Chakra Healing Stones

The word “Chakra" means wheel of light and is derived from Sanskrit. The Chakras are the seven very important power points in the human body that circulate energy or the life force also known as prana. They are perpendicularly aligned in the core of the body close to the spinal cord. If the Chakra is unbalanced and disturbed and is not properly aligned or if they are blocked it can influence physical and mental health badly. The spiritual development is also connected with the good health of the Chakra. If all chakras are balanced then it calms and relaxes the body.

The feeling, which is an electromagnetic field that surrounds the body, can specify the body health, mental health and spiritual health of a human being. Clear and bright colors designate good health. Muddy and dark colors specify an unhealthy or depressing state of mind and body. There are seven chakras present in our body.

The first chakra is located above the head and this chakra connects the individual and universal. The Crown chakra is related with the pineal gland, brain and central nervous system. The crown chakra is the body's most important co-ordination center. It guarantees a correlation to universal sources of energy and with the world in total. A balanced crown chakra allows for extended responsiveness on an emotional level.

Located between the eyes is the second chakra. This chakra indicates intelligence and psychic power. Third eye chakra is related with the pituitary gland, eyes, nose, ears and skeletal system.

Located at the throat is the third chakra and this chakra is related with creativity, self-expression and the search for truth. The Throat chakra is associated with thyroid gland, upper lungs and respiratory system. The throat chakra enables us to communicate our belief and outlook. It is directly connected to the ability to express inner creativity. Both teaching and learning are influenced by the balance of the throat chakra.

Located near the center of the breastbone or sternum is the fourth chakra. This chakra represents higher consciousness and love. The Heart chakra is associated with the heart, thymus gland, lower lung and circulatory system. The heart chakra acts as the equilibrium summit for all the chakras. It rules our relationships and how we interact with other people. A balanced heart chakra is articulated in acceptance of self and others, personal values and ethics, following one's unique direction in life.

Located midway between the rib cage and the navel is the fifth chakra and this chakra is the sense of identity. The Solar plexus chakra is connected with the pancreas, liver, gall bladder, spleen, digestive system and nervous system. The solar plexus chakra is linked with the fire element because fire provides warmth and comfort, but also can cause fear and terror. This chakra spans a wide emotional area.

Located at the genitals is the sixth chakra and this chakra supervises sexuality and reproduction. Sacral hara chakra is associated with reproductive organs, stomach and colon.

Located at the base of the spine and groin area, this is the animal or base nature, the seventh chakra. It is also taste and smell. The Root chakra is associated with adrenals, kidneys, muscles and arterial blood. The Root Chakra associates us to the physical world, firmness and support especially to the physical body. It is the basis of energy.

There are different stones for all these seven chakras and depending on which chakra is weak for us we can accordingly use that stone for genuine and effective results.
