more information about crystals and meditation
When we meditate with crystals, we can reach the depths of our Higher Self, receive guidance from the crystal kingdom, and magnify our personal energy. Not only does meditation allow more peace, clarity and well being into our daily lives; it also raises our energetic vibration, which benefits all of us and the planet.
Sit comfortably in a dimly lit room where you wont be disturbed. Lighting a candle creates a relaxing atmosphere and is helpful when meditating with crystals. With your music turned on, place your crystal loosely in your hand and take several deep breaths--continuing to breathe gently until you are relaxed. When you are relaxed, you can open your eyes and look deeply into your crystal. Simply gaze at your crystal and all of its angles, and imagine yourself inside the crystal and what that might feel like to you. When you have immersed all of your senses with your crystal, continue to breathe gently and close your eyes. Allow the peace and amazement you experienced from your crystal to take you into a deep, relaxed state of being. Continue to breathe gently with your crystal held loosely in your hand, and imagine this crystal is surrounding your entire being, until you feel one with the crystal. You might notice feelings of peace and serenity, or receive a message of some kind from the crystal. Perhaps it guides you to be on a better diet, or you may see certain colors; whatever it is, simply notice and keep it in your memory. You might feel a little tingly from the crystals vibration just continue breathing, being at one with your crystal. You can open your eyes when you are ready (suggested meditation time is 15 minutes to start) and bring your focus back to your crystal. You will most likely feel peaceful, yet energized. Take your hands away from the crystal now, to disconnect from its energy. Be sure to take a moment to thank your crystal for its assistance and place the crystal on the floor or table next to you. Stand up and stretch.
