Seeking Balance: Align Your Chakras

It's good to feel good. It's good to feel fine. (gotta song in my head . . .) So, the question is, "How does one find balance in order to achieve feeling good and fine?"

The first step is to have the awareness that something is out of balance. The second step is to uncover what the out of balance condition is and then take action to recapture feeling good. Emotions are elusive. Some people aren't wired to acknowledge their feelings but will act out in other ways. Others emote every day in every way. One way of being or the other is not good or bad, it just is.

Ultimately, the goal is to regain balance. There are many tools available to achieve this goal. Journaling can help you get in touch with your feelings. Dream analysis will help you recognize buried issues. Working with color and gemstones are beneficial.

Kyanite, pictured above, is a gemstone that is reputed to "align the chakras with or without conscious direction." Add your intention that you wish to feel balanced and aligned while holding kyanite. You can also place a piece of kyanite into your pillow case while you sleep, on your desk while you work or in your pocket, purse or brief case. Every time you look at the kyanite it will remind you of your intention and help you achieve your goal. What you focus on is what creates your reality.

What gemstones do you use to help you feel balanced?

Hi Margaret, it's Anthony from Jamar's...
...I find Kyanite makes a useful "Scanner" and Selenite works here as well:
Standing straight, arms loose, > exhale, hold stone before root chakra, slowly inhale, raise stone up, up, up along to the crown and above... and...
As far as Balancing?
-Magnetite, no question.
One (or some) in each hand, or even better: lay down, place magnetites on the thin skin of the wrists. Since all of our blood passes through these areas, the iron rich stones are good to share a little osmosis with. Hematite may also do well here.
The idea is to ground the system, charge & align the little magnetic bits in the blood.
Shaman Stones, Boji's, etc. all have wonderful lessons about fields of energy, polarities and wave circuits... Fascinating stuff really, and when it clicks...
Aw, well.....
