Chakra Series

My large selenite wand is a great recharging station for my chakra crystals.

First off, what is a chakra?

The body has 7 main energy centers, known as chakras. From bottom to top, they are:  root,  sacral, solar plexus, heart, third eye, and crown. These energy centers allow energy to flow from one part of your body to the other. The position of each chakra is in correspondence to our endocrine glads that are responsible for the release of hormones in our body, keeping them in balance and controlling major nerve functions (keeping us healthy). When your chakras are aligned and functioning properly, you feel a sense of physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. When misaligned or blocked, we can experience a wide range of symptoms and feel a sense of unease.

There are a variety of methods to help correct the flow of energy in your body, specific to what chakra is in need of some extra attention. This series will explore each chakra individually and give suggestions for healing, including the use of crystals, essential oils, yoga, and sound therapy.
