At Little Box of Rocks, we believe that connecting with a crystal is sort of like calling up a really good friend when you need to work through a problem. They have the ability to center us, pointing us back to our higher selves, and the issues that really matter. Meditation is one of the very best ways we can connect with our gems. It is through meditation that we can align ourselves with their comforting, non-resistant energy.
