- Chakras are the spinning wheels of conscious energy.
- There are 7 major chakras and 50 minor chakras.
Chakras absorb the life energy or Prana. Thus any blockage or disruption in the flow of this natural energy affects a person on all 3 levels – physical, mental and spiritual.
Prana has Healing qualities. As more prana or life force is absorbed by the body through the chakras it keeps a person balanced and healthy.
In crystal healing, crystals should be placed on the chakra points. Crystals of various colors help in the healing process by creating certain tranquil emotions and altering the state of mind.
The colors of the crystals are associated with the various chakra centers in the body. Each chakra has a color and if crystals of the same color are placed on the associated center, it amplifies the affects of both healing energies to that area of the body where the healing is needed.
When crystals are placed at corresponding chakra point, they cleanse and energise the chakra. This helps in healing and harmonizing energy.
