The Seven Chakras: How Stones and Crystals Can Help Heal Them

Ridding yourself of unnecessary drama and embracing overall wellbeing is priceless and Chakra stones can help. Place a chakra stone on each associated energy center and simply breathe in positivity and exhale negativity. In with the good, out with the bad –, that’s the magic of chakra healing.

Root Chakra

If your root chakra is weak, you may feel like you are unhappy with your body size or shape. You may feel as if you are out of control of your life and you can’t gain control. If your root chakra is overactive, you might find that you often explode angrily at the smallest things.

For the root chakra, we recommend using red and black crystals, such as Red Garnet, Red Jasper, Smoky Quartz, Black Onyx and Hematite, to rebalance your root chakra. Once your root chakra is balanced, you will feel more grounded, solid and confident in yourself.

Sacral Chakra

A low energy flow through your sacral chakra will cause a lack of energy and motivation. You may feel extremely lethargic and even depressed, lacking any joyful moments in your life. If your sacral chakra is overactive, you may be feeling a constant frustration, leading to you breaking down in tears too often.

To align and repair this chakra center, we recommend Orange Calcite, Tiger’s Eye and Sunstone. Once your sacral chakra is back in balance, you will begin to feel excitement, inspiration, energetic bliss and motivation again.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Inactivity of the solar plexus chakra will cause you to feel powerless, especially when you are under pressure. You may often feel butterflies in your stomach, or feel as if you can’t gain control over your life. If your solar plexus chakra is overactive, you will feel the uncontrollable need to control everything about your life; a “control freak.”

For Solar Plexus healing we recommend using Citrine, Yellow Jasper, Rutilated Quartz and Pyrite. Once your solar plexus chakra is balanced, you will begin to feel motivated, focused and confident in your decisions. Your raw gut emotions will thank you! 

Heart Chakra

If you find yourself having problems in your relationships or feeling unattached to the people you love, it may indicate that your heart chakra is weak. If your heart chakra is overactive, you may find yourself becoming too attached to things, resulting in you being overly emotional all the time.

For heart chakra healing try meditating with green and pink stones such as Chrysoprase, Rose Quartz or Rhodonite,  put the stones over your heart to open it up to all types of love. Once your heart chakra becomes realigned, you radiate love of all kinds. Your relationships will begin to strengthen and you will feel hopeful and thankful overall.

Throat Chakra

A weak throat chakra will make you unable to speak your truth and express yourself. When your throat chakra is overactive, you often speak before you think, resulting in unnecessary arguments and hurtful words. When your throat chakra becomes unbalanced, you will find that you cannot articulate your thoughts clearly, leading to miscommunications and frustration.

To heal your throat chakra try meditating with stones like Angelite, Blue Apatite and Aquamarine, make sure to lay them on your throat area. 

Third Eye Chakra

Located just below the crown chakra in between the eyebrows, the third eye or brow energy center is linked with enhanced intuition and creative inspiration. If you feel a lack of clarity in your life or have trouble seeing the truth in yourself or situations, it’s a sign that you need a third eye chakra healing and cleansing.

For third eye healing and opening use indigo colored gemstones such as Lapis Lazuli, and Fluorite this will help reawaken inner wisdom, which also will open the door to self-knowledge. 

Crown Chakra

An inability to think clearly when you are under stress means that your crown chakra is unbalanced. You may feel like you are going about life without having a specific purpose or path, leaving you feeling lost. Situated at the top of the head, the Crown chakra is the pathway to all other chakras, which is why energy healers typically start with a crown chakra cleanse before any therapeutic healing session.

To start healing and alignment of your crown chakra try using clear crystals such as Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Selenite and Moonstone.

Amethyst crystals are excellent crown chakra activators. These stones can be placed on the forehead to encourage a feeling of transcendence and bliss from negative and self-defeating thoughts.
