Crystals & Stones
The list of Crown Chakra Crystals & Stones are truly an amazing selection! Because this chakra brings energy to the rest of the main chakras I am listing several that you can use and how they can bring you a clear insight into your chakra healing journey.
Because this chakra is strongly related to the psychic gift of “Knowing”, or claircognizance as it is also referred to, we will need to also focus on the crystals/stones that will help develop this ability. Most, if not all, higher vibration crystals/stones will definitely aid in this ability.
But first… before you work with these types of crystals and stones… you must ALWAYS protect and ground yourself. Also, ease into using these crystals/stones as they may affect you deeply and thrust you into transformation quickly. So please approach, as with any type of energy work, these crystals/stones with deep respect.
Oh! And one interesting little (well… it’s not little by any means) tidbit is if you have been drawn to any of the crown chakra crystals/stones then it is highly likely that you are being called upon. Called upon to develop your abilities… called upon to answer to a higher calling from the Divine/God/Universe. It is also believed that if the color you are drawn to most is purple and or white… it is another sign that you are called to a higher purpose. White is the combination of all the colors and is the color that emanates from the crown chakra because of the Divine connection. That purpose could mean many things but mostly a calling to guide those who need guidance and to become a healer. Being a voice for the Divine is another. Most of you who are reading this right now are being called to that higher purpose. If you weren’t then you wouldn’t be drawn to these types of articles.
The crown chakra is the highest of the main chakras and using stones that are at a higher vibration can help you specifically with this chakra. The higher vibration stones associated with this chakra are Kyanite (indigo or blue), Herkimer Diamonds, Moldavite, White Heulandite, Nirvana Quartz, Herderite, Petalite, Stellar Beam Calcite, Danburite, Satyaloka Quartz, Scolecite, Tanzanite, Natrolite, Star Hollandite Quartz and Phenacite are some in the list of many. Please go to http://www.healing-crystals-for-you.com/crystal-energy.html and read through the information about working with them. It’s much better to be prepared and do it the right way before just jumping in not knowing what you’re up against.
Below, I’ve listed some stones from the list above, and a few others, and what they can help with in regard to the crown chakra. This chakra resonates with the colors purple and white but not all stones have to be those colors. There are many other stones of various colors that also resonate with this chakra.
Indigo and/or Blue Kyanite: Stimulates the pineal gland
This stone is a high vibration stone but the reason I placed it first is because it is gentler than other high vibration stones but, keep in mind that everyone is different and this stone can be stronger with your energy so please be aware of that. This stone will help to align and clear all the chakras. Simply having it in your possession will align and clear all the chakras without having to direct its energy, but, if you do direct its energy to a specific chakra it will be stronger and more effective. This stone also aids in the development of psychic gifts so please be aware that those gifts that are emerging may emerge faster while using this stone. This stone is also wonderful for calming the mind allowing you to have a more restful night’s sleep. It relaxes you and helps you ease into meditation. When your mind is relaxed it will experience more during meditation as well as during your normal day. This is also a strong healing stone. There are so many benefits to having this stone that I could go on and on but I will stop there and hope that you add this beauty to your collection. Kyanite is ready available in its more common color of blue and is not overly expensive. The indigo color is more difficult to find and may be more expensive.
Amethyst (Purple): Aid in healing and spiritual growth
This crystal is wonderful for healing because it embodies the energy of the violet flame. The violet flame, in short, transforms negative energy into positive. This crystal aids in sleeping restfully and helps with peaceful dreaming. Being that it is a quartz crystal, its energy is more focused. Any stone or crystals that has quartz in it has a higher, more concentrated energy focus. This stone is also used for protection as it wards off negativity. Because this stone helps to calm and quiet the mind, it is highly suggested to use for psychic development. I, personally, use amethyst for that purpose. This stone is widely available and not very expensive.
Moldavite: Transformation (High Vibration Stone)
This stone is known as “The Holy Grail Stone” because of its great transformation energy aiding in change and healing. It is used for psychic protection and to ward of negative entities. Because this stone connects to the heart chakra it will radiate a love vibration helping you to ease into change and healing. Using this stone to aid in transformation has a warning attached. Once you begin the transformation… there is not stopping it. So be prepared if you are drawn to use this stone. This stone is often used to enhance your psychic gifts. It helps to make contact with spiritual guides to also aid you in the healing process. This stone is a must have if you are a healer because of its push for healing which creates transformation. It will also intensify the energy flowing through you to aid in the healing of others. Common effects of those receiving healing while the healer is using this stone is a reaction in the chest area, due to its work on the heart chakra, and the face giving it an intense heat feeling. This heat feeling is quite common and may be uncomfortable for some. This stone is common and readily available but may be expensive so make sure you shop around to get a good deal.
Tanzanite: Metaphysical Healing (High Vibration Crystal)
This stone is known as a powerful violet flame crystal. It is used to aid in psychic development (such as psychic communication and intuition), metaphysical healing, and transformation. This crystal activates the heart chakra then links it to the third eye by way of the throat chakra linking the three of them. With the three linking you may experience a Divine sense of love allowing you to communicate that sense of love. This energy can also trigger the psychic abilities associated with them. This is also an awesome healers stone because of that that Divine love and violet flame connection. This connection also radiates throughout the whole chakra system giving you, the healer, and the person receiving the healing a boost of the Divine love and violet flame energy pushing out any negativity allowing the chakras to be aligned. Very powerful healer crystal. If you use a healing wand this would be an amazing addition. Tanzanite is ready available and not too expensive.
Nirvana Quartz (aka Ice Quartz): Enlightenment (High Vibration Crystal)
This crystal was discovered when the Himalayan glaciers began to recede in 2006. They are also named after ice because they have a similar look. This crystal brings about spiritual awakening because its energy stimulates the higher chakras. This stone has a gentle feeling even though its vibration is strong. It allows the connection to the heart chakra to be utilized throughout the higher chakras easing you into deep meditation and strong connection to the spirit world. This deep connection eases you forward into spiritual growth. When in this deep meditation, you reach a state of nirvana (hence the name) that transcends you to into the process of letting go of binds from present and past lives. This process can help you release karmic debts which, in turn, can send you into a state of enlightenment changing your whole perspective on life. Another wonderful healer’s stone. This stone also stimulates psychic abilities. Because this crystal is a deep meditation type crystal it is highly recommended that you ground yourself directly after use. Because this stone is still fairly new it is high sought after. It is available but may be a bit on the expensive side.
So there are some of the crown chakra stones. Absolutely AMAZING stones! Of course… as always, there are many many other stones you have to choose from. I would love to hear which ones you choose and how they work for you!
How to pick stones that will work best for you is actually quite simple. When you shop for stones you need to trust your intuition… plain and simple. If you pick up a stone and you get a strong feeling either good or bad, you really need to trust that feeling. If you were to buy a stone that really doesn’t feel right it could actually cause you harm. Yes, you can cleanse stones but it’s better to go with stones that feel right to you instead.
Purchasing stones online makes this more difficult because you’re not always getting the stone you see in the picture. So if you have to purchase online seek a reputable seller and try to buy in bulk that way you have a variety of choices.
Money can be an issue when buying in bulk. So what I suggest is to leave the negative thoughts about money behind. Negative money thoughts will only make things more difficult for you. So give this a try… focus on what you want… build up your energy with that focus all the while putting love and light into the energy… now once you have built what you feel is enough energy… release it into the universe with confidence and a smile that it is going to come to you. Do this as much as you can… maybe every day for a week… constantly putting that positive energy on what you want.
Ok, now tomorrow we are going to look at different ways to keep the flow of energy within the crown chakra. I hope this is helping you understand more about your chakra system and how keeping it healthy can help to make your life easier and more positive.
In Love & Light Always,
