Chakra & Chakra Cleansing

Using crystals to cleanse or balance the chakras is a popular practice in alternative healing and holistic wellness. Each chakra is associated with specific energy centers in the body, and different crystals are believed to resonate with and support the energy of each chakra. Here's a guide on how to use crystals to cleanse and balance your chakras:

1. **Understand the chakras:** Familiarize yourself with the seven main chakras and their corresponding colors, locations, and attributes:


  • Root Chakra (Muladhara) - Red - Base of the spine - Grounding, security 
  • Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana) - Orange - Lower abdomen - Relationships, feelings
  • Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) - Yellow - Upper abdomen - Energy & vitality
  • Heart Chakra (Anahata) - Green - Center of the chest - Love, balance, connection
  • Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) - Blue - Throat - Communication & expression
  • Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) - Indigo - Forehead, between the eyebrows - Intuition 7 understanding
  • Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) - Violet or white - Top of the head - Enlightenment & transcendence 

2. **Select your crystals:** Choose crystals that correspond to each chakra. Some popular choices include:
  •  Root Chakra: Red jasper, Snowflake Obsidian, Garnet, Red Tigers Eye
  •  Sacral Chakra: Carnelian, Sardonyx, Sunstone, Goldstone
  •  Solar Plexus Chakra: Citrine, yellow calcite, golden tiger's eye
  •  Heart Chakra: Rose quartz, green aventurine, emerald
  •  Throat Chakra: Blue lace agate, aquamarine, sodalite
  •  Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst, lapis lazuli, fluorite
  •  Crown Chakra: Clear quartz, amethyst, selenite

3. **Prepare for the practice:** Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can relax without interruptions. You may also want to cleanse your crystals before using them by rinsing them under running water or smudging them with sage or palo santo.

4. **Place the crystals:** Lie down or sit comfortably and place the appropriate crystals on or near each corresponding chakra. You can refer to a chakra chart if you're unsure of the locations.

5. **Meditate with intention:** Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to center yourself. Set an intention to cleanse and balance your chakras, allowing the energy of the crystals to flow through you.

6. **Visualize and focus:** As you meditate, visualize each chakra spinning and radiating its associated color. Focus on the sensation of the crystals' energy interacting with each chakra, helping to clear any blockages and restore balance.

7. **Stay present:** Remain in this meditative state for as long as you feel comfortable, allowing the crystals to work their magic. Pay attention to any sensations, emotions, or insights that arise during the practice.

8. **End with gratitude:** When you're ready to conclude the practice, gently bring your awareness back to the present moment. Express gratitude for the experience and the healing energy of the crystals.

Regularly cleansing and balancing your chakras with crystals can promote overall well-being and harmony in mind, body, and spirit. Experiment with different crystals and techniques to find what works best for you.
