What Are Chakras?
It’s amazing how much of our current day-to-day lives are affected by beliefs and traditions from thousands of years ago. Chakras, a concept from the beginning of Hinduism (from around 1500 and 500 BC) are a very important aspect or Tantra of Hinduism.
Chakra, meaning “wheel” in Sanskrit, refers to the wheels within us that are made of energy. Everybody has even these wheels that align along our spines. Each wheel is associated with a different color, organs, elements, gemstones, and emotions. These chakra wheels have been referred to as having important effects on our spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental health.
The Function Of The White Chakra
The final, and least known chakra, is called the Soul Star and is found floating above your head. This chakra is often symbolized by a glowing star of bright white. This chakra is seen as the gateway of divine love and spiritual wisdom. This chakra is connected to your higher self and can be used as a powerful balancing and self-centering tool.
The star chakra is said to be connected to the energy of our soul’s past and has an effect on:
The Soul Star chakra is also associated with gemstones:
- Clear Quartz
- Clear Danburite
Your Soul Star chakra can be used as a powerful mental and spiritual tool to help you stay attuned and connected with your surroundings, both physical and spiritual. With the aid of the Soul Star chakra, many yogis have claimed to be able to heighten their metaphysical abilities and even learn about the past lives of their soul!
White Chakra Color and It’s Meaning
Our Soul Starchakra is symbolized with a blinding white. Across the world, the color whtie has multiple cultural, societal, and spiritual meanings. There’s also personal connections to colors as well which can influence your relationship with colors.
In the traditional Hindu sense, white symbolizes:
Here are some other cool cultural connections with the color white
Asia: Mourning, death, and funerals
Western Countries: Neutrality, peace, purity.
Middle Eastern Country: Mourning, peace, and equality.
White, depending on where you’re from, can mean two very different types of get togethers. If you’re from the west, you can be joining a wedding, whereas if you’re from Asia, you might be showing up to a funeral. White, often confused as the absence of color, is actually the combination of all colors across the spectrum!
Wearing Soul Star
Haven’t you ever heard that you don't wear Soul Star after Labor day? Yeah, that rule is old news! White, while a pain in the rear to clean if you’re messy crafters like us, can give you a fresh, clean, and elegant look that can make you shine bright in a world of neutrals.
Crafting With Soul Star
One of the best things about crafting with white is the possibilities! Do you leave it as it is, dye it, or a mix of the two? When crafting with white, you are working with a blank slate to do and express yourself as you please. With white materials, you can make something precious and special like a baby blanket or a treasured family heirloom!
