Healing Stones

<img src= Healing stones are very useful in helping to heal and balance chakra energy. Using them in meditation practice may help you find answers to what troubles you or they may give the strength you need to initiate solutions to problems.

Your chakra energy centers will also benefit from the use of healing stones because they both absorb and balance energy.

Chakra and its associated stone:

    7th Crown = Amethyst, Crystal, Topaz, Sapphire
    6th Brow = Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite, Indigo, Sapphire, Opal
    5th Throat = Aquamarine, Turquoise
    4th Heart = Emerald, Green Jade, Rose Quartz
    3rd Navel = Amber, Tiger’s Eye, Citrine, Yellow Topaz
    2nd Spleen = Moonstone, Carnelian, Tourmaline

    When you first acquire your new stones they need to be cleared of any previously accumulated energy. Here are some easy ways to do this:

      1. Store them in sea salt for a few days.

      2. Smudge with sage. (This is a traditional Native American technique for clearing negative energy.) The smoke from the smoldering sage will clear the healing stones of any accumulated negative energy.

      3. Place them under running water to wash away negative energy.

    Which Stones Are Right for You?
    How do you know which one is right for you? Well, just ask it! I know you may think it’s a bit bizarre to talk to a stone, but just ask in your mind as you hold the stone in your hand. Another way to tell if it’s the right stone for your needs is to simply hold it in your hand and you may experience some sensation from it. You may feel warmth or a slight vibration from the stone this is a good sign that the stone is meant for you.

    In some instances you may just be naturally attracted to a particular stone and that could mean it is what you need at this time. If you feel nothing but a cold stone then it’s safe to say it’s not the one for you.

    The Basics of Using Healing Stones
    For use on yourself simply lie down in a quiet place and hold the stone you’ve chosen in your hand, left hand for intuition and right hand for protection. Then just go into a state of meditation the stone will pick up and balance your energy.

    This is also a good practice for using clear quartz crystals. You hold them in both hands and place one crystal above your head and another below your feet as you are lying down. Take deep breaths to relax and quiet your mind.

    Use chakra related healing stones for chakra balancing and chakra clearing by placing the associated stones on each chakra location. Just lie quietly as in meditation and let the stones do all the work. You may experience physical sensations of warmth and/or vibration in certain chakra centers or you may experience emotions. Just let them come up, these emotions may be issues that need to be addressed or let go of. They are being brought to the surface for you to experience and resolve. This experience may also bring to you a wonderful relaxing state of mind or an inner knowing that everything is alright.

    I hope this has given you the knowledge you need to explore the healing energy of gemstones. Feel free to experience and experiment with these wonderful tools from the Earth. When you find the healing stones that are right for you, you will not only enjoy their healing effects but you will also experience the unique beauty in each stone.
