Using chakras, colours and crystals for healing and general wellbeing does not have to be complicated and can be as simple as matching a crystal and/or a colour to the corresponding chakra colour.
To ensure our chakras are operating at their peak, we need to balance them regularly and to do this we can use colour and crystals. In the beginning, the easiest way to work with chakras and colours is to match each chakra to a similar coloured crystal. Once you become more proficient working with colour and with crystals, you will see that the colour of the crystal, or colour in general, does not have to match the colour of the chakra but for now, this is the easiest way to get started.
As each chakra is responsible for maintaining the health and wellbeing of different areas of our emotional, physical and spiritual selves, it is important to keep these energy centres functioning at an optimal level so that in turn, we are also operating at our best.
When working with colour, just think about the colour of the chakra you want to work with. Every colour vibrates with its own unique energy so use that colour in the form of the clothing that you wear, the foods that you eat, the colours you can display on your screen saver and in the colour you can see around you everyday in nature and in your decor. Just surround yourself in that colour for as long as it feels “right”.
Crystals can also be used in the same way and also vibrate with their own unique energy so just choose a crystal that matches the corresponding chakra colour and wear it as a pendant, sleep with it, use it in a crystal spray, carry it in your pocket or even pop it in your bra! The closer the crystal is worn or carried to the corresponding chakra the better the result will be.
