Chakra Healing Crystals
Chakra Healing With Crystals
In this Section you will learn about crystals and their connection to healing your Chakras. When you pair certain crystals with chakras in the body, these gemstones work to amplify your healing intentions and bring your chakras back in balance.
Crystals and Their Connection to Your Chakras
Chakras are circular vortexes of energy (or sometimes pictured as flowers with petals). They are the focal points of your life force, or prana–and their individual states are vital to your holistic well-being.
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.
The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the mind-body system. To visualize a Chakra in your body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy that keeps you vibrant, healthy, and alive.
Consider this, if we are all energetic beings of limitless potential, why do we face challenges in so many aspects of our lives? Why do our relationships, finances, career and love life sometimes go awry?
The answer may be that the Chakra controlling this part of your life is dysfunctional
–which means it’s your job to strengthen it.
Today, more and more people are realizing that the ancient science of Chakra Healing holds the key to virtually everything you’ve ever wanted in life. Have you ever wondered how some people can…
- Almost effortlessly become top performers at work, have all the money they need for necessities and luxuries alike, and look fabulous doing it? That’s because their 1st Chakra, which controls their career and finances, is strong.
- Indulge in mind-blowing lovemaking multiple times a week, even if they’re extremely busy and have been married for years? Their 2nd Chakra which controls their sensuality and passion is most likely glowing.
- Consistently project an image of unwavering confidence, even in the toughest of situations, and play an active role in their families and communities? That’s all thanks to the radiance of their 3rd Chakra, which controls their personal power.
- Enjoy deep, loving and understanding relationships with their teenage children, spouses, friends co-workers, and solve any dispute amicably? Their 4th Chakra, which controls their relationships, is no doubt healthy.
- Always speak their minds, wear their hearts on their sleeves, and be respected for their authenticity? That’s a shining 5th Chakra, which controls their true voice, at work.
- Rely on their “gut feelings” to intuitively solve problems at home and make important decisions at work–and be right about it most of the time? They’ve got an efficient 6th Chakra, which controls their intuition, to thank for that.
- Experience an unwavering connection to God and their higher selves, and savor the security of knowing they’re being watched over at all times? Their 7th Chakra, which controls their divine consciousness, is surely empowered.
