Heart Chakra Crystals
The healing properties of heart chakra crystals drastically increase your kindness, empathy, and level of trust.
Living through neglect, abuse, and trauma can all drastically affect how aligned your heart chakra is.
This post features 21 of the best crystals to help you balance, open, and activate your heart chakra.
WHAT IS THE HEART CHAKRA?
The heart chakra (Anahata) is the fourth chakra, and it deals with compassion, balance, and harmony.
The heart chakra rules:
⭐ How you relate to others
When the heart chakra is aligned, balanced, and open, we can give compassion and love to ourselves (and others!) much more freely.
This means the more you work on your heart chakra, the more you’ll be transformed into seeing just how important having boundaries is.
Having boundaries isn’t selfish, and the heart chakra encourages you to see that boundaries are vital in balancing and harmonizing your life.

SIGNS OF IMBALANCED HEART CHAKRA:
💔 Overly defensive
💔 Holding grudges
💔 Isolating yourself
💔 Having a savior complex
💔 Chest pain
💔 Respiratory problems
💔 Hot flashes
💔 Heart palpitations

Why use crystals for the heart chakra?
Spirituality has drastically improved my life — especially my inner child healing journey — in so many ways that I never thought were possible.
Crystals are a big part of that.
I like to think of crystals as bringing nature inside.
When you’re out in nature, the sun, the rain, the clouds, the grass, the trees, rivers, lakes, and oceans…they all help ground us and make us feel connected to the earth.
Bringing crystals indoors helps bring these healing properties into your environment and surround you with their benefits.
How to Use Crystals:
Depending on your situation and which method you prefer, crystals can be used for healing the heart chakra in so many different ways ⤵️
⭐ Surrounding Space: Place them around your home, especially on nightstands, window sills, desks, and by electronics. Put them in your pillowcase while you sleep.
⭐ On Your Body: Carry them around with you in your pocket or purse. Wear them as a necklace or bracelet.
⭐ Meditate: Hold them during meditation or hold them when you feel anxious, stressed, or sad.
The main thing to note is to use crystals with intention.
Crystals work best at healing your heart chakra when you use them with purpose.

🧹 Soak in water (some crystals will disintegrate in water, like Selenite)
🧹 Smoke cleansing
🧹 Bury them in the earth, soil, or clay

You can also cleanse your crystals in the same ways I cleanse my tarot decks.
