Chakra Stones, Crystal and Colors
Color, crystals and Chakra stones 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) to that Chakra, healing 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 Chakra healing crystals and balancing chakra stones. These Chakra stones are in Chakra co-ordinated colors, which can be used in Chakra gemstone and crystal healing. This results in profound effects 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, can easily and effectively, bring us back to 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 chakras. Chakra stones and crystals can have natural healing frequencies, that resonate with the vibrational frequencies of each chakra. As a result, a Chakra stone or crystal 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 energy. Magnify and channel this energy through your Chakra crystal or stone. As a result, this will activate the healing and balancing properties of your stones or crystals. In turn, this will activate the healing 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 gemstones and crystals in person, look for the ones that attract you with their glow. Finally, feel the energy with your hands, and if you feel a warm or tingling sensation, that’s the stone for you.
How to Use Chakra Stones For Chakra Healing
Once you have chosen your chakra stone, place it over, or near, it’s associated chakra. You can lay down, and place the Chakra stone or crystal over the Chakra. Alternately, you may hold it in your hand, or wear it as jewelry, or you can keep your Chakra stone in your pocket.
Focus on activating your Chakra stones and crystals, by meditating on your intention. In addition, simply relax in the knowing that your chakra stone is there to to balance and harmonize the frequencies of your chakras.
Don’t forget to energetically cleanse your Chakra healing crystals and stones, before and after you use them. You can leave them under water, or bury them under the earth. Alternately, you may leave them in the sun for a day, or under the moon light for a night. Finally, you can smudge them with sage.
