Information on Healing Stones, Chakra Symbols
have been used for centuries as healing tools. Many were used
as protection, to keep away negativity, or to keep one safe from harm.
They were worn in jewelry, crowns, placed in bags and carried as amulets
or taken internally as an elixir. So the practice of using stones to
enhance our well being is nothing new. More and more people are becoming
frustrated with Western medicines approach to health and quality of
life. "Treat the symptoms with medication" or "cut it
out" seems to be a regular answer. As more people look for alternatives,
the wonderful ability of stones to help us is becoming more evident.
And stone therapy is also a wonderful aid to the Western approach.
