Chakras are the main energy points of our life force or "subtle body" - sometimes referred to as Spiritual Energy, Prana or Ch'i. The word Chakra comes from the ancient Sanskrit word for "wheel", and Chakras are often perceived by healers as a spinning wheel of energy.
There are seven main Chakras linked to nerve centres along the spinal cord, as well as many minor Chakras throughout the rest of the body. This crystal set deals with the seven main Chakras.
Each of the main Chakras is located more or less in the centre of the body, spiralling out from both front and back. Each Chakra is associated with a colour, a specific area of the body and specific energies. There is also a connection with various organs and endocrine glands. Stones and crystals recommended for specific situations or health problems are often chosen according to their colour relationship to the relevant Chakra.
