Crystals have long been used as jewellery and for aesthetic purposes. Their beauty is just remarkable. But crystals have healing abilities not the ‘crystal powers’ that can make superheroes strong or superman’s kryptonite. Crystals were already used for thousands of years to heal illnesses and disorders, for the improvement of their health, to repel evil and for good luck.
Our bodies have chakras or auras which are known to be the wheels of energy. There are seven chakras in the body that influence a particular emotion, body part, individual development, thought process, energy level and color. When unbalanced there are also different disorders and illnesses that correspond to a person’s chakra. With all these in mind, there are also specific chakra crystals that are associated with a particular chakra. These chakra crystals as stated above are used to balance, enhance or heal an individual’s chakra.
More often than not, there should be balance in the seven chakras for us to attain our optimum well being. In order to use chakra crystals for healing they must be in their pure form so that they would work at their best. Or if that isn’t available, a strand of crystals will do.
