What Are Chakras?

The Sanskrit word chakra has a literal meaning of disk or wheel.

In meditation or yoga, the word chakra relates to the wheels of energy that can be found all throughout your body.

There are seven major chakras that align the spine, starting at the base of spine and going up to the crown of the head.

Just think of it as a swirling of energy where consciousness and matter meet. It’s an invisible energy that is your vital life force.

Chakra healing crystals are those stones most capable of interacting with this energy and these inner wheels.

The vibrations given off by these stones can assist in realigning chakras if they become mismanaged, through no fault of your own.

They can also slow down chakras that are spinning too fast, often bringing with them a sense of hyperactivity or a sense of tension that is impossible to overcome.

Of course, doing so means having a greater understanding of how these stones and your chakras interact

What are Chakra Stones?

Chakra stones are different types of stones in various colors that support in the chakra natural healing process.

The Chakras in the human body have specific colors, and these colors change when the chakras are not functioning as they should.

So, what are they used for? Their energies are intended to help your chakras to find a greater sense of harmony and balance within you.

In many interpretations, chakras are spinning energy wheels, and as such they can fall out of alignment, spin too fast, or likewise fall into a sluggish turn that makes them barely functional.

Because each chakra corresponds to a certain part of ourselves, be that physical, emotional, mental or spiritual, the effects that come from losing that chakra’s balance are often keenly felt.

What takes a little more time and finesse is learning to pre-empt that, but this is another matter that crystals can help with.

Chakra Stone Colors

There are seven main chakras in the body. Each chakra has a corresponding color.

The root or base chakra resonates with the colors black and red.

The sacral chakra's color is orange.

Yellow is for the solar plexus chakra.

Green or pink is for the heart chakra.

The throat chakra's color is blue.

The third eye chakra has the color of indigo.

Purple or white is the color of the crown chakra.

Based on this, each chakra has several stones that can help heal them and boost them into proper functioning.

However, it does not necessarily mean that a specific color will not work on a certain chakra if it’s not its associated color.

There are some cases that a completely different color also works on a different chakra.

Sometimes a combination of a few colors can solve the problem. If you use a stone that has two different colors for one or more chakras, this combination can also help rejuvenate the affected chakras.

1. The Root Chakra

The root chakra is associated with the feeling of being grounded, and it represents your passions. It’s located at the base of the spine and is associated with the color red.

When the root chakra is underactive, it indicates that you are feeling tired, weak, or unmotivated. You can also be feeling pain on your legs or your lower back.

You are also most likely suffering from immune-system disorders. Often you find yourself going into survival mode.

If your root chakra is weak, you feel unhappy and dissatisfied with your body shape or size. You also feel like you are not in control of your life.

If your root chakra is overactive, you often explode furiously even at the smallest things.

When the root chakra is open, you feel right at home in your body. You are full of life, and you feel empowered.

For root chakra healing, it’s recommended to use red and black stones to bring back the balance and put it back in alignment.

Once it’s back to normal, you will feel more stable, grounded, solid, proud of yourself.

Place the chakra stone between your thighs, just near your groin. Think of the color black or red as you think of a stronger foundation, a more solid core, a happier life, and a stronger passion for everything.

2. The Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is the chakra that represents your creativity and ability to accept others. It can be found just below the belly button. Its chakra color is orange.

When your sacral chakra is weak or low, you often feel confused. You are also very dependent on other people.

You are very easily frustrated, and you often lack motivation. On a physical level, you also suffer from swelling or low hormone levels.

When the sacral chakra is open, you are flexible in body and mind. You are open, playful, and creative.

A low or weak energy flow to your sacral chakra causes a lack of energy and ambition. You can also feel extremely depressed and lethargic.

When the sacral chakra is underactive, you feel like your life is lacking in joyful moments.

When the sacral chakra is overactive, you experience a constant frustration, leading you to have an emotional breakdown.

Once your sacral chakra is brought back to balance, you will have the motivation, inspiration, and excitement that you need.

To use these, simply place an orange healing stone on the pelvic bone and visualize the healing energies of this stone filling your whole body.

3. The Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra represents your intellect and how you view yourself in your world. It’s associated with the color yellow, and it can be found in the upper abdomen.

When the solar plexus chakra is low or weak, you feel fearful, and you can become controlling. You lack self-confidence, and you are unable to express your emotions.

On a physical level, you also suffer from digestive problems.

When the solar plexus chakra is inactive, you cannot help but feel powerless, especially when you’re experiencing a lot of stress.

You often feel like there are butterflies in your stomach, and like you can’t regain control over your life.

When your solar plexus chakra is overactive, you have the wild desire to control everything that you become a control freak.

When this chakra is balanced, you can easily release your tendency to control everything. You become open to new ideas, and you look forward to experiencing joy and happiness.

Once your solar plexus chakra gets back to its normal balance, you will begin to feel inspired, goal-oriented, and confident in your decisions.

To use these for solar plexus chakra healing, place the stones two inches above your belly button. Think of the color yellow and a bright sunny day.

Focus on your ability to manifest and your energy center growing stronger with your every breath.

4. The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra represents your ability to love unconditionally and to accept others. Its chakra colors are pink and green, and this chakra is located at the center of the chest.

When the heart chakra is weak or low, you feel stressed, bitter, jealous, and anxious.

On a physical level, it can manifest as low or high blood pressure, low or high heart rate, or cysts and lumps in your breasts.

Your heart chakra is weak if you often find yourself having problems in your relationship. You also feel detached from your loved ones.

You have an overactive heart chakra if you become too attached to things, and this results in you being too emotional every time.

When the heart chakra is open and balanced, you become more relaxed, open, and accepting to new relationships. You are able to maintain healthy relationships and feel love and forgiveness.

You radiate love, and your relationships strengthen and become full of positivity again.

To use these stones in heart chakra healing, place them on your breastbone and visualize the colors pink and green.

Imagine them soothing, healing, and opening your heart. Allow yourself to be healed and let all of your anger go!

5. The Throat Chakra

The throat chakra represents expression and communication. It can be found at the throat area, and its chakra color is blue.

When your throat chakra is weak or low, you feel an inability to express yourself in a positive way. You often can’t find the right words to say, and you sometimes can’t help but stutter.

There are feelings of being misunderstood and isolated. On a physical level, you often suffer from a stiff neck, tight jaw, and sore throat.

A throat chakra that is misaligned or imbalanced makes you unable to express your truth.

When the throat chakra is overactive, you say the first thing that pops in your head, often causing hurtful words and unnecessary arguments.

You also find that you cannot express your thoughts articulately, leading to frustration and miscommunication.

When the throat chakra is open and free, you become more communicative and expressive.

You remain true to who you are, and you experience better oral health, especially in the throat, nasal passages, teeth, gums, and mouth area.

To use these stones for throat chakra healing, place them on the larynx and focus on the color blue. Envision clear communication, powerful words, and positive speech.

6. The Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra represents your ability to see and focus on the big picture. It signifies your understanding of the ups and downs of life.

Its chakra color is indigo, and it can be found on the forehead right between the eyes.

When the third eye chakra is weak or low, you experience inflexibility, a stiff neck, a foggy brain, and an overactive mind.

You feel like you cannot organize your life or visualize what you want to happen with it.

You have an overactive third eye if you suffer from nightmares every night. You also feel like you’re stuck in an emotional rut.

You become closed off to new ideas. You often feel like your intuition is out of sorts, and you cannot trust your own instincts.

When your third eye chakra is free and open, you will have a clearer mind and a stronger intuition. You will also have an enhanced ability to resolve your problems. You will be better focused and motivated.

To use these stones for third eye chakra healing, place them between the brows and focus on the color purple. Concentrate on your mental clarity and on your strengthening intuition.

7. The Crown Chakra

The crown chakra represents divine inspiration. Its chakra color is violet and white, and it can be found at the top of the head.

When the crown chakra is weak or low, you feel uncertain about who you are and why you are here in this world. You are rigid in your thinking, and you feel out of step and uninspired.

You are unable to think clearly when you’re under a lot of stress. You feel like you’re going through life with no specific purpose or direction, leaving you feeling lost and uncertain.

When the crown chakra is open, you become more flexible when it comes to the ebb and flow of life.

You are unruffled by life’s surprising turns, and you are able to look at setbacks from a positive perspective.

For crown chakra healing, simply put the stones on top of your head and think of a white or violet light. Focus on your connection with the divine and with your spirit.

Chakra Stones Layout

Select the stones that you want to use. Make sure that you clear your stones when you first get them at the start of every healing.

For clearing the stones, you can wash them in salt water (actual sea water or water with dissolved sea salt in it). You can also bury them in the ground with the points down.

You can expose them under the moonlight, or you can run them under cool water.

Another method you can do is to hold them in your fist and blow into them with the intention of clearing and purifying them.

Put your them somewhere they’ll be accessible to you once you lie down.

Lie down comfortably on a surface. You can use a blanket and a pillow for your knees or your head if you want to be more comfortable.

Breathe in deeply and slowly into your stomach for a few minutes. Set your intention for this healing and focus on that intention.

If you’re only going to work on just one chakra, state your intention for that particular chakra. If you’re going to work on all your chakras, state all your intentions for each chakra.

Place the chakra stone on the corresponding chakra if you’re only going to work on one chakra.

If you’re going to work on all seven chakras, you can do it in two ways. The first one is to start at the crown chakra, making your way down to the root chakra.

You can also go the other way, working from the lowest chakra to the highest chakra.

Don’t get so worked up about which direction to go. Just go with what feels right and natural for you!

If you start at the crown chakra, make sure that the points on the stones are facing downwards toward your feet.

Conversely, if you start at the root chakra, the points on the stones should be facing upwards toward the crown chakra.

Some healers place stones on top of their heads and below their feet. Some hold them in each hand.

If a chakra stone does not feel comfortable or right to you, or if it keeps rolling off your body when you put it on you, go with your gut and remove it.

You can proceed and leave the chakra without a stone, or you can use a different chakra stone.

As you place each stone on the chakra, set your specific intention for healing that chakra. Pay attention to the energy of the stone and visualize its color and energy tuning your chakra.

After all the stones have been set, rest for a while and allowing your chakras to be cleared and balanced by the stones.

Breathe evenly. Clear your mind as much as possible and head to that space between thoughts.

When the stones start rolling off your body, or when it feels like it’s time, proceed with closing the healing.

Remove them one by one according to their order. Thank them if you feel like a thank you is in order.

Gently bring back your awareness to the present. Let yourself transition smoothly back into your daily life. Drink a glass of water, or eat a piece of fruit.

You may also want to write down what you have just experienced in your journal.

Watch out for soft and positive changes in your body for the next few days or so.
