Chakra Stones, Crystal, and Colors

Color, crystals, and Chakra stones are an easy way to balance the energy systems of the Chakras. Each of our Chakras has it’s own unique healing color; these are also the same colors that appear in a rainbow. Furthermore, these pure, spectral colors can be used to influence the senses; color balances the bioenergy of 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.

One very powerful Chakra meditation is to “breath in” color. With each breath, imagine breathing in a specific Chakra color; direct this charged “Prana” (the biofuel of the Universe) to that Chakra, healing it with bioenergy.

Each Chakra also has healing crystals and balancing chakra stones. Likewise, Chakra stones are in co-ordinated Chakra colors, which can be used in gemstone and crystal healing. Using crystals is a biofuel that affects physical, emotional and spiritual. Unfortunately, if our Chakras are blocked or drained, then our body, spirit, and mind can not work properly. Fortunately, clearing our energy systems with Chakra colors, gemstones, crystals and Chakra sounds, can easily bring us back to a vibrant and healthy energy balance.

How Do Chakra Stones Work?

The natural properties of chakra stones and crystals can activate and balance the energy systmes of the chakras. Chakra stones and crystals can have natural healing energy, that resonates with the bioenergy of each chakra. As a result, a Chakra stone or crystal can activate the movement and balancing of the natural, bioenergy 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 knowledge that your chakra stone is there to harmonize the bioenergy of your chakras.

Don’t forget to cleanse the energy of your Chakra healing crystals and stones, before and after you use them. You can leave them underwater, or bury them under the earth, allowing the ecosystem to cleanse them. Alternately, you may leave them in the sun for a day, or under the moonlight for a night. Finally, you can smudge them with sage.

Why “Clear” Chakra Stones & Crystals?

Chakra crystals are a tool and can be 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 therefore act on our subtle energy fields. In addition, they also can help to create situations in our lives, that will lead us to positive growth and healing.

Clearing and Programming Chakra Stones & Crystals

Clearing a Chakra stone or crystal is a simple task; it’s a way to ensure that there are no left-over negative energies, from the person who owned it before you. Also, it’s a way to personalize your Chakra crystal or stone and create a new energy bond between you. Ultimately, there are many ways to do this. This is a simple and effective way; first, make sure you will not be disturbed. Next, hold your new crystal or Chakra stone under running water. 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. Finally, you can also leave your Chakra stones and crystals in the warm sun, and allow the power of its light to purify it with “fire”.

To program your new Chakra stones or crystals, simply hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and in your imagination, create an image of what you want your crystal or gemstone to do for you. For instance, to help you to be a more patient and loving person. Keep your Chakra crystal or stone 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. Finally, fill your crystal companions with love, and you will receive it back threefold!
