Chakra Balancing Using Crystals


There are several ways to balance out the chakras, but I have to say one of my favorite ways, for both myself and my clients, is to use crystals.

To use crystals, you may want to choose colors that correspond to each chakra, though I want to add here that many times Iíve been intuitively drawn to use a crystal that is not a color match to that particular chakra; like green quartz at my throat chakra. So let yourself intuitively choose the crystals for each chakra. After youíve gathered your crystals together, pick a spot where you can lie down uninterrupted for 15 to 20 minutes or so.

Lay a grounding stone just below your feet, (you may also choose to hold a grounding stone in each hand after youíve placed all the crystals). Then lie each crystal on itís corresponding chakra. For your Crown chakra, youíll probably want to lay the crystal just above your head, and then crystal for the Soul Star just a couple of inches above that.

After you have the crystals placed, close your eyes, and inhale to a count of four, hold your breath to the count of four, and exhale to a count of eight. Do this process four times. Breathe normally for a few minutes. Then focus on your root chakra, and repeat this breathing pattern one time, while visualizing your chakra clear and bright. Repeat this process for the rest of your chakras.

The Soul Star chakra doesnít really need to ever be cleared, but you can still focus on itís radiance and color, and see it shining supportively down through your Crown chakra.

After youíve finished this process, relax for a few moments, and then remove the crystals. You may choose to sit a while holding your grounding stone, while you drink a glass of water. You may feel light, and not quite back in your body for a while, so take care to be gentle and loving with yourself until you feel good and grounded again.

And here are some ideas on stones to get you started, but remember, your intuition will always trump what someone tells you you should be using.
