In this guide, we will look at how to meditate with crystals, and the best crystal meditation technique script.

If you’re looking for a good set of meditation crystals I recommend this one.

Crystals add a new element to a meditation practise. Rachell Williams [Vedic Educator, The Chopra Center] says, “crystals add a dimension of inner exploration that can be quite rewarding—and fun!”

Sadly, there is no scientific evidence on the effects of crystals. Indeed, research by Christopher French, Lyn Williams, and Hayley O’Donnell suggests that meditation crystals work by placebo.

However, many teachers and gemologists believe they work, and they have been used in different cultures for thousands of years.

Let’s look at the best crystal meditation technique [script].

How To Meditate with Crystals [Meditation Technique Script]

1: Choose your meditation crystal wisely 

Different meditation crystals have different benefits

Meditation gemstones have unique properties that can help to boost your mind-state. 

According to Amy Leigh Mercree [holistic health expert and author], crystals work because of the way their atoms and molecules move and interact.

The atoms and molecules of different gemstones move in different ways. That’s why you need to know how to choose the best meditation crystal for your individual needs. 

2: Sit with good posture in a quiet space 

Find a quiet and peaceful area where you will not be disturbed [it’s best to have a room of the house dedicated to practice]. Sit with good posture in a meditation chair. 

Place your feet at shoulder-width apart. Make sure your spine is straight but relaxed and comfortable. Gently lower your chin to elongate your neck.

3: Breathe mindfully for a few moments

 Take a few moments to mindfully breathe.

Watch your breath moving in and out of your body. This promotes the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system to help you to relax.

4: Hold your meditation crystal in front of you.

 It is important that your meditation crystal  be in your hands. Heather Askinosi [co-founder, Energy Muse] says, “The best way how to meditate with crystals is by holding them [because] it allows you to develop a tangible connection to the crystals as you meditate.” Holding the crystal lets it influence your energy and vibrations.

5: Look at your crystal and observe its every detail. 

Meditate on the crystal. The aim is to make your mind one with the meditation crystals. Like you would with other meditation techniques (e.g. Bhakti). Let thoughts and feeling come and go. You can label your thoughts and feelings if this helps you to focus.

When you meditate on an object in this way, you bind your energy to that object. For instance, if you have a Buddhist prayer bead mala, it will be full of peaceful energy. When you wear your mala, you feel more relaxed.

Meditation crystals do a similar thing. We develop a connection with meditation crystals.

When you meditate with a crystal, you create a connection with it. It becomes a symbol of peace and healing. Then, the next time you meditate with the crystal, you will find it easier to access that same state of peacefulness. 

6: Close your eyes and take a deep breath in. Now imagine that you are inside your meditation crystal. 

Allow yourself to become absorbed in the gemstone. Let any thoughts you have subside. Quiet your mind. Move into the crystal, allowing yourself to explore it. Visualize being inside your meditation crystal so that the energy of the crystal merges with your own energy. 

Continue meditating in this fashion for ten minutes.

7: Take ten deep breaths and gradually return to psychical reality. Express gratitude for your mediation crystal.

How to cleanse a meditation crystal 

When you first get your meditation crystal, it will have been around for many years and will likely have been handled by many people. That means that the energy of the crystal will not be pure. You want your crystal meditation technique to be as effective as possible Therefore, you should cleanse your crystal.

Be careful with your meditation crystal.  Some meditation crystals are fragile, and some may fade in sunlight. It’s a good idea to wrap them in velvet or silk when you’re not using them, which will help to protect them.

You can cleanse your meditation crystal by burying it in the ground. This removes negative energy from the crystal.

Get dried sea salt. Pour the salt into a glass. Delicately place the crystal in the salt with the point facing downward. Leave overnight.

You can also use cleansing crystals. Crystals such as carnelian and quartz have cleansing properties.

Put a cleansing crystal in a bag with other crystals to cleanse them. Cleanse your crystal once when you first get it. That will purify it. And then cleanse it again every so often to keep it clear of negative energy. Now that it has been properly washed, we can start meditating with the crystal.

And that is how to meditate with crystals.
