A Simple Guide to Balancing the Chakras with Crystals
Are you feeling unbalanced, uninspired or unsatisfied?
Chances are your chakras are out of balance.
Chakras are wheels of energy centers we all have inside of us that align along our spine.
They effect nerves and major organs as well as impact our emotional and spiritual state.
Ideally all our chakras are in balance all the time, but that’s rarely the case.
So how do we bring balance to these energy centers?
Since ancient times, Indian Aryuvedic healers have prescribed crystals and gemstones as a way to heal our chakras and bring them in balance. Other methods of chakra healing involve a combination of yoga, meditation and diet.
Precious Gemstones are extremely powerful chakra healers. This is one of the reasons why royalty throughout the ages prized gemstones. For example, Amethyst, Heb. ahlmh; Sept. amethystos, also Apoc., xxi, 20, was the twelfth and last stone of the foundation of the New Jerusalem; and sapphire was the fifth stone of the rational (Ex., xxviii, 19; xxxix, 13), and represented the tribe of Issachar.
