How to Meditate with Crystals:

There is no wrong way of meditating with crystals. It is important with any time of spiritual work, including working with crystals, to most importantly do what you feel to do.

  •  Placing crystals in the palms of our hands: You may want to do 1 crystal in 1 hand or 1 crystal in each hand. You can do 2 different crystals in each hand or the same type of crystal. Our palms are energy centres in our bodies that can give out energy and receive energy into them. When you meditate with crystals in your hands, you can focus on holding them and see what you feel from them. Do you feel energy moving up your arms into your body? or do you feel something else in your body or emotions or psychic sight?
  • Placing crystals on your chakras: You can place crystals on your specific chakras if there is a particular chakra you would like to open or do healing work on. See our blog on how to work with the chakras here
  • Have crystals placed in the room where you will be meditating: You don’t necessarily have to have a crystal on you or be holding one physically to receive the healing properties. Crystals are very powerful allies to us. They even work when in the same room as us. If you are meditating sitting down, you can have a crystal placed in front of you or behind you. If you are meditating lying down, you can have crystals placed next to you or wherever in the room you would like to have them.

Happy meditating!
