Smartphones and advanced technology have brought about a million benefits into our world, but one major downside is the currentgo-go-gopace of modern life. Most of us have learned the hard way that constant digital connection can lead to a whole lot of emotional and spiritual fatigue. As people step back from their glowing screens and dip their toes into more mindful living, gems have revealed themselves to be wonderful additions to meditation practice.
A gem placed nearby during meditation is thought to help you hone in on the specific energy you want to cultivate during that session. Specific stones are also great tools to keep you laser-focused on your current goals, whatever they may be. For example, if you keep a rose quartz, the quintessential stone of love, in your purse orwater bottle, you’ll remember each time you see it to keep an open heart and compassionate attitude. It’s a great tangible way to bring yourself back to your center and your goals in moments of overwhelm.
