5 Best Crystals For Meditation
Why Use Crystals In Your Meditation?
Scientifically meditation has been proven to aid relaxation, clear the mind and assist in the release of negative energies and unwanted thoughts.
When you add crystals to your meditation practice, your relaxed state allows you to attune easily to the specific crystal, it’s healing and spiritual properties.
Simply placing a crystal within your energy field, as you meditate, allows the vibrational properties of the crystal to re-energize and re-harmonize your bodies energy field.
This means that you are able to accentuate your meditations with a particular healing or energetic focus. While you meditate you enter a receptive state and your energy is more open to the crystalline vibrations.
Using healing crystals is a truly powerful technique which assists deepen your meditation, focus your intent and guide you to achieve a specific outcome, or several specific outcomes, during your meditation.
If your meditations are focused upon spiritual development you can charge your crystals with intent. This will help set intention, raise your consciousness and spiritual awareness. We will look at charging crystals with intent later in this post.
Using crystals within your meditation will also aide in deepening your intuition and bringing clear insight.
What Are The 5 Best Crystals For Meditation?
The reality is that when it comes to selecting crystals to use in your meditation practice there is NO set of correct answers.
In fact any natural healing crystals can be used.
However I believe there are some crystals that should be the first choices and included in every healing or meditation kit.
These crystals offer multitudes of benefits, aid healing and promote spiritual development. So while all crystals are wonderful these 5 should be your first choice!
It probably comes as no surprise that the Quartz Crystal is at the very top of the list. In fact, if this post was about the 1 best gemstone for meditation,the Quartz Crystal would be it.
Quartz is one of the best crystals for meditation because it can be programmed and charged with your meditative intent.
Quartz Crystals brings real clarity of mind, helps you become more focused and clarify your goals and ambitions.
They best news is that Clear Quartz is able to attune any vibration making it a master healer (it can be used for every Chakra) plus it is able to amplify the energy of all crystals. This makes it perfect to use in meditation.
Perfect for spiritual development and mindfulness meditation. Selenite acts as a natural aid to meditation as it helps clear your mind and relax your body.
Selenite healing properties support your physical and spiritual bodies to release negative energy and trapped or stored emotional blocks. Selenite helps to to energetically cleanse your body.
It is also a stone of protection, keeping your energy safe and shielded, allowing you to safely meditate without fear of over stimulating your energetic body or chakras.
Selenite is also known as the angel stone as it enhances communication with spirit as well as being a harmony crystal which promotes the flow of calm and harmonious energies throughout your body.
Known as an “All Purpose Stone.” Amethyst can be found in various shades and hues of light violet, lilac or vibrant purple.
Due to coloration Amethyst resonates with both higher spiritual Chakras – the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) and the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna).
Therefore Amethyst is a crystal which can open the channel and links to divine consciousness and higher intuition.
Amethyst clears confusion of the mind and helps relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia and mood swings.
It is commonly referred to as the “Traveler’s Stone,” and provides protection while you are on your travels. It is a powerful energy which is ideal for meditation.
Aventurine, most commonly known as green, actually comes in a variety of colors such as red, yellow, peach, blue and others.
A wonderful crystal that attracts true love, lifelong friendships and lasting relationships.
The Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Luck,” and brings forth great fortune and desired opportunities.
Aventurine increases confidence, self-esteem and optimizes personal growth. It is also a stone which can be used for heart-related ailments and emotional issues.
It is one of the crystals which represents the Heart Chakra (Anahata).
Use Aventurine crystals to help with any allergies and sleep disorders, as well as assisting with immunity and to regulate your blood pressure.
Black Tourmaline is one of the the top protective crystals. This crystal shields and protects you from negative energy.
Simply by placing Black Tourmaline in your house, or workplace, it will protect you from negative vibrations of others.
In fact Black Tourmaline shields and protects you from any potentially harmful intentions directed toward you.
You can also add the crystal to areas near your electronic devices and gadgets to protect from EMF frequencies.
One of the best ways to utilize Black Tourmaline is to wear it. It will absorb negativity and turn it into positivity.
If you have difficulty manifesting wishes, use Black Tourmaline to focus thought during meditation. This helps remove links with any potential negative block preventing you reaching your goal.
Deciding Which Crystals You Need – Let Them Choose You!
It’s always beneficial to select healing and meditative crystals that offer healing properties or vibrational energies that align with what you want to achieve from meditation.
Take time to clarify your current needs, wishes and desires. Then choose crystals with these properties. When you meditate with the crystals they will enhance and magnify the results you seek.
Let The Crystals Tell Their Story
If you feel drawn to a crystal but you are not sure why, or if you have a crystal and are unsure of its purpose, then meditate with it.
As you meditate let the crystal guide you.
How does your body resonates with the crystal energy?
What do you see and hear?
How does the crystal make you feel?
Let the crystals energy flow throughout your body and guide you in understanding the purpose of the crystal you have chosen.
If you have a number of crystals and you are unsure which one you should choose for a particular meditation simply lay them out in front of you.
Silently gaze at the crystals in front of you. Ensure you focus on the intended purpose of the meditation, or what you would like to achieve or work on in the meditative state.
Once focused with intent the correct crystal, or crystals,will make themselves known. They will “sing to you” or stand out from the crowd.
In every case the crystal you choose will be the correct one for the job and has helped you consciously or subconsciously to select it for helping you to achieve your specific purpose and/or goal.
