Fan Submitted Question: I have been learning about my Chakras and the elements and stones that go with them. Would a clear Quartz crystal sever as a multipurpose stone to help open my Chakras or do I need an individual stone for each one?
Answer: Yes, Clear Quartz is the most universal crystal. It helps to amplify the energies of other crystals and it is highly programmable to meet your needs. If you can only have 1 crystal, Clear Quartz would be the one to get. Clear Quartz is a storm element, which means that it is connected to all of the elemental energies. I would recommend that you get a natural point, which can be used to move and direct the chakra energies. When I do crystal healing sessions I use a crystal that corresponds to the chakra, like Citrine for the Solar Plexus, and then I use a natural Clear Quartz point to cleanse and balance the chakra’s energies.
Although you do not need to have 1 crystal per chakra, I do feel that it is a very good thing to do. The color and energy from the crystal for that chakra will be at the right energetic frequency. You can typically get a starter chakra kit for a relatively inexpensive price. If you cannot get a crystal for a specific chakra, Clear Quartz can be used as a substitute.
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals and energy healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Energy Healing is not meant to replace conventional medicine, but rather to complement and enhance it. Energy Healing should only be used with the understanding that it is not an independent therapy, but one that is a part of a holistic healing approach. Results of energy healing will vary from person to person.
