Crystals for the 7 Main Chakras
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. A Chakra is like a vortex: a constantly revolving wheel of energy. These vortexes connect the subtle bodies and act as transducers for life-force energy, which is also known as Qi or Praana.
Chakras are located in seven main different points along the spinal column of the human body . All seven Chakras are connected to various organs and glands within the body. When we are stressed, going through change, illness, emotional challenges and new growth patterns we use a lot of energy within a particular Chakra. This in turn can deplete and unbalance the energies. To re-balance and "refuel" the Chakra's, we can turn to Reiki and also Crystals for support.
