Crystals For Meditation
Meditation is often a little understood and even less practiced act of complete calming, understanding, and relaxation. We believe the reason most people do not meditate is because they either do not know how or cannot seem to achieve the deep meditative state they seek. In today’s busy and often stressful life, meditation can act as a soothing and calming act. It can help you find deeper meaning and understanding to your spirit and psyche. Even 15 minutes a day of meditation can help you overcome stress and find the inner peace you desire. Stress is also very bad for our physical body and proper meditation has been proven to alleviate stress and symptoms associated with it. If you are seeking to find an aid in meditation, there is nothing more powerful than crystals. Just holding the right ones in your hands while your meditate can make a world of difference.
Much like pure white, silver is the color of the moon, the feminine, the night, introspection, the cyclic nature of life, coolness, stillness, magic, and ambiguity. Silver is a mirror, a reflection, and a path to the inner consciousness. Silver is a priestess to gold’s high priest. It is gray, but a reflective gray. It is lonely, altruistic, and aloof. It is a mystery. Silver crystals find patterns and the inner meanings of events. Use silver crystals and minerals for quiet meditation, finding your real purpose in life, and calm reflection on life’s meanings.
