meditation & grounding

Here is a list of crystals we recommend for meditation and grounding. Meditation can produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. Hold your crystals when mediating or during spiritual practises. When you feel out of control or need to ground yourself to the earth. 

These are our favourites:

 

Selenite,

Obsidian,

Petrified wood,

Smokey Quartz,

Labradorite,

Apophyllite,

Herkimer diamonds,

Boji Stones

A Basic Meditation for Beginners

 

The first thing to clarify: What we’re doing here is aiming for mindfulness, not some process that magically wipes your mind clear of the countless and endless thoughts that erupt and ping constantly in our brains. We’re just practicing bringing our attention to our breath, and then back to the breath when we notice our attention has wandered.

 

 

  1. Get comfortable and prepare to sit still for a few minutes. After you stop reading this, you’re going to simply focus on your own natural inhaling and exhaling of breath.

  2. Focus on your breath. Where do you feel your breath most? In your belly? In your nose? Try to keep your attention on your inhale and exhale.

  3. Follow your breath for two minutes. Take a deep inhale, expanding your belly, and then exhale slowly, elongating the out-breath as your belly contracts.
