How to Program a crystal

 What does it mean to program a crystal?

Programming a crystal is somewhat like a computer program. You have a computer program to do a certain task. A crystal program would be the same. Consider what you want this crystal to do. Here are some ideas:

  • Meditation aid
  • Crystal healing
  • Psychic awareness
  • Protection
  • Good luck charm
  • Empower other crystals
  • Crystal reading – crystal divination
  • Ritual or ceremonial use
  • To create sacred items like jewelry or décor
  • Energy to be used to plants
  • Crystallizing drinking water
  • Making gem elixirs
  • Ritual oils

Prepare to Program a crystal

Before you program the crystal is to purify the crystal. There are several ways to do this.

  • Light some sage or incense and hold the crystal in the smoke which will cleanse away any previous programming or negative energy.
  • Place the crystal in sea salt or salt water over night
  • Place your crystal in a stream of running water where it won’t be washed downstream and lost. Take care to place it where someone won’t find it and that you will remember where it was placed.

Ask you angels or guides to clear away all energies in the crystal so that it is open and ready to receive a new program. Ask that it be blessed that it become a tool for the greater good of all and that it only work in the highest of energy vibrations.

How to Program a crystal:

  1. Contemplate what you want the crystal to do. Envision that in your mind’s eye.
  2. Hold the crystal in the hand you do not write with (receptive hand). Lay your other hand (projective hand) on top.
  3. Breath in very deeply through your nose pulling air into the very bottom of your lungs till they are totally filled up.
  4. As you take this first, clean, fresh air from the universe, see it in your mind’s eye, going into your lungs and into your blood and right down to the cells. Purifying your body and energizing it.
  5. Pause for a count of 5
  6. Exhale slowly through the mouth, expelling all of the air from your lungs and onto your hands.
  7. As you are exhaling, envision this breath as energy flowing from your chest/ heart chakra and up and into your projective arm down towards the crystal…
  8. See your energy flow from your projective hand and into the crystal. See your desire for this crystal making a connection with the crystal.. you may see little sparkles from the crystal as if thinks are shifting to accept the new program.
  9. Exhale totally till your lungs feel like a vacuum.
  10. Now inhale deeply and pull your energy through the crystal combined with some of the crystal energy.
  11. Pull this energy down through your receptive hand.
  12. Envision your energy blending with the crystal energy in your body.
  13. Pull that energy as you inhale deeply like the first time, through the nose into your heart chakra.
  14. Hold 5 seconds
  15.  Repeat the entire process until you can feel the spiritual connection between you and the crystal. Now your crystal is programmed and attuned to your energy.
  16. You are done when it feels right.
  17. Thank your angels and guides for the help.

Citrine

Citrine is a beautiful variety of quartz crystal which ranges from yellow to a deep amber color. Often you will see rainbow within the crystal.

Citrine is special in that it does not accumulate negative energy. It can be used to disperse or transmute negative energy into positive.

Citrine is known as the “merchant’s stone” because it is believed to attract wealth and prosperity. It doesn’t just help attract money, it also helps one maintain it. A good way to use citrine for this purpose is to place the crystal form in your cash register or area where you handle your finances (probably your computer room if at home). I also recommend burying 4 citrine points pointing towards your home or place of business… one from each direction. As you do this, meditate on each crystal before placing it in the ground envisioning the desire for prosperity going out into the universe and drawing it into your life.

Citrine can be used to open and activate the solar plexus chakra. This chakra deals with personal power “ chi “, decisiveness, creativity, clarification, intellect, mental focus and strength. Citrine enhances intuition and bridges a connection with higher intelligence. Citrine encourages light-heartedness, happiness and optimism. It may help alleviate fear and assist in elevating one’s self-esteem. Citrine can be used for clearing the aura and aligning the auric body with the physical body.

Citrine is an excellent choice for jewelry as it is inexpensive and readily available. It can be used for any kind of spiritual work including chakra clearing and balancing. Citrine works well in a gemstone elixir. You can find directions on this blog. Citrine makes a great choice for a pendulum.
