The Chakras

“There are seven power centers in your body, called chakras.

The state of each chakra reflects the health of a particular area of your body.

It also reflects your psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.”

~ Caroline Myss


So… breaking this concept down really simply.

Imagine that inside your physical body, you have 7 x energetic areas that are like spinning wheels of energy.

All of the major chakras (or energy centers) are situated in a vertical line from the base of the spine to the the top of the head, making a core line for the flow of vital energy.

When there is a blockage in energy or if it is not flowing optimally; you will experience different levels of ‘dis-ease’ in your life – whether that be physical, emotional or spiritual.

We believe that it is important to understand what each chakra represents, what physical body parts and emotions each Chakra is linked to, the function and how to know if your Chakra is blocked or congested. With awareness and easy tips, you can work on ensuring your energy can flow freely.



This may all sound a little crazy if you are new to the world of Chakras, we know. But when you begin to observe your body with more presence and attention, you will begin to physically feel where you are currently blocked. But until this happens, guess what?

When you trust your intuition and just look at the chakra symbols / colours or our jewellery, you will be drawn to the chakra that needs your attention in this moment. Open your mind and give it a shot. View the Chakras as our teachers and they can gently lead us to deeper realisations.

And remember, exploring spirituality and Chakras is enjoyable. Take yourself lightly, remove the pressure. You do not need to behave in a certain way or have studied a Chakra course to connect with (and understand) your Chakras.

We can promise you, the more you relax, the more you will enjoy this exploration into this magical world of energy.




Let’s connect with our intuition and see where we wander.

Close your eyes, clear your mind.

Take three deep breaths and relax. Gently open your eyes.
