Healing crystals are not only beautiful, but incredibly powerful. Bringing them into your personal practice can revolutionize the way you interact with the power of the universe and open up an immense wealth of power inside yourself.
Healing crystals can behave as a magnifying glass, amplifying the energy that enters our body, helping to balance chakras and protect us from negativity.
You may have also heard the 12 chakras referred to during your Kundalini journey. These refer to 12 intense, spinning energy centers within and around the body, each correlating with an aspect of our mind, spirit, or body.
When these fall out of balance or become blocked we begin to feel a whole host of negative sensations, and it can have a significant impact on our work, relationships, and creativity.
In this guide we will explore the perfect healing crystal for balancing and supporting each of the 12 chakras.
Root & Black Tourmaline
The root chakra is situated at the base of the spine and is our physical connection into the Earth. It keeps us grounded when life runs away with us, but it is also closely associated with our spirituality.
The black tourmaline healing crystal complements the root chakra perfectly, helping to protect and ward off evil, while soothing anxiety and helping to ground us further.
Sacral & Tiger’s Eye
The magical, swirling tones of the tiger’s eye perfectly match the flow of the sacral chakra, which is closely associated with the water element.
The sacral chakra is important in relationships, fertility, and desire, which is amplified by the tiger’s eye when used in conjunction.
They are also both closely connected to the immune system and seasonal affective disorder, so using a tiger’s eye in your practices can help to give you a boost in the winter months.
Solar Plexus & Pietersite
The solar plexus chakra is closely associated with our ambition. Our natural gifts and unique powers come from this point. When it is blocked we can find ourselves struggling to fulfill our work and hobbies to our best ability.
Pietersite is a healing crystal that helps to guide us to our goals. It allows us to see our future with clarity, and gives us a nudge in the right direction when we are coming off track.
Pietersite is a perfect crystal to help to support the solar plexus chakra to give you the chance to achieve the world.
Heart & Rose Quartz
The heart chakra and rose quartz healing crystals are a natural pairing. The heart chakra leads our relationships, guiding us through love and enabling us to feel a depth of emotions when it is in balance.
Rose quartz helps to magnify these sensations, while also healing emotional wounds, allowing us to move forwards from trauma and love again, and set boundaries which allow us to flourish.
Throat & Blue Angelite
If you are struggling to communicate and listen effectively, it might be due to an imbalance in your throat chakra. This chakra is closely associated with our ability to listen to others, as well as speak our mind and find spiritual understanding.
Blue Angelite brings peace and tranquility, but also helps to facilitate communication, especially between romantic partners.
It is associated with relaxation, and helps to reduce the anxiety that comes with speaking your mind. It’s also thought to help with writer’s block for the same reason.
Third Eye & Lapis Lazuli
The third eye chakra is connected to our telepathic ability. Our insight, empathy, and wisdom is all tightly wrapped up within this chakra.
When we seek to open it, we begin to see deeper into the signs and symbols in front of us, allowing us to develop an intensely deep understanding of our world.
The beautiful lapis lazuli healing crystal helps to facilitate the third eye, bringing self-confidence and self-esteem, and helping us to manifest our deepest desires.
Crown & Smoky Quartz
The crown chakra, situated at the top of the head, is closely associated with wisdom, and transcendence. When it is balanced, we feel calm, capable, and not limited by our mental or physical capacity.
Smoky Quartz is powerful at calming negativity and soothing feelings of hurt, allowing the crown chakra to open up for meditation, giving us the mental space to visualize and manifest the future we deserve.
Soul & Chrysocolla Azurite
The soul chakra is responsible for communication with other realms. Located just a few inches above the crown of the head, it facilitates interaction with our spirit guides, and brings memories of past lives.
Chrysocolla Azurite healing crystal helps to balance the soul chakra, and is especially effective for women, helping to open the mind up to unseen possibilities, and drawing on the wisdom we have garnered through the spiritual realms in order to support us in our lives and dreams.
Luminary & Sunstone
The luminary chakra is closely associated with the color gold due to its connection to the divine, acting as the doorway between our physical, human self and our divine, universal self.
The beautiful, golden sunstone is empowering, but also soothing to the soul, allowing the connection with divinity to flourish without anxiety.
Earth & Malachite
The earth chakra is located beneath the feet, and is our physical connection with the ground. It connects us closely to the cosmos and nature, as well as our ancestral past.
Malachite is a beautiful green crystal which facilitates this connection with nature and outdoor spaces, helping us to heal generational trauma and proceed with wisdom and happiness.
Supernatural & Moonstone
Moonstones bring vitality and energy to their owner. Filled with magical energy, they are beautiful and very powerful. Closely connected to the supernatural chakra, it helps us to interact with the energy of the body in multiple dimensions.
When moonstone is used in your practices, expect to feel a world of possibilities open up to you.
Auric & Nephrite Jade
The auric chakra is the shield that surrounds the body that encapsulates the very essence of the person. This chakra is closely connected with creativity which reflects the authentic self.
Nephrite jade helps to balance and cleanse the aura, allowing this authenticity to shine through.
Nephrite jade also serves to boost energy, giving more mental space for creativity and pursuits of passion.
