What Are the Benefits of Meditation With Crystals?
When you meditate, you enter into a relaxed state and quiet your thoughts so you can hear your inner voice – your higher self. Crystals are tools that can make your meditation more effective.
Here are the many benefits associated with using meditation crystals.
- Help you have a calmer mind
In order to meditate, you need to calm your mind from running a thousand thoughts per second. During your meditation crystals can give you peace, calmness, and serenity.
- Help reduce stress
The busy life can cause you to be stressed at times. The more stressed you are, the more difficult it will be to enter into a meditative system. Choosing the right crystal for your meditation can help deter your stress.
- Lessen negativity
When you find it difficult to forget or to move on from negative situations, you can use the help of a healing crystal. Healing crystals can aid you in removing the negative thoughts and emotions as you meditate.

There will be days that you feel lazy and unmotivated to do anything.
Crystals can be your source of energy whenever you feel exhausted. They can also provide you the power to boost your meditation practice.
Which Are The Best Crystals for Meditation?
There are lots of crystal you can use for meditation. Each one has its own benefits and healing properties.
In choosing a meditation crystal, the best ones will be those that lift your energy, along with the ones you feel a connection to. When buying from a shop, simply choose the crystal that you are most drawn to. Try to hold it and see how it makes you feel.
Here’s a list of the most popular meditation stones and their meanings.
1. Clear Quartz
This is the most commonly used stone for healing. It is known for both spiritual and physical recovery.

If you are searching for answers and solutions to your problems, it should be your go-to stone during meditation. It provides clarity and deeper insight.
Different Ways To Meditate With Crystals
Once you have chosen your crystal, you are ready to start your meditation. Here are various ways to meditate with crystals
1. Hold the crystal in your hands while meditating
By holding a crystal in your hand during your meditation, you'll exchange energies and vibrations with the stone and feel its effects.
2. Crystals on your body
If your intention for a crystal meditation is healing, you can place your chosen crystal on one of your chakras. Your chakras are the energy points in your body representing different parts of your physical and spiritual self.
3. Create a crystal energy field.
If you are someone who does not want to disrupt your meditation by having crystals touching your body, then you can create a crystal grid to connect with your crystal’s energy, without physically touching them.
Otherwise, you can place your chosen crystals somewhere in front of you, close enough so that you can focus on them and feel their energy.
What to Avoid When Using Crystals For Meditation
There are a few things you should avoid when using crystals for meditation.
You may get lost due to the huge variety of crystals available. Don’t let the vast number of options hinder you from focusing on your meditation practice. I suggest starting with two or three crystals to which you feel a connection. You can work your way up once you have established your meditation practice.
A Simple Crystal Meditation Technique
1. First, look for a quiet place and sit in a relaxed sitting position
2. Hold your crystal in your left hand, or in both hands if you need to.
3. Look into your crystal with presence and awareness, and carefully notice its unique features, such as its color, texture, light reflections, ridges, or points. Visualize your awareness spiraling down into the stone. Then feel the crystal’s energy surrounding you
4. Close your eyes, noticing how your crystal appears on your inner mental screen. Breathe in and let your crystal’s energy permeate your senses.
5. Then, start to visualize your intention or goal. Your crystals are listening.
6. Sit in oneness with your crystal as long as you need it.
7. You’ll know when you’re finished because you will feel completely relaxed and at peace. Then open your eyes as you take a few deep breaths.
With constant practice, meditation with crystals will have a positive effect on your life. You will benefit not only from the healing properties of your crystals but also by getting in tune with your higher self.
