What are Chakra's
The Chakras are spinning 'wheels' of energy located in the body from the Crown to the Base as shown in the diagram below. These are the 7 main Chakras, but other minor Chakras exist in the body, including the palm of the hands. Chakras help to maintain your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance. Associated crystal gems, colours and scents are often used in Chakra Healing.
The seven Chakras are also connected to the seven layers of the aura: the Etheric, Emotional, Mental, Astral, the Etheric Template, Celestial and Ketheric Template of layers the aura.
How to use Crystals with the Chakra's
When using crystals with the Chakras, you will need to lie on your back and place the appropriate crystal on the Chakra points.
You should choose a time and place where you will not be disturbed and will be allowed to completely relax and meditate for about 15-20 minutes. You might want to listen to some meditation or relaxation music during this process.
When you start the exercise and once you've placed the crystal gems on the appropriate places on your body, make sure you are comfortable and close your eyes. Spend a few minutes performing some deep, controlled breathing exercises. Breathe in slowly and deeply, hold for a few seconds and then slowly breathe out. Do this for several minutes. While doing so, clear and calm your mind and imagine that each time you breathe out you are releasing all stress, worries and negative energies within you. Spend as long as you need to relax and clear your mind, but 5 minutes should be long enough. While doing this, imagine yourself being surrounded by a pure, bright white, loving light. This is your protective energy which will remain surrounded around your body during the exercise.
Now, starting from the 1st (Root/Base) Chakra, start to focus and concentrate on the stone and its associated Chakra colour (red) and imagine that area being bathed in a pure, clean, strong red colour. Imagine this as a small vortex of red spinning energy, swirling from and around the stone and within you. See and feel the beneficial energy from within the gemstone being absorbed by the body. Spend around 30-60 seconds concentrating and visualising this red colour energy. Now move onto the next stone and Chakra point (Sacral/Spleen) and repeat the same process with its associated colour. Complete this process in turn with each stone and Chakra point, always starting the exercise from the 1st Chakra moving upwards to the 7th (Crown) Chakra.
Once you have completed the exercise with the final (7th) Chakra, briefly imagine each Chakra, in turn, from the 1st to 7th Chakra, along with its associated colour, and imagine the coloured energy being absorbed into the body until gone. Understand that this will close down each of the Chakras so they can return back to their normal functional state. Once you have completed closing down each of the Chakras, take a few deep breaths, move your fingers and toes, open your eyes and gently stretch. You have now completed your Chakra meditation.
Clearing and Programming Chakra Crystals
Chakra crystals are a tool and can be like a storage battery for thought energy. “Clearing” has to do with the energy of the stone or crystal. Chakra crystals can be “programmed” with our thought energy and then act on our subtle chakra energy fields. They also to help to create situations in our lives that will lead us in directions that allow positive growth and healing.
Clearing a Chakra crystal or gem stone is a simple task, and it is a way to insure that there are no left over negative energies from the person who owned it before you. It is a way to personalize your Chakra crystal, and create a new energy bond between you and your new gem stone partner.
There are many ways to do this, but this is a simple and effective way – make sure you will not be disturbed. Hold your new crystal under running water, and as the water pours over it, close your eyes and imagine all the negative energies are washed away down the drain and out to the vast ocean to be purified by the cycles of life. You can also leave them in the warm sun, and allow the power of it’s light purify to the crystal with “fire”.
To program your new Chakra crystal, simply hold it in your hand, close your eyes, then in your imagination, create an image of what you want your crystal or gem stone to help you create. Keep your Chakra crystal close to your skin, and when you cannot wear it, store it in a special box or bag, which has also been purified and blessed. Fill your crystal companions with love, and you will receive it back threefold!
