  • Heals and Balances Chakra

Serandite is associated with healing of the sacral and the base chakra. It focuses on the universal life force and brings balance to the life by solving the complexities of the modern lifestyle.

The sacral chakra is positioned below the navel and is considered to be the gravitational centre of the body that controls the flow of energy from the mind to the body and vice-versa. An unbalanced sacral chakra enhances depression, frustration, sexual desires, and one’s dependency on others. 

The root or the base chakra is situated at the bottom of the spinal cord. It is the place where kundalini energy of the person rests. The imbalance of root chakra makes the person feel lethargic, disconnected from the truth, and aloof from others. It leads to low level of activity and less enthusiasm towards life. The balanced base chakra regains the strength of the body making it spontaneous and full of stamina.

    Yeah Eli, Serandite is the best gemstone that is well composed of various powers and properties. Before going for it you should consult with your astrologer as he reads the horoscope of the wearer and suggest him a suitable gemstone to wear.

    Serandite does not specifically suit any zodiac and is not a birthstone. So, how can a person opt for this charm? Please suggest as I really want to try its healing properties and powers.
