One widely recommended healing crystal to assist in the clearing of these blockages is Red Jasper. This is a wonderful "Grounding" stone which will make you feel more in control of your life, while also giving you balancing energy to help you see things with more optimism and clarity.

Also, as this chakra is connected with the element Earth, "Earthing" outside is also a great way to reconnect and find balance.
