crystal meaning at a glance:
PROTECTION + ELECTROMAGNETISM - having been exposed to radiation during its formation, smoky quartz dispels electromagnetic waves from electronic devices, which is healing for our wellbeing in the modern world. We've also found it effective at shamanic force field work; fortifying our energy field; protecting our auras. Protection is a popular theme in this industry - be it from negative energies in human or spirit form, or from computers. If we obsess over this, we run the risk of attracting these fears to us in some perverse reverse psychology. This is manifestation in action: where the mind goes, energy flows. That said, negative energy does exist and if you sleep better with a protective crystal by your bed, then go for it.
The chakras are energy portals found in the body. Dotted from the top of the crown to the soles of the feet, they are aligned within our physical form and are susceptible to blockages and imbalances when emotions aren't processed properly e.g. shock, trauma.
ROOT CHAKRA - ruby-red and responsible for making us feel rooted, grounded and safe, when out of alignment, the root chakra can lead us to feel unstable, wobbly, anxious, floaty, without purpose or direction. When people experience a lack of abundance, passion or lustful experiences, it can be due to a blockage here.
EARTH STAR CHAKRA - of the transpersonal chakras, this black energy centre is located at the feet and is shaped like a disc, or vinyl. Like the root, this space is also associated with connection to self and surroundings.
Smoky quartz is a tonic to both these chakras, but has positive, healing effects on the entire energy system.
