What to say when setting intentions with crystals
To know what you want in life or what you could program your crystal with, you can ask yourself those questions:
What is important to me?
This is probably the most powerful question you can ask yourself. If you can answer this, you will probably find what your goal is.
Write down 5 things that are important to you like health, love, or happiness for example. You can also write things that you are grateful for. Your intention should align with your values in life. Take your time to define your intention and choose something that is really important to you and that fits your personality.
How can I get closer to my dream life?
Think about what aspects of your life you’d like to improve. Do you want to improve your social life? Get a better job? Or improve your relationships? Use your core values to guide you.
How can I be a better person?
When you decide to set an intention, it means you have decided to change yourself in some way. Be clear about what you want. Ask yourself how you can improve your life and be a better person. Whether you need to let go of anger, become a better listener, or accept responsibility, define a plan to get you closer to your true self.
Once you’ve chosen your intention you can program your crystal by saying ‘I program this crystal for ———‘ and fill in the blank with your intention.
