Chakra-Balancing Crystal Alignment
A chakra-balancing crystal alignment is a deeply spiritual and profoundly relaxing experience, the power of which cannot be overstated. Also known as the laying on of stones, the intention of a crystal alignment is to balance the chakra system. In a chakra-balancing crystal alignment, crystals are laid on and around the body at key energy points. Stones are placed with the intention to balance the body’s energy centres or chakras. This can be done while listening to a guided imagery meditation. It can also be done in complete silence with the intention of quieting the mind while restoring balance. You can perform the crystal alignment for yourself as well as for others.
When to Do a Crystal Alignment
A crystal alignment is an excellent tool for spiritual healing to assist you in restoring balance to your system and to promote physical healing as a complement to traditional therapies.

It’s a good idea to incorporate a crystal alignment as part of a regular meditation practice.
