Why a Chakra-Focused Crystal Grid is Sexy

Sexy? YES! B/c squeaky clean balanced chakras are sexy. Yes INDEEDY!!

There are so many of ways to invite sexy health & vitality into our bodies & on several different levels: emotional, physical & spiritual. So, how about a novel way of working with your chakras? Hmmmmm?

I love using crystals to work with the energy of our chakras. Yeah, yeah…most of us know that crystal healing involves working with crystals & the chakras in a physical way, but I’d like to present a slightly different way here today.

Several years ago I actually had a student who created a chakra crystal grid!

Now, I’m the self-proclaimed Queen of Crystal Grids…but this was new to me. I had never thought of doing this before! BTW, I’m always so grateful to my students for teaching me so much. It’s through their eyes & minds that I become a better teacher…but I digress!

So I thought this was a wonderful idea. (She was kind enough to allow me to share this photo over the years of her lovely solar plexus crystal grid):

Genius! Absolutely brilliant!

See, she was having problems with her solar plexus. We had talked about different ways of balancing the solar plexus & doing the chakra balancing as I had taught her in the course.

After having learned how to work with crystal grids in our Certified Crystal Healer course, she decided all on her own:

“You know what? I’m going to do a crystal grid to balance my solar plexus, to balance & reclaim my personal power.”

Yep! That’s sexy.

Here’s what she did step by step:

  • printed out a solar plexus Sanskrit symbol in yellow. She used that as her crystal grid template (placed under the black cloth above)
  • used citrine & tiger’s eye to make the crystal grid
  • also printed out another picture of a chakra symbol & put that in a little picture frame
  • added a yellow lemon-scented candle
  • used essential oils that vibrated with the solar plexus chakra: lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, grapefruit (she used these to anoint the crystals, candle, the cloths, etc.)
  • added a picture of herself (placed under the center stone)
  • hand-wrote down a solar plexus affirmation. Similar to: “I have a healthy self-esteem. I am strong-willed. I express myself with confidence.”… affirmations that help strengthen the solar plexus & she placed that in the center of her crystal grid.

She activated it & everyday she would sit nearby & do a little meditation with the grid; just working with it for a few minutes, giving it a little TLC, a little care & some attention & emotion. That’s how I always recommend you work with a crystal grid. (P.S. If you want to learn more on how to do that, I wrote a book about it). ;)

After about just 1 week, she was so excited with the result she had gotten from doing this, she emailed me the pictures & told me what she had been doing. She said her confidence had bloomed & she was feeling so strong in her solar plexus. Her digestion had also greatly improved (a direct link to your solar plexus chakra). She felt that it had opened, cleansed & balanced & was channeling her full inner-strength!

She goes, “This is so great you need to tell your students about this!”

I was blown away & absolutely amazed. I thought it was the greatest idea ever; diving into the crystal energies & tapping into the power of a crystal grid to clearly convey your intention to source energy! Getting Source Energy in on the whole thing, communicating her clear intention across space & time, directing energy appropriately. POWERFUL STUFFS!

Balancing Chakras using Crystals, Part 3

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healing 11 Comments

Ready for Part 3 of this Chakra Crystal Healing Blog Series?

In case you missed…Part 1 is here & Part 2 is here.

After discussing those 2 parts the next question I get is:

How do we go about balancing our chakras using crystals?

Let me start by saying that the methods I discuss here are certainly not the ONLY methods or the “right” way.  Ancient Japanese saying ~ “There are many paths up the Mountain, but the view of the Moon from the top is the same.” :)

Also, please know that you do not need to have someone else do chakra balancing for you…you can do your own chakra crystal healing sesh, no problemo. In fact, I do this all the time for myself. But, but , but!!…I do love getting crystal healing sessions done by a professional Crystal Healer & I HIGHLY recommend it. That’s the ultimate! If you’ve never had a professional crystal healing session…see if there’s someone in your area & gift yourself with a booking. You won’t regret it!

OK, so let’s get on with it. Please note that what I’m presenting here is a very basic step-by-step method. I have not included all the correspondences for the chakras, the why’s & hows, foundational info & special nuances  that I teach in our Certified Crystal Healer Course. But this is a great place to start:

  • Create some ambiance or sacred space for yourself were you won’t be disturbed for at least 20 min. Have some relaxing or new age music on, light some safe candles, burn a little bit of incense or diffuse some essential oils, have a comfy spot to lie down
  • Lay your chakra stones out by your side: 1 for each of the 7 main chakras in their color coordinated order as discussed in part 1. An inexpensive tumbled set like these work great (& you can use the code HM10 to save 10%) . Also include a grounding stone: my favorite is a nice shiny black tourmaline chunk. You can also use smokey quartz. Some people like to use hematite. Others prefer loadstone; your preference. Oh yeah! Have a glass of water nearby for later as well.
  • Lie down  & place your grounding stone between your feet, just six inches below your feet; this is considered our Earth Star Chakra (technically not 1 of the main chakras but known as a “transpersonal chakra“). This is going to be the 1st crystal you place  & the last crystal you’re going to take off
  • Then continue placing the rest of your stones, placing the corresponding stone directly over each of your 7 chakras.  You can use a chart like the 1 on the right to determine approx. where each chakra is located. OR this is 1 that I recommend to my students
  • Chakra balancing can be as short as 15 minutes or you can go half an hour or more…whatever feels comfortable. Your goal here is to get active with it. Beginning with the root chakra & moving up, visualize each chakra, 1 at a time; each colored chakra spinning, a nice healthy balanced spin, not wobbly…all while focusing on what the chakra represents & corresponds to. You don’t want to see dark patches or heavy black shadows or a chord coming from the chakra. That means there might be some attachments there, debris…stank junk needing to be cleared out. That’s a sign that chakra needs more focused attention & remedies. Your mental focus at this time should be on the positive attributes of that chakra. Focus on dissolving any physical problems or any emotional blockages, seeing them visually dissolving away. If you’re not very visual, then feel the problems & blockages dissolving. Sense what it would feel like to be free of those attachments! Imagine what it would be like to be so happy that all those issues are gone.
  • Once you’ve completed clearing all 7 main chakras you can begin to end the session with grounding. This is a very important step. PLEASE don’t skip it! The purpose of grounding is to make sure you feel stable & centered; well-grounded to Mother Earth. See, you might think that you feel OK, but when you sit or stand up you may feel a little woozy & light-headed. So, at the end of any chakra session, leave that earth star chakra stone (just below your feet) in place for no less than 5 minutes…or maybe even 10 minutes if you’re feeling really kind of floaty-flighty. Also do some relaxing grounding breaths with slow deep breathing. Now, go ahead & drink your glass of water while you’re still seated to further help ground yourself. If after 10 or 15 minutes you still feel out of sorts, pick up the grounding stone & carry it with you until you start to normalize & you eventually will.
  • This whole un-grounding thing might sound a little “out there” for you, but after doing a lot of crystal healings & my students telling me about their crystal healings, I’ve determined that this is a very common occurrence. The energy really gets moved around when we’re doing this sort of work; removing stagnant energy or blockages, energy is moving all over the place…it’s the sort of thing to be expected when we do this kind of work. But the more often you do it, the better balance you’ll be in & the less jarring it will feel each time. It’s all a part of recalibrating your energy body, getting back to balance…part of a sound energetic hygiene plan.

    Just like working out, right? ‘Cept I look forward to a chakra session much more than I do a work out. ;)

    I hope you enjoyed this Crystal Chakra Healing Blog Series. If you know someone who may be interested or may benefit from this info, share this post with them… I hope this will inspire more people to become aware of & care for their chakras.♥
