Throughout our website, we refer to chakra jewelry as being healing, so I'd like to take a moment and explain what we mean. Our Chakra jewelry has the potential to be much more than a pretty bauble or an accessory to an outfit. Each piece of ChakraJewel jewelry is created with an intention to help you focus on a specific set of emotions that may be influencing your life. Often, we are not conscious of how powerful our emotions are in determining our choices and actions. Hurt, anger, sadness or fear, for example, are emotions that all of us experience at one time or another, but unless we understand how to work through them, those feelings stay locked up inside us and we carry them with us for the rest of lives. A chakra therapist will commonly use gemstones to for their vibrational qualities in bringing you to new levels of emotional awareness. Our chakra necklaces, earrings, pendants and bracelets are specially designed to help you focus on healing yourself.
Healing jewelry to balance emotions
Chakras deal with our emotional anatomy. They are based on the concept that our emotional state has real influence on our physical state. Let me give you a personal example: Once, a number of years ago, I got a disturbing report from my doctor regarding a test result. Instantly, I felt my heart race and my breath quicken. I made an appointment to see the doctor, which was set for two weeks down the road. Shortly thereafter, I began to show symptoms of an upset stomach. It got worse and worse, until I literally could not keep any food down. I knew my disease was progressing by the day. By the time I finally got in to see my doctor, I confided in him that I knew I was near death. He looked surprised and told me the test results had been read inaccurately and I was fine. I left his office, walked across the street and enjoyed a big lunch with no more problems. I was instantly cured. The stomach issues I was experiencing were caused by my fear of a disease I did not have. My emotions had actually made me physically ill. After I learned about the chakra system many years later, I found out that fear is one of the emotions we carry in the solar plexis known as the core chakra. It is located in the stomach, just below the ribcage and can affect the digestive processes, as well as how we breathe.
Physical ailments and healing jewelry
Last year, I received a phone call from a woman who recited a litany of physical ailments that sounded quite serious and wanted to know which stones would "cure" her. I recommended she see her doctor. When physical distress is the result of physical problems, it requires medical treatment by a doctor. Period. That being said, no matter what is happening in your life, being aware of your emotional state and knowing where those feelings are being stored within your body, can give you greater ability to cope with problems and enjoy a happier, healthier life.
When you wear our chakra jewelry, it is an affirmation to yourself that you are getting in touch with certain feelings you wish to explore, emotional hurts you wish to heal or personality traits you wish you bring out. It is a willingness to work toward balance in your life. In the bigger picture, we come to the realization that balance in the world begins within ourselves.
