As a crystal healer and jewelry maker, clients often ask me how to set intentions for pieces they purchase. The short answer is we all have the innate knowledge and power to set intentions. All we have to do is resonate with the universal energy and focus our will into that crystal However, a simple answer does not equate a simple action. As such, below are some step-by-step processes to help one set intentions.
Step 1: Clear Your Mind
Easier said that done. To help with this step, there are a few tricks that have been passed down the ages. If you practice yoga or meditation, these tricks will sound familiar to you:
- Start by breathing.
- Deepen your breath slowly- Focus on releasing the body and letting the breath flow to and from your diaphragm
- Pay attention to the deepened breathing- Let it start to wash over you like waves in an ocean.
- Use the breath to relax your body- You can do this by focusing on one part of the body at a time. I recommend starting with the head and work down to your feet.
- Once feeling relaxed, slowly open your eyes.
These steps should help to clear your mind. If you are similar to me and a person who sometimes grapples making time for her/himself, this entire process can take less than 10 minutes- sometimes 5.
Step 2: Hold the Crystal (or Jewelry)
This by far is the easiest step. Just hold the necklace, ring, bracelet, earrings, or beautiful crystal in your hand(s). (I personally like to hold it in my cupped hands, like giving or receiving an offering.)
Step 3: Think or Say Your Intention
How you voice your intention is up to you. You can give it a quite voice, a loud voice, or an inner voice. Any voice will give it the power needed to be heard by the universe and placed on the crystal in your hands.
Once you have thought this intention, let it flow into your crystal or jewelry. Once you feel this flow finish, you may say thank you or namaste if it feels right. Open your hand(s) with the knowledge that your intention is set.
