As we all know, the earth and all living things on earth receive energy from sunlight.
Light travels at the speed of 186,000 miles (299,800 Km) per second. It never changes in our universe. But, light does change its frequency and wavelength when it diffracts and reflects. This is how colors are created.
Each color carries unique energy which influences our mood, emotion, focus, performance or even safety. Our energy needs various frequencies from different colors as if our body needs balanced minerals and vitamins. Color Therapy applies the positive attributes of light and colors to enhance desired areas in our life.
With color therapy, each color is associated with particular emotions and feelings. Each color has a unique frequency and vibration. When a particular color frequency enters the body, by wearing clothes or crystals in particular color, for example, that vibration can have an effect on us. It is easy to become out of balance. The appropriate color may allow our feelings and emotions to return to a balanced state and we'll feel better. In addition to mood enhancing, light/color therapy may have effects on a wide variety of health concerns or conditions as well.
Crystal healing is an holistic, non-invasive, vibrational energy-based system of healing. That is, it treats the whole person and their integrated energy system. It is therapeutic and deeply relaxing. The technique uses precisely placed crystals either on and/or around the physical body. Healing in crystal sense though,means bringing mind, body, spirit and environment back into harmony, restoring the body’s natural rhythm and equilibrium. It does not imply a cure.
WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
In Hindu and yoga teachings Chakras have been recognised for thousands of years, although they have only recently been introduced to the West. Chakras are the main energy points of our life force or "subtle body" - sometimes referred to as Spiritual Energy, Prana or Ch'i. The word Chakra comes from the ancient sanskrit word for "wheel", and Chakras are often perceived by healers as a spinning wheel of energy.
There are seven main Chakras linked to nerve centres along the spinal cord, as well as many minor Chakras throughout the rest of the body. This crystal set deals with the seven main Chakras.
Each of the main Chakras is located more or less in the centre of the body, spiralling out from both front and back. Each Chakra is associated with a color, a specific area of the body and specific energies. There is also a connection with various organs and endocrine glands. Stones and crystals recommended for specific situations or health problems are often chosen according to their colour relationship to the relevant Chakra.

Keep in mind, some people are naturally sensitive to crystal energy, others will be less aware. Your own belief system and expectations will play a part as will the energetic state of your body – some bodies will require energetic detoxing and unblocking before the therapy starts to take effect. There may be protective emotional or mental barriers to gently dismantle before the healing can begin.
