The word crystal derives from the Ancient Greek word κρύσταλλος (krustallos), meaning both "ice" and "rock crystal", from κρύος (kruos), "icy cold, frost". The word "quartz" comes from the German Quarz (help. · info), which is of Slavic origin (Czech miners called it křemen). Other sources attribute the word's origin to the Saxon word Querkluftertz, meaning cross-vein ore.
Disclaimer: Crystals are more linked to us than you may know, they compliment our bodies, mind and spirit providing us with natural healing qualities that work on a harmonious spirit level. No they won't cure Cancer or replace the need for a specialists or prescribed medication. Do not program any crystal for negativity as crystals are not designed t bring misfortune but purity and right balance of energies in order to manifests ones rightful outcome. To program negative intent can cause your crystal to cease working altogether. What you will need • An open mind • Crystal - large enough to hold in the palm of your hand • Himalayan Rock Salt • A small saucer • Twine - For tying • Satin Colored cloth - large enough to wrap the crystal in Satin Cloth Colors to assist - Red - Love, Orange/Gold - Money/Career, Purple/Blue - Spirituality/Astral Travel, Green - Health/Clarity, White - Blessings/Divine Gifts
What can be achieved? A well programmed crystal can assist in attracting better circumstances, provide cleanse the aura or astral of toxins and/or blockages, bring calm to a room it is placed, lift ones confidence, assist in healing emotions, releasing negative thoughts, manifesting harmony, grounding ones energies, assist in clarity, can assist in purification of water, dowsing, ITC, amplification can result in a heightened connection to ones psyche', spirit or angelic communication. First one needs to have a purpose, although a crystal can be used for multiple desires or needs, I prefer to treat each one uniquely for one sole purpose, think of it as you would be given a task to do, which you may be able to manage being it is just one task, however should there be a sudden overwhelming multiplication of other tasks expected of you, suddenly just as you might become stressed, so too the crystal can become stressed and just as we can become run down, so too, can our beautiful crystal quartz. Hence why charging it is essential. 'Happy Crystal' better chance of the outcome results meeting your satisfaction, 'Unhappy Crystal' I think you get the picture.
Now pay attention to the complex yet delicate crystal you hold in your palm, examine it, get to know its smooth or bold texture, connect with it, know that soon you will see that as an extension of yourself on a spiritual level, a universal link perfectly encapsulated within this precious stone. Write down the task that you will appoint the crystal once the cleansing is complete. Keep it handy, and do not waiver your thoughts from its task. Step One - Cleansing With a light trickle from a cold water tap or pond water, gently swish the crystal under the water so that it becomes completely saturated, never use soaps or other chemicals on your crystals and more importantly, once your procedure of programming is done, no one but you should ever hold your crystal. Step Two - Charging Grab a small saucer, preferably the one that has the cup placement ring at the center, using Himalayan Rock Salt or any other Rock salt teaspoon it around the perimeter edge of the center cup ring of the saucer, so where you would normally sit a cup is clear of any trace of salts. Gently place your still wet crystal into a square piece of colored silk cloth large enough to draw the sides of the cloth up around the crystal and tie it with twine into a bow, then place the crystal in the colored cloth in the center of the saucer, completely center to the salt ring. Locate a window of your home that has the Moon facing it, it doesn't matter whether trees are in the way. Place the saucer with the crystal on the sill or on a table beside the window, gently move aside a curtain or blind to ensure the the Moon has a powerful gravitational connection with the crystal. Leave overnight, or for more intense charging, leave for a whole 48 hours for a full and effective charge by the Moon that acts like a large portable battery. [The Moon has a incredible magnetic effect that not only can control the tides, but by nature, women are lunar. It's no coincidence that the length of our menstrual cycles are synced up with the waxing and waning of the moon, occurring around every 28 days. If we are synced up with the moon's cycle, we will menstruate around the new moon and ovulate around the full moon.] Step Three - Programming Once the charging has gone through a full cycle from night to day, take the crystal from the center of the saucer, sit down and holding it in the palm of your hand and be sure to have beside you in easy viewing, the paper you wrote the desire or need upon. (you will need to say these words aloud). Start by visualizing a light streaming from your heart center into the crystal, then back out of the top of the crystal visualize a light streaming toward your Third Eye (situated in the area found between your eyebrows). Continue to visualize this ray of light first moving out slowly from your chest, into the crystal then to your Third Eye then gradually picking up speed until it becomes a consistent light stream in the shape of a pyramid moving about turning from white to a golden yellow. Now here are the words to say and in the blank section you will state what request you wrote being your chosen desire or need you are seeking this crystal to assist you in manifesting. as you speak these words, see the desire you seek manifesting, you may not know it but your creative visualization is about to get real. Ready to program your crystal? Let's go.. Hold the vision steady in your mind, then speak these words directly and with sincerity to your crystal 'You who are the source of unlimited potential, your task is to assist me in .......................... I trust and love you and thank you humbly for your swift action now, I am thankful to God, the universe, these great divine blessings now reach me under grace in a perfect way!' Now with your other hand, place your other palm upon the top of the crystal, in a ritual that seals within it your request, repeat the words above along with your desire or need in the space provided, and visualize these becoming one with your crystal. Under no circumstance allow anyone else to hold it, otherwise this can break your bond. Repeat the Programming affirmation every day and once finished, sit the crystal in a place where it is close to you as you sleep. The crystal once charged and programmed will continue to amplify the right situation, you will act as the switch the positive source of love and complete trust and the crystal will create changes. Always remember to thank your crystal in advance of receiving and after having received. Trust is key in demonstrating trust in what you are asking of your crystal. Best time to re-cleanse, charge & program? I have always found that during a Full Moon it is best to start a fresh cleanse, charge & program. Think of it like recharging a battery, but in the end much more rewarding! ;) My Crystal Asks if I trust it? EVP - Spirit within.
