Healing Chakra Stones
Chakra Stones - The Power of Crystals and Holistic Healing
The chakra system was developed in the East. In Sanskrit, the word 'Chakra' means wheel. Chakras are believed to be 'wheels' or vortexes of energy that relate to the seven major centres of the body through which vital energy flows.
Worry, stress and negative emotions block and close the chakras, creating bottlenecks which jams energy. If left untreated blockage can lead to disease. When all seven centres are clear, aligned and balanced, vital energy can flow freely and a person is thought to be able to reach their optimal wellbeing, physically and emotionally.
Crystals and stones relate to the Chakras according to their colour. Placing an appropriate stone on the chakra whilst meditating or concentrating on wilfully releasing negative vibrations, energises that chakra, helps to release blockages, making alignment and effortless energy flow possible.
