Seven Chakra meditation with crystals is my all-time favorite routine to restore the overall balance between the energetic body, mind and physical body. I’ve been practicing it for years now and I looooove how it works wonders each time.
What this essential energy care ritual does, it brings awareness and light to every part of the body, calms the nerves, cleanses and aligns the frequencies of all energy centers. The lovely crystals synchronize with your chakras, and gently rise your current vibration level to a higher one which allows the natural Earth’s and Universal energies to flow smoothly through your being.

Did you know…
For the ones who have discovered the crystal world just recently, it might be fine not to feel any particular sensations or change during and after your first Seven Chakra crystal meditations. It is because your body, in as sense of a dense matter, takes a bit more time to adapt to the higher healing frequencies of crystals. But after a while for sure, your body’s intelligence will learn to recognize each crystals healing vibration and automatically adjust its energetic centers to the higher frequencies which brings a sense of safety, joy, kindness, self-respect and love, honesty, intuition and open minded self-awareness. You may experience tingling sensations and waves of warmth or cold, which is natural for energy work. At some point you will also be able to intuitively feel if there is any blockage in a certain chakra, and what issue has caused it. Your crystals will naturally cleanse that block from your energy body and reactivate the energy flow across the energy centers, which in turn will bring peace and harmonious awareness to the mind and emotional plane.
Which Crystals – What Chakra?
So, to work with this powerful technique, you’ll need 7 crystals – at least one for each chakra. Since there are families of crystals which work on similar vibrational levels, and often also share similar coloring, there is not just one fixed crystal for each chakra. It is quite fun to explore and choose which crystal you really like the most and feel drawn to, from the variety of crystals within one chakra crystal group.
Here are several options that you can use:
- Root chakra – at the base of spine – Hematite/ Red Jasper/ Obsidian/ Black Tourmaline
- Sacral chakra – below the navel – Carnelian/ Orange aventurine/ Orange Jasper
- Solar plexus chakra – on the solar plexus – Citrine/ Tiger’s eye/ Yellow Jasper/ Yellow Jade/ Yellow Calcite
- Heart chakra – in the center of chest – Rose Quartz/ Rhodonite/ Unakite/ Green Aventurine/ Green Jade
- Throat chakra – in the throat/neck area – Blue Lace Agate/ Sodalite/ Lapis Lazuli/ Aquamarine
- Third Eye chakra – on the forehead – Amethyst/ Purple fluorite/ Lapis Lazuli
- Crown chakra – above the head – Clear Quartz/ Amethyst/ White Selenite
Go for it!
Once you are ready to give it a go, you should lay down comfortably on a mat or bed and place the crystals on your body’s chakra centers.
Allow your eyes to comfortably close, and come down into your breath, into your body, relaxing your belly, softening your mind.
Feel the support beneath you, connect with the ground below. And let it take your weight.
Become aware of the sounds around you – let them be there.
Sense the sky above, and the horizons stretching all the way round you, the earth below, supporting you.
Allow your mind to empty what it no longer needs to hold on to, let it go… Allow your body to release what it no longer needs, let it flow out and away…
Draw yourself back from where you’ve been in your day. Draw your energies back home to your center. Ground yourself in this moment… HERE.
Breathe with the space, and become aware of the rise and fall of your breath, its coming and going, with each inhale and exhale visualize how your body begins to resonate with the crystals.
Breathe down to where the weight of your body rests, below the base of your spine – to your root – your Chakra of Belonging. Breathe into your Root. Let it soften and gently expand on your breath, taking in nourishment and life force energy.
Allow your Root to connect down, down to ground below, deep into the earth. And invite in the Root Crystal of color red or black – the colors of the earth. Bathe your Root with the Root Crystal: empowering, embodying, and grounding you in the ‘here and now’. Let your Root take what it needs. And say the words:
“I am here”, “I have a right to be here, as I am”, “The Earth supports me”
When you are ready, allow your awareness to move up to your belly, just below your navel – to your Sacral chakra of emotional intelligence, choice, creativity, movement and pleasure.
Breathe into your Sacral center, let it gently soften and expand on your breath, taking in nourishment and life force energy. And invite in the Sacral Crystal of orange – the color of the setting sun. Bathe your Sacral with the orange crystal – joyful, balancing, empowering, motivating… Let your chakra be fed and say the words:
“I honor my needs” ,“I allow myself to be nourished”, “I am filled with joy of who I am”
And when you are ready move up to the soft area below your breast bone – to your Solar Plexus – your chakra of personal power, and self-respect.
Breathe into here, allowing your solar plexus to soften and expand on your breath. And invite in the Sunny Crystal of color yellow – the color of sunshine and positivity. Bathe your Solar Plexus with sunshine – replenishing, restoring, and nurturing. Letting your Solar Plexus take what it needs. As you say the words:
“I value myself”, “I am more than enough”
When you are ready bring your awareness up to the center of your chest – to your Heart – your chakra of self-development and unconditional love.
Gently breathe into your Heart, letting it soften and expand on your breath. And invite in the Heart crystal of green – the color of spring, or rose pink – whichever feels right. Bathe your heart center with divine love, nourishment, renewal, and healing. Let your Heart take what it needs and say the words:
“I am greatly loved”, “I allow myself to give and receive love freely”, “I am nourished by the power of love”
In your own time, move up to your neck – to your Throat – your chakra of self-expression, truth and personal will.
Allow your throat center to soften, expand and b-r-e-a-t-h-e. Inviting in the Throat Crystal of blue – the color of sky. Breathe sky into your throat center – clearing, opening, softening the need for control, freeing self-expression and creativity. Let your Throat take what it needs. And say the words:
“I hear and speak my truth”, “I express myself freely”, “I allow myself to go with the flow of life”
When you are ready, take your focus up to your forehead – between your eye brows – to your Third Eye – your chakra of wisdom and intuition, gently allowing it to soften, expand, and breathe.
Invite in the Third Eye Crystal of indigo – the velvety color of night sky. Bathe your Third Eye with indigo – soothing, balancing, bringing clarity, intuition, insight and understanding. Let your Third Eye take what it needs. And say the words:
“Everything is unfolding as it should”. “I trust my intuition and higher self”
Slide your awareness up, in your own time, to the top of your head- to your Crown, your chakra of ‘oneness’, allowing your Crown to breathe.
And gently invite in the Crown Crystal – a light violet or clear, softly bathing your Crown – balancing, restoring, harmonizing, and bringing wisdom. Let your Crown chakra take what it needs. And say the words:
“I am one with the Universe”, “I am one with the Light”
When you are ready, come back to yourself as a whole, back to the flow of your breath, back to your center. Breathe in the Crystal energy through all your core. And say the words:
“I am whole”, “I am perfect just as I am”
Allow the energy of the crystals and affirmations to bathe your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. And take what you need.
And, in your own time become aware of the air on the surface of your body. The sounds around you, near and in the distance.
Slowly remove crystals one by one from each chakra and send back a sensation of love and gratitude to your Crystals.
No need to rush out at this point. Allow yourself to gently stretch out, get used to the light and surroundings once you have opened your eyes, and have a cup of warm water if necessary.
“Maintain your physical, emotional, and spiritual harmony with the universe by meditating every day. Inhale the precious breath of life. It is your connection to your Higher power.”Louise Hay
There is no right or wrong!
So, this is my take on Seven Chakra crystal meditation. Hope you enjoyed this guide-y framework and are excited to give it a try! Remember, there is no right or wrong! You can adjust the visualizations, and affirmations to fit your connection with the chakras in the best way. There also isn’t a set time frame for each chakra or the whole duration of the meditation, in my case, for example, I usually devote about 15-25 minutes to this amazing crystal caring routine. So always trust your inner feeling, your intuition and take as much time as you need to experience the most profound states of relaxation and a crystal healing blast.
The awesome trinity of your body, mind and soul will be sure thankful to you afterwards!
