Want to learn more about how to use crystals to enhance your meditation practice? We'll teach you everything we know about crystal meditation using the healing energy of crystals as the ultimate high vibrational healing tool.
Meditation is a means of relaxation, stress relief, and spiritual growth for many of us. Meditating is a practice that involves sitting quietly, focusing your attention, and connecting with the rhythm of your breath.There are many different techniques that have been developed to enhance the meditation experience, and one of these techniques is crystal meditation.
Crystal meditation involves the use of high vibrational crystals to enhance your meditation practice. The use of crystals for their healing properties has been well documented throughout history. Each crystal has its own unique vibration (or energy frequency) and certain energies can help to bring balance and alignment to your chakras. By using crystals in your meditation practice, you can deepen your own innate connection to your inner power. It is when you find connection from within that you are able to achieve a greater sense of mindfulness and inner peace.
Choosing Your Crystals
The first step in beginning a crystal meditation session is to choose the right crystal. There are crystals for every intention, situation, manifestation, and aspect of life. With so many different types of crystals, each with its own unique properties and energies, there is a crystal for everything.
Some crystals are calming, while others are energizing. Some crystals are associated with specific chakras, while others have a more general balancing effect. Which crystal you choose will completely up to you, and will depend on the intention of your meditation.
Before beginning your crystal meditation practice, take some time to choose a crystal that resonates with you. You can choose a crystal based on its color, shape, or properties, or you can simply hold different crystals in your hand and see which one feels right for you.
Extend your energy out towards the crystal, and see if you can feel the pull of the crystals energy as it meets yours. You'll know when it feels right.

Preparing for Your Meditation
Once you have your crystal chosen, it's time to prepare for your meditation. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. You may want to light some candles or get some incense going, do whatever you need to to create a cozy, peaceful sacred space. Find a space where you can sit comfortably with your back straight and your feet flat on the floor.
Hold your crystal softly in your hand and take a few deep breaths to center yourself. Set your intention for this journey. Find grounding in this space. Allow yourself to feel held and safe in this moment. Close your eyes and focus your attention on your breath. Breathe in deeply through your nose, filling your lungs with air, and then slowly begin to exhale through your mouth. Repeat this motion several times, allowing your breath to become slow and deep.
Using Your Crystal in Meditation
As you continue to breathe deeply, bring your attention back to your crystal. Hold it in your hand or place it on a specific part of your body, depending on the properties of the crystal and the area of your body that you want to focus on.
What intentions did you set for this moment? What energy are you asking for from this sacred stone?
As you hold your crystal, focus on its energy and allow it to connect you to your most inner self, your true self. Visualize the energy of the crystal flowing into your body, and over your body, filling you with a sense of peace, calm, and utmost serenity.
Breathe in to find stillness here. Breathe out when you're ready.
Continue to focus on your breath and building the connection to your crystal and its sacred energy in this beautiful moment in time. If your mind begins to wander, gently bring your attention back to your breath and your healing stone. Stay present here.
Breathe in deeper than you ever have before. Have you ever felt this connected with your own energy? Breathe out when you're ready.
Take a few minutes to find mindfulness here. Let all other thoughts just simply melt away.
When you feel you are ready to end your meditation, take a few deep breaths and slowly start to open your eyes. Take a moment here to reflect on your experience and the insights that you have gained during your meditation.
Did you learn something new about yourself? Were you able to connect with the energy of your crystal? Have you found the energy you were searching for?
