How Do You Set An Intention With Crystals?

Every crystal is believed to have its own unique vibrational energy, so simply being around them offers positive effects. But learning how to set intentions with your crystals can get even more out of them and open yourself up to the real magic that they have to offer. The best part is that doing so is easy, so even a beginner to the world of crystal healing can benefit!

Why Program Your Crystals Before Using Them?

"Programming a crystal with an intention gives your crystal its job," explains Heather Askinosie, the co-founder of Energy Muse to Bustle. "It allows your crystal to work for you in the way you want it to, so it's very important."

Giving your crystals a job helps you connect with your own wants and needs, and that is super important.

How to Cleanse Your Crystals?

Charging your crystals is easier than you would think. But before attempting to program any crystal with your intentions, you will want to know to cleanse your crystals first. You want your stone to be pure, clear, and ready to receive your intention.

Water is said to neutralize any negative energy stored inside the stone and return it back to the earth. Although natural running water like a stream is best, but you can also rinse your stone under a faucet. Whatever your water source, ensure that your stone is completely submerged. Pat dry when complete.

How to Program Crystals with Your Intentions?

Once your crystal is cleansed and ready, you should take a few moments to connect with your crystals prior to setting your intentions. Simply, feel and observe your crystals.

Now you are ready to program that crystal of yours!

Program an Intention Into Your Crystal Using Meditation 

Taking a few minutes to sit with your crystal is a great way to get in touch with the energy of your stone and impart your personal intentions into it. Sit quietly, hold the stones, and consider your intent, select one word that captures what you’re looking to create. The next step is to create a simple statement that starts with: My intention is to create more______________. Repeat your intention statement and visualize your intention manifesting in your life.

Lastly, ask your crystal to share its energy with you. As mentioned, each crystal has a unique energy ready to help you create the life of your dreams.
