Chakra Stones

When I was a crystologist I created my own Chakra Stones, taken from much time spent working as a Reiki Master and becoming well versed with crystal healing.  I picked out flat and rounded crystals/stones which resonated with each chakra and could be used safely, effectively and charged them with that purpose.

What are Chakra Stones for?

Chakra stones are used to clean your aura and purify the energies in your subtle bodies.  They can also be used in conjunction with vibrational healing such as Reiki.  The way they are used is by placing them on or near where the chakras are on the physical body.

How to make your own Chakra Stones

Pick one stone for each of the seven major chakras:

Crown – white or purple such as clear quartz and amethyst.

Third Eye – blue or purple such as lapis and charoite.

Throat – blue such as sodalite.

Heart – pink or green such as rose quartz and malachite.

Solar Plexus – yellow such as citrine or calcite.

Navel – orange such as carnelian or amber.

Base – brown or red such as jasper and garnet.

Some like to add extra chakra stones above and below the body – one for above the head (soul star chakra to elevate the energy) such as selenite and one for under the feet (earth star chakra to ground the energy) such as tourmaline.   Also some will add another stone for the “higher heart” chakra (which is located between the throat and the heart chakra) such as watermelon tourmaline to be able to connect the intellectual to the emotional bodies.

My advice is to play around with colors and vibrations of crystals with each chakra and come up with your own set.  This way its personalized and you develop a relationship with the crystals you are using.

Here is a list I created for those interested in Kemetism (Ancient Egypt) which you can use to assist you in selecting the stones you want for your chakra kit:   Ancient Egyptian Stones

 

This is the end result of my personal pack:

Pagan Blog Project: Q is for Quartz Programming

What is Crystal Programming?

All crystals take in the various energies they are surrounded by, but you can also tap into them and give them a job to do.  This is done via crystal programming. In its essence, crystal programming is a way you can charge your crystal with specific intent and purpose as well as it activating the true capabilities of the crystal which can in turn trigger them in you.  Crystals can absorb, hold and release information, visions and feelings and can be programmed for happiness, abundance, success, healing and whatever else you can think of which you want to manifest in your life. The way crystals are programmed is through projecting your thought form into the crystal in a clear and conscious way. The most effective type to use for crystal programming is clear quartz.

Tina’s Crystal Programming Technique (© T. Georgitsis 2014)

Ingredients

  • 1 clear quartz crystal
  • Salt water

Method

  1. Clean crystal of all previous programing (whether it was intentional or not) in salt water or by holding the crystal in the hand which isn’t dominant (ie left hand if you are right handed) and visualise a blue light flowing from your hand and enveloping the crystal (Reiki or Sekhem/Seichim is perfect for this).
  2. Formulate what you want your crystal to be programmed with ensuring it’s a positive though form for it to be of benefit as the crystal will only amplify what potential you store within it.
  3. Enter a place of calm meditative contemplation in a safe space where you wont be disturbed.
  4. Take the crystal and place it in the middle of your hand which isn’t the dominant one and place the other hand over it in a cupping motion touching the crystal with both hands.
  5. Place the intent in the crystal now by visualising what you want it to do ie if you want it to help it heal you, visualise the sickness vanishing away.
  6. Once you feel that your thoughts have successfully flowed through (you can usually feel this as a circuit running through your body and into the crystal) you have successfully programmed your crystal.
  7. Repeat the steps 4-6 several times to ensure your crystal has been programmed securely.

Simple Use for Programmed Crystals

Carry it around with you to trigger the properties you programmed it for by rubbing it or holding it between your palms for some extra energy and inspiration.

Sanctuary of Hekate’s Crossroads: Samhain 2014

This year for Samhain  I focused on honouring my Akhu.  I also retook some of my spiritual vows to enable me to re-focus my energy  with respects to my relationship with Deity and various magickal traditions I am part of.  I did this for various personal reasons and it was incredibly freeing whilst releasing the stagnant clutter and opening up doors to new possibilities…

Sanctuary of Hekate’s Crossroads: Artemis Festival – The Mounukhia

Full Moon April 2014

I had a private ritual in my sanctuary to Hekate where I re-enacted this beautiful rite a friend of mine wrote (I also recommend her blog By Stars Cave and Sea):

I found it so empowering, beneficial and just flowed with beauty and power!

Pagan Blog Project: C is for Crystal Cleansers

Crystals pick up and take on negative energies through emotions, thoughts and physical interaction from their owners, their environment and also from others who handle them. Therefore its prudent that crystals be cleansed periodically to clear these toxic energies and be recharged. 

You can clean your crystals by:

1. Immersing them in salt water for 24 hours under the *sun or moon light or by wiping them with a damp cloth soaked in salt water.

2. Immersing them in a bowl of brown rice for 3 days on an altar or in the NW corner of a room, home or business.

3. Immersing them in a bowl of purified water with fresh flower petals such as marigolds, sage blossoms, sun flowers, iris, honeysuckle, daisies, roses, rosemary blossoms, lemon blossoms, carnations, cherry blossoms and apple blossoms.

3. Smudge using herbs such as lavender, sage, cedar and bay.

4. Crystal programming (aka thought projection).  This is the most difficult and requires focused concentration and experience in meditation and working with crystal energies.

5. Reiki/Sekhem/Seichim which utilities specific symbols channeled through the breath and hands.

6. By burying in the earth (garden, pot plant, sand) for 24 hours.

7. By sound intoning using crystal bowls, chanting, Tibetan singing bowls, sistras, bellydance symbals, bells, tuning forks and singing.

8. By placing them on or within a clear quartz or amethyst quartz: cluster, slab or cave. You can also place a smokey quartz single terminator crystal on top of them.

 

I like to make my own crystal cleanser which I put into a spray bottle and then spray over my crystal jewelry, caves, slabs, balls, and other shaped crystals due to convenience.  This same cleanser can be added to a bowl or tub of purified water which you can wash your crystals in.
