Using crystals for chakra healing
Chakras are energy data banks that store our perceptions of experiences. They are like computers, each computer powers specific organs and stores information about specific types of events. Chakras help us understand where we are loosing power, when we are loosing power, why we are loosing power, and what we can do about it, should we choose to. Crystals can be wonderful tools to help us balance, strengthen and align our chakras.
