Chakra Rocks - Keep Calm

These Chakra Rocks make an incredible gift for the garden for friends and family. The rocks celebrate each of the chakras in your body – they are the universal points of well being. What we love about this garden is it is a secret path to enlightenment. Visitors may see the Magic Garden, or it might be partially hidden, which makes it a pleasant surprise when strolling thru. At the end of the path is a Cairn, stacked rocks. They mark the route on a journey or they can be a marker for a place of significance, a destination. We feel calmer just looking at these pictures.

Make Chakra Rocks

To make these simple Charka Rocks you need seven flat rocks (we used river rocks found in Duluth), acrylic paint, paint brush, clear coat and a Sharpie.

1Paint Chakra Colors: Paint the circle on clean, dry river rocks.  See image above for the colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, violet.

2 Draft the Symbols: Use a Sharpie to draw the Chakra symbols on the rocks.

3 Clear Coat Rocks: Add any paint embellishments you want, let dry then clear coat so the designs outlast the elements outside.
