How to Use Crystals to Meditate
Whether you are new to meditation, or already have an established meditation practice, crystals can help to deepen your connection with yourself and the universe. Crystal meditation can be as simple as holding a crystal in the hand, or creating geometric layout of crystals around the person to magnify the energy.
Use a crystal that has been cleansed and programmed specifically for meditation. Again, each crystal should only hold one intention at a time for it to produce the best results. Quartz crystals are extremely versatile but any crystal can be used depending on what you are looking to achieve. If the meditation is to evoke self-love, a rose quartz would be the perfect choice. If it is to open the third eye chakra and enhance psychic abilities, an amethyst is ideal. Selenite is often used to connect to the angelic realm. If grounding is needed, a black tourmaline or smoky quartz works beautifully. Clear quartz works well for all conditions and purposes and can be programmed for anything.
If you choose to hold the crystal in your hand, make sure it does not have rough edges that may hurt the hand. Tumbled stones or palm stones work well for meditation.
If you want to experiment with creating a geometric layout, some powerful geometric shapes such as triangle, square, six-pointed Star of David, and circle can be used. Each arrangement enhances a different purpose as the crystals placed in a grid resonate with each other so synergy is achieved. You can even incorporate candles, essential oils, visualization, chanting and music into the session to make it a soothing experience.
