Gram my-nominated musician and sound hea ler, Yulia Van Doren guides us through on-body crystal healing.
Placing crystals directly on specific points of the body activates healing and recharging. Our bodies are powered by a vibrant, rainbow- coloured energy system known as chakras. First written about over 4,000 years ago by holy monks in ancient India, chakras are energy vortexes that vibrate within and around our bodies. We use our chakras constantly to draw in and expend energy, and a well-working system is vital to how healthy you feel. You have seven main chakras, running from the bottom of your spine to the top of your head, each associated with a specific colour and energy focus. The chakra vortexes along the front of your body are delivery systems which move your energy out into the world, and the chakra vortexes along the back of your body receive energy and input. Experiment with the crystals on the next page – we’ve picked out three that are often used to create singing bowls.
