Learn how to meditate with crystals. What are the benefits of crystal meditation? Learn how to connect with your crystals and tap into crystal energy for your mind, body and spirit…

Why Meditate With Crystals?

One of the best ways to connect with your crystals is through the power of meditation. When you meditate with crystals you can really tap into their energy in an instant and very direct way.

I meditate with crystals a lot but I am not sure how others do this. You don’t have to shave your head and move to the top of a mountain to meditate (this does sound more appealing than it used to…). Just a five or ten minute crystal meditation is all you need.

How To Meditate With Crystals

There are many different styles of meditation, if you’re already doing one try combining it with crystals. I don’t believe any technique is really better, it’s more about finding one that works for you. I personally like meditations that use visualisation, so that is how I meditate with crystals.

In this blog post, I’m going to share a simple crystal meditation you can try plus a free guided meditation track.

Which Crystal Should I use?

This is really up to you. There are some crystals that are good for a meditation practice in general but here I really want you to use the tool of meditation to connect with your crystals.

This is a great way to get to know a new crystal or one that has been a bit neglected. You can also use this to tap into the energy or properties that you need right now. So pick your crystal and let’s go!

Filter Out Distractions

You can meditate with crystals anywhere you feel comfortable. The least distractions you have the better, this is why we close our eyes. Perhaps you can find a quiet relaxed place in your home or outside in nature? If you’re indoors, close any doors and put your phone on mute or quiet mode.

Creating Sacred Space

This is entirely optional but having some relaxing music playing quietly in the background might be helpful. You can also use ambient sounds like waves or forest sounds. There are lots of free meditation music and ambient sounds on Youtube.

Other ways to create a nice ambience that is with the power of scent. Diffuse some relaxing natural essential oils in a diffuser or oil burner. You could also burn some incense in a well-ventilated room.

For meditation, I recommend Sandalwood, Rose, Frankincense, Frankincense and Myrrh, Lavender or Aloeswood. Beware of synthetics, see my Amazon Shop for high-quality all-natural incense suggestions HERE.

Simple Crystal Meditation

Here are the instructions for a simple crystal meditation. If you prefer I also have a FREE guided meditation video which uses visualisation below that you might like to try (it’s powerful).

1. Sit with your legs crossed on a cushion if possible. If not use a chair. Get comfortable.

2. Hold your crystal and before you begin, look at it closely. Turn it around, look at the shape, colours and any special characteristics.

3. Now hold your crystal with both hands, resting them in your lap. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

4. Focus on the crystal in your hands, feel it and see it clearly as possible in your mind’s eye.

5. Just relax and be open to receiving the energy of the crystal as you focus on it, breathing in and out naturally. If your mind wanders, bring it back to the stone.

6. Once you have finished. Open your eyes but take your time before getting up or doing anything else.

    Awesome meditation, I’ve been doing this for ages. I also find myself “going inside” some crystals, especially the faceted, polished, and semi-polished/faceted stones that stand up and feel like “houses” or “temples” to me. I explore the facets or “rooms” inside, if that’s where it takes me. This is my favorite way to meditate with crystals, along with visualization.

    Love this! Thank you for sharing, meditating with crystals really does work. It is important to be able to clear the mind and focus on the process. This is so useful to those that are beginners or unsure how to do it.

      @Sim, you might not know this but only perhaps 1 in 10 people can actually pick up on a crystal’s energies at all. It could simply be that you’re one of the 9 in 10 who aren’t (yet) able. Of course, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t helping you!

      Love and Light.

    I almost never meditate nowadays: for one, I rarely get the peace and quiet, and for two, I tend to find myself very drained by it.

    But I use a similar process when I meet a neglected or abused crystal. Healing them is possible, but it takes some time, depending on what exactly has happened to it (the worst I’ve met so far was a beautiful little Clear Quartz which had been used – don’t ask me now, I don’t know and nor do I want to – for black magic; it wouldn’t even talk to me for three months and it took another three for me to learn the story and, in effect, counsel the crystal, little by little; and it still didn’t trust anyone else even after that) and a great deal of love and caring.
