Our bodies have a natural flow of energy that can have a profound effect on our lives. This energy moves through spiritual centers called chakras; each of which has its own purpose and location in our bodies. Sometimes stress or other factors can cause our chakras to become blocked, which can disrupt the energy flow and put us off-balance. This can result in emotional or physical problems. Chakra stones are helpful tools you can use to clear your chakras and regain balance.
1. Choose Your Stones
When using chakra stones, you can either choose to cleanse your entire system or focus on one chakra that you are having trouble with. Each type of stone has a different energy frequency and therefore has a different effect on your energy. Most are traditionally paired with a particular chakra they can positively influence. It is important to select your stones with this in mind.
2. Find a Quiet Place
The cleansing process involves a lot of focus, so you will need a place with few distractions. Find a place where you can lie down comfortably. A good option is to lay a yoga mat on the floor. This way, you’ll be physically grounded and lying flat, which is good for balancing the stones. Before you begin, make sure you place the stones within reach and can easily tell the identity of each stone. This makes it easier to pick up a new stone without disturbing the ones you’ve already placed.
3. Get Comfortable
Lie down. Make sure you are comfortable. If this means getting a blanket, pillow, or turning on a fan, do so. You don’t want to be distracted by physical sensations. During this process, it is important to focus on your spiritual energy.
To help you connect to your body’s energy, empty your mind. Try to sense the energy in each of your chakras. Think about how it feels—if it’s warm, electric, or undulating. If you are having trouble blocking out the external world, try some deep breathing or other meditative exercises to get you into the right frame of mind.
4. Lay the Stones
Once you feel aware of your energy, begin laying the stones. You can either start with the root chakra and work your way up or start with the crown chakra and work your way down.
Remember that there is no need to rush the process. As you place each stone, try to focus on the chakra it is paired with. Visualize the energy of the stone moving into and through the chakra.
If you are clearing all of your chakras, spend some time meditating once all the stones have been placed. Visualize the energy flowing through each chakra in the direction you laid the stones. Continue this until you feel a sense of balance or rightness, or until the stones fall off your body.
6. Remove the Stones
When you’re ready, remove the stones in the same order you placed them. Before putting them away, be sure to clear them by blowing into them, washing them in cool or salt water, burying them, or exposing them to moonlight.
7. Spend Time in Contemplation
Before you re-enter the bustling outside world, spend some time in quiet contemplation. This can be as simple as writing in your journal, drinking a glass of water, or sitting and thinking about your experience. Try to imprint in your memory what this sense of balance feels like, so you are better able to recognize if your chakras are blocked in the future.
8. Use a New Intuitive Chakra Kit
Utilizing a chakra kit can be a great way to learn new readings and incorporate the act of chakra balancing.
