When indigo is lightened and diffused in crystals, then indigo becomes the ray of connection, having similar power to that of an amethyst colored crystal.

Chakra Balancing and Healing with Indigo Crystals

Indigo crystals can help deal with balance issues and/or blockages of the Third Eye Chakra, the sixth of the seven Chakras.

The Third Eye Chakra is located between your eyebrows, right above the bridge of your nose. This is the center of perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located here. “We” are here. We relate to ourselves through this chakra.

When it is out of balance, the whole organism suffers. Without perspective, nothing makes sense. You will be confused, have difficulty seeing things clearly, and knowing what is important and what is not. You will not have command of your body or your thoughts. You will suffer headaches, earaches, and have vision problems.

Meaning of Seeing Indigo in Dreams or Crystal Readings

When seeing indigo during meditation sessions, crystal readings, dreams, or when doing color card divination, it can have several meanings. Indigo is the color of spiritual abundance and knowledge. It represents integrity, sincerity, responsibility, devotion, truth, and idealism.

How this color needs to be interpreted heavily depends on you, your situation, your life, and any personal connections with the color.

Using Indigo Crystals with Feng Shui

The color indigo in Feng Shui brings us Fire Energy. Most indigo crystals will fall under this energy. If you feel the crystal has more of a blue hue than purple or red, it may have more of the Water Energy element.

Fire energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination, and activity. It is Yang in nature. It is the energy of heat, action, emotion, and passion- of ideas, concepts, and sex. It is alive, potent, but often destructive. We all need the heat, passion, and life-giving energy of the fire element. It is a powerful element that must be used in moderation.

In traditional Feng Shui, Fire energy is associated with the south area of a home or room. It is associated with the fame and reputation area of your life and dwelling. Use its energy to give your life the boost it needs to enhance your standing in the community and within your family.

Fire energy is symbolized by red hues such as red, violet, amethyst, and orange. Use these colors of crystals to enhance any space that you use for high-energy activities. Use the red hues of crystals to bring the sun’s power and the fire element’s energy to your life and home. Charge up a space with these crystals. Spring into action with their energy.
