Crystal healing is a healing technique which focusses on the healing of energy centres in the body, it is often used as an alternative to medical techniques
Crystals are placed on or around the body acting as a conductor of energy, this allows positive healing energy flow into the body and cause negative and toxic energy to be drawn out.
There are many different crystals, all of which have different healing properties associated with them. The more experience you gain with crystal healing, the more familiar you will become with these properties. In todays post I will be discussing our crystal healing essentials along with some of our moon charged favourites!
Wait, what do you mean, energy centres of the body?
First off, you need to understand one thing: You are energy
All living things are created by, and comprised, of energy. The ability of your energy centres to function at their best is what keeps you emotionally, physically, and spiritually balanced
The energy centres in the body are known as Chakras
Chakras help to regulate all the functions in the body, from organ function to to the immune system and your emotions. Seven chakras are positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency and colour.
