There are 2 main ways to balance your Chakras using gemstones.

The first way is to lay the gemstones directly on your body. The second is to use a witness and lay the crystals on the witness for the healing and balancing to be sent remotely.

A ‘witness’ is something that represents the person or object of your intention. It could be a photo, a piece of hair or a sample of the object, the full name, etc.

First, you will need a set of 7 gemstones. One gemstone associated for each of the Chakra + a Clear Quartz (point preferably) and a grounding stone (Smoky Quartz, Black Tourmaline or Hematite).

You can get a basic kit here or see below for a list of gemstones associated to each of the Chakras.

How to do a Chakra balancing grid over your body

chakra healing crystal grid

  1. Place a Smoky Quartz or a Tourmaline between your knees or ankles for grounding and clearing.
  2. Starting with the Root Chakra, place the color matching gemstone on the corresponding Chakra along the body. Bring your focus and awareness to this area and visualize the Chakra opening like a flower blossoming.
  3. Direct any stagnant energies you sense within the Chakra to the grounding stone.
  4. You can optionally add a clear quartz point above the head (pointing down towards the body) to bring in and direct universal frequencies into the subtle body.
  5. Once all the gemstones have been placed, relax for at least 10-15 minutes. You may want to relax until messages (ideas, memories, emotions, etc..) start flowing into your awareness, which may take longer than 15 minutes.
  6. Remove one stone at a time, starting with the Crown, then Third Eye, Throat, ect.

Cleanse your stone after each healing with incense (Palo Santo or Sage), on selenite or striking a singing bowl around your stones.

How to balance Chakras remotely

crystal healing grid

There are a few ways to send healing remotely using a witness. You can print a large photo of yourself or the person you are sending healing to, to use as the witness (the object that represents the person).

Or you can print a general chakra body layout and write the full name of the person above.

Then proceed to lay the stones on the paper the same way you would over the actual body.

  1. Place a Smoky Quartz or a Tourmaline below the feet for grounding and clearing.
  2. Starting with the Root Chakra, place the color matching gemstone on the corresponding Chakra along the body. Bring your focus and awareness to this area and visualize the Chakra opening like a flower blossoming.
  3. Direct any stagnant energies you sense within the Chakra to the grounding gemstone.
  4. You can optionally add a clear quartz point above the head (pointing down towards the body) to bring in and direct universal frequencies into the subtle body.
  5. You may leave the gemstones as long as you feel necessary. However, you may need to refresh your healing intention every 24 hours.
  6. Remove one stone at a time, starting with the Crown when you are done.
  7. Cleanse the gemstones as well as the paper or photo using incense or placing a piece of selenite over it for 24 hours.

Healing other Chakra areas

There are many other Chakra points aside from the 7 major Chakras. You may want to consider these other areas for working on and healing specific issues.

Past-lives – There is a Chakra point behind the left ear that helps to access past-life information. You may want to place Petrified Wood, Petrified Coral or Stromatolite behind the left ear (or side of left ear if using a witness).

Higher Heart Chakra : The Higher Heart Chakra is related more to the will to live, to forgiveness and to higher service. While the Heart Chakra relates more to conscience (morals, values, right or wrong, etc.) and relationships. You may want to work with Rhodochrosite, Pink Opal, Pink Tourmaline, Chrysocolla, Turquoise

Healing the Spleen : The spleen is often overloaded with anger and unresolved childhood emotions. Balancing the spleen may assist you when working on emotional energies. Place Pink Tourmaline, Golden Healer Quartz, Sulpher in Quartz, or Bloodstone under the left breast.

Releasing destructive and/or self-destructive patterns : These patterns are not always easy to detect within ourselves as they are not always expressing themselves as addictions or self-harm. If you know or suspect self-destructive patterns, you may want to place Jet, Indigo Gabbro, or Emerald on each knee or elbow.

Additional elements to your Chakra grid

smoky quartz sacred geometry setYou may want to use additional elements with your Chakra balancing grid to enhance certain frequencies. Such elements could be herbs, flower essences or sacred geometry. You may want to ask yourself what would you need to feel more balanced? Do you need to release tension and anxiety? Do you want clarity and insights? Do you need more ‘energy’ or ‘fire’?

Cleansing frequencies : You could add a dodecahedron at the Crown Chakra. You may also burn incense of Dragon’s Blood, Myrrh, Honey Amber or the cleansing blend. Or sprinkle some of the herbs and resins over the witness (photo or body layout representing the person).

Feeling grounded and safe : You could add a cube-shaped gemstone at the Root Chakra as it represents the Earth element and the number 4 which is stability. You could also use Lavender or Palo Santo as herbal

Increased vitality : You can add a Tetrahedron (pyramid) at the Solar Plexus or Sacral Chakra as it represents the Fire element. You may also use Frankincense incense or resin.

Releasing stress and tension : You can add the Icosahedron to the Sacral Chakra as it represents the water element (water is associated to emotions). This shape helps to balance the energy field and encourages receptivity to help and assistance from others. Use Juniper, Lavender, Mugwort or Sage as herbal support.

Love frequencies : You may add heart-shaped gemstones to your healing grid and use Rose, Sweet Love incense blend, Yerba Santa to increase love and harmony frequencies.

isis wand - crystal wandAnother amazing tool to enhance healing frequencies is to use an Isis wand. This wand, based on sacred geometry and ancient Egyptian healing tools, radiates a high degree of gold frequency. You may place it on yourself or on the witness as well. It is best not to share your wand with others. If doing healing work on others or building a crystal healing grid for someone else, it is best to have a dedicated wand for that.
