Last week I posted about Chakras and touched briefly how crystals are a part of balancing ones chakras. This week is all about crystals, the meaning, giving them a job to do, how to use them and their purpose. Every month since January 2015 my chakras that were unbalanced were Crown, Throat and Third Eye. So below are the crystals I bought at my last homeopathy visit to try to find balance and to remain balanced for the future.
As I continue to heal and recover I will learn about other beneficial crystals for my needs but these are the ones I need right now to find balance and open or unblock these three chakras. I do other things like be mindful, meditate and yoga, to keep balanced but there are many ways to protect yourself and help in maintaining chakra balance.
I also have to work on speaking my mind more often, communicate how I feel instead of holding in my emotions to unblock and keep open my throat chakra, learning to forgive people who have seriously wronged me to unblock and keep open my heart chakra and finally my third eye chakra is to allow the expansion of the higher being, to expand my spiritual sight instead of being scared of it and shutting it off.

Black Tourmaline (Schrol) is a very supportive stone that protects us from external influences, dispersing stress, tension and negative energy. It grounds and anchors light energy within the physical body, promoting inner wisdom, mastery, individuality, stability, courage and patience being peace to the heart and mind. Black Tourmaline also protects against the negative effects of electromagnetic radiation and inharmonious energies.

Blue Gold-stone (India) – Blue Gold-stone is a dark midnight blue color with beautiful flecks of copper suspended inside. This Tumbled Blue Gold-stone is one of our few synthetic stones. Gold-stone, like diamond, is a good deflector of unwanted energies, and is highly regarded in the spirit realm as a protection mineral. It is a nervous system stimulant and enhances transmission of healing energies from the hands, therefore it is applicable to long-distance healing.
The sparkles of Blue Gold-stone are symbolic of the light that can always be found in the darkness, and its resemblance to the night sky will remind you to reach for the stars. This Blue Gold-stone can be used during Meditations, held in your client’s hand during a session, or just to carry in your pocket.
Midnight Blue Gold-stone protects the psychic and empathetic sensitivities. Is also effective in the transmission of healing energies from the Heart, Throat and Third Eye Chakras. While this is technically a man-made piece, it does contain copper, which in itself is extremely helpful in the areas of inflammation and increasing ones blood flow.

Balances opposites & Grounding
Tourmaline Quartz, also known as Tourmalinated Quartz, is a variety of Clear Quartz with naturally occurring needle-like inclusions of Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl.
Chakras – Third Eye
Element – Earth
Typical colours – Clear with needle-like crystals of Black Tourmaline.
Tourmaline Quartz combines the properties of Tourmaline and Clear Quartz Crystal. Tourmaline purifies ones own energies and protects from negativity, while Quartz amplifies energies focused through it. This combination makes Tourmaline Quartz a powerful shield-stone that, depending on the desired intent of the wearer, can amplify and return negative energy, like a mirror spell, or can convert the negative energy into positive energy for the wearer.
An effective grounding stone, Tourmaline Quartz strengthens the body’s energy field against external invasion and deflects detrimental environmental influences. It is often seen as a symbol of unity and is an effective problem solver. It eliminates crystallised patterns which are, or may have been, destructive in ones own life and releases tensions at any level. Its liberating power against negative energy can be used to assist us to actualise the strength needed to alleviate negative or hostile relationships and situations. Tourmaline Quartz balances yin / yang energies. It harmonises disparate and opposite elements and polarities, and turns negative thoughts and energies into positive ones. Psychologically, it helps to integrate and heal the shadow energies, alleviating self-sabotage. It harmonises the meridians, the subtle bodies, and the chakras.
Tourmaline Quartz detoxifies the entire body and is used to treat disorders of the digestive tract.
A link to learn other ways to “program” your crystal.
3 ways to use your crystals
- Meditate with your crystal, by placing your crystal in your dominant hand or on the floor in front of you. Close your eyes and concentrate on the color of your stone. Slowly try to vibe with the crystal’s energy. Remember: “Energy follows thought”. The imagery of visualization is very powerful! As you breath, you may inhale and exhale through the Chakra points. This will charge the Chakra and surrounding organs with vital energy. You may utilize the vibrational power of sound or music during your session. The stones will enhance a positive, reconnecting flow of energy, which will allow you to bring up, recognize and clear emotional blocks. By “laying of the stones” on the Chakra points, (energy areas) you have begun the healing. While meditating, you may choose to have them visualize the corresponding color of each Chakra energy point saturating and balancing each part of their body.
- Aura cleansing is another way to effect our human energetic. The laying of stones to effect the Aura can be done in order to prevent, heal or cleanse our life force field.
- Place them in a velvet pouch and carry them with you during the day in a pocket, bra, somewhere hidden and allow them to do their jobs.
I can’t wait to go crystal shopping with my homeopathic doctor sometime in the next couple of months. I will also take my daughters and help them figure out what chakras they need to unblock. Collecting the types of crystals one needs at different times in their lives is an important task because choosing the gemstone that works with your body is knowledge based. I hope I have provided a good start in the last two weeks posts to help you on your way to finding the crystals you need to feel balanced in the circle of 7 chakras everyone’s body holds.
