This is a good article. Meditating, to me, is very personal. I touch my feminity in a deeply and intrinsically way. The important thing here is my feminity, my life as a woman. It took me a long time to trust my worth as a woman.
When I began reading your work I froze. You used the patriarchal term “inform”; a term used from above looking down on those we tell.
Each of us needs to interpret our own gifts of meditating with crystals guided by someone with knowledge of the crystal. No one can “inform” us what to feel when we are meditating. We receive the gift thru the lense of the crystal which is right beside us.
