Most people understand that ancient people used crystals for healing, magic, and to gain spiritual powers. Stones have been a part of spirituality and healing for thousands of years. The Bible lists 12 stones that were to be a part of the breastplate for the Levite priests when they were performing certain duties.
No modern, scientific evidence exists that crystals heal and they aren’t a type of medicine. However, more people are looking at stones and certain metals to see if they have benefits.
Why Crystals Are Considered Important?
Those who investigate life science as well as those who look into spirituality believe in vibrational energy. This energy is in everything and affects us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Crystals have a unique vibrational energy that can be transmitted to you.
What Are Chakras?
Chakras are seven points of energy up and down your spine that controls different aspects of energy. Each chakra is linked to a part of the body as well as a part of your life. Those who understand chakras believe that you can clear chakras and use them to balance your physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being.
How To Combine Healing Stones with Charkas?
The idea is to wear certain stones over certain chakra locations. You don’t have to wear outlandish clothing or jewelry to show the world what you are doing. You can do this discretely without anyone knowing. Here are some suggestions:
- Wear the stones as jewelry
- Keep them in a pocket.
- Put them as accents to a hairstyle.
- Wear them in a belt.
Additionally, you can use healing stones at home to help cleanse and activate chakras. You can do this by adding them to bathwater, meditating with them, or sleeping with a stone under your pillow.
Gemstones that Work Best With Certain Chakras
Some crystals and gems work better than others for chakras. Here is a list of the best for each chakra:
- Root Chakra
This is located at your spine’s base and provides you foundation. Since the colors for it are red and black, the gems that work best are garnet, black onyx, ruby, and black tourmaline.
- Sacral Chakra
This is located in the lower abdomen and signifies relationships, happiness, pleasure, and creativity. The color is orange so the gems that work best are fire opal, moonstone, carnelian, and citrine.
- Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra, located in the upper abdomen, puts us in control of our actions and helps our confidence. Yellow is the color associated with it so the stones that work best are yellow jasper, amber, and golden topaz.
- Heart Chakra
This, naturally, is located in the chest’s center just above the heart. It is there to help us see love, joy, and compassion. The colors associated with it are, surprisingly, green and pink. The stones that are best used with this chakra are jade, peridot, rose quartz, and green aventurine.
- Throat Chakra
This chakra is in the throat and is associated with expression and communication. The color associated with it is blue and the gems best for it are turquoise, lapis lazuli, sodalite, and aquamarine.
- Third Eye Chakra
This is noted as the visionary chakra because it helps us see the bigger picture. It is located between our eyes in our forehead. The color associated with it is indigo and the gems best for it are amethyst, blue chalcedony, and purple fluorite.
- Crown Chakra
This final chakra, located on top of the head, represents spirituality and visions. The colors associated with it are white and violent. The stones associated with it are clear quartz, labradorite, amethyst, and diamond.
Now that you know which stones are best for each of the chakras, you can use them to help you develop each so that you are balanced and free of negative energies.
