In Hindu belief there are 7 chakras representing the 7 centres of spiritual power in the human body
In Hindu belief there are 7 chakras representing the 7 centres of spiritual power in the human body – Crown, Heart, Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Third Eye and Throat. It therefore comes as no surprises that pendants and other types of jewellery were created that mirror those chakras and are worn on the body to actively enforce the bodily powers they stand for. One way to mirror the chakras is by wearing a little chakra charm that reflects the chakra the wearer wants to draw from and attention to. The charm can be worn either on its own or as part of a jewellery design.
But what are the powers the 7 chakras stand for?
Crown (Sahasrara) - It’s located on the top of the head and symbolises understanding, enlightenment and spirituality.
Third Eye (Ajna) - It’s located on the forehead between the eyes. And symbolises insight, intuition and creativity.
Throat (Vishuddha) - It’s, as the name says, located on the throat and symbolises communication and truth in words.
Heart (Anahata) - It’s located in the center of the chest near the heart and symbolises love, compassion, harmony, acceptance and hope.
Solar Plexus (Manipura) - It’s located in the center of the navel and symbolises identity, willpower, courage, strength and self-esteem.
Sacral (Svadhisthana) - It’s located in the lower abdomen (sacral vertebrae) and symbolises sensuality, sexuality, joy and happiness.
Root (Muladhara) - This is the lowest chakra and located as the base of the spine. It symbolises survival, safety, energy and health.
For each of these Chakras it is believed that there are ways of developing the chakra further and healing it if need be so to improve a person’s well-being or life. For example, the fourth Chakra, the heart, symbolises the ability to love and this when developed and exercised can lead to inner peace. However it is believed that if there is a blockage in the heart Chakra that it is due to a lack of compassion and unprincipled behaviour. These are two attitudes that go against the fourth Chakra and therefore barricade the ability to stay at peace and find harmony with ones self.
