Why should you use these essential stones in your meditation practice?

We know many people who say, “I can’t meditate because I’m going to be wrong. But the only bad way to meditate is not to do it.  Of course, the most common excuse is, “I don’t have time.” There is an old Zen saying: “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day unless you are too busy, so you should sit for an hour.”

Meditation really gives you more time. This allows you to work smarter instead of harder. Once you stop pushing and trying to get things moving, you may suddenly find that they are just doing it – without all the stress.  If you invest daily in meditation, it makes life’s journey easier. It is a powerful tool that can help you manage life, instead of the life that you handle.

So now, the BIG question is, how are you going to start?  This is where the crystals come into play.

Whether you are an experienced meditator or just starting to practice, it is easier to meditate while holding stones in your hands while you settle your mind. By giving you something tangible to remember, it helps you to concentrate and let yourself go faster. The use of crystals for meditation also helps you to connect with a specific energy, intention or purpose. In addition, it makes meditation more fun when you see the brilliance of your crystals.
