You’ve probably heard of the mystical powers of gemstones and wondered about it being fact or fiction. It is in fact true! When rightly used, the stones activate or amplify vital energies and act as healing and revitalizing agents.
How do healing stones work?
Crystal healing is based on the belief that stones or crystals have a natural healing frequency that can be activated to contribute to moving or balancing energy around them. In the case of chakra stones, the vibrational signature of each crystal corresponds or resonates with specific chakras.
How to choose a Chakra stone?
It goes back to the ancient Vedic masters, who have identified 7 energy centres or chakras in the human body. The ideal is to have all chakra centres clear, balanced, and vitalized for optimal well-being. And here’s a simple guide of how you can channel the magic of gemstones to do just that:
