Rock Your Chakras

Aura-Clearing Crystals

The chakras are swirling vortexes of light, color and vibration. Your chakras absorb the energy of your surroundings and project energy into your aura as a psychic shield.

The best nourishment for the chakras and aura come from the five basic elements (air, fire, water, earth and ether), from the sun and moonlight and from certain sounds. That is why it is so important to spend time in nature if you want to stay healthy and feel happy. However, it can be difficult for many of us to do that every day.

What can you do, then, to strengthen your aura and chakras? Bring nature indoors through plants with large leaves, listen to classical music or mantras and use crystal therapy to energize each of the seven chakras. Here is a chart of the chakras and the crystals that correspond with each chakra:

1st chakra - Red Jasper (root, red, survival, vitality, grounding)
2nd chakra - Carnelian (spleen, orange, emotions, intimacy)
3rd chakra - Citrine (solar plexus, yellow, willpower, knowledge)
4th chakra - Green Quartz (heart, green, love, forgiveness, harmony)
5th chakra - Sodalite (throat, blue, wisdom, speech, creativity)
6th chakra - Amethyst (third eye, indigo, imagination, memory, self-realization)
7th chakra - Clear Quartz (crown, violet, meditation, vision, bliss)

Once you have bought and cleaned your crystals, lie on the bed or a yoga mat and place each crystal on your body. Place red jasper between the thighs, carnelian four fingers below the navel, citrine on the stomach area, green quartz on the sternum, sodalite at the base of your neck, amethyst on the forehead and clear quartz on the pillow or mat above your head. Then, as you relax, meditate on the chakra mantras, which are, from the first to the seventh: Lam, Vam, Ram, Yam, Hum, Om, So Ham. Feel the healing energy of the crystals imbue your chakras and your aura with light and well-being.
