Chakra healing stones, also called chakra crystals, are stones that connect to the primary seven chakras in the human body. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for “wheel,” outlining each chakra as a spinning wheel of energy that moves in sync with each other. The chakra represents an energy center responsible for certain emotions, qualities, and organs in humans.
When these chakras lose balance or become blocked, it directly affects one’s spiritual, mental, and physical health. Healing crystals restore balance and natural energy flow in the chakra system for maximum well-being.
How Chakra Stones and Chakra Crystals Work
Crystals carry healing properties and spiritual energies that connect to each chakra uniquely. They hold vibrational energy that can transfer to the correlating chakra and provide healing powers for the body, mind, and soul.
Gemstones to heal the chakras have a wide range of physical health benefits, including reducing high blood pressure, chronic pain, anxiety, and a lower chance of heart disease. They also heal our internal wounds, heal emotional trauma, release negative thoughts and combat negative energies.
