Chakra is Sanskrit for the word wheel or disc. Chakras are energy vortices that spin as glowing wheels of light within every sentient being. Humans have seven (primary) chakras that correspond with areas of the body, starting at the base of the spine, all the way up to the top of the head. Chakras can be overactive or deficient, blocked or out of balance. Selecting a gemstone Mala according to the corresponding chakra may assist one’s vibration at that relevant frequency.
The 6th chakra or 3rd Eye Chakra is Ajna, meaning “to perceive”. It is located at the center of the forehead and is one’s wisdom light, enabling clear vision. When this chakra is balanced, one’s understanding becomes expansive and deep, the individual sees the world and themselves distinctly and their intuitive sense is reliable. The color for the 6th Chakra is Indigo and symbolically means “I see”, representing vision, intuition, mysticism and free mindedness. Gemstones recommended for the 3rd Eye Chakra are sodalite, amethyst etc. amethyst etc.
