How To Meditate With Crystals

Meditation is a practice that can be beneficial for the body, mind, and spirit. It helps to clear your mind, relax, reduce anxiety, release negative energy and unwanted thoughts. Using crystals in meditation is a way to help deepen your practice, and achieve a specific outcome. On a spiritual level, using crystals can help to raise your awareness and consciousness, bringing insight and deepening your intuition.

It is beneficial to choose a crystal that contains energies or healing properties that are in line with what you want to achieve out of your practice. Setting intentions and meditating with your crystal daily enhances and magnifies your results. When your mind is focused on your intention from the stillness of your meditation practice and the energy of the crystal, you will have better motivation and inspiration for achieving your goals or receiving certain energy.

After you have chosen your crystal, you are ready to begin. There is no right or wrong way to meditate, just as there is no right or wrong crystal to use. The best way to utilize your crystals is to hold them in your hands while you are meditating or lay the crystals on your body, ideally so that they touch the skin.

The Crystal Meditation

1. Find a quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.

2. Sit quietly with the crystals close by.

3. Close your eyes and quiet your mind, focusing your attention on your breathing.

4. Pick up the crystals and hold them comfortably in your hands.

5. Imagine your energy and awareness going into the stones, feeling the energy of your crystals.

6. Imagine white light and breathe that in, letting the energy of the crystals fill your mind and permeate your senses.

7. Visualize your intention.

8. Relax your mind and body. Sit with the crystals as long as you can.

9. Open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

It is best to be free of distractions and interruptions. Find a quiet space in your house, turn off your phone and anything else that might distract you. Play some soft music, place the crystals around you and light a candle if you want.

Set a timer. Start with 5-minute sessions and make your way up to 20 minutes a day if you can. Concentrate on your breathing, breathing in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth. Exhale out anything you no longer want to hold onto, feelings such as anger, anxiety, fear, and stress. Imagine that you are breathing in light. Visualize a white ray of light above your head, showering you with its light beams. Continue to breathe out any unwanted energy and breathe in light.

It is important to repeat daily, no matter how little time you have to spare. It will feel different on some days compared to others depending on the crystal that you choose to work with. One day you might feel energized, while another day you will feel happy, calm, and peaceful. All feelings are acceptable, you'll want to go with them and not try and block the unpleasant ones, as they will eventually pass.
