It is essential to have a balanced life emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally. To enhance the stability of the seven chakras you can use earth crystals that help channel energy from the earth to the spiritual body. Each chakra has different colors; violet for the crown chakra, indigo for the third eye, blue for the throat chakra, green or pink for heart chakra, yellow for solar plexus, orange for the sacral chakra and red for the root chakra. These colors are basically from the rainbow. Interesting, right?
The first chakra is the root chakra which mainly focuses on the feeling of security, physical survival and dealing with fear. When balanced you feel a sense of security financially, physically and emotionally. You will also feel safe in any environment you might be in. To balance it, use crystals like the Red Jasper, Black onyx and Garnet.
The second chakra is the sacral chakra which is located on your sexual organs, pelvis and hip area. This chakra if imbalanced, you may have poor sex-life, feel guilty and experience the “victim attitude”. The crystals you can use to strengthen this chakra are the carnelian, orange calcite, tiger eye and sunstone.
The solar plexus is the third and is located bellow your ribcage and above your navel. This chakra focuses on aspects like self-confidence, self-esteem, self-respect and the responsibility to make decisions. If this chakra is weak you will definitely lack these and you might experience panic attacks, anxiety attacks or unexplainable fear. To strengthen this chakra, use citrine, yellow jasper and pyrite crystals.
The fourth chakra is the heart chakra. This chakra mainly focuses on personal relationships and feelings towards yourself and people. When imbalanced you will feel hatred, constant grief and become easily attached to things. To balance this chakra: use the rose quartz, green quartz and chrysoprase crystals.
The throat chakra is located on your throat. This fifth chakra if imbalanced, you might be dishonest and less likely to express yourself, you will find that you speak before you think and this might have consequences. You will also not be able to express your thoughts clearly resulting in poor communication. To strengthen it, use crystals like the turquoise howlite, sodalite and angelite.
The third eye chakra, located above your two eyes and between the eyebrows. This is the sixth chakra that guides one’s intuition and reveals wisdom and enlightenment. To balance the third eye, can use crystals like the amethyst, flourite and chaorite.
The seventh is the crown chakra. This mainly deals with your spiritual well-being and divinity. If it is imbalanced, you will find yourself unable to think clearly and constantly under stress. You will feel that your life lacks purpose and end up feeling lost and experience uncertainty. To heal this violet colored chakra, you need crystals like the amethyst, clear quartz and the moonstone.
Tip: Choose crystals according to the color of the chakra. You can also use these crystals when meditating to strengthen the chakras.
