Programming your crystals

Crystals can be programmed with intentions, and this strengthens our ability to manifest those intentions. Programming is the process of instructing the crystal to use it’s qualities of transformation, stability and attunement. The act of holding a crystal and intending to use it for a specific purpose is the simplest form of programming. Ask for guidance, protection and assistance in this process. Holding each crystal, close your eyes and thank the crystal for helping you. Take three deep breaths and speak your intention out loud, then silently in your mind while you meditate on your intention. Close your ritual with a blessing to Mother Earth and gratitude to the crystals for helping you stay focused on love, peace & happiness, for the greatest good of all.As humans, we are energetic bodies made of vibration. Sound is also vibration and thus has the ability to enter all the layers of our being including the physical, mental, and energetic. Sound can balance and harmonize these layers to create the optimal conditions for health and wellbeing.

Working with crystals

Because crystals grow according to a blueprint pattern in their lattice structure, similar to DNA, that they are said to be alive on some level. It’s the impurities in the lattice that give them their unique colors and shapes and different properties for healing. Each crystal is a unique being that we can develop a relationship with. We can communicate with them. When we work with crystals, they emit a vibration which amplifies the power of our thoughts and intentions. At the atomic level, every atom of the crystal is vibrating. When we use them for healing, we’re sending a form of life force energy and conscious intent through them. The crystal takes that energy in and then does something with it. It may refract it or amplify it. Crystals are the energy of Mother Gaia - manifestation, homeostasis and stability, grounding and connection to the earth. When a person is in emotional trauma or shock, the crystals are gentle and help them heal and settle in and ground from the shock.
