Benefits of Using Crystals During Meditation
The benefits of meditation are strongly enhanced by the use of crystals. This is because crystals give off certain frequencies that help us achieve the states we desire with more ease.
If this sounds far-fetched, it’s not. In fact, it’s pretty mainstream. For example, quartz crystal has been used for many years in watches, computer chips, and LCD (liquid crystal display) screens because they emit a consistent frequency that is able to store information.
Here are three ways that crystals serve us during meditation.
Crystals Give Us a Deeper Experience
Healing stones and crystals can help us to get more out of our meditation practice by allowing us to go deeper.
It’s difficult to have a beneficial meditation experience when our minds are constantly going and when we are restless. Crystals can help us settle our minds and body so that we can get lost in the experience.
They Can Help Us Achieve a Certain Outcome
Whether you want to bring more love into your life, increase your confidence, reduce your anxiety, tap into your intuition, or any other outcome you want to achieve, crystals are here to help you accomplish it.
With the right crystal, you can bring your being into alignment with the right frequencies to help you get what you want out of your meditation practice.
They Raise Our Consciousness & Help Us Make Spiritual Connections
Many crystals have the ability to raise our frequency so that we can connect with our higher consciousness and our angels and guides. By meditating with these crystals, we can more easily tap into our spiritual potential.
How to Enhance Your Meditation Practice with Crystals
Now that you know how crystals can help us meditate, let’s look at how to go about using them during our meditation practices.
Set an Intention Before You Meditate
When we work with crystals during meditation, it is best to have a purpose in mind for their use. This can help us get more out of our meditation time in general, but it will also help guide us in choosing crystals and the ways we will use them as well.
Choose the Right Crystal for Your Meditation Practice
Different crystals can help us in different ways, so after you set your intention, you can then choose a crystal that will help you achieve that intention. Here are some of the most common crystals and what they can assist you with:
Clear Quartz – Higher Consciousness, Concentration, Memory, Amplifies Other Stones
Rose Quartz – Unconditional Love, Compassion, Self-Acceptance, Reduces Fear
Black Tourmaline – Protection, Empowerment, Transforms Negative Into Positive
Amethyst – Intuition, Reducing Stress, Calming, Transmutes Negative Energy Into Love
Carnelian – Motivation, Courage, Confidence, Positivity
Serpentine – Kundalini Energy, Emotional Wounds, Detoxifying, Psychic Abilities
Lapis Lazuli – Harmony, Enlightenment, Intuition, Mental Expansion, Clarity
The easiest way to choose a crystal is to learn about the chakras (the energy centers in the body) and the effects those chakras have on the body, mind, and spirit.
Once you understand that, you can easily choose a crystal that matches the color of the chakra you want to balance.
For example, a yellow stone like Citrine matches the frequency of the solar plexus chakra; therefore, meditating with it can help you boost your confidence or improve your digestion, since both are associated with the solar plexus.
Choose How You Want to Use Your Crystals During Meditation
There are many ways to use crystals during meditation, but here are some of our favorites:
Set Up a Crystal Grid
Crystal grids incorporate sacred geometry to enhance the effects of the crystals. By setting up crystals in certain shapes, you can achieve powerful meditation results. As you meditate, sit next to or in the center of the crystal grid.
Hold a Crystal in Your Hand
A much simpler way to use crystals during meditation is to simply hold a small tumbled stone in your hand while you meditate. You might feel the energy resonating from the crystal, and you might not. Either way, you can benefit from its frequency.
Sit Next to an Amethyst Geode
Perhaps the most powerful meditation experience one can have happens next to a large Amethyst Geode. Not only are these specimens absolutely stunning, but they give off a strong energetic frequency that is sure to enhance your meditation practice.
