KARMIC TOOL KIT
Putting the Crystals to Use
One of the simplest means of harnessing the power of crystals and other gemstones is to wear or carry them throughout your day.
STONES FOR DAILY WEAR
Minerals make for attractive jewelry, and even inexpensive tumbled stones can be worn or tucked into a pocket for an effective tool. By first cleansing and programming your daily stone, you are inviting it to co-create in a specific manner on your journey. After a day of hard work, let your crystal clear itself overnight, and restart the process the following day with a new round of cleansing and programming.
To cleanse, hold your crystal comfortably in your preferred hand.Terminated crystals can be gently grasped between the thumb and forefinger. Visualize white light surrounding you, showering down from the heavens and inundating your energy field. With each inhale, envision this light penetrating your being more deeply; with each exhale, release any vibrations that are not in harmony with the energy of purity. After several deep, rhythmic breaths, you should feel at ease and clear. Now inhale deeply and connect to your crystal. Pulse the breath in short, sharp exhalations through your nose, aimed toward the crystal. This breath should be quick and powerful, but it should also be comfortable. Visualize the white light being carried on the breath to the stone; picture it sweeping away any discordant or unnecessary information.
To program your stone, select an intention or goal that you would like to imprint upon it. Examples may include broad topics, such as healing, peace, love, wisdom; or more narrowly focused ideas, such as past life regression, releasing karmic debt, erasing soul contracts. Breathing deeply, imagine inhaling the intention of your program. Let it fill your entire being, until your body, mind, and spirit resonate completely with your intention. You may also like to envision an accompanying symbol, word, or color that represents or supports your goal. Hold the crystal, and fill your lungs as you did in the cleansing process. Mentally and visually connect to your stone before releasing your breath in a pulse through your nose. Picture your breath carrying your intention into the lattice of the crystal.
The possibilities are endless for which stones you can wear and for what purposes. The combinations are up to you, and your unique vibratory signature will lead you toward certain members of the mineral kingdom that are more in tune with you. Generally speaking, those stones that feel most comfortable tend to represent the lessons we are most familiar with in life. Crystals that cause discomfort may not be your first choice, but they offer tremendous healing opportunities. They feel dissonant because we have not yet integrated their message and energy.
With this in mind, it is important to match your intention to your desired effect. In all honesty, wearing an important, lesson-teaching gem will probably not help you at work or while running errands, even if it is helping you evolve spiritually. Wear more comfortable gemstones while you are out experiencing your normal routine; the challenging stones can be saved for home when you feel less vulnerable. Mentally check in with your state of being throughout the day to decide if your chosen gems are still supporting you and offering harmonious guidance. It may be necessary to remove or cleanse a stone as your day progresses.
The safer, more comfortable choices for everyday wear will be explored below. Bear in mind that these suggestions are merely starting points from which your intuition and experience will guide you. Resolving and transmuting causal energy can be slow work, but these stones can encourage you and those around you in your daily progress.
Amethyst is a great stone for everyday wear, as it is gentle, pacifying, and harmonizing. Program it for anchoring the Violet Flame so that it can continually transmute your karma. The Violet Flame will eventually spread through your energy field and begin to heal and alchemize causal patterns.
Dumortierite gently moves us forward in life by teaching us to savor stillness. As much of an oxymoron as that appears to be, dumortierite’s message is one of patience. Since linear time is really an illusion, dumortierite helps us to accept the limitless Now. This can prevent new causal cycles from being conceived.
Kyanite is among the best stones for overall alignment; it has an immediate effect on our nonphysical anatomy, restoring balance to our auric bodies and realigning our chakras. Since it also activates the causal chakra, wearing kyanite fosters insight into the law of cause and effect
that governs the accumulation of karma, both positive and negative.
Leopardskin jasper is arguably my favorite stone of all the causal healers to wear all day long. The more you wear this earthy gemstone, the more deeply penetrating are its effects. It gradually saturates your entire aura and aligns you in the flow of the universe, making it easier to attract what you need into your life. By the same token, it readjusts the causal body so that it harmonizes better in your timeline, which can reset any outstanding or stagnant karmic cycles and prepare them for release.
Chrysotile with Welo opal is a dynamic combination. A pendant made of this serpentine with an accent of precious opal will seek out your soul contracts and burn away any that no longer serve you. The process is gentle, so long as smaller stones are used, and it can also offer assistance to your relationships. Since the soul’s contracts are being continually amended, as you wear this combination it will release any negative karmic ties to people in your life. The result is more freedom and more room to spread love rather than pain.
