How Crystals Help With MeditationWe've written a whole article on how stone energy works so in this article, we'll just briefly explain that different crystals vibrate at different frequencies, which correspond to outcomes and solutions we are looking for in our lives. By bringing crystals into our energy field, we can bring about those outcomes more easily.
During meditation, we are in a heightened state which allows us to interact with crystals in a way that is more powerful than when we aren't in that state. Crystals can really help you make changes and move your life forward in ways that might have seemed impossible without them. Plus, they help deepen your meditation practice so that you get more out of the experience.
The energy of healing stones rejuvenates and harmonizes the mind, body, and spirit just by being in their presence. When we meditate, we are more susceptible and receptive to that energy, and it provides us with the following benefits:
- Our bodies become more in sync with the resonance of the meditation crystals, so their healing properties are more easily received.
- We are able to go deeper into our meditation practice, and can therefore experience more powerful outcomes.
- We are able to connect more easily with our higher consciousness and can come to deeper realizations, insights, and spiritual awareness.
- Our energy centers become more balanced, helping us to improve our mental, physical, and spiritual health.
Using Meditation Crystals to Amplify Your Intention

This practice will help you attract your desired outcome to you and you'll boost your passion and drive for the goal.
Using Meditation Crystals to Raise Your Consciousness
Meditation crystals are one of the best tools for raising your consciousness, otherwise known as raising your vibration. When you accomplish that, you will feel more light-hearted, happy, and inspired. You'll bring more love into your life, and you'll attract more of what you desire to you. The best crystals to use for this purpose are blue, purple, and white crystals (our all-time favorite is an amethyst geode).

The left hand is our receiving hand, and our right hand is our giving hand, so when you are meditating with crystals, you'll want to hold them in your left hand to receive their energy and healing properties.
You can use your crystal as a visual focal point before you close your eyes, and you can use it as a mental focus point as well, which just means that you focus on the energy it is giving off while your eyes are closed. You might feel vibrations, warmth, tingling or some other kind of sensation coming from the crystal. You could also ask the crystal a question or tell it your intention at the start of your meditation practice.
Lay Stones on and Around the Body
This method works especially well for physical ailments. Lay down and place crystals on certain areas of the body you want to heal or activate. Then meditate and focus on absorbing the healing properties of the crystals.
