What are Chakras?
Chakras are like little wheels of energy within the body that energy flows through - in Sanskrit "chakra" translates to the word "wheel". There are 7 main chakras in our bodies and each chakra is associated to a particular colour, in a specific location.
What are the 7 Main Chakras?
The 7 main chakras are the base chakra which is located at the base of your spine, the sacral chakra which is in the lower abdomen, the solar plexus chakra is located in the upper abdomen, the heart chakra is located in the centre of chest - above the heart, the throat chakra is located exactly where you'd expect it to be - in the throat! The third eye chakra is between your eyes on your forehead and the crown chakra is on top of your head.
Chakras and Colours
Colours play an important role in keeping your chakras balanced - this includes the colour of your crystals. The base chakra relates to red, brown, grey or black colours. The sacral chakra relates to orange colours and the solar plexus' colour is yellow. The heart chakra can be either pink or green. Choose sky blue or light blue colours for the throat chakra, and indigo or purple colours for the third eye chakra. Finally, select violet, white or gold colours for the crown chakra.
