Meditation with Crystals

When shopping for meditation stones, go by the color until you become more familiar with each one. Blue crystals, such as Aquamarineand Lapis Lazuli, can help to clear your mind and give you a peaceful feeling inside. Simply hold the blue crystals in your hands or lay them on your body so that your skin touches the crystal directly during meditation. Purple stones, such as Amethyst and Charoite, will improve your meditation sessions by connecting you to your Higher self, thus aiding and expanding your visualization capabilities.
Selecting Meditation Crystals
When selecting your crystals for your meditation session, place them all in front of you and close your eyes for a minute. When you open your eyes again, allow your eyes to focus on a crystal. Don't force yourself to choose one particular crystal. Allowing your eyes to focus on one instead will be more beneficial to your meditation. There are no crystals to avoid when meditation. All crystals can be used and each one offers different properties to enhance your meditation experience.
