Crystals for Balancing the Chakras
Our chakras are like an energy pump. When our chakras are in balance the energy flows smoothly and freely and we experience good health and wellbeing on all levels, physical, mental emotional and spiritual. If they are blocked or unbalanced, the energy flow will be sluggish, eratic, a flood or a trickle! We will feel unhealthy, dissatisfied with life.
A crystal of the correct type placed on the chakra will "remind" the chakra of the correct frequency for balance and gently remove blockages, so restoring the feeling of wellbeing.
There are a myriad of crystals to choose from, each with their own unique qualities, so selecting which crystal to use for each chakra may seem a daunting task.
Here is my suggestions for a crystal to balance each of the seven main chakras along with a brief description of some of the properties of the crystal. The crystals I have chosen are all widely available crystals.
Please note that if you have a physical condition, you should always consult a medical Doctor.
