Crystal Body Grid for Chakra Cleansing
Chakra Cleansing is VERY important. The Seven Chakras are centers of spiritual power or wheels of energy that flow through the body. They run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each chakra is associated with a color and has a physical and emotional aspect tied to it. When your chakras are aligned, balanced and cleansed, you feel energized and centered.
What is chakra balancing?
When you understand the energy centers associated with each of the seven chakras in the body, you’ll be able to connect on a deeper and more meaningful level during your chakra cleansing session. You will also have a better idea of which crystals to use for each chakra or energy center. To help you get started, we’ve included a few recommendations with our Chakra Cleansing Crystal Pattern, which is detailed later on in the blog.
Located at the top of the head, the crown chakra is known as the pathway to all other chakras. This is why many healers start with this energy center when practicing any chakra cleansing sessions. If you’re feeling lost or without a life purpose, try using crown chakra crystals like Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Moonstone, and Selenite, which will help balance and align this chakra center.
The next energy center is the third eye chakra, which is situated between the eyebrows just below the crown chakra. Associated with enhanced intuition and creative inspiration, you can cleanse this chakra with indigo-colored gemstones like Lapis Lazuli,Fluorite, and Sodalite. When clearing your chakras, the third eye is especially important for reawakening inner wisdom, which opens you up to self-knowledge and enlightenment.
Chakra cleansing should also include throat chakra healing, which helps support truthful and loving communication with yourself and others. For this energy center, we recommend throat chakra stones like Angelite, Sodalite, Aquamarine, and Blue Apatite, which should be placed on or near your throat.
If you need more unconditional love in your life, clearing your chakras should also include the heart energy center, which is situated on your chest. Green and pink heart chakra stones such as Rose Quartz and Aventurine are some of the best for healing and spiritual transformation, especially when combined with meditation.
Situated beneath the heart chakra is the solar plexus energy center, which is associated with confidence and courage. Yellow-colored crystals should be placed near the navel, which will help encourage feelings of creativity and personal power.
For opening and activating the sacral chakra, the energy center in the lower abdomen, we suggest using orange-colored stones such as Tiger’s eye, Carnelian, and Orange Calcite. Their powerful and vibrant energy will open up a renewed flow of passion and creativity within yourself.
The energy center linked with security and balance is the root chakra, which is also included in this chakra cleansing pattern. Keep this energy center open and balanced with stones known for their grounding and protective qualities, such as Hematite, Black Onyx, and Smoky Quartz.
Everyone gets his or her chakras out of balance or partially closed merely from trying to live in this modern, fast-paced life. This Chakra Cleansing Crystal Pattern will gently open, realign, cleanse and balance the energy flowing through the chakras. It won’t only heal your chakras, but it will also make everyday life a little less stressful!
Here are the crystals needed and where to place them:
- 6 Clear Quartz Stones | Place 4 around your body: 1 above the head, 1 beside left arm, 1 beside right arm and 1 below the feet. Hold 1 in each hand.
- 1 Clear Quartz Stone | Place near the crown of your head (7th Chakra)
- 1 Amethyst Stone | Place on your forehead (6th Chakra)
- 1 Sodalite Stone | Place on your throat (5th Chakra)
- 1 Aventurine Stone | Place over your heart (4th Chakra)
- 1 Citrine Stone | Place on your abdomen (3rd Chakra)
- 1 Carnelian Stone| Place over your spleen area (2nd Chakra)
- 1 Smoky Quartz | Place over your pubic bone (1st Chakra)
- 2 Hematite Stones | Place one near the sole of each foot (1st Chakra)
Lie on your back in a comfortable position and place all the stones in the correct places (according to the diagram). Clear your mind, relax and let the crystals do the work. For the best results, we recommend practicing this chakra cleansing therapy on a daily basis. In our experience, making a commitment to a wellness practice makes all the difference in its effectiveness. Think about it this way: you can’t expect to see results after being on a diet for two days; crystal healing is no different. It takes daily practice, patience, and dedication.
The outer pattern of Clear Quartz crystals forms a diamond shape, or two triangles set base to base. This activates the crystal energy by connecting the crystal at the top of your head down to the one by the left hand, then descends to the crystal at your feet, then up to the one in your right hand and finally ascends to join the crystal at the head again. The crystal energy flow will activate the inner pattern of stones on your Chakras and your chakra cleansing will be complete.
