Beginners Meditation Instructions
Here is a great meditation to start with once you receive your crystals and candles. If you're a member of the Crystal Inner Circle, check out the Crystal Meditation community and forum if you have any questions for me or any of our gurus!
- 1. Find a relaxing environment, free of clutter, and preferably dimly lit (or only lit by natural light).
- 2. Once you have found an ideal location, light your candle(s). You can also burn any incense or sage stick and add any essential oils you'd like at this time (optional).
- 3. Find a place to take a seat, hold the crystal(s) in your hands (or place over the appropriate chakra), and begin. While many prefer to sit on the floor with crossed legs, your comfort is what is most important. You can sit in your favorite chair or any way you find comfortable. A pain in your back or legs falling asleep is not worth it and will likely break your concentration.
- 4. Once you have found a comfortable place to sit and the candle is burning, it is time to close your eyes and relax. If music or guided meditations help you get there, by all means, use what you need. Here is a link to a specific guided meditation I enjoy.
- 5. Breathe in through your nose, inhaling the sweet scent of fresh air and your candle, and then out through your mouth. You don’t have to think much during this time. Clear your mind and let the thoughts and images come to you.
- 6. Whatever you come across during your meditation session, write it down! Even if it is just brief flashes of images or things that seem trivial, write down everything you can remember. This will give you something to bounce off of later and you’d be surprised how quickly you start noticing a story weaving together.
