Programming

Programming is putting intention into a crystal’s energy for the purpose you are using it for.

  1. Make yourself comfortable somewhere where you won’t be interrupted.
  2. Place your crystal in your left (receiving) hand and cover it with your right (giving) hand then, close your eyes. Picture_20190515_135822414.jpg
  3. Visualize universal white light energy coming down into your crown chakra (top of your head).
  4. See and feel the energy move through your third eye (between your eyebrows), down through to your throat chakra (back of your neck) and extending across through each of your shoulders, down your arms and out of your hands and into the stones.
  5. Visualize the stones glowing with that white light and visualize your intention. This can be visualizing the word(s), or the desired outcome.
  6. See the light surround your crystal(s) and soak them with the energy of your intention(s). Hold this image until the light begins to receded or fade to a soft flickering glow.
  7. Open your eyes and know your intention has been set.

This will charge and program your crystals for your intention or desired work. You can place your stone(s) into a pouch and carry it with you, get a macrame or metal cage type necklace holder to wear it, or you can just have the stones nearby you while working on your set goal.

 

 

 

 

For longer range intentions, keeping your crystal(s) close (wearing them/carrying them with you) will help to remind you of your goal/intention as you work towards the desired outcome. This will help you maintain your focus.

10 Energizing Crystals

I wanted to share some simple crystals with you for times you may be feeling in a slump, tired for no reason, or lacking motivation. Phases we all go through. And then I realized why I was compelled to do a quick blog post about this. We just moved into Saturn Retrograde 2019. It started on April 29th and won’t end till September 18th. Now I’m in no way an expert on astrology, I’ve only just recently started dabbling into it. But I do know that people who were born during a Saturn retrograde will be really affected during this time.

*”Natal Saturn retrograde could show as sadness, depression, loneliness, tiredness or lack of motivation. Disrespect of parents and authority figures may be holding you back. Whatever is stunting your productiveness is what Saturn retrograde focuses on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Saturn retrograde phases, until you master it.”  

So listen up Saturn retrograde babies and anyone else who’s feeling the effects during this next several months. Surround yourself with things that motivate and energize you.
Don’t want to exercise? Find a new playlist to inspire you!
Having trouble shaking off the grogginess in the morning? Try some a.m. yoga!
Writers block? Pick up your laptop and head outside for some new energy!
You get what I mean. Don’t let retrograde get you!

And pick up a few of these while you’re at it. They’re pretty, and they’re compact so they can go anywhere with you and they will give some much needed positive and motivational energy ! I don’t usually shop online for crystals and minerals (I like to feel their energy). **So find a little metaphysical shop in your neighborhood and go explore and see what “feels” right to you!

Happy Rockhounding!

*Excerpt from: Astrology King (head on over there for more on the current retrograde!
** I highly recommend you only shop for crystals at shop that has an established business (been around a bit). Shopping for crystals at places like Home Goods you will often find fake crystals that were created as simple decoration, which is why they are sold in a store like Home Goods.
