"I stumbled on your site today while looking for some stone information... I make jewelry on request for friends, who seem to think I "know something they don't"... ha! One thing I DO know is nothing happens by chance, and I feel strongly that I found your site this morning for more than a place to peruse the metaphysical properties of various stones.
I have been wandering about and rather disgusted w/ my own spiritual practice... I am wonderful at reading about it, and talking about it but putting it into practice is another thing entirely. I was very drawn to your Aqua Aura points and your Himalayan Crystal points. I also read a very interesting piece by you about working w/ one stone at a time for a period of a couple weeks or more to get something out of it (I never feel a thing from all the stones I work with, though I have a few I am fond of but I have never used one exclusively for a period of time).
My biggest problem (I think) is that I never actually bother to meditate, I talk about it, read about it, plan to do it... but do I? yeah... you know the answer to that one by now. NO! Certainly not w/ any regularity... I might do it for 3 days in a row, and then not once for the next 3 months... dumb, I know. There must be a block somewhere or I am terminally lazy.
SO... are there any stones you recommend I meditate with to get past this? I have several on my wish list but I just have to have the money to order them :-)
Would Aqua Aura or the Himalayan Quartz be good? Anything else?
You have a fabulous site, and I love your attention to answering questions. Just reading through them is an education in itself!"
Hi there MR!
Thanks so much for visiting our website. We really enjoy receiving feedback from people on the spiritual path who want to enhance their practice through the use of crystals.
Creating a meditation practice can be challenging to most of us practioners. First I would suggest creating a sacred space for meditation. Choose a space that you find comfortable - a place that you would like to go to every day. Have fun developing this space by creating an altar using crystals, offerings (food, flowers, water, etc.), icons (pictures or statues of light beings or sacred symbols), nice cloths - what ever speaks to you. Look for pillows or seats or a chair that you may find comfortable to sit on for at least 20 minutes. The idea is to create a space and time to sit still for a period of time each day. First you may want to start out with 10 minutes, work up to 15 and then to 20 minutes. Once you have the space, then find a good time to practice. I recommend trying it once a day first then working up to twice a day for at least 20 minutes.
I would first recommend using:
I would start out with the Aqua Aura and then add the Himalayan Quartz if it speaks to you. Try both together and see what happens! The Himalayan will amplify your energy during meditation.
Next I would recommend to try: Rhodonite - is great for mantra based meditation
In addition to creating the space, you may want to add either a meditation CD or some music - depending on what speaks to you. Harmonics can really clear and align your chakras and elevate your inner light.
There are lots of meditation techniques out there to try, so I'd experiment. You may want to seek out a formal class and see if it resinates with you, or you may want to try it alone and then venture out and try it with a group. There are even websites out there that have meditation on line that you may want to investigate. Just do what speaks to you and remember to be patient with yourself - you're changing old habits and developing new habits. Letting go is a process that takes time and compassion to develop.
Much Love to you as you venture into yourself!
