I was wondering if you could help me with a beautiful Clear Quartz Star of David crystal I purchased a couple of years ago (not from you of course). I really love the crystal, but from the moment I received it, I felt as if it does not want to be in my presence because from the first time I held it literally jumped out of my hand. I tried setting it in the sun, smudging it, and even setting it outside under the full moon for clearing, but I have had no luck. So now I keep it on top of my dresser because I don't want to drop it again (it's already chipped from so many droppings). I even thought of taking it outside and burying it in the ground and forgetting about it, but that is not why I bought it. I really would appreciate any information you can give me to help me be able to "handle" this crystal.
Good Morning Sandra,
Once the crystal was cleansed, did you program it at all (share your intent with the crystal, how you wanted to work with it and why)? When you place your intent into the crystal, it is sort of like being on the same page as to how you want to work with the crystal and how you want it to work with you. When programming a crystal with your intent, be very still, sit down on the floor, and state your intent in a very specific way. Be very clear and precise. Make sense?
Let me ask this — when you saw the crystal and purchased the crystal, what was your reasoning for doing so? For instance, in your email you said, "That is not why I bought it." Think deeply on why you did buy it. Did you share this with the crystal when you received it?

And then, sometimes, it just is not time to work with a specific crystal. It is possible that maybe this is the case, for now. It happens. One day, when it is time, you will pick up the crystal and do wonderful work together :)
I asked a mentor of mine what he would do and we agree on the following suggestion: sit in silence (preferably on a carpeted floor which will help to keep the chipping to a minimum:), holding the crystal with both hands, and simply ask it how you are to work with it. Whatever comes into your mind, be it a picture, a voice, a thought — listen and trust the information. I have a feeling the crystal is waiting on you to make a connection so it can share its information with you :)
I think this will help you and your beloved crystal to connect and work together in wonderful ways.
With love and crystal blessings,
