Meaning of the Color Black
Chakra - 1st Chakra: Root Chakra - Grounding, Focus, and Survival
Element - Air
Dark colored crystals are very grounding, and deepen our connection to all things physical, (the natural being).
They help relieve us of fears specifically associated with our physical existence here on earth. They act as a shield, protecting and deflecting negative energy.
All dark stones - Black, Brown, and Deep Grey, are associated with the Root Chakra, and with survival here on earth. They govern our relationship with the physical world and our bodies.
If you have trouble seeing yourself, your body and it attributes as they really are, or have trouble accepting your shape, height, weight, color, etc, wear a necklace or bracelet of dark stones will help you to own and accept your appearance here on earth.
Spiritually Effects - Protection, Independence, Mystic Allure
The Power of Black - If you are a woman, or a man, and want to experience the power and feeling of "Black", I make this recommendation.
Dress in black - Put on Black Onyx, Jet, Sapphire, or Obsidian rings, earrings, necklace, tie tac, whichever, it doesn't matter. More is better. Then dress in Black, a little black dress, power suit, jeans or t-shirt. Again, it doesn't matter. Make sure to wear black stockings or socks, and black shoes. If you wear a coat, make sure it is Black...
Now. How do you feel?...
I will bet you feel... Assertive, Daring, Alluring, Mysterious and Independent...
That's what black gives you. Solid, grounded, powerful, in control, protected, shielded, confident, and fearless. Try it!\

The most effective way to add the power of black or correct a balance in the 1st Chakra is thru adding natural black crystals and gemstones to your everyday wardrobe so they are close to you for several hours at a time and touching your skin, (the pulse points: ears, wrists, ankles, and neckline) and thus effecting your aura and Root Chakra.
