I recently purchased an 11pc. tumbled sto ne chakra set. I'm looking to calm ,if not lessen, as well as cool my energy system. I'd appreciate any insight. Additionally, what stones would be recommended for addiction?
Thank you so much for your question. I'm so glad that you've got a Chakra set since they are wonderful for healing and supporting both your physical and mental systems.
You mentioned that you are interested in "calming" your system. I would concentrate your efforts on where you are feeling the most stress in your body. For instance if you get an upset stomach, then work on your Solar Plexus area. If you get headaches then your Third Eye and/or Crown Chakra. Try lying down for a few minutes and placing the crystal directly on the chakra and see how it feels. Set the intention that you want any stress to be cleared from that area. While it may take some time to see more lasting results, I believe that you will notice an immediate difference if the crystal is the right one for you. If something doesn't feel right, try another crystal - or try two different crystals. While the sets come with specific crystals for specific chakras you should always feel comfortable experimenting to see what works best for you which may be one or multiple chakras and crystals. Amethyst is a very calming stone and you may find that clears your solar plexus of stress better than the crystal that is specified for that chakra.
No matter which chakra you are clearing I very strongly suggest that you use a crystal on your Heart chakra. As the bridge between the upper and lower chakras it is one of the most important and I've found that working on the Heart chakra can often bring about wonderful healing results. I like a Malachite and/or a Rose Quartz for the Heart Chakra.
You also mentioned that you were looking for crystals to heal addictions. Black Tourmaline and Amethyst are very powerful crystals to assist with overcoming addiction. I also really like a Lepidolite - I think you would find that a very useful all-purpose crystal to bring about calm and ease stress. For more crystals check our Issues and Ailments guide on the home page of the website. Addictions is located under Physical Ailments.
Please remember that crystals are for healing and should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.

Thank you again for your question C.J. and I hope that you enjoy your Chakra set. We'd love to hear from you again.
