Practising meditation can be extremely beneficial. It is a safe and simple way to balance a person's physical, emotional, and mental states. Meditating with crystals can bring a new dimension to the practice of meditation.
Before beginning a crystal meditation make sure your have cleansed your crystal.
To begin choose your crystal. Choosing a crystal with fault lines or patterns within it may help you to 'lose yourself' within the crystal while meditating.
Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Hold your chosen crystal or place it in front of you where you can see it clearly. Breath gently. Make each breath out a little longer than the breath in. Look at your crystal, notice it's colour, pattern, shape.
Hold your crystal in both hands, close your eyes and relax. Imagine you are inside your crystal; let yourself move with the flow of the crystal. Let go of worldly thoughts and emotions and move deep into the centre of your crystal, imagine you are wandering through it exploring its inner beauty.
When you are ready, slowly allow yourself to come back to physical reality. Put your crystal aside and ground yourself by imagining roots coming from your feet and going down into the ground. Twiddle your toes, shake your hands and just sit for a moment reflecting on what you saw and how you felt. You may just want to lie and put your crystal on it's associated chakra.
