Sample Root Chakra Body Layout

The objective of this body layout is to assist in balancing and opening the Root Chakra.

Crystals/Material Used
1 Black Kyanite blade, 2 Hematite, 2 small Clear Quartz points, 2 Black Tourmaline, 1 Brecciated Jasper, Patchouli essential oil, carrier oil, cloth/wet wipe, and red candle.

Select a quiet area where you will be comfortably lying down. You may choose to light candles, incense, play music, nature sounds, or any other methods that help you to relax. Place a few drops of Patchouli essential oil into a carrier oil and gently massage into feet. You may also diffuse the oil if you prefer. Check with doctor and vet (if you have pets), before using an EO. Place the Black Kyanite blade between your thighs with the point facing up toward your body. Place the Brecciated Jasper on your genitals, OR you can place a flat Jasper on your tailbone beneath you. You can also skip this part if you are uncomfortable. Place the Hematite on each hip bone (or next to hips) and Quartz points facing upwards on the top of thighs. Place Black Tourmaline in each hand. Relax. Listen to your breathing, heartbeat, or nature sounds. Imagine glorious Earth energy coming up through your Root Chakra. You may also imagine a red spinning ball of energy. Lie in this position for about 20 minutes or for as long as you feel is comfortable for you. As with all meditations or wellness sessions, sit up slowly and stand only when ready. Give gratitude for what you have received and enjoy a nice glass of water.

I am safe and secure, grounded and have all that I need.

Root Chakra Crystal Grid

This crystal grid sits on top of a red mat. The grid includes a Clear Quartz Channeler as the center piece, 4 rough Black Tourmaline, 4 tumbled Black Onyx, 4 tumbled Tourmalated Quartz, 6 tumbled Tiger Iron, 8 Clear Quartz points and a Black Tourmaline and Quartz anklet. I placed each set of 4 crystals in a square formation since squares represent foundation, grounding, and the Earth. All of these are wonderful choices for the Root Chakra and the Clear Quartz is for amplifying the energy. The anklet is being charged for later use.
