Chakra kits are groups of healing crystals that are sold together with a stone to use for healing each of the chakras.
Some kits have seven stones but many contain nine stones or more.
Anyone who wants to take responsibility for their own healing may choose to buy the various healing crystals.
This allows you to use them in the correct combination for healing all of the chakras.
You can buy them ready made, or put your own together! So who needs a chakra kit?
While you may buy one ready made, you could also make one up yourself. If you buy one, you may simply go ahead and use it.
There are many healing crystals for you to use, so if you own a number
of crystals you might already have the stones you need on hand.
Often you may find that when you either buy or put together such a kit you may be particularly drawn to one of the stones.
It is a common reaction, and is a sign that the universal mind is prompting you to heal the bodily area that the chakra stone governs.
The chakra kit usually has at least seven stones, one to use for each of the seven major chakras. Look at the stones in the photo above.
There are eight stones in that photo, one for each major chakra and the higher heart, and you may notice that there is a stone in each major chakra color.
These stones are a common combination to be found in many kits.
Some kits have nine or ten stones as they add extra chakra stones, for the chakra above the head, the one below the feet, as well as the higher heart.
The chakra above the head, the eighth chakra is called the soul star chakra, and it is located above the crown chakra.
The earth star chakra is located below the feet, and as mentioned above, it is also beneficial to add in a stone for the higher heart, the area related to compassion for others.
There are also other transpersonal chakras, but it is rare for kits to contain stones for these chakras. This combination is the most advantageous, as it grounds you to the earth and connects you to spirit, and to your higher heart.
Specific colors and sounds or vibrations are connected with each chakra.
For healing each of these chakras you use those respective colors. Healing crystals of the specific colors will work to heal individual chakras.
There are various stones of other colors that can be used as well. Once you know the chakra meanings it may be easier to acquire the crystals you wish to use.
Work on healing yourself with one of these combinations of chakra stones. It means that you are working on all chakras simultaneously.
This will create a much stronger healing outcome than using one stone alone for an individual chakra. My suggestion would be that you meditate while lying with the stones in place.
Allow yourself to visualize what healing outcome you require. As you make that Divine connection, you will receive what you need from the universe.
The benefit of ready made chakra kits are that these often have detailed instructions on suggested ways to use them.
There are many crystal books available that show you how to do crystal healing with detailed body layouts.
It is possible that they may suggest using different combinations of stones, and use these for different healing outcomes.
Have fun experimenting with the combinations. It will all be interesting information to learn and meditating with your crystals will improve your life for the better.
Its easy to use the combinations of stones that has been chosen for this task. You may find that you can assist yourself in healing your own body.
Using these crystals in your own home may be of benefit for those of you who prefer to take responsibility for your own health and personal growth.
Often when you buy chakra kits they may also provide body layouts. These are diagrams explaining how to lay the crystals on your body, to heal yourself.
Most suggest that you lie down either on the floor or a bed, just make sure you are comfortable. You then place the stone that pertains to that chakra on that area of your body.
Place the stone for the soul star a few inches above your head and the stone for the earth star a few inches below your feet.
The higher heart is between the heart and the throat, a little to your left. Then you simply lie back and relax, and allow the energy to do its work.
Please see the list below with the stones that are my choice for you to use. I chose these as they are ones that have a strong enough vibration for most people to feel.
As well most of these are quite easy to source. Many are ones that may be commonly sold in chakra kits, but there are a few less common ones as well.
Herkimer Diamond, Selenite, Clear Quartz
Violet and White
Ametrine, Sugilite or Lilac Lepidolite
Purple and Indigo
Amethyst, Tanzanite or Charoite
Lapis Lazuli, Blue Lace Agate or Larimar
Pink and Turquoise
Tugtupite, Morganite, Dioptase or Rose Quartz
Green and Pink
Rose Quartz, Green Aventurine, Morganite, Kunzite or Emeralds
Citrine Crystals, Golden Labradorite, Amber, Honey Calcite or Yellow Apatite

These stones shown here are also stones that are often used in kits that you may buy ready made.
Many kits will just have the main seven chakras, and omit the soul star, higher heart and earth star chakras, so you will possibly need to add stones for these if you buy a ready made kit.
Check out places that sell chakra kits to see what is available, so that you can decide which way to go. Enjoy the healing using these will bring you.
As you can see there are a number of stones that you may choose to create your own chakra kit.
The reason for choosing the ones on the list is that they are usually stones that are easy to obtain, and they are stones which I have written an in-depth page about.
