Exploring Crystals and Gemstones for Healing

Crystals and Gemstones for Healing: different types of crystals

The utilization of crystals in magic formulas can be traced back to the Ancient Sumerians during the 4th millennium BC. And even in traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been around for at least 5000 years, they’ve been using crystals for healing.

What is the proper way to meditate? The easy way!

When it comes to the medicine for the mind, personally, I think nothing beats meditation. Similarly, in the context of manifestation, the number one barrier standing between you and your manifestation isn’t that you don’t want it enough or that circumstances are too extreme. It’s mostly because you can’t maintain your vibration at a high level, and your mind is too occupied by negative thoughts and a bad mood. Meditation is the easiest, fastest, and most sustainable way to balance your mind, keep it free from troubling thoughts and emotions, and pave the way for your manifestations to come to fruition. 

In this post, I want to outline the proper and easy ways for you to begin incorporating meditation into your life. I’ll list different beginner-friendly meditation practices for you to try out and discover what suits you best. 

So let’s get started and answer the question, “What is the proper way to meditate?”
