Ages of Chakra Bracelet in most Asian Countries

In the ancient Indo-Aryan language known as Sanskrit, chakra means wheel, that is the energy wheel of the body.  Our bodies are made of different such chakras, through which energy flows. The tricky part is keeping all these energy points open so that energy flows equally through them. In the common tongue, we call this balance.

And we all know how important balance is in our everyday life, work-life, relationships, everything. The chakra bracelet has been worn for ages, by countless generations, believing it had the power to influence the energy points in our bodies and thus balance out the energy surrounding them, their bodies, influencing their well-being.

The chakra bracelet is made of 7 different pillars of gemstones, each one of them possessing a unique healing power and energy vibration. There are seven chakras. This is also useful information on how to process below:

  1. The first chakra (Muladhara) handles the basic needs of our human body, from food, shelter, to safety. It is also known as the root chakra
  2. The second chakra (Svadhisthana) is the sexual center and the creativity kernel; this is the sacral chakra
  3. The third chakra (Manipura) influences your self-confidence; aka solar plexus chakra
  4. The fourth chakra (Anahata) is responsible for the connection between your physical and emotional spirit; it is your heart chakra
  5. The fifth chakra (Vishuddha) is basically your voice, the energy that helps you express yourself; it is also known as the throat chakra
  6. The sixth chakra (Ajna) is your third eye and fuels your intuition and insights
  7. The seventh chakra is the root of your spiritual being, and this is the crown chakra

As you probably might have guessed already, there are different gemstones for every one of these chakras, usually, they’re different in color as well, making a chakra bracelet both a fashion statement, an exquisite piece of jewelry and a spiritual protector. So, let’s get down to the process of making a chakra bracelet yourself.

What You Need to Make a Chakra Bracelet

Since it is not wise to start something without having all the right tools and pieces, let’s make a quick sum-up of the tools needed for making a chakra bracelet:

  • Scissors or chain cutters, depending on your choice of string
  • Clear elastic string or chain (for both, you need to make sure they’re not wider than the opening of the bead)
  • Some kind of robust string or wire (if you want a chain-type of the bracelet)
  • Crystal gemstone beads. How many? You guessed: 7! 1 for each chakra or, if you want, you can have all 7 correspondings to the same chakra. Your choice.
  • Optional, for a plus of richness, choose some 20-30 clear quartz beads that would go well with the chakra gemstones.

What are the chakra gemstones and how to procure them?  We’ll talk about that, too. But first, let’s walk through a step-by-step guide on how to put them all together in a lovely chakra bracelet.

How to Make a Chakra Bracelet Step by Step

We’ll walk you through all the steps of making a chakra bracelet on an elastic string, with some optional quartz beads as ornamental items. Without further ado, let’s jump right in:

Step 1

First, you need to make sure you make a chakra bracelet that fits your wrist perfectly, that’s why you should start with wrapping the elastic string around your wrist twice, knot-tying it at one end.

Step 2

Begin with the other clear quartz beads. Just string them on the elastic. Do half of them and then stop

Step 3

It’s time for the chakra beads. If you chose to go with one gemstone for each chakra, then you should know there’s an order to them. The order is simple:

  1. Root chakra
  2. Sacral chakra
  3. Solar plexus chakra
  4. Heart chakra
  5. Throat chakra
  6. Third eye chakra
  7. Crown chakra

You should start with no. 1 and then continue with the other 6 one on top of the other.

Step 4

Add the other half of the gems to the string

Step 5

Measure your wrist again so that the colored chakras will always stay in the middle of your wrist

Step 6

Now, it’s simple, just tie the two ends of the string and knot it off. Get rid of the remaining band and…time to wear it!
