Do you feel that it is not your best day today? Do you feel that you are being bogged down by various emotional, physical and mental issues? When everyday things in life cause anxiety, depression, or any other emotional upheavals it can cause the energy of the body to get imbalanced or clogged. This energy that flows through our body is our very own life force and is known to most as the Seven Chakras that reside in our body.
Chakra literally translates to wheel in the Sanskrit language but actually references to the spiritual energy in a person. It is believed that there are seven energy centers in the human body. It starts at the base of your spine and is all the way up to the top of your head. A person’s life force is considered to be spinning in its various centers to maintain balance.
In a healthy person, the seven chakras keep providing the right balance of energy to every part of your body, mind, and spirit. But, if any of the chakras spin too quickly, slowly, or has any disruptions in its movement, the health suffers.
Luckily though, if you are aware of the problem, the solution is never far away. Many people have found over the years that by using certain crystals or stones with certain healing powers, one can bring balance to the chakras.
Chakra stones or crystals have the purpose of balancing the energy center one is focusing on. Each of the centers is associated with one or more crystals which are chosen by looking at the stone’s attributes, including its energetic quality, color, and the personal affinity one feels.
