What is your Chakra Nature?
The Vedas are the oldest written tradition in India, (1,500 – 500 B.C.) recorded from oral tradition by upper caste Brahmins.
Descended from the Aryan stock which entered India from the north.
The original meaning of the word chakra as “wheel” refers to the chariot wheels of the rulers, called cakravartins.
The word was also a metaphor for the sun, which “traverses the world like the triumphant chariot of a cakravartin and denotes the eternal wheel of time called the kalacakra which represents celestial order and balance.
Chakras are our 7 points trough out our body in which our energy flows.
When these points are blocked in can stop the even flow through out them, causing illness, Diss-Ease (disease) and other problems.
An imbalance in the chakras can also cause all sorts of emotional, psychic and physical problems.
Balancing our Chakras can help us harmonise our energies and mental state.

Over the coming days we will place an in depth blog covering all the Chakras.

PEACE SIGN ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Have you ever wondered where the peace symbol came from?
Throughout history the peace symbol was not always used in the spirit of love and service to humanity.
For this reason, the Teach Peace Foundation logo is not a traditional peace symbol but people around the world holding hands.
A popular explanation of the peace symbol is that Gerald Herbert Holtom (1914 – 1985) created this symbol on February 21, 1958.1
Holtom was a dedicated peacemaker and graduate of the Royal College of Arts.
During World War II he worked on a farm in England as a conscientious objector.
The BBC quoted Holtom, “I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad.
Around this symbol of Peace we created our Peace & Love collection.
With a selection of gorgeous necklaces and stacking bracelets in multicolours to bring Peace, Love and Happiness.
For the perfect arm candy stack up a selection of bright colours for a great Boho Chic look!

SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONE, SAPPHIRE
September’s birthstone, Sapphire is associated with faith, honesty, wisdom and serenity.
It is believed to increase mental clarity and enhance spirituality in a person.
Sapphires are generally deep blue in colour but they are also found in other colors like yellow and pink.
Sapphire promotes pure emotions – purity of mind, serenity, joy and peace. Opens the mind to beauty and love.
Clears the mind of unwanted thoughts.
The ancient Greeks believed the sapphire to symbolize wisdom and purity, and reserved them for kings and priests.
They believed the world itself was set upon a giant sapphire, whose color could be seen in the late summer sky.
Other ancient cultures believed sapphires could protect the wearer from envious enemies and poisoning, and even that a poisonous snake could be killed by being placed near a sapphire.
Ancient doctors even ground the birthstone of September into a powder and used it to treat rheumatism, depression and eye problems. The medieval female religious cleric Hildegard of Bingen wrote about the incredible healing powers of sapphires in her well-regarded book of medicine, in which she claimed that sapphires had special powers from God and could help improve the intellect.
The September birthstone Sapphire derives its name from the Greek word “sapphirus” meaning blue, a word which itself comes from the Hebrew “sappir” which means to shine. Sapphires have a long and precious history in the ancient Jewish tradition.
Ancient Hebrew texts claim that Noah’s Ark was illuminated with a giant sapphire used as a window, and the same stone was said to be placed in the Jewish High Priest’s breastplate, the original source of the notion of birthstones.
Finally, the Ten Commandments themselves were said to have been engraved on giant sapphire tablets. The term sapphire originally applied to lapis lazuli, an extraordinarily rare and prized stone of the ancient world.
This blue gem of lazurite came only from a mine in northern Afghanistan, and was given mystical and magical properties in ancient Egypt and medieval Europe.
This gem was so rare that in the Middle Ages, European gemologists began referring to blue specimens of corundum, a recently discovered gem at the time, with the ancient name of sapphire.
MULTI COLOURED CRYSTAL STONES
There are many gemstones and minerals in which a mix of colors occurs naturally. You can determine their actions from the color combinations that they display. In general, stones that display a full spectrum of color, or that contain ralnbow fractures, will be able to reflect a wide range of states and qualities and can therefore be used for a variety of reasons. Stones with a combination of two colors have specific functions determined by those colors.
AMETRINE is a quartz which shares the colors and qualities of amethyst and citrine, being part violet and part golden. It balances the mind, augmenting the imagination and the rational mind.
OPAL is perhaps the best known of the multicolored stones. With a high water content which refracts light in a multitude of ways, opal works with the emotional balance. Depending on the play of colour, the opal will naturally harmonize with different chakras.
AZURITE_MALHTTE is a mix of these two related minerals. It allows the deepest imbalances to surface and then be removed. It will also help you to express your needs in a clear, direct way.
LABRADORITE appears a dull waxy grey until it catches the light when beautiful iridescent sheets of peacock blues, yellows and oranges appear. Labradorite will deflect any unwanted energies from the aura.
HAWK’S EYE is a blue variety of tiger’s eye with gold, green and orange between deep blue strands. It is ideal for the throat, brow and crown chakras, where its rapid energy enhances the flow of information into the body.
