the navel and part of the lower chakras. This brilliant orange sphere is related to physical and emotional wellbeing.
The Solar chakra is located above the navel and part of the lower chakras. This bright yellow sphere is related to strength, confidence, and control.
The Heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest and part of the upper chakras. This emerald green sphere is related to love; love for our family, friends, and most importantly for ourselves.
The Throat chakra is located at the base of the throat and part of the upper chakras. This soft baby blue sphere is related to communication; communication with humans and spirits. It is an important chakra for those who are psychically inclined.
The Third-eye chakra is located at the brow, between the eyes and part of the upper chakras. This indigo sphere is related to visual messages regarding our past, present, and future. It is an important chakra for those who are psychically inclined.
The Crown chakra is located at the top of the head and part of the upper chakras. This royal purple sphere is related to enlightenment and receiving, storing, and interpreting information that we receive from humans and spirits. It is an important chakra for those who are psychically inclined.
When chakras become unbalanced or discolored by negative energy we may feel depressed, angry, or unsure. A Chakra Cleansing can help us discover our true potential and restore positive energy.
There are several energy stones and crystals that can be used to assist with a chakra cleansing. These stones help rejuvenate and replace negative energy with positive. The stones can be placed in the left hand or directly on the body where each chakra is located. You can find most of the energy stones listed below on the Energy Stones and Crystals page of this website.
