Ancient wisdom tells us we have seven major chakras—important energy centers anchored at certain points within the body that act as gateways for the flow of vital life-force energy moving through us known as qi (pronounced “chee”). Each of these energy centers governs certain aspects of our being and personality, areas and interests in our life, and the physical sensations + emotional feelings we experience. The energy contained in, blocked, or flowing through our chakras can manifest in and around us in very real ways.
Often, our first real clue that something is off in one or more of our chakras is a problem we encounter in our life, be it a symptom of illness, a nagging negative emotion, or a repeated issue we keep facing in our day to day world. By working directly with and on the chakras affected, we can aid the healing process, restore the flow of qi, and begin to see real-world results.
One of the most effective tools for opening, aligning, and balancing the chakras are crystals. Crystals are powerful energy stimulators and regulators, and as such, they can be used to create change in the flow of our energy, impacting the chakras and our everyday experience. You can use crystals to support weak chakras, clear blocked chakras, tame overactive chakras, and bring balance to the whole being. All of this can be accomplished simply by wearing or carrying the crystal, laying it on the body where the affected chakra is located, or using it in a more creative way, such as with a crystal grid or essence.
But how do we know which crystals work best for which chakras? The standard way is to follow the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Each of these colors is associated with a major chakra. And crystals come in a variety of colors. The color of a crystal communicates important information to us about what part of the light spectrum it contains, what its mineral content is, and what it is good to use for. But with over 4000 known mineral species, there are a lot of choices for each and every chakra. So which one should you work with for which chakra and why?
