Chakra Gemstones: Beautiful Healing
- Gemstones and crystal have been considered powerful healing tools throughout history. Native American cultures used Turquoise in ceremonial rites. The Tibetan Monks make prayer beads of amber and turquoise. Hebrews used onyx as oracle stones (known as Thummim stones).
- Gemstones absorb and store light. Light, combined with the unique properties of each stone, create a specific vibrational frequency for the stone. These gemstone frequencies are attuned to specific Chakras. By placing a gem on or near the intended Chakra, it enhances and stabilizes the energies in that area. Often people carry healing gems in pockets, purses, or wear them as jewelry. This lens will review the gemstones associated with each specific Chakra and provide resources to help you find your own gems!
