SPIRITUAL ATTRIBUTES

Dalmatian Stone strengthens the spirit and provides a physicality to the soul. It reminds us we are spiritual beings on a human journey and to joyfully embrace our incarnation while we are here.

Dalmatian Stone opens the Base, Sacral and Earth Chakras, grounding and assisting one in coming to terms joyfully with being in incarnation. 

The Base/Root Chakra, is located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinaesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body gains strength and stamina, and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.

The Sacral Chakra is located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the centre of gravity and Life Force of the body.

The Earth Chakra is located between and slightly below the feet. It holds the soul into carnation and creates a solid connection to the planet Earth, allowing excess and out-of-balance energies to flow from the body.
