We’ve covered crystals for the root chakra in a previous blog, so now we’re moving up to the solar plexus and sacral chakras. In this blog, we’ll explore crystals that assist with one or both of these chakras. Typically chakra crystals follow a color code. Solar Plexus Chakra crystals are typically yellow and sacral chakra crystals are typically orange. (This is not always true and there are exceptions to this. We will feature one such exception in this list.)
The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with power. Working on this chakra should help you to find confidence in yourself and who you are. It’ll allow you to develop your own perspective, beliefs, and ethics. It allows you to stand firm in your decisions and say “no” when needed. The Sacral Chakra is associated with pleasure. Working on this chakra encourages you to live your life to the fullest and pursue your desires. This chakra is associated with the desires located on the 5th level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which is self-fulfillment.
Carnelian is associated with the sacral chakra. This stone provides creativity, motivation, inspiration, and vitality. Carnelian awakens talent. It boosts energy and analytical precision. This crystal helps improve your connection with the spiritual realm. Carnelian protects against envy, fear, and rage while dispelling apathy, indolence, and passivity.
Sunstone is a joyful, light-inspiring stone. It is associated with the sacral chakra although it is said to cleanse and brighten all of the chakras. This crystal provides an energizing, sunny feeling and encourages optimism and enthusiasm. Sunstone allows the real self to shine through happily. It helps with removing codependency, and it facilitates self-empowerment and independence.
Here is an exception to the previous color code for chakras. Argonite can be found in various shades, usually brown or yellow, but it is associated with the sacral chakra. This crystal is a reliable earth-healer and grounding stone. Aragonite deepens one’s connection with the earth, and it centers and grounds physical energies. Its physical properties include lessening pain, warming extremities, and healing bones. This stone helps with patience and acceptance and is especially good for people who push themselves too hard. Aragonite is also supposed to help you feel comfortable in your own body.
