Meditation is a self-care practice that is beneficial for the body, mind, and spirit. It helps you to relax, clear your mind, reduce anxiety and stress, and release negative energy and thoughts. Crystals can be used to help deepen your meditation, as well as achieve a specific outcome during your meditation. On a spiritual level, meditating with crystals can help to raise your awareness and consciousness, deepening your intuition, and bring insight.
You can use any crystal for meditation. They are tools that will help you start and maintain your meditation practice, help you to set a specific intention, or move you into deeper states of meditation. Using crystals in your daily meditation practice is a good way to experience the beneficial effects of crystals simply by holding them in your hands, wearing them against your skin, or placing them near you.
When you start using crystals in meditation you may find all sorts of interesting things start to happen. You may begin to feel better, healthier, and emotionally stronger. You may start to feel more calm, peaceful, and relaxed.
Any shape and size of crystal can be helpful for meditation. One type of crystal shape you might consider is a crystal harmonizer. Harmonizers are polished into cylindrical shapes to hold during meditation. These tools have been used since ancient Egyptian times to help cure energy blocks and imbalances. To use, hold one cylindrical crystal in the left hand (yin) and one in the right hand (yang) so your spiritual vitality will be invigorated and balance restored.
