Very Basic Infomation on Chakras
The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel. The seven main Chakras follow the colours of the rainbow in the main; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet/white. Black is also sometimes added as the grounding.
Each colour covers an area of the body:
Black – Ground/legs/feet
Red – Base, Instinct, Security
Orange – Stomach, Reproductive organs
Yellow – Solar Plexus, Emotion
Green – Heart, Emotional and Physical/immune system
Blue – Throat, Communication
Indigo –Brow/Third Eye, Spiritual awareness
Violet/White - Mind/Consciousness/Awareness
Each chakra is stimulated by these colours and if the chakras are not balanced, or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be affected and you may feel restless, fatigued or depressed. Restoring the balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well being.
Individual Chakras can also be balanced by individulal gemstones and crystals. Please see our tumblestone page for more information.
