Humans have seven primal energy centres known as chakras that absorb the ‘divine energy’ or prana from the universe. Healing energy is drawn from the universe, and the chakras that are spinning around receive it and distribute it inside our body to maintain a subtle balance of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Chakras are energy centres in the spinal column of our body and are considered to be the loci of life-energy (known as prana or shakti, which runs through them along pathways called nadis. Chakra cleansing is of utmost importance and we can use the power of ‘healing crystals’, which is a sacred ancient science.
