Chakra Balancing and Healing with Yellow Crystals

Yellow crystals can help deal with balance issues and/or blockages of the Solar Plexus Chakra, the third of the seven Chakras.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located between the ribcage and navel. It controls the immune system and digestive systems.

When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as a low tolerance to infection, you may suffer from hormone disorders, or have a low tolerance for many foods. You will feel fear: fear of the displeasure of others, and disappointing others, or fear of subordinating your life and pleasures to the will of others.

Meaning of Seeing Yellow in Dreams or Crystal Readings

When seeing yellow during meditation sessions, crystal readings, dreams, or when doing color card divination, it can have several meanings. Yellow is the color of optimism, fun, humor, creativity, confidence, cheerfulness, wisdom, logic, and focus. Since this color makes us more analytical and critical, it can mean that you are being too critical of yourself or others, too.

How this color needs to be interpreted heavily depends on you, your situation, your life, and any personal connections with the color. For example, if red is one of your parent's favorite colors, that should be added to the list as a possible interpretation.

Using Yellow Crystals with Feng Shui

The color yellow in Feng Shui brings us Fire Energy. Dark and deeply muted yellow crystals may have more of an Earth 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.
