How to use a Crystal for Meditation – The sounds of OM

Tibet healing crystal from Wicked Stones

Once and a while I find these awesome beauties in my collection.  What you are seeing is a gorgeous natural crystal from Tibet.  Tibet crystals are really powerful if you are looking for something that can help you attune to OM vibrations.

Okay now that this is aside, why do “I” want to use a crystal that attunes to the OM vibration? Let’s look into that.

First, what’s an OM?

Om is a Mantra (a sound, or a vibration to make things sound easier) that is traditionally chanted during certain points in your meditation or yoga practices.  This Mantra (or sound) is said to have a very high creative and spiritual power to help with your healing intentions.

Let’s practice!  How do I say this word? 

It actually sounds like the letters A U M put together.  Here’s a fabulous video so that you can hear this sound:

Try this:  Say the word AWWWEEEEEEE and feel it from the back of your throat.  Really pull the sound deep from within you.  Then say OOOOOOOO by making the sound in the upper part of your mouth.  Then feel your lips closer together saying MMMMMM (like you just tasted something incredible.)

Alright, now you have that. So WHY do I want to do that?

Think about our Earth.  Everything is moving. It’s vibrating. It’s energy. It’s pulsating and electrical and there is so much happening that you can’t actually see.   Chanting the OM Mantra is connecting to that universal natural energies around you.  Here’s a few reasons why you might want to do such a thing:

  • Helps you with your own self healing power
  • Relaxation
  • Concentration and focus
  • It is said to purify the area around you and even the people around you as the vibrations spread
  • Creation of positive energy and vibrations
  • Helps with relaxation (dealing with stress! Who doesn’t need THAT?)
  • Helps you to think clearer and make decisions (helps you to relax and overactive mind and thoughts so you can see answers to your questions)

When working with crystals (such as these) you can help attune your crystals with your intentions while meditating and chanting OM.  Especially helpful if you are working with a particular crystal that goes hand in hand with OM energy.

Now this is only scratching the surface of working with Mantras, chanting and meditation.  There’s a lot you can learn to help you along your own personal healing journey from teachers, friends and even books and videos on self help.  It’s a positive step to work with your own personal healing energies so matter what items you choose to work with (crystals, tools etc).

A little joy is always a blessing 🙂

Have an awesome day today.

Crystal for Dealing with Emotional Situations. Agatized Coral.

Every day we deal with emotions.  Some of them good, some of them stressful. Some of them are downright hair pulling madness!

When life tosses you troubles, look perhaps to Agatized Coral for a helpful healing crystal.

Agatized Coral for life changes by wicked stones

Agatized Coral for life changes

It’s a neat way that this crystal was formed.  Many millions of years ago (like 30!) this was a piece of Coral living out it’s life in the Sea.  Along came Father Time and the clocked ticked away.  Silica in the ocean water hardened and replaced the coral with Chalcedony.  And then one day, this crystal came into our lives.  So there’s a lot of interesting history to your crystal.  (The link on the image above goes to my website, if I have these in stock you can find them there.)

Agatized Coral can help you when you are dealing with emotions.  They are especially helpful if this involves family members and arguments or other personal relationships.  It’s sometimes hard to keep your cool.  You can use this as a touch stone to remind you that you can stay focused and safe from the negative energies flying around you.
