Chakras, Colour & Crystals

 

 

Chakra means 'wheel'.  In eastern religion, The 7 chakras are known as the subtle energy centres of the body.  These centres are sometimes visible to sensitives and psychics and one can learn to sense and work with their energies.

Each chakra spins like a wheel and these centres work together for the health and well being of mind and body.  Each chakra has a different colour associated with it and these colours vary or intermingle according to the individual. When a person is healthy, the colours are clear and bright. If a chakra is out of balance, its colours may be dull or it may contain the colours of a lower chakra. Then one may manifest the more negative traits of that chakra and or health problems related to that area. See chakra chart

When a chakra is working at its highest level, we express the more elevated traits of that centre. Sometimes chakras are depleted and it can help to eat foods containing the colours associated with that chakra, and to wear clothes in those colours and particularly gemstones in the appropriate colours which have the healing properties required.

Often, when we are particularly drawn to a colour, it is because we feel a need to focus on a particular area/ aspect of life and the energies of a particular chakra in order for us to express ourselves more clearly and focus on what we really want out of life. When we dislike a colour, it may be that we feel uncomfortable with our energy/experience relating to the related chakra area. We can introduce the complementary colour instead and gradually bring harmony, then introduce that particular colour when ready.  To introduce a colour gently, you can start small pick a bunch of flowers and have them in your room, buy an item in that colour and focus on it, gradually start noticing that colour more and allowing it into your life. Sometimes it can be very helpful to start wearing a new colour and it can represent a new phase in your life.

Gemstones which contain the appropriate colours and healing energies are worn to balance the energies of the chakras. Each gem also has its own specific properties (as well as looking beautiful). Click below to view the chakra chart  for details of the colours, foods and gemstones as well as the qualities related to each chakra.  On this website you can choose from a beautiful selection of gemstone jewellery in the colours you require.

 

The Chakra information below will help you find the crystals for you:

 

CROWN CHAKRA

The seventh chakra is referred to as the Crown and it is located just behind the top of the skull. This is the centre of spirituality and enlightenment. It allows for the  flow of spiritual wisdom and brings the gift of cosmic consciousness. This is  the centre of connectedness with the divine and it is the place where life animates the physical body. When this chakra is unbalanced there may be a constant feeling of frustration, a lack of joy, and destructive feelings. Health conditions may include migraine headaches and depression. When this chakra is balanced,  there is wisdom and an ability to open up to the divine and access to the unconscious and subconscious. The colours for the crown are white and purple and the gemstones are Quartz Crystal, White Opal, and Amethyst. See Purple gemstones.

THIRD EYE CHAKRA

The sixth chakra is referred to as the Third Eye and is located above the physical eyes on the middle of the forehead. This is the centre for psychic ability, higher intuition and for spirit. It is related to the purification of negative tendencies and the elimination of selfishness. Through the power of the sixth chakra, we can receive guidance, channel, and tune into our higher selves. When this chakra is unbalanced we may feel unmotivated, afraid of success, or will go the opposite way and be ego-driven. Physical symptoms may include headaches, blurred vision, and general eye and head problems. When this chakra is balanced and open we lose our fear of death, are unattached to material things, and may have psychic experiences and connection with past lives. Sixth chakra body parts include the eyes, face, brain, lymphatic and endocrine systems. The main colours are purple and Indigo blue and the gemstones are Amethyst, Sodalite Lapis Lazuli and other deep blue stones. See Indigo gemstones.

THROAT CHAKRA

The fifth or throat chakra is located in the centre of the collarbone at the lower neck area. It is our centre of communication and expression of creativity through thought, speech, and writing. Here we have the possibility for change, transformation and healing. The throat is where we store anger and here is also where we express it and let go of it. When this chakra is out of balance, we may tend not to say how we really feel, we may hold back, feel timid, be quiet, feeble weak, or unable to express our thoughts.

Physical illnesses or ailments include, under or over active thyroid, skin irritations, ear infections, deafness, sore throat, voice problems,  inflammations, and neck pain. When this chakra is balanced we may feel balanced, centred. We may be musically or artistically inspired, and are skilled at expressing ourselves through voice and speech.

HEART CHAKRA

The fourth or  heart chakra is located behind the breast bone in front and on the spine between the shoulder blades in back. This is the centre for love, compassion and spirituality and it controls one's ability to love themselves and others and to give and to receive love. This is  the chakra connecting mind, body and spirit. When there is a problem here one may have a hard, hurt, or broken heart or there may be deep emotional hurts from the past that can result in a difficulty being open, trusting, soft and loving to others. A person may feel self pity, paranoid, indecisive and afraid of letting go or getting hurt. They can feel unworthy of love and find it hard to maintain long term relationships. Alternatively they may shut themselves away rather than relating freely with other humans whom they may see as disappointing or find hard to trust. When  hurts are released, it may be painful at first, but will  free the heart for healing and new growth.  This chakra is expressed by loving, caring, showing appreciation, trusting and by nurturing all growing things. A release in this area can manifest as crying and breathing deeply and can be seen in the face as happiness and in the eyes as love and openness. This energy also manifests in the ability to listen to others without judgement. Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia and difficult in breathing. When balanced here one can feel compassion empathy and a desire to nurture others and see the good in people.

When this chakra is out of balance you may feel sorry for yourself, guilty, paranoid, indecisive, afraid of letting go, afraid of getting hurt, or unworthy of love.

Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia, and difficult in breathing. Body parts for the fourth chakra include heart, lungs, circulatory system, shoulders, and upper back . The main colours used are pink and green and the gemstones are Rose Quartz, Kunzite, Green Jade, Aventurine and Watermelon Tourmaline etc. See green gemstones and pink gemstones.

SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA

This chakra is the centre of personal power, the place of ego, passion, impulses, anger and strength. When the Third Chakra is out of balance you may lack confidence, be confused, worry about what others think and feel depressed or lacking control over your life.

Physical problems can include digestive problems, liver problems, diabetes, nervous exhaustion, and food allergies.
