How to use your crystal advent calendar

Using a crystal advent calendar for mindfulness and meditation can be a transformative experience. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your advent calendar with crystals:

1. Set up a sacred space

Before you start your crystal advent calendar journey, create a calming space in your home where you can retreat daily. This space should be free from distractions and filled with things that bring you peace. A comfortable cushion, soft lighting, and perhaps some incense can set the perfect atmosphere for your meditation practice.

2. Start your day with intention

Each morning, as you open a new window on your crystal advent calendar, take a few moments to set an intention for the day. Hold the crystal in your hand and focus on its unique properties. If you’re unsure about the properties of the crystal, a quick search online can provide you with the necessary information.

3. Incorporate affirmations

Many crystal advent calendars come with affirmation cards. These are positive statements designed to challenge and overcome negative thoughts. Pairing your crystal with a daily affirmation can amplify the benefits of both. For example, if you receive a rose quartz, you might use the affirmation: “I am surrounded by love and positivity.”

4. Meditate with your crystals

Find a comfortable seated position, close your eyes, and hold the crystal in your hand. Focus on your breath and allow the crystal’s energy to flow through you. Visualise the crystal’s color and imagine its energy enveloping you. This simple practice can help you connect with the crystal’s properties and deepen your meditation.

5. Journal your experiences

Keep a journal to document your daily experiences with your crystal advent calendar. Note down which crystal you received, the affirmation you used, and how you felt during your meditation. Over time, you may notice patterns and shifts in your mood and energy levels.

6. Share the experience

Consider sharing your crystal advent calendar journey with a friend or loved one. It can be a wonderful bonding experience, and you can support each other in your mindfulness practices. Additionally, sharing your experiences on social media can inspire others to embark on their mindfulness journey.
