Are you interested in using crystals to activate and integrate your chakras? Do you read everything you can on the subject matter with devout passion? Maybe you’re already a crystal therapist with an active interest in chakras generally.
But maybe recently you’ve noticed a difference in your own or your client’s chakras. Are you starting to see a new pattern emerge in the type of crystals that you are using? Maybe your intuition is telling you that the ‘rules’ on choosing crystals is changing.
Yes? Well, me too.
The 3rd Dimension Chakras
When I first started training as a Crystal Healing therapist in 2004, I was taught how to use crystals on the chakras; essentially on the 3rd Dimension (3D) chakras (see diagram below). I accepted the guidance around using specific coloured crystals on specific chakras with ease. However, by the end of my second year of training in 2006 I was questioning this acceptance. Intuitively something did not feel right. There were times when I was balancing chakras using the traditional coloured crystals and it just didn’t feel like a good fit at all.
I increasingly found that the use of the traditionally coloured stones felt out-dated and was not serving the highest good of my clients. I also found that when I attended training courses, such as Reiki, Aura Soma and colour therapy, that the information relating to the colour that the chakras resonated with left me wanting to shout “but my chakras aren’t that colour”.
Moving into the 4th Dimension and beyond
So what is this all about? What’s happening to our chakras that is leading to a change in the crystals that we use to activate them?
It’s all about Ascension. If a person is on an ascension pathway, and let’s face it most of us are whether we identify as being a ‘lightworker’ or not, they are actively increasing their light quotient. When speaking of light quotient we are referring to the amount of light entering the aura and chakras. Therefore, this light will be transforming their 3D chakras into 4th Dimension (4D) chakras and in some cases into the 5th Dimension. In regard to the colour that chakras resonate with and prescribing appropriate crystals, we now have an added feature to consider.
In 2006 there were fewer people who had integrated and grounded their 4D chakras, but the world has changed. Since 2012, we’ve seen an increase in 4D chakras due to the continued ascension of our planet. In the words of renowned Ascension way shower Sandra Walter:
“We now have a holographic platform for a 4D experience as the collective awakens”
What is Ascension?
Let’s step back a little and talk about ascension and what it actually is. There is often a preconceived notion that to ascend you have to leave your physical body and our Earthly planet. Think for example, Jesus. Now that may have been true 2000 years ago, but not today.
Ascension is the process of raising the light levels within your body. The more light you can integrate, the higher your vibration. Since 2012 there has been a marked increase in the light coming into our planet with significant influxes being experienced in 2016. All sentient being on our planet are affected by this influx of higher energy. This is regardless of whether they are conscious of this or not.
Ascension is a way of life. It’s about our thoughts, beliefs, behaviour and way of being. Diana Cooper highlights the importance of purification in all areas of our lives. It’s about removing elements from our life that no longer serve us or serve humanity. It’s about becoming a Master of your own body and spirit and essentially your way of being. Thankfully though, it’s not something where we have to tackle all our issues at once. Instead we should view Ascension as a journey and not a destination.
What is the difference between 3D and 4D living?
When living a 3D lifestyle you have a physical understanding of life. You only believe what you can see, hear and feel. You live by human laws and have an attitude of blaming other people for the things that are wrong in your life. You fear making change due to the consequences that this may have.
When you live in 4D however, you are more relaxed and trusting of life. You are guided by your intuition and you honour others and the personal journey that they are on. The higher your vibration the greater your service to the whole of humanity.
Choosing Crystals for the Chakras: a new paradigm?
Where does this new world leave us? When using crystals on the chakras you will first have to determine which dimension the chakras are operating within. The easiest way to do this is to ask your inner guidance and intuition for the answer. If you struggle with this then posing a set of questions to a pendulum may be of benefit.
You can also use your intuition to choose the most appropriate crystals for the chakras. In these circumstances the dimension of the chakra is somewhat irrelevant, as you will know you are using the correct crystal regardless. Your intuition is never wrong.
Sometimes however, it is useful to know about specific crystals that can integrate and ground our 4D chakras with relative ease. The list below is by no means exhaustive but here is one set of my favourite crystals for 4D chakras:
|Solar Plexus||Gold||Yellow Sapphire|
|Heart||Violet-Pink||Pink or Lilac Danburite|
|Throat||Deep Violet-Blue||Blue Apatite|
Advice for using 4D chakra crystal layout
I care about ensuring that you get the best out your crystals. It’s for this reason that I’d like to let you in on a couple of common oversights that people can make when using crystals for your 4D chakras.
- Not being grounded – the crystals that are used are of a high vibration therefore please always ensure that you remain grounded. If in doubt hold a small piece of hematite within one of your hands during the treatment.
- Don’t rush ahead into using the 4D chakra layout if you are uncertain that your chakras are ready for the increased vibration. As previously mentioned, Ascension is a journey. There is no hurry, respect and honour the stage you are at without self-judgement.
- Don’t fall into the trap of Old World thinking and dismiss this new information as being impossible or inaccurate. For example, it would be easy to dismiss the use of Selenite on the base chakra. In 3D terms this makes no sense. But suspect your disbelief.
Remember. The vibration at which our chakras spin has speeded up due to the light that they are now integrating. This in turn changes not only their vibration, but also the colour at which they resonate. This is a new world we are living in. The future is ours to own.
After you have read this post I’d love for you to do a couple of things. You’ve taken 10 minutes to read this post so could you take another 10 to determine which dimensional level your chakras are spinning at? I suggest tuning into your intuition or using a pendulum to explore this issue. You might just be surprised by what you discover.
If you have a further 10 minutes, choose your crystals for your chakras and, ensuring that you remain grounded, lay down with the appropriate crystals on each chakra. See how it feels, what comes up for you, do you receive any messages? Keep a journal so you can do this for each treatment and review the information that comes to you through each session.
Next time we’ll look at our 5th Dimension chakras and appropriate crystals to use to develop, activate and anchor these into our physical body.
We’ll also look at how to develop the Earth Star, Casual, Soul Star and Stella Gateway chakras using healing crystals.
Until then, I hope this information serves you well.
