A crystal alignment is the practice of laying stones on and around the body with the intention to re-align, recalibrate and balance the chakras and the four subtle bodies.
Crystals such as quartz and other precious and semi-precious stones each vibrate at a specific rate. Quartz crystals, including amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, and smoky quartz, are the most common stones used in metaphysical practices; however, this book covers a vast array of gemstones as they relate to the chakras and various emotions, thoughts, and situations, which also vibrate at different frequencies. All energy vibrates. Emotions, thoughts and life situations release energy and therefore vibrations. Positive affirmations used with each stone can be used to replace negative thoughts and vibrations and assist in bringing about the desired changes.
Everything that is created is created through intention. We create our lives with our thoughts, actions, words and deeds. Our thoughts vibrate out and return back to us in the form of our personal reality. For example, if you think about and visualize getting up for a drink of water, in short order you will be drinking a glass of water. Apply this same example to large life issues. What you place your attention on creating your reality through repetitive thoughts and visualization, just as you visualized drinking a glass of water. Thoughts and intentions can be amplified and actualized through the use of the spiritual tools.
The four subtle bodies include 7 chakras as they relate to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. Use gemstones as they associate by color or energy for each chakra to recalibrate and realign your energy by placing them on or near the specific chakra. Add a meditation or a guided imagery while the stones are on your body to have a deeply relaxing and transformative experience.
