Balance your Heart Chakra and encourage self-love.  Open up your heart to all the love in the world when you wear Crystals!


Welcome back to my series on How to Balance your Chakras.

In the last three installments, we learned about the energy centers of the body, the meridians, and the crystals used to help balance and open up those centers for optimum health. If you need a refresher on the principles, you can find the first three Chakra properties and crystals here.

We touched on my experience with crystals in the first installment. When I started to wear crystal jewelry I noticed a positive change in my behavior, ambition and lifestyle choices. Crystals are also the inspiration for the book series I’m writing. They are the main theme for this blog and the products I feature on Pinterest, Instagram, and my Facebook Page.  Take a look and be sure to follow me!


I find an easy way to include crystals in your every day is through home decor. I have items such as large geodes, salt lamps, wall art and carved sculptures placed around my home.

Here is a beautiful Crystal Inspiration from Anthropologie.

Another simple way to have crystals in your everyday life is to wear crystal jewelry.  I wear mine at all times for protection from negative energy and as amplifiers to keep my energy balanced.  When I feel calm, my intuition comes through, and I can focus on the important things in life. Those things include my partner Derek, our crazy adventures as Crystal Hunters, and growing our online business.

My go-to piece of jewelry is my Chakra Healing Bracelet from Energy Muse. I really don’t feel like myself when I leave it at home, which isn’t often!

The Chakra Bracelet has 21 healing crystals which relate to each of your 7 Chakras. We will discuss each of these stones throughout this series.

My creativity for my books and the flood of ideas started when I found crystals. This drive to build our business stems from the energy of the crystals in our home, and from the jewelry we wear.

In this installment, we’ll delve into the 4th Chakra called the Heart Chakra. We’ll take a brief look at the properties of this Chakra and the crystals which help keep it clear and balanced.

We associate the Heart with our 4th Chakra although the gland responsible for its energy is the Thymus.  This gland regulates our immune system and keeps us healthy.

The element associated with this Chakra is Air, and its colors are green and pink. Common foods eaten to heal blockages are vegetables and greens, for instance, Spinach has the ability to cleanse and balance our entire bodies.

Although this is called the Heart Chakra, it is not necessarily meant to heal or attract romantic love. It helps to stimulate ALL encompassing love. When our Heart Chakra is not balanced, we do not feel empathy or love towards others nor ourselves. This can lead to circulatory issues and heart disease. Feelings of frustration and anger towards others and ourselves results in high stress and illness.

When we work on issues relating to the heart like emotional trauma, grief, and sadness we can prevent heart problems. Letting these emotions out and having a good cry is very therapeutic and heals your soul.

When we balance and heal our emotional issues, the practice of self-love along with empathy towards others can lead to a more healthy life and heart.


Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Crystal Healing, Rose Quartz, CrystalsMost of us will recognize Rose Quartz as the crystal used to cleanse and balance the Heart Chakra, as it opens the heart up to love. It also teaches you the true essence of love by clearing this Chakra to allow inner healing and self-love.

When you love who you are, you will attract someone who will grow to love you too. Self-love is so important because when you stop comparing yourself to others, you can focus on what makes you happy.

At one point in my life, I did not like myself.  I was forever worried about what other people thought and compared my behind the scenes life to their public triumphs.  Since crystals have come into my life, especially Rose Quartz, I like myself more every day.  I find I don’t pay attention to what others are doing and focus on what I need to do instead.

Rose Quartz opens your heart and lifts you up, so you feel fulfilled when others return the love you ignite in them. This crystal provides optimism and problem-solving in a place of love.

An affordable way to have the added benefit of Rose Quartz with you all the time is with Love Junkie necklace from Energy Muse. This dainty crystal necklace will compliment any look. You will radiate beauty from the sparkle in  your eyes to your beautiful smile when you wear this piece. This necklace has to do with all things love, happiness, pure joy and all the pleasantries in life.

AFFIRMATION: “Let there be Love.”


Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Aventurine, Crystal HealingAventurine is another favorite crystal of mine for the heart Chakra. I am drawn to this stone because it is an all around healing stone bringing emotional calm and well-being. It’s a crystal of protection from electromagnetic pollution and it dissolves negative emotions.

This stone enables you to live within your heart, by dispelling anger and irritation, it allows you to be aware of your true feelings. I use this stone to help me get to the bottom of my anger blow ups. Why I am I freaking out over something insignificant? What are the real reasons? I dig deeper with this stone to figure out my emotional issues. It is also a lucky stone, and it doesn’t hurt to have one of those in your pocket or as jewelry.


Balance Your Chakras, Heart Chakra, Leopard Skin Jasper, CrystalsLeopard Skin Jasper helps you pay attention to the people who are helpful and conducive to your personal growth.  It reminds you to help others in return and attracts harmonious vibrations into your life.  Jasper is a supreme nurturing stone, and it helps you attain what you need on your journey.
