The Magic of Meditating With Crystals

Meditation is a powerful tool known to reduce stress, enhance relaxation, and help us evolve spiritually. When crystals are added to the mix, we can take our practice to new heights as gems have long been associated with healing, restoring and expanding.

Spiritual Benefits of Meditation

Meditation quiets our minds and helps us focus on our inner selves.

This enables more awareness when it comes to our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and self limiting beliefs. In this space, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.

This knowing can lead to a greater sense of peace, contentment, and fulfillment.

Physical Benefits of Meditation

In addition to the spiritual benefits, meditation has been linked to numerous physical and mental perks. Reduced stress and anxiety, improved focus and concentration, and increased feelings of happiness and well-being are a few.

Regular meditation can also boost our immune system, reduce pain and inflammation in the body, and promote better sleep.

Choosing the Right Crystals for Meditation

Selecting crystals that align with our desires is the first step. Crystals are unique, possessing a myriad of healing energies. Amethyst brings that calming energy you need after a long day, rose quartz is associated with feelings of  love and compassion, green aventurine is an abundance magnet, while fluorite keeps us focused as we step into our genius energy and manifest.

Toss in clear quartz – the enhancer, selenite for cleansing, and citrine because sunlight is the best companion.  

Prepare Your Crystals for Meditation

Cleanse your crystals. Smudge them with sage or palo santo, place them in salt water, or under running water.

Then, charge ’em. Sunlight and moonlight are the best for crystal charging. Place them outside throughout the day or under moonlight overnight.

Find a quiet, peaceful space where you won’t be disturbed. Light candles and burn essential oils to help you relax. Remove distractions from the space and set the mood with calming music. Place a mat or cushion down and get comfy.

With your crystal in hand, focus on your intentions. What goal do you want to achieve, what emotion do you want to feel? Identify it. Be clear, and feel it as though it’s come to pass.

Relax and breathe slowly. Enjoy the process of just being, knowing that you’re manifesting with every breath.

Stay Focused and Present. During your meditation, keep your mind focused on your breath or visualization. If you get distracted, gently bring yourself back to your intention.

Journal. Keeping a journal will help you track your progress and improve over time. Use it to write down your intentions, experiences, and any insights you receive during and after your practice.

Experiment With Different Crystals. Try using different crystals during meditation to see which works best. You can also try different techniques, such as placing the stones on your body or using a crystal grid.

Complement Your Practice. Incorporating other self-care practices such as yoga, aromatherapy and body massages can enhance your crystal meditation practice.

Be Consistent. Consistency is important when it comes to any practice, meditation included. Reserve time and space for crystal meditation and make it a part of your daily routine.
