How to Use the 7 Chakra Crystals? 10 Simple Ways 

Now you know why you should open the seven chakras with crystals. But how do you actually use a chakra crystal? 

While there are endless ways to use crystals for chakra, aura, physical, mental, and spiritual healing, I’ll tell you my ten favorite ways next! 

Jewelry 

First, most chakra crystals are available as rings, pendants, bracelets, necklaces, and even tiaras. So all you need to do to charge your chakra with crystals is by wearing the crystal jewelry on, or near, the chakra location.

The following table shows where to wear your crystal jewelry on the body:

Elemental Charging

Every chakra is associated with a specific element, such as fire, water, air, earth, light, space, and thoughts. So, you can cleanse and charge your crystal using energy rituals associated with their ruling elements.

Mantras and Affirmations

If you don’t connect with the seed mantra, write your positive affirmation. Then, hold the crystal in your hand and chant the mantra, or the affirmation, by the seven chakras.

Crystal Grid 

One of the most powerful ways to use chakra crystals is by creating grids specific to the seven chakras.

Sun and Moon Energies 

Sunlight and moonlight charging are simple, accessible, and easy ways to charge your 7 chakra crystals. But first, ensure your crystals are safe in the sun and overnight under the moon.

You can charge chakra crystals by holding them for a few minutes at dawn, dusk, new moons, full moons, supermoons, lunar eclipses, solar eclipses, and other special events. 

FAQ on 7 Chakras Crystals, their Meanings, and Uses 

If you’re just getting started with crystals, here are some tips and tricks to get started on the right foot.

What Crystal is Good for Chakras?

You already know from the above that every crystal is ruled by one or more of the seven chakras. So, you should use associated crystals for cleansing and charging chakras instead of randomly.

The only natural healing crystal that can open all the chakras at once is the Super Seven crystal because it’s made of seven crystals (each associated with one of the seven chakras). 

These seven crystals are – Amethyst, Goethite, Lepidocrocite, Crystal Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Cacoxenite, and Rutile. 

Which Stones are There in the 7 Chakra Bracelets?

Seven chakra bracelets are typically made from Black Obsidian, Carnelian, Tiger’s Eye, Green Aventurine, Turquoise, Sodalite, and Amethyst. 

But the selection of stones specific to chakras is based on the brand or seller. So they may substitute black obsidian with red jasper, or green aventurine with rose quartz, etc. 

How Many Chakra Crystals are There?

Humans have 114 chakras in total, which includes seven primary and several secondary chakras. The major chakras are Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown, being the primary chakras. Therefore there are 114 chakra crystals. 

How Do You Unblock Your Chakras?

You can unblock chakras using crystals, food, herbs, yoga poses, intentions, affirmations, karma, and lifestyle. But it’s better to amplify the power of meditation, yoga, affirmations, or chants with crystals. 

How Do You Choose Chakra Stones?

Beginners often find it hard to pick chakra stones with gentle and welcoming energies without help. If you feel lost, here are five steps to pick the right crystal for your chakras:

By Your Intention 

You can pick a healing crystal based on your manifestation or purpose

For instance, go for a Rose Quartz crystal if you’re looking for love. Alternatively, Amethyst is the best one for the crown chakra.

By Your Intuition

Your gut instinct, heart, vibes, or spirit might lead you to a crystal or vice-versa if you want to use chakra crystals. So, it’s good to pick crystals you’re naturally drawn to. You can learn about their chakras, powers, and ruling elements later.

By your Chakra Needs

Choosing crystals for your weakest, or strongest, chakra is good for flushing out negativity, or raising positivity. For instance, if you’re feeling powerless, get a Carnelian, because it awakens the life force energy. Alternatively, Turquoise is great for self-expression.

By Your Technique 

I love picking chakra crystals based on how I plan to charge the crystal. For example, crystal wands are great for grid rituals, tumbled stones for Feng Shui, mirrors for scrying (foretelling the future), and spheres for psychic abilities, etc. 

Also, choose crystals safe under the sun, in water, near the fire, and so on

By Your Zodiac Sign

As every zodiac sign has a power chakra, working on that first with its crystal is a good place to start. 

  • Root Chakra Crystals for Capricorn and Aquarius
  • Sacral Chakra Crystals for Aries and Scorpio
  • Solar Plexus Chakra Crystals for Sagittarius and Pisces
  • Heart Chakra Crystals for Taurus and Libra 
  • Throat Chakra Crystals for Gemini and Virgo 
  • Third Eye Chakra Crystals for Cancer 
  • Crown Chakra Crystals for Leo
