How to: Meditate Using Crystals
Crystals have been something humans have used for as long as we have existed. It’s something that we have been historically drawn too and now, people are starting to become more conscious and aware of these colourful little stones. So, what exactly are they? Crystals are solid materials made up of matter (atoms, ions or molecules – these are arranged in a way that they are a highly microscopic structure). Mostly, they are known as being extremely beautiful pieces of matter that people often seek comfort and guidance from. Meditation is also something that brings people great comfort and allows them to separate themselves from their ego and reach a state where their thoughts literally empty their mind (it sounds way too good to be true but, it isn’t). It’s no wonder that people combine meditation and crystals together to reach a state of bliss and happiness.
We decided that we wanted to find out how people meditate with crystals (we discovered a lot) and we have compiled our findings into the article for you to navigate and come back too whenever you’re seeking a bit of guidance.

How Do Crystals Work?
Crystals have vibrational frequencies. All life has vibration including the planet so, when we experience illness or an imbalance, our vibrational energy is off. We are not giving off good vibes and not able to receive good vibes. Crystals help us to realign ourselves by placing the crystal on the area of blockage.
Choosing a Crystal to Balance Your Chakras
I believe that intuitively we are attracted to what we need and resonate with it. The colors and crystals that you are attracted too will also depend on whether there are other chakras or energy centers out of balance.

I think that one of the key things to consider when using crystals is the importance of regular cleaning of the crystals as they absorb energies. I usually do this using sage smudging or placing the crystals under moonlight (as recommended by the authors of Energy Muse).

Crystal experts recommend larger crystals that fit comfortably into your hand. Larger crystals are said to put out more energy and take less concentration to hold onto when compared to smaller crystals.
