Below is a beginner’s guide with an overview of common must have crystals and their uses to help you get started.
A brief history of crystal therapy
The earliest known mention of chakras is found in the Vedas, ancient Indian texts that describe the philosophy of yoga. Over time, the ideology has influenced both Hindu and Buddhist practices.
There are many different chakra systems, but the one most common to modern practices is the seven-chakra system, which consists of the following chakras:
- Sahasrara (crown chakra)
- Ajna (third eye chakra)
- Vishuddha (throat chakra)
- Anahata (heart chakra)
- Manipura (solar plexus chakra)
- Svadhisthana (sacral chakra)
- Muladhara (root chakra)
Throughout history, many groups in different parts of the world have used crystals, also known as near-gemstones, as a form of healing. Related practices can be traced to Ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece, China, Indigenous groups in modern-day North and South America and more.
Crystal therapy is a beautiful cross-cultural tradition focused on channelling energy to heal the mind, body and spirit—one that we are grateful to have benefited from in our own lives and to share with others through Chakra Pocket Bodywear.
