The Tasks of Clearing, Charging & Programming Your Healing Stones
By Margaret Loris, Crystal Therapist, excerpt from her course Crystals for Healing.
"A crystal is an assemblage of molecules that form a unit cell, a consciousness, a soul. It takes your program and draws to itself the replication of its image."

Crystals and healing stones have great specialized gifts. A given stone radiates specific healing properties and amplify spiritual energies. Crystals are highly powerful and dynamic tools for healing as they contain a number of special properties that interact with us in various ways. Each crystal contains a unique vibration. When using crystals for healing, you are invoking their inherent properties of color, chemical composition, atomic structure, physical shape and spiritual vibration. Finally, crystals possess an ability to multitask. They have the innate ability to magnify healing energy, absorb negative vibrations, and correctly balance energy.
But before using crystals for healing, it is important to:
You clean your closet. You pick things up from the floor, wash the floor, rehang clothes, and arrange shoes...
In a similar way, you clean your crystal of dirt, debris, oils...
When you first get a crystal you want clean it of dust and/or dirt. Washing it in water and patting it dry will usually work. You will need to do this periodically or frequently depending on how much you use your crystals and for what purposes. If you massage or heal with your healing stones, for example, you will want to clean it after each use.
You clear your closet of old clothes that do not fit. You bag things to give away or toss. This effort makes room for new things! In essence you are clearing your closet of unwanted energy.
You also clear or cleanse your crystal of negative or unwanted energy. After purchasing or receiving a crystal, you want to establish ownership by erasing or clearing any energy your crystal picked up on its way to you. You want to remove from it the vibrations of all those who have handled them. It's not because those vibrations are necessarily bad, but because your crystals must be attuned to your vibrations.
Once your closet if clean, cleared and empty, it is ready to be filled with positive energy and for some new purchases.
In the same way, when your stone is cleared and empty it needs to be charged with new clean energy. Charging a crystal is like recharging a battery. Some ways we humans recharge ourselves are by:
- Taking a vacation
- Watching the sunset
- Eating a healthy meal
- Taking a nap
- Reading a book
- Listening to music...
Get the idea?
"Charging" crystals is the opposite of "clearing" crystals. When charging crystals, you connect with the energy quality you would like to be contained in your crystals and transfer those energies into them.
Clearing or cleansing crystals empty it of energies and they may feel inactive, empty, and dull. Whereas charging a crystal restores its inherent ability to hold, channel, focus and increase energy. It makes the crystal full in energy again.
Crystals carry a set of instructions or programs, just as a new personal computer contains some programs upon purchase. But just like your PC, you may also add your own programs to your crystal once you get it home.
You create and add your program with an intention for that crystal.
So to conclude, our closet analogy...
Say you purchase a new pair of jeans, when you first try them on and looked at the mirror in the fitting room, you think to yourself, these jeans make me look sexy, lean, and attractive -- and are perfect for a fun night out! You have just "programmed" your intent for those jeans.
In contrast, when you look in the mirror at a new power suit you just tried on, you might think, this is the perfect suit for that upcoming job interview or meeting. It says career success! So your intent (or program) for this outfit is quite different than the one for the new jeans.
In a similar manner, you want to create an intent or “program” for a given stone.
