There are many different types of crystals and gemstones that can be used for japa meditation. Each type of crystal has its own unique energy properties that can help to amplify the effects of your mantra. When choosing a crystal or gemstone for your japa meditation, it is important to consider what intention you would like to set.
You can choose any mantra for any mala you have. However, you might as well take advantage of the energy properties emanating from the healing crystals and gemstones your malas are made out of. Each type of crystal has intentions they are attuned with. Ask The Mala Tree for advice on these properties. When done right, the crystal’s energy property will synchronize with the mantra, making it more effective in turn.
When you are choosing a crystal or gemstone for your japa meditation, it is important to listen to your intuition. Go with the stone that calls out to you. The one that you are drawn to is the one that will be most effective for you.
