I have spoken previously of the seven main Chakras. They run along the centre line of your back, from the base of your spine to the top of your head, they are as follows
- First – Root: Coloured Red
Crystals: Bloodstone, Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz.
- Second – Sacral: Coloured Orange
Crystals: Citrine, Amber, Orange Carnelian.
- Third – Solar Plexus: Coloured Yellow
Crystals: Topaz, Tigers Eye, Peridot.
- Fourth – Heart: Coloured Green
Crystals: Malachite, Jade, Amazonite.
- Fifth – Throat: Coloured Blue
Crystals: Blue Lace Agate, Turquoise, Kyanite.
- Sixth – Brow: Coloured Indigo
Crystals: Moonstone, Fluorite, Lapis Lazuli.
- Seventh – Crown: Coloured Violet
Crystals: Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Purple Agate
Each of these chakras vibrate and rotate at different speeds and frequencies, when these chakras become unbalanced, misaligned or slow down it can affect the life force of an individual.
People may be affected in different ways. Physically, normal body functions may be affected by illness and disease, an individual may also become tired, depressed and not feel themselves.
The normal thinking of a person may also become affected resulting in them becoming negative, showing unnecessary fear and doubt and shortened patience (to name a few).
It is very important to keep a stable balance with the chakras, too little has the above results but opening your chakras too much can result in a person burning out or short circuiting due to the rush of universal energy that will flow through your chakras. The correct balance will bring a sense of well being, promote health and enhance a positive attitude towards life.
Crystals can be used to re-balance the chakric centres, they react to electricity (which courses through our bodies) and when placed or used within our auric field, the electrical vibrations of the stones will then help stimulate, harmonise and rebalance the energies.
There is a scientific theory called the ‘Piezoelectric Effect’ which states “The generation of an electric charge in certain non-conducting materials, such as quartz crystals and ceramics, when they are subjected to mechanical stress (such as pressure or vibration), or the generation of vibrations in such materials when they are subjected to an electric field.”
This leans positively towards the workings and support of crystals in healing.
There are many ways to use crystals, for example
- Worn on the body as jewellery or carried as a tumblestone.
- Placing under the pillow when sleeping.
- During meditation.
- Placed in the home or workplace.
- In Chakra Healing by laying on the body.
Treating your crystals with respect and with regular cleansing/charging is a necessity. Take your time with them and learn more about yourself whilst working with natures gems, but most of all enjoy your healing.
Note: Crystals are used as spiritual supports and normal healthcare and medical advice should still be adhered to.
