From herbs and water, to crystals, Mother Earth provides us with numerous healing tools. Crystals emit frequencies to expand, clear and balance chakras, the energetic vortexes of our consciousness. In times that we need grounding, or uplifting, crystals can harmonize our energetic body. Some encourage us to take action, while others bring us towards introspection. They illuminate our shadow and ask us to learn from our wounds.
