Although many crystals can be programmed, it is especially easy to install a program into quartz crystals, and its simple and fast to learn. See the process below.
So why would you want to program a specific crystal? Using programmed crystals may be beneficial for you to use for meditation.
By programming a healing crystals for you to use while doing meditation, you may be enabled to stimulate a number of different gifts or talents or simply find it easier to meditate.
You may even choose to program the crystal you are using with affirmations to help you to relax and unwind more easily during your daily meditation.
What program you decide to place into your crystal will depend on what it is you desire to be the outcome, as there are a number of different outcomes you may want to achieve from this daily practice.
If you would like to use a programmed crystal to help you to experience deeper meditation, you first need to learn how to program crystals you wish to use for this purpose.
Check out my top tips below:
Tip One: It is best if you cleanse the crystal you are going to use for meditation before you put the program in. You may use any method for cleansing crystals that is familiar to you.
Tip Two: The method shown below for programming your crystals and stones can also be used to setup your crystals to cleanse themselves.
There is also information in the article on cleansing crystals about charging your crystals which may also be helpful for you to do before you program them.
You can program your crystal for self cleansing, and this is particularly helpful when you have a large cluster that may be hard to cleanse using other cleansing methods, but of course it can be used for any stone you choose.
I have provided an affirmation below that you can use for this purpose but if you prefer you can make up a different one.
Part of the process of learning how to program crystals is to think about what words will work for your purpose. Thank about the language to use that you are comfortable with and that resonates best with you.
It is also advantageous to use your crystals for a while first so that you are already aware of their energy and can more easily connect with them.
To get started, it can be helpful to choose a smooth stone that is comfortable to hold in your hand, like this lovely piece of Golden Rutilated Quartz shown below.
Note: It may help if you put your ideas down on paper first, and it will work more powerfully if you do this written statement in the form of an affirmation.
Tip Three: It may be helpful to take some time to think about how to program crystals you own and what the purpose might be before installing it into the stone, to ensure you get the best result.
Tip Four: Hold your crystal in your hand, the left hand commonly works better, or in both hands, but do whatever feels right to you.
If your crystal
has a point or termination hold it facing in, towards your arm, to aid
the energy to run through your entire system.
Tip Five: Now relax your mind completely and imagine that you are stepping inside the crystal. Allow yourself to be fully immersed in its energy.
As you make the connection with its energy, share with the crystal what your intentions are, and what you desire that the outcome of this program will be.
When you are looking at the type of program you wish to install in your special stone, there are a number of different types of affirmations you might choose.
Some very powerful statements that work beautifully to benefit you are the more general affirmations, such as the ones listed below.
Start by looking at them, then consider other ideas for different life issues you might like help with. Check out the ideas below, write out your ideas then spend some time brainstorming possibilities.

Once your crystal is programmed, you may then do your crystal meditation with it. While it is possible to program any type of crystal, stones that are silica based such as quartz crystal, jasper and agate are the easiest to program.
Tip Eight: All varieties of quartz crystal will
program easily, so I suggest you start with programming them as you are
most likely to be successful. Later you can see if any other stones you own are
able to take a program or not. Many will, but not all stones are easy to program.
Tip Nine: If you wish to use your crystals primarily to mediate with, this is a good reason why you might choose to place an affirmation into them.
Tip Ten: Also think about programming your jewelry, especially if you own quartz jewelry, such as Amethyst, Citrine, Smokey or Clear Quartz, that you may have on your body during the day.
If you would like to enhance the way any of the stones you own will work to help you with developing particular attributes, the addition of a program may be highly beneficial to help you.
Check out some of the purposes for programming your crystals:
If you are using a crystal to help you with a particular issue, say giving up smoking, you may program it with a supportive statement that will help you.

So for instance if you are fearful you may wish to enhance courage for example, or if you have been feeling angry you may wish to boost peace or good humor.
