Crystals atomic structures include elements such as calcium or copper which are imperative to the makeup of our being. As with all things in nature, crystals vibrate at a frequency; which is said to connect with and enhance the various energetic frequencies exerted by our own bodies. The use of visualisation and channeling of energy makes crystals a great tool to aid the fruition of manifestations.
Crystals should be cleansed and charged regularly using methods such as exposure to sunlight, moonlight, water, soil, smudging and incense
Chakra translates to “wheel”. This is because the life force, that moves inside of you is spinning and rotating. This spinning energy has 7 centers in your body. The 7 chakras are distinct energy centers that start at the top of your head and end at the bottom of your spine. Even a basic understanding of the 7 chakras can enhance your life in surprising ways. They regulate all parts of your bodily system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease. Typically, 7 chakras meditation techniques focus on making the chakras open and keeping them in alignment. If they become blocked or out of sync, this can negatively impact your physical and psychological health. In a healthy, balanced person, the 7 chakras provide exactly the right amount of energy to every part of your body, mind and spirit.
