Using crystals for mindfulness
Use crystals during meditationMindfulness meditation is all about rooting yourself to the present moment by focusing on your breath and how you’re feeling at that moment. For some, focusing on their senses (sight, sound, touch etc.) is helpful. Having a crystal with you during meditation gives you something interesting to look at and hold during your meditation. Focus on the colours you can see, how it feels in the hand. How you feel emotionally when you look at it. This video guides you through how to meditate with crystals:
Carry crystals with youAnxiety and stress can strike at any time. Having an anchor item can be useful. This is an item you use to ground yourself to the present moment by touch. A grounding crystal like smokey quartz is ideal for this, simply keep it in your pocket and hold it when you begin to feel overwhelmed. Focus on how it feels and bring yourself to the present moment.
Place them near youInstil your crystals with the intention of mindfulness, so that every time you look at them you will be reminded to be still and mindful. Then place them around you - put one on your windowsill, by your bed and on your desk at work. Every time you look at them remember your intention to be more mindful. Are you new to crystal healing?
