Achieving Inner Peace: Meditating With Gem Stones

Meditation can truly help you achieve inner peace. It’s beneficial to your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Through the practice, you can achieve higher states of consciousness, release negative energy, lower your blood pressure, rid your body of tension and increase your awareness. To aid with all of this, many people opt to meditate with crystals and gemstones.

Meditating with gems

Stones and gems can help you to achieve a deeper meditative state. Whether you wear them while meditating (check out the mala bracelet selection) or hold them in your hands. Each stone has certain properties, and you can absorb these properties while you meditate.

Gather stones that you’re interested in. Each stone holds specific properties, so root out the best for you. Lie down on a flat surface and place the stones over the relevant chakras. Once each stone is placed, close your eyes and contemplate the properties of each stone. Feel the negative energy rush from your body and feel the energy of each crystal or gemstone radiate.
