In this article we will introduce magical chakra candles but before we will tell you how to use them and why they might be very helpful for your mental and physical health, we have to at first focus to an explanation what are chakras, where are they come from and what each chakra means.
Nowadays in our western world, many people buy chakra candles for their nice colored design and use them just like other candles in order to create a pleasant atmosphere in their homes. There is nothing wrong with that but once you discover a positive impact on your body and spirit you will become a true lover of chakra candles.
First of all, we are going to briefly introduce what is chakra. Chakra is the invisible center of energy placed in or around the human body. There are seven basic chakras positioned throughout your body and each chakra has own position and is represented by different color. The word Chakra comes from old Sanskrit language and the literal meaning is a wheel. The reason for that is because the life force in other word known as prana is spinning and rotating in your body in these chakras. More importantly, each chakra has different vibrational frequency and in particular, own very specific function and health impact to a particular part of your body or mental function. The first chakra starting at the base of your spine and the last one on the top of your had but don’t worry we will cover all of them later in this article.
When all your chakras are in balance then all chakras provide the right amount of life force to every part of your body, mind, and spirit. However, if any chakra is too open and the energy is too spinning or the chakra is too close and there is an insufficient amount of life force circulating then you might except suffering in some part of your body or organ for instance.
On a picture below you can see all seven chakras (be aware that seventh chakra is placed above the head and in this picture is shown as a bright light. You might be surprised that later when we will present the seventh chakra we are going to use purple color. Both variants are correct and in the spiritual world you can find both of them)
