Combining gemstones, yoga and chakra healing, is that even possible? We think so, because every crystal has its own vibration - a kind of crystal lattice - which was made visible in 1915 by Sir William Bragg. This crystal lattice has its own vibration frequency with which our body resonates.
We can use this vibration in Crystal Yoga and for chakra healing. Color theory also plays a role here. Because each of the seven main chakras - our energy centers in the body - is assigned a color. Gemstones work because of their composition, density, crystal form and their color.
Asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) release prana in the body – universal life energy – which is distributed via the nadis (energy channels). Along the Sushumna Nadi, our main energy channel (spinal cord), are the seven main chakras:
For Diane Malaspina, a Yoga Medicine Therapist, a chakra is either blocked or has excess energy. There can be a lack of energy or too much energy in the chakra, both of which have different effects on our psyche and body. She says the effects relate to what the chakra stands for.
A blocked chakra can manifest itself in malaise, illness and imbalance.
A blocked root chakra, for example, can trigger insecurity, self-doubt and depression because the connection to earth is missing. Too much energy in the root chakra can result in fearlessness and recklessness, or hoarding things for a perceived safety.
Through breathing exercises, meditation, yoga asanas and chakra gemstones , the chakras can be brought back into harmony and the universal life energy - prana - can flow freely.
Chakra gemstones can have a positive effect on the chakras due to their nature and vibration and bring them back into harmony.
You can meditate with the gems and place them directly on your skin or hold them in your hand. During the day you can wear the gemstone as a necklace or in your pocket.
Try it out and see which crystal you resonate with. Crystal healing is an empirical science just like Crystal Yoga. What feels good is great.
Yoga exercise for the root chakra : Sufi circles from Kundalini Yoga. You sit cross-legged and your chest circles around your pelvis – place a red jasper or carnelian on your lower spine.
Yoga exercise for the sacral chakra: the butterfly lying down and placing a red carnelian on the chakra
Yoga exercise for the Solar Plexus Chakra: the dove, the boat - put a golden yellow citrine on the chakra or wear a long gemstone necklace
Yoga exercise for the throat chakra: chanting the mantra Omm while holding a Soldalith in your hands or wearing a crystal necklace near your neck
Yoga exercise for the heart chakra: the camel or the wheel (backbends), wear a rose quartz or aventurine necklace near the heart
Yoga exercise for the forehead chakra: meditate with an amethyst in your hand or place a flat amethyst under your forehead in child pose
Yoga exercise for the crown chakra: place a healing circle of rock crystals around you and meditate in it, or do a pranayama exercise, place a rock crystal on the crown in savasana
In general, you can drape your favorite gems around your yoga mat during a Crystal Yoga class. Here, too, it is important to be playful, just try it out and trust your intuition.
With a chakra rock crystal gemstone chain, you can balance your chakras on the go or during your Reiki or crystal yoga session.
