Crystals for Releasing with the Full Moon

Jessica Roth

Full moon eclipse

On Friday, there will be a Full Moon & and an Eclipse! I'm not sure if you've noticed, but Full Moon's have very strong energy :) and it's a great time to make intentions around releasing things that are no longer serving you. It's a really fun way to celebrate the magic of the full moon. In fact, if you are local to San Diego, I will be participating in a Full Moon Gathering at The Movement Lab in Solana Beach on Friday 2/10. We would love to have you join us! It's an informal potluck, 7p-10p to enjoy an evening of bonding and dancing.

If you aren't able to join us, some suggestions of things you can do at home: you make a list of what you are ready to release, do a releasing meditation, or just make clear statements of the things you are ready to let go of, so that you can make room for the new things you want to bring into your life.

Chakra 101 and Using Crystals to Support

Jessica Roth

Chakras are part of your energy system, most of them are within your physical body. In a broader sense, you also have an energy aura, spanning around you 360 degrees. We have two main auras around us, but we mostly related to the one closest to our body. Think of this as your “personal space” that you often refer to when you say someone is in your personal space. That’s because someone really IS in your personal space. This energy bubble is approximately four feet around you, so whenever you are sitting or standing next to someone, your energy is mingling with that person’s energy. You can typically tell what their energy is like, based on if you enjoy standing next to them ;)
 
Now that I've given a brief overview of our energy body, let's move on to the chakras! There are seven main chakras that people refer to (well, there are more, but I’m just going to keep in basic today). The Root Chakra (base of spine – Red), Sacral Chakra (below your naval – Orange), Solar Plexus Chakra (above your naval – Yellow), Heart Chakra (Green or Pink), Throat Chakra (Blue), Third Eye Chakra (between eyebrows – Indigo), Crown Chakra (top of head – Violet or white).

These are within your energy aura, and they run through the center of the body. Chakras are smaller energy centers that connect to parts of our emotional being, energetic being and physical being. There is also a flow between the chakras, to keep things moving and connected. Each chakra plays a role in keeping things healthy, which is why there is an emphasis on keeping your chakras healthy; they act as an energetic filter. When external things come into our energy aura, they can affect us if not dealt with properly (emotional traumas, physical traumas, etc.). Those traumas then get stuck in our chakras, causing them to get blocked/stagnant, or unbalanced. From that point, we often start to feel these blockages physically in our body. Each chakra is connected to many different physical parts of your body, so if you are feeling something physically, you can often trace it back to the corresponding chakra.
 
A quick example: I used to have a hard time speaking up for myself. I had experiences as a child, when I’d speak up about things I didn’t like, it was often pushed aside. Therefore, I always felt like my voice didn’t matter. So when I went through a divorce a few years ago, and didn’t feel like I could speak up for myself – I had sore throats and coughing fits (from a tickle in my throat) ALL the time. I’d even lose my voice at times. My throat often felt raw, dry, tight and irritated… sometimes for weeks. This was because my throat chakra was blocked from all the times that I didn’t speak up for myself. It took me a really long time of consistent work to clear out all those past traumas. And when I would work on clearing them out, I’d feel my whole throat trying to tense/close up during the releasing. It was a long process, but I have a healthy throat now!

So how do Chakras and Crystals/Jewelry work together? 

As I’d noted above, each chakra has a corresponding color. This is one of the ways that you can determine which crystals support which chakras…. A lot of times, this is by matching a crystal of the same color to that chakra. Granted, it’s not 100% accurate (and always go with your intuition if you feel drawn to work with a specific crystal), but it gives an easy way for beginners to work with crystals and chakras. A scientific way of explaining it: each chakra vibrates at a certain frequency, as do crystals, so when you want to support a chakra, you pick a crystal that has the same vibrational frequency. When looking books/resources, they usually don’t tell us what these frequencies are (it’s more information than the average person wants)… so they just make it easy and give us the easy to understand information of (___crystal = ___chakra). For example, when I was working on my throat chakra, I used a lot of blue crystals – Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, Blue Kyanite, etc… I made a necklace for myself with blue crystals, and used the Balance Gem Water Bottle. These crystals help keep the chakra vibration at the higher vibration it functions best at, so that it can easily release the low vibration energy that was blocking it. Does that make sense? If not, let me know, and I’ll try to explain it from a different angle.

How do crystals help you?

What is crystal healing?
 
I’m going to start sharing more information with you on individual crystals, but before I do that, I wanted to give you a brief understanding of crystal healing, energy and how it works with our physical and energetic bodies. That way, when I tell you about how a crystal might be able to help, you’ll have a better understanding of why!

Crystals!! They are pretty, colorful and sparkly! What’s not to love? So here’s the cool thing about them – they hold higher energetic vibrations than we do. Our body is energy, just like crystals are energy. And we feel the best (and heal faster) when we are in a higher vibration. The difference is that crystal energy is stable and constant (crystalline structure!), whereas our bodies/energy/cells are always changing and easily affected by our surroundings. Ever notice when you say “ugh, that person has bad energy” or when someone else is upset and it can change your mood? That’s energy, and it’s just influenced our own energy. And when our surroundings (people, environments, etc) are affecting our energy in a not-so-great way, especially on a regular basis, our bodies and cells start to change to that energetic frequency and bring our own energetic vibration down.
 
For example, I used to work in a casino (I know, might be hard to believe)… I was trying to save money for college and for an 18-year old, it actually paid well to be a black jack dealer. But here’s the thing – working in a casino is really depressing. It’s fairly dark in there, no windows or daylight, people are allowed to smoke, people are losing money and not happy about it… Not a great environment to be in for 9+ hours a day. So after six months of working there, I started to really dread going into work. I did not enjoy being there. I even started feeling ill before my shift, because the energy of being there and the energy of the people I was interacting with, was negatively affecting me – emotionally, mentally and physically. I stuck it out for another six months, but eventually I had to leave… I was too sensitive to the crummy energy there. I think a lot of people can relate to this, and working jobs they don’t enjoy. Notice how it starts to affect your mindset, your thoughts, and whether you approach your day feeling positive or negative?

Have you ever heard of the phrase “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”? – Jim Rohn
 
That’s because our energy will entrain to the energy that we spend the most time with! The more positive and happy we are, the higher our energetic vibration is, and it will ripple out to the people around us! Laughing is contagious, right?! The more we enjoy life, our environment, and the people in our life, the more our vibration will rise. But if our vibration is lower, we tend to be more pessimistic, stressed, depressed, and not feel that great, and then our bodies start to react accordingly. Have you noticed that when you are stressed, you start to feel the physical repercussions, with aches, pains, fatigue, etc? And the longer this goes on, the more likely it is to turn into something else…
 
This is where crystal healing and energy healing really shine. We store a lot of emotions, traumas, stress, etc in our body. The combination of crystals and energy healing help our bodies release emotions, traumas, stresses, etc, so that we can begin to raise our vibration and feel better. The frequency of each crystal is a match for specific frequencies in your body, which is why specific crystals work best for certain areas of the body and/or emotions. That’s how crystals help with healing, by raising the vibration of your body so that it can heal at the optimal frequency, at an accelerated rate. During a crystal healing session, you can often FEEL the actual vibration shifts in your body, as the crystals raise your vibration for healing/releasing. Wearing crystals (jewelry), or keeping crystals in your pockets are also great ways of benefiting from crystals, in a more subtle way, which is why I often give recommendations after a crystal healing session, so that clients can extend the benefits of the session.
 
I’m getting a bit lengthy here, as this isn’t exactly a topic that can be covered in just a few sentences, but I look forward to sharing more about crystal healing, energy, our bodies & the Chakra energy system, crystals, and how they can benefit you. I’ve got quite a few topics to share with you, and plan to post a new article each week. If you have specific questions, comment below and I’ll either answer directly, or add it to my list to discuss in a future newsletter!
 
I hope you enjoyed this and I look forward to sharing more next week!
