Crystals are natural solids made from minerals which are formed in the Earth’s surface. There are countless types of crystals, all unique in color, mineral composition, and degree of hardness. Each crystal holds powerful vibrations and special properties. You can learn more about crystals here.
“It is understood that crystals work through the human energy system - that is chakras and aura - and not through the physical body. By their influence on the energy system, crystals can effect healing within the physical body.”
Chakras are, “energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions. Seven chakras are positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions that help make you, well, human”.
Each of the seven chakras is associated with certain concepts. Using crystals on the chakras can aid in healing and help to prevent dis-ease.
