What is a Chakra?
Chakra’s are the energy centres that link our subtle energy bodies to our physical body. These centres of energy govern the core emotional and physical function of our being. When these energy centres are blocked or out of harmony, it stops the life force energy from freely circulating which causes distress and dis-ease in the body and a disconnect between mind, body & spirit. Each chakra is associated with a specific colour and crystal.
Crystals provide a form of healing that works alongside your body’s inner healer. It helps to brings things back into balance. Crystals are concerned with subtle energies; a lot of their work is done through realigning the aura that surrounds the physical body and cleansing the chakras. The mind is closely involved in crystal healing. Belief in the process aids the process however you do not have to believe but just have an open mind.
‘The Tibetans have used crystals for thousands of years and see closed-mindness as one of the major causes of disease. They also believe as do many Western doctors, that the body has a natural tendency towards wellness and that, if you listen to your body, you will instinctively know what is good for you. So, when you are attracted to a particular crystal, it will be because that crystal has properties which resonate with what your body or psyche needs’

By placing the associated crystal on the chakra will help to unblock the energy within the chakra and aids the flow of life force energy around the body. Meditating with healing crystals will help you find that balance within and will aid in your emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing.
