I am a self-confessed crystal lover. I love the way I can intuitively pick a crystal which is right for me, in that moment. I love the way they look and feel. But most of all I love how incredibly powerful their healing energy works.
We are drawn to crystals, which reflect where we are at. They are able facilitate our healing. When we are supported by crystals, we raise our vibration, and in doing so can help us to heal.
Much like crystals can heal, meditation does the same thing.
Meditation is a conscious act in bringing yourself into alignment with your highest self. Stepping into the fullness of who you are, ditching the limiting beliefs and preconceived perceptions.
I’ve been meditating for a few years now, and I must admit that when I first started I was totally crap! And, I wriggled and itched and scratched and got distracted like the best of them. Around mid 2014 I began to practice a simple rhythmic breathing meditation (see below) and finally began to get some stillness and received some insights and intuitive nudges. And last year I began to practice Vedic meditation, which is a beautifully easy yet powerful meditation where you sit in silence for 20 minutes repeating a mantra, a non-meaning sound, over and over to distract your mind into stillness. It’s very cool, and it works!
Meditation didn’t come easy to me, but once I began to practice it and I saw the benefits, I just couldn’t NOT do it. Sure there are days where I just don’t manage to sit alone for 20 mins (and many days I don’t do it twice a day). But each moment I make the choice to sit still and breath, I am meditating. I am dropping the stories I tell myself. I am raising my vibration. I am self-healing.
Here is an easy meditation I’d love to share with you to practice at home, it’s a basic rhythmic breathing meditation.
Sit in a comfortable position, or lie down.
Relax and set your intention that you are now meditating for a few minutes.
Begin to breath slowly, but comfortably.
Start to focus on your breath.
Now begin to count your breath
Breath in 1,2,3,4,5
Hold 1,2 3,4,5
Breath out 1,2,3,4,5
Repeat this 10 times, and if you are enjoying the feeling.. keep going.
Love to hear if you give this a try + how you go.
If you want to get a taster for some different meditation styles, I am running my first meditation series beginning on February 7. You can check it out here!
Enjoy + Namaste x x
