Another way you can work with your crystals…
& this is a really easy way with lots of benefits…
is with crystal chakra healing.
I have a whole lot of info on this so I’m going to break it up into a 3 part series. This 1st part is my fav. thing to do…break it down into the How & Why with some science thrown in for good measure. Ready? Let’s go!
The science behind crystal chakra healing
We’re going to talk about the 7 main chakras. We have many more than just the 7 main ones but these are the most familiar ones…the familiar main 7 chakras are the major portals or the major energy hubs on our body.
Each chakra has a corresponding color associated with it. The colors are really easy to memorize…they follow the color of the rainbow, which always follow the same order:
Remember from school? ROY G BIV?
OK, I can’t resist…(please don’t yell at me if you end up with an ear-worm)
That’s the same exact color sequence that the chakras follow. And its no coincidence that they’re exactly the same sequence. Its just science, Jelly Bean.
Each chakra is also linked with a specific body part, specific body function & certain emotions, among other correspondences. One book I HIGHLY recommend you get to learn more about this is:
In addition, each chakra has a specific vibrational frequency. See colors, or more specifically “light” in various frequencies that we can actually see with our eye balls is just a teenie tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum). The colors (light frequencies) arrange themselves in order of decreasing vibrational wavelengths. Of these specific light frequencies, red is the longer wavelength (lower frequency) & violet is the shortest wavelength (higher frequency). I haven’t lost ya yet, right? Stick with me here.
Actually…everything on the EM spectrum is a type of light. Just a little smidge of the spectrum is the visible light that we can see with our eyes. The chakras encompass all these colors that we can see. Each one has a very specific vibrational frequency.
In summary, each chakra has a specific vibrational frequency & a color that it expresses itself as.
These specific frequencies are aligned to certain known energies. This allows us to focus on one aspect at a time. For instance, if we want to zero in on anxiety & fear, we can focus our attention on the root chakra & improve it efficiently by just focusing in on that 1 particular chakra.
I’ve found chakra work to be very efficient & highly effective for clearing out all sorts so energetic imbalances. I’ve it heard over, over again…people saying things like,
“I’ve been going to therapy for a long time; going to see a therapist, a psychiatrist, etc. to work on my fear & anxiety issues.”
Not to belittle that at all. But if someone has been working on a specific issue for a long time…once that person addresses the associated chakra & works on clearing & balancing that chakra…most of the time the issue clears itself up much quicker by using chakra work alone or in conjunction with the therapy. Not to say this will work for everyone every time, but it’s certainly worth giving a try.
More Physics & Chakras?
As a former physics teacher, I can’t help but throw in more physics here. In my courses I teach the principle of entrainment when working with the chakras. This is a physics principle that basically says that energy of a higher amplitude will dominate & influence a similar frequency of a lower amplitude.
This is often demonstrated using tuning forks. When the tuning forks are tuned to the same frequency, if I rang 1 with a lot of energy (high amplitude) & then rang the other just gently (with a little bit of amplitude), the higher amplitude will dominate & influence the fork of the lower amplitude & it will get louder & raise its energy up (become higher amplitude) b/c the higher amplitude will dominate the lower amplitude.
Why do I bring this shiz up?
B/c we also will entrain with the higher amplitude energy.
If there is a similar frequency that comes into our environment & it happens to be of higher amplitude, it’s going to raise us up to match its frequency…to become a vibrational match.
Now…this is a big foundational brick of my teachings…a crystal is always going to be higher amplitude frequency b/c it has a more stable frequency in its inherent molecular structure. SAY WHAT?
So again…the reason for that stable frequency is it has a very precise atomic structure.
Sodium chloride molecule (salt crystal)…look at that precise crystal structure!
That’s what makes a crystal a crystal. A crystal has a precise geometric pattern in its molecular blueprint. Although we are human & we’re made of some crystals, we are not entirely crystalline. So, we are not as geometrically perfect as a crystal. Not even close.
Crystals are going to be in a higher amplitude energy field than us due to their geometric perfection. We’re going to entrain with the amplitude of their higher energy when similar frequencies are present.
OK, Geek! Get back to the chakras!
So, if you have a chakra that’s out of balance. For example, let’s say my third eye is completely whacked out. Not really…but just say…
I can take a nice amethyst natural point & I place that on my third eye.
The amethyst is of a similar vibrational frequency to my third eye but it’s higher amplitude energy, higher frequency, more stable because of it’s crystalline structure. Ya with me?
It’s going to vibrationally stabilize my third eye chakra. My third eye is going to entrain with that similar frequency. It’s going to move into resonance with the similar yet more precise & higher amplitude vibration of the amethyst.
Crystals have higher amplitude due to that geometric perfection…dueto that, they are going to clear out & balance our chakras, making them more stable, entertaining them with their higher amplitude energy. Thereby, changing the emotional & biochemical state of that chakra to the correct frequencies & also helping to maintain their stability.
Each chakra will entrain with that specific vibrational frequency of its color. For instance, the third eye chakra’s color is indigo,so it entrains with indigo.
This is certainly not the only chakra balancing method but it’s a very easy one; simply choose a crystal within the same color family as the chakra you’d like to balance. So for the third eye, indigo stones like lapis lazuli, iolite or amethyst are great to work with.

Or for the heart chakra, green aventurine, jade or green tourmaline would be perfect.
Luscious green aventurine tumblies.
Matching up the color is a pretty foolproof & simple way to go.
Now some people say,
“You shouldn’t match the color of the chakra to the stone because whatever color you’re seeing is actually the color that’s being reflected & not absorbed by the stone. That’s not actually the color of the stone.”
Then I’m like,
“Yup. And that’s EXACTLY what I’m looking for, because if that’s the light frequency that’s being reflected & bounced off, then that’s the color that’s bathing the environment of the chakra.”
That’s exactly what we want. Is it not?? I think it’s a great way to do it. Not to mention that I have confirmation from case study after case study as do my students. Color works, Baby!
OK, so that’s part 1. Hope I didn’t burn you out on the science. Part 2 will be about how to determine which chakras need balancing & Part 3 will be about what to do with the crystals.
