Healing the Chakras with Crystals

Healing rainbow colored quartz crystal Each chakra centre is associated with various crystals Natural Crystals are energetically vibrating with living energy. Crystals are also transmitters of energy, and each crystal, gemstone and rock has a unique vibration of its own.

Crystals will have an affect on the energy field, or aura, when placed on or near the body. Crystals and minerals can be used for various healing and energizing purposes such as activating, opening and balancing the chakra centres, as well as for removing energetic blocks or clearing/transmuting energy within the chakras, or even within the surrounding environment.

The energetic affect that a particular crystal can have often depends its particular energy, as well as the energy and intention of the individual who is using it. A crystal or rock can also be "charged up" with energy for a specific healing use or intention.

There are several crystals associated with each one of the seven chakras. These crystals are useful for working with the energy of that particular chakra, but also for healing physical and non-physical issues related to it. Each chakra also vibrationally corresponds with one of the seven colors of the visible rainbow spectrum, so crystals and gemstones of the same color as the associated chakra will have more of an affect on the energy.

One way to work with crystal energy is to meditate with them, or use them alongside other spiritual practices (such as affirmations, visualizations, reiki healing, etc,.) They can also be worn on the body in the form of jewelry to receive the associated energy. Crystals may also need to be cleared or charged before using them in order to receive the most benefit. They can be placed in a bowl of salt water or placed in or near direct sunlight for a few hours or overnight.
