Caño Cristales (the Crystal Channel) is a river in Colombia believed by many to be the most beautiful river in the world. It is called 'The Liquid Rainbow' due to its striking colors. From July to November of each year, the river bed is colored black, red, yellow, green, and blue - with its crystal clear water flowing through - reminiscent of the colors of the chakras. 

The body contains seven Chakras, or energy vortices and the goal is to work toward balance in each for these energy centers. Each chakra governs specific bodily functions of the organs in the body close to the area where they are located. All of the chakras have specific colors that can be used to heal and balance them. 

This Caño Cristales Earth Mala contains chakra stones for the seven chakra centers. It has been made with Obsidian, Carnelian, Yellow Calcite, Aventurine, Sodalite, Amethyst and Clear Quartz gemstone beads  - each corresponding to a chakra center and Rudraksha seeds (7mm). It has been hand knotted in a 108 pattern with strong nylon cord with one knot between each bead and is finished with a midnight blue and silvery gray handmade tassel.

Energy Aligning and Balancing - Chakras are the vortices of energy in our bodies; spinning wheels interacting with and moving the life force energy from within and outside us.  They are also centers of consciousness, working together in harmony, allowing us an ascending level of consciousness. If there are misalignments or disharmonies in any of the chakras, these will translate into blockages to the higher levels of thought and healing. Disharmonies manifest in physical or mental ailments or dysfunctions. Bringing balance to the chakras is important to good physical, mental and spiritual well being. Meditation is a key tool - focusing on the chakra frequencies through sound or mantra. Using visualization, affirmations, breathing, pranayama and yoga asanas also work to help clear blockages. Working with the colors and frequencies of the chakras through crystal work is also important. As a giver and receiver of energy, balancing your chakras is an ongoing process, but the rewards are immeasurable. 

Each chakra governs specific bodily functions of the organs in the body close to the area where they are located. All of the chakras have specific colors that can be used to heal them. Chakra stones are healing crystals that have a specific vibration and color.

The crystals used in the mala are: Root Chakra – Obsidian (grounding and strength), Sacral Chakra – Red Carnelian (drive and manifestation), Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow Calcite (vitality), Heart Charka - Green Aventurine (heart healing, balance and calm) Throat Chakra - Sodalite (creativity and communication), Third Eye (Brow) Chakra - Amethyst (spiritual growth, intuition, psychic abilities), Crown Chakra - Clear Quartz (master amplifier: accelerate intentions, focus energies).

Rudraksha seeds have strong positive vibrational energies and strong spiritual and healing properties. According to the ancient Vedic scriptures, they were formed from the tears (Aksha) of Lord Shiva (Rudra). They have been used traditionally by most Eastern religions for controlling stress, inducing general healing and well-being, meditation, and engendering positive changes. Rudraksha seeds bring a deep tranquility and concentration, making them ideal for meditation. They also enhance the flow of Chi in the body and help to balance yin & yang energies.
