For centuries, crystals and gemstones have been associated with mankind and nature.
People use them as a way to create happiness or for crystal healing purposes.
The properties of crystals with or without similar minerals, its reaction may differ on one individual to another.
And not everyone reacts the same way when exposed to them.
Some types of minerals are likely to produce a certain result, but not all specimens from the same type have similar properties whether if it’s physical or metaphysical.
There are books that describe about crystals and gemstones and how effective are their benefits when used as a healing tool.
Selecting the right crystals one can be challenging especially if you don’t have a clue on which crystal to choose, what it can do for you and being doubtful if the crystal will be beneficial to you.
Today, almost every alternative healing therapy system revolves round the word “Chakra”.
Universal spiritual healing techniques have been used over the ages as a way of ensuring good health for both the body and the soul.
On top of the many different techniques use in spiritual healing, chakra healing has become a vital part of most spiritual healing techniques to complete the healing process.
To understand what Chakra Healing is, we must first understand what chakras are. In Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language, chakras means “wheels,” and those who can see them describe chakras as spinning wheels of light.
It is believed that Chakras are points or knots of concentrated energy in our subtle human body located on a vertical pane, parallel to the spine on the Subtle Body.
These chakras are not only connected to the physical body but are also associated with the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether) of which we are made of.Its energy flows throughout the human physical body and help us to accept, assimilate and give out life force energy.
Ancient tradition holds that there are numerous invisible channels around and inside the body of a living person. Through these channels or traditionally known as Nadirs, also known as Prana in India and Chi in China flows the life force energy. It is said there are 72 of these channels of which 3, are regarded as the most important conduits for the life force energy. The Sushumna, the Ida and the Pingala.

To many, crystals are simply natural formations found all over earth and occassionaly used for decorative purposes.
To crystal healers, each crystal possess its own energy, and vibrates at frequencies which can be channelled into healing a person’s physical, mental and spiritual body.
This practice of harnessing a crystal’s energy to clear a person’s blockages and align their chakras is known as crystal healing. It is believed that if a person’s chakra system is balanced, his or her physical body will then be able to naturally self-correct and heal.
Crystal healing is believed to have originated from Egypt or even dating further back to the ancient time of the Atlantis civilisation.
During a crystal healing session, crystals are placed on different parts of a person’s body, usually on their chakras. They can also be placed around a person’s body in an attempt to create an energy grid such that it surrounds the person with healing energy.
