After you have chosen your crystal, you are ready for your meditation.
There is no right or wrong way to meditate—just as there is no right or wrong crystal to use—everyone’s meditations are unique.
The best way to utilize your crystals during your meditation is to
1) hold them in your hands while meditating or
2) lay them on your body, ideally so that they touch your skin.
If you are new to meditating with crystals, here is a simple daily meditation with crystals to use to help you get started:
First and foremost, cleanse the crystal you plan to use. Crystals can pick up other people's energy so you want to be sure you are working with clean energy.
It's best to set an intention ahead of time so you can charge the crystal with that energy. For example, you can charge a hematite stone with grounding and protective energy. It already vibrates at that frequency but by charging it, you are creating a bond with the stone for your own personal use.
Find a quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Sit quietly with the crystal that you wish to use.
Pick up the crystal and hold it comfortably in your hands.
Close your eyes and quiet your mind, focusing your attention on your breathing.
Start to focus your awareness on the crystal, feeling the energy and subtle vibration of your crystal.
- Let the crystal’s energy fill your mind and body. Picture it vibrating and clearing out all negativity in your energy field.
- Visualize your intention and picture your crystal being programmed with the "job" you are giving it.
RELAX your mind and your body. Sit with your crystals as long as you need.
When you are finished, and feel completely relaxed and at peace, ground yourself by seeing all aspects of your awareness spiraling back out of the crystal and into your body. Feel yourself connect with the Earth and your body.
Open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
