A few years ago I went to my first Yoga class and I have to say, I was hooked from the start!
I loved how I felt during the class and the amazing feeling of calmness that I had for days afterwards. It was at that point that I started working with healing stones to help enhance and make a deeper meditative connection to this healing process. (I wont be posting a photo of me doing Yoga here anytime soon as I’m about as graceful as a ostrich in a mud puddle and you’d just laugh yourself off your chair.) 🙂
Once the class was over, I noticed that my stones carried a residual energy of my experiences… it was lovely!! So I decided to being hand crafting a line of jewelry to pass that potential feeling along to you.
Here are a few ideas of gemstones you could wear to help you during your Yoga and meditation practices.
Amethyst: During meditations Amethyst helps to turn thoughts away from the mundane into tranquility and deeper understanding. It is a stone of new ideas.
Quartz Crystal has an enlightening effect on all the Chakras and helps to eliminate negative energy. Often used as a “cleansing” stone to restore positive energy and used in meditations. It raises energy and aids concentration. Some use this stone for divination, building psychic abilities and helping during meditations. It also amplifies any innate psychic or healing powers and is used to increase the power of prayer (especially for healing).
Carnelian: During meditation it can help to remove extraneous thoughts and sharpen your concentration. It calms anger, emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life. It is a grounding stone that anchors you in the present reality and stabilizes with high energy.
These are just a few ideas and I’ll be posting more as my blog grows larger and larger…
Please note though.. if you are going to wear a stone pendant you should consider using a shorter necklace length so that the stone does not hang down in front of your face during some Yoga poses.
