Meditation is a practice that has been around for centuries and has been shown to have a wide range of benefits for both physical and mental health. One way to enhance your meditation practice is by using a meditation stone.
Meditation stones help you to focus, relax and connect with your inner self and balance your chakras. You can choose one that resonates with your individual needs each and every day.
If you’re new to meditation, using a meditation stone can be a helpful way to get started. The stone can provide a focus point for your attention and can help to ground you and connect you to the present moment. As you become more experienced with meditation, you may find that you no longer need to use a stone, but it can still be a helpful tool for times when you need extra support or a reminder to be more mindful each time that you see it.
Benefits Of Using A Meditation Stone
- Meditation stones can help you to focus your attention and concentration, this can be helpful if you find that your mind wanders easily during meditation.
- Meditation stones can promote relaxation and reduce stress which can be helpful if you find that meditation makes you feel anxious or agitated.

If you’re interested in trying meditation with a stone, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, choose a stone that resonates with you and your needs. You can do this by reading about the properties of different stones or by simply holding them and seeing how they make you feel.
Try to find a comfortable place to sit or lie down and hold the stone in your hands. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. As you breathe in and out allow the stone to draw your attention inward. Relax and enjoy the experience. There is no right or wrong way to meditate with a stone, so just let yourself go and see where your meditation takes you.
My children and I spent a sunny spring afternoon in the garden painting stones in each of the colours of the seven chakras. We used a metallic pen to draw on the details of each chakra and have placed them on a meditation log that we have where we can come to sit in nature, holding a stone to meditate and reflect whenever necessary. You could also paint your favourite landscape, rainbows, stars, words and messages onto your stones to bring you peace, light and positivity throughout your day.
Whether you use a stone as a way to get started with meditation or are an experienced meditator looking to deepen your practice, the next time that you sit down to meditate, why not focus on one chakra at a time; you may be surprised at how helpful it can be.
