Meditation is a vital, non-optional part of my daily routine and I firmly believe that everyone should be meditating and setting aside time to do it at least once per day.
The benefits of meditation are huge and can help with so many of the problems we’re faced with on a daily basis. More and more, people are realising just how beneficial meditation can be and companies, organisations and institutions throughout the world are actively encouraging their employees, staff, students, etc. to take part in daily meditations.
Just so you can see, a few of the benefits of meditation are:
- reduced anxiety and stress
- improved immune system
- increased energy levels
- increased clarity and peace of mind
- lower blood pressure
- increased happiness
- slowing down of the ageing process
- improved concentration
- reduced tension related pain
- a decrease in episodes of depression
So …really …what’s not to like about meditation?
Those are just ten reasons that I picked at random but there are many, many more and really, when you look at that list on it’s own, why on earth are so many people still not meditating?
It really isn’t as difficult as it seems either and I will do a post very soon with a few simple instructions on how to get started for those of you who would like to try it but don’t really know where to start. However, today, this post is about using crystals whilst meditating.
Crystals and Meditation
Using crystals during meditation will help to enhance your meditation experience but will also allow you to focus the crystal’s energy on a specific problem you may have whether that problem is spiritual, mental, physical or emotional.
For instance, over the last couple of days I have had a decision hanging over me and I really haven’t known which way to go regarding the outcome. It’s a fairly big decision and not one that I wanted to make without firstly giving it a lot of thought. And so I decided to use a the crystal, fluorite, during my meditations. Fluorite has so, so many attributes but in particular it can enhance concentration and help with making decisions by reducing your emotional involvement in situations thus allowing you to ‘see’ with a clear mind. It also heightens logic and intuition and helps you to see the truth of the matter. Because of this fluorite is known as the ‘Genius Stone’ or the ‘Gemstone of Discernment’. After three meditations my mind isn’t fully made up yet but I am already much clearer about what the outcome is likely to be.
There’s no right or wrong way to meditate with crystals. You can either place the crystal in front of you and concentrate on it, taking in the colour, shape, inclusions, etc. (I prefer to do this with bigger crystals) or you can hold the crystal in your hand (my preferred method) and focus on the feel of it; whether it’s smooth or rough, warm or cool and so on or you can wear it as a piece of jewellery. All you have to do is to state what it is that you’re looking to gain from the meditation and then allow the energies of the crystal to come through. Various thoughts will come and go as you meditate; some will be relevant and some won’t but just let them flit in and out of your mind. You may not get an answer or relief in a single meditation and may have to do it several times but, eventually, you will get whatever it is you’re looking for.
So, go ahead and give a new dimension to your meditation by adding some crystals into it. If you’re not sure which crystals to use for what then leave a question in the comment section below and I’ll do my best to help you out. Alternatively pop over to the Facebook Page and leave your question there.
Are any of you already using crystals in your meditations?
If so, which crystals did you use/are you using and what were your results?
