Naturally formed crystals can be used in healing a wide range of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues. Crystal healing is a safe, gentle, and natural therapy that is suitable for use with people of all ages. This method requires no specialized equipment—all you need are the crystals themselves.

One area of life that people are often looking to improve or find support for is in love and relationships. This may be of the romantic variety, but also includes platonic friendships and our relationships with family, work colleagues, and other associates. Healing crystals can be used to attract love into your life as well as to support, improve, and strengthen existing friendships and relationships. One method of working with crystals is using them to heal and maintain balance in the chakras associated with love and relationships. These are known as the heart and sacral chakras. A healthy and balanced sacral chakra helps you to connect to your feelings and to enjoy physical pleasure, while the heart chakra opens you up to be able to give and receive love and form healthy relationships with others.

The Sacral Chakra

This chakra is positioned approximately two inches below the naval and is associated with the colour orange and element of water. It is connected to sexuality, creativity, emotions, anger, food, and sex and helps you to understand what you need and feels pleasurable.

A healthy sacral chakra brings an open, healthy, and confident attitude towards sex, sexual pleasure, intimacy, and fun. It allows openness to the giving and receiving of sexual pleasure. Blockages in this chakra can lead to emotional immaturity, obsessive attachments to others, jealousy, and manipulative behaviors. It can make it hard to feel desire or achieve sexual satisfaction. A blocked sacral chakra can lead to feelings of guilt and shame in relation to sex or the physical body and may make someone feel as if they are unlovable.

Orange crystals such as carnelian, amber, orange calcite, and sunstone are all highly suitable for use with the sacral chakra. Other stones that are good choices when working with this chakra include red jasper, yellow topaz, citrine, moonstone, and selenite.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra can be found behind the physical heart and is connected to all forms of love and relationships. It is associated with the element of air and the colours green and pink. A well balanced heart chakra creates a compassionate, tolerant, and loving nature as well as a healthy view of love and relationships. This includes a person having a well-balanced view of themselves and self-love.

Any imbalance in this chakra can lead to a person holding onto unrealistic views of how relationships should be and can lead to codependency, jealously, and possessive behaviors. People who have imbalanced or blocked heart chakras may have an excessive need to give or always do things for other people. This can leave them open to being taken advantage of or abused and lead to resentment or bitterness and depression. They may also become very shy and isolated, tending to stay away from others due to fear of being hurt.

Green and pink crystals are very effective when working with the heart chakra. These include varieties such as rose quartz, green quartz, aventurine, rhodonite, pink tourmaline, period, ruby, green tourmaline, green fluorite, kunzite, and rhodochrosite.

Healing and Balancing Chakras to Enhance Love and Relationships

There are many different methods that can be used to heal and open the sacral and heart chakras, including crystal healing, meditation, yoga and including certain foods in your diet. These can be used individually depending on your circumstances or you can combine more than one technique. For example: you could use crystal in your meditation or seek to improve your all over well-being with yoga and a diet of wholesome natural foods.

Meditation is a very useful tool for chakra healing and there are many methods to try. Those new to meditation may find starting with a recorded guided meditation easier, as this helps to keep your focus. When meditating, find yourself a quiet space where you will not be disturbed and can sit or lie down comfortably.

Crystal healing is a very versatile method of healing and balancing the chakras. Crystals can be placed directly onto the chakra during meditation or any time you are able to relax and take time out; they can also be worn in jewellery or carried in your pocket. Crystals should always be cleansed before use to remove any negative or stale energy they may have picked up. This is especially important when you buy new crystals as you do not know who will have touched them or what conditions they have been placed under.

Making changes to your diet or eating more of the relevant foods is another way to heal chakras and is easy to incorporate into your daily routine. To help heal the sacral chakra aim to eat more naturally orange coloured foods, oily fish, nuts, seeds, sweet fruits, cinnamon, paprika, and foods that contain a high percentage of water. The heart chakra will benefit from the addition of green foods to your diet. This includes leafy vegetables such as kale, chard and spinach, green tea, and vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. Rosemary, basil, sage, and thyme are also beneficial. Lastly, any foods that you find warming and comforting or that are related to positive memories will also help to keep the heart chakra balanced.
