Introduction to Chakra Stones

The chakra system is an ancient depiction of the 7 energy centers in your body. They all function at different vibrations with different purposes. But oftentimes, they lose their ability to harness spiritual energy. That’s where chakra stones bring a balance by realigning their energy centers.

So what makes chakra stones special?

Self-healing with stones is truly a rewarding experience – only if you’ve chosen the stones that perfectly suit you. You just can’t use the same set of stones for both root chakra and crown chakra.

Now even though you’ve selected all the stones right, do you have the proper discipline to use them?

So before I begin to explore the meaning of chakra stones, know this first.

Chakra stones were an indispensable part of ancient civilizations. But today, most people couldn’t access the gifts their life beholds for them.

Because living with materialistic pleasures is one reason. But also the little-talked knowledge of manifestation and healing abilities of stones.

In this guide, you’re going to learn everything you want to know about these wonderful stones and the right way to use, choose and place them. And believe me, you’re almost there to unlock the spiritual mysteries of your life!

With that being said, let’s take a look at the chakra stone chart to get familiar with the names of the crystals for each of the 7 chakras.

What Are Chakra Stones?

Chakra stone is a relic of the Earth that is an active source of metaphysical energy.  The energy that can heal your chakras.

Now if you ask a mineralogist or researcher, these stones are just a wonderful mixture of minerals having well-organized symmetry. But crystal healers see them differently, they see them as a tool of manifestation.

Chakra stones have been a cornerstone of many civilizations. As jewelry, they add beauty to your fashion.  As a Feng shui, they make attractive home decor. And as chakra stones, they aid in physical and mental healing.

Either way, these stones influence your energy field. Now you might have heard some science heads being critical about the metascience of crystals.

But on the other hand, you can’t deny the rich mention of crystals in historical scriptures and many religious books. See, our lives depend on both visible and invisible forces.

But what’s invisible doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Do you think there’s any scientific way of measuring your faith or feelings? Or any way to track happening or mishappenings in life?

Exactly, that pretty much explains what chakra stones are all about – Sacred healing, attracting wellness, and spiritual expansion.  Your emotions and inner expressions are associated with your 7 chakra points.

And working with the crystals can affect the way your chakras function. I guess you know how these chakras work, right!

So what are 7 chakra stones?7 chakra stones on wooden plate7 chakra stones are a set of healing crystals used mainly in meditation, fashion, and feng shui. Because of the variations in frequencies, they’re classified into 7 energy spheres on your body.

Chakra stones differ and resemble common properties with each other. Based on the formation, geometrical pattern, and color, they have both high and low intensity of frequencies. And these vibrations have been there ever since these stones took the crystalline form.

By now, you might have questions like, “what chakra stones do I need?” or “Which stones to use as chakra stones?” In the following section, I’ll break down that in a minute.

How To Use Chakra Stones

How do you think you can use chakra stones if received right now?

Maybe as jewelry or a necklace. Or as a tool in Reiki or Crystal grids. Perhaps a home decor. And.. How about Feng shui amulets?

Hmm.. too many uses with the same stones. Awesome isn’t it!

Whatever the purpose might be, using your first chakra stone shouldn’t be a complicated process. It’s an art when it comes to using in self-healing. Don’t worry if you’ve never been into crystal healing. Believe me, it’s quite easy.

All you need is to follow a few easy steps as explained in this article. But always remember that there is no room for healing with a closed mind.

And you just can’t leave it for the crystals alone to do all the work. Using chakra stones is like taking care of a plant that would yield fruits when the time is ripe. So it’s all about your patience and discipline with the chakra stones.

Now if you’re done with choosing your crystals, you’re good to go ahead. Knowing the type of crystals to use for specific purposes is only the first step in self-healing.

illustration of a man wearing chakra stone necklace and bracelet

But a big part of using them includes:

woman holding 7 chakra stones in her hand

  • Preparing for cleansing, charging, and programming
  • Preparing your mind to set your true intentions
  • Regular working out and maintaining a routine with your crystals
  • Most importantly, leaving no room for doubts but having a feeling of completeness

Using crystals is all about letting yourself surrender to your intentions. But understand this, you’re the only one to sense the feeling of accomplishment. No second-person should tell you if something is working out or not; unless you really need to seek out a professional energy healer.

An expert healer has a better understanding of crystals. With his or her help, you can speed up the process of using the crystals with precision and reap the benefits.

Can’t find a healer around you? Don’t worry.

If you can find enough time to educate yourself about crystals and to use them effectively, you may not need a healer. Believe me, you can use it yourself.

We generally hear that the only people who don’t find them useful are those who don’t keep up with the discipline.

Alright, let’s talk about how you’re going to use them.

woman holding 7 chakra stones in her hand

Make a list of crystals you’ve purchased and give each of the 3 days to settle into your body’s energy. Use them with corresponding chakra points and observe how you feel physically, spiritually, and emotionally. You may find some stones that induce subtle vibrations and some with no effect. And that’s okay.

Using specific stones differs from person to person, just like fingerprints. Some stones that suit you may not work for others and vice versa.

Next up, you may wear one stone for an extended period of time. Or perhaps you can wear multiple crystals at a time. But hold on!

You should avoid wearing the same stone twice or two different stones that resemble the same chakra. For example, either Amethyst or Quartz is effective for Crown chakra and it’s not a good idea to wear both of them.

Ideally, wearing up to 7 stones for 7 respective chakras is considered beneficial for optimum healing. And if you’re a beginner and using 7 stones seems intimidating, don’t worry!

Better get started with one or two stones. And as you get used to its energy, you may add up more stones.

You may also maintain a crystal journal especially when you’re starting out. It’s a great way to record your impressions over time. For example, journaling can be helpful to figure out different experiences with crystals and for the purpose, you’re using them.

Chakra stones cleansing

The very first step after you purchase your chakra stones is cleansing. Why do you need to cleanse your stones? Because their frequency is sensitive.

No doubt, when the stones are mined, they carry the purest form of stable energy. But once they get into human hands, they’re contaminated. And imagine the way these stones are stored and shipped together such that they get under the influence of each other.

That’s why it’s very important to get the stability back before using them. This means restoring the stones’ natural frequency. And to do so, you need to follow these proven yet simple ways to cleanse your chakra stones.

process of cleansing chakra stones

1. Smudging method

cleanse healing crystals with sage

You need a bundle of any of these plant items – sage, palo santo, cedarwood, sandalwood, or their combination. Light up the bundle and waft it around the bowl of stones. Let the stones fully smoke bathe for about 5 minutes.

2. Brown rice bowls

Traditionally, brown rice is an aura cleanser and also a room cleanser in many Eastern cultures. And burying your crystals with brown rice is a good old method for cleansing. So keep them buried for the whole day. Quartz and Selenite don’t get contaminated easily.

And they carry unruffled harmonious vibrations such that they can serve as a cleanser to almost any stone. Here, you just need to place them with your stones in a glass bowl and leave them for a day.

How to charge chakra stones

We often hear people using the term cleansing interchangeably with charging the stones. But they’re different. In order to charge chakra stones, you need to get your stones cleansed.

For some, charging the stones may not be a priority. But when you charge your stones after cleansing, you’re allowing the cosmic vibrations to amplify the frequency of the stones. Here are few simple steps to charge chakra stones:

1. Charging under Sun and Moon

chakra bracelet charging under the sun light

Charging the stones under the Sun gives it a burst of energy. Whereas the Moonlight radiates subtle energy that helps in deeper penetration of the cosmic vibrations.

You may leave your stones under the moon overnight. But never expose them under the scorching sun. The best time to charge under the Sun is during the morning hours – for about 10 minutes.

2. Charging under the eclipse

There is a spiritual belief that Solar or Lunar eclipse can have dramatic shifts of change. And if you’re looking for a transformational change in your life, you may try out charging under the eclipse.

Before the eclipse, find an open space where you can place your cleansed stones. Light a few white candles and place them around the stones. During the eclipse, express the intentions you want to manifest and hold onto it for 5 – 10 minutes.

3. Sound bathe

Tibetan bowl produces a uniform sound wave of high frequency that induces healing effects in the body. And you can use the same frequency wave to charge your stones.

When you rub a mallet against the rim of the bowl in a circular motion, it emits particular sound energy. You can feel a subtle sensation as if you’re enveloped within the wave.

And as you continue, place your stones near the bowl. The sound waves not only amplifies the frequency of your stones but cleanse inharmonic energy in your surroundings.

How To Activate Chakra Stones?

Call it a spiritual wonder or a phenomenon of science, the crystalline nature of the chakra stones carries metaphysical energy.

This energy not only heals but can hold affirmations in the form of vibrations. Do you mean record? Umm.. not exactly but something like that.

Activating the chakra stones means you’re getting them ready for any spiritual practices you’re going to perform.

And for that, you need to set the intentions you want to manifest. So when you’re done with cleansing and charging the stones, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Prepare yourself in a silent place and completely relax your mind.
  • Step2: Organize your thoughts or affirmations on a piece of paper.
  • Step3: Hold the Chakra stones and completely immerse yourself in the feeling as if you’re communicating with a conscious being.
  • Step 4: Visualize the healing energy of crystals syncing with your chakra centers in the form of impulses as it rises from the bottom of the spine (Root chakra) towards the top of your head (Crown chakra).
  • Step 5: Speak out the affirmations or mantras several times and feel the energy being absorbed into the stones.

Meditation With Chakra Stones

Although there is no scientific evidence, chakra stones are believed to aid meditation. But it’s not as straightforward as simply picking up and using the stones. 

In order to use them effectively, you really need to set a discipline. One of such disciplines is healing meditation with crystals

There are few steps you need to follow in order to start meditation using chakra stones.

Let me quickly explain to you the whole process.

Lie on your back or stomach. Place the stones according to the chakra points on the body. Close your eyes and visualize the color of the chakra one at a time. As you go through each of your chakras, feel the pulsating sensations on each chakra point.

Once it’s done, feel the flow of energy moving freely throughout your body.

Now if you have ever thought about practicing Reiki with crystals, don’t hesitate to try. This Japanese technique of using crystals is a modern method of meditation and quite rewarding if you maintain the routine.

First, you need to place the stone on the table. Now rest your hands over it and visualize as if you’re harnessing the pure vibrations of the stones. Try out with each stone and focus on the key chakra points you want to heal. You can then hold them in your hands and do the same.

And if you have essential oils, feel free to apply them on crystals before use. Your meditation experience will not just be blissful but quite aromatic, as if you’re in a flower garden.

Isn’t this so simple!

Now there is one more way of practicing chakra stones meditation – using a Tibetan singing bowl. You may need an assist but the experience is going to bring you a sense of being in the serene Tibetan hills.

Chakra stones meaning

7 chakra stones and their symbols

Chakra stone is a sacred tool of manifestation. It is a means to rebalance your chakra energies. Probably you’ve seen some women wearing a beautiful crystal necklace. Or you might have heard in yoga classes. There is something extraordinary about the meaning of chakra stones.

They are ancient relics of the Earth that took millions of years to form.

And because of their uniform mineral composition and properties, they possess pure and stable vibrations.

Some naysayers often develop false theories around the crystals such as pseudoscience. But that isn’t true. It’s even wrong to define stones under medicine.

Also, there’s nothing like the powerful magical crystals as shown in the fairytale movies.

Rather, they reflect the nature of the metaphysical world. And it won’t be wrong to call it spiritual science. What do you think?

Anyways, this debate is not important. What matters here the most is the real meaning of chakra stones.

Everything in the Universe holds unique vibrational forces. And we’re not exceptions. A person who is kind, energetic, and passionate carries balanced vibrations. On the other hand, people with lower vibrations radiate anxiety, envy, and chaos.

You can’t see or measure such vibrations. You never know how some incidents can affect your perception and consciousness of everything around you.

And this is the reason chakra stones mean so much to you.

No, these stones aren’t scientific tools or any medical prescription.

But yes, they’re a consistent reminder to surround yourself with its pure energy whenever you’re at unease.

Chakras are the swirling energy centers that maintain the flow of energy.

And chakra stones closely resemble each center in your body.

Your chosen stones not just help to clear the chakra blocks but let you channelize the healing abilities throughout your body.

And when that happens, you understand the meaning of chakra stones. You learn that your true belief and abilities were always within you but hidden because of bad worldly experiences.

Let’s understand more about these stones in terms of color, chakra types, and their symbols.

Chakra stone meanings and colors

7 chakra stones and rainbow colors

What does color have to do with our choices?

Humans are gifted with the ability to figure out a wide spectrum of colors. We all have emotions or experiences attached to a particular set of colors. And that special attachment is apparent when you pick your chakra stones.

There’s something in your subconscious mind that triggers thousands of thoughts before making a choice. And initially, your choice is for the colors rather than the stones.

So the question is what does color have to do with the chakra stones?

If you know the science, crystals get their characteristic colors because of different compositions of minerals and compounds.

And our body is represented with different colors of the visible spectrum depending on certain aspects. For example, there are seven colors based on the chakra points and twelve or more colors based on the aura.

illustration of aura body

And based on different vibrations, these colors are closely associated with the colors of the stones. Therefore, this makes it familiar and easier to select your stones.

Here’s a list of colors that associate the fundamental properties of stones with your body’s energy:

  • Black and Dark brown – Grounding and stabilized energy
  • Red, Yellow, and orange – Stimulating the body both physically and emotionally
  • Green and Pink – Feelings and control
  • Blue – Self-expression, focus, intuition, and consciousness
  • Purple – Deeper states of meditation and sleep
  • White and transparent – Connection with the spirituality

NOTE: Although the color gives you a clue to its closeness with chakra’s properties, there are exceptions such as stones based on horoscope, birth date, or cultural significance.

Chakra stones symbol meaning

There is a deep meaning behind the Chakra stones symbols. As per Vedas, the reason behind their significance is to bring spiritual awareness.

These symbols are pretty useful when you’re practicing meditation or chakra healing. No matter if you gaze at them or see through your mind’s eye.

And if you’re a beginner, this would be extremely helpful as a reminder or self-guide to balance your chakras.

Before we go further, take a note that there is this one common circular shape in them. Can you guess why?

That’s because the circle represents energy that can neither be created nor destroyed – the infinite energy of the Universe. And we all are connected to this divine source of energy.

Symbols are powerful because they are the visible signs of invisible realities. -Saint Augustine

Chakra stones placement

You just can’t readily use the chakra stones once you’re done selecting them. Wouldn’t you think about the placements?

Chakra stones placement matters if you want them to function to the full effect. When it comes to therapy or meditation, you require to place them correctly on your body areas.

And when we talk about energizing your living space, Feng shui helps you manifest better results.

So by putting the crystals in the right order, you let them harness the energy and channel the healing vibrations to your body as well as your surroundings.

Okay, now I mentioned two ways of placing your stones – on your body and in your living space. Let’s talk about them.

illustration of crystal placement in home

Where to place chakra stones on the body

chakra stones placed on woman body

By now, I hope you understand the fact that your body is a bulk of electromagnetic energy consistently radiating the vibrations. And by very nature, this subtle vibration is well aligned with your energy centers. When you place the right crystals in the right areas, you allow them to sync with each other’s energy.

So how do place them correctly? It’s easy.

Lie down on your stomach or your back, whichever makes you feel comfortable. Now you may need an assistant to place each stone at the right points. So take your time to relax and calm your senses. Now ask him/her to place the selected stones in line with the chakra points.

  • Root chakra stones — the base of the spine (if you’re lying on your stomach) or above the groin area (if you’re lying on your back)
  • Sacral chakra stones — Below the navel or abdomen area
  • Solar plexus chakra stones — Above the navel or gut area
  • Heart chakra stones — Center of the chest or heart area
  • Throat chakra stones — Bottom part of your throat
  • Third eye chakra stones — Slightly above the middle part of eyebrows
  • Crown chakra stones — Above the head (can be placed on the ground near to the top of your head)

Close your eyes and focus on those 7 points on your body one by one. Starting from the Root chakra, feel the movement of energy like a river towards your Crown chakra. Follow the movement with deep breathing and completely surrender yourself to the moment.

Was that tough? Of Course not.

However, there is one more technique that may need you to work with a crystal healer – the crystal grid.

chakra stones positioned on a crystal grid

A professional healer has a good understanding of not just positioning but the shapes and sizes of crystals to be used. A crystal grid is nothing but a layout that is arranged as per sacred geometrical shapes.

During the process, the healer places some stones on your body and some on the ground. And the layout so formed creates energy sync and maximizes the intensity of healing upon the user.

Where to place chakra stones in the house

Besides the home decor, chakra stones can affect the way you feel inside your “home sweet home”. When you place chakra stones in specific areas, you can literally change your home into a sacred living space.

Imagine the way you feel visiting the shrines or holy places! Don’t you experience the shift in energy dynamics?

Exactly, you can bring home the same experience with the help of Bagua. If you’re not familiar with Feng shui, Bagua is simply known as the energy map.

According to ancient traditions, Bagua maps possess great importance in positioning your home/office environment. They bring protection from evil forces, mishappenings, and manifest health and wealth. So based on the layout of the map, there are 9 areas in your living space. And each of them focuses on specific virtues of life.

  1. Wealth and abundance
  2. Family and health
  3. Knowledge and self-cultivation
  4. Career and life path
  5. Helpful people and travel
  6. Creativity and children
  7. Love and relationships
  8. Fame and reputation
  9. Center and well-being

Feng Shui Bagua map Now besides the Bagua map, you can also practice the placements of stones with the help of crystal grids.

There are specific layouts for specific purposes in life such as relationships, wealth, wellness, etc.

So whichever method you try, chakra stones placement helps in curing energetic imbalance and bringing a fresh breath of life.

How do chakra stones work?

seven chakra stone clusters

Chakra stones healing works on the principle of metaphysical energy.

You might ask, “How in the world can a piece of rock do the healing work?”.

At first, crystals aren’t rocks. Well, they may resemble a rock but they’re formed off of geometrical patterns that possess an active source of energy.

It’s just like the Sun that showers its life energy to every species on Earth.

Take a look at nature. You see everything from living beings to non-living things, right! Every living being carries a synchronized pattern of energy. And anything that lacks pattern is just lifeless.

Now, have you ever realized there’s a space between your physical body and spiritual being?

This is exactly the place where metaphysical energy resides in the form of vibrations.

While using stones for healing the chakras, the vibrational forces induce healing properties of stones.

Yes, you read it right! The vibrations.

Some newbies might wonder if these stones stimulate rumbling sensations; as if you feel inside a vehicle.

At Least for normal people like you and me, nothing much happens.

They’re quite subtle in nature. The best way to describe it is like when you feel your pulses or sensations at specific body areas.

And your chakras are those core areas that we’re going to focus on here.

Everything possesses vibrations in a certain density. But the negative energy creates an imbalance in the pattern leading to emotional and physical stress.

Remember that chakras are not a separate part of you. They are susceptible beings, just like our emotions.

And all physical and ethereal aspects of us are nothing but energy. Because of imbalance in the densities and energy patterns, you suffer from poor health and lifestyle.

But when you use chakra stones for healing practices, you wield pure and stable energy.

Your chakra centers are really good receptors. But the problem is that they attract everything good or bad.

And without guiding forces, crystals themselves can do nothing. They need our conscious ability to direct the intention for goodness and filter the odd ones out.

Depending on the stones you choose and the purpose you have, you need to be imaginative.

It’s just like prayers or rituals people perform as per their faith. Your thoughts and feelings are the key drivers and can make stones work for you. They are the carrier for vibrations.

Anything that arises in the mind starts flowing as a sensation on the body. -Buddha

Keep this in mind – using stones for healing the chakras doesn’t work if you have negative or empty thoughts. This would only end you up complaining about the stones not working.

See, you should always be clear, optimistic, and unbiased towards your intentions. Without it, your stone is simply a rock.

How chakra stones work also depends on your psychic ability. It’s not about being early or late.

Some of you can be well receptive to its energies, naturally. Whereas some people may initially find it hard to feel the sensations. So in either case, you have to keep up with your faith in its healing energy.

Science says that a matter is 99.999…% empty space. And by now you know what makes up this space: the vibrational energy.

Just watch the people around you. Don’t you find something terribly wrong? Most of them are easily affected by the influence of other people, news, social media, or even their past.

And this makes their vibration very unstable.

On the other hand, chakra stones are super stable and remain unchanged.

If harnessed in the right way, they have the ability to recalibrate your frequency to the ideal state.

Though scientifically, there are no such instruments to measure them. But the values and influence of crystals are well inscribed in the experiences of different ages and ancient cultures.

What you can understand is that these subtle vibrations of crystals express themselves in geometrical patterns. Now imagine why some snow particles take the shape of snowflakes?

Those symmetrical designs on snowflakes can’t be magic, right!

It happens because they respond to some stable vibrational frequency of nature that takes a visible form. And it’s no wonder that crystals induce healing frequencies in the form of good karma, a disease-free body, and a positive mind.

Note that you shouldn’t assume the benefits the moment you choose the crystals. Each crystal needs to be worked upon to make it work for you. And only then do they become part of you.
