How to Clear and Program Crystals

Returning crystals to their natural frequency

Crystals are most effective when they are vibrating at their natural frequency. Over time, exposure to different energies may shift them away from this natural state. This means that every so often, your crystals will need to be cleared or reset. There are several methods by which this can be done, and you will learn over time which method is most effective for you and your crystals.

Using water to clear your crystals

The following video offers step by step instructions for one method of clearing and programming your crystals.

Note that this method should not be used for certain crystals that are not compatible with water. This includes those that are porous, contain metal, or have water content.

Using sound to clear your crystals

Some energies may cause your crystals to go out of tune with the Earth, hindering their ability to take in energy from the Earth’s electromagnetic field. Sound is a physical energy that has the ability to move matter, which makes it a very effective tool for clearing crystals.  When using sound to clear your crystals, there is no need to worry about the frequency as the amplitude is most important.

Bathe your crystals in one of these sounds:

  • Singing bowl
  • Gong
  • Vocal toning
  • Bells
  • Tuning fork
  • Drums

 

Exposing your crystals to high amplitude sounds for a few minutes will tune them to the Earth’s electromagnetic field. You can perform this method on all of your crystals at one time.

Building a relationship with your crystals

The molecular structure of crystals makes them powerful conduits of energy. As they form deep within the Earth’s crust, they absorb lessons from the Earth mother which prepare them to aid in healing, protection, and manifestation. If you’re new to working with crystals, it’s important to remember that they should not be treated just as tools, but as powerful co-creators. Building a relationship with your crystals is essential to their effectiveness and the first part of that relationship is proper care.



How Reiki Symbols Can Change Your Life

how reiki symbols change your life

Reiki is a spiritually guided life force energy used as a non-physical healing practice. Developed by Mikao Usui, Reiki is not a religion nor is it taught in the usual sense – rather it is transferred from the master to the student during an “attunement.” But don’t get too excited just yet – there’s still plenty to study.

Reiki With Intention

While in order to become a Reiki master one must live in a way that promotes harmony, Reiki is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development. In fact, you don’t even have to believe in Reiki in order for it to work. However, the intention behind the practitioner is what gives the practice its strength and therefore must be cultivated.

Five Reiki Symbols to Open Your Mind

To help with this harmonious cultivation, five Reiki symbols were developed as teaching tools for students and are meant to be keys that open the door to a higher mind. These symbols may seem mysterious and somewhat intimidating at first, but they’re actually very easy to grasp. The Reiki symbols are based on the Japanese writing system, Kanji and should be drawn or visualized as taught during the Reiki 2 Attunement. By visualizing these symbols, the user is quickly connected to the universal life force and all negative predispositions are overridden.
