Chakras! What are they?

Hi and welcome to my newsletter. Today we will talk a little about chakras, their role in the body and what crystals and stones can help keep them in tip-top condition.


What are chakras?

You are more than your physical body. The physical body is the house of universal energy (chi) that flows through it. The energy flows through points in the body called chakras (a Sanskrit word that means “wheel of light”). Chakras cannot be seen with the naked eye as they are not physical organs. The chakras are like little wheels that rotate or spin as the energy flows through them, nourishing your body. When energy enters the chakra, it enters as yin energy and when it flows through it exits as yang energy. This allows the body to remain balanced. 

There are seven major chakras in the body. These are energy points (loosely located along the spine – see diagram). 

These can become blocked or clogged when we experience trauma, upset, bullying, etc. They can also become unbalanced when we over or under use them, for example, obsessing about things. Once the energy is prevented from flowing freely, it can cause a blockage, and this means the energy no longer flows freely. If this happens and is not addressed, then ultimately it may lead to a physical manifestation of illness in the body. When your energy flow is good then your chakras will all receive.

The energy that flows through the body has an effect on your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. 


Quick Description of chakras and their roles

Here is a quick overview of each of their chakras and what their roles in our live are. We will start at the base of the spine.

This is just a really quick look at chakras, but even from this you can see that each chakra is responsible for different aspects of you. Each chakra has a different vibration and along with that it has its own color, symbol, and sound.


Crystals and chakras

Crystals each have their own vibration and when that vibration is connected with its corresponding chakra, it can be used to help remove any blockages in that chakra, thus healing it. Crystals do not need to be placed directly on a chakra to work. They can be worn on the body as a piece of jewelry or placed in a room where you spend time.

By wearing a full chakra bracelet or necklace, you can ensure your chakras all remain balanced. However, if you have issues with just one or two areas, then a piece of jewelry with the relevant crystal or gemstone will help heal it. Check out our full range now.

The benefits of AQUAMARINE

Aquamarine is commonly associated with the month of March, so if your birthday is this month, its energies will be more powerful for you.


Aquamarine is a delightful shade of blue-green and is very calming and soothing. This makes it very beneficial for people born under the sun sign of Aries, as it can help calm and balance the emotions before they become too extreme.

Above is a very brief overview of what aquamarine can do for you. It has many more physical, emotional, and spiritual properties. Very often a crystal will call to you. Your inner self knows what you need to be the best version of yourself, and very often it will let you know which crystal or combination of crystals you need via intuition. By paying attention to your intuition, you will be able to address an issue or problem before it gets out of hand. Crystals can be used in their raw state or you can wear a piece of jewelry with your chosen crystal embedded in it. We have a great range to choose from.


Crystal Journal

Keeping a crystal journal is an excellent way to track what crystals you have used for what purpose and its results. It will also give you confidence in your healing. You may not notice much at first, but as you look back over the journal you will notice patterns that will help you identify uses for the future.


Good luck in your crystal healing adventure.
