Activating Your Crystals
Once you have cleansed and cleared your crystals, it's very important to activate your crystals.
You may or may not be familiar with how to activate a crystal. Sometimes, a crystal can be a "sleeper", and needs to know it is going to be used for healing or meditative purposes.
Making a spiritual connection with the crystal helps to activate it, to awaken its consciousness. You can activate your crystal through an initiation ritual, by holding it, rolling it back and forth in your hands, sleeping with it, gazing at it, washing it and generally handling it.
To awaken its consciousness through ritual, tell the crystal your intent for its use (e.g. for healing).
This event marks the initiation of the crystal and makes an energy connection with the person using the crystal.
Remember to fully recharge your crystal after you've been handling it for activation purposes.
Programming Your Crystals
Programming your crystal should be relatively easy. Each crystal has its own mission or purpose, its own programming for healing.
Sometimes, it is to provide a grounding force on the planet, maybe working energetically with other crystals in the earth to provide a network of stabile energy across the planet as part of the physical matrix of the planet.
Sometimes, the crystal will carry a specific energy signature by resonating tones, colours and other vibrations that are provided through compassionate forces for humans and other life forms on Earth. Crystals can resonates for a particular chakra, or has a mission to "clear a past life" for instance. We don't want to harm that type of programming either.
You can program crystals with additional information by holding the crystal in your hands. Breathing through your nose and out your mouth, drawing in the energy from the crystal and setting the instructions for what you wish your crystal to help with.
Once the programming is set the crystal will then resonate with those instructions, amplifying, broadcasting, and projecting the new set of energy patterns to ourselves or others as directed.
Use the crystal as you wish but don't forget to reenergize your crystals regularly.
