Using healing crystals in your personal practice is a beautiful move. One of the ways you can unlock their power is by placing them at certain points all over your body and experiencing their effects.
The first step here is understanding a crystal body layout. While there are many from which to choose, let’s take a look at one that aligns with your chakras and their unique attributes.
The Root Chakra is strongly associated with grounding you. It brings you down to earth, giving you a sense of who you are when you’re truly alone. Often enough, we lose sight of this when we’re going about our daily lives.
When you’re considering where to place crystals on the body, there are specific stones that align with this area. These include Black Tourmaline, Garnet, Obsidian, and Red Jasper among other fiery crystals.
Linked closely to your sexual and creative energy, the Sacral Chakra is just below your navel. You will find that this area is also tied to your emotions and, perhaps most importantly, your emotional wellness.
When placing crystals on this area, you should focus on specific stones including Carnelian, Amber, and Rutilated Quartz.
Located near your stomach, you will find that the Solar Plexus Chakra is closely associated with feelings of self-esteem and confidence. If you’re feeling as though you need a boost, you should focus on this area.
Yellow colored stones tend to work best here. You should use Citrine Quartz, Golden Calcite and Golden Topaz, for example, when placing crystals on the body.
As the name suggests, the Heart Chakra is strongly linked to feelings of love, compassion, empathy and forgiveness. Should these traits not come naturally to you, you may need to work on this area.
Of course, when it comes to choosing where to place healing crystals on your body, you should make sure that they align with your chakras. That means choosing Apatite, Rose Quartz and Rhodonite for these areas.
Your Throat Chakra is tied to your individual identity and your inner truth. For that reason, it’s crucially important that you tend to this aspect of your physical being and become attune with it.
When choosing which crystals to use here, opt for blue-colored stones, such as Lapis, Azurite, Blue Lace Agate and Kyanite.
Supporting your awareness, perception and spiritual communication, your Third Eye is a highly powerful chakra. As you tend to this chakra, you will find that it increases your wisdom and connection to the Higher Power.
Use purple-style stones for this area of your body. Some of the options that you may include are Amethyst, Fluorite, Sugilite and Charoite
Your Crown Chakra is linked to your Kundalini Yoga awakening and the spiritual connection that you have. This is an inspiring and lifting chakra and one of the most powerful in the body.
When you’re placing crystals on the body here, you should choose white and golden tones. These may be Apophyllite, Gold Citrine and Selenite as well as similar stones.
