Lately, with Mercury in retrograde…again.., I have been more drawn to throat chakra healing stones, such the amazing Amazonite. When Mercury goes into retrograde, all forms of communication go completely berserk, so it is important to focus our intentions on balancing the energies of the throat chakra. Since this chakra is also the channel in which the universal energies flow to all other chakras, it is especially important to try to keep it as balanced and healthy as possible.
How do you know which stones to use?
If you have no problem seeing and identifying colors, then you can easily identify which stones to work with for different ailments. Each chakra in the system of seven chakras coordinates with a color or group of colors.
- Red – Root Chakra
- Orange – Sacral Chakra
- Yellow – Solar Plexus Chakra
- Green – Heart Chakra
- Blue – Throat Chakra
- Indigo – Third Eye Chakra
- Purple/clear – Crown Chakra
As you learn about each chakra and the parts of body and mind that each rule, then you will gain an understanding of where exactly you are out of balance. Once you can identify which chakras are most out of alignment, then you can start working with the coordinating stones.
Since we are talking about the throat chakra here, then we would be on the hunt for stones in the blue family.
Amazonite comes in beautiful shades of blue-green/teal/aqua/turquoise. Since these colors straddle the lines of blue and green, Amazonite is a useful stone for both the throat and the heart chakras.
