If you keep up with my blog, you probably have seen my posts about each one of the chakras. If you haven’t, let me give you some info on them. Well, the word Chakra is Sankrit for “wheel”. Chakras are the 7 wheels or energy centers in our body that help keeps our mind, body, & spirit balanced. But when our chakras aren’t aligned we become exposed to diseases (mental, physical, & spiritual). Some ways to heal your chakras back to health are by using crystals & herbs. Herbs & crystals have very powerful vibrations that are able to connect us back to mother earth. That’s probably why they have been used for centuries to heal many different ailments. They help to stimulate your chakras & clear the psychic debris. It also has a great effect on your physical body!
