Chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates as “wheel.”
This term refers to swirling wheels (or vortexes) of energy located throughout the body.
There are seven main chakras located at points along the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head.
To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy. This invisible healing energy, called Chi or Prana, is a vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.
The 7-main Chakras correspond with organs and points in our endocrine system.
Energy, Chi, or Prana flow freely up and down the spine through each chakra. Ideally, the energy flows freely through the wheels but, in many cases, there can be blockages impeding the flow. This can cause many issues related to the chakra involved, a blockage in one can result in weaker or backed up energy in the flow which affects the chakras around the blocked or sluggish one.
Each Chakra vibrates to a different frequency which determines its color and function.
All physical imbalances begin the manifestation process in the energy body with specific issues being picked up by the individual chakras. If you’re able to heal at the level of the chakras, then in many cases you can prevent the dis-ease from becoming physical.
Crystals are an excellent ally in the healing process. They emit such stable frequencies while the human being does not. We exist in an ever-changing state of entropy, or disorder. We are easily thrown off-kilter by trauma and stress of all kinds.
When we introduce crystals into our energy field, our disorder entrains to the stability of the crystals which brings us into balance and healing.
How to choose a crystal for Chakra Healing:
There are many ways to choose the crystals to work with, I’m listing the top three.
Each healthy chakra has a color based on its frequency. One way to choose a crystal is to find the crystal or stone that has a matching color to place on the chakra allowing the frequencies to match.
- Properties and Meaning
There are many resources where you can learn about the different crystals and their healing properties. This is a good way to choose a crystal based on the issues you’re having. If in doubt, look it up.
My favorite way to choose a crystal, though, is to let my intuition guide me. I may be attracted to a stone for many different reasons, I try not to question it when one pops into my head. Sometimes the colors match the chakras and sometimes not. In my healing practice, I listen to and am always guided by my intuition.
My favorite Chakra Crystals

Red Jasper helps us connect with the Earth’s grounding energies, it helps develop physical strength and stamina.

It often responds to dark blue or indigo stones. My top two favorites are Tanzanite and Lapis Lazuli. Tanzanite helps you develop psychic powers and accelerates spiritual growth. Lapis Lazuli connects us to higher consciousness and aids in psychic ability, it is also protective and helps with dream work.
- The Crown Chakra is our connection point to the Divine
It often responds to violet or white or clear stones. My top two favorites are Amethyst and Selenite. Amethyst enhances meditation and connects us to our intuition. It helps us find the divine purpose within our dreams. Selenite is a high vibrational stone that helps open your crown chakra and connect you to even higher realms; the chakras that exist above our physical chakras.
I’m so passionate about this subject as I’ve seen the power of crystal chakra healing with my clients (and myself). I’m excited to announce I’m running a beta group for my upcoming group, “Crystal Chakra Immersion,” and am looking for 12 people to join at an extreme discount.
There will be knowledge shared, we’ll be going through each one of your chakras, and you’ll learn more about yourself and how to bring healing and balance to all areas of your life. This includes the crystals you choose, exactly how to work with them, the foods you eat, what you wear and many ways to enter into these powerful healing realizations.
Send me a message if you’re curious, as I’m taking only 12 people in the beta group.
