Root Chakra

Muladhara

Red Garnet ● Red Jasper ● Smoky Quartz ● Black Onyx ● Hematite

This chakra encompasses the first three vertebrae, the bladder, and the colon and the chakra of stability, security, basic needs. When this chakra is opened and balanced, we feel grounded, solid and confident.

If your root chakra is weak, you may feel like you are unhappy with your body size or shape. You may feel as if you are out of control of your life and you can’t gain control. If your root chakra is overactive, you might find that you often explode angrily at the smallest things.rough your sacral chakra will cause a lack of energy and motivation. You may feel extremely lethargic and even depressed, lacking any joyful moments in your life. If your sacral chakra is overactive, you may be feeling a constant frustration, leading to you breaking down in tears too often.

Sacral Chakra

Svadhisthana

Carnelian ● Orange Calcite ● Tiger’s Eye ● Sunstone

This chakra encompasses the first three vertebrae, the bladder, and the colon and the chakra of stability, security, basic needs. When this chakra is opened, the chakra is our creativity and sexual center.

The sacral chakra is located above the pubic bone, and below the navel. It is responsible for our creative expression. Balance your sacral chakra and you will begin to feel excitement, inspiration, and motivation. When balanced, we feel grounded, solid and confident.

A low energy flow through your sacral chakra will cause a lack of energy and motivation. You may feel extremely lethargic and even depressed, lacking any joyful moments in your life. If your sacral chakra is overactive, you may be feeling a constant frustration, leading to you breaking down in tears too often.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Manipura

Citrine ● Yellow Jasper ● Smoky Quartz ● Rutilated Quartz ● Pyrite

The solar plexus chakra is the root of our personal power to feel motivated, focused and confident in our decisions.

Inactivity of the solar plexus chakra will cause you to feel powerless, especially when you are under pressure. You may often feel butterflies in your stomach, or feel as if you can’t gain control over your life. If your solar plexus chakra is overactive, you will feel the uncontrollable need to control everything about your life; a “control freak.” For solar plexus chakra healing, try using yellow gemstones, such as Citrine, Yellow Jasper, Rutilated Quartz and Pyrite.

Heart Chakra

Anahata

Rose Quartz Chrysoprase ● Aventurine ● Rhodonite

Once your heart chakra becomes realigned, you will radiate love of all kinds and your relationships will begin to strengthen.

If you find yourself having problems in your relationships or feeling unattached to the people you love, it may indicate that your heart chakra is weak. If your heart chakra is overactive, you may find yourself becoming too attached to things, resulting in you being overly emotional all the time. To practice heart chakra healing, meditating with green and pink heart chakra stones, over your heart to open it up to all types of love.

Located at the heart center, the fourth chakra, anahata is at the middle of the seven and unites the lower chakras of matter and the upper chakras of spirit. The fourth is also spiritual but serves as a bridge between our body, mind, emotions, and spirit. The heart chakra is our source of love and connection.

Throat Chakra

Vishuddha

Angelite ● Sodalite ● Blue Apatite ● Aquamarine

A balanced throat chakra will enable clear communication and allow you express yourself clearly, truthfully, and effectively.

A weak throat chakra will make you unable to speak your truth and express yourself. When your throat chakra is overactive, you often speak before you think, resulting in unnecessary arguments and hurtful words. When your throat chakra becomes unbalanced, you will find that you cannot articulate your thoughts clearly, leading to miscommunications and frustration. For throat chakra healing, meditating with throat chakra stones on your throat is recommended.

Throat Chakra

Third Eye Chakra

Ajna

Lapis Lazuli ● Sodalite ● Fluorite ● Kyanite Angelite ● Amethyst ● Iolite

Located just below the crown chakra in between the eyebrows, the third eye is linked with enhanced intuition, inner wisdom, and creative inspiration.

If you feel a lack of clarity in your life or have trouble seeing the truth in yourself or situations, it’s a sign that you need a third eye chakra cleanse. In crystal therapy, indigo colored gemstones such as reawaken inner wisdom, which opens the door to self-knowledge. If you feel you cannot visualize and organize your life very well, then your third eye chakra may be under active. If your third chakra is overactive, you may experience nightmares each night. You may begin to feel stuck and in an emotional rut, becoming closed off to new ideas. You may also feel as if your intuition is off, and you cannot trust your “gut feelings.” For third eye chakra healing, lay on your back and place your favorite third eye chakra crystals, over your third eye and just relax.

Crown Chakra

Muladhara

Clear Quartz ● Amethyst ● Selenite ● Moonstone

When the crown chakra is balanced and harmonious, it opens the doorway to spiritual enlightenment.

An inability to think clearly when you are under stress means that your crown chakra is unbalanced. You may feel like you are going about life without having a specific purpose or path, leaving you feeling lost.
Situated at the top of the head, the Crown chakra is the pathway to all other chakras, which is why energy healers typically start with a crown chakra cleanse before any therapeutic session. Associated with the color violet, Amethyst crystals are excellent crown chakra activators. In healing layouts, these stones are placed on the forehead to encourage a feeling of transcendence from negative, self-defeating thoughts.
