Chakra Stones and Crystals
The word chakra means ‘spinning wheel of light’ in Sanskirt. Think of little whirlwinds that come from your spine and swirl around in front of, behind and around your body. These vortices regulate our conscious and unconscious realities. Chakras convert fast or spiritual energy into slow or sensory energy and vice-versa.
Because each Chakra runs on a different frequency or vibratory level, each is associated with a different stones or crystals and color. There are several stones and crystals for each Chakra to choose from which help clear blockages and realign your energy.
The key is to choose a set you are attracted to personally that resonates with you.
Making the time and caring to cleanse your stones and crystals is extremely important.
How to choose your set
Choosing your set of Chakra stones and crystals that will journey with you, give and release energy from you is personal. For a visual or Clairvoyance person, color and shape is important. To strong sensory or Clairsentience individuals, shape, texture and polishing of a stone or crystal are important. The key is to choose a set you are attracted to personally that resonates with you.
Clearing and charging
Making the time and caring to cleanse your stones and crystals is extremely important. In addition to their visual aspect, crystals and stones absorb and transmit energy so leaving them without regular cleansing allows them to become saturated and unable to effectively do their work.
Once cleansed, it is important to charge them for your use. One of the ways you can do this is to find a quiet place for 5 to 15 minutes and hold the crystals and stones in your enclosed hands. Focus your energy on your hands saying a prayer or sending love to your new set. Be sure to close your eyes and use your breath to help you relax.
A guided meditation with your stones and crystals is a great way to balance your Chakras and recharge your energy after a challenging day. You can do this by holding them in your hand, placing them on your body at your Chakra points or visually focusing on the beauty of them with deep, clearing breaths.
Many people carry their Chakra stones and crystals in their pockets. Throughout the day their sets or individual stones bring them peace, calm and reassurance. Make sure to remove them from your pockets before doing laundry!
These wonderful gifts from Mother Earth help us face life’s challenges strong, balanced and recharged.
