You may have seen or know someone who wears one, and these bracelets are accessories which are specially designed to balance the seven chakras of the body, which are believed by some people to be energy centres for many centuries in India and other Eastern cultures.
Such bracelets normally are made up of seven stones or charms in various colour stones, each one of them being a representation of one of the chakras.
They are the crown, brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and base
Energy and Focus on Health
And whilst some have claimed that the advantages of wearing chakra bracelets comes straight from the energy of the stones used themselves, others will say that the bracelets do the job of boosting awareness and allowing for an increased focus on making sure that these seven energy vortexes are kept in healthy balance.
Whatever the case may be, these bracelets are commonly put to good use in natural/alternative medicine to promote peoples healing and boosting their vitality.
And then there are other cases where a chakra bracelet will also be worn solely for reasons of aesthetic display.
Every bead type will have a different kind of use
For instance, the larger beads used in a chakra bracelet can also be used as worry beads, or to serve as a reminder for the wearer to indeed concentrate on healing.
This type of focus and distraction from anguish has been said to be ideal for those recovering from alcoholism and smokers.
It has been said that the negative energy departs the wearer and gets trapped inside the bracelet. After which, positive energy emanates from every stone and then helps to rebalance the wearer’s chakras.
There are many beliefs of the powers of different stones and crystals, and the designer of a bracelet will provide an explanation for whatever is used in every one.
Beads used in a chakra bracelet can be of many materials, but it is the colours which are very important. Every chakra is represented by a specific colour
Violet and green are more generally seen than white and pink, but these secondary colours do sometimes make an appearance.
The above seven colours also happen to be the colours of the rainbow
And Various Others
If a chakra bracelet is made from beads, any type of coloured material may be put to use to make the beads. These materials can vary from precious stones all the way to plastic beads.
Some people also like to wear silver chakra bracelets which carry drawn or symbolically impressed symbols of each of the chakra vortexes.
