How to Open Your Root Chakra with Crystals


    In this post, we go over how to open your root chakra with crystals.

    The root chakra is the first of the seven primary chakra, also known as the Muladhara chakra, and it can be found around the sacrum or coccyx. This is responsible for maintaining a healthy body, a feeling of oneness with the planet, and a sense of being supported and stable in the material world are all under its purview.

    Origins of the root chakra and the chakra system

    Between 1500 and 500 BC, India is credited with being the birthplace of the chakra system. An ancient text known as the Vedas was the first to mention seven primary chakras and to introduce the energy system.

    The first of the seven energy centers, also known as the root chakra, is associated with the element of earth and the planet itself. The root chakra is referred to as the Muladhara Chakra in Sanskrit. This name is derived from two Sanskrit words: Mula, which translates to “root,” and adhara, which means “support” or “base.” The subtle body energy system consists of seven chakras: the root chakra, the sacral chakra, the heart chakra, the throat chakra, the third eye chakra, and the crown chakra after the root chakra comes to the sacral chakra.

    A “spinning wheel” of energy best describes what is meant by the term “chakra.” The primary chakras can be located from the tailbone to the pinnacle of the head. The concepts of the seven chakras were brought to the Western world by tantric yoga traditions in the 1880s. As a result of the numerous benefits associated with them, these concepts are becoming increasingly studied and practiced.


    Healing Crystals for Root Chakra

    Three crystals can help restore balance to the root chakra: red jasper, lava or basalt, and smoky quartz. Each of these can be found in nature.

    Red Jasper

    People often call red jasper “the Nurturer’s Stone” or “the Supreme Nurturer.” It’s easy to overlook because it’s not as bright or colorful as other crystals, but it’s a very important to have in your crystal healing kit.

    Red jasper is a great stone for grounding, and it does the following:

    • It immediately lowers stress and anxiety and gives you a sense of calm.
    • It can help you gain confidence, strength, patience, and understanding, which can help you get through a hard time better.
    • Red jasper can help you have more faith in yourself.
    • It helps people deal with deep problems and make peace with the past.
    • It helps fix a low libido, a common sign of a blocked Root Chakra. It is also great for helping with sexual abuse, body shame, and sexual problems.
    • The stone is great for clearing and stabilizing the aura.
    • It helps with the body’s circulation.
    • It can help people break bad habits like using drugs or alcohol too much, having eating disorders, or having bad sex relationships.

    How to clear the root chakra with red jasper

    You can use red jasper in a few ways:

    • Putting a stone in each hand to feel calm and peaceful.
    • Lay down and put a rock on your root chakra.
    • Stay still for 5–10 minutes.
    • Put a piece of red jasper between your feet to bring your energy back into balance.
    • Put your hands on a red jasper orb to help you feel more grounded.

    Smokey Quartz

    Smokey Quartz is an excellent choice for a variety of reasons, including the fact that it possesses extraordinary healing and cleansing properties:

    • It is an incredible stone for grounding oneself.
    • It is an excellent option for dissipating the negative energy that has built up in your auric field.
    • It is very effective at relieving physical discomfort, particularly in the hands and the feet, and is great for releasing bodily congestion in the lower parts of the anatomy.
    • You can use it to restore your energy levels after recovering from an illness or use it while undergoing energy-sapping radiation therapy such as chemotherapy.
    • Clearing and rebalancing your energy flow is one of the ways that it can assist you in recovering from a traumatic experience.
    • This stone is also wonderful for releasing negative energy, including painful and heavy emotions like grief, anger, fear, and jealousy. It does this by breaking down the bonds that hold them together.

    How to use smoky quartz to realign your root chakra

    • To cleanse oneself of negative energy, place a pointed piece of smoky quartz between one’s feet, with the point pointing away from the body.
    • You can enter a more blissful state of mind through meditation with the assistance of smoky quartz, which is an excellent meditation aid. You can hold a piece of smoky quartz in your hand or wear the crystal on your body as a bracelet or necklace.
    • While lying down for 10 to 15 minutes, place a stone so that it is directly over your root chakra.


    Lava is a very popular stone for various reasons; however, it is particularly useful for unblocking energy flow in the root chakra and helping you feel more connected to the earth. It is also known as basalt and lava rock, and it is produced when liquid lava cools and solidifies under extreme heat and pressure conditions.

    In addition to being a wonderfully settling and focusing stone, lava also possesses the following properties and benefits:

    • It instantly connects you to the Earth as your mother.
    • It reduces the feelings of jitteriness, vertigo, and confusion that you may be experiencing.
    • It has a calming effect.
    • It enables you to enter into a state of Zen harmony more easily.

    How To Use Lava for Chakra Alignment

    • You can quiet a racing mind and ease into a state of profound, grounded relaxation by placing a piece of lava on your forehead.
    • While meditating, try to relax by holding a piece of lava in each hand. This should help.
    • For immediate relief from anxiety, lie down and place it on the area of your lower abdomen that corresponds to the root chakra.
