Orange carnelian can be used for either opening or soothing because of its unique healing properties. Amber chakra stones are known for drawing energy into themselves, so can be used to soak up excess energy in the second chakra. Snowflake obsidian restores balance to the body.
Moonstone is a unique crystal because it can be used for both opening and soothing the sacral chakra because of its connection with the moon, which is also associated with the second chakra. The meaning of moonstone varies slightly depending on the variety, but all are good for the sacral chakra, especially ones with a slight golden or yellow hue.
How to Use Chakra Stones
Chakra stones can be used in a variety of ways. One of the easiest and most common is to wear them as jewelry. A crystal pendant can subtly influence your energy throughout the day. Carrying a healing stone in your pocket works as well.
Chakra stones are also useful during meditation and energy healing. Resting a healing stone just below your navel as you meditate can bring additional healing and focus to your practice. If you prefer sitting meditation, holding a stone in each hand or cupping one in your hands as they rest in your lap can have the same results.
