What is programming a crystal and how do you program a crystal? Are there any crystals that should not be mixed together? Thank you for your time.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your questions about programming crystals and which crystals shouldn’t be mixed together.
When you program a crystal, you are putting your intention for its use into the crystal. This can be done several ways and here is a link to some articles on the subject. Programming crystals makes them much more effective than just holding it or wearing it and hoping it works. The most effective programs are ones that align with the crystal energy’s natural tendencies. Clear Quartz, for example is the most versatile crystal and can be programmed for practically any healing purpose. Here is a link to our metaphysical guide to give you some examples of what I mean by the crystal’s tendencies.
Now, about mixing crystals…it’s not that they don’t get along exactly, it’s more than some crystal combinations will enhance each other more than others. From a purely practical standpoint, crystals with lower Moh’s hardness ratings (like 5 and below) shouldn’t be stored with other crystals because they are likely to scratch or chip. As for working with multiple crystals, I would recommend working with only one at a time, for several weeks, at least until you become very familiar with their individual energies and their effect on you. That way, you will be more accurately able to judge each crystal’s effectiveness in healing you.
I hope this information has been helpful to you. And of course, if you have any further questions regarding crystals or crystal healing, please feel free to contact us again.
