The use of natural mineral crystals in meditation and the healing of a body’s chakras date back hundreds of years. The body has seven major chakra centers through which we gain physical, emotional and spiritual energy. Many people believe that for optimum wellness, it is beneficial to have all of your chakra centers balanced, clear and energized. Each chakra focuses on a specific area of your body and is associated with a different color.
You can use stones of each color to balance, clear, heal and energize your chakras. Clear quartz brings positive energy to every level and can be used to amplify the effect of any other crystal, but is especially associated with the crown chakra. At Mini Me Geology, we have an entire selection of crystals for meditation and healing. We offer both rough and tumbled stones both individually and in kits.
