Many of the stones with the highest vibrations are rare minerals, but by combining one of the rare minerals with other more common high energy stones, you can create an amazing result. A crystal is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules, or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions.In addition, macroscopic single crystals are usually identifiable by their geometrical shape, consisting of flat faces with specific, characteristic orientations. The scientific study of crystals and crystal formation is known as crystallography. The process of crystal formation via mechanisms of crystal growth is called crystallization or solidification.The word crystal derives from the Ancient Greek word κρύσταλλος (krustallos), meaning both “ice” and “rock crystal”,from κρύος (kruos), “icy cold, frost”.Examples of large crystals include snowflakes, diamonds, and table salt. Most inorganic solids are not crystals but poly crystals, i.e. many microscopic crystals fused together into a single solid. Examples of poly crystals include most metals, rocks, ceramics, and ice. A third category of solids is amorphous solids, where the atoms have no periodic structure whatsoever. Examples of amorphous solids include glass, wax, and many plastics.Crystals are often used in pseudo scientific practices such as crystal therapy, and, along with gemstones, are sometimes associated with spell work in Wiccan beliefs and related religious movements.

Healing stones, crystals and semi-precious gemstones come from one unified source – Mother Earth. Created from the magma or Earth’s inner core, healing stones have gone through a geologic process of heating, cooling and displacement on their way to their present form.

Crystals are part of the earth itself and of nature. They are comprised of quartz and silica, which are also a major component of the human body. Like color, crystals also emit a vibration frequency, which matches the electromagnetic field of both the earth and its human occupants. The most widely used crystal today is clear quartz and it can be found powering watches, computers and radios to name a few. Within the light catchers and jewelry the sympathetic resonance of quartz is used for its healing properties and to amplify the energy of the other stones.

Crystals and gemstones are like people, each one is unique and exudes a specific energy, a crystal or gemstone may be used for healing, magic, spell casting, to inspire, uplift, balance, calm and energize. Stone can enhance learning, alleviate stress, balance the energy fields in your home, activate your energy and promote lucid dreaming.

Crystal energy can assist you in any area of your life and for any reason, each crystal or gem has a multitude of uses, and it will choose you, not the other way around. When purchasing a crystal or gemstone there will always be one that stands out from the rest, you will be attracted to the stone and be compelled to take it home with you. The crystal or gemstone that comes to you will be the one you need at that particular moment in your life.Movement in the Earth’s crust is the catalyst for the formation of a crystal, as super heated liquids and gases, filled with different elements, move rapidly towards the surface. As the liquids and gases cool they crystallize, the temperature, pressure, surrounding rocks and other elements determine which minerals crystallize at a particular pace, crystals and rocks produced in this way are known as igneous. When crystals and rocks are exposed to the elements, they begin to erode and small particles are washed into the sea forming silt deposits. After extreme pressure for millions of years, these deposits become compressed, forming sedimentary crystals and rock. It is not necessary for a person to possess special abilities to work with crystals and gems, all you need is the intention and the desire to perform a particular type of magic to enhance your life, the work is done with the energy of the crystal or gem, and you are the conduit. Seen as a connecting force between earth and ether, crystals are used for crystal ball readings, scrying, spell casting and invoking.

Image result for Dedicating Healing Crystals fantasy artGemstones come in multiple forms and colors. Their different colors resonate with the body’s energy system and although their energetic effect is more diffuse than crystals, they are extremely useful for harmonizing an environment or wearing on your person as jewelry. As with color and crystals, gemstones also provide a symbolic and energetic connection to nature. They have also been linked to the Archangels.

The energy field of different gemstones is influenced by geometrical form, color and subtle vibration. Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion thus emitting an energy signature or frequency. The gemstone’s color also plays a dynamic role in the stone’s healing energy. The play of light and color can stimulate or calm; purify or heal. You can attune to the energy of a crystal or gem, by touch, and moving the stone from hand to hand while you concentrate on the particular qualities of the individual stone. After a few minutes you will become aware of a pulsing or tingling in your hands. This is a signal of your conscious awareness of crystal energy, and a bonding between you and your crystal.Each crystal has a pre-programmed energy for you to work with, and if you state your intention before working with a particular crystal, it will then resonate with energy and amplify the energy. While holding the crystal in both hands, breathe deeply in through the nose and out through the mouth and into the crystal, do this for approximately 3 minutes. By doing this you are connecting your intention with the inherent qualities of the crystal and activating the life energy within the crystal.

Stones are believed to have an extensive memory, remembering where they’ve been, who they’ve touched, and all forces and energies that have surrounded them. A stone can pass onto others any energy that it has stored within it. Periodically, stones need to be cleansed of any unwanted energies that they may have collected from you, from others, or from the environment.For instance, healers take care to clean their healing stones after each use because the stones might take pain (both physical and emotional) into themselves and pass it onto others if they have not been cleansed of those energies between uses. If a stone has absorbed negative energies, it may not work well for whatever purpose it has been programmed.

A magical and symbiotic connection has always existed between human beings and gems. Evidence of gemstones used for healing has been found as far back as the fourth millennium before Christ. Ancient civilizations such as the Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, or Shamans and Medicine Men have used gemstones for healing in multiple ways – made into powders or elixirs, worn, carried or placed on the body and in ceremonies or rituals. This ancient knowledge has been passed down to our day and with the emerging popularity of holistic health and healing the use of gemstones is again making its way into modern life.Crystals and gemstones have amazing holistic healing abilities and can be used for many other applications such as meditation, quantum touch healing and cosmic energy, as well as for chakra clearing and chakra balancing.

Dedicating a stone or crystal involves nothing more than making it known that only the most positive energy may flow through the crystal, and that it will be used only for the highest good of all concerned. Dedication focuses this intention into the crystal, which helps guard against negative energy clinging onto your stone.

Stones and crystals absorb and neutralize negative energy, and then transmute it into positive energy before releasing it. Sometimes, however, negative energy can attach to the crystals and stones which can cause the stone’s programming to become ineffective. It is also possible for the negative energy that is attached to a stone to be transmitted to the stone’s user. Dedicating a stone to a high-level healing energy protects the stone’s energy from being interfered with or negatively influenced.All matter from sub-atomic to physical to higher vibration bodies contains dynamic energy.

Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are always in constant motion, emitting an energy frequency.Just as we are influenced by our surroundings, the weather, the food we eat, the color we wear, so are gemstones and crystals.The energy field of gemstones is influenced by its geometrical form, color & subtle vibrations. Color also plays a dynamic role in the stones healing energy. The play of light and color can stimulate or calm, purify or heal. We can use color to enhance each gemstone’s healing properties.So when we wear crystals and gemstones or have them in our living space, they will emit energy vibrations that bring a sense of well being on all levels.After cleansing, the next step is to dedicate your stone or crystal.

Crystals that agree to work with you do so more cheerfully feeling, and better. Before dedicating a crystal, clear any unwanted energies from the crystal. Then in your sacred space, ground and stabilize yourself. Ask with clear focus and intent if the crystal is willing to work with you.Dedicating healing crystals and attuning to their healing energies are highly recommended practices in crystal healing.Before dedicating a crystal, clear any unwanted energies from the crystal. Then in your sacred space, ground and stabilize yourself.When you’ve cleared your crystals, it is important to dedicate or program them. A clear, but un dedicated or un-programmed crystal is like an empty space, waiting to be filled. So if you don’t fill it with Pure Light and Universal love (in keeping with your spiritual practices and beliefs), or give it a job to do, your crystal can become filled with other energies and may need clearing again sooner than you would like.

To dedicate your crystals, hold them in your hand, a few at a time, and picture a pure light surrounding them. Then repeat your dedication of them aloud or in your mind, 3-5 times in a row.  A sample dedication would be, “I dedicate these crystals to be used only for the highest good of all and to be a blessing to all who receive their healing.”  Here’s mine (it’s long and wordy, but it fits my energy and what I’ve experienced doing energy work and crystal healing. As I am Christian, so is my dedication): “I dedicate these crystals to the Glory of God and in the name of Jesus Christ. They are to be used only with, by and for energies of Unconditional Love and Pure light, and for purpose perfectly aligned with the Divine Plan, in all time frames, all dimensions and all realities.” Your dedication should embrace who you are, what you believe and the conviction that you only want to use crystals for good, so as to do no harm in your healing or other energy work. Programming crystals works the same way as dedicating them. It’s important to state your program as clear as you can, and again, to repeat it several times in a row while holding your crystal.

To dedicate your stone or crystal Image result for Dedicating Crystals spirituality Sit down in a quiet place with your stone or crystal cupped in your hands. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing, taking deep, slow, regular breaths. Center your inner energy on your purpose and allow your attention to follow. Now focus on your crystal and sense its energy. Visualize a ray of pure white light beaming down from the Cosmos and surrounding your crystal. Visualize also the golden grounding energy of the Earth surrounding your crystal as well. Visualize the two lights swirling around each other. Feel the Light of the Cosmos and the energy of the Earth co-mingling, harmonizing, and balancing each other.Feel yourself filling up with a sense of love and positive energy, and direct this energy out from yourself and into your stone. Make a statement (a dedication) in your mind that the crystal will only be used for the highest good. Now open your eyes and gaze at your stone for awhile, keeping your mind focused on that intent. In your mind, direct that intention into your stone. Then end your sensing with “Let it be so”.

You may also wish to dedicate your stone to a specific entity, such as a healing goddess (f.e., Isis, Diana, White Buffalo Calf Woman) or a goddess of protection (f.e., Hecate, Kali). Stones may also be dedicated to an entity that protects and guides you, such as a saint, your guardian angel, your spirit guide, your totem animal, or the Great Spirit.Once the dedication is finished, you can move directly onto the next step, which is to program the stone.

Dedicating a stone is a very quick and simple process, and doing so can have a big impact on the effectiveness of your crystal, as well as your crystal’s effect on you.

Dedicating your healing gemstones ensures that your stones are used for the highest and greatest good of all. Attuning to your healing gemstones ensures your connection with the life force energy of your stone.Therefore after you have thoroughly cleansed and cleared your newly acquired stones dedicating healing crystals is your next step followed by attuning to the life force energy of your stones.

Image result for Dedicating Crystals siting and taking in your handsThe purpose of dedicating the stone to a high level healing energy is to protect it from negative energy. A crystal or stone that is programmed and dedicated in these ways becomes much more powerful and useful as a tool. This is a very simple process.

Remember that cleansing is important before dedicating, attuning and programming you’re healing crystals.

After you choose and clear your gemstone or crystal, you should dedicate and program it. This is a very simple process. Hold the stone in your hand, or touch it if it is too large to hold, and sense its energy. With the stone newly cleared, the energy will feel stronger and even more appealing than before. As you sense this energy and appreciate it, ask quietly to be connected to the deva of the crystal or gem. Though not animate, stones are living things and the deva of the piece is the stone’s life force energy. Remember that every living thing including gemstones is a part of Goddess, and stones are part of the Earth. You may or may not be aware of the stone’s living presence.Once a stone is programmed, it will hold its intent until you or someone else reprograms it.To prevent any negative energy from attaching itself to your crystal you may wish to dedicate it. Before dedicating a crystal, clear any unwanted energies from the crystal. Then in your sacred space, ground and stabilize yourself.

Before starting with dedicating your crystal ask with clear focus and intent if the crystal is willing to work with you.

If you get a positive sense – if it feels good – continue with the ritual.
If you do not get a positive sense, clear unwanted energies from the crystal and ask again, up to 3 times. If you still do not get a positive sense, the crystal may not be ready to work, your energy may be out of balance for the ritual, or the crystal may be stopping with you briefly on its way to a new home. In this case, thank the crystal for its presence and set it aside to try again later.The ritual continues by holding the crystal gently and sound a meditative sound towards it. Prayer Bells, Meditation Gong, or Chanting OM three times all work as meditative sounds.Dedicate the crystal with a statement of dedication three times
“This crystal is dedicated to the best and highest good of all concerned in all its works. So be it.” is a good statement of dedication to use, though you certainly can make up your own.Thank the crystal, and you are ready to go to work together.

Dedicating healing crystals can be done several ways.Using your own words for dedicating healing crystals is also always best but here are two dedications that you can use with the dedication visualization.From this point on may this crystal only be used in the name of love and light. Always for good and high purpose. May only the purest, highest and finest energies be channeled through this crystal and may it work always in accordance with Divine Will. So be it!I dedicate this crystal with love to the benefit of Mother Earth and the brotherhood of all creation. The crystals’ energy will only be utilized in the practice of non-injury in thought, word and deed. So be it!

Hold the crystal or gemstone in your hand and state clearly in your mind: “Only the most positive high-level energy may work through this healing tool.”Focus on your intent for a while, and then end your sensing (meditation) with “so be it.”The stone is now dedicated.Image result for Crystals in your hands fantasy artDedicating Method – Sit down in a quiet place with your stone or crystal cupped in your hands.

Placing intent into a gemstone is not part of any religion. What you have lust done with the gemstone is to “program” it, like programming a computer. If the stone seems to refuse your intent, sense it more deeply and ask what it will do for you. You may be surprised at the response,’ but it will always be something you need. The life force, cosmic energy  in the stone has an intelligence of its own, an awareness that led that particular gemstone or crystal to you. Accept the intent of the stone, agree to the intent, and thank the stone for coming into your life. In this case the stone or crystal has chosen its own programming.Hold the crystal or gemstone in your hand and sense its energy. With the stone being newly cleared, the energy will feel stronger and even more appealing that before.As you sense this energy and appreciate it, ask quietly to be connected to the deva of the crystal or gemstone. Though not animate, stones are living things and the deva of the piece is the stone’s life-force energy.Once you feel you have sensed what you can from the energy, think of what you will be using the stone for. Think of these uses, then quietly ask the gemstone if it is willing to act in the way you wish. The crystals energy may increase with a yes or seem to disappear with a no. If the stone accepts your intent, state in your mind that it be so. If you wish to change the programming of a crystal or gemstone, first clear it thoroughly in sea salt for a longer than ordinary time. Then repeat the programming process above. Tell the energy of the stone that you wish to change its programming or its job. Reprogram it for your new intent. If you give the stone away to someone else, the new owner will reprogram the stone. Again, sense the agreement of the life force of the stone and work with it rather than against it. A stone will hold its programming until you or someone else decides to change it. Once a stone is programmed, it is important to protect its energy from being interfered with in any way. Gemstones and crystals dissolve negative energy, but occasionally negative energy can attach to them for a while. This may result in the stone becoming ineffective as a pendulum or healing tool; it even may transmit negative energy to the user. If this happens, it is generally only temporary—gemstones and crystals do not hold onto negativity—but it is best to prevent the negative energy from happening at all. This process is called “dedicating.” Once you have programmed your newly cleared stone, dedicating it can be done in one of several ways.In the simplest method, hold the stone in your hand and sense its energy and life force. State clearly in your mind: “Only the most positive high-level energy may work through this healing tool.” Focus on that intent for a while, then end your sensing (meditation) with “So mote it be” or “And so it is” as before. The stone is now dedicated, but you may take the process further.

If you use a meditation or, Goddess altar, do your programming and dedicating in front of it, and call on the protection of the four directions and the four elements for the stone. You may do this by using a candle for fire/south, a bowl of water or salt water for water/west, incense smoke for air/east, and a Clear Quartz crystal for Earth/north. At each direction state, “I dedicate this stone to the protection of the north (then south, east, west).” At the north, touch your stone to the Clear Quartz; at the south, pass it quickly above the candle flame; at the east, pass it through the incense smoke; and at the west, dip it into the bowl of water or sprinkle it with a few water drops.

You may also choose to dedicate your stone or crystal to a specific healing energy.

After you choose and clear your gemstone or crystal, it is a good idea to dedicate it or program it.  The purpose of programming a crystal or gemstone is to focus its abilities on something you specifically need, thereby magnifying the stone’s intent through your own.  The purpose of dedicating the stone to a high level healing energy or Goddess (God) is to protect it from negative energy.  A crystal or stone that is programmed  and dedicated in these ways becomes much more powerful and useful as a tool.

This is a very simple process. Hold the crystal or gemstone in your hand and sense its energy.  With the stone being newly cleared, the energy will feel stronger and even more appealing that before.  As you sense this energy and appreciate it, ask quietly to be connected to the deva of the crystal or gemstone.  Though not animate, stones are living things and the deva of the piece is the stone’s life-force energy.  Once you feel you have sensed what you can from the energy, think of what you will be using the stone for.  Think of these uses, then quietly ask the gemstone if it is willing to act in the way you wish.  The crystals energy may increase with a yes or seem to disappear with a no.  If the stone accepts your intent, state in your mind that it be so.  Once a stone is programmed, it will hold its intent until you or someone else reprograms it.

Programming is the process of instructing the energies of the crystals in the method in which to use its qualities of transformation, stability and atonement. 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.The act of holding a crystal and intending to use it for a specific purpose is the simplest form of programming.
Related imageAnother method, primarily relevant to the programming of thoughts and universal energies which are inherent to the mineralogical formation involves the following:

– Formulate a precise phrase which accurately describes the nature of the programming

– Hold the crystal in your dominant hand, relax for several minutes, initiate circular breathing and center yourself. Consciously align the personal conscious awareness with the higher self

– Ask for guidance, protection and assistance in the programming process. Open the center of consciousness and allow receptivity to flow through your inner being.

– Repeat the formulated phrase 20 to 30 times in succession while visualising and/or feeling the desired effect of the program. 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 Chakra or Heart Chakra. Place the crystal in front of the area of the Third-Eye Chakra or Heart Chakra and allow the self to feel the connection with it.

– Direct the energy field into the crystal for 30 to 60 seconds and allow the program to be transferred to within the crystal. Intuitive recognition will signal when the transmittal is complete.

– Detach consciousness from the crystal and allow the universal energies to act.

Protective energies have been gained from the mineralogical kingdom for eons. Crystals have been worn as amulets and talisman and have been programmed for protection in the light and love of the universal forces.

One method which has been used during programming for protection, for example against psychic attack entails a visualization of a protective shield or a bubble of white light emanating from the crystal. The protection of ones possessions or of the home can also be facilitated via this method.

Another technique involves Gridding the home or ones possessions and using a Crystal

Crystal grids can be used for many purposes or manifestations. They can be small enough to fit on a table top or as big as your garden. We can use just a few stones or hundreds! “Grid” is the name we are most familiar with but many different paths use crystals set in geometric patterns and call them by different names – Grids, Nets, Fairy Circles, Medicine Wheels, Earth Altars, and Stone Circles are but just a few.

Grids set up by those adept at channeling energy will hold a charge longer and have to be empowered less often. I do not believe there is one “right” way of making a grid. One should be intuitive and creative. The only real “rule” in making grids is that our intent be clear.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe and transcends all barriers, even the core of rock-like crystal.

It is with love that you will dedicate your healing gemstones.

Life Force Energy of your Healing Gemstones

After the dedication of your healing gemstones, the next step to follow is to attune to the life force energy of the crystal.You will need to focus and be still to feel the life force energy emanating from the crystal. Relax your body, starting at your feet and moving up to your crown; call your energy back to you, from all parts of the Universe, by using intention. Center yourself by grounding to Mother Earth in any way that works for you.Rub your hands together fast for about 30 seconds or so to generate a lot of heat.Sanctify your hands by opening them and lightly blowing on them to create a tingling sensation.In the beginning start by using a single terminated clear Quartz point. Hold your crystal in your dominant hand; lightly touch the crystal (point) to the center of your other hand’s palm.

Move the crystal around your palm and draw it up your arm and move it back to your palm and around in circular motion until you can feel the energy; it will be like a tingling, coolness or moving air.Moving it away see how far away you can pull your crystal and still feel the vibration on your palm.You can now experiment by running the crystal over your whole body at a distance of about six inches (15 centimeters).To increase your sensitivity to life force energy you can also rub your palms together using sea (rock / kosher) salt. Always be in a calm state of mind or you risk feeling nothing. When you have the crystal in your hand, communicate with your crystal by asking for permission to work with it and sending it your love and welcome.Love your healing stones and see them respond to you and your Vibration in a very positive manner.
