What exactly is a chakra tree and how can you use it to enhance positive energy in your life? In this post I will go into the chakra tree meaning, describe in detail the various natural stones that can be used, as well as go through a description of how it relates to the main chakras.
CHAKRA TREE MEANING
The chakra tree is a representation of the tree of life. You will also sometimes see it called a feng shui tree or gemstone tree. But the chakra tree is special because it contains crystals that align with the colors of the main chakras in your body.
The chakra tree contains crystals representing all 7 of the main chakras.
While many different types of stones are used in these crystal trees, they will have stones in the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Some chakra trees may also contain white or pink crystals as well.
Each of the different colored stones represent each of of the seven main chakras, and they help to open up and align the flow of energy throughout your body.
The word chakra is the Sanskrit word that translates to “wheel” or “disc”. The chakras are energy centers in your body that are located along the spine, starting at the base of the spine and going up to the crown of your head (top of the head).
When the chakra points are out of balance, it can affect our physical, mental and emotional health.
