stone care

clear

To clear or cleanse your stones any of the following will work: Smudge the crystal (e.g. with sweetgrass, cedar, sage, incense, etc.) This method has been used for centuries by Native American and Native American and Native African tribal cultures.

awaken

To awaken your stones any of the below will work:
Impacting the crystal upon the energized sand of the ocean beaches and/or sand dunes. Sounding a meditative gong in proximity to the crystal (this method stimulates the activation of the resonance of the crystal); and gently sounding Tibetan prayer bells (or other bells) in proximity to the crystal (this method aligns the energy of the crystal structure such that it can be efficiently directed).

Place necklace in the light of the sun and moon for a full 24 hour cycle.

charge

To charge your crystals any of the below will work:
Place the crystal on a large crystal cluster. Place the crystal in the center of a circle, where the circle is comprised of other crystals whose terminations are pointing toward the center. Place the crystal in sunlight and or light of the moon; the days related to the summer and winter solstices. the vernal equinox, the autumnal equinox, the full moon, and the new moon are more heavily charged.

program

To program your crystals any of the below will work:
Programming is the process of instructing the energies of the crystal in the method in which to use it's qualities of transformation, stability and attunement. Precise directions are required, or the response will be less than that which is intended. (This precision in intent is beneficial training for those utilizing crystals - with the use of crystals, one may also become "crystal clear" in the use of personal energies.)

The act of holding a crystal and intending to use it for a specific purpose is the simplest form of programming (e.g., for healing or meditation crystals). Another method, primarily relevant to the programming of thoughts, and universal energies which are inherent to the mineralogic formation, involves the following: Formulate a precise phase which accurately describes the nature of the programming (i.e., angelic/other-worldly communication, harmony, balance, love, special healing or protection for someone, etc.).

Hold the crystal in the left hand (if left-handed, hold the crystal in the right hand). Relax for several minutes, initiate circular breathing, and center the consciousness. Consciously align the personal conscious awareness with the higher-self and/or other (pre-defined) appropriate other-worldly beings. Ask for guidance, protection and assistance in the programming process. Open the center of consciousness and allow receptivity to flow through to the inner being. Repeat the formulated phrase 20-30 times in succession while visualizing and/or feeling the desired effect of the program. (be open to higher assistance during this process.) As the phrase is repeated, an energy field will build and culminate in the energy pattern necessary to represent the desired program.

While maintaining full awareness of the energy field, bring total awareness and consciousness to the area of the third-eye or the heart chakra. Place the crystal in front of the area of the third-eye or the heart chakra and allow the self to feel the connection with it.

Direct the energy field into the crystal for 30-60 seconds and allow the program to be transferred to within the crystal. Intuitive recognition will signal when transmittal is complete. Detach consciousness from the crystal and allow the universal energies to act.
