Sometimes a stone or crystal you are strongly drawn to doesn't feel right when you hold it. This could
mean that it needs to be cleansed and cleared. Newly purchased crystals often can use a clearing as soon as you get them home. When visitors come and stay over in a room with crystals, they
should be cleared after. If you have you have a negative event happen or hear of a personally connecting negative event in a room with crystals, they should be cleared. It is very
important you do this before any healing with a crystal takes place as well as after a healing. A cleared, crystal feels positive, tingly in the hand and cold to the touch. A crystal that
burdened may feel hot, heavy or sticky.
There are a number of ways to clear crystals.
- SMUDGING - A quick way to
cleanse is to smudge the crystals with burning cedar or sage. Simply hold the burning sage or cedar stick while passing your stone through the smoke.
- MOONLIGHT- Place outside or on a
window ledge for the Full moon and/or the New Moon. Crystals need to be placed out at dusk and removed just before the sun rises.
- HERBS - Burying your crystal
in a cupful of rose petals, sage, frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood for 24 hours will clear them.
- Sea Salt – place the crystal in a glass bowl and cover in sea salt for 24 -72hours. This glass bowl should
be placed in a dark area.You can also use a ziplock bag. Also be sure to discard your salt after each cleaning.
- The Sacred Breath - Use your breath to 'blow
away' any negativity from the stone, simply hold the stone in your hand and blow on it, while blowing ask your higher self to cleanse the crystal.
- If you are in a hurry and
they are water soluble, run them under cool tap water. Make sure the points are facing down the drain to run the negative energy down the sink, NEVER USE WARM OR HOT WATER, THIS WILL

The purpose of programming a crystal is to focus its abilities on something you specifically need,
thereby magnifying the stone's intent through your own. The purpose of dedicating the stone to a high level healing energy is to protect it from negative energy. A crystal that
is programmed and dedicated in any of these ways becomes much more powerful and useful as a tool. Although a crystal is inanimate, they are still living things and do have a life-force energy in the
centre of their matrix.
Here are a quick and easy ways to program your crystal.
- Healing - Decide on the intention of the crystal and its placement purpose. Place hands on crystal
and mentally connect with its energies and giving the crystal your clear intentions for it and its duties in while under your possession. Whether it is for healing different illnesses or one in
particular, let it know. Take a moment with the crystal to ensure that all is complete and well. (Be sure you have good intentions and are of pure heart)
- Personal Use - Picture the crystal in your mind as being huge. On the side of it is a door. Open it, go inside
and look around. You will see colours, matrix lines, energy pulses and your body will tingle as you connect with the crystal. Hold your arms out, palms upwards and visualise light coming from them.
The light may start as white, but it may change colour of its own accord. Let it happen. Ask the crystal to help with what you need it for. When the light from you palms stop, thank the crystal, come
out of the door and close it.
- Property Use - Wrap crystal in black
cloth material, on a piece of paper write out what the property needs are from the crystal (note: several crystals may be done at once in this process, if they fit in the material completely
covered). Please refer to crystals guides for exact attributes of the crystals you have to use and which you will be focusing on directly. As most properties and facilities have
high traffic volume you will want to make a beginning statement similar to, “These/This crystals I surround in pure black material are intended to aid in the function of the property and its’
That crystal is now programmed and ready to work. Once a crystal is programmed, it will hold its intent until you reprogram it.
Protect your Intentions
To prevent any negative energy from attaching itself to your crystal, hold it in your hand and state
clearly, "Only the most positive high-level energy may work through this healing tool".
Charging a Crystal
There are several different ways to Charge a crystal.
- Earth - Crystals may also be buried into the Earth. Bury your crystal point down, and cover
with soil. In a plant pot on the window ledge for a 48 hour period or so and it will recharge them.
- Crystal - a day and a night on
a Citrine or a Clear quartz bed. If you do not have this you may use a selenite cross. Which is placing four blocks of selenite in a cross formation, around your crystal.
- Carrying it – Making it your own, carry
this crystal with you in your pockets and keep it always in the room with you, without anyone else ever touching it during this process of one week. You and the crystal become and you will feel
a stronger connection to the crystal as you hold it more often you will sense physical feelings of energies from personally charging.
- Sunlight – Crystals in full sunlight, be sure to follow the sun’s pattern with your crystals over a full day of
sunlight. (start of sunrise to complete sunset)
These options charge your crystals and re-energise them.
Crystals have traveled a long way to get to you and have been touched by many people.
It now will be personally charged for you.
