CHAKRAS AND CRYSTALS

Chakras are energy centers located in the body. There are major and minor chakras but the ones focus on here include Earth Star, Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown. When our chakras are blocked or out of whack, we may experience various mental, physical, psychological, emotional, or spiritual disharmony. Dis-ease sets in. When our chakras are balanced and the energy is freely flowing, we have an overall sense of well-being of the mind, physical and emotional body, and spirit.

Crystal energies can help to balance your chakras so you may feel lighter, happier, heart-centered, grounded, free, blissful, etc. Here is some introductory information about the chakras in addition to crystals recommendations. Note: Always use your intuition when selecting crystals!
