In almost every book you read on witchcraft or magick, you’ll come across some discussion of the seven chakras and their importance to your practice. Read more to learn how to balance yours and why you need to….
So, Exactly What Are Chakras?
The Sanskrit word chakra can be literally translated as “wheel” and there are typically considered to be seven of these wheels of power where universal energy enters the human body. Once energy enters the chakras, they transition the vital universal energy into a form that our bodies can use for optimum functioning. There are typically seven basic chakras that we focus on – beginning at the base of the spine and working up the spine to the tip of the head. You can see from this quick overview that their link to our universal power and vital energy makes chakras pretty important when it comes to doing any sort of work where you are trying to manifest a desired change in your physical world.
Keeping Your Chakras Balanced
Keeping your chakras balanced you will give you more energy and greater well-being overall. If you are doing any kind of ritual magick or witchcraft, it’s really important to maintain optimum functioning of your chakras because you will see the effects of your work magnified tremendously and will also avoid depletion of your vital energy from doing the work.
How can you balance your own chakras? Colors, crystals, essential oils and even thoughts can all be used to help balance your chakras. At Vervain & Rue™, we carry several tools to help you maintain chakra balance, which incorporate these techniques.

Using Colors and Crystals to Balance Chakras
Each of the seven major chakras has a corresponding color. By focusing your mind on the location of a particular chakra while imagining a corresponding colored glowing ball of light in that area, you will bring more energy to that area. Do this for all seven chakras in order (typically upward from root to crown chakra) and you will have balanced your chakras.
Both the chakra wand and chakra coloring meditation kits offered by Vervain & Rue™ (and pictured here) work off of this principle. We also offer the Sacral Chakra Balancing Crystal Kit if you find you need more work on that particular chakra.
