In life, intention is everything. Even when we make mistakes, the intentions behind our deeds can either make or break us, which is why it is so important to look within ourselves and understand or change what is driving us. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, losing our sense of self can be very easy, and you might not even realize it. This is why meditation and mindfulness are two essential skills when harnessing the power of healing crystals.

Setting intentions with crystals is a well-known and common practice. Since this practice dates back to ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, it has seen many changes and cultural revivals. All healing crystal experts agree that setting intentions with crystals is a very personal act, and most of them say that there are no hard and fast rules to it. It all depends on how you want to do it.

As a basic guideline, before setting your intentions, it is ideal to first cleanse the crystal of any negative or unwanted energy it may be holding on to. This can be achieved by various means, such as leaving the crystal in the moonlight or bathing it in saltwater. Once you've done that, your crystal can now be infused with the charged energy of your intentions so that it may amplify its benefits towards that particular part of your life.

A good way of setting intentions with your crystal is to hold it in your hand while you envision your goals for it. For example, if you're looking for love, you can visualize spending time with your soulmate and turn that pretty thought into energy flowing from you into the crystal. When doing this, it is vital to have a clear mind void of anything else, so the crystal doesn't absorb energy you don't want it to. Meditation is often recommended for this.

Another good step is to recite your goals out loud three times as you envision them. Doing this helps center your thoughts which makes your intentions more transparent and more powerful. Interestingly, the number three represents action, and that is precisely what you want your crystal to do. Rituals like this one can be beneficial in connecting your crystal with your intentions. Visualization, meditation, and recitation are some practices that can make up your own personal ritual that resonates with your chakras.

Activation of the crystal is the last step. Much like humans, crystals seem to benefit from social interactions. Many people like to sing or speak to their crystals in order to activate their vibrations. For a more powerful effect, you can also take your crystal outside to gather natural energy.

Now once you've cleansed, connected, activated, and set intentions with your crystal, it is time to figure out where to keep it so you can be affected by its aura exactly when you need to be.  A good example would be to keep it next to your telephone if you are expecting a phone call related to your intentions or to wear it as jewelry wherever you go so that you are constantly under its influence.

Certain crystals naturally have properties that boost specific energies. The self-love promoting rose quartz could be worn as a necklace over your heart or the relaxing amethyst could be worn while laying down. Wearing a restoring malachite in your hand while you unload your feelings into your diary is also a great idea, while success-bringing Citrine could be worn while in your workplace.

Crystals are a means of managing energy so that it can harmonize with our everyday lives. This is why it is so important to take these measures to maintain their beneficial vibrations. All in all, setting intentions with a crystal is by far the most important step in making the energies around us work in our favor. If nothing else, these rituals increase our mindfulness which is critical to the development of the self.
