The power of crystals 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.
Using crystals for energy healing is quite simple. You can carry the crystals around with you, wear them as jewelry, and also use them in your spiritual practices such as meditation. The best way to use the crystals is to set your intention, and then visualize the energy coming into alignment through the aid of the crystal.
The energy of life entering and leaving your body flows evenly throughout the universe. With that current, the mind of the cosmos communicates with all things ~ Ilchi Lee
Below is a list of several crystals that can bring into balance your energy system. In my personal life and practice, these are the crystals that I use when working with particular areas of the chakra system.
First Chakra: The Base or Root Chakra
This energy body is associated with our feelings of being grounded and connected to our physical reality. When the root chakra is out of alignment we can feel disconnected to our present circumstances, feel as though the rug has been pulled out from under us, and we feel unsteady about the future. It is associated with the color red, so red crystals work best for bringing this chakra into balance. Some crystals and stones that work well for this chakra are: rose quartz, garnet, fire opal, ruby, red coral, and aragonite.
Second Chakra: The Sacral Chakra
This energy center is associated with our sexuality, intimate relationships, and also relationship with money. When this energy body is out of alignment one experiences our most intimate relationships suffer, we find it difficult to have a healthy sexual expression, and our we are anxious and have difficulty managing our financial well being. The sacral chakra is associated with the color orange, so orange crystals often resonate well and bring this chakra into alignment. The best crystals and stones to use for this energy body are: amber, orange calcite, peach quartz, citrine, and tigers eye.
Third Chakra: The Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is associated with our will power and also our personal power. When it is out of alignment we are prone to addictive behaviors, find it difficult to feel powerful in our circumstances, and struggle with being honest and direct related to our circumstances. The solar plexus chakra is associated with the color yellow, so yellow crystals work well with bringing this chakra into alignment. Crystals that work well with this energy body are: citrine, prehnite, lemon quartz, topaz, amber (light colored) and tigers eye.
The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind ~ Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus
Fourth Chakra: Heart Chakra
The heart chakra balances our upper three and lower three chakras. When this chakra is out of alignment we often tend to favor one or the other energy three energy bodies. For men energy often gets stuck in the upper three chakras. They can turn into laser beams with logic, and are often overly confident externally, but do not have much of an internal life. They disconnect from their empathic side, and they can often make decisions that hurt others without feelings of remorse. Women tend to have their energy get stuck in the lower three chakras. They can become overly emotional, they can become reliant on others for their state of happiness (especially in romantic connections), and it is difficult to make well thought out and planned decisions.
Please understand that this is just a common occurrence, but by no means indicates that every woman will detach from logic, nor does it mean that every man will relinquish emotional connection. From my practice this just seems to be a common thread with the heart chakra related to gender. The heart chakra is associated with the color green, and crystals that bring this energy body into alignment are: rose quartz (this is a pink stone, but certainly increases the frequencies of love), jade, emerald, malachite, adventurine, moss agate, and seraphinite.
Fifth Chakra: Throat Chakra
This energy center is associated with our ability to effectively communicate ourselves, and also understand the communication of others. When the throat chakra is out of alignment we find it difficult to speak our truth. We often experience misunderstandings related to the way we have communicated something or the way someone is attempting to communicate with us. The throat chakra is associated with the color blue, so blue crystals work well in bringing this chakra into alignment. Some crystals that work well for bringing the throat chakra into alignment are: blue kyanite, amazonite, sodalite, tazanite, blue tourmaline, and turquoise.
Sixth Chakra: The Third Eye Chakra
This chakra is one of the best known chakras within the new age community, and has a lot of association with intuitive ability. It is true that this particular chakra plays a strong role in one’s intuitive strengths, however the third eye chakra also plays a role in our ability to see things from a clear perspective. When this chakra is out of alignment we find it difficult to see things from more than one perspective. Confusion can also be a side effect from this energy body being out of alignment. This chakra is associated with the colors purple and indigo. Crystals that work well in bringing this chakra into alignment are: blue adventurine, blue tourmaline, barite, charoite, amethyst, and celestite.
With a properly cut crystal, however, a healer can, like a surgeon cutting away a tumor, release negative patterns in the energy body, allowing the physical body to return to a state of wholeness ~ Dr. Richard Gerber
Seventh Chakra: The Crown Chakra
The crown chakra represents our connection to that which is limitless. It is our connection to God, but I always find a better way to explain this is that this chakra represents our connection to limitless resource and abundance. When this chakra is out of alignment we can experience difficulties coordinating through life, we struggle with seeing things from a perspective of limitlessness, we experience the world through the philosophy of lack rather than abundance and limitlessness. This crystal is represented by the colors white and purple. Crystals that work best to bring this chakra into alignment are: phenecite, clear quartz, rutilated quartz, spirit quartz, amethyst, and danurite.
These are by no means a complete list of crystals, but they do represent a good place to start if you want to incorporate crystals into your healing and spiritual practice. One thing to remember about crystals is they respond to intention. They can certainly aid us in discovery and assist us in bringing about change, but the reality is that if we remain unwilling to change in certain areas of our lives the crystals themselves will have little effect. It is important with all healing practices that you take a holistic approach, and adopt methods that assist you in many ways. Crystal energy is often subtle, but when someone aligns his or her intention to it through action it can create wonderful results. My prayer is that each person reading this article will find the strategies that work best for them to bring healing to themselves and also the planet.
