Meditation is another effective use for these gemstones. If you’re looking to benefit from this combination through meditation, here are some pointers,

First, make sure your intention is clear – what are you using these stones for? If you don’t quite know yet, set your intention to see how these stones make you feel. Then, hold one stone in each hand and get comfortable. You could place your hands on your knees, or the hand with sunstone on your solar plexus (right below the navel), and the hand with moonstone further up near the crown of your head.

Personally, I like to start my meditation by taking a few deep breaths, breathing in for 5 seconds, holding for 3, and breathing out for 7. It helps your brain to focus on your breathing and stops racing thoughts.

When you’re ready, focus on the stones and how they make you feel, or think about your intention. If you want, you can listen to music or a guided meditation, as this helps you not get distracted. I’ll leave a guided meditation that helps you with emotional balance below:
