You can meditate with amazonite crystal by using affirmations to ask for what you need; placing several crystals around you to create an energy field; and/or placing amazonite near your heart and throat chakras as you go into a deep state of relaxation.
By the end of this post, you’ll have a simple, step-by-step method to meditate with amazonite and ask for what you need.
Amazonite is the crystal of peace, self-expression, harmony, and manifestation. You can meditate with amazonite whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, small, negative, or out of sorts.
Meditating with crystals is kind of like brushing your teeth: You need to do it regularly for the best results.
This is why I recommend meditating with amazonite or any crystal once or twice a week. Regular meditations help you keep an open connection with yourself and your crystals, and it maintains a balance in your life so things don’t have a chance to get out of control.
Don’t wait until you really need to meditate before dusting off your crystals and giving it a bash. Though you can meditate as often as you want, and definitely should do it when you feel you need it.
Before meditating with amazonite, be sure to cleanse and charge it to remove old energy and tap into “clean” and powerful new energy.
How to meditate with amazonite
Below is a simple, calming amazonite meditation. Feel free to use this method or adapt it to what feels good to you. Let your intuition guide you and you’ll know what to do.
Set your intention
Start by setting your intention for the meditation. What do you need most from the amazonite right now?
Here are some things you can ask an amazonite crystal to bring you:
- Feelings of calm and tranquility
- Soothing stress relief
- Inner harmony and joy
- Emotional healing
- Better communication skills
- Spiritual growth
- Self-expression and self-empowerment
- Setting boundaries
- Deeper and more restful sleep
Once you’ve set an intention and you know what you want to work on, come up with an affirmation or two that you can use during your meditation and during the day when you’re out and about.
Closely examine the crystal
Take a good look at the amazonite while holding it up in the air and turning it around.
Try to get your senses involved with the crystal, to form an active connection with it for the meditation (you’ll see how we make our final connection with the crystal in a little bit).
In fact, this step is part of the meditation because you’ll start forgetting about the rest of the world and bring your attention to the present moment. Be fully involved in this step and try to enjoy the bond that’s forming with your crystal.
Notice the colors, shape, patterns, and anything else unique about your crystal.
Feel the entire crystal with your hands, and smell it.
This is an important step in the meditation, even if you always use the same crystal. Please don’t skip it unless you really have to.
Get comfortable and place the crystal near your heart and throat chakras
Lie down somewhere comfortable, where you won’t be interrupted. Wear warm clothes and cover yourself with a blanket if the air is chilly.
Amazonite is an important crystal for the following chakras:
- The heart chakra: When used to activate the heart chakra in meditation, amazonite brings feelings of self-love, forgiveness, and empathy. The crystal supports the healing of emotional wounds, encourages happier relationships, and brings a sense of inner peace.
- The throat chakra: When working with the throat chakra, amazonite helps you communicate clearly and honestly, with yourself and others. The crystal also encourages you to speak your truth, express your ideas, and find the courage to speak up when you need to.
Put the amazonite on the floor close to your throat or heart chakra, depending on which chakra you want to activate.
Your throat chakra is in the front center of your neck by your throat, just above your collarbone. Your heart chakra is in the center of your chest, in line with your heart.
If you have several amazonite crystals and want to create an energy field around yourself to amplify the crystals’ energies, simply place a crystal above, below, and on each side of you when you lie down to meditate. Feel free to use different crystals for this grid – they don’t all need to be amazonite to work.
Take three deep breaths
Now close your eyes and relax your body. Put your hands next to your body or place one on top of the other on your stomach.
Take three deep, slow breaths, counting in for five and out for five. I like to breathe in through my nose and out with my mouth.
Try lifting and filling your tummy with air when you breathe in. This is called “belly breathing.” This method helps you take in deeper breaths and a lot more revitalizing oxygen than regular shallow breathing.
See the amazonite in your mind’s eye
Picture the amazonite in your mind.
Try to see it as clearly as you can floating gently in the space in front of your face. Remember the shape, feel, colors, markings, smell, and anything else you can about the crystal.
The purpose of this exercise is to open your connection and communication with the crystal, and to forget about everything around you and any worries you might have.
It also prepares the crystal to hear what you want to ask for.
True connection with a crystal often takes time and practice, so don’t give up if you struggle the first few times to see it when you close your eyes.
The more often you try to connect with your crystal, the easier it becomes to recognize an “active connection.”
An active connection with amazonite gives some people a feeling of warmth and light shining around the upper half of their body, especially around their chest and neck where their heart and throat chakras sit.
But you could feel the connection in another way. Pay attention to how your body reacts and tells you that it is making this connection, so you recognize it when it happens.
Tell the amazonite what you seek
Once you feel connected with the amazonite, or as connected as you can be at this time, ask the crystal to bring you what you need.
You can ask silently in your mind or speak it out loud as an affirmation or open dialogue (just talking as things come up for you).
If you’re using an affirmation, repeat it at least three times, and be very clear and specific about what you do want: Always ask a crystal to bring something rather than take something away.
For example, don’t ask for unhappiness to disappear. Ask for a calm and peaceful heart. Or use one of my affirmations for peace, such as “Peace flows through me.”
You can also use phrases like “I am grounded,” “I stay centered,” or any other affirmations that resonate with you.
Ask as many times as you need to, but ask only for one thing per meditation. If you ask for more gifts, you are diluting the request and probably won’t get the results you want.
Let your intuition guide you and stop when you feel you’ve asked enough times.
Thank the amazonite
There is power in gratitude. Giving thanks to your amazonite strengthens its powers to help you, making this a wonderful bond and friendship.
To show appreciation, whisper the words “Thank you” and feel true and absolute gratitude with your entire body.
Stay in this bubble of quiet thankfulness until you’re ready to wake up from it.
Now slowly open your eyes and rise.
Keep your amazonite in the right place
If you want to intensify the properties of your amazonite and your meditations, keep the crystal in a place that serves what you ask from it.
For example, if you’re asking for better sleep, keep amazonite in your bedroom, close to the bed.
Here’s a list of all the places to keep your amazonite and what each location brings you (there are probably a few places you’ve never thought of before!)
