Meditation with Crystals for Beginners
If you are interested in meditation, it is important to understand the basics of the practice in order to get the full effectiveness of this exercise. Being here and reading this article is taking the first step on your personal journey!
Why is Meditation so Beneficial?
The purpose of meditation is to make the brain more aware of feelings and thoughts. Being more aware of your thoughts and feelings will help you find your place in this world. Rather than stumbling blindly through a mundane routine, your head will be clear on a goal and focus.
Today, the world is busy, we are busy running errands, working, raising families, tending to the home, overworking and over-stressing our schedules and budgets in order to please everyone else as we frantically search for that one thing that will be the ultimate ah – ha!
Unfortunately, many will never find that moment and will die searching. But thanks to the mindful awareness and the benefits of meditation, your search can come to the end. The answer was within you all along!
Everyone can benefit from meditation. It's not a drug, it doesn't require you to travel anywhere, there is no set time limit, you can do it for any reason, and it can bring you a kind of joy, peace, and calmness that you cannot find anywhere else. Meditation is for everyone, but not everyone has enjoyed it yet.
Beginners Meditation Tip
When you first begin meditating, you may find it difficult to concentrate on sitting still. This could make your first experience with meditation a negative one.
Using crystals can help you focus, open up your inner mind, and help rid you of negative energy that may be standing in your way. Like in crystal healing, having a physical object to hold helps the mind zone in on its goal.
Hold on to a healing stone that you have programmed for your meditation's intent. If you tend to drop things, wear the crystal as jewelry instead.
Selecting Meditation Crystals
If you don't have a particular intention in mind, you can play a random game when selecting which crystal to meditate with. Place all of the meditation crystal candidates in front of you and close your eyes for a minute. When you open your eyes again, allow your eyes to focus on just one crystal. Don't force yourself to choose one particular crystal. Allowing your eyes to slowly focus on one instead will be more beneficial to your meditation.
There are no crystals to avoid when meditating. All crystals can be used and each one offers different healing properties to enhance your experience. If you have an intention in mind for your meditation, we have an in-depth guide on which crystals can be right for you.
