They are the energy centres in your body. Most traditions are based on seven chakras. Sometimes there is also talk of eight or nine. The chakras together form a system. This means that they have an effect on each other and that they work together. Every chakra in us has specific characteristics and functions. The chakras are different kinds of consciousness. They are actually the different areas of your life. For example, the first chakra is linked to survival and the second to creativity. The third is your self-esteem and the fourth tells you something about love. Chakra five is your communication, six gives insight and the seventh connects you with the higher. Chakras can be felt in your body and can be seen in your behaviour. In order to influence or get to know chakras, special colours, symbols and gems are often used. The most common colors and gems are: * 1st chakra: red – red jasper * 2nd chakra: orange – peach aventurin, carnelian, orange calcite * 3rd chakra: yellow – gold quartz, citrine, yellow agate, yellow jasper * 4th chakra: green – rose quartz or green aventurin * 5th chakra: They are made by placing rough stones in a special drum machine, together with polishing, grinding and water… The drum machine rotates the stones so that they roll over each other and sand the sharp and rough edges. This can take up to 4 to 6 weeks. Finally, the stones are polished to smooth, rounded and shiny stones of different sizes. The small drum stones are most commonly used as ornamental stones. The larger ones are used as cuddly toys.
