Basics for Individual Chakras  
Copyright © Ravenandcrone.com All rights reserved.

There are 7 major Chakras running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, each chakra is responsible for distributing energy to different organs, muscles and nerves. Through our Chakras, we receive and transmit physical, emotional, and spiritual energy.

The goal is to have all chakra centers clear, balanced, and vitalized for peak health and well-being.

Each chakra is associated with a particular area of the body and a color of the spectrum. Each Chakra is said to spin at a different frequency. When each Chakra spins at it's perfect frequency the body radiates perfect health; emotions are centered and balanced and we enjoy a sense of peace.

Stones are used at chakra centers for clearing, revitalizing, and healing. Generally, the selection of stones corresponds with the associated color of the chakra.
