Healing crystals that function at higher vibration could also be used to work on heart chakra balancing. You may first start with stones directly associated with the heart, such as the green and pink healing stones mentioned above. Once you become comfortable using these crystals, you may begin to use the higher vibration stones. For a direct contact, place the healing stone on the center of your chest. You may either lie down or relax in that position for a few minutes or longer, or you may decide to wear the stone as a piece of jewelry.
