The Meaning of the Seven Chakras

Originating in the ancient traditions of Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism, chakras (the Sanskrit word for wheel or circle) represent focal areas in the body that support emotional, physical and spiritual energy centers. According to the Indian tradition, there are seven major chakra centers, located along the spine from the base to the head. As each of us is an integral part of the universe with which we should strive to peacefully coexist, our chakra energy centers also correlate with the energies inherent in light, elements, sound and colors. Therefore, using rocks, crystals or gemstones, smells, colors and sounds specific to each chakra can enhance our natural energies, leading us to better health and inner peace. The seven major chakras and some of their enhancers are:

Root: Color:  Red; Crystal: Ruby; Aromatherapy: Cedarwood

Sacral: Color: Orange; Crystal: Amber; Aromatherapy: Sage

Solar Plexus: Color: Yellow; Crystal: Citrine; Aromatherapy: Basil  

Heart: Color: Green; Crystal: Green Jade; Aromatherapy: Rose
