My Top Tips When Programming Your Crystal

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. 

How To Program Crystals: Getting Started

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. 

How To Program Crystals: General Affirmations

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.

Tip Six: For example your affirmation may say....

How To Program Crystals: Getting Started

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:

  • You can insert a program to assist life issues or to boost positive attributes that are already part of the stones vibration.
  • For example: Rose Quartz like the piece above has a strong love vibration, which may be programmed with a specific affirmation to further improve close relationships.
  • Your stone could be used to assist you to make better decisions, enhance your happiness, help your memory, inspire clearer thinking or increase positive feelings towards others for example.
  • 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. In this case either keep it on your body all day or under your pillow at night for it to be the most effective.
  • You may choose an affirmation to assist the release of negative emotions by strengthening the opposite emotions. 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.

I have a number of articles related to helping you to improve various attributes such as imagination, enhancing creativity or for boosting a large number of psychic powers.

When you buy a new stone or crystal, it is advantageous to use it on its own first. Once you are fully aware of its energy, you may choose to combine it with other stones. Combine stones for short periods to begin with, as individuals may react differently.

But knowing how you can combine various stones may be helpful, as this allows you to get the most from your crystals, and may help you to solve specific problems in your life.
