Meditation with Crystals - The Basics
Let me start off by saying there are various methods of meditation with crystals. This is just a simple quick guide to help lead beginners in the right direction.
The main idea behind meditation is to connect with your inner being which then brings clarity and order in your life. This is because you know yourself, have connected with yourself and therefore will live your life with this in mind. Crystals are used to assist the meditation process along. Many may wonder how this works, but firm believers in this mode of meditation swear by it.
Crystals are known to channel someone’s inner chakra, kind of like a key. If new to meditation, I would recommend meditating with a quartz crystal. The crystal usually has 6 points and comes in a standard clear color. Sometimes, you may need more than one crystal for the process. It is said that everyone has that crystal that matches their energy. It is not unusual to bump into one that does not match you. You can grab the crystal and feel its energy for a moment to decide if it's the right one for you.
To begin, hold the crystal in your hand or place it in front of you. You will then speak to the crystal what it is you desire to mediate about. You can choose to speak from the heart or write down your meditation intentions. In order to begin the meditation process, you must sit in an upright position that is comfortable for you.
Once you are comfortably seated, take a few deep breaths and begin to relax. Close your eyes and imagine your entire body relaxing, starting from your toes to your head. Remember to take deep breaths and move your focus to the crystal and your breathing. It is said that the stone vibrates with energy fueled by your meditation desires. Let these vibrations travel through your body through both your lower and higher chakras and take effect.
Making use of crystals during meditation allows you to have a foot in both the physical and non-physical world. When you are fully relaxed and taken into your own world, the guardians on the other side are at hand to help you fulfill the purpose of your meditation.
For those who are trying out meditation for the first time, you will notice a challenge trying to relax, free your mind and let the energy from the crystals flow. This is not uncommon because the human mind is wired to be constantly active. You should keep trying until you get to that place where you will let go and let the meditation work for you. When done right, your mind and soul will open up and let your desires materialize in your life. Meditation through crystals can help to channel physical healing, emotional healing, chakra healing and many other benefits.
