Choosing Crystals for Healing

Choosing Crystals for Healing published on No Comments on Choosing Crystals for Healing


So you’re at a big crystal & mineral show, or the Sunday market, or at a specialty crystal shop and you want to buy a crystal… but which is the right one?

The best place to start is by identifying what is it you’d like to have remedied and the affiliated Chakra. The Chakras (Sanskrit, “wheel”) are seven major energy centers of the body starting at the root and ending at the head following the centerline of the body. Chakras are part of the subtle body where life force energy flows through the body’s channels. Each Chakra governs different physical organs, emotional and mental states.

When the concept of Chakras and the energetic system based on them was brought over to the West, the colors associated with them were simplified to the most dominant color.


The simplest way to choose a crystal is based on the color of the chakra related to the issue you would like to address.
1st Chakra – The ROOT

Primary color is red, also black
Crystals like Garnet or Onyx, Red Jasper

2nd Chakra – The Sacral
Primary color is orange
Crystals like Carnelian, orange calcite

3rd Chakra – The Solar Plexus
Primary color is yellow
Crystals like Citrine, Tiger eye, Yellow topaz

4th Chakra – The Heart
Primary color is green, also pink
Crystals like Rose Quartz or Jade or Aventurine

5th Chakra – The Throat
Primary color blue.
Crystals like Turquoise or Sodalite

6th Chakra – The Third eye (or brow)
Primary color is dark blue or various shades of dark blue.
Gemstones like Lapis Lazuli or Amethyst

7th Chakra – The Crown
Primary color is purple; also colorless (clear) or white.
Gemstones like Amethyst or Clear Quartz

Once you have chosen a crystal, hold it in your hands and see how it feels. The way crystals cause effect and positive change in you body is through resonance. A crystal that feels good is resonating in a harmonious way with your own energy field and subtly causing balance.

There are many, many crystals that cause a variety of effects and can be used in many ways. Take your time to get to know them and their many uses.

Heightened Sensitivity

Heightened Sensitivity published on No Comments on Heightened Sensitivity


I realize that may of us, myself included, have a heightened sensitivity to our environment. What that means, as a highly sensitive person, your nervous system picks up a lot more information than the average person about what’s happening around you.

This phenomenon isn’t something that’s readily addressed in our culture and only recently in science. Often we don’t realize how different our highly sensitive experiences actually are because we don’t have a standard with which to compare them against.
Being sensitive, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by emotions or energy that isn’t your own and this can cause problems. Often it’s just easier to shut down because you don’t know how to process the information…

It is important to become aware of your unique situation, so you can learn to manage it effectively. An essential part of this is learning about the human energy field or aura, the subtle bodies, chakras, and other elements of our physical bodies, sensations, and energetic nature.

The human aura has appeared in pictures and paintings in a multitude of cultures throughout history. Often, it is depicted as a radiant light around the head, or emanating around the body. This electromagnetic field is the first line of defense so-to-speak when encountering external influences and energies. It is through this field that all the energies of the environment, electrical device energies, radio frequencies, and human interactions, pass through and affect us. Our aura contains our subtle energy bodies and has different colors that change depending on our spiritual, physical, and mental states. A lot of information about our environment and ourselves flow in and out of our aura.

It’s important to learn about the aura, the subtle bodies and other energy channels as well as understanding how your environment affects your health and well-being.

I will expand on the aura and subtle bodies in following updates.

When you have a deeper sense of who you really are and your sensitivities, then you can learn to make choices, which are most appropriate and even healing for you.
