Here is a very simple Chakra aligning technique using Clear Quartz:

This can be done standing, sitting, or lying down. Any clear Quartz point may be employed for this, but I find one about the size of my big finger ideal. First, cleanse and clear your crystal.
Now point your crystal point at an area just below your feet. Then slowly draw it up along the centre line of your body ending just past the top of your head. Often, this is enough to restore balance and harmony. Now tune into your intuition to determine if you need to expand your efforts. If so, reverse direction and follow back down to your feet. The beauty of this is that you can’t overdo it, so just keep repeating until you sense you are back in good order. Under most normal circumstances though, you should find up and down three times to be enough.
Some people prefer to loop or snake between their chakras and this is quite acceptable also.
