Cleansing Chakras With Crystals


Keeping one's energy system in check is something that we all need to do at least once a day through using a chakra tune-up. As our energetic organs {chakras} work with our physical, mental and emotional bodies, both influencing and being influences by our experiences, our activity and even the nutrition we absorb into the physical body. We can't shut down our chakras anymore than we can shut off our physical organs but like our physical organs, our chakras can experience stress and fatigue which will cause the energies to become depleted over time. If we were exposed to too many lower vibrational frequencies {traumatic events, poor stress management, lack of self-care}, our chakras can even become blocked causing all sorts of symptoms, such as physical pain or feelings of depression. Thankfully, there are many ways to cleanse and revitalise your chakras. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to do this is by using crystals. Crystals affect our chakras by lifting their vibration, clearing them, and causing them to “spin” at an optimal rate.


Crystals possess some of the highest vibrational frequencies on earth, and simply being around crystals and setting your intention to attune to their vibration can have a profound effect on your health and wellbeing. Plus, each crystal has its own unique energetic properties, and can therefore be used strategically to enhance sluggishness or subdue overactivity in the chakras. In this blog post, I am going to show you how to perform a crystal healing session for your chakras. Of course, you can use this template for your clients, or your family and friends as well! Remember, that when it comes to crystal healing, you can get as fancy as you like, but don’t confuse fanciness with effectiveness. The method I am going to present to you is a basic template which I have found to be the best and most convenient way to use crystals for healing purposes.


Selecting the Crystals


Simply select one crystal or stone for each chakra. For a general chakra balancing session, try to pick a stone whose colour matches that of the chakra’s colour.


Examples:


1. Red/Black {Root Chakra} - Red Jasper or Black Tourmaline


2. Orange {Sacral Chakra} - Carnelian or Citrine


3. Yellow {Solar Plexus Chakra} - Yellow Jasper or Citrine


4. Green/Pink {Heart Chakra} - Aventurine or Rose Quartz


5. Blue {Throat Chakra} - Turquoise or Angelite


6. Indigo {3rd Eye Chakra} - Sodalite or Lapis Lazuli


7. Violet/White {Crown Chakra} - Amethyst or Clear Quartz


In a pinch, clear quartz is a great substitute for any stone because it contains all of the colours within it, and it’s a fantastic energetic amplifier and master healer. And yes, even if that means the majority of your stones are clear quartz, that will work perfectly if that’s all you have at hand or can afford to buy at this time. Don’t be afraid to get creative and to listen to your intuition. The stones I’ve presented are simply examples because there are far too many to list for each chakra.


Placing the Crystals


Ideally, you would place the crystal on and around your body, corresponding to the chakra it is going to balance.


1. Off the Body - Between the Inner Thighs, close to the Perineum.


2. Between the Hip Bones - Where the Reproducting Organs are.


3. Solar Plexus Chakra - Between your Lower Ribs and Belly Button.


4. Heart Chakra - At your Sternum {Not to the Left where your Heart is located but directly in the middle of your Chest.


5. Throat Chakra - at the Throat {or off your body beside your Throat, if you find that it falls off}.


6. 3rd Eye Chakra - Between your Eyebrows or in the middle of your Forehead.


7. Crown Chakra - Off the Body, above your Head.


You can also place crystals in the palms of your hands, such as Clear Quartz. A lot of energy enters and leaves the body through the palms and if you are a Reiki or Energy Healing Practitioner your palms would love the crystal tune up! Your hands {and throat} are also major manifestors, which is why writing out your goals is so effective to bringing them to fruition. This can be achieved by reading more about my Gratitude Practice Blog Post.

Also, please try not to stress about placing the crystal in the perfect spot. Your chakras are large spinning wheels of energy and your intentions are what ultimately causes the crystal to do its work. You really cannot go wrong. Have faith and trust in yourself.


Setting the Scene


Whether you are performing a healing session on yourself or on someone else, it is of the utmost importance to first allow yourself to move into a state of deep relaxation. There are many ways in which you can achieve this deep state of calmness including:


1. Playing Soothing, Ambient Music.


2. Diffusing Essential Oils.


3. Keeping Warm with appropriate layers such as Socks, Jumpers {loose fitting} or wearing a Blanket {under the crystals}.


4. Dimming the Lights.


Bring yourself into a “savasana” state by taking some deep breaths {in through the nose and out through the mouth} to begin. Then, if possible, continuing to breathe deeply in and out through the nose. If you are placing the crystals on yourself, allow yourself to calm down first; you don’t want to feel rushed or clumsy through the process. Don’t worry if the crystals “move” or fall off. Again, you cannot do this wrong!


What If a Crystal Falls Off?


If it falls off thats ok. You can choose to either replace it or leave it; if you leave it, it doesn’t meant that the healing is going to “stop”, because energetic healing crosses all boundaries of time and space. Just do what suits you at the time. If it falls off your client, you can simply replace it. If it falls off again despite your efforts, then leave it – trust the process, the energy knows what it is doing.


How Much Time?


Your crystal healing session can last as long as you like. Whether you have 5 minutes or as much as.1 hour, your chakras will be balanced and rejuvenated after your crystal therapy. Don’t force yourself to stay longer than you can manage, as this will only create stress; however, do allow yourself the time and luxury of maintaining a state of deep relaxation and to soak up the healing energy of the crystals.


Cleansing the Crystals


Be sure to cleanse your crystals before and after the healing session. You can do this simply by running them under cool tap water, or by passing them through incense smoke or sage smoke {also known as smudging}. Performing a crystal chakra healing session is an essential skill for all energy healing practitioners, and for anybody who wishes to have optimal health. It’s simple, easy, and will address any issue you’re dealing with.


Regularly balancing your chakras with crystals is a wonderful healing practice, and will definitely enhance your life. Give it a try, you have nothing to loose!
