How to Balance Chakras With Crystals


Chakras are major energy centers within the body.  We are energy at the core of our being and chakras are the major hubs of this energy. Chakras hold thoughts and emotions so depending on your state of mind, your chakras can become imbalanced in different areas of life.  Using crystals is an easy and affordable way of helping you to balance your chakras.

The easiest way to tell if you are out of balance in a particular chakra is to honestly evaluate your life. Do you have healthy or toxic relationships?  Are you holding on to people from the past? Any unhealthy vices or desires?  Do you have issues of love or hate?  When confronted, do you speak your mind or bite your tongue?  Are you independent or, dependent on other people? These are just a few examples.  Let’s look at each chakra and give major keywords of what each entail.

Chakra Keywords & Colors

Root Chakra – protection, security, home, grounding; red, black

Sacral Chakra – relationships, desire, creativity, sex; orange

Solar Plexus Chakra – ego, willpower, self esteem, personal power; yellow

Heart Chakra – love, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion; green, pink

Throat Chakra – self expression, communication, choices; blue

Third Eye/Brow Chakra – intuition, discerning truth from illusion, psychic powers; indigo, dark blue

Crown Chakra – Source, connection to ALL, higher self; violet, purple, white

The above keywords for each chakra basically covers every area of life.  Now that you know what each chakra entails, you need to know what crystals go with each one.  The easiest way to select crystals for each chakra is to get a crystal or stone that is the same color as the chakra. Red stones will work well with the root chakra.  Orange stones go with the sacral chakra.  Yellow stones vibrate with the solar plexus.  And so on, up to the crown.

The following list will give a few ideas of crystals and gemstones that work with each chakra. Select one for each chakra for a total of 7 stones.  Check out our store for affordable crystals and our “7 Chakra Crystal Set”.

Crystals & Stones for Each Chakra

All linked stones are available in our online store

Root Chakrablack onyx, red jasper, obsidian

Sacral Chakracarnelian, orange calcite

Solar Plexus Chakracitrine, yellow jasper

Heart Chakragreen aventurine, rose quartz

Throat Chakralapis lazuli, blue lace agate, kyanite

Third Eye/Brow Chakraapatite, moldavite, labradorite

Crown Chakraamethyst, apophylite, clear quartz

Every crystal corresponds to a chakra.  Some crystals work well with multiple chakras.  I recommend having a good crystal encyclopedia.  The one I love to use is Judy Hall’s “Encyclopedia of Crystals”.

Be sure to clean each crystal or stone by letting them sit in sea salt for a few hours.  You can also charge them by placing in sunlight for an hour or so.

How to Balance Chakras With Crystals

  • Select 7 crystals – one for each chakra (see above for ideas)

  • Lay down on your back in a comfortable position.  You can place pillow under your head and/or feet to ensure that your back is flat.
  • Place your 7 crystals on each major chakra.  The root chakra crystal will be directly below your feet. The crown chakra crystal is placed right above your head.  Each other crystal can be placed directly on the body (5 chakras).  See picture for placement example
  • Breathe into each chakra for 3-5 minutes.  Focus your mind on each chakra while taking deep breaths. Begin at the root (located in between your anus and genitalia) and work your way up to the crown.  You will spend 3-5 minutes breathing deeply and focusing on one chakra at a time. This process will last for 21-35 minutes depending on how long you are at each point.

Balancing chakras with crystals, focused breath, and thought is a powerful and simple technique that anyone can do.  You may experience tingles or sensations in a few areas.  Pay attention to how you feel.  You may do this practice every day or as regularly as you see fit.

7 Spiritual Tools to Help Open the Third Eye

spiritual tools 3rd eye

The third eye, or pineal gland, is considered the 6th major energy center called the brow or ajna chakra.  This chakra is responsible for visions, intuition, psychic abilities, and discernment of truth from illusion. Many people studying and practicing metaphysics and spirituality usually want to activate and open the third eye more.  This article is intended to provide tools that anyone can use to increase third eye energy.

Firstly, a tool is just that; a tool.  Most tools are not designed to do the work for you.  Most tools will help YOU do the work.  A hammer makes nailing things together easier but you have to put effort into hitting the nail.  Writing utensils make it easier to take notes and convey information but you have to physically write or draw.  All tools are extensions of the innate potential that we have in all of us.  Spiritual tools are no exception.

Secondly, every tool is not for everyone.  Spiritual tools are not one-size-fits-all. The key is to find a tool and practice that works for you.  This is done by paying attention to what resonates with you.  The judgement of, if a tool assists you, is the results that you get after working with it. If you are no further along than before, that tool may have not been a “good” fit for you.

The spiritual tools outlined in this article were chosen to provide general assistance to most people.  Remember to choose and work with things that you are naturally attracted to and that resonate with you.

7 Spiritual Tools to Help Open the Third Eye

  1. Herbs – There are herbs designed to affect any part of the mind and/or body including the pineal gland and 3rd eye.  You may smoke or make a tea out of an herb or combination of herbs.  Herbs like mugwort, gotu kola, calea zacatechichi, wood betony, alfalfa, and parsley work wonderfully with the 3rd eye.
  2. Crystals & GemstonesCrystals hold information that can be programmed and tapped into.  You can place a crystal on your forehead when meditating, sleep with it under your pillow, or carry on your person.  Some of my favorites are lapis lazuli, moldavite, labradorite, amethyst, and apophyllite.  Check out our CRYSTALS & STONES OF POWER
  3. Binaural Beats & Other Meditation Sounds – Sound is something that can be used for many things including 3rd eye activation.  This is done by what many people call brainwave entrainment.  There are sounds and frequencies that automatically rewire and reroute certain aspects of the brain. One popular frequency is 936hz.  Check out our MEDITATION MP3s
  4. Blue-Green Algae & Other Superfoods – The supplement blue-green algae is a superfood that just gets things done. The pineal gland thrives on alkaline foods and blue-green algae is packed with chlorophyll. Some other superfoods that will help empower the pineal gland are chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass, and sea moss.  Check out our SUPERFOODS
  5. Scrying Objects – Scrying is when you softly stare at an object or thing to provoke visions and psychic impressions. Anything that is reflective to light can be used for scrying.  Practicing scrying will help the third eye tune into seeing what is not seen with the physical eyes.  Some objects for scrying are water, mirrors, crystal balls, and stones.
  6. Medallions and Amulets – Medallions and amulets are spiritually charged items of power.  There are medallions and amulets to increase spiritual energy in any area of life.  The longer you wear a medallion the more energy your system will absorb.  Meditating with tools of power will exponentially increase your benefits.  Check out the “THIRD EYE OPENER” TALISMAN at (
  7. Essential Oils – Essential oils and aromatherapy have been used for ages to invoke certain experiences.  There are literally essential oils for everything!  Essential oils can be used in spiritual baths, anointed on forehead and temples during meditation, inhaled, and burned or diffused.  Some great essential oils for the third eye are lavender, frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, and clary sage.  Check out our “3RD EYE MAGICK OIL”
Have fun working with any spiritual tool that you are drawn to.  Keep in mind that it will not do the work for you.  Happy travels and now…..GET TO WORK!

Best Crystals for Third Eye Chakra


You are pure energy and this energy is condensed and spread throughout the body.  A chakra is simply an energy hub in your body.  The pathways that send chi or ki energy throughout the body are called meridians.  The third eye, like every chakra, responds greatly to crystals and gemstones.

Your third eye is responsible for intuition, visions, premonitions, dreams, spirituality, and other so-called sixth sense abilities.  Placing crystals on your forehead while you meditate or, wearing them as jewelry, enhances your spiritual senses by opening up your third eye chakra.

As with most things in life, different tools work differently for each person.  This list is an example of my personal favorites.  There are many crystals for the third eye and I suggest that you experiment with any that you are attracted to.

For a more detailed approach to using crystals to open up the third eye chakra check out the article,  How to Use Crystals & Gemstones for Third Eye Chakra Opening.
