How to programme crystals
Programming crystals could be done using a passive or an active method.
Both methods lead to the same objective: asking crystals to help us with a specific task or need.
When a crystal is used repetitively while we do something or is exposed regularly to something we are programming it passively.
Passive programming happens when a crystal is exposed to a colour, a plant, a piece of music or a picture or used when taking care of places, animals or people. This also happens when exposing it to a written affirmation . The crystal will habituate itself to this repetitive action and help to recreate the energy, the atmosphere. Crystals also facilitate the actions we are making or help with a written wish.
This method does not involve human interaction very much: we do not ask directly.
Unfortunately this could also mislead the crystal: if we habitually perform something wrongly, unconsciously make mistakes repeatedly, assuming that all is well, the crystal will facilitate the mistakes because it is passively programmed like that.
On the other hand it is important to consider that this programming method is less intrusive because we do not programme our will directly. It is also longer lasting because the crystal will repeat the programme as a habit.
The active method involves asking the crystal directly to help us. Please use only cleansed crystals for this! Taking the crystal in our hand and stare at it, rub the thumb of our dominant hand on its surface or one of faces, or put the crystal on our third eye area and – concentrating intensely on it- we ask for help or we say aloud the decree that contains our request. It is important that this should be done with a positive attitude and that what we wish is for the greater good. The process may need to be repeated so that the crystal has the opportunity to become accustomed to this new process.
This method is possibly the most successful because it addresses directly what our needs are. One of the most common programmes is self-cleansing: once the crystals are cleansed they are programmed to self-clean. This is often used with crystals used in jewellery. The benefit of this is that we we do not need to clean our crystals so often. On the other hand, I believe that once in a while everything needs a spring clean.
It is extremely important to understand the crystal before programming: it could have been programmed earlier and refuse any other programme. What is more, we need to feel that the crystal has accepted our request and is working according to its abilities and qualities (colour, family, geological nature and innate capacities). Once the crystal accepts the programme it will open its structure to receive it. Then we need to ask the crystal to close its structure and keep the programme within.
Once our request has been realised, the crystal needs to be de-programmed. Taking the crystal in our hand and stare at it, rub the thumb of our dominant hand on its surface or one of faces, or put the crystal on our third eye area and – concentrating intensely on it- we ask to release the crystal from any programme.
