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.

2. Selenite.

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.

Amethyst Healing Properties - Personal Protection of Amethyst Crystals

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 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.

4. Aventurine.

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.

Simple Meditative Technique To Use With Your 5 Best Crystals For Meditation.

Crystal Treatment - HealthyNatured.com

Firstly, find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed and the environment is one that you feel comfortable, relaxed and at peace.

Sit or lay prone.

Begin to bring yourself to a quiet silence with the healing stones and crystals that you wish to use. Have them close to your body.

Close your eyes and quiet your mind.

Focus your attention on your breathing.

Gently breathe in and out.

Feel your breath filling your lungs, and focus on the sensation as you exhale and empty your lungs. Focus all thought on your breath slowly entering and slowly exiting your lungs.

When you feel relaxed and peaceful pick up the crystals for meditation and hold them comfortably in your hands or place them on your chakra centers if you are laying in a prone position.

Focus again on bringing your thoughts and entire focus into your breathing.

As you slowly inhale, visualize your breath being drawn from the air directly surrounding your crystals. As you breathe in visualize you are taking in the energy of your chosen crystals. Feel it entering your lungs and spreading out filling your entire body.

As you exhale visualize your breath being charged with your energies, your consciousness. See your breath travelling from the lungs, up the throat and then spiraling out of your mouth and into your crystals.

Sense that your crystal, or crystals, are being filled with your energy on each exhalation. And know that with each inhalation the crystal energy and vibration is filling you with their healing properties.

Continue your breathing, slowly inhale and exhale, until you are aware that you are filled with the crystals energy and they are charged with yours.

You will intuitively know when this has happened.

Don’t think about it.

Just know that when you choose to move on it will be the correct moment.

Now gain focus your thought upon your breath.

This time visualize that as you breathe in you are inhaling the highest and purest of white light, white light flooding from the universe and heavens.

As you exhale, know that you are exhaling any blocked energy, any tapped or stored emotion that no longer serves you.

See this white light fill your body, then when your body is full you see it begin to fill your aura, until you are completely encompassed and enveloped with protective and healing universal light.

Visualize this universal white light cleansing your body and auric fields, notice the sensations in your body as this divine light enhances the energies of the crystals within you.

Each exhalation releases stress, tension and energies no longer serving your higher good.

Each inhalation brings you a greater sense of calm and peace.

Once you sense your cleaning is complete shift your focus to your crystals.

As you inhale visualize the divine white light being absorbed directly into the crystal. Almost as if the crystal/s were breathing in this energy.

Sense that as you breathe in the universal light enters the crystals, charging them and activating them fully for you and your higher good.

As you exhale, visualize the crystal releasing its own super charged energy, as waves of color, or vibrations and filling your body.

As you continue to breathe in and out know that you are open to the crystal energy. Allow this energy to fill your mind, permeate your senses and bring peace, harmony and healing to your physical and energetic bodies.

Continue to see the crystals filling with divine light on each inhalation. And see your body filling with the crystalline energy on each exhalation.

When you are sense you are ready you can begin programming any specific intentions for your crystals.

If you have goals or purposes in mind send this intent to your crystals.

Know that you can manifest any desire you wish. Fill your crystals with your intention. Your crystals and gemstones are listening and waiting to assist.

Now simply relax and focus your mind and your body on nothing more than your breathe. Sit, or lay, with your crystals for as long as you wish.

When you feel that the time has been sufficient and your meditation is finished (trust your intuition to guide you on this – you should feel completely relaxed and at peace) you should complete an earthly grounding process.

Focus again on your breath.

As you breath in see your breath absorbing more energy from your crystal or crystals.

As you exhale sense the energy spiralling downwards, flowing down your body, into the legs and then exiting the soles of your feet. See this energy going deep, deep down into the earth below.

Take a few long deep breaths in and out.

Visualize your breath taking energy from the crystal or crystals. And as you breathe out see the energy spiralling down. It flows down your legs and exits your feet. See these energies flowing from your feet into the earth. Connecting you to the earth like the strong solid roots of a tree.

Feel yourself connect with Mother Earth. Thank her for the crystals you hold, the stones that are part of her, which came from her, given freely to assist you.

When you sense it is time shift your focus back to the room.
Bring yourself back to consciousness.

Take another few deep breaths and open your eyes.

I hope that enjoyed this article about the best crystals and gemstones for meditation.

      I’m so sorry to respond so late!!!
      I soak them in a clear container filled with water and dissolve rock salt into it…about 100g rock slat in 500ml of water
      soak for 6 hours approx. Then I rinse under cold running water, place overnight in a spot which catches moonlight and then charge with intent – basically positive affirmations for what I would like them to manifest or how I would like them to function (for healing)

      Hope this helps and I hope you are well
      Love

  • I am just starting to get into or expand my meditation practice. I found this article to be extremely comprehensive and one that I will reference again in the future. I particularly like how you understand there is no one perfect way, that each of us are different and resonate at our own unique frequency. Thank you very much for your efforts here.

    • Hi James,
      Thank you for your comments. Im pleased the post resonated with you. The importance with meditation is to enjoy. Often people get stressed trying to fit into a particular method or trying to remember exact sequences or steps and then the meditation becomes a stressful situation rather than one of peaceful contemplation. If a practice is stressful then it will manifest into an ongoing thought (when I meditate I get stressed) and so people will never find what they wish to achieve. By just allowing yourself to relax and structure the meditation as it happens then people can remove the anxiety and enjoy the benefits. Thanks again for your comments.
      Love and Light
      Jason
