The Seven Chakra: guide

Chakra means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body.

 

Chakras are a complex and ancient energy system that was originated in Indian Ancient Sacred Texts of spiritual knowledge, Vedas from 1500 to 1000 BC. 

Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to our energy points in your body.

  • Chakra are considered as spinning disks of energy, which has to be “opened” and aligned.
  • Each chakra refers to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body.
  • They have an impact on our emotional and physical well-being.

What are the main characteristics of each Chakra?


Crown Chakra (head)

AWARENESS


    The Crown or the 7th Chakra is located at the top of the head. The Crown Chakra is our connection to the Universe.

The Crown Chakra, also called  Sahasrara, is directly aligned to seek an intimate relationship with the cosmos. It is the Chakra of Prayer.

      Bracelet Sizing & Measuring

      How to measure my wrist?

      Before getting a bracelet it’s important to know what size it should be. It's good to know what the average size is, but you can measure your own wrist easily.

      You should also consider whether or not you want a comfortable or loose fit.

      Women sizes: 16 to 20 cm

      • Most common: 17 cm
      • Average range: 17 – 18 cm

      Men sizes: 18 to 22 cm

      • Most common: 18.5 cm
      • Average range: 18-19 cm

      How to measure your wrist?

      1. Measure your wrist using a flexible measuring tape where you intend to wear the bracelet. If you don't have a measuring tape, you can use a rope and compare the measure with a ruler.
      2. Add almost 1 cm to that measurement to give it a comfortable fit, and space for the beads
      3. If you want a loose or snug fit, take/add around 1.2 cm from this figure
      4. If you have large beads, give it an extra half cm to accommodate them

      Gift: Which size should I choose if I buy a gift?

      Consult us if you have any doubt or question about the size!

      My advise: Choose the recommended medium size depending the type of person: medium small or medium, medium large.

      Post-sale service: We will provide a post-sale service to readjust the exact size directly with them once receiving the gift.

      Extension chain: When choosing a bracelet or necklace made on a chain, most of them can include an extension chain which enables to adjust easily the size.
