She explains how crystal programming combines the powerful instrument of intention setting with the healing energies of stones. She details how to cleanse and charge your crystals and prepare your own energy field before programming and provides a collection of intention-setting statements and programming recipes for personal healing as well as therapeutic use. Unveiling the light that each crystal radiates vibrationally and spiritually, Sharon reveals how each crystal is a living being that can be awakened to emanate its purest and strongest energy in alignment with specific healing purposes. She explains the dormant state of stones when they are still inside the earth, their activated state when extracted by humans, and their ignited state, when they are called into direct service with a programmed focus, which leads them to unfold their full healing potential. Focusing on 8 key crystals, including rose quartz, amethyst, and citrine, Sharon shows how these 8 stones can combine to form a powerful toolkit with a wide range of healing applications. She provides an in-depth chapter on each of the 8 key crystals, offering deep insight into their energies and healing properties. She also covers more than 60 additional crystals along with guidance on their healing uses and programming potential. Taking your crystal healing experience to a higher level, this guide shows how each crystal has its own life plan just like human beings and when a crystal enters your life it is never by coincidence.
