How to use your healing chakra gemstones\nWhy are they called Chakra Stones?\nWe call them "Chakra Stones" in correlation to the 7 Chakra energy wheels inside your physical body. These stones have proven with spiritual healing practices such as Reiki, to help energy flow between the main Chakras, freeing discomfort and helping a multitude of people around the world. These special rocks are actually semi-precious stones, they go by many different names like healing crystals, gemstones, chakra stones and many more.\nWhy use Crystals for healing?\nCrystals are actually rocks which are one of the four basic elements, charged with natural energy. They act as a filter with your aura, absorbing negative energy, soothing you and can synchronize with your intentions.\n \n\nChakra function and crystal association\nFor starters, you must know about the 7 chakras and their specific colors. Here is a brief example I made associating the function of every chakra and their associated crystals and gemstones.\nFirst of all, the first chakra point is the "base chakra", it is your connection to your the root and foundation.\nIf you want to heal the “Root Chakra” which is the first of the seven Chakras, located at the base of the Chakra system. You will be concentrating on the survival and foundation aspects of yourself.\nThe ability you have of sustaining your life and to be able to grow on a strong foundation with room to expand and be able to build.\nThis particular Chakra is associated with the element of earth, strong, persevering and stable energy that defines our relationship to the earth itself.\nMuladhara is also represented by the color red which represents our need for order and logic.

The passage between the heart and the head, the way you manifest yourself and express your feelings.\nHaving trouble transferring a message or being unable to react the way you truly desire may indicate an energy blockage in your throat chakra that might need healing.\nThe element associated with this one is Ether, which is the fifth element, some people refer to it as the sound element and we like to call it the spirit element.\nSix Chakra Stones can be used to heal or balance this Chakra energy wheel:\n\nSodalite\nLapis-Lazuli\nAngelite\nTurquoise\nAquamarine\nAzurite\n\nThe "third eye chakra", this point is connected to your ability to see the bigger picture, your mind and seeing more than meets the eye. \nLocated in between your brows this chakra represents the all-seeing eye. This energy wheel is strengthened by meditation and yoga, meaning it is an intellectual energy force that is connected to your brain and can allow you to connect with a bigger vision of the world.\nThis particular Chakra wheel isn't associated to a specific element because it can connect to all of the elements.\nFour healing stones that can only bring a positive appeal to your third eye chakra energy point:\n\nAmethyst\nBlack Obsidian\nMoldavite\nPurple Fluorite\n\nLastly, the seventh chakra point is the "crown chakra", this chakra is associated with intuition and the spirit world.

The surcharge of energy or the weakened energy point is filtered by the chakra stone and heals the chakra slowly. Certain gemstones are designated to a charka color pattern and important in receiving the desired healing.\nWich gemstone is better for me?\nChoosing gemstones or crystals is easy while looking at them you can sense wich crystal resonates more with you and your energy, if you feel attracted to a specific crystal then its the one you need.
