When choosing a crystal, you need to trust your intuition. You may find that you are drawn to them by colour or feeling. It might be the eye that attracts you to the right crystal or a tingle you feel when you are holding it. My preferred way in assisting customers is to ask a question... "If you were walking through the garden, which colour flower would you pick?" Now before you answer, you must first have the person who the crystal is for, in your mind/thoughts. Or the reason you are choosing a crystal.
I have always felt that it is more important to choose the crystal and then read its meaning.
Crystals work like colour therapy on the body. Remember, if you are worried about your health always seek medical advice first. Crystals may help enhance your quality of life. They have been known to bring enjoyment and may also help to brighten your day.
Once you have chosen your crystals, then you may wish to programme them. To do this, we recommend you cleanse your crystals first.
CLEANSING AND CARING FOR YOUR CRYSTALS
One way is to hold the crystal under running water and imagine the negativity being washed away. I prefer to hold the crystal in my hand and ask Archangel Michael to remove any negative energy and replace it with positive energy. Negative out, positive in. I say this as I breathe in and out, to each long slow breath.
Or place in the sun or out before the new moon. The sun can fade the colour of the crystal, so a few hours is all that your crystal should need to recharge. Collect rain water around the time of the full moon. Bottle and keep for cleansing your crystals. If you are not expecting rain, place a bucket of water out and allow the moon energy to charge it. Then keep this water in your garage away from light, as too much sunlight will make the water go green.
Another way is to soak them in rock salt. I only recommend this way if all else fails as it is very hard on the crystal. Another method is using rice. Always dispose of any water or rice used to cleanse crystals. Eating or drinking it would be allowing the negative energy into your body. Through it out after use.
Black tourmaline, Selenite and Citrine is said to be self cleansers, keep one with your others crystals. Note - Selenite does not like water.
PROGRAMMING YOUR CRYSTAL
Cleanse your crystals first. Then hold it in your hands and picture white light. Say in your mind, "I ask for this crystal to be true and honest to me, for the good of all." Talk to your crystals as you would when you are trying to manifest things into your everyday life. If you want healing, hold the crystal and picture yourself well, all the pain gone. Then leave it for the Angels to hear and help manifest your desires. Let it go. Release.
