Maybe you found crystals that are designed to bring good fortune.
Perhaps you’re looking for a crystal to protect your energy and help you stand your ground.
If you’re like me, you searched out crystals to heal from a broken heart.
While I am over the moon excited for your interest in crystals, just like any other possession you own, you need to respect the integrity of the crystal.
I have heard of so many people who have purchased crystals, just to have them build up with 2 months of dust.
You may discard your crystal for a variety of reasons:
little to no results
confusion on how they work
forgetting to cleanse them, and now fueling the energy of whoever touched it before you
not programming the crystal before use
Why do some people swear by crystals and others see no difference in their area of need?
For ONE reason…
The ones who don’t see desired results forget the crucial step in crystal care:
Program Crystals before using!
There are 4 steps it takes in order to harness the powers of your precious crystals.
Buying your Crystal
Now the REAL first step in using your crystals effectively is by BUYING your first Crystal!
When buying a crystal it is important to focus less on the powers the crystal is said to have and instead pick the one that calls out to you!
My favourite place to purchase crystals is The Mystic Moon. There is such a wide variety, and I am able to see them and without knowing what their healing properties are, I can pick one out!
Like a whisper in the wind, the crystal that is subconsciously NEEDED in your life right now will attract you to it!
Usually, the messages or whispers are coming to you through your spirit guides, so be sure to practice open communication between you two!
When I went out to buy my first crystal I went searching for prosperity and wealth and left with a crystal that would clear my Solar Plexus Chakra.
This, in turn, helped my confidence in myself and results in financial prosperity.
LET THE CRYSTAL CHOOSE YOU!
Cleanse your Crystal
If you think about any clothing store, MANY people walk through it, try items on, or return worn items.
You’re always advised to wash the purchased clothes before wearing them because other bodies have touched, bought, or worn those clothes before you.
Think of crystals in the same way.
People touch, feel, transfer energy between them and the crystal without your prior knowledge.
This can cause mistaken intentions and programming for your crystals that do not serve you and therefore can cause your crystals not to work in your favour.
For this reason, you need to cleanse them before using them
Check out my blog post about 4 Ways to Cleanse Your Crystals!
By cleansing your crystal you clear others energy and allow yourself and the crystal to exchange energy.
When you are ready to program crystals, you allow the crystals healing powers to work effectively.
Think hard about the real reason why you went to purchase a crystal in the first place.
After the crystal has chosen you, then look up the power of that crystal.
You will be surprised to see the meanings or healing properties of that crystal resonate with you.
My advice is to program your crystal AFTER meditation.
Meditation allows you to clear your mind, center your own energy, and find clarity in your intentions for the crystal.
There are many benefits of meditation that go far deeper than crystal programming.
It is for this reason that adding meditation into your daily practice is advised for accelerated spiritual growth.
If you’re looking at adding meditation into your daily routine but have failed in past attempts, I STRONGLY advise you sign up for the Live&Dare Beginners Meditation Course!
You will not find any better place to start meditation!
It is where I began my journey, and I am so grateful to have had that experience and guidance!
Once your mind is cleared and focused, set your intentions for your crystal by placing it in your dominant hand or placing the crystal up to your Third Eye Chakra (between the eyes).
Start with the phrase:
“My intention for this crystal is…(fill in the blank)”
Focus on key words revolving around your desired intention.
Whether it be:
“Open and ready to receive love”
“Healthy and healed”
“Confidence and self-love”
Whatever your intention may be, really feel the energy and desire within yourself and imagine it being physically propelled into the crystal in your hand.
A visualization trick I like to use is to imagine the crystal being surrounded by white light, and feeling it heat up in my hand as the energy is being given off by the crystal!
The more often you do this intention routine the more connected to the crystal you will be to the point where you may even feel a tingling in the palm of your hand as you feel the energy exchange.
Repeat the desired mantra until you feel confident in it and that the crystal has picked up on it.
I usually say it about 5-10 times.
After that, your crystal has been programmed to help with you such affirmations that you either spoke or thought of while holding the crystal
Use the Crystal
There are many ways you can use crystals after they have been programmed
Carry the crystal with you
Place it somewhere in your house
Wear it as jewelry
Turn it into an Exilir
Just as long as the crystal is placed in plain sight in order to harness its energy.
A great place to start when purchasing crystals is either
It’s as simple as that
There are MANY benefits of crystals in being able to help change your mindset.
What will you harness your crystals for?
Grateful for Today,
