We all understand that meditation is an integral aspect of keeping our mind, body and spirit balanced. It assists in clearing our mind, helps us to relax and releases unwanted thoughts and lower energies.
I am constantly asked "what is the best crystal to use during meditation" and my answer is always the same - it really depends on the outcome you are trying to achieve.
On a spiritual level, meditating with crystals can deepen your intuition, bringing insight and guidance. The crystals can help raise your vibration, which in turn raises your consciousness and awareness.
Crystals are some of the divine tools to help you start and maintain your meditation practice, allowing you to connect with a specific intention and/or move into a deeper state of relaxation.
Although any crystal can be used for meditation, I'm here to share with you how you can work with Selenite and the benefits you will reap!
DID YOU KNOW...
Selenite crystals are white in colour and named after the Greek Goddess of the moon, Selene. It's probably for this reason alone that I prefer to activate my Selenite under the light of the moon rather than the sun!
Selenite has a lustery moon-like glow to it and is a beautiful stone for the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.
Selenite is beneficial for meditation as it works on a number of things.
Firstly, it is said to bring mental clarity, allowing your mind to feel calm and de-cluttered. This promotes relaxation of your mind, which flows down to relaxation of the body.
Secondly, Selenite healing properties unblock stagnant energy, allowing the release of any negative or lower vibrations. This energetically cleanses your body and protects your energy field.
Thirdly, and I love this reason - Selenite will not over stimulate your Chakras or etheric body while practicing meditation. The harmonizers allow you to take in as much of the healing properties as you need, making it easy to have calm, free-flowing energy moving through your body.
Selenite can be found in most crystal shops or wellness centres, so it's not going to be a crystal that you struggle to get a hold of. It comes in many forms - from towers to tumbled stones, to wands and lamps. Find the piece that you are most drawn to, as this is the piece that will be most beneficial to you.
Once you have chosen your Selenite, you are ready for meditation!
Please remember, there is no right or wrong way to meditate - everyone's practices are unique, in the same way that everyone may use their Selenite differently.
The most beneficial way to use your Selenite during meditation is to:
a) hold the crystal in your hand
b) lay the crystal on your body, ideally touching your skin
c) place the crystal on the floor by your Crown, ideally touching your head
HOW TO USE...
Find a quiet space where you normally feel comfortable and relaxed.
Place the palms of your hands over the Selenite for a few moments, allowing your energies to connect.
If you haven't already done so, close your eyes and focus your awareness on your breathing.
Pick up the Selenite and either hold the crystal comfortably in your hands, lay in on your body or place it at your Crown Chakra.
Visualise the white glow from the Selenite, flowing deeply into your body. Connect with the energy that this brings.
Breathe in this pure white light and allow the Selenite energy to completely relax your mind and permeate your senses.
Visualise your intention - your Selenite is here to bring guidance and clarity. Listen to the messages that you are receiving.
Stay in this state of relaxation for as long as you need.
When you are ready, and feel completely relaxed and at peace, complete the grounding process by allowing all physical sensations to return to your body. Allow your muscles to reawaken one by one.
Allow your body to reconnect with the Earth.
When you are ready, open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
When you are feeling awake and alert, slowly rise and continue on with your day.
Selenite is an extremely sensitive crystal that acts just like a liquid light from this world to the angelic realm - so it is no surprise that the vibrations you receive from Selenite will lead you to a path of spiritual enlightenment.
