Root Chakra Crystals - Healing your Adrenals
You are entirely made of energy.
The Chakras (Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit) are the energy centers in your body. They can be described as wheels of colored light that spin, and keep our spiritual/mental/emotional bodies aligned harmoniously with our physical bodies.
We have seven main chakras that regulate each of our organs, as well as our emotions and immune system. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions in your life.
