Stones or crystals can be programmed for a specific purpose or intent, such as love, health, prosperity, or even stress relief. Why would you want to do this? The crystal can assist you in two ways: 1) The crystal will retain the programmed energy, which you can access when you need a “boost” for what you are working on, and 2) It is an actual physical reminder that will help keep you focused.
Let me give you an example: Let’s say you want to lose 20 pounds. You’ve chosen a blue Apatite stone because it assists with suppressing hunger. You program the stone to suppress your hunger in order to reduce the amount of food you eat at each meal, therefore losing weight. Once programmed, you keep the stone in your pocket. Since the stone is near you (in your pocket), you are absorbing the programmed energy of an appetite suppressant throughout the day, thereby helping you to eat less at each meal. Also because the stone is in your pocket, each time you place your hand in your pocket, you touch the stone which reminds you to eat less. You can also feel the stone in your pocket, putting slight pressure against your leg, so it continually reminds you to eat less.
Programming is fairly easy; you only need to do 3 things:
Choose a stone or crystal
Cleanse the stone or crystal
First choose a stone or crystal that already has the properties you are wanting to program. For example, you don’t want to choose a stone that amplifies energy if you want to program the stone to help you feel calm. Do your research and muscle test to verify the stone or crystal that you’ve chosen is compatible with your energy.
Second, cleanse the stone or crystal before you program it. You don’t know how many other people have handled the stone/crystal and “deposited” their energy on the it. You want the stone to be free of any prior programming and at its full healing potential before you program it.
Lastly, set your programming intention. Really put some thought into what you want to program. Be specific and use positive words. Vague or negative intentions could bring unwanted results. Let’s say you want to bring more money into your life (and who doesn’t). Stating a negative intention such as “I’m not in debt” could actually have the opposite effect. The reason is that the universe doesn’t understand the negative (or vague) intention. When you say the words “I’m not in debt,” the picture or thought in your head is really about how much debt you are in, therefore you are actually programming the crystal to bring you more debt (not get you out of it). A better intention would be “Because I earn an extra $2,000 per month, I’m financially abundant and debt free.”
So how do you actually program the stone/crystal? Simply sit in a quiet place where you can focus and/or meditate. Get comfortable and hold the stone/crystal in your hand. Tune into the energy of the stone/crystal. Think of your intention and create a picture of that intention in your mind. Now clearly state your intention and imagine transferring that intention into the stone/crystal. You could even begin the sentence with “I program this stone/crystal for (purpose)”. Repeat it several times in order to set/lock the intention into the stone/crystal.
Once your stone/crystal has been programmed, place it in your pocket, wear it, or just keep it near you. Hold or touch it whenever you want to absorb some of the programmed energy. Plus don’t forget, touching it will also reinforce the intention as the stone/crystal acts as a physical reminder of what it is you are trying to accomplish.
To reprogram the stone/crystal, simply repeat steps 2-3 above. Happy programming.
