This is a continuation of my meditation experiences with crystals. It is possible that you experience similar sensations during meditation with these crystals as well.
Elestials are a special crystal, they are formed in layers within itself. They are deeply spiritual crystals which are also powerful healing tools. They are a higher vibration crystal that can give you the soul connection of two (or more) people. I have done this several times and it has been a very powerful visionary meditative tool. Two people sit facing each other and hold the Elestial together, one puts it in their hand and the other puts their hand over it. They sit in meditation for a time and they can learn their soul connection or even past life experiences.
Another special crystal I like to work with is a Time Link crystal. This is another very high vibration crystal. This crystal can transport you to another time, past or future, very quickly. Every time I use this, I reach a higher level or realm quickly. Pain, trauma, misconceptions and other issues can be healed after accessing past lives through a time link crystal. After meditation with a time link I ground myself quite thoroughly. I failed to ground myself last time I used it and I suffered from dizziness for the following two days. Then I had to do a complete grounding layout on myself.
Other more common crystals that I like to meditate with are Carnelian, Hemetite, Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline.
Carnelian is something I use often, usually around the 3:00 p.m. slump time. Instead of coffee or a chocolate bar, grab a Carnelian for a boost of energy. It only take a few minutes and then you are good to go again. Those are also good for using in an energizing bath. Just put some salts in a bath, a few Carnelians, some orange or peppermint essential oil and soak.
I use Hematite, Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline often to ground myself to Mother Earth. It is an awesome experience to meditate with crystals to heal or access information but we still need to remember we are here to experience a human existence. Grounding with any of these three stones is a great way to connect to Mother Earth, and they work rather quickly. Just place one of these crystals at your feet (bare feet is best) and stand or sit for a few minutes and visualize a cord connecting you to the core of the earth. These crystals are good to carry with you for protection and shielding you from negative energies.
I offer healing sessions for grounding, increasing energy and other healings for many issues. There are so many crystals that can be used for healing physical, emotional and spiritual issues you may be facing. If you are interested in crystal healing or would like more information on meditation with certain crystals please contact me.
So I have posted a general "how to go about meditating" blog before but this time I wanted to share what you can experience during meditation with crystals. I meditate with crystals every day and using crystals during meditation brings the experience to a much deeper level. Different crystals can bring different results, and different crystals can also bring different vibrations. Some crystals are much higher vibrations and they not only make your physical body feel the energy but you also enter other realms. The crystals I use most of the time are Angelite, Opal and Selenite. That combination brings be to a deep peaceful healing state. I can feel the energy surrounding my body during meditation. The sensation is like a swirling of positive energy. I also am able to communicate with my angels and other spirit guides while using those crystals. Another set of crystals that I use often is Rainbow Quartz and Danburite. That is a powerful combination because they are both a bit higher vibration naturally and I can feel the difference right away. The energy surrounding me is stronger, more powerful. I have used some very high vibration crystals as well. You have to be careful using high vibration crystals because they can make you dizzy or lightheaded. It is important to ground yourself after using them by placing a Smokey Quartz, Black Tourmaline, or Hematite at your feet for a few minutes after the meditation. Aurora quartz (pictured below) is one of my favorite high vibration crystals. It is highly connected to the angelic realm. Although I can access that realm using other crystals, the Aurora brings me to that level very quickly and it is much more profound. I can access much more angelic energies while using that quartz. Another one of my favorite high vibration crystals is the Devic. That is a very unique crystal in such that I can access information that I need to know rather quickly. The Devic is connected to Deva realm and they are there to provide answers. They are not there to become friends or guides, they are straight forward, to the point, no fluff, just answers. Now, if I ask something and it is not time for me to have the answer yet, they will tell me that too. There are many Devas that come through at once, and some talk over others, and they all have different personalities. It can be rather entertaining. Of course, another one of my favorite high vibration crystals (yes I think they are all my favorite!) is the Cathedral Lightbrary. I offer the use of this in group meditations every so often. This is the keeper of the Akashic Records. I have gone into this crystal several times during meditation and experienced all the aspects of it such as the book of records, the record keeper, the layout of the inside and what it looks on the outside. Meditating with this is truly an amazing experience. Some of my guests have gained some amazing insights from meditating with this crystal. You do not have to choose a high vibration or expensive crystal to gain information or healing energies while meditation. Just start with a simple tumbled stone that you are drawn to. Usually the one that chooses you is the one you need most at the time. Meditate with that crystal for a few days and take note of the changes in your life. It is helpful to journal your meditative experiences, then you can refer back to a point in time and see what changes have occurred. I have several crystals to choose from in the shop, stop by and see me and we can talk about which ones would be good for you to start with.
Do you ever have a hard time sleeping? I used to be addicted to OTC sleep aides (years of addiction) and I would take them every night and still be awake. I even had anxiety over it, I had to take the pills and I knew they were not helping but I still had to take them and end up wide eyed all night long. I eventually said that is enough and stopped taking them and adjusted some things in my life to help me sleep at night. What did I do you ask?? I incorporated crystals with meditation, placed crystals in and around my home, and I started doing yoga . Meditating with crystals allowed me to clear my mind and focus on the healing vibrations the crystals emit. It is a very powerfully healing experience, and I highly recommend it. The crystals I placed around my home are amethyst and quartz. That brought in positive energy to my home. Amethyst is good for insomnia, clearing all the chatter in your head. Place an amethyst under your pillow or near your bed to help you sleep better. Practicing Yoga made a big difference as well. I had no idea it would help me sleep better when I started doing it, but it did, and I didn't even have to become an expert at doing it. I used to do heavy exercise like running, and weight lifting and those didn't help with my sleeping habits. The poses of yoga and stretching techniques completely made my muscles more relaxed. All of those combined made a tremendous difference in being able to get to sleep and go back to sleep if I wake up. Another option is Lavender calming spray, just spray it on the pillow case and around the area. It is made with dried lavender and it has amethyst chips in. I have had great reviews from those using my lavender spray for calming an environment. I sell those items in my shop if you are interested. If you want more information on meditation I would be happy to help you there too.
Ok so several people have been noticing that I have been losing weight and I have for a few months now without "dieting." I wanted to share what I have been doing to accomplish that. I use a combination of essential oils, meditation, crystals and angel healing. I have been using a mixture of grapefruit essential oil and coconut oil for about 7 months now. Dr. Axe says that grapefruit essential oils supports metabolism and cellulite reduction. He suggests to mix with coconut oil and rub on areas of cellulite. He has a mixture guide at http://draxe.com/essential-oils-guide/. So I have been using this mixture and it has helped curb my appetite and I have stopped craving certain foods as well. Adding meditation with crystals into the equation was just another added bonus for the process. During meditation I feel the healing throughout my whole body and using crystals during meditation just amps up the vibration to another level. I also ask my angels and guides to help with my healing and weight loss because it is another positive added benefit. It has not been a quick weight loss process but I have not had to really think about it and over all it was rather easy. I still eat the foods I want to eat without worrying about what I eat. I feel that using all these methods has been very successful for me. I have lost 20 pounds in about 5 months without dieting. Plus I get the extra added benefits of meditation (see my meditation blog), crystal energy healing and angel energy. I also believe you can combine essential oils, crystals, meditations and angel therapy for other areas of healing or concern. I offer weight loss crystal therapy sessions so let me know if you are interested in more information or would like to make an appointment for crystal therapy.
What is time? To us, time is almost everything. "I won't make it in time, I don't have enough time, there is never enough time, it's time to do this or that, I am running out of time." We plan our lives around events, deadlines, schedules, appointments and then something unexpected comes up and throws it all off. We stress about it, we worry about it, we lose sleep over it. It shortens our lives because we are so caught up with it, and we find ourselves wishing it away, "I wish it were Friday." It can be exhausting. We plan our whole lives around time. The Universe does not have time. If we switch our thinking to... there is all the time in the world...then things seem to fall in to place easier, everything still gets done and in a more peaceful manner. I hope you find the time to say it often...there is all the time in the world.
Meditation is something that I feel is very important so I thought I would share my views on it. By meditating often (I try to every day) it has changed my life. Meditation can heal the body, mind and spirit in profound ways. By meditating often one can reduce or reverse the negative effects that stress has caused on one's body. Since I began meditating my daily stress level has decreased dramatically. I do not dwell or worry like I used to and I physically feel much better because all of the stress is not weighing me down like it used to. I still have stressful moments and worry occasionally but not like I used to. I feel it is just as important to meditate each day as it is to exercise and eat a healthy diet. All you need to do is make the time, that is the key. Once you get into a routine and you feel the changes and benefits of it, you will want to find the time for it. There are several ways to meditate. I lay down, close my eyes and hold crystals because I am so connected to them. I take a few deep breaths, go through relaxing all parts of my body and then I focus on the vibrations the crystals emit to clear my mind. When day to day thoughts start trying to come back to me (and they always do), I bring my attention back to my breathing and back to the vibrations of the crystals. You do not have to use crystals to meditate, that is just my preference. You may want to use a guided meditation. I have listened to Brien Weiss and Esther Hicks meditation CDs several times when I was first starting out with meditation. Find one that is right for you but listen to samples first so you can find one that has a voice you would like to listen to. You can also say mantras such as OM (sounds like AUM). You can incorporate meditation into your yoga routine and some say that you can meditation while running. Listening to music is a great way to meditate but try to stay away from popular music or what is on the radio, it is best to use "spa" or "meditation" music. There are many types of meditation music to choose from, find one that suits you. You can even use a combination of those things and add some candles, essential oils, or incense. Just make the time, pick a place where you can sit or lay down for a short amount of time without being interrupted and give it a try. Start off by trying it a few minutes a day and increase it from there. It is not easy to clear your mind of everyday thoughts so don't get discouraged and keep trying. With a little practice it will start to come easy to you and you will want to do it because you will notice the positive things changing in your life.
