⦁ Crystal healing has been practiced for thousands of years, dating back to civilizations as ancient as the Sumerians of Mesopotamia or the Egyptians of ancient Egypt. Scientifically, we know that every living thing is energy and that energy cannot be created or destroyed; only transformed or transmuted. If we look at our Chakra system, a system designed in India between 1500 and 500 BC, we see 7 energy centers within the human auric field (the word Chakra translates to "wheel" or "vortex"- referring to these energy centers) that then allow us to easily break them down and heal our being. Each Chakra has an associated color, location, instinct and functio
Root (Muladhara) Chakra - Red - Located at the base of the spine.
Root Chakra is the Chakra of safety, groundedness and basic needs. When the Root Chakra is balanced, you will feel safe, connected (to yourself and others), stable and resourceful. When the Root Chakra is imbalanced, you will experience fear, fatigue, disconnectedness (from yourself and others), and paranoia of experiencing scarcity - having basic needs that cannot be met. When working with crystals for the Root Chakra, we use red or black stones. Black stones always suggest protection from dark energy, absorbing and transmuting it. The color Red, and the Root Chakra, vibrate at 396 HZ frequency, so using red stones for healing allows us to align our being with that frequency and heal the associated Chakra. Again, everything is energy and crystals are some of the most high frequency beings in existence. Physically, the Root Chakra impacts the large intestine, immune system and reproductive organs.
