Crystals and Charkas
“From the great spiral galaxies, thousands of light-years across, to the trillions of atoms swirling in a grain of sand, the universe is composed of spinning wheels of energy. Flowers, tree trunks, planets and people, each is made of tiny wheels turning inside, riding upon the great wheel of the earth, spinning in its orbit through space. A fundamental building block of nature, the wheel is the circle of life flowing through all aspects of existence.”
Anodea Judith, PhD.
I find it challenging to talk about healing crystals without talking about our Chakra system. Those starting out getting to know crystals often ask me what they are and how to work with them. I hope to give a very basic overview of the Chakra systems and how we can use crystals to help with our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
The Chakras are fundamental in understanding a holistic way of being and healing. We humans are a big ball of energy, deeper inside that ball of energy are smaller balls of energy, swirling wheels of life (Chi, Prana, life force). Together they form who we are and emit a life force field around us (aura, subtle body, energy field). There are many chakras, but I want to talk about the 7 body chakras that play such an important role in our wellbeing.
You can click on each Chakra symbol below and it will take you to a brief summary and overview of that particular Chakra.
