The 7 Major Chakras

Meditation As energetic beings, we are constantly being influenced by the energies that surround us. Factors that can alter our vibrational frequencies include:

  • What we think, believe and feel.
  • The energies of others.
  • Energies within our environment (including the crystals that we use!)
  • Situations we may find ourselves in and (more importantly) how we choose to respond to them (physically, psychologically and emotionally).

When we experience changes in our energetic bodies, our chakras may become imbalanced. Chakras may grow overactive or under-active and these energetic imbalances can lead to the development of dis-ease and disorder in our lives.

So what are chakras?

The chakras (pronounced shok-rahs) are spinning energy vortices which are found within our energetic bodies (including our auric fields). We each have hundreds of different energy centres, but for this series of blog posts we will be focusing on the 7 major chakras, which run from the base of the spine, up to the crown of the head.

Faeryflair Chakras
The 7 Major Chakras are:
  • The Crown Chakra
  • The Third Eye Chakra
  • The Throat Chakra
  • The Heart Chakra
  • The Solar Plexus Chakra
  • The Sacral Chakra
  • The Root Chakra

Each of the chakras corresponds with a certain vibrational frequency and can be matched to the frequencies of particular colours, sounds and crystals.  Each chakra also relates to specific glands, organs and areas of the body, as well as different aspects of the mind and spirit.

So how can we balance our chakras?

Meditation and crystal healing are both powerful tools for clearing and balancing your Chakras. By placing a particular type of crystal on it’s corresponding chakra, you can bring that chakra into resonance, returning it to a start of harmony.

If you’re unsure which of your chakras are imbalanced then you can either scan your body with your receptive hand and feel for energetic changes, use a tool such as a pendulum and notice how it moves over each chakra, or you can do a chakra quiz, such as the one I’ve linked to below.

In the following blog posts we will be discussing the issues and areas of the body that each chakra relates to, as well as the crystals that can help balance each one!

Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to check back soon,

We’re smack-bang in the middle of cold season, and it seems the whole world is sniffling! So I figured, what better time than now, to talk about crystal healing for colds!

Crystal of the Month: Fluorite

Faeryflair Necklace

This month’s crystal of the month is fabulous Fluorite!!

Fluorite was referred to in ancient times as ‘The home of Rainbows’ and it’s no surprise, as this delightful crystal can be found in a beautiful array of colours, which are often banded, resembling a rainbow!

Fluorite is found in forms of green, blue, violet, purple, yellow, brown, and clear. There’s even pink variety, found in the Alps (but this is rare!).

Each colour has specific properties, but all embrace the same general qualities.

All forms of Fluorite have a protective energy, which works to deflect negativity, protect against psychic attack, and shield against the electromagnetic pollution, emitted by computers.

The stabilising properties of Fluorite make it a brilliant crystal to use in times of need, and it is one of my favourite ‘go-to’ crystals to relieve the effects of emotional distress.

Fluorite works wonderfully to bring you back to reality, and encourages clear, logical thinking and improved intuition. These qualities make it an excellent companion, to guide you through difficult situations.

Different colours of Fluorite can be used, depending on the type of situation:

Yellow Fluorite: Yellow Fluorite stimulates creativity and intellect. It works to improve mental abilities, particularly memory and is useful for those wishing to work more effectively as part of a team.

Green Fluorite: Green Fluorite has a very calming effect and is excellent for grounding excess energy, cleansing the aura and dissipating emotional trauma.

Blue Fluorite: Blue Fluorite has great balancing energies, which calm the mind and stimulate physical and mental coordination.

Violet Fluorite: Violet Fluorite opens the 3rd eye chakra and improves intuition, logical thinking and spiritual communication.

Purple Fluorite: Purple Fluorite has the same properties as violet Fluorite, but is better suited for shielding against electromagnetic radiation.

Clear Fluorite: Clear Fluorite, as with other clear crystals, can be used to open the crown chakra and improve spiritual connections.

Fluorite is great for those needing orderly balance and organisation in their lives and is a wonderful stone for support and protection. It is a great crystal to have in any collection!

I hope your week is blessed with abundance,

Crystal blessings,

Chrissy
