Chakras Blue Lace Agate Connects Best With:

Blue Agate is a crystal that radiates with slow, steady, calming frequencies – perfect for connecting, balancing, and stimulating the Throat and Third Eye Chakras.

The throat chakra connects with how we express ourselves to the world, how we are perceived through our expression, and whether we see our own truth. The Throat Chakra is the expression of all other chakras, and when it’s imbalanced, it can affect the balance of all the other chakras. When your throat chakra is opened and balanced, you will be able to express yourself freely, and open to see the truth, and the world as well as yourself as you are. Furthermore, the flow of energy from your spirit to your body will be even stronger. That’s why working with a crystal such as Blue Agate on restoring balance to your Throat Chakra is an amazing way to balance it and stimulate the energy flow.

The Third Eye connects us with our intuition as well as our connection with the universe as a whole. When your third eye is open and balanced, synchronicity will be in abundance. You will move in flow with the universe and your ability to manifest will be heightened. The sixth chakra guides our ability to think, visualize, and intuit. If the third eye chakra becomes imbalanced, it becomes hard to take in new ideas or trust our intuition and intellect. It also becomes difficult to visualize changes for ourselves or even to visualize what we want to create. Blue Agate is an amazing crystal to help you reconnect with yourself and the Universe.
