Practicing meditation can be extremely beneficial. It is a safe, simple and effective way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental states. Meditating with crystals or Crystal Meditation can bring a whole new dimension to the practice of meditation.
To get started you will need to choose your crystal. Choosing a crystal with fault lines or patterns within it may help you to ‘lose yourself’ within the crystal while meditating. Before beginning a crystal meditation make sure your have cleansed your crystal.
Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Hold your chosen crystal or place it in front of you where you can see it clearly. Take a few deep breaths and then continue to breathe gently. Look at your crystal, notice its colour, pattern, shape and take in its ‘character’.
Meditating with crystals is a great way to relax.
Hold your crystal between both hands, close your eyes and relax. Imagine you are inside your crystal; let yourself move with the flow of the crystal. Let go of worldly thoughts and emotions and move deep into the centre of your crystal. Imagine you are wandering through it exploring its inner beauty and enjoying its energy.
When you are ready, slowly allow yourself to come back to physical reality. Put your crystal aside and ground yourself. (A good way to do this is by imagining roots coming from your feet and going down into the ground). Wiggle your toes, shake your hands and just sit for a moment reflecting on what you saw and how you felt and noting any special messages you may have received.
To complete the process you might like to take in a deep breath and after holding it for a second or two, letting it out with a sigh. You may just want to lie down and place your crystal on its associated chakra.
Meditation to get to know your crystals.
A similar meditation is an excellent way to get to know your crystals. Holding your crystal against your brow or third eye chakra, or your heart chakra, enter into a meditative state. As you do this, hold the intention of allowing it to communicate with you and tell you its story. Sometimes nothing seems to happen and at other times all sorts of information is gleaned. Often you will learn of its journey to get into your hands and the reason it is now with you.
