Buddha said "The mind is everything, you become what you think".
Meditation is of major benefit to your health as it helps you to relax, helps clear your mind and enables the release of negative energies and unwanted thoughts. Using crystals is a very powerful tool which assists to deepen your meditation, focus your intention and guides you to achieve a specific outcome, or several specific outcomes, during your meditation.
Crystals and meditation
The use of crystal stones dates back to ancient times. Egyptians used rose quartz as a beautifying aid and amethyst as protection for their traveling emissaries. Today, crystal healing is not necessarily attached to a specific religion, though it has been connected to many in the past.
Crystals are seen as a spiritual way to balance energy—affecting emotions, relationships, and the like. Every crystal has its own kind of energy—some boost our mood or levels of vitality, some help to calm us down, some help us focus, etc. It’s just energy vibration affecting our own energy vibration. It’s a matter of balance—the same kind of end goal sought from meditation.
Let your intention guide you
An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world—during meditation, yoga or any area of your life. Intention is the starting point of every dream. It is the creative power that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love.
The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The Vedic text declares, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
An intention shouldn’t be confused with a goal—it’s not something you attach an expectation to. It’s just something you want to align with in your life. Intentions are not the tangible “lose 10 pounds” sort of goals. They are heart-driven and evoke feeling and purpose, like “send love out to the world” or “let go of fear”. Setting an intention is a way to bring your heart and mind into alignment.
Set and wear your intention
Using mala beads to set intentions is a powerful way to manifest your dreams and achieve your goals. Mala beads are meditation tools that encourage you to pause, breathe and realign with your deepest intentions. Wearing crystals and gemstones will raise your vibration and further attract your intentions to you.
Your mala necklace is a visible reminder of your purpose. Carrying your intentions with you and regularly referring to what you want and why you want it is a known way of achieving your purpose. In the bustle of our modern lifestyle, your mala necklace can help you to stay focused.
Setting intentions is a powerful tool for helping you achieve happiness and fulfillment. They provide purpose and allow you to live in the present moment while still aiming towards new goals.
