This is a great tip if you feel a bit off-kilter, sluggish or not quite yourself. It can be a quick pick-me-up emotionally too. However, it’s a great and easy way to practise regular self care at any time.
My favourite crystals for this exercise are: Carnelian, Amethyst or Unakite. But there are many others you can choose.
Make yourself comfortable in a place where you will not be disturbed. You can sit with your feet flat on the floor, or lie down. If sitting hold the crystal(s) in your hands. If lying down place the carnelian at the sacral chakra (about 2 inches or 5 cm below your belly button) or the unakite or amethyst at the heart. Take a deep breath in and exhale gently. As you exhale, feel yourself releasing any feelings or emotions that are not for your highest good. Continue to breathe slowly and deliberately in and out. Intend to release any unwanted energy each time you exhale, until all negative energy or feelings have been released. Take another deep breath in and feel the energy of the crystal begin to enter your physical body. Feel the uplifting healing energy of the crystal as it also strengthens your immune system. Continue to breathe in and out, while the allowing the warm light from the crystal to expand outward, until it fills your entire physical body. You may begin to feel floaty and warm, continue this breathing with your crystal, feeling the light energy begin to expand outside your body, until it has filled your entire aura with loving and healing energy. When you feel ready you can slowly open your eyes, wriggle about, shake your limbs about and drink a glass of water to ground yourself. Don’t worry if you fall asleep (as long as it is safe to do so), just have a glass of water when you wake up.
NOTE: I am not medically trained and this crystal exercise can only boost your immune system by working on your sense of wellbeing.
