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:

The Land of the Long White Cloud: Paua Shell

12565470_10154641763904762_1367066072792288831_n

Paua (pronounced Pah-Wah) is a univalve shellfish found only in New Zealand coastal waters.  Its unique for its wonderful lustre of irdescent blues, purples, pinks and greens.  The shell grows to over eight incheslong and can live well over fourty years.  Its flesh is edible and greatly valued by the Maori who use the shells as inlays in the eyes of their carvings.  Skin divers harvest the shell which has a heavy encrustations of marine growth and lime deposits.  This outer crust is removed to expose the shell’s full beauty in colour and lustre.  The finest shells are found off the coasts of Fiodland and Stewart Island in the far south of New Zealand.

Spiritually the paua resonate with beauty, healing, fortune, happiness, honesty, tranquility, intuition, psychic sight as well as inspiring the higher self and imagination. Connects to the crown, third eye and throat chakras and vibrationally can assist with immunity, GIT issues, heart, joint and muscle problems along with allergies and sensitivities.

The Land of the Long White Cloud: Stores with Spirit, South Island

12494942_10154618197779762_2395907414597003700_n

Recently got back from a vacation in New Zealand which was quite breathtaking and full of adventure.  Whilst I am still going through the 1,000 photos taken to share some of my adventures, I thought I’d post about some retail places of personal interest I came across in the South (where I spent most of my time):

The Outpost

We actually came across this place when heading to a crystal shop and I was pulled to have a look.  One of the best retail suppliers of quality semi-precious stone jewellery I have ever seen.  All pieces are sourced by the owner and then cut and set by a local jeweller which keeps the prices down and the quality superb.

Hetties

New Zealand’s oldest crystal shop and this was the only new age kind of store I could find in the area (they have a store in Queenstown). They get good quality Jade (Nephrite) and Paua (Shell) in tumbles/pieces as well as traditional and more modern set jewellery but I also found the quality of the other crystals they had were high grade.

Art and Craft Market

Only on saturdays and an absolute must for those who like hand made items direct from the artist themselves.

The jade carvers were especially of interest and I am a fan of Roger Cleghorn’s work as he sources the jade, argillite, bone and paua himself.

Cleghorn

I came across an this great potter John Kalb who digs and processes the clay locally himself when then moulds it and fires it.  It was so nice to see hand thrown pottery in more colours than the standard brown or blue.

Kalb

Lastly I love art especially modern style spray paint art and I came across Gwen Ash who does the most chic and contemporary paintings – the two I purchased resonated a modern Hekate and Sekhmet for me and I just loved the artists enthusiasm about her work.
