There are seven centres of the body from where energy could enter or leave – these centres are called chakras. They influence the mental and physical health of an individual either positively or negatively.
It is essential to heal the chakras when they get blocked or closed for their proper functioning. One way to heal your chakras is with the use of chakra stones. They are coloured crystals that open and balance chakras.
Like the colours of the rainbow, chakras have different and unique healing colours as well. Different coloured crystals are used to balance the mind and soul through the chakra system.
Every chakra has a frequency of its own distinctive wavelength, and you need to adjust it when it gets out of balance.
When you use gemstones for chakra healing, your soul and mind start to function correctly. When there’s an energetic balance, you become healthy emotionally as well as physically.
The chakras are present in a line through the middle of our bodies. The first chakra is present at the spine’s base; the next one is above it and so on and on.
Every chakra has a particular colour, and it is said that if you want the stone to work at its full, it is essential to place the stone at the place where that chakra is located.
It is also suggested to keep the gemstone or crystal near to you-you could put it in your pocket, or place the stone in a pouch and wear it to keep it near always.
All the chakra healing gemstones have special natural properties and they affect the chakra directly. They amplify the energy that is entering the particular chakra and open it or heal it. Here are seven chakras and the colour stones that affect them:
