A crystal meditation is a meditation with your crystal.....very self explanatory. (this is a branch of crystal ball gazing)
Crystal meditation is good for the chakras, good for relaxation and a great way to start forming a relationship with your crystal.
(Good for getting to know a new pendulum)
Hold your crystal in your hand (this has nothing to do with energy manipulation so any hand is good) And gaze at your crystal, look at every perfection, every imperfection, notice how it feels in your hands, notice it's energy ,how does it make you feel?.
This is also a branch of crystal ball gazing, usually trying to look for patterns, words or just plain scrying.
Indeed. Crystal cleansing is a method of cleansing your body and chakras.
The person above was quite right, you project your negative energy into the crystal to lock it away. The crystal I reccommend for this is the clear or white quartz, preferably in rock form.
Why?Quartz can be empowered with the powers of any other crystal. Also, it is great for all forms of meditation and relaxation. It is very commonly used to cleanse, as it has a great capacity for things like this.
I also reccommend Smoky Quartz for stress relief, centering, grounding, ect. It is also very good for relaxation- most Quartz types are.
