THE POPULARITY OF HEALING STONES
Healing crystals are becoming more and more popular with people using gemstones to balance energies and become more in tune with their body and mind.
Crystals have been used for thousands of years, with ancient people using them for magical and spiritual powers. Although there is no evidence to show that crystal healing works and is not a form of medicine, more and more people are willing to try the possible benefits of crystals.
It is believed that crystals contain vibrational energy and they impart this energy to you and balance your emotional, physical and spiritual energies.
WHAT IS CHAKRA?
Chakra is an ancient meditation practice and originates from an ancient Sanskrit word, which translates to 'wheel'. Chakra represents the 7 chakras around your body, with 7 different energy centers. Each chakra is connected to an area of the body and to an emotional state. It is believed that by balancing these energies, your emotional, physical and spiritual well-being will benefit.
