If you’ve been inside of Plowshare recently, you likely noticed a few things with a rainbow-like design of symbols, items such as mini singing bowl boxes, banners, prayer bead bracelets and necklaces. These colors and symbols represent the chakra energy within.
What is Chakra Energy?
Chakras are interconnected energy centers aligned within the spine and central nervous system. Each chakra corresponds to a physical, emotional and spiritual expression. Focusing on each energy center through the practice of meditation helps to align and balance our chakra system. Ancient Vedic tradition teaches that balanced chakras create an enhanced feeling of overall well-being.

How To Meditate With Chakra Energy Prayer Beads:
Create a quiet space for yourself and take a deep breath. Regard the symbol of the chakra and open your awareness to that chakra center in your body. Focus on the meaning of the chakra. To bring a deeper meditation, intone the chakra mantra and imagine the radiant light associated with this energy center filling your being. Rest and relax as you are bathed in this transformative internal light! Ahhh...you are there! Repeat as needed.
Chakra prayer beads and banners make the perfect personal gift for yourself or a friend, especially during pivotal life changes, times of transformation, or stress. Chakra energy can be a peaceful present of clarity and balance, which is something we all need from time to time.
