Chakras are energy centres in our body in which energy flows through in balance with each other. An unbalanced energy field may cause a blockage in the flow of energy. Different colours are related to each chakra, and therefore you can adapt stones to the chakra according to the colour of the crystal to help with each energy point.
108 This necklace has been made with space so the 108 beads can be counted. The number 108 is considered a sacred number in Hinduism, Buddhism and yogic tradition. Malas or Japa beads come in a string of 108 and are used for devotional meditation, mantra and prayer. With each bead a mantra or prayer is repeated to meet a total of 108. The Meru bead is the larger bead or tassel on the mala and is not part of the 108. This is the guiding bead and marks the beginning and end of the mala/chant/prayer/mantra.
RED JASPER (GROUNDING - Healing, Grounding, Fearless) Chakra: Root Jasper is known metaphysically as a stone of gentleness, comfort, and relaxation and is often referred to as the "nurturing stone." Jasper balances yin/yang energies. It is helpful in many areas of life and can bring healing, peace, and ease. Jasper is primarily about peace and relaxation. It enhances one's ability to relax and come to peace even in difficult situations. This helps bring in wholeness, emotional healing, kindness, and comfort. Jasper also brings peace to endings, whether it be the end of a relationship, the end of a situation, or something else. Because of this, in addition to its general energy of peace, it is a good stone for healing grief. Jasper is a wonderful stone for working with emotional disturbances and trauma. It can bring deep emotional healing in these areas and lead to a sense of tranquillity in the present in spite of past or current disturbances.
LAVA ROCK (GROUNDING - Healing, Grounding, Fearless) Chakra: Root Lava is known for its grounding qualities and is wonderful for calming the emotions. Because the rock comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stones are fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of Earth. In folk remedies, it was also given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle. Lava stones are recommended to be worn close to the skin, if not directly on the skin. This is because the barrier for absorption is not blocked by anything. It gives access for the energy to flow clearly and keep things energetically balanced.
SANDALWOOD Sandalwood is a prestigious wood which is used in many religious rituals. The aroma is said to heighten concentration and have a cooling and calming effect which makes it perfect for meditation.
AMMONITE (pendant) Ammonite fossils are often colorful and very rich in Earth energy. Ammonites are an extinct group of marine invertebrate who sadly died out with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. The shells have fossilised, and the organic matter has been replaced by quartz by a process that takes a several hundred years or more. These shells are an extremely strong Earth Energy conduit and are very grounding.
