Chakras & Crystal Healing – A Beginners Guide

By Danni Saint

Chakra: from the ancient Sanskrit, meaning ‘Wheel’

So what does that mean? We have seven main energy centres in our bodies, each with its own vibrant colour, and these are what are known as the Chakras. You can imagine them like wheels of free-flowing positive energy. The seven Chakras run from the bottom of the spine to the top of your head – each with a specific colour and energy focus.

Below is our guide to the Chakras and their meanings. We’ve even included a short ritual to help you unblock your Chakras.

Chakra Unblocking Ritual

Here is a little ritual that you could do to unblock your Chakras.

Take a Gemstone colour-matched to Chakra(s) you would like to unblock. Place it between your palms and gently move it around to activate it. Find a quiet moment and a comfortable place to lay down. On the Chakra locations identified above, place the relevant Crystal. For example, Lapis Lazuli on your 3rd Eye Chakra or place Citrine on your Solar Plexus. Breathe deeply and envision the energy of the Crystal flowing into the area it is touching and spreading around your body. Consider the Mantras above and repeat them to yourself, either internally or aloud, with each inhale. Try to remain here for 5 minutes, or continue until you feel the need to move.
