Meditating with crystals

I was wondering if anyone has experience with crystals, meditation and chakras, and perhaps advice.

I use a guided meditation app. It is timed, but I am being pulled out and have had a heavy exit. My goal is to ground and continue to meditate.

I tried obsidian and it was like not meditating at all. I could not even feel prana. Is there a continuum of crystal strengths for grounding? Or is it dependent on the individual?

Thank you for reading!

Hmm - should you be using a 'grounding' crystal/gemstone for meditating? If I were to use Obsidian then it would be for the purpose of psychic protection. Not sure about the continuum of crystal strengths, haven't had an awful lot of experience with using crystals for meditation, a bit pointless my message I know

I see what you are saying. I am not trying to astral in my meditation and so perhaps, protection is part of the purpose. Thank you for the thoughts.

I like to go on little inner journeys with stones. Rather than place them in certain positions, I look at them and let my imagination flow. Or just sit quietly holding them and let my mind do what it wants.

If it wants to start mentally writing the next food shopping list, I'll gently push those thoughts away and look at the crystal to see what appears.

Enjoyable, relaxing and occasionally inspiring.

Thank you AppleCore for the idea! I had never thought of that! I will give it a go.
