Learn how to do Color Therapy the quick way utilizing crystals.
Crystals work with energy and light making them a more expedient way to receive color therapy versus merely surrounding yourself with color. Each hue has its own energetic frequency which gives it specific traits. Those traits are linked to the Chakra System. Crystals are available in a multitude of colors. They emit light and energy which sends the color’s vibration to the matching chakra for healing. The light energy makes it so that the stone is able to send it’s energy to a receiving source i.e humans. The Chakras are color based and respond well when various colors are placed within our environment. This touches on only one level of Crystal Healing.
What will be covered here
In this article I’m going to cover various colors and what their traits are. I’ll also give you a basic understanding of the 7 Major Chakras and the colors that are assigned to each. You can pick up a few stones or use what you already have at home. Most of us have a tendency to intuitively surround ourselves with the hues we require for healing and that includes intuitively purchasing the crystals and stones we are in need of.
Color has been scientifically proven to affect mind, mood, and personal well being. If you look at the psychology behind each color along with the attributes assigned to the chakra which correlates with that color you’ll see a connection between the two. By having an understanding of the effects that color has, you are better able to select stones for specific healing practices. Following I will list the attributes assigned for each color. Pay mind to the colors you are most attracted to and those which you like the least.
RED: Love, passion, energy, vitality, enthusiasm, motivation, courage, strength, creativity
ORANGE: Strength, authority, attraction, success, emotional release, abundance, creativity

What exact type of crystal you use doesn't really matter. Go with what you are drawn to, this is your intuition guiding you. It's making one stone pop out over another. If you keep the information from above in mind regarding each color then it gives you a basic idea of what the crystal you chose is about. It will hold those particular energies and as well as those inherent in the crystal type.
There are 7 Major Chakras and hundreds of minor ones. The illustration shown below gives a sense of the location of the Chakras which can be worked with very effectively for color therapy. Keep in mind that each chakra accepts more colors than just the one shown in the illustration. I will list them when we talk about each chakra individually.
When we talk about the chakras we always start at the bottom and work our way up to the top so that’s where we’ll begin. The Root Chakra is in charge of vitality, strength, will, manifesting, courage, survival, grounding, sexual energy, circulation, and cell repair.. Black brown and red crystals are best for this chakra.
The Sacral Chakra is the center of assimilation, accepting new beginnings, letting go, connecting with feelings, endurance, productivity, and reproduction. This is one of the creativity centers, where an idea manifests, and is fueled by the emotions. Orange, Peach, and Yellow stones work well here.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the center of confidence, personal, power stimulation, and inventiveness. Yellow stones and yellow-green stones are best for this area.
The Heart Chakra is the center of personal growth, balance, compassion, and love. Pink and green stones are fantastic for this chakra.
The Throat Chakra is the center for communication, creativity, peace, the metabolism, and the nervous system. The throat is where it is where creativity is expressed. Blue stones are perfect for this spot.
The Third Eye Chakra is the center of intuition, expansion, psychic awareness, spirituality, and the brain. Indigo and violet crystals work well here.
The Crown Chakra is the center of transformation, trust, and Oneness. Clear, white, gold, and violet stones are great for this chakra.
There a number of ways you may choose to work with crystals and stones. You may place the crystal or stone directly on the chakra while lying down, keep it in your pocket, hold it in your hand, or place it in you environment. You are allowed to work with more than one stone at a time if you wish. Always listen to your inner guide! Be sure to clean the stones of unwanted energy afterwards by bathing them in moonlight for several hours.
