There are hundreds of cultures around the globe over the past thousand years that have used crystals for healing and meditation purposes. Its mystical allure has not faded over time, and during times of ambivalence, people turn to alternative therapy such as meditation through the use of healing crystals.
If you are just getting acquainted with the use of these crystals, then worry no more as we give you several things you need to learn before you start your crystal healing journey.
Choosing the right crystal
There are sure to be many people who find brilliant-tinged gemstones fascinating. But it may not be that helpful when you try connecting with your higher self, or it may be less effective in quieting your thoughts during your meditation. When looking for the right crystal, you should feel connected with it.
One of the first steps you can do is to assess your goals during meditation, then do some research on what crystal would work best depending on your needs. For example, if you have trouble sleeping, moonstone and amethyst are among the best crystals for healing and overcoming insomnia.
Placement of crystals
By this, we mean the physical placement of the stone in your body. Whether it is best to put it in your palm, wear it around your neck, and so on. For this, you also have to be familiar with which stones resonate well with body chakras.
Rose quartz, for example, is well known for its association with the heart chakra. We also have Citrine and Tiger’s Eye, which have a connection with the solar plexus. If you already have the perfect stone, focus on the chakra point in your body and use the crystal to channel your energy.
Cleansing your crystals
Just like your body, these healing crystals need cleansing for them to work as intended. Practitioners clean their crystals before meditation by using sage or incense smoke. Others would take their crystals outdoors and leave them under the sun for a few hours. Some practitioners immerse the stones in saltwater. You can also do this to your crystal after you meditate to be clean the next time you use it.
Creating crystal barriers
Most practitioners prefer their thoughts to be undisturbed during meditation. For the practitioners to have a clear perspective, they practice creating an energy field. They can create an energy field by placing the crystals around the practitioner. It is a good way for you to strategically place your crystals if you do not want any of them to be touching your body. The crystals placed around the practitioner may vary.
Crystals can be more than just their usual label as pretty rocks. The effectiveness and efficiency of these gemstones are not limited to the metaphysical field but other things like technology and medicine. After all, their thousand years old presence is proof of their versatility. In the end, there is nothing wrong with incorporating different mediums when you meditate as long as you are doing it correctly.
