Programming Crystals

So after listening to last weeks episode, you know how to cleanse and clear your crystals, and you have your crystal kit ready. Time to start the healing! First, you need to program your crystals. Just as your computer stores information in electronic bits, crystals store information in “the molecular structure of the quartz crystal as magnetic charged data.” Data in crystals is stored as thought forms. Thought forms are “pictures and/or other sensory data, powered or intensified by emotion.”

You use your brow to program the crystal. Figure out the purpose of the program, and the end result of the program in as many sensory modalities you can. Then GO INSIDE the crystal and imagine the purpose and end result. When it “feels real”, you’re done. You can even reuse crystals by reprogramming them.

Crystal Energy Grid Systems

You can also tie down a crystal program in a specific place. It’s like wi-fi, but for life energy. So instead of using a healing crystal on an individual to make them happy, you can use crystals to make your living room a happier place. 

How does this work? Well, it’s complicated. As we ALL know, everything is energy. Since geometry tells us about spatial relationships between objects, it also tells us about spatial relationships between energy. Specifically, 3D energy. But what about the fourth dimension and beyond? No, it’s not time; its pure thought! But it still has a geometrical form.

So once you program a bunch of crystals, you need to arrange them in a 3D geometrical pattern that matches their 4D thought geometry. You can use these grids to “charge” objects with “life force energy”.

A 4 sided grid is a common setup and is basically a pyramid. Attach 4 crystals to each corner of the room. Using “some form of tape”, 6 inches from the floor. If you’re in a circular room you’re fucked. And it should be 6 inches from the floor because the magic of crystals is nullified by molding. Use thread to tie the 5th crystal to a thumbtack and stick it into the middle of the ceiling.

To activate it, start by numbering the crystals. The upper left crystal is one, counting to 4 counterclockwise, and the center crystal is 5. With a crystal in your RIGHT hand, point it at the center crystal and imagine a rod of light connecting it to the 1st crystal, then the 2nd, and back to the 5th, creating one side of the pyramid.Then do the same for each “side” of the pyramid

The last step is to point your crystal to the 5th crystal and, once again, say the Light Invocation 3 times. BOOM! You have a crystal grid which boosts your life energy. The grid has an average radius of 30 feet. Unclear whether you need to program your crystals first or if crystal grids are just all purpose energy boosters. You can make a 6 sided (really 7 sided) crystal grid by doing the same thing with 7 crystals. Why do one rather than the other? Who knows!

How do you take care of your crystals?

You might be thinking by now, If crystals can do ALL THIS how do I take care of them?! Luckily there is a plethora of websites you can visit and books you can buy that tell you exactly how to take care of your magical crystals. 

First and foremost, you gotta keep them charged. If they aren’t charged they aren’t as effective. You charge them by setting them in the moonlight or sunlight. Crystal healer Nick Lasky explains that lunar and solar energy activates and re-energizes the crystal’s healing powers. He says that crystals absorb the energy around them and by cleansing the crystals in the moonlight or sunlight it releases this pent up energy or rather breaks up any “bad vibes” that the crystal may be storing. He said, “If you get into a huge screaming fight” with your boyfriend or girlfriend and there’s a piece of quartz nearby, that quartz is going to hold onto those negative emotions long after your fight is over.”

You also need to clean your crystals. You can do this by running them under cold water or smudging them with sage. 

Lasky says look your crystals want to work but you have to program each crystal with a specific intention. Crystal fanatic Kristy Hodges said on her blog that there is a HUGE difference between cleaning your crystals and charging them so don’t get these two things confused. She says, 

Don’t think because something cleanses it has the ability to charge as well…..smudging is a perfect example. Sure, smoke can bind negative energy and dispel it, but it cannot energise things ~ it is fantastic for cleansing/clearing, but will NOT charge a crystal. Sound is also excellent for clearing negative energy, the sound wave literally whacks the negative frequencies right out of the crystal. However, for it to add a frequency to a crystal, the sound wave must be of a higher frequency than that of a crystal.

Hodges says on her blog post that “proven” methods of crystal charging are in the sunlight and in a crystal cluster. This is taking smaller crystals of a lower vibration like tumble stones or pieces of jewelry the smaller pieces will absorb the energy of the larger pieces and will become charged. The larger cluster must be cleansed and recharged after each use. 

But how do you cleanse your crystal? There are several different ways. Here’s just a few: (from the “Crystal Cleansing 101” article from the hoodwitch.com)

Salt water

Suitable crystals can be left to soak in sea water or water mixed with sea salt. Cooking salt can also be used if sea salt/water is not available. You should fill a glass bowl (not metal) about half to one third full and place your crystals so they are fully submerged in the salt water for anywhere between 1 to 24 hours.

Dry salt

Another salt method is to half-fill a glass bowl with sea salt (or cooking salt) and place your crystals directly into the salt. Either bury them into the dry salt or leave them on the surface. They should be left in the salt for several hours, overnight or for several days.

Non-contact salt

This is considered the safest salt-cleansing method and should be used where the crystals may otherwise be damaged by direct contact with salt. This is also a good method if you are cleansing gem stones found in jewellery or gems surrounded by metal.

Crystal druse, bed, geode, or cluster

All crystals can be cleansed safely by placing them inside an Amethyst Geode Cave overnight or for 24-48 hours. An Amethyst Druse, Cluster, or Bed can also be used in the same way. A Clear Quartz Geode, Bed or Cluster provides a faster cleansing process than Amethyst, but both methods are equally as effective.

Smudging

This involves burning either Smudge Sticks or Incense Sticks and holding the crystals in the smoke to cleanse the stored energies. Several types of incense are specifically recommended for this because, when burned, they release certain elements into the air via the smoke which can effectively remove bad and built-up energies.

Visualization

You can also use visualization or 'thought energy' to cleanse crystals. Simply hold the crystal, focus on it, and visualize a bright white light surrounding the crystal, followed by a beam of white light coming down through the stone, passing all the way through the stone, taking away stored energy within the stone. Do this until you feel happy that the white light has done its job and flushed away the stored energies. The 'thought energy' generated by you will be transmitted to the stone and this cleansing energy will do the job of clearing the stone of its stored energies.

I would like a wrap up summary here because of all the C words we are throwing around. We have to Clear, Cleanse, And Charge. I’m going to use a computer analogy

  • Clearing the crystal is like running anti-virus software and deleting the virus.

  • Cleansing is similar but only quarantines the virus

  • Charging the crystal is like plugging it in.

  • Then you can program the crystal.

On a serious note, I wonder if the rise of personal computers and computing lingo in the 80’s had some affect on the return of crystal healing.

Crystal Protection

We all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Can we apply the same principle to crystal healing? You betcha! Just a healing crystals can alter our chakra energies to cure disease and make us groovy, protection crystals can cancel negative energies before they wreck havoc on us in the first place. It’s just like noise-cancelling headphones. They work by producing a frequency which cancels out any noise frequencies. Protection crystals cancel out negative energies from your boss or the man, man.

What can you protect yourself from? According to Diana Houston of crystalsandjewelery.com, a whole bunch! 

  • Other people’s stress, anxiety, anger, and emotional energy.

  • Ill wishes, curses, and psychic attacks

  • Jealousy, envy, fixation, or spirit attachments, malevolent spirits, and sorcery.

  • Abuse, manipulation, and even ill fortune and bad luck.

You can protect more than your person; you can also protect your plot of land, your house, your room, and even your pets.

Crystals can protect you in different ways. For example, say you are prone to absorbing emotional energies. One crystal isn’t going to numb you to all these emotional energies. I guess because they are of different frequencies? This isn’t explained. But you can use just one crystal to prevent you from absorbing them in the first place.

Why can one do this but one can’t numb you? Think of it this way: You can’t just use one strategy to deal with the various kinds of annoying strangers who try to bother you on the street. But one simple shirt that says “Bronies for National Socialism” will prevent all of them for ever bothering you again.

If someone wishes you harm, a crystal can alter your energy so their bad energies can’t hit the target. It’s like in the Hunt for Red October when the sub uses those torpedo countermeasures. Except you are Ramius, the countermeasures are a crystal, and the torpedo is some dickhead vibes. Some just block or cloak. Some prevent manipulation, while others alter the negative energies to render them harmless.

Just as with crystal healing, crystal protection requires selecting the correct crystal to counteract whatever negative energies you are encountering. Actually, just kidding, smoking quartz is best for everything. It protects you from negativity and transmutes negative energy so it can be useful. Its main function seems to be “grounding” negative energy. Not only does smoky quartz ground negative energies, but can “ground” you back to health and “ground” you to the earth. Also, it makes you feel lighter, brighter, and calmer for some reason.

But smoky quartz isn’t enough! You gotta combine it with other crystals to get the best effects.

Black tourmaline “creates something like an electrical force field around your aura so that lower vibrations and psychic junk will just bounce off you.”

Jet stone sucks all the negative emotions that managed to slip past the black tourmaline and smoky quartz.

Labradorite shields you from psychic attacks, ill wishes, and fixations. It can help when people “hate on you, gossip about you, wish for your ruin, or throw hurtful words at you”

Fluorite also helps with psychic attacks, but also curses and sorcery. It’s the Red October variety; it cloaks your energy signature so black magic can’t find it’s target. 

Believe it or not, there are people out there who will resort to black magic just to inflict the worst possible harm on someone.

Blue Kyanite keeps people from messing with your head, specifically lying, bullying, coercion, and manipulation. It also removes self-doubt and keeps you from second guessing yourself.

Anti-Crystal Christians

Evangelicals consider crystal healing part of the occult. On one website, allabouttheoccult.org, They open with this statement, 

Ultimately, [crystals] are used to cleanse the person from bad or negative energy believed to cause an illness. Clearing out the bad spiritual energy alleviates the physical ailment. Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Not only do people visit "crystal healers", in some places, professional nurses are being trained to use crystals for their patients.

The website goes on to lay out the basic idea behind crystal healing and even states that crystal healing can be dangerous if a patient stops traditional medicine. However, this is where the real problem lies according to the “all about the occult”,

It can be dangerous spiritually, since this is a practice that calls upon powers to heal that are not from God. People put their hope in a crystal to heal them, or even the "crystal healer", who "channel" and rely on the crystals to teach and heal. Unfortunately, they are relying on spiritual sources for the healing. Even if they claim that they are using the crystal to direct physical energy flow to help bring balance, it is rooted in the spiritual realm, meaning there is some source working behind it.

Ultimately, this is considered an occult practice, which God clearly tells us to stay away from. God doesn't want us to participate with these practices because it draws us away from Him and we begin to trust in spiritual sources other than Him. At its core, crystal healing is a form of mysticism, witchcraft, and occult practices. Jesus never used crystals to heal and it wasn't encouraged anywhere in the Bible.

What does the Bible say about crystals. For this we turned to Bibleinfo.com and the article titled, “What does the bible say about crystals”,

Crystals certainly are beautiful objects, for they were created by God. Portions of God's glorious heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, will be constructed from crystal. It's in the Bible, Revelation 21:11, & 18-20 NIV

When evaluating the appropriateness of using crystals for healing purposes, it is important to be aware of the fact that the majority of experts who promote crystal healing are involved in the occult. The word occult means 'hidden'. 

Occultism concerns itself with the study and utilization of supernatural influences, powers and phenomena that are normally hidden from the regular physical senses, and are generally considered to be outside the realm of traditional scientific observation.

Occultists believe that human beings, and the world in which we live, are permeated by invisible mystical energies. They believe that these energies can be focused and directed by 'sacred stones', such as crystals and other talismans, so as to induce physical healing and spiritual enlightenment.

The article goes on to describe a passage in Old Testament (Deuteronomy 18:9-12). The Israelites were warned by God against involvement in the occult as they were about to enter into the Promised Land of Canaan. Here’s the passage,

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Bibleinfo.com site describes the time period of the Old Testament and how many non-Israelite pagans wore jewelry with crystals for protection. In Ezekiel 13:18, 20 & 21 NIV it says, 

This is what the Sovereign Lord says: 'Woe to the women who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds, and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power.'

Quoting from the website,

The Bible categorizes the use of amulets as a form of pagan magic. Modern proponents of crystal power regard crystal healing to be 'benevolent magic', also known as 'white magic' 

Occult magic can sometimes produce spectacular manifestations of power. Instances of this are described in the Bible. For example, Exodus 7:10-12 NIV, 

So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake. Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers; and the Egyptian magicians also did the same thing by their secret arts. Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake.

BibleInfo.com follows this by saying, 

From a description of the two other miracles performed by Pharaoh's sorcerers, we know they were using occult powers, not sleight-of-hand stage-type magic.

Miracles, signs and wonders can often be the work of Satan. It's in the Bible, 2 Thessalonians 2:9 & 10

So the rest of this article is nothing but quoting Bible passages about how much God hates competition (aka: the Occult vs the Occult) but crystals aren’t even mentioned at all. I did a search for the word “crystal” and they are all clustered around the first ⅓ of the article. Moving on.

The last article on this topic I looked at was put out by CRI (Christian Research Institute). The title of the article is “Crystals and the New Age” by Elliot Miller. Mr. Miller disagrees with the previous author, 

Though we do believe in demonic energy that can work through occult practices, we see no reasonable basis to hold that crystals have inherent properties that make them especially good transmitters of demonic power.

Does this mean that we should discount all testimonies of healing and manifestations of psychic power through crystals? No. Demonic energy can work through people’s belief in magical objects.

As was the case with pyramids several years ago, when people associate crystals with an occult understanding of universal energy and place faith in them for healing or other desired ends, with their free wills they are opening up a door for demonic intrusion and deception.

No doubt Satan is willing to provide phenomena to reinforce a false belief concerning the universe and God. Thus, there may be true cases of psychic manifestations involving crystals, but the manifestations occurred because of the people’s expectations, and not because of any inherent properties in crystals themselves.
