Chakras and Crystals
Chakra stones are healing crystals that have a specific vibration and color. Chakra stones are used to activate, balance, or amplify the energy of the chakras. Crystal energy is the power that crystals naturally give off and that you are able to use to heal yourself.We can apply the metaphysical properties of these more powerful crystals, as you learn how you can use them to heal yourself.It is a great advantage to have natural crystals of any sort in your environment, and the stones with a higher vibration are powerful aids to move you forwards in your life.Some crystals have higher frequencies, and their strong energy fields can be used to raise your personal vibration.
Crystals are part of the earth itself and of nature. They are comprised of quartz and silica, which are also a major component of the human body. Like color, crystals also emit a vibration frequency, which matches the electromagnetic field of both the earth and its human occupants. The most widely used crystal today is clear quartz and it can be found powering watches, computers and radios to name a few. A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules, or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions. In addition, macroscopic single crystals are usually identifiable by their geometrical shape, consisting of flat faces with specific, characteristic orientations. The scientific study of crystals and crystal formation is known as crystallography. The process of crystal formation via mechanisms of crystal growth is called crystallization or solidification.
The word crystal derives from the Ancient Greek word κρύσταλλος (krustallos), meaning both “ice” and “rock crystal”, from κρύος (kruos), “icy cold, frost”
Crystal healing is based on the belief that stones or crystals have a natural healing frequency that can be activated to contribute to moving or balancing energy around them. In the case of chakra stones, the vibration signature of each crystal corresponds or resonates with specific energy centers.We may use intention and intuition to activate the healing power of the stones. Active imagination or visualizations could help in accessing the space in which you can use stones or crystals in combination with chakra healing.We can check the set of stones typically associated with each chakra. Chakras can have several stones and you will need to determine which one works best for you and in which circumstance.
We may also use our intuition or intuitive perception to pick our healing stone. For that, we use our intuitive sense or senses that are most developed for us. We may look at stones and see which ones are most appropriate because of their glow. We may feel the energy of the stone by hovering over it with your hand and feeling a tingling or heating sensation. Or we may just know which one to choose when we need it.
The use of chakra stones for chakra balancing can help you acquire energy balance that is essential to your overall emotional and physical well-being. Chakra stones’ healing properties and meanings are unique to each stone. It’s important to remember that all stones and crystals possess their own vibration frequency.Energy is channeled and magnified through the crystal. It then affects or enters in resonance with the vibration or frequency of the chakra you’re focusing on.Beside that most stones of a specific color will be the stone for healing a particular chakra, some stones may be used to heal more than one chakra. Chakra stones’ healing properties and meanings are unique to each stone. It’s important to remember that all stones and crystals possess their own vibration frequency. To dispel chakra blockages and promote balance, you must use stones with a vibration frequency that matches the chakra you are wanting to heal. To dispel chakra blockages and promote balance, you must use stones with a vibration frequency that matches the chakra you are wanting to heal.
There are many ways to use chakra stones for healing. Once you’ve chosen the stone you want to use, place it near or on the chakra location on the body. A laying down position is easier for working with crystals. However, you may use a stone while you’re standing or sitting by simply holding it in your hands or wearing it as jewelry on a pendent, in your pocket to keep it close to your body.Focus on activating the resonance between the stone and your chakras with the power of your intention, meditation, or simply relax knowing you have the support of your chakra stone to harmonize frequencies. Use of chakra stones for chakra balancing can help you acquire energy balance that is essential to your overall emotional and physical well-being.The most common technique for using chakra stones is known as the “Laying on of Stones,” It involves placing cleansed and charged healing stones on the body’s specific energy centers for a period of time.A healing crystal, multiple stones or gemstones may be placed upon each chakra. It is essential to lay stones of corresponding chakra color in the area that needs attention. Also, try to use healing stones with the same meaning as your intent, such as amethyst to dispel negativity or quartz to promote balance.
Position stones beginning with the root chakra and move upward to help direct energy flow. If energy needs to be ushered upward toward the crown, all stones are placed so they’re pointing “up.Place stones on each of the energy centers, such as:
- Top of head — crown chakra
- Forehead — Third Eye chakra
- Throat — throat chakra
- Heart — heart chakra
- Navel — solar plexus chakra
- Pelvic area — sacral chakra
- Groin or feet area — root chakra
We can also balance Chakras by placing cleansed and charged healing stones near you — such as on your pillow as you rest.Similarly, placing healing and chakra stones around your home can serve a dual purpose. Not only can these decorations be aesthetically pleasing, they can help dispel residual negativity and promote positive energy in the environment.Another popular way to use chakra stones is to wear them as jewelry. You’ve probably seen amethyst or quartz talismans and pendants. Wearing heart chakra stones as jewelry, such as a necklace so they lay close to your heart, can help facilitate heart chakra balance.If you’re wearing a healing stone as jewelry, you may consider a stone that supports your overall energy or fits a specific intention. The crystal could have a physical healing purpose, reflect emotional or spiritual aspirations – or you may just be attracted to a color that resonates with you that day. Remember that the stone power is increased by the clarity of your intention. So make sure you choose carefully.Our recommendation is to use a type of string or mounting piece that does not interfere with the stone healing power. Neutral materials, such as thin ropes, leather, or pure metals, such as silver or gold are good options.Wearing chakra stone jewelry around your neck or as bracelet is a statement both for yourself and for others. Stones are powerful amplifiers and may radiate or attract energy both in and out through their natural qualities, symbolic and cultural meanings, as well as the personal affinities you have with them.
Don’t forget to cleanse or recharge your stones before and after using them. Healing stones must be cleansed prior to use. Cleansing dispels all the bad energy that is absorbed by the stone so it is refreshed. If you’re unsure how to cleanse stones, there are numerous recommendations and guides online.For that, there are many methods including leaving them under water or salt water for a little while (use caution with salt water as some crystals are sensitive to it), leaving them under the sun or the moon light for the day or the night, smudging them with sage, burying them in the soil for an extended period of time for more intense regeneration.
Energy is channeled and magnified through the crystal. It then affects or enters in resonance with the vibration or frequency of the chakra you’re focusing on.Beside that most stones of a specific color will be the stone for healing a particular chakra, some stones may be used to heal more than one chakra. Chakra stones’ healing properties and meanings are unique to each stone. It’s important to remember that all stones and crystals possess their own vibrational frequency. To dispel chakra blockages and promote balance, you must use stones with a vibrational frequency that matches the chakra you are wanting to heal.
There are many stones for each chakra, and various crystals may be particularly powerful to aid you to heal in different ways. There is a wide range of healing attributes that pertain to various stones and the things that they are known to remedy.
Each chakra is typically associated with one or several stones. Here’s a list to help you chose your healing crystal depending on the energy center you’re focusing on and each stone has the purpose of magnifying or balancing the energy center you’re focusing on. In order to choose a healing crystal, you have to look at several stone attributes, including its energetic quality, color, and the intuitive or personal resonance you have with it.
- Root chakra stones: Bloodstone, Tiger’s Eye, Hematite, Fire Agate, Black Tourmaline
- Sacral chakra stones: Citrine, Carnelian, Moonstone, Coral
- Solar Plexus chakra stones: Malachite, Calcite, Citrine, Topaz

There are two main flows of energies contributing to the balance of the chakra system: An upward flow coming from the earth’s magnetic field going up the chakras, and a downward flow coming from a universal, all encompassing energy. These two main currents of energy are said to balance the whole system. Another view emphasizes the upward feeding flow of energy from the root chakra and up.
This dualism in sources of energies is reminiscent of the old philosophical question of “mind over matter” and the origins and causes of the psyche and consciousness. For the sake of clarity, we’ll focus on how the energy moves through the chakras and ways to balance it, instead of debating the philosophical underpinnings of chakra theory.
Chakras are circular (or flower petal shaped) vortexes of energy lying across seven different points on our spinal column and that exist within the etheric body and transmit life force energy to the body. Each chakra governs specific bodily functions of the organs in the body close to the area where they are located.All of the chakras have specific colors that can be used to heal them, as well as specific sound vibrations.Although we normally speak of only seven chakras, the human energy field is made up of thousands of minor chakras in addition to the major seven.The basic human chakra system, as it is commonly accepted, consists of seven chakras stretching from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.The 7 chakras are part of the most commonly known chakra system made of seven energy centers located along the spine and ending in the brain, from the perineum area to the top of the head.The mainstream chakra system is based on a Hindu chakra system that recognizes seven distinct “wheels” or “centers” of energy that are perpetually in motion along the human body’s spinal column.These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Since everything is moving, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow. Think of something as simple as your bathtub drain. If you allow too much hair to go into the drain, the bathtub will back up with water, stagnate and eventually bacteria and mold will grow. So is too with our bodies and the chakras. A bathtub is simple; it’s physical so the fix is easy.
Each possessing its own color and vibrational frequency, these wheels are the catalysts of consciousness and human function. They govern various emotional issues, from our survival instincts and self-esteem to our ability to communicate and experience love.The seven chakras are commonly associated with the following parts of the body:
- The first one to the perineum, in the coccyx area
- The second one to the lower belly, seen a few inches below the navel
- The third one to the solar plexus
- The fourth one to the center of the chest, slightly to the left of the physical heart
- The fifth one to the throat, at the carotid plexus
- The sixth one to the point between the eyebrows or “third eye”
- The seventh one to the top of the cranium
It’s important to remember that the location of the seven chakras varies slightly depending on the traditions or school of thoughts. Some may place the second one slightly to the left of the body, at the level of the spleen, while others will place it lower at the level of the gonads.Even though the 7 chakras are associated with specific parts of the body, they are not “physical” entities per se, but belong to the realm of “subtle energy”. They can be described at the crossroad of the material and the immaterial, the biological and the spiritual, and pertain to the body, mind, and spirit all together.
Root or Base Chakra(Muladhara) – Zodiac signs Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus
The 4th Ray of “Harmony through Conflict” governs the base chakra or root. This chakra symbol represents the most earth-centered energy. It stands for our inherited beliefs through our formative years. Self-preservation, personal survival and our identification with the physical world centers in this bottom most of the main seven chakras.A healthy root chakra connects you with vitality to your family of origin, your immediate society and to the global community. If your 0-7 years were challenging and without love, then this damaged root chakra will function much differently. Issues of survival such as emotional dysfunction, stress, anxiety, and restlessness will plague you.You’ll have fears of letting go, scarcity, poor boundaries, and more. It’s during the 0-7 years that we learn about where we fall in our relationships with siblings, parents, our community, and how we relate to them.
Health issues: Joint pain, lower backache, elimination problems, obesity, constipation, anorexia, and poor immune system function.
Transcendence of unloving imprints in this chakra: “Others show you yourself and what you need to work on within, by their reflection of your own rejected or denied emotions.”
Sacral/Naval Chakra(Svadhisthana) – Zodiac signs Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio
The 7th Ray of “Ceremonial Magic” rules this chakra symbol. The second from the bottom of the seven chakras is about our relationships, creativity, sexuality, control and money.It’s our time of developing individuality and realizing we are a separate entity from our parents and family. Here we learn about the polarity of opposites, male and female, positive and negative. Relationships with the opposite sex are explored here. Blocks in this second of the seven chakras brings lessons on jealousy, betrayal, control and power plays.
Health Issues: Uterine or bladder problems, sexual difficulties, impotence, lack of flexibility, sciatica, lower back pain, and problems with large intestines.
Transcendence of the unloving imprints within this chakra: “emotional addictions are felt, accepted, loved and forgiven.Solar Plexus Chakra(Manipura) – Zodiac signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
The 6th Ray of “Devotion” governs this chakra. This chakra symbol connects us with the energy to take action and is the seat of self-esteem and expressing our personal power. Our relationship to the world around us, and our beliefs about our place within it come from this the third of the seven chakras.Self-honoring starts here. A healthy third chakra honors emotions, warmth, intellectual understanding, and self-confidence. A keen awareness of your personal power comes from this chakra. It is at this chakra that balance becomes possible through harmony between the upper three and lower three chakras.
Blocks in this chakra symbol cause fear of rejection, over sensitivity to criticism, the need to exert power over others, hot temper, demanding and blaming, judgmental attitudes, feelings of lack of recognition, aloofness, fear of something new, low energy, confusion over which direction to go, and low self-esteem. It is here we learn of self-empowerment, integrity and self-respect.
Health Issues: diabetes, hypoglycemia, gallstones, nervousness, low energy, muscle cramps, stomach problems, lumbar spine, liver disorders.
Transcendence of the unloving imprints of this chakra:“Balance between intuition and intellect.”
Hearth Chakra (Anahata) – Zodiac signs Aquarius, Gemini and Libra
The 2nd Ray of “Love-Wisdom” rules this chakra symbol. It’s at this chakra that we start to see the possibilities of the internal and external world…the world of spirit and of form. The heart chakra is the integration point for the seven chakras of the body, because it holds the sacred spark of the divine and the intuition of the Mother.When the heart chakra symbol is open, we are able to forgive, our lungs are clear and our immune systems are healthy. The higher chakras cannot be assessed till we pass through the heart. A heavy heart is one that carries resentment and anger from denied feeling and emotions, as well as guilt.To have a healthy heart, you must allow these suppressed emotions to surface, heal, and fall in love with yourselves. Or, suffer from bitterness and lack of forgiveness. An unhealthy heart chakra causes alone feelings and despair. How you love yourselves, you love others. The heart lessons are self-love and forgiveness of yourself.
Health issues: high blood pressure, breathing difficulties, circulation problems, shortness of breath, chest pains, disorders of the heart, tension between the shoulders.
Transcendence of the unloving imprints of this chakra:“Healing of spirit, emotions, body and heart take precedence over everything.”
Throat Chakra (Vissudha) – No Zodiac signs
The 3rd Ray of “Active intelligence,” is associated with the fifth of the seven chakras. This chakra symbol is all about choice, willpower and the right to speak and be heard. Speaking our peace is our God given right of choice. Having said this, not all we say gives us peace. Some of what we say dis-empowers us…some empowers. What we say is caused by unloving or loving imprints from our past again.It is through this chakra that we manifest what we want in life. A healthy throat chakra makes your voice clear and it resonates with truth. The words are a creative expression of the honestly and trust we feel within.
Blocks in this chakra make it difficult to communicate because we feel suppressed by swallowed emotions and feelings. The voice is weak and your feelings unclear or garbled. Integrity plays a huge part in the proper functioning of the throat chakra. Since it’s between the head and the heart it works to maintain integrity between what we think and what we feel. Self-empowerment is the main lesson of this chakra symbol.
Health issues: fever, ear infections, weariness, thyroid problems, disorders in the throat, ears, voice, neck, cervical spine, hypothalamus and esophagus problems.
Transcendence of the unloving imprints of this chakra:“New found awareness and direction.”
This chakra is governed by the 5th ray of “Concrete Knowledge.” Our intuition and our ability to see with vision comes from here. It’s the center of divine wisdom, the spiritual eye that seeks to see and know the truth in all things. From the sixth of the seven chakra symbols we close our physical eyes and look at the world from all aspects of self. Our intuition becomes our guide.
A healthy third eye gives us the power to perceive every reflection from the outer world, as a direct call for us to accept it as ours, heal and love it.
Blocks in this chakra cause us to become delusional, unimaginative, indifferent and to have poor memories. Worry is a big problem, spaced-out, and poor concentration also plague a person with a sick third eye chakra.
Health issues: headaches, eye problems, pituitary and pineal glands, neurological problems.
Transcendence of the unloving imprints of this chakra: “Balance the physical and the mental.
The 1st Ray of “Will and Power” is associated with this chakra symbol. This chakra is located at the top of the head and spins very quickly as a 1000 petal lotus…our direct connection to God. Guidance comes directly to us from the divine and is received through this chakra.The life force from the creator penetrates into our energy system through the crown, and moves down through the other energy centers to the root chakra. From here we are inspired by God, and filled with Grace, because we have a strong connection to a power greater than ourselves. We live in present time and our spirits live in the now in harmony with our form and Will.
Blocks in this chakra cause confusion, depression, senility, fear of success and lack of inspiration. The flow of spiritual energy is blocked in both directions. When this happens spiritual addiction and over intellectualizing occurs, as well as dissociation with the body.
Healthy Issues: Migraines, brain tumors, coma, amnesia, nervous system and muscular system disorders, mental issues, and skin disorders.
Transcendence of unloving imprints of this chakra: “I and my Father are one in complete harmony with my Will.”A large part of getting to know how to work with your chakras involves chakra balancing. A chakra blockage and imbalance in one or several of 7 chakras can initiate mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual ailments. Regardless of whether you use chakra stones, crystals, reiki, or another form of vibrational healing to restore chakra balance, being well-versed about chakra systems, their function, and the areas they govern can be invaluable.Balancing chakras and healing with the chakra energy system requires a working knowledge of chakras and their functions.
There are the major seven chakras that are within the body and two chakras that are etheric. These etheric chakras are the soul star above, and the earth star below, plus the thymus chakra.
Keeping a chakra open is a bit more of a challenge, but not so difficult when you have awareness. Since mind, body, soul, and spirit are intimately connected, awareness of an imbalance in one area will help bring the others back into balance
Earth chakra meanings relate to the very foundation of your being, within everyday life. This area relates to your energy levels as this area is your anchor into physicality.The earth star chakra (often referred to as one of the subpersonal chakras) is located approximately 12-18 inches below the bottoms of the feet and is connected to the foot chakras. It is usually brown or black in color. Also known as the “super root,” it aligns and connects the body and soul to the powerful energies within the magnetic core of planet earth. Distinct from the root chakra, which is the grounding chakra of the seven-chakra system, the earth star chakra is the grounding point for an individual’s entire extended chakra system and their relationship to the collective planet and the universe. (Imagine the roots of a tree spreading infinitely out under the earth, strongly anchored, with its trunk standing tall and shooting up into the heavens.) This chakra is also believed to hold the keys to past lives, karmic patterns and DNA origins. The earth star chakra is responsible for making us feel deeply connected to our own energies and those of the earth and the universe.Activities such as using the computer, running errands, working, or just going through life at a hectic pace can cause you to become un grounded. Fully activating the earth star chakra allows you to stay fully grounded in spite of these day-to-day tasks. The earth star chakra allows spiritual healers, psychics or anyone who interacts with people to release the excess energies they pick up from others by providing them the ability to draw from the earth’s vibrational energies to clear those unnecessary energies out.When balanced, this chakra connects the etheric body to the physical world, creating security for the soul to fully express itself. Characteristics of an individual with a balanced earth star chakra can include feeling deeply connected to our inherent inner powers, a connection to the collective planet and the universe, seeing the big picture, working for a greater cause, peace of mind and feeling secure. Characteristics of an individual with an unbalanced earth star chakra might include a tendency to lose balance, vertigo, eating disorders, physical problems in the lower body (legs, hips, feet, pelvic region, knees, and ankles) and circulation problems.
It is very important for everyone, but especially spiritual people that this chakra is healthy.Its strong properties keep you grounded and protected, and secures your aura within the physical world.Many of your day to day activities have the potential to un ground you. Using computers for long periods of time, driving around in your vehicle, and having no real contact with the earth, can make you very un grounded .After intense spiritual experiences, you may be unaware that you have a build up of energy in your body and that you need to release this energy.Spiritual work can easily make you un grounded, so afterwards it is best to make sure that you ground yourself quickly. Spiritual grounding is easy and may help those of you who are doing psychic work.For earth star grounding and protection, many of the black gemstones are highly beneficial.The chakra color for the earth star chakra is traditionally black and dark brown, but there are other stones that are helpful for or all of the chakras, including this chakra. All black and brown stones will aid you, but some stones seem to be more popular.The energy of stones of these darker colors, such as black or brown are very grounding, and they are often powerful psychic protection stones.Having one or more of the stones for grounding and protection within your aura at all times is essential.These crystals are easy to obtain as tumble stones, and easy to put one or more of the grounding stones in your pocket every day. Black stones like Black Obsidian Stone, shown in the image at the top of the page, or brown crystals like the Chiastolite Pendant shown here, make up most of the chakra stones. Chiastolite is also known as Cross Stone, and is a popular stone that naturally carries a cross within it. Because of the cross, in the past people believed that it was very powerful and highly protective, which it is.Wear any of the earth star chakra stones as jewelry. These darker crystals are quite attractive and many of the black gemstones are very beautiful.When choosing stones for jewelry, black stones are popular as they can easily be worn with most colors of clothing.Black crystals have an advantage that if you make them into gemstone bead necklaces they can be mixed with most colors.This provides the metaphysical vibration and its advantages, as well as matching your clothing.Black Tourmaline, stone is one of the most effective stones, as it works for both spiritual grounding and protection.If the way you live your life means that you get easily un grounded, make sure you have a few under your pillow at night. While you sleep they will do their work.
One of the most powerful methods to use to ground you is to do a grounding meditation. Hold earth star chakra stones while you do this. The earth chakra stones may also connect you to elemental beings who are in or around your home.While there are some lovely heart chakra stones that will also do this, the earth energy stones also attract them to you. The earth chakra is our connection to Mother Gaia.It is important to feel love and gratitude to her, for all that she gives to you, that comes back to you in equal measures. Use spiritual grounding to connect yourself often with the earth, and you will feel happier and healthier. Freedom of the mind is the greatest form of freedom that exists.
Meditating regularly is highly recommended if you want your spiritual path to move more quickly. Depending on your prior experiences, including those in past lives, this will happen at the pace of your own souls journey.Working at the level of the trans personal chakras, it is very easy to become un grounded. I highly recommend that you ensure that you are grounded, by the use of spiritual grounding techniques, including doing a grounding meditation.In addition, you may prefer to wear some of these stones as crystal jewelry, such as crystal pendants or earrings. Keeping the energy of these stones within your aura may create spiritual growth even more quickly.You should also protect yourself from psychic attack, and use psychic protection crystals to assist you in this.Many of the powerful stones for this chakra, make lovely jewelry and one that is particularly useful to wear as crystal jewelry is purple Charoite. Wearing Charoite Stone jewelry is a powerful asset for both psychic protection and for spiritual grounding, and as well they are beautiful crystals.Wearing Charoite has the added advantage of aiding you to ‘be of service’.High crystal energy stones worn continuously are very powerful, so if you are going to wear or use high vibration crystals, just ensure that you also wear grounding stones as well.Ensure that you keep grounding stones such as Black Tourmaline or Charoite close by, and if possible within your aura. At all times, try to use natural crystals of any crystal if you are able to, rather than manufactured stones.Working with the high vibrations of the trans personal chakras, you will in all probability begin developing psychic abilities. All psychic gifts can be developed, but it may take time and effort.Once you have begun the process of connecting your soul to your conscious mind, you may gain an awareness of your soul’s purpose, and access to karmic memories.
Although certain colors are commonly thought to heal certain chakras, some stones do not fit the pattern. Clear crystals, black, brown and various mixed color crystals have a healing effect on a few different chakras.Chakras from the heart up are very closely associated with the spiritual area within the etheric body, and may be healed by high vibration stones.These stones that have high vibration with strong crystal energy are powerful for making dramatic changes in those chakras. Other stones that heal more than one chakras are those with flecks through them such as agates.The lower chakras such as the base chakra and the earth star chakra, which is below the feet, respond to the black and brown crystals. These darker crystals have a stronger spiritual grounding action. Often stones of a particular color that is a mixture of the two chakra colors, will heal both of the chakras. Light yellow-green stones and crystals are good examples, as they heal both the solar plexus chakra, because of the yellow tones in the stones and the heart chakra, because of the green shades.Spiritual grounding is an important activity for anyone who is working on developing their psychic abilities, as using high crystal energy stones, such as crown chakra stones or soul star chakra stones may make you un grounded.Clear Quartz will work to heal all chakras. Clear quartz clusters have a positive effect on all chakras.
Each individual crystal in the cluster will send out the positive energy to enable it to impact with the entire human energy field.Quartz clusters of any type, are useful pieces to have in a space, as they will send the energy out throughout the room. It’s vibration has the potential to boost any other stones energy so it may assist all chakras.Crystals have a vibration which can be measured, and according to the level of the vibration can be effective healers of individual chakras. The fact that colors also have vibrations, that can be measured, is the reason why particular stones that are specific colors are effective, in different areas of the body.All of the chakras from the heart chakra up will aid your spiritual development.Sometimes when you are crystal shopping you may even be drawn to one special crystal of a specific color. Use your intuition to guide you in choosing an individual stone as it may be your higher self guiding you to what you need.If you pick one up and feel a pleasant sensation in your hand, that is quite normal. If you are not used to crystals it may not be immediately apparent. In that case be led simply by what appeals to you.As color is vibration too, this may be your body’s way of telling you what to use. Buying a chakra kit may be your first step.
Later as you learn more about healing crystals, you will be able to confidently buy individual pieces that appeal to you.Allow yourself to follow your strengthening intuition to guide you and choose what you need to create a positive healing outcome.
