What are Chakras?
There are seven main energy centres within our bodies, with each centre governing specific aspects of our selves and the energies created for those aspects.
Sometimes the energy in these centres becomes blocked, or clogged up ,with negative energy. In order to assist with our healing, we can focus on unblocking these chakra points.
One way to help clear our energy centres is with Reiki, explored further here.
The Connection Between Chakras and Crystals
Another way is to utilise the fantastic properties of crystals.
