Updated: May 28

Healing Crystals

When we have all kinds of crystals in our collection, it can be hard to know what to do with them or which crystals are good for what. In this post I list the top three crystals for each chakra to take the guess work out of which crystals to start using for your healing.

These are crystals that I use personally on my journey and have helped me heal from some serious wounds like anxiety, emotional instability, and cowardice.

When picking the crystal you want to heal with, it is important to know what emotions/trauma/trigger you are seeking to heal and which chakra the wound is connected to. If you are feeling stuck download my chakra journal to help you connect any emotional trauma the corresponding chakra.

Here’s a look at each chakra, its characteristics, associated traumas, and my top 3 crystals to heal and restore balance.

Each of the seven main chakras, or energy centers, in our body corresponds to different physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our lives. Imbalances or blockages in these chakras can manifest as various traumas, challenges, and even physical limitations.

How to Use Crystals for Chakra Healing

  1. Meditation: Hold the crystal or place it on the corresponding chakra while meditating. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel for weekly healing meditations.

  2. Wear Jewelry: Incorporate chakra stones into necklaces, bracelets, or rings to keep their energy close. I love getting crystal jewelry on Etsy and intentional wearing the jewelry on me for protection, motivation, and confidence. I am also looking at a new line of jewelry that I am excited to try!

  3. Healing Baths: Add crystals to your bathwater and or around you tub to charge the energy of your bath to immerse yourself in their energy. (selenite is a crystal I would keep outside of the tub, water can break it up or rust it a little)

Balancing your chakras can lead to profound healing and personal growth. By understanding the characteristics and traumas associated with each chakra and using the ideal crystals, you can create a more harmonious and fulfilling life.
