The Chakras are the energy centers located in the area of specific human organs. They are linked to each other by energy channels. Stimulating the Chakras by means of meditation creates a feeling of wholeness and balance beneficial to both mental and physical health.
Placing a specific crystal on a Chakra helps to evoke and stimulate the most subtle forces.
- Before and after crystal healing sessions engage your mind while placing the crystals. Which visualization images would be most inspiring for you?
- Clear the room of discharged negative energy after a session, using the same cleansing method you used to cleanse your crystals (see Preparing Your Crystals section).
- Wash your hands in cool running water directly afterwards to boost your body’s beneficial negative ions.
- Re-cleanse your crystals straight after a session. It is easier to remember which crystals you used and ensures you don’t forget this essential process altogether.
Balancing The Chakras
For healing to take place the Chakras must be balanced and in harmony. Use two single-terminated quartz crystals:
- Lie down and settle yourself comfortably.
- Place one of the crystals at your feet, with the point towards your head. Put the other crystal at the crown of your head with the terminated end pointing down.
- Take a few minutes to visualize your entire subtle energy system becoming harmoniszd and balanced.
- Be aware of any sensations of blockage or soreness.
- Ask your higher mind to indicate what the problem is and how to deal with it. Act on that intuitive guidance in a separate session with whichever additional crystals you need to use at that time.
A Revitalizing Energy Boost
Hold two single-terminated clear quartz crystals, one in each hand, while sitting upright on a chair with your feet firmly grounded. The terminated (pointed) ends of the crystals should be directed towards your body.
This positive polarity directs energy from the universal field, distributing it throughout the subtle energy system. Breathe slowly and deeply, visualizing the energy coursing through your body, leaving you feeling revitalized.
Welcome Stress Relief
Lay comfortably on the floor and place a single-terminated quart crystal across your Solar Plexus Chakra, with the terminated end pointing upwards towards the Crown Chakra.
Visualize the excess inappropriate energy being drawn out of your field and discharged into the universal field. Note: it is important to clear the room of dispersed negative energy after such a session.
Relief from Headaches
Place Rose Quartz, Aventurine or Blue Lace Agate crystals on the affected area for 5 minutes. Create whatever visualization image you feel is right.
For sharp headaches, hold the crystals against your temples. For duller headaches lay with your head against a soft pillow and place a crystal at the back of your head at the point where the base of the skull meets the neck.
Helping Localized Pain Relief
This technique can be used for sprained muscles, period pains, rheumatism or arthritis. Hold one single-terminated quartz crystal in your right (sending) hand with the pointed end towards the affected area for a few minutes and visualize a soothing image.
If the pain is spread over a large area, cover the entire area with exaggerated stroking movements with the blunt (feminine) end of the crystal towards the area of pain. As the crystal comes away from the body, flick the crystal into the air to discharge negative energy.
