The basics

It’s easy to work with crystals. And it’s fun to have a consciousness that will align with your desires and dreams and add power to your energy. So cool, right? If you’re considering purchasing and working with crystals, there are a few things you should know first mentioned down below.

Crystal Care

Crystals deserve respect. Crystals are consciousness and it is a gift to be a “crystal keeper” (not “owner”).

Don’t put them on the floor without a cloth or pad underneath. Don’t entrust them to people (even housecleaners) who will not respect them. Treat them with care and reverence.
Crystals should be cleaned. Cleaning crystals removes energy that has entered them by accident. Just by being around people feeling self-pity, anger, martyrdom, or other negative emotions, crystals will pick up that emotion. They will also magnify whatever they take on, so it’s critical to clean your crystals regularly.

You can clean crystals a number of ways, with sunlight, moonlight, salt, sage or energetically.

How often you clean your crystals depends on how many people have access to them and what their emotional states are as they do. Definitely clean your crystals before programming them to manifest, when they have been around some negative energy, and ideally whenever you get the intuitive hit to do so.

Clear Your Crystals

Crystals should be cleared. Clearing crystals is simply removing the past programming. Similar to erasing software on your computer to make room for new software, the old instructions you gave to a crystal need to be erased when you have new intentions. You should clear a crystal when you first get it and when you change its programming. The simplest way to clear a crystal is to hold that intention and thought as you clean the crystal. 

How to Program Your Crystal

It’s easy to program a crystal to help you manifest your desires:

Create a space to program your crystal. Set aside some time when you will not be disturbed. Go someplace quiet, play some soft music, light a candle, and focus. What you bring to this process will profoundly affect your results.

Choose what to create. Write or type and print out the intention you want help in manifesting. I suggest using just one intention at a time for each crystal. Choose a crystal to help you create it. There are many types of crystals and all will amplify your energy. Some crystals, such as clear quartz, work great for all types of manifestation. Others, such as rose quartz, work particularly well on issues of the heart, while citrine works well for manifesting money. You can’t go wrong with choosing any crystal to help your manifesting work, but some are more aligned with certain issues than others.

Ask the crystal you’ve chosen if it will assist you. Or, ask your collection of crystals which one wants to help. Either intuit, muscle test, or use a pendulum to determine the answer. Cleanse and clear the crystal. See above.

Connect with the crystal. You’ll be tempted to skip this step. Don’t. It’s an important step that awakens the consciousness of the crystal and forms and/or strengthens your relationship to it. Connecting with a crystal means to get to know it. Hold it. Touch it. Squeeze it. Look at its details and intricacies. Admire it. Allow it to impact you and notice how you feel while in its presence. Hold it up to light and see what parts of it come more alive. Listen with your inner knowing and be open to its communications. Feel grateful for its presence and willingness to help you in this way. Spend 5 to 15 minutes connecting before you move onto the next step.

Imagine the dream. Read your intention. Imagine that desire happening. How will you feel? What will you do? Who will you tell? How will you celebrate? Feel the emotions of receiving that dream come true as fully and intensely as you can. Flow that feeling into the crystal. Imagine energy flowing from your mind and heart into the crystal. See it as sparkling white light, filling the crystal up with your dream. Continue to feel all the emotions that you will feel when you first receive this dream. Ask the crystal to continue to amplify and project the energy of your completed dream into the universe.

Ask it to remind you when you need to focus your energy on this dream. Ask it to assist you in gently bringing beliefs that may need to be changed to the surface. Complete the session. Mentally let the crystal know you are through. Thank it for its help. Feel deep gratitude.

Place the crystal someplace safe with the paper with your intention placed beneath it. Refresh as necessary. You may want to repeat the above steps, or simply hold the crystal when you do techniques to manifest this intention. Release the crystal from this focus. Once your dream has manifested or you have changed your mind about creating it, thank the crystal once again and clean and clear the programming from it, readying it for the next creation.

It’s that easy. And it’s fun as well as powerful.
