Basic Tips:
1. Generally the darker the stone the lower the chakra it balances, the lighter of clearer the stone the higher.
2. If you need a stone for a chakra you will feel something while holding or having it close by- generally a positive reaction (warmth, vibration, etc.)
3. If you have a negative or repulsed feeling towards a stone you may actually need that stone but you might not be ready to release what is necessary to use that stone just yet. Don’t force it.
4. If at all possible, know your source of the stone. Know how many hands it has touched before you- get it as directly as possible, and better yet if you can purchase a stone that has been cleared/charged before it gets to you that is best. Stones/crystals pick up energy indifferently.
5. When you meditate or use your stone hold it in your non-dominant hand or place it in the area of the chakra.
6. The easiest way to charge a stone is with good intention through meditation, one technique does not fit all for cleansing or clearing techniques. Some techniques may actually damage or dull your stone, so the safest is putting energy in and intention.
