Loose gemstones, like garnet stones for instance, not only look beautiful displayed upon a desk, they can also be incredible tools for meditation. At Technalink, we believe that meditation is a brilliant way to open up your mind, embrace your spiritual leadership, and defeat negative energy in favor of positive creativity, and loose gemstones can be a big help in centering and bringing focus to your daily meditation sessions.
Gemstones have different meanings and energies behind them, and this is something you’ll want to consider before choosing a stone or stones to meditate with. Like the aforementioned garnet stones, garnet is a stone that represents willpower, determination, calm, making positive financial decisions, and is also said to benefit positive energy circulation. Each stone you choose to hold or surround yourself with comes with a different meaning and a different benefit it can bring to your meditative practices and your energy.
Loose gemstones, as opposed to prayer beads or mala beads, can be used in a variety of different ways throughout your meditation. A few of these ways are:
If you’re feeling a particular way, and you’re in need of a particular energy, you can wear your chosen meditation stones in some form of jewelry to take with you all throughout your day. Necklaces and bracelets with small cage-type pendants to hold stones may be worn so you can hold this energy close, and feel it radiate while you’re having a short meditation session at the workplace, during a commute, at home, or anywhere. Particularly beneficial for those who travel often, your key to calm is always nearby.
Rolling the stone or stones in your hands while you practice your meditation and repeat your mantra can help to keep you on track while also providing you with the benefit of the stone’s energy. If you have a collection of meditation stones, you can simply choose those you feel most drawn to, and keep them in your hands as you meditate.
3. Resting nearby
The energy inside loose gemstones doesn’t need to be held to be felt, and sometimes having you chosen stones nearby during a meditation session can be enough to share in their energy. If you keep your stones resting on a desk or tabletop, they also bring a serene beauty to the room.
