Grounding Spirituality
This method helps us ground our spiritual actions and bring the intellectual and physical part of our existence into balance. We sit in a meditating position, place a smoky quartz or a crystal Morion at about 35 cm from our tailbone, with its edge facing it. Place two white quartzes at the same distance, with their edge pointing towards the knees. You can hold a white quartz in your hands or a celestite or even an amethyst. If you feel that your system is in need of stronger grounding, you can replace the white quartz with a smoky quartz.
Grounding Spirituality
Balancing the Chakras
We start with the envisioning; we are visualizing - while we’re inhaling - a white light from the crown centre passing through the channel of Sushumna (spine) and reaching the root chakra, which it activates by projecting a vivid, red, flashing light. While we exhale, the red light takes the reverse path upwards, until it has been incorporated with the white light that emits even more vigorously. In the same way, we continue climbing the chakras successively, always envisioning the corresponding color for each of them. To conclude the series of chakra, having reached the crown, inhale 3 times and feel the cosmic energy enter your body and stimulate your energy status. In the final leg of the meditation, we inhale having already connected with the cosmic energy and we envision it going down at the root center. During the exhaling, we can see the chakra activating from bottom to top and each transmitting their color. Finally, we let ourselves to feel the new vibration of our centers for a few minutes.

Understanding Mineral Energy
This meditation is key if we are to understand the vibrating energy emitted by each mineral, because in addition to the information which we’ll bring together from various texts, it is our personal understanding that will help us strengthen their expression. I am of the mind that mountain meditation must be performed for a month, for each mineral, while keeping notes of the experience of the journey into the life of the mineral.

We sit in the meditating position. We have already chosen the fossil with which we will work for a month. We place it in the left hand (receptive) and cover it with the right (projective). We focus on our breathing for a bit and gradually let ourselves get in tune with the mineral. We envision ourselves meditating inside the mineral surrounded by colour and we let ourselves coordinate with the pulse emitted by this mineral.

When you conclude this meditation, feel your conscience gradually be withdrawn from the mineral and transfer to your breathing, until you feel ready to open your eyes.
Understanding Mineral Energy
Purifying and Strengthening the Mind
We envision a diamond coming out from a sun, which is standing over the crown centre. We feel that the purifying rays emitted through the gem are penetrating and purifying it and the purified rays go through the crown and purge our negative thinking, which we have already seen dissolving under the positive energy radiation. When we feel that we have cleared our mind, we let the gem go back to the sun and we envision another mineral coming through the sun (for stimulation of mind: ruby, for purity of thought: pearl, for a more positive approach to life: emerald). The way the energy minerals will take, will evolve in the same way that we have already worked with the diamond; the only difference is that during the purifying stage, we let ourselves experience the special energy properties of each mineral.
Purifying and Strengthening the Mind
Heart Centre Harmonization
We sit in a meditating position. We place a pink quartz in our hand or, for a stronger effect, we surround ourselves with pink quartzes. We envision a rose in our hearts. We can see its bud open and fill us with colour and aroma. A pink quartz shows itself in the centre of the bud. We feel its structure gradually cover our own, just like an emotional body. We see every wound that exists in the body and feel the energy of the pink quartz pass over them again and again, until it heals them all. When you feel that the emotional body is healed, visualize the pink quartz withdrawing from the rose and standing over your heart centre, stimulating it in spiral cycles, from top to bottom. When you feel your aura’s energy is rejuvenated, watch the pink quartz return to the centre of the rose. We thank the quartz for its cooperation, we envision the rose closing its petals one by one and entering our hearts. We harmonize with our breath and come “back” smoothly.

Heart Meditation
Create a relaxed atmosphere that’s beautiful for you, sit in a comfortable position and hold a pink kunzite between your hands. Just think of your talents, the positive qualities that describe you, the nice words you have heard from friends about you. Connect with your heart and start to breathing. Let yourself be expressed without hesitation. Tell yourself words of love proposals, admiration, support; feel each of them go straight to your heart. The most important thing is, that after each of those kind, you envision the kunzite validate what you say like stamp. The symbol of the stamp I leave to you; it could be a sun, which will revitalise you even more or a phrase like "that’s it" or "amen" or "done". Keep it up for as long as you want. When you are finished, hug yourself and promise to take care.

Drawing Information from the Spiritual Body
We create a crystal triangle from amethysts, one on our tailbone and one on each knee, with the tips pointing toward the earth. Place a pyramid of amethyst in front of us. Allow your gaze travel within the pyramid and when you close your eyes, keep the mineral’s purple colour inside. Through this meditation process, we can ask important questions about the code of our existence in this avatar we live in, or about anything else that we want to take a thorough response about.

Connecting with the Powers of the Earth and the Sky
Envision a large crystal vibrating at the centre of the earth and a second one, of the same size, vibrating in the universe. Then envision your spine become extended, until it’s joined with the edges of the two crystals. Through the spine, which we can imagine as golden, the crystals channel positive energy: we are experiencing an energy that’s more yin from the crystal of the earth; nourishing, relaxing, a reminder of the source of our energy, and by the crystal located in the universe, we are currently experiencing a power that’s more like yang; invigorating, stimulating, male, reminiscent of the manifestation of our energy. We let ourselves unite with these two actions.

Connection with the Higher Self or a Spiritual Master
Create a relaxing atmosphere and make sure you will not be disturbed.

During the first part of this meditation, sit and envision your Higher self or your spiritual teacher in front of you, calling out. Tell him about the problem or the issue you are concerned about, something you have managed properly so far. Ask for your answer according to your needs. Your teacher may need to give you an answer that’s more practical or more spiritual or one that’s related to all of your layers, so that the answer you get is more comprehensive. Remain silent and listen to his response. It is very important to do everything he asks you to. He may require you to eat a sweet because of the subliminal techniques that may represent the acceptance of enjoyment. Repeat the exercise in order to establish the connection and trust with your Higher self. Daily practice will help you, because the time you may need to ensure that you found the solution to your problem through this method might be more than what you initially thought; sometimes we are reluctant to accept any answer that we are not ready to deal with and as a result we delete the "message". Repetition helps us train and help the personality accept the decision of the soul.
