What is Crystal Healing?
Crystals are rocks, minerals, and other healing stones that humans have used for thousands of years for their healing powers. Crystal meanings are the healing properties ascribed to each type of crystal and gem. They are determined through a combination of experimentation, intuition, and sometimes channeling. An example of a popular crystal meaning is that amethyst helps with psychic development and intuition. The above list of crystals and their meanings with pictures should help you understand their powers.
How do Chakras relate to Crystal Properties?
Crystal healing is centered around chakras. Chakras are energy centers that correspond to health, wellbeing, creativity and all aspects of the human experience. Each of the seven chakras has a color associated with it. Crystals and healing stones of a corresponding color are used in chakra healing. For example, the root chakra colors are red, brown, and black, so you would look to gemstones like hematite and garnet. Many stones are helpful to multiple chakras so be sure to read the descriptions for each. I’ve listed the gemstones by color and chakra on the top menu to help you.
