A beautiful swirl of bells with brightly colored stone accents.
Woodstock Chakra Bells combine color and sound to underscore the ancient meaning of the major energy centers of the human body. Eastern Philosophy can be difficult for the Western scientific mind to assimilate and yet, many of the eastern claims are being proven scientifically as the time-honored truths that they are. According to the traditions, there are 7 basic chakras, which correlate to the 7 main nerve ganglia emanating from the spinal column, as revealed through modern studies of physiology. Each Chakra location has a unique meaning, orientation and healing potential. Woodstock Chakra Chimes are intended to remind us of the strength of mind over matter and, through sound, give us a small window into the balance of the physical and metaphysical.
The 7 Chakras are:
-Sahasrara: The Crown Chakra. It's related to thought and self-knowledge and is represented by pink quartz.
-Ajna: The Brow Chakra. It's related to intuition and clarity and is represented by lapis.
-Vishuddha: The Throat Chakra. It's related to sound and self-expression and is represented by turquoise.
-Anahata: The Heart Chakra. It's related to love and compassion and is represented by aventurine.
-Manipura: The Solar Plexus Chakra. It's related to growth and personal power and is represented by citrine.
-Svadhisthana: The Sacral Chakra. It's related to creativity and enthusiasm and is represented by carnelian.
-Muladhara: The Base Chakra. It's related to physical identity and self-preservation and is represented by red coral.
This chime is designed to hang from a string loop, rather than an o-ring.
