      Chakras & Auras: A Crystal Healing Approach
      A brief introduction into the energy system of the body and how to heal and balance it using healing stones.
      October 20th 2011 - Chakras are vortices of energy
      found in the aura, or energy field, of the human body. These energy
      centers act as satellites to the universe, taking in energy, using it to influence the mind, the body, and the spirit, and then returning it
      back to the universe. Each chakra rules a specific section of the
      physical body, specific emotions, and certain aspects of one’s spiritual self. There are seven major chakras found along the spine, but there
      are many other minor chakras located all throughout the physical body.

      In crystal healing, the seven chakra system is most commonly used.
      However, there are many minor chakras that can be used under particular
      circumstances. In fact, all of these chakras are influenced by the
      crystal's healing energy during a healing session, but the energy is
      typically more precisely directed to the body's seven main energy
      centers. By placing crystals on the chakras, one can use the healing
      vibrations given off by the crystal to correct any imbalances within the
      chakra.

      Typically, crystals are associated with specific chakras based on their
      color, but this is not always true. Some crystals have other inherent
      properties that allow them to be used on chakras other than those that
      are associated with their color. These exceptions can be discovered
      after research or intuitive insights about additional properties that
      the crystal may have. These associations may even vary from person to
      person so it is important that one takes time to connect with a
      particular crystal before placing it on the body.
      Please Note: The seven most commonly known chakras have been numbered
      1-7. Other minor chakras have been bulleted. This listing appears in
      order from the area below the feet toward the area above the crown of

      Crystal Layout to Activate the Chakras:
      In this layout the healer should place a stone of the corresponding
      color on each of the seven main chakras. This exercise will open the
      energetic pathways within the subject and will also activate the major
      and minor chakras within the subject’s body. This technique is best
      used with tired or fatigued subjects, or those who are under a great
      deal of stress.

      To begin, you should choose a colored stone that is appropriate for each
      of the seven main chakras, using the color correspondences listed
      above.

      Beginning at the root chakra, you should place a red stone, such as Garnet or Red Jasper, at the base of the subject’s spine.
      Next, you should place an orange stone, such as Carnelian, on the
      subject’s sacral chakra, about two inches below the subject’s navel
      (about half way between the subject’s pubic bone and belly-button).
      Then, you should place a yellow stone, such as Yellow Aventurine or
      Yellow Calcite, on the subject’s solar plexus chakra, about two inches
      above the subject’s navel, between the subject’s belly-button and his or
      her breast bone.

      You should then move to the subject’s heart chakra and choose a green
      stone, such as Green Fluorite or Green Aventurine, and place it in the
      center of the subject’s chest.

      Next, you should place a blue stone, such as Blue Opal or Blue Quartz,
      on the subject’s throat chakra at the center of the throat.
      Then, you should place an indigo (dark blue) stone, such as Lapis Lazuli
      or Sodalite, at the subject’s brow chakra, located between and slightly
      above the subject’s eyes.

      Finally, you should place a violet stone, such as Sugilite or Amethyst,
      at the subject’s crown chakra, located on the top of the subject’s head.

      If terminated crystal points are used, the terminations should face toward the subject’s crown.

      If you do not have enough colored stones to use, or if you would prefer
      to use clear quartz only, the quartz crystals may be used without other
      stones. The quartz should be programmed to the color of each chakra
      before being placed on the subject’s body.
      After the stones have been placed on the body, you should infuse each
      chakra with energy by placing your hands just above each stone. To
      infuse a chakra with energy, you should bring white light energy in
      through your crown chakra and pass it through your hands to charge the
      area with energy from the universe. To bring white light into your
      body, you should be grounded and centered. Then, you should visualize
      your crown chakra opening and, as you inhale, visualize a stream of
      universal light beaming into the crown of your head. You should then
      exhale and push the light down through the palms of your hands. You can
      now transfer this energy into the subject.

      You should begin this energy-infusion at the brow chakra, and then you
      should move to the crown chakra. After this, you should move to the
      root chakra and continue up the spine to the sacral, solar plexus,
      heart, and throat chakras. You should then again infuse the brow and
      crown chakras with energy. You should spend at least three to five
      minutes at each chakra or until you intuitively feel that there is
      sufficient energy at each chakra.

      Crystal Layout to Balance the Chakras:

      This technique can be utilized to balance the energy of each chakra and
      is particularly best utilized with subjects that suffer from anxiety,
      anger, ADD, or a great deal of stress.

      To begin this technique, repeat the laying on of colored stones from the
      previous exercise, but stop before beginning the energy-infusion
      technique. Then, return to the root chakra and place a stone of the
      complimentary color next to the stone that has been placed at each
      chakra. Work up the chakras, beginning at the root and moving up toward
      the crown, using the following colors:

      • Root Chakra: Green stone
      • Sacral Chakra: Blue stone
      • Solar Plexus Chakra: Violet stone
      • Heart Chakra: Pink stone and Red Stone
      • Throat Chakra: Orange stone
      • Third Eye Chakra: Red stone
      • Crown Chakra: Yellow stone

      If you do not have enough colored stones to use, or if you would prefer
      to use clear quartz only, the quartz crystals may be used without other
      stones. The quartz should be programmed to the color of each chakra
      before being placed on the subject’s body.

      The stones in this technique should not be infused with energy.
      Instead, they should be left to transmit healing, balancing energy into
      the subject’s aura and subtle bodies. The crystals should be left on
      the body for approximately twenty minutes or until you intuitively feel
      that the subject has absorbed the healing energy.

      The most important thing to remember as you are placing stones on the
      subject’s body is that the stones should all be aligned with the
      subject’s spine. This assures that the energetic channels are properly
      opened.

      If you find it difficult to remember the correspondence between color
      and the chakras, you should try to memorize the following acronym: ROY
      G. BIV (i.e. like a man’s name).

      R (Red)
      O (Orange)
      Y (Yellow)

      G (Green)

      B (Blue)
      I (Indigo)
      V (Violet)

      The chakras also correspond to particular auric realms (layers of the energy body).

      Please Note: This listing appears in order from the innermost layer toward the outermost layer of the aura:

      -Physical Body
      -Etheric Body
      -Emotional Body
      -Mental/Vital Body
      -Astral Body
      -Etheric Template
      -Celestial Body
      -Causal/Ketheric/Intuitive Body

      An Exercise for Aura Health:

      You should strengthen and protect your aura in various everyday life
      situations. You should especially strengthen the aura if you know that
      you will encounter an individual that will drain your energy, as this is
      extremely detrimental to the auric body. This should also be done if
      you know that you will have to spend time in a negative energy
      environment or deal with a situation surrounded by negative energies and
      emotions.

      To protect the aura, you should close off your energy body to others by
      engaging in the protective posture (feet crossed at the ankles and with
      thumbs and fingers touching).

      To strengthen and energize the aura, you can undertake the nostril
      breathing technique. In this technique, the breath is used to
      strengthen the auric field and to balance the mind and the physical
      body. This technique is performed by alternating your breaths,
      breathing in through one nostril and then out of the other.

      To begin the technique, hold the nostrils between your thumb and index
      finger. Place your right thumb and finger over your nostril (without
      squeezing) and exhale. Then connect your tongue to your palette just
      behind your front teeth. Next, press your thumb against right nostril
      to close it and inhale through your left nostril for approximately three
      seconds. While keeping your right nostril closed with your thumb,
      press your index finger onto your left nostril. Your nose should now be
      closed between your thumb and finger. Keep your nostrils pinched shut
      for approximately 15 seconds. If 15 seconds is too long for you, then
      reduce the time limit to amount that you feel comfortable with. Now,
      remove your thumb so as to open your right nostril, but continue holding
      your left nostril closed with your index finger. Slowly release your
      breath through your right nostril for approximately three seconds.

      Remove your right hand from your nose and place your left hand on your
      nostrils with your thumb pressing on your left nostril. Inhale through
      your right nostril for approximately three seconds and press your left
      index finger onto your right nostril, so as to close it. Hold this
      breath for approximately 15 seconds. Then, remove your thumb to open
      your left nostril, but continue to press your right nostril closed with
      your index finger. Slowly release your breath through your left nostril
      for approximately three seconds.

      Repeat this exercise, while alternating nostrils for approximately three to five repetitions.

      To purify the aura, you can perform the cleansing vortex exercise. In
      this exercise, you should visualize a whirlwind of purifying, healing,
      white light which surrounds the entire auric body (beginning at the
      Causal/Ketheric Body). You should then visualize this whirlwind
      removing all negative energy and transmuting it into positive energy.
      Then, you should visualize that the vortex departs into the earth and
      this positive energy is released into the earth for the good of all
      beings.

      Once the aura has been strengthened, protected, and cleared, you are ready to absorb the healing energy of the crystals.

      This process should be followed by a mindfulness meditation exercise and focused breathing.
