Let’s face it, crystals are very popular right now so there’s probably lots of online articles out there on how to meditate with crystals. This one is no different.
And I’ll be very honest with you – I’m writing this so that my crystal shop website can reap the SEO benefits. In the marketing and SEO world, they say that writing relevant blog content will increase your search engine results. So this is my attempt.
And who knows? This article might benefit someone out there on the World Wide Web so I might as well write something. Writing this out will definitely help me out too, as I like to practice my writing.😊
So here we go!
First of all, why even include crystals in your meditation? Why can’t you just, I don’t know…meditate?
It’s true, you can most certainly meditate without the help of crystals. You don’t need crystals to start your meditation practice.
But I’ve also learned that quieting your mind, just breathing and being present can actually be challenging at first, at least it was for me. Us humans need some assistance from the mineral kingdom – who’ve spent thousands of years growing in silence in the womb of Mother Earth.💎
Through a guided meditation, crystals and stones can really take your meditations to the next level!
A guided meditation is just that – meditating with a guide. All you do is sit back, relax and go into your inner world while someone is guiding you.
One of my favorite meditation teachers is Jessica Snow. She opened me up to my own world, and helped me to rediscover my true self. You can check out her website here.
If you are lacking in funds for a guided meditation, I’m sure there’s an abundance of them on YouTube. But if you’ve arrived here and you’re actually reading this, then start here.😊
So here’s a simple way to meditate with a crystal:
💎 Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for at least 5-10 minutes. Feel free to set an alarm on your phone. You can also use the Insight Timer app if you feel that you need some light sound to help you meditate.
💎 Grab the crystal or stone that you want to meditate with.
💎 Holding your crystal in your non-writing hand, sit on a chair with both feet planted on the floor or sit on the floor with your back straight and your legs crossed – whatever’s comfortable for you.
💎 Close your eyes, breathe in and out for a few minutes, paying attention only to your breathing.
💎 While breathing, be aware of the crystal you hold in your hand. Observe with your eyes closed how the crystal feels in your hand and ask it for whatever you need help with.
💎 Continue breathing and holding the crystal. Take note of any intuitive messages you are receiving if any, write it down so you can refer to it later.
💎 You’re pretty much done once your alarm goes off, but if you’d like to keep going feel free to hit the ‘snooze’ on your phone.
That’s it! Congratulations, you just meditated with a crystal!😃 How did it feel? Good, I hope!😊
If you really want to step up your crystal meditation, here are 2 bonus steps that will really help take you to that sacred, otherworldly, metaphysical dimension:
✨ Once you’ve found your quiet space, cleanse that area first with smoke using Sage, Palo Santo or other herbs really. If you have neither, then work with incense. If you have none of these, then project a thought affirming that the space is energetically clean.
Smoke cleansing your space clears out any unwanted energies with sacred smoke, but your intention will work just as good.
✨ Before starting your meditation, ground by breathing in and out while imagining yourself connecting to the core of the earth. Most people imagine roots coming down from their body or a rope with a really heavy anchor or even a beam of light that has sparkles around it. Have fun and use your imagination. Doing this will keep you anchored on the earth plane, so you don’t float away.
If for some reason you weren’t able to quiet your mind when doing the meditation, that’s okay. Keep at it and try again.
The more you meditate, the easier it gets. Anything that you want to get good at takes practice. The fact that you even want to meditate shows your intention and the crystal will certainly help you achieve positive results as they are intelligent like that.
