If you’ve felt a little off balance lately, perhaps it’s time to actively work to balance out the flow of energy in your body. The seven chakras are important centers of energy, and when they are blocked, it can lead to issues that can affect us physically and emotionally. It’s important to try and work to keep the chakras open, so that energy does not become stuck and can freely move about the body as it was designed to do.
A great way to help keep your energy moving so you can operate at your highest vibration is to work with chakra stones to keep your chakras open. Chakra stones are helpful because they can use their inherent energy to work with the vibrations of your chakras. But what’s the best way to activate them? In this post, we’re going to talk about:
Many people are becoming more aware of the benefits of including chakra stones into their daily routines. When it comes to keeping the chakras open so energy can flow freely, chakra stones offer us a great way to focus our energy and intention. When chakras get out of alignment, it can be for a variety of reasons, but there are ways you can work to open them back up so they are balanced.
Stones are a great visual and energetic tool to help focus your energy on a specific chakra. There are a variety of different stones associated with each chakra, allowing you to choose a color and vibration that works best for your body. Choose a stone (or a few) for each chakra, and allow that to be its only purpose. Next, you’ll need to activate them!
Once you’ve found your chakra stones for each of the seven chakras, it’s time to activate them so they can go to work helping you to open and balance your chakras. You’ll want to do this for each separate stone and its corresponding chakra, one at a time. Take your stone, and either hold it near your chakra or lay down and place it in the area of the chakra. You’ll then want to visualize all the ways in which this stone can help you unblock the stale energy and restore the flow throughout the body. It helps to think of how this stone can help you and what goals you’d like to achieve by balancing and restoring a specific chakra.
You may want to start out each chakra stone activation stating an intention of exactly what you’d like it to do. Something like “I choose to dedicate this stone to the highest good of the heart chakra and increase love, joy, and happiness,” or any statement like this. That way it’s clear what the stone is being activated for, and what you can expect it to do.
After you activate each stone for your chakras, you can start to use them with your chakra work. You may find that you like to use more than one stone for a chakra, and that’s completely fine. Work with the stones that you're drawn to—those are the stones with the energy that is just right for you.
Some people may choose to carry their stones that they’ve activated around with them for a period of time afterwards, seven days for example. If you choose to do this, consider putting all your chakra stones into a bag that can easily be transported with you, so that you don’t accidentally leave a stone in your pocket and lose it!
When you’ve got your stones all activated, now you can put them to work helping to balance out your body’s energy and unblock your chakras. There are a couple of ways we suggest you can easily do this, but if you have another way that speaks to you, by all means follow your intuition on this!
Chakra stones are easy to activate, and they can be made a part of your routine chakra work. Don’t wait for a chakra imbalance, instead actively check in with your energy centers to ensure there are no blockages!
