Every crystal is associated with one or more of the chakras based mostly on the stone’s color, because each chakra is associated with a different color.
So, what is a chakra?
According to Indian religious tradition, a chakra is a focus of energy that spins like a wheel. The chakras correspond to different parts of our physical body. There are seven main chakras that are talked about most often. These seven chakras influence our everyday lives. The chakras work both separately and together.
Ideally, all of our chakras work equally well so that energy can flow easily from one chakra to another. If any of our chakras are out of balance — either overactive or underactive — we may experience spiritual, emotional, and/or physical problems.
Below are some quick notes about each chakra — their location, their colors, and a few of the many crystals that can help balance the energy of that particular chakra. Click the links if you would like more details about a particular chakra and learn the possible signs of imbalance.
