CHECK INTO YOUR HEARTS DESIRES
Set your intention for what you would like the stone or crystal to support you with. What does your heart desire today? You may be looking for more love and compassion, energy and focus, grounded and clear or help with physical ailments and healing. Or maybe you don't know what you need, just let the stones support you to what feels best.
OPEN PALM CHAKRAS
For starters, you will want to open your palm chakras by rubbing your hands vigorously together to awaken the energy centers in your palms. This will create an energy field. Explore the field by imagining a ball of energy in between your hands. You may become aware of sensations in your hands, a tingling, warmth or a feeling of dense energy may arise.
HOLD THE STONE
Tune in to the frequency of your stone by placing your hands over or cupping the stone. Notice what sensations you begin to feel in your hands, body or even in your emotional being.
SENSE INTO THE PHYSICAL BODY
What do you sense from your crystal? Take a few moments to really connect and tune in to what you are sensing. Scan your body to notice any physical sensations you may feel as you hold this stone.
What are you experiencing, do you feel heat or cold, tingles or throbbing? Do you feel clarity, spacey or lightheaded? Do you have a sense of grounded peacefulness? Continue to check in with your physical body as take your time noticing the feelings that arise as you hold the stone.
SENSE INTO THE EMOTIONAL BEING
Continue to hold and connect with the stone, sense into your emotional being. How are you feeling emotionally? What emotions are coming up for you? Joy, courage, gratitude, peace, calm, sad, anxious, mad? Just tune in, take notice of how you are feeling as you hold the stone.
SENSE INTO THE MENTAL BEING
While you are still connecting and holding the stone check into your mental awareness. How do you feel mentally? Have you experienced mental pictures or images in your mind? Do you feel anxieties, scattered or a clear, peaceful calm taking over your body?
The beauty in going through these steps is to allow you to take time to pause, evaluate your physical, emotional and mental being allowing you to form a personal connection to your stone or crystal for what is going on in your life right now.
With this information and your personal experience, you can see and get a sense of what and how the perfect stone can help you sleep, reduce stress, feel courageous, take actions, reduce cravings, feel optimistic and excited for your souls' purpose.
