By including Gem Stones that represent all of the 7 Chakras, we are bringing all of our energy centers into balance and alignment. Rhythm Beads has decided to take it a step further with additional Gem Stones AND the newly discovered health/emotional advantages of Magnetic Therapy!
The Chakras are the seven power points in the body that circulate energy or the life force. If the Chakra are unbalanced - not properly aligned or blocked - it can affect physical and mental health. The spiritual development is also connected with the good health of the Chakra. Let's take a look at the GemStones used in the Chakra Balancing GemStone / Magnetic Rhythm Beads.
The Crown Chakra is the body's primary co-ordination center. It ensures a connection to universal sources of energy and with the world as a whole. A balanced Crown Chakra allows for expanded awareness on an emotional level. Purple symbolizes high spiritual attainment with cosmic consciousness and love for humanity. For this reason we have chosen the Amethyst Stone to represent the Crown Chakra.
The Brow Chakra is directly related to the senses of sight and hearing. It has to do with perception. This is the seat of understanding that affects how the world is seen and how one makes sense of what is being perceived. Balancing this Chakra can help remove confusion or indecision and increase the ability to see clearly and make important distinctions. Indigo is the symbol of spiritual attainment, self-mastery and wisdom. It aids in the opening of the third eye (inner and outer vision) and opens the doors to the subconscious, so that negative elements can be eliminated and higher elements can be attained. For this reason Lapis is representing the Brow Chakra.
The Throat Chakra allows communication of thoughts and feelings. It is directly connected to the ability of expressions. Both teaching and learning are affected by the balance of the Throat Chakra. Blue is the symbol of inspiration and devotion. It produces calm and peace. The Throat Chakra is the focusing point of the expression of feelings via communication. Turquoise represents our Throat Chakra.
The Heart Chakra acts as the balance point for all the Chakras. It governs relationships and interactions with others. A balanced Heart Chakra is expressed in acceptance of self and others, personal values and ethics, following one's unique direction in life. Bringing balance to the Heart Chakra will also balance the vibrations of the nervous system. Green symbolizes harmony, creativity and health. Although green is the primary color used with the Heart Chakra, it can also be effective to use pink stones if more softness, affection and love seem to be needed in working with the Heart Chakra. We have chosen to include both Amethyst & Rose Quartz for our Heart Chakra.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the fire element because fire provides warmth and comfort, but also can cause fear and terror. This Chakra spans a wide emotional area. The color associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra is Yellow. Yellow is the symbol of the mind, intellect, high intelligence and wisdom. It is a positive magnetic vibration that acts as an equalizer for irritable conditions of the nervous system. The Solar Plexus is the organizing brain of the nervous system and as such, is an important power center that should be kept in a perfect equilibrium. Citrine is our Solar Plexus Chakra GemStone.
The color associated with the Sacral Hara Chakra is Orange. Orange symbolizes energy. It is a combination of red (for personality) and yellow (for wisdom). Orange integrates these to help us overcome anger and develop self control. For healing, the Carnelian Stone is essential for health and vitality. Orange Carnelian brings warm and positive energy to the Chakras.
The Root Chakra brings connection to the physical world, solidity and support - especially to the physical body. It is the foundation of energy. The Base or Root Chakra manifests strongly in the motivation to ensure personal survival. Spiritually, the base chakra has to do with protection of individual integrity. It is an energy center that provides a solid ground from which to establish equilibrium in order to ascend to higher awareness. Red symbolizes life, vitality, strength and the physical nature. In nature, red represents heat, fire and anger. Rose-red is the color of universal harmony. For healing, Red offers a healing vibration for emaciation, depression or lethargy. Red Jasper and Red Coral represent our Root Chakra.
We have also added some Agate Gems to the Chakra Balancing GemStone / Magnetic Rhythm Beads. This is THE stone everyone should have for protection. Agates attract strength. Agate is a protection from bad dreams. It also protects from stress and energy drains. The agate can't change emotions, but helps to change our level of acceptance of the emotion. This is why the Agate is considered so powerful as it gives us the strength to carry on and meet the challenges of the day.
Therapeutic Magnetic Hematite Beads reduce stress, naturally relieve pain and arthritis, improves circulation, and help you feel more at peace.
You will find 4 bells on the Chakra Balancing GemStone / Magnetic Rhythm Beads ~ 2 placed along each side of the neck, where they will bring the therapeutic melody of the music along with each movement. At the center chest hangs a very special Pendant that brings some elegance to the scene. This Pendant is of the Starburst design. Native American starburst symbolism deals with cosmic union – and the strength derived from such connection. You may find an added strength to the connection you have between horse and rider. You may also find much personal inspiration in this Pendant.
You should always give your horse a chance to become acquainted with Rhythm Beads just like you would with any other new piece of tack. It is recommended that you connect the Rhythm Beads to your horse's mane with the attached clip to keep the beads from slipping down if your horse should lower his head for a drink or snack. This will help prevent an accident and the possibility that your Rhythm Beads will get stepped on and broken.
It is not recommended to leave Rhythm Beads, or any other piece of tack, on an unattended horse. Please keep yours and horse's safety in mind first.
