OMKARA Signature Chakras 18k Gold-Plated Stainless Steel necklace
Essence of the necklace:
Chakra in Hindu means “wheel.” In Buddhist, Jain, and Hindu beliefs, Chakras are vital energy centers in the body. Located in the nerve ganglia along the spine, they are conceived as spinning vortices channeling cosmic energy. Blockages or interruptions of the flow of this energy are believed to cause illness, confusion, and emotional difficulty. Traditions differ about the total number of chakras, but most agree that seven are the most potent.
Muladhara, or root chakra, located at the base of the spine- it controls the ‘animal’ body- involuntary functions like breathing, instinct, survival.
Swadhistana, or base Chakra, controlling the reproductive drive.
Manipura, or Solar plexus, the center of the base emotions.
Anahata, or heart Chakra, love and self-acceptance.
Visuddha, or throat Chakra, controlling creativity and self-expression.
Ajna, or third eye, knowledge, intuition, and perception.
Sahasrara, Crown or Lotus Chakra, the link between the human and the divine. The movement of energy through the chakra system greatly resembles the cadeceus, or wand of Hermes.
The Om represents God, Creation, and the Oneness of all creation. It is most commonly used in Buddhist and Hindu religions. Om is more specifically called Pranava, which means, “it infiltrates life and runs through our breath.”
The first breath of creation signifies that Om is the primordial sound. Om is often seen as the utmost of all mantras or vibrations. Today Om is often practiced as a part of yoga.
The symbol representing Om is called the Omkar, and has four parts, representing the four states of human awareness:
The ordinary waking or material state
The state of deep sleep
The dream state
Absolute conscience or the awakened state
