Who are they for?
If you are reading this right now, chakra bracelets are for you. why and how?
Chakra bracelets are for anyone, any age who Is interested in finding more balance in their lives mentally and physically. These chakra bracelets actually intended for the convenience of people who wanted more peace and serenity within themselves but didn’t want to carry a stone or even multiple to balance their energy.
Each and every one of us have 7 chakra energy points that are aligned perfectly with our spine beginning at whats known as the “root chakra” and work their way up to whats known as the “sacral” and the “solar plexus” fourth is the “heart chakra” and the “”throat”, “Third eye chakra” and finally the “crown chakra”. now, why is this important to you?
You see each one of these energy centers within your body has a responsibility, I’ll give you one example of an energy center and it’s purpose in your body.
The root chakra is responsible for our natural instincts like water balances, and that feeling you get when something feels wrong in a bad situation, helps you stay grounded, and provides natural energy for the body.
It’s important to understand that when your body’s root chakra is imbalanced you may experience physical and mental effects like depression, and lower leg aches and pains frequently.
Finding imbalances through your body can be beneficial for you in the future. You can check out one of my latest post on balancing chakras which will help you identify blockages through your body.
Each color stone on the bracelet has a different purpose and reason. There are 7 stones on each bracelet that represents each energy centers in the body.
- Red (root chakra)

If your interested in learning about powerful top picks when it comes to chakra stones
Using bracelets are used for more than just aesthetic purposes as you can see now. If you have your bracelet I always recommend start with cleansing, because you don’t want anyone else past energy conflicting with yours, this can cause blockages and imbalances.
You can begin by placing sea salt and water into a non-metal bowl or cup, leaving your bracelet in the water overnight letting the stones clean with a soak.
If you decide you don’t want to cleanse your bracelet this way, feel free to try these other two ways.
You can also achieve this cleansing process with a simple moon bath, or placing your bracelet over incense.

, Identifying blockages and cleansing your chakra bracelet, set intentions for each one. For example one of the 7 stones might be rose quartz which is a paired with the heart chakra. Identifying an imbalance like jealousy is also associated with the heart chakra. Now after knowing this, you can apply this rose quartz to heal your jealousy by setting its intention.
Start by placing your bracelet in your right hand and reciting I Intend on (rose quartz___) to open the heart chakra and heal all jealousy)
You can repeat this process with each one when comfortable.
