I have found myself in a state of disbelief more than once over the last few weeks. Watching things unfold in the world, I have felt almost every emotion – frustration, disbelief, anxiety, shock, fear, hopelessness. But also acceptance, awe, gratitude, love, joy, compassion, and finally, calm.
When things feel out of control and chaos seems to be swirling around us, it can be so challenging to get to that place of calm.
It’s important to acknowledge our emotions and allow ourselves to feel what we’re feeling, but ultimately, we eventually need to find that place of center and balance in ourselves if we’re going to make it through the rollercoaster of emotion that the current world health crisis is triggering in most of us.
So … how do we find that calm place within ourselves?
Each of us likely has at least a few ways that we do this:
- writing in a journal
- taking a hot bath
I personally really enjoy all of the above, but when I’m really feeling out of alignment, it can be difficult to enjoy even those basic comforts.
But there’s one thing I know I can always turn to, no matter what’s going on in my life, that can help get me back to that place of centered calm… meditation.
Meditation is a focusing of your mind until you reach a place of inner stillness. It should always be done for the self and not with any specific outcome in mind. Take it from me – over time, meditation can completely transform your outlook on life.
Incorporating crystals and crystal incense into your meditation practice can be a deeply rewarding experience.
As we continue to navigate the coming weeks, consider meditating any time you feel overwhelmed or lost in the sea of emotion that we’re all experiencing right now.
The following crystal meditation for calm has been an incredibly helpful part of my practice to stay connected to my place of inner calm, and I invite you to join me by following along. I hope it serves you and those you love as we move further into uncharted territory … let it help you navigate the uncertainties we currently face, as well as those that are still unfolding.
Wishing you and yours good health, safety, and an open heart. Let us support one another (even at a distance!) with kindness, compassion, and love.
