If you have a hard time focusing when you meditate then it might be worth a shot to consider using crystals in your mediation. Think about it. Fortune tellers use a crystal ball to clear their minds and put themselves into a trance. You can do the same thing with a piece of clear quartz or other gem stone.
There are several different methods available for meditation. If you just need a focal point then a deep clear crystal will work well to draw all your attention to a single point. This will let you block out external stimuli and concentrate on the meditation.
Place the crystal at eye level and allow your eyes to relax. You want everything else to blur and all your attention to focus only on the crystal. Work your way through the crystal from the surface to its depths. Try and visualize each different level of the crystal structure. Try imagining the entire lattice work of the crystal and how it’s molecularly held together.
If you’re focusing on a particular issue such as love or money then try choosing a crystal that represents those particular energies. A greenstone such as jade will work for money while a rose quartz will work well for love.
The meditation process is about the same. Focus your attention on the crystal and let your eyes relax. But instead of trying to see through the crystal instead focus on its colors. Let the color associated with your meditation be foremost in your mind.
These are just a couple of the options you have available when using crystals in meditation. Almost any crystal can be used as a focal point. Just suit what works well with your mind state and what you wish to meditate upon. With continued practice you’ll be able to drop into a meditative state easier and easier each time you try.
