The Chakras are the seven power points in the human body that circulate energy or the life force also known as prana. They are vertically aligned in the center of the body close to the spine. If the Chakras are unbalanced it can affect physical and mental health. The spiritual development is also connected with the good health of the Chakra.

There are several ways to balance your chakras, but one of the most effective (and pleasant) methods is to use Crystals and Gemstones, these have long been used for healing–of mind, body and spirit.
Use your intuition to pick the right stone. If you’re having trouble, a good rule of the thumb is: choose the stones of the same color as the chakra you are working with. Obviously, there are some variations, and the clear “no color” crystals work with all chakras.
Focus on a specific area or intent with your healing, you can choose a one of the 7 main chakras in the body:
