Since the beginning of starting Drops of Gratitude I’ve been getting requests to make a Chakra bracelet. And while I‘ve always thought it was a great idea, I kept putting it off. I didn’t even realize I was doing this until it came up again two months ago. I was in my office and a good friend of mine texted me to ask if we had one available on the website. I said that it was in the works and wrote ‘Chakra’ on a sticky note and stuck it to my computer. That same day I had someone request one on my Instagram feed.
I realize now why I didn’t jump on the idea right away.
Because gemstone energy sometimes scares the $%&! outta me.
I have always been a very big believer that everything carries energy and we all live at a certain frequency but the more I started to learn about gemstones, the more I felt like it was such a sacred art and I was such a newbie. I didn’t feel confident that I could execute the best Chakra stone bracelet because it seemed to be a realm I wasn’t familiar with. I learned a little bit about Chakras in school (I studied Holistic Nutrition) and I knew the basics but when it came to creating such a powerful gift I was a little intimidated. ANYWAYS, a few weeks ago I attended an AMAZING seminar that lasted 3 whole days. It is called Transformation Weekend and it’s ran by Erin Skye Kelly (AKA super human) … look her up
Some of my limiting beliefs popped up throughout the weekend and I decided to own them - all of them. If I felt like I wasn’t good at something I was going to do it over and over and over again. Something changed in me that weekend and I am so grateful for it. I came home and wrote a list of all the things that I didn’t think I was ready to do and ‘Chakra Bracelet’ was one of them.
I studied everything I could about the Chakra’s and I learned some amazing things! I found the perfect seven gemstones to represent each energy cluster and I nestled them between a stone that represents protection and strength. Just like that, the Chakra bracelet was born.
I have plenty more items on the list of “things I am not ready to do” and it still intimidates me but I am super proud that I’ve started crossing things off that list. And I am so happy with the Chakra bracelet. It turned out exactly as it should have.
Designed to balance the seven chakras and promote healing and vitality, our handcrafted Chakra bracelet brings harmony and balance to the body and spirit.
1st Chakra - Root - GARNET - The root chakra is related to vitality, self-confidence, courage, security, and physical well-being. When your root chakra is open and balanced you will feel secure, and connected to your foundation.
2nd Chakra - Sacral - RED CARNELIAN - Located in the lower abdomen, the sacral chakra is related to water, granting movement, change and flexibility to both body and mind. It acts as the resting place for personal habits and is closely tied to happiness, resourcefulness, pleasure, and confidence.
3rd Chakra - Solar Plexus - CITRINE - This energy center is related to self-confidence, strength, empowerment, wisdom, and clarity. Situated below the ribs, the solar plexus chakra supports our internal functions and when open, can balance our bodies so that everything can run smoothly and effortlessly.
4th Chakra - Heart - AVENTURINE - The heart chakra relates to love and self-love, serving as the link between lower, physical chakras and the higher, etheric chakras. An open heart chakra allows you to give and receive love, feel and demonstrate compassion for others, and experience empathy.
5th Chakra - Throat - BLUE LACE AGATE - The throat chakra governs speech and creative expression. This energy center is also known as the space of purification, as this is where energy manifests in the physical world. When balanced, the throat chakra allows you to be creative and expressive.
6th Chakra - Third Eye - SODALITE -The energy center for intuition, understanding and mysticism, when out of balance, visual and mental ‘fogs’ may develop. Through the third eye, we understand non-verbal cues and make clear decisions.
7th Chakra - Crown - AMETHYST - The seventh chakra is related to beauty, creativity and inspiration, and it is the foundation of the spiritual body. When the crown energy center is balanced, you will have a greater ability to trust life and connect deeply with your spirituality.
