What are Chakras?
Chakras are spinning vortices of energy. They form the basis of the ancient Indian healing system which works on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self. Chakra comes from the Sanskrit, meaning wheel or disk. Each chakra point governs certain areas of the body, you can also imagine each chakra to be a flower, they also come in seven different colours and resonate at different frequencies. There are many chakras in the body, but most healers look at the seven major ones. Here are the seven chakras below with their simple break downs.

Hathor is the root chakra deity.

use cedar perfume or cedar wood (though not through pregnancy) avocado, apricot, cinnamon, minmosa or mint. anoint - the centre of each foot or at the pulse points at the side of the ankles. making sure that you dilute the oils well in the ratio of three drops of essential oil to 30 ml of carrier oil.( Do not anoint with cinnamon essential oil even after it has been well diluted, as it can burn the skin.) new psychic work, clairsistience enables you to pick up psychic impressions from the past. natural protective instincts.

Summery of Art.
The Base Chakra is our connection to the earth. This is where we connect to our survival instinct, here we can feel emotionally stable and physically fit and healthy , balance is the key part to this chakra and if we have that, we will be a grounded person.
This chakra has four petals, around a square containing a down-ward-pointing triangle. In this image I used garnet crystal as this is associated with this chakra. Garnet also helps to purify and balance energy, its also a good protective stone and was used as a protective talisman. Other crystals used for the base chakra are Agate, Bloodstone, Tiger’s eye Ruby, Hematite, Onyx, Smokey quartz and Rose quartz. In this illustration I used a photo I took of the sun shinning through the branches of a Egyptian cedar wood tree. Cedar wood incense/oil can be used for meditating on the root chakra.

The solar Plexus chakra is connected in-between your navel and the base of your sternum. This is your lustrous gem.

This chakra is connected to the warm glowing sun, giving you vitality and energy and the confidence to live life to the full. I like to call it out energy centre.
This chakra has ten petals and a down-ward-triangle with a T symbol which represents the fire element. In this picture I have embedded citrine crystal as this is also excellent for the power of the sun. It is energising, and highly creative, citrine raises self esteem and self confidence.

In the centre of the chakra `i have used sun stone, this stone can help you restore yourself and it heightens intuition. It is also linked with good luck and good fortune.

The Heart Chakra is our central chakra, it is here that the physical body meets with spirit. This is depicted by the lotus flower with 12 petals, inside there are two triangles one pointing downwards and the other pointing upwards, this represents the union of the physical body and the spiritual body (air). The heart is very complex it not only gives us our beat for live, but here we feel all kinds of emotions, Love, compassion, truth, as well as confusion and frustration. Once we have ascended the first three chakras on relating to survival, the Root, self knowledge the sacral and personal power the solar plexus, we are now ready for the embodiment of enlightenment. Embodiment is about embracing all your qualities of the lower chakras to make them part of our lives. In this image I have used watermelon tourmaline and emerald. Watermelon tourmaline for its use with the heart chakra, the heart chakra colours are green and pink. All tourmalines are linked to the inner flute and are good for cleansing all chakras, it helps you to feel calm taking all the energy to the higher ones for understanding, while helping you except the need for transformation.

The throat chakra is connected to either/spirit, is is all about communication, pure spirit to our inner selves and our spirit guides, angels and the Gift of Divinity, that lies within. This chakra allows you to deeply connect to your soul and allows you to listen to your soul speaks. It is here that we can use our voice to make sound, this chakra is also connected to creativity through speech, music & art. Its about expression of the self. When your mind is clear so much comes easily with little effort as we are not struggling against life itself. This lotus flower image contains 16 petals and a downwards pointing triangle and a circle representing the moon in this picture I have a ghosted image of a woman which connects the Goddess and the power of spirit. In this image I have embedded Lapis Lazuli crystal for it properties in connecting with spirit guardians. It helps to balance the throat, and teaches power of the spoken word and harmonises conflict, its also good for self expression, truth, its a good thought amplifier of the higher mind creating objectivity and creativity. Other crystals associated with this fifth chakras are turquoise, aquamarine, agate, celestite, sodalite and sapphire.

Summery of Art.
This chakra has the ability to see other than the eyes, Its the centre of divine wisdom,intuition (sixth sense)
The ancients believed this chakra to be the seat of the soul, it acts like a gateway to knowledge and
expanded consciousness. Its here where the ida and pingal the spiralling life's currants meet. Everything
has a positive and a negative, or the yin and the yang, or day verses night, it is here when we meet at that resting place between the two we find a stillness and bliss which is known as shushumna. It is here movement stops and the energy flows towards the sacred light of the divine, as we rest here in this inner space it is a time of great healing where we can clear our negative thoughts from past present and future. We can renew and arise from limitations and ascend towards liberation. This lotus flower has 2 petal which represent eyes of the meeting serpent of energy, which is around a circle containing a downward triangle. This chakra is situated slightly above and in-between the eyes. In the circle I have depicted a cosmic like energy, and I have embedded Amethyst and Azurite. Azurite guides psychic and intuitive development. It cleanses and stimulates the third eye, its great for meditation and channelling. I use Amethyst as its a powerful healing stone and adds protection while meditating on the third eye, plus its great for spiritual vibration.

Star magic - mystical experiences, direct channelling.

Summery of Art.
The Crown chakra lies at the top of the head, it is home to our pure spirit, this is where we become one with the divine. As we go through our darkest times, and tragic things happens, and when we been disillusioned by material gains, we search for something to answer our calls, this is when we start to look within for the answers we seek. When we find that inner peace we become whole again. ‘To simply be’ A feeling of oneness. The element for this chakra is thought and cosmic energy, its meaning is thousand fold hence the lotus flower petals are a thousand. The crystals I have embedded into this picture is clear quartz and amethyst. Clear quartz as its the most powerful healer and energy amplifier on the planet. Quartz is a master healer and can be used for any condition. And amethyst for its
powerful protection when working high spiritual vibration the its love energy.
