Chakras have been defined as energy points in our bodies that control our emotional and physical well-being.
There are 7 that have been identified, each focusing on a different aspect of our body. Some of our crystals are aligned with one or more of our chakras which means that crystal is believed to bring balance to that energy point.
So what are the 7 chakras?
They are broken down into:
- Solar Plexus
- Third Eye
