Last week I talked about our chakras, and how important they are to providing a smooth, positive energy flow through our body. In many circumstances when a person is feeling ill or extremely fatigued, there is blockage occurring to the chakras. To prevent this from occurring, there are several ways that you can stimulate your chakra points and cleanse them from blockage and negative energy.
My own favored method of keeping my chakra points clear is to use crystals and gemstones. Your chakras are stimulated by energy vibrations, such as those that resonate from within stones and crystals. Using crystals that are strategically placed over the chakra points along the body, you can use these vibrations to free your chakras of blockage and restore a smooth energy flow.
There are certain gemstones and crystals that work best on specific chakra points. The following is a list of the different chakra points and what stones you can use on these areas.
The Crown Chakra: Clear Quartz, Diamond, Zircon
The Brow Chakra: Amethyst, Florite, Labradorite, Kunzite
The Throat Chakra: Lapis Lazuli, Azurite, Sodalite
The Heart Chakra: Rose Quartz, Jade, Aventurine, Watermelon Tourmaline
The Navel Chakra: Turquoise, Agate, Light Amber, Light Citrine
The Sacral Chakra: Carnelian, Yellow Jasper, Citrine, Tiger’s Eye
The Root Chakra: Garnet, Ruby, Obsidian, Hematite
To use these stones to stimulate and balance your chakras, lie on a flat comfortable surface. Place the correlating stone on the chakra point and relax. Breathe deeply, and envision negative energy and blockages fleeing your body. Envision a smooth energy flow running between the chakra points. Open yourself up to feel the resonating vibrations from the stones, which are helping to restore positive balance. You can also put on some calm and relaxing music, and musical notes can also resonate within your body and help to further provide positive energy.
There are also other ways that you can stimulate and cleanse your chakras that you may prefer to use over the above method, or combine with the above method for optimal results. Certain scents are connected with each of your chakra points, so burning incense or candles with these scents can also help to improve energy flow between the chakras. Many people find that bathing in sea salts with candles representing the elements or colors of the chakras help to maintain energy flow.
Yoga is an absolutely wonderful exercise that stimulates and opens chakras and offers the practitioner a variety of other health benefits as well. There are certain yoga movements that specifically target chakra cleansing which can be extremely beneficial to the rest of your body that you may also consider looking into. If you’ve never experienced the benefits of yoga, I highly recommend purchasing a book on the practice, taking a class or finding a yoga video that you can use in the comfort of your own home.
Some people choose to wear jewelry with the stones that are used to resonate with each of the chakras. This is a good practice and can provide some benefits, but is not nearly as efficient as placing the stones directly on your chakra points. If you choose to wear such a piece of jewelry, I suggest that you still make sure and practice some other method of chakra cleansing as well.
Ideally, to keep your energy flows moving sufficiently, I would recommend performing a chakra stimulation and cleansing at least once a week. In our modern society with many of the pollutants and day to day stresses that we face, our senses can become dulled quite quickly and energy flows blocked as well. If nothing else, I encourage you to at least perform such exercises monthly, so that energy flows do not become to badly blocked. However, I have almost no doubt that once you perform your first chakra cleansing and discover how great it makes you feel, you will be performing these exercises as often as possible.
