Chakras are swirling wheels of energy that are concentrated in the midline of the body, in the spinal column. These energy wheels are considered meeting points between the mind and body and are therefore an important aspect of being in balance. There are seven chakras, each representing a basic human need. When these energy centers are open, energy can move freely. This allows for basic human needs to be met with a minimum amount of effort. If the chakra centers are blocked energy cannot flow, so it becomes stationary or sluggish and intentions surrounding basic human needs cannot materialize.
Sound vibrations can be used to heal and transform. Crystal bowls are an effective way to balance and clear energy; to make energy flow. They are typically manufactured to the vibrations of specific chakras. These are the vibrational sounds of each chakra:
|1st Chakra, base of the spine||LAAM|
|2nd Chakra, sacral area||VAAM|
|3rd Chakra, navel area||RAAM|
|4th Chakra, heart area||YAAM|
|5th Chakra, throat area||HAAM|
|6th Chakra, between eyebrows||KSHAAM|
|7th Chakra, crown (top) of head||OM|
