The past year has been full of negative energy for many of us - our lives are no longer predictable and the world has been hurting in so many ways. That’s why creating our Chakra Bracelets back in December 2020 was a no-brainer.
Chakra, or cakra in Sanskrit, means “wheel” and refers to different energy points in your body. Think of chakras as spinning disks of energy that should stay open and aligned, since they correspond to nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our mental and physical well-being.
Within this past year, many of us may have had our wheels blocked or operating irregularly. If your seven wheels don’t turn properly, this creates an imbalance in your mind, body, and spirit; accordingly, your health will suffer.
Our 7 Gemstone Chakra Bracelet will help you stay aligned, peaceful, imaginative, and open. These bracelets are a small way for us to get back on track and keep succeeding - as we deserve to.
What Does a Chakra Bracelet Do?
The seven gemstones in our Chakra Bracelet each correspond to a specific area along your spine, all the way from your sacrum to the crown of your head. According to yogic tradition, all ailments are linked to these seven points along your spine. If any of these chakras are blocked, energy cannot flow freely, inhibiting your ability to be peaceful and balanced. Chakras can be blocked by negative thoughts, diet, lack of exercise, and - above all - stress.
Ancients believed that if you’re undergoing such a period of negative energy, exposure to the chakras will drain you of that energy. The chakra gemstones will store that negativity and, in return, emanate positive energy.
Accordingly, chakra stones have been synonymous with healing. Our Chakra Bracelet is a great tool to help channel your focus into self-care and self-betterment. Even ancient civilizations utilized crystals and gemstones to imbue their mental, spiritual, and physical self with positive, balancing energy. And if you’ve never used gemstones or crystals for healing, don’t worry - it’s never too late to start.
What are the 7 Gemstones in our Chakra Bracelet?
The color of each gemstone reflects a vibration radiating throughout the chakras. The particular energies of each of these gemstones can subtly and gradually change your health and, therefore, your life.
The Crown Chakra, represented by the purple Amethyst beads, is located at the top of your head. This chakra is considered the Chakra of Enlightenment.
Out of all chakras, the Crown Chakra is the hardest to balance. Ancient stories dictate that if you align your Crown Chakra, you will transcend into a higher power and will no longer be subject to human ailments and death.
The Third Eye Chakra, represented by the blue Lapis Lazuli beads, is located on your forehead. When the Third Eye Chakra is open and aligned, it’s believed that one will follow their intuition and be able to see obstacles in a new, refreshing way.
If your Third Eye Chakra isn’t turning properly, you may be developing frequent headaches and allergies.
The Throat Chakra, represented by the light Blue Howlite beads, is located - you guessed it - on your throat! If aligned, the throat chakra allows you to speak with confidence and listen with compassion. Know that you are being true to yourself when communicating with an open throat chakra.
The Throat Chakra will often become unbalanced if you feel ignored or invalidated. An imbalance in this chakra can stir war and hatred toward the people around you. Physical symptoms of an imbalance include throat pain, toothaches, and dry mouths.
The Heart Chakra, represented by the Green Agate beads, is located at the center of your chest. It represents our ability to love and connect with others, and bridges the gap between our upper and lower chakras.
The Heart Chakra is often the most unbalanced in all of us. You might be making more unhealthy choices in your relationships, or you might be keeping to yourself and not trying to seek any personal, meaningful relationships. Balancing your Heart Chakra is essential in loving others and yourself.
The Solar Chakra, represented by the Amber Opalite beads, is located in the upper abdomen. This is the chakra of personal power, and is related to our self-esteem & confidence.
This chakra is in charge of the “gut feeling” you get when you’re facing something new - like meeting someone you’ve never met before. Accordingly, if you’re angry and feel no empathy for anyone, your Solar Chakra may be spinning too quickly. On the other hand, if you feel weak and insecure, your Solar Chakra may be spinning too slowly or blocked.
The Sacral Chakra, represented by the Tiger's Eye beads, is located just below the belly button. This chakra is connected to our feelings of self-worth and our ability to be creative.
The Sacral Chakra is considered the most important chakra of all since it gives you a sense of identity. Issues with your Sacral Chakra can be caused by an imbalance of pleasure - either you’re over-indulging in pleasuring activities or not indulging enough.
The Root Chakra, represented by the Red Jasper beads, is located at the base of the spine. When in alignment, you will feel grounded and secure both physically & emotionally.
If your Root Chakra isn’t turning properly, you may be feeling very anxious and jittery, which can lead to digestive issues and lower back pain. You may also be daydreaming and zoning out of conversations often.
How To Wear Our Gemstone Chakra Bracelets
Once you’ve received your beautiful 7 Gemstone Chakra Bracelet, it’s important to note that wearing it on your left arm versus your right arm can affect your body differently.
The left side of your body is considered to be your “feminine” side. This side receives energy from outside your body and helps you make positive internal changes. Essentially, wearing your Chakra Bracelet on your left arm will heal and shift your internal self so that you can become the person you want to be.
On the other hand (see what we did there?), the right side of your body is considered to be your “masculine” side. This side revolves more around how you take action in the world. If you wear your Chakra Bracelet on your right arm, you’ll be more productive and you’ll be able to control the energy you exert into the outside environment.
Switching your Chakra Bracelet from wrist to wrist is completely acceptable depending on what you’re looking for during a certain hour, day, week, etc.
FAQ’s About Our Gemstone Chakra Bracelets
Can I expose my Chakra Bracelet to water?
Depends on the environment. Ideally, keep your Chakra Bracelet away from water, but taking the occasional shower with your Chakra Bracelet is okay. However, taking it into water full of chemicals (i.e. a swimming pool) will damage the gemstones.
Can I sleep with my Chakra Bracelet on?
The purple amethyst which connects to your Crown Chakra may disturb and distort your sleeping patterns, so we recommend only to wear your Chakra Bracelet while you are awake!
How do I clean my Chakra Bracelet?
Again, exposing the gemstones in the Chakra Bracelet to chemicals will damage the gemstones, so make sure to never wash your Chakra Bracelet with soap or detergent. Simply wipe your bracelet with a cloth that’s been lightly soaked in warm water.
