- Keep your chosen gemstone within your auric field for long periods of time. You can accomplish this by carrying it in a pocket or hand or by wearing it in a ring or other ornament. You can also place appropriate stones in work area, near bed, etc.
- “Programming” a gemstone is important. You want to focus on your need, visualize yourself attaining it and then project that image of yourself into the stone. The stone will “save your programmed image” and help attract to you what you need to attain your goals.
- Periodically, or if you have had a particularly difficult day, your gemstones should be cleared of any negativity which they may have collected. Cover with salt overnight, hold under running water or in sea water for a few minutes or hold in incense smoke while visualizing the dissipation of negative energy.
