In a recent psychic reading, the client had just visited a psychic fayre, with no intention whatsoever to purchase any more crystals for her collection. She did browse one counter with its beautiful arrangement of crystals. As much as she kept walking away from that particular display, she felt one particular smoky quartz calling her back! So yes, she bought it. Her question to me was how she could best go about programming her new purchase.
Although crystals given as gifts are said to be more powerful, it is my belief that there are also times that a crystal will call out to us, because it has a certain role to play in our lives at a given time. A quartz crystal given as a gift will often be given with loving intention, which is empowering in itself. I have spoken to students who are convinced that they feel at their academic best when wearing a quartz-crystal given to them by a loved one, not to mention the sense of safety and self-confidence a cherished crystal tends to instill in us.
Energy work is priceless. It makes every day extraordinary and transforms the mundane to the holy ~ Silvia Hartmann
A crystal can be particularly conductive when held, worn or focused upon while we visualize our future goals, say affirmations, or doing healing work. Its hypnotic effects when used as a pendulum are also well-documented.
Many years ago, I attended a guided meditation group. As each of us entered our hostess’s home, we would choose a crystal to hold during the meditation session. In hindsight, those were incredibly powerful guided sessions, after which we would share our experiences.
Our hostess had the most stunning collection of crystals, which she had accumulated from all over the world, and she was adamant that crystals had a consciousness of their very own. She seemed to fully understand when some of us told her how we had experienced a crystal ‘suddenly vanishing’, either never to be seen again, or mysteriously appearing again after a considerable amount of time. She explained how one can show up when needed and disappear once its work is finished. She encouraged us to view our crystals as trusted friends and helpers. She also felt that a spontaneous appearance of a crystal can be significant of angelic presence in a time of need. She would also often remind us that we, never really own a crystal – it belongs to the Universe.
Try stroking your crystal as you affirm any particular intention you have. For example, should you be craving sugar and sweet treats, you can affirm, “By stroking this crystal, I am instantly in control of my desire for sweets.” You can do the same with tobacco or alcohol cravings. See the crystal as symbolizing your healthy body, and its organs becoming positively affected by a habit you wish to kick.
When we recognize and appreciate a crystal as more than just an object, our positive regard acts as an energizing force, and enhances its power. Programming one’s crystal can be used to achieve health and fitness, as well as a positive mental state, and in helping boost the body’s immune system. Crystals of all colors can be used for this, but I learned that a clear crystal is most receptive to programming.
I was surprised to learn years ago, that many crystals actually require unloading, because they will have retained certain energy from previous programming. Basically, ‘unloading’ means cleansing.
We all have energy and when our energy aligns with what we are intending, we receive it ~ Sadeqa Johnson
If the crystal is new to you, take time to observe its shape and any special characteristics, like its weight, shape, or the way it catches the light. Then, hold your crystal in the palm of either hand, and note if you feel any sensation or vibration from your crystal. As you continue to hold the crystal in the palm of your hand, envision your inner core generating very powerful energy, sensing as you do so, that this powerful energy is being calibrated with that of your crystal.
To cleanse my crystals, I stroke them whilst running cold water over them for a minute or so, and let them dry naturally, or on a white cloth. Sometimes, I place them overnight on a window-ledge in the moonlight.
To program your crystal, focus on your goals. Say positive affirmations as you hold your crystal. Acknowledge your crystal as being your partner in any endeavor which you undertake, and any goals you are working towards manifesting.
Together we are achieving these goals.
Size permitting, you might keep your crystal close to you or wear it in the form of jewelry, or keep it in your pocket. Even if you are unable to do so, the crystal will continue to be activated with empowering functions.
