The chakra system is the Indian and Buddhist interpretation of our subtle energy body, similar to the Chinese Meridian System. The Sanskrit translation is 'Spinning Wheel of Light,' this describes how each chakra point is energy vortex.
The energies need to flow in a clockwise direction into the body, and counterclockwise behind you to release. Any imbalances in energy system can cause psychological and physical symptoms, so it's vital to nurture your spiritual body.
One of the ways you can heal this system is through realignment. You simply lay down and place a crystal of the corresponding colour on the chakra point, then sit back and relax as your energy blends with the healing frequency of the crystal.
Check out the chart below that illustrates the color associations with each chakra meridian, plus examples of crystals that work well for alignments.
Crown - Purple
Connect with source.
Imagine an energy point shooting out of the top of your head, receiving cosmic downloads and serenity. Blockages to this point can create depression and anxiety.
CRYSTALS: amethyst, lepidolite and thulite
Third eye - Indigo
Align your vision
This chakra is what gives us clarity of vision. When this chakra is imbalanced, it can cause 'projections,' where your imagination creates situations that are created from your false perspective.
CRYSTALS: lapis lazuli, turquiose and labradorite
Throat - Blue
Speak your truth
This is how we connect with other human beings, sharing our experiences and stories with others. It's a common chakra point that can get blocked, as we can sometimes struggle to speak our truths due to social pressure.
CRYSTALS: kyanite, blue Calcite and sodalite
Heart - Green
Open your heart and soul
This chakra is where we feel and relate to others, it is important to keep this meridian point nourished with good thoughts, imbalances can lead you to be introverted and unreasonably suspicious of others.
CRYSTALS: serpentine, green tourmaline and adventurine
Solar Plexus - Yellow
Let your unique self shine.
The solar plexus is where our self-confidence sits, it's our carnal nature. Blockages in this area can lead people to be very anxious and self-absorbed.
CRYSTALS: citrine, tiger's iron and pyrite
Fuel your passion
This chakra feeds our creativity and sensuality, it regulates our personal freedom and self-confidence. When this chakra is out of balance, it can lead to stagnation and low self-esteem.
CRYSTALS: sunstone, orange calcite and agate
Root - Red / Black
Stand in your power
The root chakra connects us to the earth, it keeps us grounded. When there are blockages we become unstable. As this is the base of your chakra system it can set your entire energy system off balance.
CRYSTALS: onyx, carnelian and smokey quartz
You can also use your pendulum to check the energy flow at each point. Energy should flow into the body in a clockwise motion, if your pendulum turns in an anti-clockwise direction, this is a sign of blocked energy.
