How to Balance your Chakras using Earth Stones
In Sanskrit, the word chakra refers to "disk" or "wheel" and pertains to the energy centers located in your body. These spinning wheels of energy each correspond to nerve bundles and individual organs that surround them. Seven main chakras run along the base of the spinal cord. They are prevalent from your spine's root through your belly button and reach the crown of your head.

Each chakra has an individual purpose. The root chakra's perched at the base of the spine. It helps keep you grounded and rooted in security and stability. The sacral chakras located underneath your belly button. The sacral chakra's earthed in sexual and creative energy. The sacral chakra also pertains to emotional wellbeing in dealing with yourself and others. The solar plexus is located in the diaphragm and is associated with our physical power, desire, instincts, and "gut" feelings. Chakras can become unbalanced for a variety of reasons. An unbalanced chakra can manifest itself in the disease of the mind, body, and spirit. It's crucial to realign them through yoga and other meditation practices.
What can Unbalanced Chakras Cause?
People that specialize in yoga medicine like to think of chakras as out of balance rather than blocked. If a chakra lacks energy, or the opposite is true, there is too much activity; problems can arise. Imbalanced chakras can cause insecurity and depression or, at the other end of the spectrum, fearlessness, or false confidence. An unbalanced chakra can affect areas of your body that are associated with that chakra. Luckily specific healing stones can help balance your chakras.
