Crystals to Balance the Chakras
Merry Meet :))
We have seven major chakras within our bodies. These chakras are energy vortexes where energy flows through the universe to us. They are wheels of energy that are constantly spinning. If we don't keep them clean they can become slow or sometimes even blocked. It's very important to keep these centers clear and balanced. When you do so you will notice significant positive changes in both physical and emotional well being. One way we can do this is by working with crystals. Certain crystals have energy that vibrates best to help you clear and maintain your chakras.
Root Chakra: The root chakra is our base chakra that is located at the base of our spine. The color associated with this chakra is red. This chakra helps us to stay grounded. It can affect our physical energy, and emotional stability. Some crystals that work well on our root chakra include, hematite, black obsidian, black tourmaline, garnet, tiger's eye, and smoky quartz.

So how do we use them? There are many methods you can use to cleanse your chakras with gemstones, but here is a basic one to get you started. Find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed for awhile. You can light candles or play soft music if it helps you to relax. Choose a stone for each of the chakras you wish to work with. Place them over the chakra. Take your time and envision each chakra. Pull the energy fromt the gemstone through your chakra and visualize it clearing any debris and allownig itself to spin freely. You can place a hand over each stone if you wish as you do it.
Love and Blessings,
