A chakra bracelet is a type of bracelet which is specifically designed to support your chakras.

Usually a chakra bracelet will contain certain precious stones or crystals which have specific properties that are beneficial for each of the chakras. These stones often reflect the color of the chakras so you end up with a rainbow effect. 

Wearing a chakra bracelet can help you to direct the healing flow of energy to your chakras and keep your body in harmony all day long. 

Components of a Chakra Bracelet

Chakra jewelry comes in all different shapes and sizes, you can find chakra pendant necklaces, chakra earrings and even chakra bracelets with only a simple chakra symbol pendant. 

But for this article we’re looking specifically at chakra bead bracelets. These are usually made up of:

Gemstones and Crystals

Chakra bracelets are made up of gemstones and crystals that correspond with the seven primary chakras in your body.

Each gemstone or crystal in the chakra beads bracelet possesses its own healing properties and vibrations that work together to balance and align your energy centers.

Often you will find black lava rock beads either side of the colored chakra stones.

Some common gemstones used in chakra bracelets include:

  1. Red Jasper, Garnet, or Black Tourmaline for the Root Chakra which is associated with the color red. 
  2. Carnelian or Orange Calcite for the Sacral Chakra which is associated with the color orange
  3. Tiger’s Eye or Citrine for the Solar Plexus Chakra which is associated with the color yellow.
  4. Rose Quartz or Green Aventurine for the Heart Chakra which is associated with the color green
  5. Turquoise or Blue Lace Agate for the Throat Chakra which is associated with the color blue
  6. Lapis Lazuli, Sapphire or Sodalite for the Third Eye Chakra which is associated with the color indigo
  7. Amethyst or Lepidolite for the Crown Chakra which is associated with the colors purple or white

Colors and Healing Properties

The colors of the gemstones in a chakra bracelet also hold significance, as they represent the colors of each of the chakras. The colors range from red crystals for the Root Chakra, to violet or white crystals for the Crown Chakra.

According to color therapy, colors emit certain vibrational frequencies which affect our emotional and physical wellbeing. Using crystals which share the same colors as the chakras can help to energize and rebalance our energetic body. 

As you wear the bracelet, you can focus on the different stones and colors and their corresponding chakras to help you connect more deeply with your own energy and spirituality.

Benefits of Wearing a Chakra Bracelet

Chakra bracelets have several healing benefits for our emotional, spiritual and physical body.

Balancing Energy

Wearing a chakra bracelet can help you balance and align your energy flow. Certain crystals like amethyst are also said to ward off negative energy, so wearing a chakra bracelet can mean you enjoy positive energy all day. 

Emotional and Spiritual Healing

The chakra crystals and stones in the chakra bracelet can absorb your negative emotions, purifying your emotional state. Balancing our chakras also has the added advantage of helping us feel more at peace and emotionally calm. It can help us to feel more present, and in touch with our inner wisdom.

Chakra stone bracelets also foster spiritual growth. Being mindful of your chakras and their significance help create a deeper connection with yourself and the universe.

Wearing a chakra bracelet can serve as a reminder to focus on your spiritual journey, enhancing your mindfulness practices.

Physical Health

While chakra bracelets primarily target energy flow and emotional well-being, they can also influence your physical health indirectly.

Balanced energy contributes to better mental clarity, reduced stress levels, and increased vitality—all of which play a significant role in maintaining your overall physical health.

Caring for Your Chakra Bracelet

To maintain the healing power of your chakra bracelet, it’s essential that you look after it properly. Follow these simple steps to keep your bracelet functioning as it should.

Cleansing and Charging

The first step is to cleanse and charge your chakra bracelet regularly. Cleansing removes any negative energy absorbed by the chakra stones, while charging enhances their healing properties.

You can cleanse your bracelet by exposing it to smoke from burning sage or incense, or by placing it under running water for a few minutes. To charge the stones, leave them in direct sunlight or moonlight for a few hours, allowing them to absorb the natural energy.

Activation and Intention

Before using your chakra bracelet, you should activate it to align its vibrations with your personal energy. To do this, hold the bracelet in your hands and take some time to focus on your intentions.

You can also say a personal affirmation, such as “I am balanced and in tune with my energy centers.” Repeating this affirmation during meditation can help reinforce the connection between your energy and the bracelet’s healing properties.

How to Wear a Chakra Bracelet

Which hand to wear your chakra bracelet on is a topic of hot debate! One view is that wearing the chakra bracelet on your left hand will help attract positive energy from the outside world towards your chakra centers, while wearing it on your right hand will encourage the release of negative energy from within.

Don’t worry about this too much, whichever way you wear your chakra bracelet, you will still benefit from the healing vibrations of the crystals. 

You can wear a chakra bracelet whenever you like but it can be particularly beneficial to wear it during healing practices like chakra meditation, reiki chakra, or even a gentle yoga practice as it can deepen your spiritual connection.

Start Balancing Your Chakras Today

By wearing a chakra healing bracelet, you are aligning yourself with the greater energy of the universe and embracing the idea of interconnectedness between yourself and all living beings.

It serves as a reminder to be mindful of your energy levels and to maintain harmony within. Fostering this awareness can lead to a more peaceful and grounded daily life.
