Understanding the Chakras Wisdom, Crystals and Essential Oils

All of us our seeking the same thing. We share the desire to fulfill the highest, tRuest expression of ourselves as human beings. ~Oprah

There are seven major energy centers in the body known as 'Chakras'. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel”. Our seven main chakras are connected to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can often lead to illness, so it's important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.

There are many ways to go about balancing the chakras but two of the most accessible, effective and relaxing practices are aromatherapy and crystal therapy. When paired correctly, crystals and essential oils can create potent combinations that help to release blocked energy and restore the body to full charge.

What is a Gemstone or a Crystal?

Many authors & teachers use the terms “crystals & gemstones” interchangeably, myself included. Gemstones are rare pieces of minerals that are found in the ground, and often cut and polished to be used in jewelry and other decorative work. Crystals are pure substances whose atoms, molecules, or ion are arranged in an ordered pattern. A gem can be a crystal, while a crystal cannot be a gem. Crystals like rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, agate, tiger eye etc. are used by mystics for energy healing. Stronger, pure gemstones are also used in gem therapy by individuals for achievement of personal well-being as well as material and spiritual objectives in life.

People have always been fascinated by crystals. Since prehistoric hunters and gatherers first discovered quartz shining in a riverbed or flint glistening on a hillside, men and women have sought to incorporate crystals into their lives—both as objects of beauty, and as tools for the body, mind, and spirit.

Simply put, crystals have resonance, which means they will vibrate in response to other frequencies in the area, like our bodies, essential oils or other crystals. Essential oils are crystalline structures that carry light. They are electromagnetic, as we are ourselves. They are thought to travel through the space between cells, where the molecules of emotion may also travel. The vibrational energy from the crystal helps to enhance the benefits of the essential oils and helps to balance the body.

You will find that a long list of features and benefits can be assigned to every crystal—which makes choosing a stone for your own needs a lot less daunting. The following properties apply to every crystal on earth:

• All crystals can help you balance your body, mind, and spirit.

• All crystals can receive and store energy.

• Crystals can reflect, refract, and magnify energy.

• Crystals can transform energy.

• Crystals can balance and harmonize energy.

• Crystals can organize energy.

What in an Essential Oil?

Essential oils are pretty amazing!!! They are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, flowers, bark, rind, and leaves of plants. Think of them as the plant's medicine cabinet. They keep the plan healthy by protecting the plans against environmental threats. We can also use these essential oils for ourselves and experience powerful health benefits!

The oils are extracted from the plant and distilled making them highly concentrated (1 drop of peppermint = 28 cups of peppermint tea). They have been used historically for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

Essential oils support the body in many ways. The particles in oils are so small they can penetrate the wall of every cell in the body, when applied topically or inhaled. Every essential oil has its own unique qualities that balance you physically, emotionally and spiritually. To benefit from their associated properties simply breathe in the scent deeply or place a couple of drops of pure, high quality oil on the pulse points or soles of the feet.

Quality really does matter when it comes to essential oils.

It is important when choosing an essential oil to think about purity and the highest of standards when it comes to the oil.

Keeping in mind the importance of selecting an oil company that considers not just the quality of the plants but also the positive impact on the globe. Cō-Impact Sourcing means that dōTERRA sources its oils from all over the world so that each oil is derived from its indigenous environment. When they are grown and harvested in the proper altitude, climate, seasons, and soil, you end up with a far superior product.

Another point to consider when choosing essential oils is the testing that is performed to ensure the highest of quality. Choosing an oil that is CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic-Grade (CPTG) is key. This is really important because every oil has been tested to show zero fillers, synthetics, dyes, pesticides, or contaminants of any kind. They are just pure, unadulterated oils grown by experienced farmers in their indigenous lands

Chakras are invisible to the naked eye and yet interconnect our physical and spiritual selves. Each of the seven chakras is tied directly to a specific region and nerve center of the body.

It is believed that each of the chakras absorbs and filters the energy that we emit through our thoughts and actions as well as through the thoughts and actions of all those that we come into contact with. When one of the chakras is out of balance as a result of negative energy flowing through it, it begins to spin too slowly or too fast. When a chakra is not balanced, it can effect that physical region of the body and also effect very specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.

Chakras are invisible to the naked eye and yet interconnect our physical and spiritual selves. Each of the seven chakras is tied directly to a specific region and nerve center of the body.

When a chakra is not balanced, it can effect that physical region of the body and also effect very specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.

Look at the physical symptoms or issues you might have and how they relate to the energy centers. By identifying an area in the physical body in need, we can then address through the use of essential oils and gemstones. It is recommended to apply the essential oils and gemstones to the location in the body near the energy center in need.

By infusing the essential oils with the gemstones, the essential oils become amplified by the properties of the gemstones. .
