How to program your crystals

Crystals get their power once they're "programmed," or dedicated to a specific purpose of your choosing. The best time to do this is directly after you've cleared your stone. I've tried programming my crystals with intentions a few different ways but found the following the most effective:

  1. Hold the crystal in your hand. (Your left hand, preferably, since your left side is your receiving side.)
  2. Stand in natural light, either outside or next to a window.
  3. Say aloud or in your head, "I dedicate this crystal to the highest good. I ask that it be used in love and light."
  4. Then, program the crystal for a specific use. Think about what you want that crystal to support you with, whether it's landing a new job or speaking more kindly to yourself. While still holding the stone in your left hand, visualize and feel into what it would be like if you were to achieve that intention.
  5. Once you've envisioned the crystal's purpose, finish the process by saying aloud: "I dedicate this crystal for the [your purpose]."
  6. This is optional, but I also like to wear my stones on me for seven days to further connect with them. Personally, I find this is the best way to energise them.
