If you desire to invoke the sacred elements of fire and light with the power of chakras, these Chakra Pillar Candles will be the perfect addition to your spiritual practice. The chakra system, or spiritual energy system of the body, originated in India thousands of years ago. The word "chakra" is a Sanskrit word that means "wheel" and references the energy meridians in the body. Each color references a specific chakra that aids in bringing alignment and balance into the body's energy meridians.
See below for each candle’s Sanskrit name and the Chakra meaning:
Violet (Sahasrara)–Happiness: Also known as the crown chakra (top of the head). A spiritual practice that utilizes this color represents your soul’s connection to others, the work and the universe. This chakra is associated with Divine Energy and Self Realization. Through meditation and prayer we surrender to the higher power and experience whole body happiness.

Use this candle to awaken your soul’s connection to Spirit and to expand on your intuitive powers that are available to all of us in the physical realm.

Blue (Visuddha)–Positive Energy: The throat chakra is the center of communication. If you are not using your voice to stand up for yourself, create boundaries, or simply express yourself in meaningful ways, your throat energy center may be blocked.

Green (Anahata)–Healing: The heart chakra is the center of compassion and love. When you are hurt in life or love, the first impulse is to close your heart.

The energy of the solar plexus is associated with our creativity, our service, and our unique gifts.

Orange (Svadhishthana)–Love: This chakra gives us our sense of wellness and our passions. Located just below the navel, when this chakra is aligned we feel alive, joy-filled and passionate, with emotions fully balanced and grounded.
