In last week's "Charging Crystals for Your Root Chakra" I went over how to charge your crystals. There are a variety of crystals for the sacral chakra including, Carnelian (one of my personal favorites) Citrine, Orange Calcite,Milky Quartz,Moonstone and Selenite. A blocked sacral chakra can create patterns of control or abusive behavior. An overactive sacral chakra often leads to disorders like depression or bipolar disorder. If your feeling needy and constantly in need of reassurance this is a sign you have an over active sacral chakra is overactive. Perhaps you're creative but you lack confidence in your work and find it difficult to accept criticism. Creativity and emotions towards self and others are controlled in this chakra. Since human beings need love and validation it's important to keep this chakra in balance for healthy relationships.
To use these stones you can wear them as jewelry easily. You can also meditate with them placing a stone just below your navel during your meditation. Imagine the negative energy leaving your body and the positive energy from the stone entering. If you are suffering from a serious blockage in this area affecting your physical or mental health I would suggest visiting a reiki practitioner. The practitioner acts as a channel in allowing you to release the energy easier.
Another way to use the crystals is in a healing ceremony which you can do for yourself. I will discuss this more tomorrow when I post about herbs for the sacral chakra.
