Healing Crystals, How Do They Work?
Healing crystals are gemstones that can be found all over the world and are used for energy healing purposes. Each one is told to have a unique energy imprint that gives it a healing effect. They can help in healing certain physical and emotional problems and serve as energy protectors while enhancing spirituality.
These crystals deal with a person’s individual energy vibration to support and encourage healing and release negative energy. By using these crystals, you can maintain your optimal health, love, joy, peace, and abundance.
Healing crystals work with chakras. Those are energy points in our bodies that these gemstones clear from negativity. The seven major chakras are positioned in the line, running from the top of our head to the base of our spine. Their ‘job’ is to absorb energy from other people, the environment, our emotions and, believe it or not, anything we put in, on, or around our bodies (even foods, and clothes).
When chakras become cloudy and out of balance from negative energy and not spinning in harmony, they have to be cleared. This happens more often than we think. If we fail to clean them, we become anxious, tired, depressed, and ill. We can also have other problems such as financial and relationship issues when our chakras are blurred. Then we should use these healing crystals. They will open and clear chakras and restore their balance. It is advisable to do this weekly, i.e. on a regular basis, to maintain your optimal health and well-being.
Let’s see which are the most popular healing crystals and how they clear our chakras.
For the root chakra
The root chakra is placed near the crotch area. When it is in harmony, it grounds our energy with a connection to Earth, making all the negative energy to flow through us into the Earth. The root chakra is about manifesting our basic needs such as the need for food, money, and shelter. It is bright red colored. This is why red crystals are usually associated with it. Those red crystals are Ruby, Garnet or Red Jasper. Additionally, Black Tourmaline also helps clear and balance this chakra even though it is not red.
For the sacral chakra
The sacral chakra is positioned in our abdomen area. As such, it supports our reproductive organs. It also helps us manifest our intimate connections in love relationships. Its color is gleaming orange, so orange crystals are used for it. Carnelian and Orange Calcite clear the sacral chakra.
For the solar plexus chakra
The solar plexus chakra is placed about two inches above our belly button. It is a clear yellow chakra, so yellow crystals like citrine and gold topaz are used for it. This chakra manifests itself as that ‘gut feeling’ we sometimes have. It is our intuitive guide and affects all organs in that area. It also influences our levels of serotonin and thus contributes to depression. The solar plexus chakra manifests our confidence and helps us control our emotions. When it is not balanced, our emotions express many ups and downs without any particular reason.
For the heart chakra
Our heart chakra is green, so its crystals are Aventurine, Emerald, and Rose Quartz. It is placed in the middle of our chest. The heart chakra is about love, compassion, and empathy and it guards all organs in this area, mostly heart and lungs. When it is clear and balanced, we become trusting, loving and compassionate, i.e. there is no judgmental thinking.
For the throat chakra
The throat chakra is dark blue and positioned in our lower throat area where the collar bones meet. Its crystals are Lapis Lazuli and Turquoise. The throat chakra is about good interpersonal communication and healthy relationships. When there are some health issues in this area, it means that you have some issue with your true feelings— you suppress them without verbalizing your emotional problems. When the throat chakra is clear, we communicate in loving ways and establish healthy relationships in our lives.
For the third eye chakra
The third eye chakra is indigo blue. It is placed between the eyes. Obviously, the third eye chakra is about eyesight, but apart from that, it includes our intuition. When this chakra is clear, it connects us to our higher selves and our spirit. Healing crystals in charge of this chakra are Amethyst and Blue Calcite.
For the crown chakra
Our crown chakra is white or royal purple and is located at the top of our head. It is connected to our spirituality. This Chakra gives us a clear understanding of what is for our highest good in all situations. Its crystals are Selenite or Clear Quartz.
