HEALING CRYSTALS FOR BALANCING YOUR Crown CHAKRA
About the Crown chakra
AKA Sahasrara chakra
The seventh chakra is the crown chakra, also known as the Sahasrara chakra. It is located at the very top of the head. The crown chakra is represented by the color white or violet and the element of Divine Consciousness.
The crown chakra represents inner and outer beauty and spiritual connection, as well as the feelings of gratitude, peace, and acceptance. When this seventh energy center is fully balanced you are able to access higher consciousness, connect with the spiritual realms, and experience enlightenment.
Healing the Crown chakra
When the crown chakra is unbalanced you may feel disconnected from the outside world or a rise in destructive or negative emotions. With a blocked crown chakra, you may also experience a lack of direction or purpose and an unwillingness to be open to the ideas of others.
With a balanced crown chakra, you are able to access higher consciousness and experience enlightenment. You will have a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the cosmos, as well as awareness of your higher self.
Working with crown chakra crystals is one way to this energy center into balance. Many crown chakra crystals are reminiscent of the crown chakra with their white color, a color of calm, peace, and light. The vibrations of these healing crystals assist to encourage emotional healing that makes it easier to access inner peace, spiritual connection, and heightened spiritual awareness as they dispel negative energy.
To use crown chakra stones, place the crystal at your crown while meditating. Keep your crown chakra stones close throughout the day to bring a continuous flow of energy to this center of spiritual insight and universal energy.

The Best Crystals for Each Chakra
When choosing chakra stones to work with you'll want to look for crystals that have the same energetic quality as the chakra when it is balanced. For example, if you wanted to work with crystal healing for your first chakra or Root Chakra, you would look for stones that are known to remove negative energy and possess grounding properties.
Each of the seven chakras also has a corresponding color. So you might start with finding a chakra stone that also has this hue. For example, many Crown Chakra crystals are clear or white as this chakra is represented by the color white.
How to Use Crystals for Chakra Healing
Chakra healing stones work by resonating with the energy of specific chakras, helping to restore balance and flow. Each chakra is associated with a specific color and energy frequency, and certain stones are believed to correspond with each chakra.
For example, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, while citrine is linked to the solar plexus chakra. By placing these stones on or near the corresponding chakra during meditation or energy healing sessions, they can help to clear blockages and restore balance.
