I believe that adding meditation to our daily routine is of extreme importance.
Clinical research shows that people who included meditation as part of their routine on regular basis, when compared to others who did not participate in meditation, had much improved response to change and stress. They also had better overall health, especially blood pressure and heart rate.
Meditation relaxes, revitalizes and reconditions our body to be able to function at peak health.
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 we add crystals to our meditation practice, it is our relaxed state that allows us to attune much easier to their energetic vibration. This enables us to gain the benefits of specific crystals, both healing and spiritual properties.
Simply placing a crystal within our energetic field, or aura, as we meditate allows the vibrational properties of the crystal to re-energize and re-harmonize our bodies auric field.
In fact when we use crystals we actually get double benefits. Not only does the relaxed state of meditation enable us to attune to the crystal vibrations far easier, we also accentuate and improve our meditation because of the crystals energy and healing properties.
While we meditate we enter a receptive state, meaning our energy is more open to the crystalline vibrations.
Using healing crystals is a truly powerful technique which assists deepen our meditation, focus our intent and guide us to achieve a specific outcome, or several specific outcomes, during our meditation.
If we are focused on meditation as a tool to aid spiritual development we can boost this by charging our crystals with intent.
When we use meditation and crystals to set intention, we also raise our consciousness and develop our spiritual awareness. We will look at charging crystals with intent later in this post.
Using crystals within meditation will also help open and sharpen our intuition and bring greater insight.
What Are The 5 Best Crystals For Meditation?
The reality is that when it comes to selecting crystals to use in our meditation practice there can be no definitive list.
In fact any of the natural healing crystals can be used.
However I believe these 5 crystals should be our first choice and included in every healing or meditation kit.
These crystals have been chosen because they offer us a multitude of health benefits, they aid healing, as well as having energetic properties that optimise wellbeing and promote spiritual development.
So while every possible crystal that could be selected is wonderful, I believe these 5 should be our first choice!
1. Quartz Crystal – Meditation And Crystals.
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 our meditative intent.
Quartz Crystals bring real clarity of mind, help us become more focused and clarify our goals and ambitions.
The best news is that Clear Quartz is able to attune to any vibration making it a master healer. It can therefore be used for every Chakra. Plus it is able to amplify the energy of all other 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 our mind and relax our body.
Selenites healing properties supports our physical and spiritual bodies to release negative energy and any trapped or stored emotional blocks.
Selenite helps to to energetically cleanse our body.
It is also a stone of protection, keeping our energy safe and shielded, allowing us to safely meditate without fear of over stimulating our energetic body or chakras.
Selenite is also known as the angel stone as it enhances communication with spirit. It is also referred to as the harmony crystal because it promotes the flow of calm and harmonious energies throughout our body.
3. Amethyst – Meditation and Crystals.
Known as an “All Purpose Stone.” Amethyst can be found in various shades and hues of light violet, lilac or vibrant purple.
Therefore Amethyst is a crystal which can open spiritual channels and help us link 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 we are on our travels. It is a powerful crystal energy which is ideal for meditation.
Aventurine, most commonly known for its green coloration, actually comes in a variety of colors such as red, yellow, peach, blue and many others.
It is a wonderful crystal that attracts vibrations associated with true love, lifelong friendships and lasting relationships.
The Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Luck,” and brings forth energies associated with 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 blood pressure.
5. Black Tourmaline.
Black Tourmaline is one of the most protective of all crystals.
This crystal shields and protects us and those we love from any form of negative energy.
Simply by placing Black Tourmaline in our house, or workplace, it will protect us from any negative vibrations associated with others.
In fact Black Tourmaline shields and protects us from any potentially harmful intentional energy directed toward us.
We can also add this crystal to areas near our 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 we ever have difficulty manifesting wishes, we can use Black Tourmaline to focus our intention or thoughts during meditation. The Black Tourmaline helps remove energetic connections linked with negativity or blockages that may be preventing us reaching our goals.
Deciding Which Crystals You Need – Let Them Choose You!
It’s always beneficial to select healing and meditative crystals that offer properties or vibrational energies that align with what we wish to achieve from our 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 Meditation 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 healing 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.
