Cleansed and charged healing stones and gems are most effective when they’re in close proximity to the affected chakra. Commonly, they are worn as jewelry or placed directly over the chakra in need of healing. There are numerous ways to incorporate healing stones into your lifestyle and environment. For instance, you may place them around your home and office space, carry them on your person, or even wear them as jewelry.
Whenever there is a blockage in the chakra system, physical and non-physical signs manifest. However, since the root chakra is where energy is initially raised, any disruption in energy flow through the chakra makes it impossible to achieve balance in the remaining six chakras. Signs of a blocked root chakra can include:
- low blood pressure
- digestive and bowel problems
Traditional recommendations for root chakra healing include dietary changes and regular exercise. But when these steps aren’t enough, you may want to consider using the healing properties of crystals and gemstones to restore balance. As with any approach to energy healing, remember, it can take a while for symptoms to completely subside.
