The chakras are a well organized system that keeps our life force energy directed and fluid. Our health and well being depend on active, balanced chakras. As the chakras are all interdependent, when one is shut down the others work to maintain life force and compensate, creating imbalance and illness. If the flow becomes stagnant or sluggish, so long as this is temporary, they are able to re-activate themselves. If the situation becomes chronic, they need to be stimulated. By learning to activate, balance and align your chakras you open the doors for your full potential to be recognized.
Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as it has the power to focus energy. A healer will usually wear several pieces of jewelry with amethysts set in silver, especially an amethyst necklace.
