When you are attempting to balance chakra energy the first, most important thing you can do is to ground your body's energy. It sounds like we're preparing for a lightening strike or something doesn't it? Hopefully it's nothing that drastic, but we are attaching the body's natural, energetic pulse to the earth. That's the first step necessary in restoring your body's energy flow. And here's how you do it.
Sit quietly in a chair and close your eyes. You can play soft music if you like, or you can enjoy the blissful silence around you. Relax. Let the tension ease from the top of your head, down through your neck and shoulders. Feel the muscles in your arms relax. Your hands rest limply at your sides. Tension drops away from your chest. Suddenly it's easier to breathe. Relaxation slides over you - past your hips, thighs, down your calves and through the bottom of your feet.
Now imagine pulling a thread of white light to you somewhere

Crystals are very beneficial for energy work. Certain crystals hold specific properties for clearing and balancing chakras. Smokey Quartz is a good, dependable grounding stone for all the chakras. Amber is an excellent cleansing stone for them and Tourmaline and Garnet will help protect them. You can lay down and place the stones on the floor above your Crown Chakra, or place them directly on any of the chakra points on your body, front or back. Don't pick and choose the chakras to work on, however. If you're going to clear and ground one, clear and ground them all.
Below is a table of suggested crystals to use for balancing and restoring the chakras.
