PROGRAM A CRYSTAL FOR DREAM INTUITIONS
If you feel like it, program the stone to your specific request before using it. Visit the programming your crystal page for a detailed how-to list on programming a stone. A condensed version focused on programming a stone for dream recall, astral travel, and lucid dreaming is here. Clear the crystal of previous programming or old energies. This can be done by cleansing the crystal thoroughly. If you are short on time, and the crystal has been cleansed recently, simply hold it under running water for a few minutes and ask your higher spirit and angel guides to clear the old programming out of the stone.
First, cleanse your crystal. This can be accomplished by holding it under running water for a few moments as a quick and easy method, or for a more intensive cleansing leave it outside in a bowl of water overnight. Once your chosen dream crystal has been cleansed, meditate with the stone in your hands. It is beneficial to create a calm, serene environment while you are doing this. Some ideas are burning candles or incense, playing a cd of new age music, and smudging your home with sage. Whatever you find peaceful, just make sure you are in a calm, focused state before beginning the programming process. Hold the crystal in your hands and gaze upon it.
As you gaze at the stone, visualize yourself sleeping comfortably in your bed. Envision a soothing blue light encircling you and your entire bed. The blue light is a portal to the dream world. Envision your stone tucked under your pillow or mattress, or sitting on top of your nightstand. The stone is circled in the blue light also. The blue light dream portal is now open to you. With the assistance of your stone, you can travel through the dream portal to the dream world. You can easily pass back and forth, remembering details of this plane and the dream plane.
Now ask your stone to aid you in your dreaming. Ask for increased dream recall, lucid dreaming, astral travel, and guidance in your dreams. Thank your stone for undertaking the task of dream guardian for you. The stone will keep you safe in the dream realms, moving towards your highest purpose, and the knowledge that your higher self wants to share with you.
Seal the intention into your crystal by envisioning a white light surrounding the stone, and emanating from within it. The new vibrations are now stored in the crystal. The dream program will stay until you clear the crystal again.
Every night before you fall asleep, hold the dream stone in your left hand (the left hand is for receiving energies, the right hand is for sending energies) and thank it for aiding you. Say, "Thank you for helping me to remember my dreams tonight. Thank you for helping me receive guidance from my spirit guides in my dreams tonight. Thank you for helping me receive guidance regarding (insert any special issue you are trying to resolve) in my dreams tonight." Hold the dream stone to your third eye for a minute and concentrate your energies on the third eye. Meditate on the energies of your stone. Then place your dream stone near your bed. Common places are under your pillow, under your mattress, under your bed, or on your night stand.
Note: Say the thank you's out loud. There is more power in the human voice than is currently recognized by modern science. Intoning the words starts a vibration that penetrates through to the spirit world. Another tip is to always use a positive affirmation. Instead of saying "Thank you for taking away my bad dreams". "Say Thank you for bringing me joyful dreams tonight."
