Chakras and crystals are both forms of energetic healing.
Chakra concept found in the early traditions of Hinduism. The chakras are seven centres of spiritual energy in the human body.
Each chakra represents different energy and locates in the astral body along the spine, starting at the base of the spine and running upwards to the crown of the head.
Sometimes the chakras are blocked, and this happens if the energy doesn’t flow easily in a particular area of your life.
Crystals are also used in energy healing and their chemical structures are believed to relate them with certain qualities. Crystal healing therapy involves placing gemstones on the body to draw out negative energy.
What is Chakra?
The word chakra means “wheel” or “rotating ring”.
Chakras represent the centres of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number.
The individual chakras are positioned where energy channels join in the body and work as “transformers” that control the energies of the body.
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is the fourth primary chakra, and it represents the centre of love, compassion and joy in our life. It is located at the centre of the chest on the sternum.
The Heart Chakra is connected to unconditional love and compassion, passion and devotion.
Balance the heart chakra:
When meditating try to place one of these crystals on the Heart Chakra: rose quartz, clear quartz, jade, green calcite.
You can also diffuse the following Essential oils during meditation: rose, geranium, neroli.
The crystal for unconditional love is said to be the stone for supporting the heart chakra, it resonates a strong, loving vibration.
Rose Quartz helps us energetically to restore trust and harmony in relationships, opening our heart and promote love, self-love, deep inner healing and feelings of peace.
Rose quartz’s pink colour is soothing and calming feelings of anger or resentment and can support meditation.
How to Balance Your Chakras with Meditation?
You can balance the energy flow between the chakras by imagining their colours while practising meditation and using your breath to focus on the specific chakra location in the body.
If you find one or more chakras to be challenging to imagine, try to understand what the particular chakra symbolises and in which way you can make a change in your life related to this chakra.
