Chakras are energy points in your body that align with your emotional and physical well-being. This energy system dates back to ancient India, where it was believed that stones and crystals had the power to heal the body and open chakras. While there’s no scientific evidence behind that, setting intentions and thinking positively does have powerful effects. Using the beauty and enchantment of crystals as a focal point during meditation or incorporating them into your own unique rituals can provide a sense of calm and relaxation. Here’s what to know when looking for your first set of crystals.

A tip is to take a stone from your kit that you feel a pull to and keep it close (your pocket, deskside or under your pillow) for several days. Then look up which stone you chose and what energy it’s associated with—and reflect on if that was energy you needed during that time.
