Far West Handcrafts Review & Giveaway
Discovering the world of Etsy has opened up so many doors for me. I live in a small town, and its impossible to find the types of products I am looking for to suite my spiritual needs. But on Etsy, you can find lovely, hand crafted pieces that hold so much more meaning and power than anything store bought. One of the magical shops I came across is my travels is Far West Handcrafts. I immediately fell in love with their Chakra Hangings, which are so charged with the amazing positive energy of their creator that they are always glowing and warm to the touch.
If you are into Eastern philosophy,Wicca, meditation, Reiki, yoga, or anything New Age, you are probably familiar with at least the basics of the Chakras. For those of you who are not unfamiliar. The Chakras are the seven vortexes of spinning energy that start at your spine (root chakra) and go up to the top of your head (crown Chakra). Each Chakra vibrates with a different color and controls a different area of our emotions. If your Chakras are not functioning properly, it can cause you both emotional and physical problems. Practicing Yoga and mediation is a wonderful way to keep your Chakras in balance and help you become more in touch with your own spirituality.
At Far West Handcrafts, they have harnessed the power of the Chakras into beautiful, collectible artwork. The hangings are made from very sturdy gold tone wire and seven colored glass orbs that represent the seven colors of our Chakras from root to crown. They are a beautiful decoration in their own right, but they are also so much more. They are a wonderful tool for mediation that can be used as a focal point, especially for Chakra cleansing. They can also be used as an alter wand for ritual purposes. They can be kept indoors or outdoors because items of this quality will have no trouble standing up to the elements.
The Chakra Hanging is only one example of the beautiful hand crafted items you can find at Far West Hand Crafts. They also have elegant bottle stoppers, humming bird attractors, magic wands, lovely art prints and more. All are available at reasonable prices and shipping is quick. Each piece is a one of a kind creation that you can be proud to display or to keep as a special tool for your own private rituals.
