9 Heart Chakra Stones for Manifesting Universal Love
Table of Contents
Healing crystals have a long history of use throughout the world and have been used for thousands of years for emotional balance, personal development, and physical healing.
It is thought the healing power of crystals comes from the vibrational energy of a crystal harmonizing with the energy of the wearer.
This is particularly relevant when it comes to chakras, energy centers in our bodies that need to resonate at their preferred frequency to function correctly.
Chakra stones can help to gently bring their chakras into their optimal vibration, resulting in stress relief and improved physical health.
The Heart Chakra
Also known as the Anahata chakra, the heart chakra is the link between the lower base chakras (root, sacral and solar plexus) and the higher spiritual chakras (throat, third eye, and crown).
Like the name suggests, our heart chakra is located in the center of the chest and is associated with love, compassion, and empathy.
An imbalanced heart chakra can result in feelings of jealousy, anxiety, disconnection from loved ones, and a lack of trust in others.
A balanced heart chakra helps us feel empathy, compassion and feelings of unconditional love.
Heart Chakra Stones
Chakra balancing can be achieved with a multitude of spiritual practices and is different for each person.
As well as using chakra stones, consider looking into chakra yoga, chakra mantras, chakra mudras, affirmations, and meditation.
