Crystals can be used to balance the chakras. Following are three balancing techniques using crystals
that you can do yourself.
You will need seven clear quartz crystals about the same size and weight, either natural or tumbled.
Lie down and place a crystal on each of the seven major chakra centers. If a stone rolls to a different
position three times, leave it where it is. It is likely the body is moving it where it needs to be.
You will find that some of the crystals will feel very heavy, like they are sinking into your skin. Others
will be so light that you aren't sure they are still there. Some crystals will feel very cold, others
extremely warm or even electric. You may also feel like you are floating or receive inner visions of
color or patterns. Each individual is different. Leave the stones in place for at least three or four
minutes. The body will find its own balance.
You will need seven clear quartz crystal points. This time do not place them on the body, rather
place them on the floor or mat next to you pointing inward, toward your body at each chakra center.
Lie still for three or four minutes. This will release stress. Then turn the points outwards to
recharge and energize the chakra centers. Lie still for another three or four minutes.
You will need one red stone, one orange, one yellow, one green, one light blue, one dark blue,
one white, golden or violet, and one dark stone. All stones should be approximately the
same size and weight. This method is the same as the first, except that
colored stones are used instead of clear quartz crystals. The dark stone or smokey quartz should
be placed at the feet for grounding. The remaining stones should be placed at chakra centers according to
color: red on the root chakra center,
orange on the sacral,
yellow on the solar pelix,
green on the heart center,
light blue on the throat,
dark blue on the third eye and
white, golden or violet on the crown center.
These techniques are deceptively simple. You should be grounded and centered before beginning any
crystal healing. Techniques for grounding and centering are located on the chakra meditation
main page. With clear intention to balance and heal your chakra centers, these
techniques do work. They work best if you meditate to clear your intentions prior to working with
the crystals. Crystals and healing stones should also be cleared before working with them. There are several
methods for clearing stones: Placing them in sea salt for 24 hours is one; passing them through
sage with the intention of clearing them is another; and washing them with clear spring water and
leaving them to dry in either sun light or moon light is a third method of clearing them.
