Reiki is an ancient Japanese practice of balancing and restoring energy in humans and animals. It can also be used to “charge” or “attune” objects with healing, protective, positive energy. The object can then be used to increase the effectiveness of a healing session, placed in a specific area that needs healing or balance or symbolically worn or placed on the body.
The word Chakra means “spinning wheel of energy” in the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. Although there are many Chakras in the body, there are seven main Chakras that run up the spine, through the crown of the head and above. They are believed to be the sources of energy and balance in our body. When expressed at their full capacity, each Chakra center holds ethereal meaning as well as the ability to balance, stimulate and enhance our corresponding organs and overall health.
Each Chakra also has corresponding colors and gemstones which can be used for healing and balancing purposes during purposeful meditations or passive activities such as wearing jewelry or adorned clothing garments with Chakra related and or Reiki charged/attuned gemstones, as explained above.
The reason why crystals and gemstones are powerful healing tools are because of what science calls the “piezoelectric effect”. You can see this effect in modern quartz watches. Crystals and gemstones respond to the electricity that courses through our body. It is believed that if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance and stimulate these energies. Attuning or charging these gems with Reiki energy is believed to enhance even further.
In relation to the design inspiration of Chakra Intimates, we have taken the basis of these belief systems by applying small, Reiki-energy attuned, gemstone beads that correlate with the 1st four Chakra centers that reside in the torso area, to create beautiful and spiritually symbolic garments that undoubtedly have Heart and Soul !
