Chakra Healing Crystal Lesson # 1 – The Color of Each Chakra & Its Respective Stones
The 7 main Chakras in every human body are known as the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakras. The first Chakra starts from the base of the spine upwards towards the crown of your head where the 7th Chakra is at.
“The respective Crystals for each Chakra should match the color of the Chakra.”
Various colors of the crystals have their own different set of frequencies and wavelengths; they therefore produce vibrations unique to their specific hues. As such, every Chakra point must have the same corresponding frequency and wavelength as the color of the stone to prompt effective healing and an overall harmonious flow of energy in your Chakra system.
This results in a balance in your Chakra, providing your body with advantages such as the overall feeling of well-being, increased vitality, rejuvenation and a more relaxed and calm demeanor.
The stress and frustrations of daily life can be draining and thus taking a toll on your Chakras, causing fluctuations in your Chakra energies which disrupt the harmonious flow required for your well-being.
An under active Chakra results in various issues, be it physical, emotional or spiritual. This is where the Chakra Healing stones come into play. These sets of Crystals, when used properly, can be used to alleviate these ailments and restore your body back to a healthy state. And even bring you to a state of peace. Both emotionally and spiritually.
Root Chakra – Red Colored Stones
The first Chakras, which is also known as the Root Chakra, can be located at the base of the spine and it is best represented by the color red. The Root Chakra, being the point where your energy is mustered, can be identified as under active when you experience problems such a depression, anxiety, low blood pressure or digestive issues. As expected, the suggested Crystals for the Root Chakra are preferably those that comes in Red.
Crystals such as the Rhodochrosite, help create strength and courage. Another option is the Bloodstone, Dark Green in hue with red spots, which boots self-esteem and repels negativity. Both of these crystals are often used for cleansing and activation of the Root Chakra.
Sacral Chakra – Orange Colored Stones
The second Chakra, also known as the Sacral Chakra, is located at the lower abdomen area. The Sacral Chakra, when under active, will arise to problems such as a feeling of isolation, lack of emotions and a block in creativity, closing the doors of opportunities.
To alleviate these issues, crystals such as the Carnelian, a orange colored Crystals is used for its amplifying properties. Moonstones that are slightly yellow or gold are unique due to their connection to the moon which makes them excellent in activating your Sacral Chakra.
Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow Colored Stones
Next, the Solar Plexus Chakra which is the third Chakra located along the spine. It can be located behind the belly button and this energy wheel is best represented by the color yellow. An under active Solar Plexus Chakra can be recognised when one has low energy, lack of confidence and often lethargic or aggressive.
Crystals such as Yellow Aventurine, can provide mental rejuvenation and renewed confidence. While Yellow Tourmaline Crystals are effective in detoxifying your body and thus aiding in the balance of your Solar Plexus Chakra.
Heart Chakra – Pink & Green Colored Stones
The fourth Chakra which is also known as the Heart Chakra and it is located at the center of the chest. The colors that best represents the Heart Chakra are pink or green. The Heart Chakra, when under active, causes heart conditions, lung issues and also problems concerning blood circulation.
Popular stones used to counter these problems are the Rose Quartz, a pinkish hued crystal, which directly targets alleviating heart conditions and also allow better sleep.
The Calcite works well too by absorbing the negative energies and also improving your body’s immune system. These stones allow a overall calmer emotions and increased vitality.
Throat Chakra – Blue Colored Stones
The fifth Chakra would be the Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra is slightly above the collar bone where the throat is located at. The color that best represents this Chakra is blue. The Throat Chakra is known to be under active when one is faced with mouth or throat illnesses such as thyroid. It also hinders ones ability in decision making and suppresses your sense of empathy.
In cases as such, stones such as the Blue Laced Agate, is often used as a way to soothe these illnesses and also improves your communication ability. The Aquamarine, light green-blue in colour, gives you a higher tolerance level, removes doubts and fears and brings out compassion.
Third Eye Chakra – Purple Colored Stones
Next in line would be the Third Eye Chakra which is the sixth Chakra amongst the 7 main Chakras. This energy wheel is located slightly above and between the eye brows. Purple connects the best with this Chakra. The under active Third Eye Chakra will cause frequent headaches and migraines or difficulty in your concentration. Sinus problems are also associated with the under active Third Eye Chakra.
These conditions can be remedied with stones like Amethyst, a purple crystal that gives wisdom and protection from harmful and negative forces. The Moldavite Crystal, dark green in color, improves ones ability to remember dreams and the clarity of the dream itself. It also clears negativity, making it popular in balancing the Third Eye Chakra.
Crown Chakra – White & Violet Colored Stones
Lastly, let’s not forget the Crown Chakra. This is the 7th main Chakra in the human body. It lies at the top of the head and it connects with the colors white and violet. The Crown Chakra, when under active will result in close mindedness and an cynicism towards sacred beliefs.
These may be re-balanced using Clear Quartz which gives better spiritual awareness and amplifies your psychic energy. It is also effective is promoting hair and fingernail growth. Diamonds, while being a rarer stone, is effective in elevating emotional burdens and allows you to tap into divine energies, giving you vision of truth and clarity.
Chakra Healing Crystal Set – For Ease & Convenience
Instead of buying each and every individual Crystal for Chakra Healing, why not get a Chakra Healing Crystal Set? It makes more sense because it is cheaper! The only downside is that you cant do your own customization. Personally I got my own Chakra Healing Crystal set from ExquisiteCrystals, you can check it out over HERE. I fully support them because of their service, affordability and the quality of their Crystals.
What is a Chakra Healing Crystal Set & Whats Their Role?
Chakra Healing Crystal set are a set of different colored healing Crystals with each Crystal targeted at healing a specific Chakra point. Most Chakra Crystal sets have 7 stones intended balancing 7 main Chakra points.
These crystals are usually placed around your own personal space. It could be almost anywhere from places such as your living room to right beside your pillow while you are taking a rest. It is also possible to wear multiple Crystals as a form of jewelry such as necklaces or rings.
However, a more effective method of “Laying on of Crystals” is commonly used by Crystal Healers. This is where the Chakra Crystals are placed on the body’s energy centers (while lying down of course!) for a period of time. This encourages the healing of that specific Chakra point.
For a well balanced Chakra flow, the Crystals are placed, starting from the Root Chakra, and subsequently moving upwards, ending at the Crown Chakra. The pointed tips of the Crystal should be directed towards the crown while lying down.
This allows the energy to be directed throughout the body starting from the bottom, upwards towards your head.
Chakra Healing Crystal Lesson # 2 – Unblock Your Chakras
- Step-by-step method of opening Chakras
- Which Chakra Healing Crystal to use for each respective Chakras (provide 2-3 crystals for the balancing of each Chakra)
In order to obtain a strong and stable foundation, it is recommended that the unblocking of the Chakras start from the Root Chakra. Minimal meditation is required in this process to unblock your Chakras.
To begin, rinse the Chakra Healing Crystal you are using under cool water. Then, lay down with the front side of your body facing upwards. Ensure that you are in a comfortable position where the necessary places like your head or back are well cushioned or supported.
Close your eyes and allow your body and mind to enter an undisturbed area. Be conscious of your environment and how you are feeling during the course of your meditation. If you start to lose your direction during your meditation, it is okay to open your eyes and reconnect your bodily sensations to your environment again.
Always manifest positive thinking during the unblocking session.
Step 1: Unblocking The Root Chakra
The Rhodochrosite Crystal can be used for the process of unblocking your Root Chakra. Shift the focal point of your body to the area around the lowest part of your spine where the crystal is located.
Place focus on Root Chakra, feel and imagine a bright red light emitting out of the Crystal and ask yourself how you would like it to affect your life. Contract your perineum as you inhale and relax it as you exhale. You could also imagine a closed red flower at the Root Chakra and slowly allow it to bloom according to the pace of your meditation.
Step2: Unblocking The Sacral Chakra
Place the Carnelian Crystal at the area below your navel where your lower abdomen is. Other alternatives to the Carnelian Crystal would be the Orange Sunstone or the Tiger’s Eye crystal.
Place focus on the Sacral Chakra and imagine a bright Orange light shine through the Crystal. Feel it’s energy bringing your Sacral Chakra back to balance. Form your hands into the shape of a circle and place it in a relaxed position on your body. Allow your positive thoughts to flow until your Sacral Chakra being cleansed of the blockage.
Step 3: Unblocking The Solar Plexus Chakra
Place a Yellow Aventurine Crystal slightly above your belly button at your Solar Plexus Chakra. Alternative to the Yellow Aventurine, you can use Yellow Opal or Yellow Moonstone. Bring your palms together with your thumbs overlapping each other. While resting them on your body in a relaxed position.
Place focus on the Solar Plexus Chakra, asking yourself how you would like it to affect your life. Feel the vibrational energy from the Crystal seep into your under active Solar Plexus Chakra.
Step 4: Unblocking The Heart Chakra
At the Heart Chakra, located in the middle of your chest, place a Rose Quartz. Other stones such as the Moldavite or Danburite can be used too depending on your preference.
Place both your hands beside you while adopting a Gyan Mudra. (Can be done by allowing your index finger and thumb to meet.)
Step 5: Unblocking the Throat Chakra
At the Throat Chakra, located above your collar bone and below your chin, place a Blue Laced Agate. You may use also use the Kyanite or Tanzanite Crystal instead. Interlock your fingers while your thumb press against each other and rest it comfortably on our body.
Step 6: Unblocking The Third Eye Chakra
At the Third Eye Chakra, place a Sodalite Crystal between and slightly above your eyebrows. A Lapis Lazuli or Blue Halite Crystal can be used too. Roll your fingers towards your palm and tuck your thumb inwards.
Allow the area between the knuckles and mid-fingers to touch. Lay it comfortably on your body until you feel unblocked.
Step 7: Unblocking The Crown Chakra
As the energy wheel for the Crown Chakra is located at the top of your head, place an Amethyst slightly above the top of your head. However, ensure a strong Root Chakra foundation before proceeding. Other Crystals that you can use are the Clear Quartz and Petalite.
Interlock your fingers while allowing your pinky fingers to standout and meet. Organize your thoughts and focus on allowing a bright white light shine through the top of your head.
Note: Noticed that there wasn’t any guidelines on the time required for unblocking each and every Chakra? The reason is simple, each and everyone of us is unique. We are our own barometer. You’ll know when you’re ready to move to the next Chakra.
Once you have completed your session of unblocking your Chakras, rinse your crystals in cool water or smudge them. Then, place them at an area with ample sunlight/moonlight to allow them to re-charge for your next Chakra unblocking session. I have also written an article on various methods to cleanse your Crystals, if you would like to read more, do read it HERE.
You do not have to attempt step 1 to 7 in one sitting. You may progressively work towards step 7 over a period of time depending on your meditation abilities.
Alternatively, you may also place all the crystals or gemstones before beginning and follow the sequence respectively. If you are going for a longer session, remember to pause and rehydrate. When all the Chakras are unblocked, the spiritual power that flows through the Chakras would level out and become balanced.
