What is a Chakra
The term “Chakra” is an ancient Sanskrit word which means “wheel” or “circle”. Chakras are often called “wheels of light”. This wheel of life refers to vortices of energy which are said to enter and leave at specific points in the body. The ‘chakra points’ relate to specific organs, endocrine glands and body parts. When your chakras are balanced and free flowing you experience good health. It is said when our chakras are blocked and impacted by emotional or physical trauma we experience illness and disease. There are many different locations of chakras in the body including chakras in our hands and feet. We focus on the main chakras in the spine which start at the base of the body and work their way up to the top of our head.
Rebalance your Chakras
Chakras are energy points that run along the central meridian of the body in alignment with the spine. Energy is said to flow from the base (red) chakra up to the crown (violet) chakra and flow back down again to the base. A good flow of energy up and down the spine is required to keep us healthy in mind and body. Many healing systems use chakras including many forms of yoga. The chakras are seen as energy points in the body and many therapists work on these points to clear issues their client may be dealing with. Specific issues are often related to specific chakras which helps the therapist to get an overall picture of the health of their client. If you are suffering of ill health or have experienced some emotional or physical trauma then it is said certain chakras in your body may be blocked and are in need of rebalancing.
Chakras and Crystals
Different colours carry different frequencies of light and thus different light energy, or colour, is often used as an aid to re-balancing the body. Each chakra is said to resonate with a different colour which relate to the colours of the rainbow. Crystals have long been used as an aid to rebalancing the body’s energy system. Zephorium aromatherapy products uses specific crystals which relate to each chakra in thier bottles. They homoeopathically potentise the crystal, so that no physical crystal remains, just the energetic memory of each crystal which is inside each bottle.

The Base Chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our lives. Located at the base of the spine, this chakra is the foundation of our entire chakra system. By strengthening our base, our other chakras can begin to flow. It is important to always work on being grounded and strong physically and emotionally. This is the bedrock of the stability of all the other chakras that stack up on top of it.

Heart Chakra (Divine Feminine)
Zephorium has two Heart Chakras in the range as we understand the importance of our heart energy plus the necessity to balance the male and female aspects of this chakra. The Pink is the divine feminine, healing and balancing any past hurts or lost loves. Blocks to this chakra can be the inability to heal from past wounds and life experiences. The healing of this chakra involves opening the heart centres to trust that love is all around us and flowing towards us at all times no matter what we are seeing with our physical eyes in the world.

Heart Chakra (Masculine)
The Green aspect of the Heart Chakra is the masculine and the ability to both give and receive love. Most therapists are great givers and unconditionally give til they drop! But receiving love is equally important and the ability to balance the two leads to a full and happy life.

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the Throat Chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world.

The Brow Chakra, also called the third eye, is the centre of perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located in the pineal gland which is directly behind this chakra. When the brow chakra is in balance we see clearly and understand what we see with wisdom, we are able to interpret visual cues and our perception is high. Our thoughts and internal communications with ourselves are healthy and vibrant. Located in the centre of the forehead.

Located at the top of the head; it is the point where spirit introduces energy for distribution throughout the body. The gift of this chakra in balance is experiencing unity and the selfless realisation that everything is connected at a fundamental level. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature. When this is unbalanced we feel isolated, disconnected and afraid.

How Zephorium uses Chakras
Each bottle is a specific colour which is a frequency of light. Each chakra ‘spins’ at a specific colour which resonates at the same frequency as our bottles. The affirmations are related to the chakras and the specific trauma and healing of each chakra. The infused crystals have specific colours and properties which further enhance the oils.
Zephoriums positive affirmations are on the back of each bottle to help shift old ingrained beliefs about our lives or world that are not helping us to feel good. As we begin to question our thinking and challenge our old thought patterns, we start to re-programme another ‘story’ into our daily life. It takes some effort initially to change a belief from, for example, “I’m not good enough” into “I am a strong and powerful creator,” (base chakra) but with effort and practice it soon becomes a new belief.
Affirmations are the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment, they are positive statements that help change our conscious level of thinking. When you choose to use affirmations, you are making a conscious decision to change your life and move forward on the path of positive change.
Zephorium believes that our thoughts create our reality, and it is important to ‘watch those thoughts’ and change negative thoughts into positive beliefs.
Positive affirmations should be repeated to ones-self in thought or out loud as often as possible.
Change your thoughts... Change your life.
