Healing Stones and Crystals: Ultimate Guide to Chakra Balancing

Healing Stones and Crystals: Your Ultimate Guide to Chakra Balancing

Sometimes I feel like a deflated air balloon: lack of energy, total apathy, no strength in doing what I have to be doing. Have you ever experienced that? 

I struggle for days and keep reminding myself that better days are still ahead and that there’s always a rainbow after the rain.

But waiting for those mood swings to change and get my energy back is pure torture.

I am naturally leaning toward staying as positive and as productive as I can. So I was pretty happy to discover chakra balancing ideas and the concept of healing stones and crystals.

And although for some skeptics might think of it as a bunch of mumbo jumbo, I found some peace of mind in modern physics. One of my favorite books in the field is “Reality Is Not What It Seems” by Carlo Rovelli. 

And amongst many other things, it explains and proves that everything in the universe is just vibrating particles. All of those particles, including the ones making healing stones, have their energy.

That’s how, even scientifically, I can rationalize to myself why and how healing stones are working.

So, from now on, as soon as this wave of apathy is approaching, I stick to my crystals. Wearing a cute piece of jewelry, combining the most powerful crystals, or a favorite set of stones in my pocket gives me comfort and instant relief.

My chakras are balanced. Blissful energy uninterruptedly travels all over my body. As a result, I feel relaxed, centered and at peace. Click To Tweet

The key for chakra balancing is to open all energy centers of one’s body and many techniques allow accomplishing that. Amongst some of the methods are energy healing by hands, various types of meditation, yoga, pranayama, holistic medicine, Reiki, and, of course, crystal healing.

How exactly do chakra stones work?

Each chakra in your body is associated with a specific area and color. Many healing stones and crystals can be used for cleansing, activating and balancing the energy of the chakras.

The method is based on the fact that chakra stones possess their energy field. Its vibrations are directed and amplified by each crystal, and resonating with the specific energy centers of your body.

The powerful chakra balancing combination may include the following crystals:

  • Amethyst, healing stone that provides purifying and protective energy to help clear, open, and balance the Crown Chakra.
  • Jasper, an ideal tool for overcoming procrastination by revealing the exact reason for avoiding certain tasks and bringing the motivation needed to resolve the issue. And it’s perfect for balancing Solar Plexus Chakra.
  • Lapis Lazuli, powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It is excellent for improving memory. Balancing the Third Eye Chakra.
  • Rock crystal that helps with improving self-respect. This wonderful crystal also possesses the ability to accommodate and incorporating the other crystals’ energy.
  • Agate, which stabilizes the aura, eliminating and transforming negative energies. Use with the 1st through 4th chakras.
  • Tigers Eye, powerful stone that aids harmony and balance, and helps you to release fear and anxiety. It promotes intuition at the solar plexus chakra and enhances psychic ability at the Third Eye chakra.
  • Green Aventurine, comforter and heart healer, used to clean and activate the Heart Chakra for general well-being and emotional calm. So don’t ever underestimate the healing power of natural crystals.


How to pick the right crystal for the right chakra?

Each chakra has its unique healing color. Colors have certain frequencies and wavelengths that match each chakra. Healing stones that match the color of the chakra help it “breathe in” and direct “Prana” or the life-giving energy of the Universe.

Let’s take a closer look at each chakra and its matching stones:  

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra stands for divine insight, and it is located on top of the head. When it’s open, you will feel more flexible and have a more unobstructed view of things as they are. You’ll learn more about the ebb and flow of life and will not be unruffled by setbacks.

Violet chakra stones are the most powerful ones for this chakra, and one such stone is amethyst. It has a calming power and brings in strength, peace, and contentment. You can also use clear quartz.

Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra is between the eyes on the forehead and stands for your power to focus on and see the big picture.

The most efficient stones for this chakra are the ones with an indigo color. You can use lapis, iolite or even amethyst. These stones clarify the third eye, brings in knowledge, wisdom and creative expression. Place the stone between the brows, think of the color and focus on your thoughts.  

Throat Chakra

This chakra represents how you express yourself and relate to others. When it’s open, you may find it very easy to express your thoughts and feelings and be truthful about yourself. A healthy throat chakra also indicates a healthier mouth, gums, teeth, and nasal passages.

Blue is the most powerful color for this chakra, and the stones you can use are blue sapphire, lapis lazuli, and turquoise. Place these stones on your larynx and think of positive speech and words.  

Heart Chakra

The heart chakra represents pure love, and green and pink chakra stones give it the enormous power. Place the stone on your breastbone, think of the colors, let the anger go and open your heart. It will soothe and mend any heartbreak in a natural way.

For green stones, choose malachite, green tourmaline, green moss agate, and emerald. For pink stones, choose rose quartz, ruby or pink tourmaline. Rose quartz nurtures your emotions and heals the heart.

Solar Plexus Chakra

This chakra stands for the intellect and how you see yourself in the world. It’s located in the upper abdomen and is powered by yellow chakra stones. When it’s low in power, you may feel fearful and not confident. On a physical aspect, you may experience problems with digestion.

To empower the solar plexus chakra, place a yellow crystal, for instance, citrine or amber at least 2 inches above your belly button. Amber purifies the mind and spirit, while citrine dissipates negative thoughts and feelings.  

Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is 2 inches below the navel and stands for creative thinking and accepting others. When it’s open, you’ll feel more flexible in both body and mind. You tend to be creative and open to different ideas.

If you want to strengthen the sacral chakra, choose orange stones like carnelian, dark or brown citrine, orange calcite, and tangerine quartz. Place the orange healing stone above the pelvic bone, think of the color and yourself as a creative being.

Root or Base Chakra

This chakra represents passion and the feeling of being grounded. It’s located at the base of the spine, and you feel secure, empowered and full of life when it’s open.

And to keep the root chakra open, choose red chakra stones like red jasper, ruby, garnet, and bloodstone. Place the stone between the thighs, near the groin, and think of the color red. It removes weakness, tiredness and boosts your confidence.

The easiest way to use chakra stones for healing

One of the easiest methods to reap all the benefits from healing crystals is to carry it around as close to your body as possible. It can be as simple as the piece of jewelry or something more advanced as an amulet or a set of stones.

And even though it’s much easier to lose the stone rather than a bracelet, I find that holding or touching the crystal soothes my not only from the energy point of view but also releases the stress and anxiety. It’s sort of forms an anchor – subconsciously you know that touching the crystal will do good to you and it works immediately to bring calm.  

I want to share some of my favorite chakra balancing products. I will be upfront and say that some of the links are affiliate ones, but I only write about things I genuinely like and believe in.

And some of my favorite stores are deserved to be appreciated more because their businesses are built on the desire to serve (me, you, all their customers) and also do some good on the way.
