The seven chakras are a system of energy wheels that control the mind, body, and soul. While there are 114 total chakras in the body, the major seven chakras are used to heal the complete body in energy healing. Can you heal them by placing crystals? Where to place crystals on body for chakras?

Placing specific crystals on the human body opens and spreads healing energy around the seven chakras. As a result, physical, emotional, and spiritual healing occurs. Crystal chakra placement is an excellent way to enhance psychic abilities, intuition, truth, love, creativity, power, and balance.

In this article, we’ll discuss where to place your crystals on your body that are best, and their benefits, so you can try them on your own.

Understanding Crystal Chakra Body Layouts: Where to Place which Crystals?

Reiki practitioners and healers often use body layouts for numerous healing purposes with crystals. Technically, crystal chakra body layouts mix two energy healing techniques- Reiki and Crystal Grids.

Once you learn how to do the same, you can manifest your intentions.

I’ll explain where and how to place crystals on the body using a step-by-step guide. Let’s get started! 

  • Step 1: Getting to Know Chakras 

Take a look at the table below to understand the location of the seven major chakras, associated crystals, and where to place them on the body.

  • Step Two: Set the Crystal Grid

Crystal grids are based on sacred symmetry, connected by crystal frequencies. They are then activated by a powerful crystal wand that manifests your intentions.

While they’re mostly set on wood, paper, or soil, setting up a crystal grid on the body is an advanced technique for physical healing. 

Find a pattern to arrange the crystals on your body, such as circles, triangles, or pyramids. It’s good to pick a pattern that rhymes with your intention, crystal, chakra, or location.

  • Step Three: Apply Reiki Placements for Crystals

Reiki is the way of channeling healing energies for cleansing, charging, and healing. They’re placed on the chakra locations, as shown in the table above. 

  • Step Four: Meditate on It 

After placing the crystals on your body, based on layouts and Reiki, you should visualize healing energies from your crystal opening the targeted chakra in the body. 

  • Step Five: Get Started 

You can lay,or sit, down based on where you plan to place the crystal on your body. 

Remember to place crystals directly on the skin for quicker results. 

Finally, chant your intention aloud, or as a mantra, to activate your crystal body grid.

Where to Place Crystals on Body for Meditation? 

Do you know, over 200 million people meditate daily? And most people like to meditate while sitting rather than lying down. 

The best meditation crystals, such as amethyst, clear quartz, howlite, selenite, labradorite, and lapis lazuli, can be placed on top of your head while sitting down in the lotus position. 

On the contrary, place citrine, smoky quartz, red jasper, and other lower-chakra crystals in your lap, while laying down.

In a Nutshell

Crystals are placed on your body, based on the sacred symmetry of chakras. When doing it on your own, aim for once a week, or month, to keep your mind, spirit, and body in check.

Do you know some people carry crystals in their pockets, and even bras? 

Placing crystals on the body correctly, quickens chakra cleansing and charging for manifestations. For instance, keep a heart chakra stone on your chest, and a crown chakra stone on top of your head.

If you feel like changing the order of certain crystals, or limiting the body crystal grid to certain crystals, listen to your intuition over facts. 

Lastly, cleanse your crystals before and after crystal body rituals.
