The Right Crystals For the ChakrasNovember 2, 2018
Just like everything around you, your body is made up of energy. The energy needed to maintain the balance between your body, mind, and spirit are focused in seven different areas on the body and are called the chakras. There is the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakra starting from your feet and ascending to the top of your head. Ensuring that each chakra is healthy will lead to overall harmony in your body, mind, and spirit. The following is a list of crystals that complement particular chakras and will unblock or nurture the energy within each chakra.
The Root Chakra: Agate, Tiger’s Eye, and Hematite
Located near the root of the spine and climbing up to the third vertebrae, the root chakra gives out energy that brings a sense of security, safety, and self-preservation. Crystals such as agate, tiger’s eye, and hematite will help you feel more grounded and will also help align your ethereal spirit to your physical body. A healthy root chakra will make you feel more connected to your human experience on Earth.
The Sacral Chakra: Carnelian, Coral, and Moonstone
The sacral chakra is located at your belly button, through your center. A healthy and balanced sacral chakra will help you source feelings of wellness and abundance from pleasurable activities. Carnelian, coral, and Moonstone will promote passionate energy that keeps itself in check. With a healthy sacral chakra, expect to experience the pleasure of our earthly experiences without overdoing them.
The Solar Plexus Chakra: Orange Calcite, Malachite, Topaz
The solar plexus is centered around your belly button, traveling up to your breastbone. It is home to the energy that defines your identity and intuitive nature. With an unbalanced solar plexus chakra, you might experience a lack of self-awareness, indecisiveness, and insecurity. Orange calcite, malachite, and topaz work to enhance a strong sense of self and confidence to overcome social phobias.
The Heart Chakra: Jade, Rose Quartz, Green Tourmaline
The name says it all—located over the heart; the heart chakra is home to how we love others and ourselves. Having an overactive heart chakra might lead to a loss of personal boundaries and emotional safety. Jade, rose quartz, and green tourmaline will help you disengage from obsessive behaviors and codependencies, so you love smarter and stronger.
The Throat Chakra: Aquamarine, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise
The throat chakra radiates around your throat, up to the center of your eyes. With a healthy and balanced throat chakra, you will be able to literally and figuratively communicate effectively and with grace. An overactive throat chakra can lead to excessive talking—to the point of disrespecting others. Aquamarine, lapis lazuli and turquoise will help you manage your voice whether it be stepping down to allow others to speak, or to step it up to speak your truth.
The Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst, Black Obsidian, Purple Fluorite
Your third eye is located between your eyebrows, down to your mouth, and up to the top of your head. This chakra is responsible for bridging the gap between your physical and material experiences. Amethyst, black obsidian, and purple fluorite all clear out foggy energy in the brain to sharpen the senses and your ability to receive and interpret ethereal messages.
The Crown Chakra: Amethyst, Diamond, Quartz
Your crown chakra is not exactly on your body, but just above it. The energy of this chakra radiates outward into the universe around you. This chakra is hard to conquer or to realize wholly. Since it has to do with infinite universal energy, it is very powerful. To connect more with this chakra, amethyst, diamond, and quartz lend aid to harmonizing all chakras that will only benefit your connection to the outside universe. They cleanse and awaken your energy to feel spiritually enlightened.
Keeping your chakras healthy is a life-long journey that is better maintained over time rather than working on them quickly and intensively. Check in on your overall chakra health regularly for the best results with an open heart, mind, and your crystals.
