The human body is bestowed with more than 108 chakras. However, there are 7 major chakras or energy junctions that play key roles in our lives. Chakras are like energy wheels spread from the base of spine to head. They keep us active and vibrant every day. Each chakra has a designated color that can help in activating or unblocking its energy.
Human beings have a primal connection with colors. Colors have an effect on our minds and can calm or excite us. When the color comes directly from Mother Earth in the form of a gemstone, it has the potential to stimulate us, if placed at the right element of the finger and worn with faith. The 7 chakras have distinct purposes and using gemstones of the designated color can do wonders.
The first chakra is known as the base chakra or Root Chakra. It is located at the extreme end or base of our spine. It is responsible for keeping out fears at bay, provide security and stability. If you are insecure about the basic needs of life like, food, shelter, health and education, it implies your base chakra needs rectification. Red colored stones like Jasper can enhance the energy of this chakra. You can also keep a maroon colored stone in the south-west corner of your house to increase the element of security in your life and enhance stability.
After security, pleasure is the next most important element of life. Sacred Chakra, which lies 3 inches below your naval, is the chakra where pleasures reside in our life. If you are stuck with pleasures or your creativity doesn’t grow, wearing an orange stone or a kamal gatta as its cheap substitute works very well.
Once you attain security and have pleasures, you seek success. Manipur Chakra or Solar Plexus is the chakra related to success. It is placed below your ribcage and above your naval. Ruby works very well for this chakra. The deity is Lord Vishnu. If you wear ruby, do sun chanting, listen to Aditya Vidhi Strotam, it works very well to make you more successful in life because you are able to connect with the portal that helps you absorb the energy.
Love is the next important element. This is the area of Heart Chakra. It is also the chakra of your emotions. It has two parts, front heart and back heart. Front heart chakra receives energy, while back-heart chakra gives energy. The combination that works here is Radha and Krishna. Radha is the giving energy; she is the unconditional lover and Krishna is the receiving energy. Pink and green work very well in this zone. You can use Emeralds, Pink Thermaline and a combination of Burmese Ruby. Being open to receiving and giving is very important in life, you must be good at both to keep your heart well.
Your command is the next important thing. Like how Mahatma Gandhi said “Satyagraha” and millions of people followed obediently. This the Vishuddhi Chakra or Throat Chakra located in your throat. This is where Maa Saraswati resides – you say things and people believe in it. This is an area of vastness and the color is sky blue. Stones like Turquoise work very well for this chakra.
The next stage of life is when you can see beyond the ordinary and create things, like Steve Jobs, he was a visionary, with 300 gm of aluminum he created a product like Apple. Its mind blowing, how out of nothing such people can create a vision and do extraordinary things. The Third Eye Chakra placed in the middle of your temple is the chakra of vision. Dark blue color works well for this chakra. Lapis Lazuli is a beautiful stone for it. Neelam or Blue Sapphire also regulates this chakra.
Finally, living in eternal bliss is everyone’s ultimate dream. The Crown Chakra is responsible for your happiness. Purple colored Amethyst works very well here. If you keep amethyst in the west of your home and if you can wear an amethyst in your middle finger, it creates vibrations that keep you happy most of the time. Chakras and stones can be coordinated like that with the color. If you don’t know the stone, use the color and it will definitely deliver results.
Using colored gemstones to keep the chakras balanced enables us to stay fit emotionally and spiritually. It helps us live a better and happier life. However, you must remember, every stone worn every day has a side effect, unless you know the right way to use it. How to regulate that energy which is over and above us is the whole science of wearing gemstones.
