Chakras? What are they?

What are Chakras?
I like to think of them as spinning circles of energy.
Think of a spinning pinwheel- the kind you had when you were a child- the flimsy metallic flower spinny wheel thing on a stick. You would hold it up to the wind and it would spin – slowly if it wasn’t windy and quickly if it was gusty.
Now imagine that you have these ‘pinwheel‘ energy centres in your body. From your Crown Chakra – the top of your head – all the way down to your Root Chakra.
Little energy balls spinning & vibrating away to their own rhythm.
How do the crystals work? I think its vibrations & energy…
We are made of energy and energy creates vibration. If our Chakras are a little off kilter than perhaps if we match the vibrations of the stones to our Chakras they may become more balanced.
I like to lie comfortably, perhaps play some soothing music, diffuse essential oils s and place a stone that pertains to that Chakra on that area of my body.
Relax. Meditate. Visualize.
