Creating Intentions + Crystal Supports

Creating Intentions + Crystal Support

by Jessica Hoch of Moxie Malas

Creating intentions is a powerful way to draw what you desire into your life and what better way to support those energies than with crystals! In this PDF you will find an exercise to see what areas of your life might need support, as well as information about the 7 chakras with stones and crystals to help balance each of them. 

12 Areas of Balance

📚 I love to include education into my parties when sharing about Moxie Malas. This is an exercise I teach at my workshops. I'll leave this here with you tonight and share more in the morning!

📖 This exercise comes from the book "Code of the Extraordinary Mind" by Vishen Lakhiani. He is the owner and creator of Mindvalley. He goes on to say that we want to have balance in these 12 areas of our life. So we are going to check in and see how we’re doing!

This is how it works….

✅ Rate each category from 1-10 with how satisfied you are with that area of your life. 1 being not satisfied and 10 being very satisfied. So each category is going to get it’s own rating.

✅ Then you can evaluate which 3 areas have the lowest scores. This is a good indicator of where you might need some extra support right now.

💗 While you are going through this give yourself some compassion and try not to attach to the outcome. Remember this is just right now and can be used as an awesome starting point. If you have a tie in a couple of the areas, think about which one would have a trickle down effect on the others.

This will help you see where you might need a little extra support.

🔟 If you score all 10’s - heck yeah! But remember not to attach too much to that either. Life is always ebbing and flowing.

The 7 Chakras + Supporting Crystals

The 7 Chakras are major energy centers in the body represented by spinning wheels of light. Each one has a color, element, mantra, symbol and name. These are the things we will be covering in our workshop and in this PDF.


root chakra

 Muladhara - Root Chakra

❤️ Our Root Chakra is found at the base of the spine and pelvic floor area. This is our foundation. Our Root Chakra represents our most basic needs such as food, shelter, income, safety etc. It is also the energy center of our Tribe - our innermost circle of people. Meaning our immediate family and those we live with and share our lives with. This does NOT include extended family or friendships.

❤️ When our Root Chakra is balanced we feel supported, safe and like our needs are being met. We have a strong sense of family and strong family bonds.

⬆️ If we have an overactive Root Chakra this is where emotions like panic, anxiety and fear creep in. This is because we may be feeling like our needs aren’t being met and there is uncertainty in our safety.

⬇️ If we have an underactive Root Chakra this leads to feeling ungrounded. So things like daydreaming, having trouble focusing, and commitment issues can come up.

💎 Stones and crystals to help balance the Root Chakra:

  • Onyx - protection and stability
  • Smoky quartz - turns negative energy into positive energy
  • Shungite - transformation, EMF protection
  • Hematite - grounding and stabilizing
  • Larvikite - inner knowledge, intuition
  • Garnet - energizes all chakras, passion, drive
  • Brecciated Jasper - strength and vitality
  • Mushroom Rhyolite - soothes, balances, stabilizes

sacral chakra

Svadhisthana - Sacral Chakra

🧡 Our Sacral Chakra resides in our pelvis, hips and low back. It is the energy center of inspiration, ideation, creativity, vitality, sensuality, sexuality and our emotions. Our Sacral Chakra is our pleasure center and the area that helps us to indulge in things that bring us joy, pleasure and bliss. This is also our energy center of 1:1 relationships with people outside of our tribe, including friends, extended family and even co-workers.

🧡 When our Sacral Chakra is balanced we feel inspired and playful, we have vibrant relationships with people in our lives and we have sort of this charisma to us. We feel connected to and honor our sensual selves and our sexuality. In relation to our emotions we feel them and move through them easily, using them as a roadmap rather than a dead-end. We can appreciate and fully embody the pleasures of our lives.

⬆️ If we have an overactive Sacral Chakra this is when we are overindulging in all of life’s pleasures to the point of personal harm. Things like addiction, codependency to pleasurable experiences, and emotional overreactions.

⬇️ If we have an underactive Sacral Chakra this is when we lose sight of the things that bring us pleasure and joy, either because of fear or other feelings of unworthiness creeping in. This is when we are all work and no play. If your second chakra lulls you may be experiencing things like depression, lack of inspiration and lack of sex drive or even turmoil in your relationships.

💎 Stones and Crystals to help balance the Sacral Chakra:

  • Mahogany Obsidian - relieves tension, removes energetic blocks
  • Red Jasper - balance, energy, strength, stamina
  • Goldstone - keeps emotions stable and calm, ambition
  • Carnelian - creativity, motivation, positivity
  • Orange Agate - removes fear and anxiety
  • Redline Marble - calm, creativity, inspiration
  • Sunstone - playfulness, happiness, restores joy

solar plexus chakra

Manipura - Solar Plexus Chakra

💛 Our third chakra or Solar Plexus Chakra is known as the “City of Jewels” or our “Sacred Gem”. This is where we hold our light or our fire. In Ayurveda this fire is called Agni and it’s our ability to digest. Our third chakra is our energy center of digestion, literally with food, but also with life’s experiences. This is where we take all of the input of our lives and distill it into wisdom. It is also the energy center of confidence, self-worth, self-esteem, and personal power.

💛 When this energy center is balanced we step into our power and have a sense of self-respect, self-worth and a healthy level of self-esteem. This is when our light shines the brightest and we are best able to serve those around us.

⬆ If our third chakra is overactive this is where ego creeps in. Personal power and confidence sometimes get mistaken as ego, but ego is when you have an unhealthy attachment to your own importance. This is also when people will use their power in an abusive or harmful way. Narcissism would also fall into this category.

⬇ If our third chakra is underactive we lose sight of our light and we forget our own awesomeness. Our light dims and we have a lull in confidence, self-worth, self-esteem and self-respect. This is also when we might be having a hard time digesting life.

💎 Stones and Crystals to help balance our Solar Plexus Chakra:

  • Tiger Iron - energetically dynamic, self-healing, personal power
  • Tiger Eye - focus, clarity, protection, fearlessness
  • Yellow Mookaite - stone of here and now, present moment
  • Yellow Jade - stability, balance, loving relationships, luck, wisdom
  • Yellow Crazy Lace Agate - radiant joy, happiness, laughter
  • Calcite - hope, enthusiasm, personal power
  • Citrine - clarity, optimism, enthusiasm, and personal power

 heart chakra

Anahata - Heart Chakra

💚 The heart chakra is a very special energy center, not only because it embodies love, it is the center of the 7. There are 108 energy lines that intersect at our heart center.

The first 3 chakras are very much about our external experience and the tangible realm. The top 3 chakras are about our internal experiences and the metaphysical realm. The Heart Chakra is the center of it all - connecting our inner and outer worlds, the connection between heaven and earth so to speak. Anahata is all about love.

💚 When our heart chakra is balanced is when we see the absolute best in humanity and in ourselves. We see qualities like empathy, compassion, forgiveness, love and understanding shine. These qualities are not only from us to others but also shown to ourselves internally. Your capacity to love and forgive others is a reflection of your ability to do the same for yourself.

⬆ It is possible for our heart chakra to be overactive. Your first thought might be “how can there be such a thing as too much love?”, but it’s a sneaky thing. This is when attachment comes in and things like codependency in relationships show up. Or things like obsession with something.

⬇ If your heart chakra is underactive this can be for a multitude of reasons. This may be a heartache or heartbreak over something not going how you had hoped, whether that be a relationship or situation. This happens when experiencing grief as well. Balancing the heart chakra is not about discrediting powerful emotions such as grief it’s more about moving through the experience in a balanced and full spectrum way.

💎 Stones and Crystals to balance the Heart Chakra:

  • Malachite - transformation, deep healing
  • Jade - emotional healing, relieves irritability, eliminates negativity
  • Aventurine - friendship, abundance, prosperity
  • Prehnite - increases and stimulates energy with balance of inner calm
  • Lucky Jade - good fortune, friendship, protection, harmony
  • Rose Quartz - universal stone of love
  • Rhodonite - self-love, forgiveness
  • Unakite - unconditional love

Throat Chakra

Vissudha - Throat Chakra

💙 Our Throat Chakra is our energy center of communication and self-expression. This can be spoken word, written communication, music, the way we dress, and any other way of expressing ourselves.

💙 When our Throat Chakra is balanced we speak our truth with clarity and compassion, we choose our words wisely and express ourselves with intention.

⬆ If we have an overactive Throat Chakra this is when our speech or self-expression is harmful to others or if we’re not expressing truth. So things like gossip, harmful lyrics in a song or hate speech.

⬇ If we have an underactive Throat Chakra this is when we have a hard time expressing ourselves. We may not be able to find the words to express ourselves or we are intentionally choosing to keep quiet. There are conversations in life that are near impossible to have, but know by holding back your truth you are dulling your fifth chakra.

💎 Stones and crystals to help balance the Throat Chakra:

  • Sodalite - intellect, communication, removes inspiration blocks
  • Lapis Lazuli - speak one’s truth, confidence, self-awareness, self-expression
  • Blue Lace Agate - calmness, peace of mind, emotional healing
  • Moonstone - intuition, spirituality: all things love, power, healing
  • Crystal Quartz - clarity of mind, sense of purpose

 third eye chakra

Ajna - Third Eye Chakra

💜 Our third eye center is our energy center of intuition. Now this isn’t like “ooo, they have THE intuition” this is the intuition that we all innately have. This is the inner compass always pointing you North. The inner voice that says “this is the next right step”. This inner guide will never lead you astray. Always trust your intuition.

💜 When your Third Eye Chakra is balanced you make decisions easily, you trust the decisions you make, and you have a sense of clarity. You trust yourself and your intuition.

⬆ If you have an overactive sixth chakra this can mean that you tend to spend some time up the clouds or in your metaphysical world more often than not. During times of meditation and intuition practices we will increase the activity of this center momentarily, but remember that it’s good to come back to center to maintain balance.

⬇ If you have an underactive sixth chakra this is where it can be hard to make decisions, you have a bit of uncertainty about the next best step OR you may make decisions quickly, but then second guess those decisions. Things seem a little foggy.

💎 Stones and Crystals to balance your Third Eye Chakra:

  • Amethyst - master healer, inner peace, intuition
  • Fluorite - spirituality, focus, concentration
  • Lepidolite - transition, growth and healing
  • Labradorite - intuition, inner spirit, embrace the universe
  • Moonstone - intuition, spirituality: all things love, power, healing
  • Crystal Quartz - clarity of mind, sense of purpose

 Crown Chakra

Sahasrara - Crown Chakra

🤍 Our Crown Chakra is all about our connection to something bigger than ourselves. The Chakras and the energy system of the body doesn’t belong to any one belief system. So, this is a very personal experience. This may be your connection to God, Spirit, Universe, Mother Nature, Humanity, Science. It’s really the connection to something greater that reminds you of how connected we all really are.

🤍 When our Crown Chakra is balanced we feel supported in a spiritual way. We feel like we aren’t alone in the world. We have clarity and feel guided. Our Crown Chakra very much feeds our Third Eye Chakra. I’ve always interpreted this as the two Chakras working closely together.

⬆ If you have an overactive Crown Chakra this is similar to an the overactive Third Eye. You tend to be a little lost in the clouds, or you have dedicated your entire life to the pursuit of connection to something greater. These are both wonderful in moderation, remembering we want balance. We are here to experience Earth and our outer world just as much as we are our inner world.

⬇ If you have an underactive Crown Chakra this is where we have feelings of isolation and separation that come in. This is when we forget how connected we are to the greater whole. You may experience loneliness and confusion - not feeling guided. Remember the Chakra’s are constantly ebbing and flowing and follow your thoughts. Nothing is permanent.

💎 Stones and Crystals to help balance your Crown Chakra:

  • Howlite - calming, inner peace, helps break bad habits
  • Tibetan Agate - heals mind, body, spirit - balancing
  • White Jade - relieves anxiety and fear, stabilizing
  • Snow Quartz - align, balance, clarity
  • Crystal Quartz - clarity of mind, sense of purpose
  • Moonstone - intuition, spirituality: all things love, power, healing
  • Fluorite - spirituality, focus, concentration
  • Amethyst - master healer, inner peace, intuition
