Color, crystals and gemstones are an easy way to open and balance the Chakras. Each of our Chakras has it’s own unique healing color, which are also the same colors that appear in a rainbow. These pure, spectral colors can be used to energetically influence the senses, balancing the body, mind and soul. Colors, like each of the highly effective Chakra healing sounds, also have frequencies, measured in terahertz, and wavelengths measured in nanometers.
A very powerful Chakra meditation is to “breath in” color; with each breath, imagine breathing in a particular Chakra color, and direct this charged “Prana” (the Life giving Energy of the Universe, which we take in through the air we breath) to that Chakra, infusing it with Life energy.

The 7 Chakras are also connected to the seven layers of the aura: the Etheric, Emotional, Mental, Astral, the Etheric Template, Celestial and Ketheric Template of layers the aura. (Click here to learn more about the different layers of the aura and the Chakras.)
Each Chakra also has healing crystals and balancing chakra stones of co-ordinated Chakra colors, which can be used in gemstone and crystal healing. Chakra stone and color healing has a profound effect physically, emotionally and spiritually; if our Chakras are blocked or drained, then our body, spirit and mind can not function properly. Clearing and balancing our Chakras with Chakra colors, gemstones, crystals and Chakra sounds, our breath, and positive affirmations can easily and effectively, bring us back into a vibrant and healthy energetic balance.
How Do Chakra Healing Stones Work?
The intrinsic properties of chakra stones and crystals can activate and balance the energy of the chakra energy centers. Chakra stones and crystals can have natural healing frequencies, that resonate with the vibrational frequencies of each chakra, and can activate the movement and balancing of the natural, vital energy within you.
To activate your chakra stones and crystals, use your intention and imagination to visualize the energy magnified and channeled through your crystal or stone, to access the healing and balancing properties of your stones or crystals, to activate the vibrational healing frequency of the chakra you wish to balance.
Choosing The Right Chakra Stone or Crystal
A chakra can have several crystals and stones; use your intuition to choose the healing crystals and stones right for you. When choosing stones and crystals in person, look for the ones that attract you with their glow. Feel the energy with your hands, and if you feel a warm or tingling sensation, that’s the stone for you.
How to Use Stones For Chakra Healing
Once you have chosen your chakra stone, place it over, or near, it’s associated chakra. You can lay down, or you may use your crystal or stone by holding it in your hand, or wearing it as jewelry, or you can keep it in your pocket.
Focus on activating your stones, and your chakras, with your intention, by meditating, or simply relax in the knowing that your chakra stone is there to to balance and harmonize the resonant frequency of your chakras.
Don’t forget to energetically cleanse your healing crystals and stones, before and after you use them. You can leave them under water, or leave them in the sun for a day, or under the moon light for a night. You can smudge them with sage, or even bury them in the earth for a period of time, if you feel they need a deeper cleansing.

Clearing & Programming Chakra Crystals & Stones
Chakra crystals are a tool and can be like a storage battery for thought energy. “Clearing” has to do with the energy of the stone or crystal. Chakra crystals can be “programmed” with our thought energy and then act on our subtle chakra energy fields. They also to help to create situations in our lives that will lead us in directions that allow positive growth and healing.
Clearing a Chakra crystal or gem stone is a simple task, and it is a way to insure that there are no left over negative energies from the person who owned it before you. It is a way to personalize your Chakra crystal, and create a new energy bond between you and your new gem stone partner. There are many ways to do this, but this is a simple and effective way – make sure you will not be disturbed. Hold your new crystal under running water, and as the water pours over it, close your eyes and imagine all the negative energies are washed away down the drain and out to the vast ocean to be purified by the cycles of life. You can also leave them in the warm sun, and allow the power of it’s light purify to the crystal with “fire”.
To program your new Chakra crystal, simply hold it in your hand, close your eyes, then in your imagination, create an image of what you want your crystal or gem stone to help you create. Keep your Chakra crystal close to your skin, and when you can not wear it, store it in a special box or bag, which has also been purified and blessed. Fill your crystal companions with love, and you will recieve it back threefold!
