How To Program Crystals

Why do You Need to Program Your Crystals?

For your crystals to work and give you the most healing benefits, you need to know how to program crystals.

You need to ask your crystals to perform their functions and help you in making your intentions manifest in your reality.

The purpose of programming a crystal is to focus its energies on a specific goal, intention, or desire.

A programmed crystal becomes more powerful, useful, and effective.

If you don’t program your crystals, it’s like taking your boat out to sea and shouting to the waves to just take you anywhere!

That’s exactly where you’ll end up and what you’ll get. You will end up anywhere with just about anything as a result.

Specify exactly what you want your crystals to do for you and you will be pleasantly surprised by the results!

Tips on How to Program Crystals

Programming a crystal is very quick and simple. You don’t need to be an experienced crystal healer or seer to do it because anyone can!

You must know how to program crystals whenever you buy or bring home a new crystal.

To do this, hold the crystal in your hand and quiet your mind.

Dedicate its energies and your intentions to the highest good, and then state your goals, desires, and intentions clearly and specifically so that your crystals will know exactly what to do for you!

When you program your crystal, you’re sharing your thoughts and emotions about anything that you need help with.

It gives your crystals a laser-like focus that will support you whenever, wherever, and however they can.

Programming is ideal when you need to be very specific about using a particular crystal.

It can be because you want to carry the crystal with you for a long time, wear it as crystal healing jewelry, or use it in creating a crystal grid.

But these are all goals for the long term. You don’t need to program your crystals when you’ll only be using it for a few minutes or a day at the most.

If you want to benefit from the metaphysical healing properties of your crystals, or if you have chosen them based on your instincts, there’s also no need to program them.

But you should also keep in mind that your intentions and desires should follow the crystal’s natural properties.

You are harnessing the crystal’s energies and not adding or putting in what is not there.

Multipurpose crystals like Quartz can be programmed for anything, though. You can program it for protection, love, healing, or attracting abundance.

The Benefits of Programing a Crystal

Programing your crystals is a great way to build a strong relationship with them.

When you do, you see more results that you like and attract more positive energies, even if you’re not actively using the crystals.

But this does not mean that you have to program your crystals for them to be effective.

You can work passively with them even without programming, charging, or empowering them.

The only difference is that their healing energies will be more random and scattered compared to the focused and specific energies of programmed crystals.

When you know how to program a crystal, you will not be limiting what it can do for you!

Easy and Practical Steps on How to Program Crystals

First, you need to do your own research and pick a crystal that resonates with your intentions, desires, and goals.

There are crystals that are already programmed naturally, like Quartz, and you just need to match your intentions with the right crystals.

When exploring how to activate crystals, try not to feel too daunted by the sheer variety of stones and crystals out there. Remember, they’re all aligned with your best interests in one way or another.

When choosing your perfect crystal, try to listen to your intuition rather than your rational mind. It’ll seldom steer you wrong.

Don’t think you need a massive budget to pursue this idea either – many crystals and gemstones are far more affordable then you may realize, especially if you go for the more natural, less processed and less decorative look.

There’s no harm in doing this, as so many crystals are already so naturally beautiful!

Find a quiet and comfortable place in your home that will serve as your sacred space.

Get into a clear, light, and relaxed state of body and mind by taking several deep breaths.

You can play soft meditation music while doing this so that you can easily enter a relaxed and meditative state.

Write your intention down on a piece of paper that you can refer to anytime.

You can write any desire or intention, like ‘I will work together with this crystal to achieve peace and relaxation even during the most stressful days’, or ‘I will work with this crystal to stay motivated and remain focused on my goals’.

Use your senses to visualize yourself turning this intention into reality.

Next, place your crystal over your heart as you send these feelings out to the universe with gratitude; gratitude that your intention is already set up and coming to fruition.

The wheels of manifestation are already rolling, so you should feel the joy of this gift and let it flow from your heart into your crystal.

Take a deep breath when you’re all done, and don’t forget to say a heartfelt thank you!

My Final Thoughts About How to Program Crystals

When you ask your crystals for help or assistance, you should also establish a good relationship with them by treating them like they are living entities.

Crystals possess their own consciousness and intelligence, so ask them to be your guides in the world of intentions and manifestations.

Matter and thoughts are made up of energy particles. The only difference is that matter has a lower vibration and density compared to your thoughts.

Your energy patterns also have the tendency to be chaotic and erratic. You just jump from one idea to another without thinking about order.

Crystals radiate energies in a more continual and consistent manner.

This is why you find yourself attracted to crystals at all. Their energies can help harmonize your own.

Placing a few suitable crystals in your space can create an atmosphere of serenity, calm, and peace.

Crystals possess the properties of powerful mental and astral patterns and intentions that you program them with.

Once you have programmed your crystals, they will radiate the energies of your intentions, as long as you don’t do anything to reprogram them and redirect their purpose.

Your programmed crystals will know what they’re supposed to do. They will function according to the functions that you have put in them.

Remember that the most important part in programming your crystals is transferring your intentions to them.

Approach your crystals as if you were speaking to a living and conscious entity of extraordinary vibration and purity.

The pattern that you would like to program your crystals with should always reflect your highest spiritual tendencies of your inner being.

Anything less than that, including your material desires and desires that involve the people in your life, should be avoided because it can have a different outcome from what you’re expecting.
