Chakra Healing with Crystals
There are 7 notes in music, 7 major planets in astrology, 7 colours of the rainbow, 7 traditional vowels (alpha to omega), 7 metals of the alchemical process (base lead to pure gold) and 7 crystal systems - hexagonal, rhombohedral, triclinic, monoclinic, orthorhombic, tetragonal and cubic.
The seven colours of the rainbow correspond exactly and in order with our chakra system. The same patterns can be seen in the ratios of music, geometry, nature and the proportions of the human body. They are the blueprints for the structure and nature of this world and have been the subject of investigation by mystics, yogis, seers and shaman since time immemorial.
Chakras are subtle, dynamic energy vortexes. Chakra kits can heal, balance and energise this much neglected portion of our make-up. The human body has 7 major energy centres, or chakras. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel or disc, indicating both the shape and dynamic nature of these subtle vortexes.

Physical organs and maladies in the area of a chakra can be treated with stones of the colour relating to that chakra. It is not surprising that our subtle energy centres are especially connected to the organs in their location. An example of this would be using green stones like chlorite or peridot to treat heart or chest conditions, as that organ is influenced by that chakra.
The logic is that as gross matter manifests from subtle energy, so strengthening the chakras in the problem area would be a good start. Another point is that while the organ may be healed conventionally, if an underlying energetic imbalance is not addressed, the condition will probably return. A man may have a heart attack and blood thinners keep him going, but if the causes are not addressed, stress for example, there's a good chance of more heart problems.

Chakra Healing Technique
Find a quiet place where you are unlikely to be disturbed for at least 10 minutes. Turn off your phone. Lie on your back and breathe deeply and slowly as this relaxes the body and slows physiological functions. If certain music or another technique relaxes you, include that at this point. Imagine a healing white light entering the body on the in-breath and all stresses and fears leaving the body on the out-breath. This prepares your body to receive maximum benefit from the vibration of the stones.
Place each stone on its respective chakra, the location of the chakra and correct colour are shown on the above picture. Sometimes people find this easier with the help of another person, or use tape to hold the stones in position.
As a prelude to meditation or spiritual practice, raise your energies by doing this upwards from chakra 1 to 7. For general health or to just "set you up" for the day, do from 7 to 1. This stage is an extra and not essential if you prefer to just relax or even snooze. The colour and energy of the stones naturally resonates with each chakra, restoring structure, harmony and balance to your entire system. Physiological change of the gross body can take up to 3 months, so regular use for this period will produce optimum physical results. Benefits to the energy system are much quicker.
1. Place both hands over each stone in turn and visualise light, the same colour as the stone, passing from the hands, through the stone and entering into the chakra until you can clearly visualise it as a large, glowing sphere of the same colour.
2. Place inward pointing clear quartz crystals around each stone. If you have many quartz points, they can be placed around each chakra stone, otherwise one chakra stone. Quartz naturally amplifies and structures any energy it contacts.
For physical problems, concentrate on the chakra closest to the problem area. An example of this would be the heart chakra for respiratory or heart problems. Similarly, concentrate on the chakra that governs qualities you may want to work on or develop - see the keywords below. An example of this would be working with the 3rd chakra to help clear emotional issues. Have a clear intention and mental picture of your desired result.
Remember to briefly cleanse all your crystals in cold running water after each session. Placing them on the earth or a quartz cluster occasionally, preferably in sunlight, will keep their energies strong and pure.
