The heart chakra is the energy center that balances out the rest of our energy body, namely the upper three chakras and the lower three chakras. When we have an imbalance in our heart center one of two things occur: we find ourselves overly emotional and we find it difficult to clearly think things through. The opposite thing that can happen is we become overly logical, and lack a sense of emotional connection and empathy related to our situations.
When an individual is overly emotional and not thinking things through, most of their energy is concentrated in the lower three chakras. This energy is intensified and can often become stuck, because the energy is not able to flow through the heart center.

The lower three chakras govern our ability to be grounded, our intimate relationships, as well as our personal power. So, when all of our energy is in these three chakras we often feel off-balance, emotionally unstable, and we feel as though we lack willpower or personal power. If the energy is unable to be released we do not have access to the upper three chakras, and we cannot communicate effectively, we don’t think things through, and we often feel as though the world is against us.
If our energy is stuck in the upper three chakras we often rely too much on reason which is the main function of the Third Eye Chakra. In this state we can often communicate effectively, as long as that communication is not vulnerable, because the throat chakra has too much energy built up. Individuals with this blockage tend to be over achievers, because there is too much energy in their crown chakra. They manifest what they think they want, but they often leave a trail of wounded people in their wake.
To effectively deal with such heart center issues, I like to use five stones that have energetic properties known to aid in healing and strengthening our emotional well-being. The power of these crystal are due to their resonant energy. Resonant energy is the vibrational quality of the things around us. Everything carries an energy signature, and the reason why crystals are quite popular in metaphysical practices is because the energy these crystals resonate is often at a higher frequency compared to other tools and esoteric objects. This is due to their unique matrixes and the minerals within each crystal.
These “heart healing crystals” are by no means the only stones that bring about balance to our emotional being; other practitioners may prefer to use other options.
Rose quartz is a pink colored stone and is known as the “love stone.” It’s subtle energy moves us into a state of love. This is especially important when healing heart issues, because often one of the biggest challenges to healing the heart is the inability of the wounded person to love themselves. When we love ourselves, healing naturally occurs. I recommend carrying a piece of rose quartz with you, or finding a nice piece of jewelry with a rose quartz setting.

Seraphinite is a beautiful green crystal. The matrix structure is banded with many different varieties of green, white, and silver colors. Green crystals are powerful in heart healing, because the heart chakra is represented by the color green.
Seraphinite is also associated with angelic energy. Angels are the divine messengers of love, and their energy naturally promotes heart center healing.
This crystal is also associated with the feminine attributes of God, and are good for healing emotional issues related to parents. The best way to use this crystal is in a ritual setting, such as during meditation times, because it works best with focused intention.
The color green is connected to the heart chakra. In folk lore this stone has been known to bring healing both to the physical heart, as well as the emotional body.
This crystal is often used for prosperity, because many times our heart imbalance can be associated with our feelings of lack, or fears of lack, so this is a great one to heal those types of emotions.
I recommend wearing this crystal. It is especially useful if you find it set in a pendant and you can wear it around your neck.
Okay, so another green crystal. It is possible that mentioning how wonderful green crystals are for the heart chakra may be becoming redundant, but again this is one of the primary reasons this crystal brings heart healing.
This crystal holds a lot of earth energy, and is very useful for individuals that feel like their emotions are shaky due to its grounding quality.
Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he/she has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more — more unseen forms become manifest to her ~ Jalal-Uddin Rumi
This is also a great crystal for highly sensitive individuals. In folk traditions it is often used for sensitivities to toxicity within environments. Since this crystal ground the individual using it, it is a wonderful stone to use if your heart imbalances cause anger issues. If you find that you have a short fuse, I recommend carrying a piece of adventurine around in your pocket.
This is a red and green crystal, and in some healing traditions individuals believed that the red within the blood stone represented the blood of Christ and the healing of Christ.
This crystal has very high vibrations, and is especially good for individuals that lack hope for the future, or feel sad often. This is also a great crystal for individuals that feel confused about life, because like the adventurine it has a very grounding quality.
I highly recommend using this crystal alongside Rose Quartz, because it is a very uplifting crystal, and it works well with the rose quartz energy. It can be worn, but I have found that I prefer using it more during intentional meditation and during Reiki sessions.
When it comes to using crystals, I always recommend that you find crystals that resonate with you personally. Not every crystal is going to respond the same way to the every individual, which is why it is important to follow your instinct when developing a collection of crystals. Pick them up, and see if they feel right in your hand. If it is a piece of jewelry, try it on before you buy it, or if you are purchasing it online visualize yourself wearing the piece. This will increase both the effectiveness of the metaphysical properties as well as the overall enjoyment of using crystals as a part of your evolutionary growth.
