Welcome to this weeks Majestic Creations blog post, which is just another opportunity for us to talk more about crystals and gemstones! This week we really wanted to focus on the use of palmstones and how their use in meditation can help us enter deeper states of consciousness.
I think most people will agree that meditation has become a popular practise and this is reinforced with the fact that so many celebrities are now doing it and speaking openly about it on their social networking platforms. One example that really stands out is Russel Brand. We know he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but we like him and he shares some great content on how to live a fulfilled and blessed life using meditation, specifically transcendental meditation.
Meditation is said to help our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing in a sense that it can help individuals by calming the mind and reducing levels of anxiety and depression. It also improves our attention span, concentration, and overall psychological well-being.
In a recent study conducted by the Johns Hopkins University, they looked specifically in to the relationship between meditation and its ability to reduce symptoms of pain, depression and anxiety. The research team concluded that the effect that meditation has on these issues was ‘moderate’ coming in at 0.3 on the scale. Now 0.3 sounds low too many people but 0.3 equates to the same effect as antidepressant medication. This means that the effect of meditation is actually very promising in the grand scheme of things. The research lead by, Goyal Madhav said “A lot of people have this idea that meditation means sitting down and doing nothing” “but that’s not true. Meditation is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, and different meditation programs approach this in different ways”
With the above in mind we believe that meditation should become a part of everyone’s daily ritual, especially if it isn’t already. It won’t cure us of depression or anxiety but it’s a tool that can be used in line with other medical treatments as prescribed by medical experts and improve our overall wellbeing.
When meditating we can further supplement the process by holding palmstones and these palmstones help us to create a connection between our own spiritual being and the crystal’s vibrational energy. When we hold a palmstone during meditation it helps us to focus and centre our energy combining with our aura. By purifying the mind of its thoughts we are able to immerse ourselves in to deep meditative states and include the healing properties that are present in the crystal.
At Majestic Creations we have a variety of palmstones to choose from and they all have their own unique properties.
Please remember that when you want to purchase palmstones for use in meditation take your time to research and really understand the energy of the crystals. This is a great time to let our intuition take over and choose the best palmstone for our needs.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
