CHAKRAS (our body's energy centers) have been verified by a recent Harvard Medical School study. Chakra is an Indian word that means wheel or center of light. The study concluded that there are colors associated with each chakra that can be used to re-balance chakras and improve their functioning by applying the color directly to the chakra location.
For instance, Aqua blue is the color associated with the throat (communications) chakra. When applied to the throat area, it may improve communications. This would be valuable if you need to have a difficult conversation with a loved one or person at work. It may also improve sales and other presentations. With this in mind, I continue to create aqua glass pendants to wear at your throat.
Similarly, I've made large green pendants to cover the heart area to improve its functioning in case of a broken heart or an unhealthy heart. According to the Harvard study, a green shirt may also be used effectively.
