So you have crystals and you don’t know what to do them, right?! Well here are the basics of how to get them ready so you can start experiencing the magic behind crystal healing.
If you are new to crystals, don’t worry. Most of the metaphysical world is all about intuition, so go with your gut if you feel drawn to do so.
Here is a beginner’s guide on what the difference is between charging, cleansing, and programming your friends when you get them, and what to do while you have them!
When you first get a crystal or you just feel that it isn’t happy or not clean, cleanse it! You can cleanse it in many ways, so do what resonates with you. You don’t need to cleanse them very often, only when a lot of people are touching them or when you feel that they’re dirty. If you’re using them just for yourself, then you’ll only need to charge them.
- Sage is an amazing tool to use. All you have to do is light the end of it, let it burn for a few seconds, then blow it out. It’ll smoke a little bit, which is okay. Run your crystals through the smoke and you’re good to go.
- A mix of sea salt and water, my favorite salt to use is Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Just put together a good mix of salt and water, then let your crystals take a bath in the water mixture. Leave in for roughly ten minutes, dry, and you’re golden.
Charging your crystals every Full Moon is a good practice. Theoon becomes full ever 28 days so that’s perfect timing for your crystals and they’ll keep they’re charge always. Set them all outside under the moonlight so they can soak it up. I usually leave them there while I sleep, but even a few hours will do.
To program a crystal pretty much means that you’re putting an intention into it, you’re telling it what to do. Crystals work better when told what they have as an end goal. Programming them on what to do a specific task works like magic! We have different energy waves on each side of our body, left is going to be the receiving end and the right side is the giving end.
To program a crystal just hold the crystal in the right hand, and give it the intention. You can just meditate on the idea of what the end result looks like, feels like. You can also say out loud what the intention is. Do what works best for you, just give it those thoughts and energy for a few minutes, then its programmed.
Not all crystals need to be programmed. I program crystals mostly when I’m using them for crystal grids or when I’m wanting to help give me support emotionally or spiritually.
Now that you know how to cleanse, charge, and program your crystals, start working with them. Put them close to you or meditate with them. You’ll see the magic happen!
