Do you have a specific goal or objective in mind? At Jewels & Gems, we absolutely love carrying crystals with us every day! We see crystal healing as a tool for empowerment and self-development, to help us reach our goals, and wearing them as jewelry is one of the most effective ways to do so. We believe that jewelry is not just a lovely accessory, but it's also a wonderful way to remind us of what we wish to manifest and being encouraged by the gemstones' healing properties throughout the day.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HOLD AN INTENTION?
To make it simple, an intention is a purpose or a desire that operates like a magnet, attracting everything you need to make your intention a reality. To work with your crystal in a more effective way, we suggest to program it with a goal and give it a purpose by stating what do you want assistance with at this moment in time. Whether your intention is short or long-term focused, you must remind yourself of it frequently in order for it to be clearly expressed in your life. This is why crystal jewelry can be a very potent tool to use in everyday life since it is here to remind you of your intention every time you stare at it or touch it.

HOW TO PROGRAM YOUR JEWELRY
Here is an example about how we like to work with crystals through programing:
~ The first step is to make a decision on what is most essential to you right now. What are you in desperate need of right now? Do you want to build your self-esteem, increase your love for yourself, or improve your ability to stand up for your beliefs and dreams? Take out a piece of paper and a pencil, and write down 3-5 things that are essential to you right now in your life.
~ Then, we want to take a moment to consider which aspects of our life requires improvement. Ask yourself: What do you wish to improve right now in your life? Visualize how you want your life to be and how it would feel if you had already accomplished your goal. You may go back to the points you wrote down earlier and choose a specific one to focus.
~ It's very important to be as specific as you can in this process. Pick a crystal that matches your intention and be crystal clear about your goals. Hold your piece of jewelry / crystal in your hands, close your eyes to visualize and focus on your intention for a minute. To program your crystal with the intention, simply say something like: "Thank you for assisting me with what I require assistance with", and say out loud the intention you are currently holding in your mind.
With the support of your crystal jewelry and your intention, you're ready to enhance your life. We recommend to wear your jewelry frequently so that you can be reminded of your goal and benefit from its crystal healing properties. Whenever you're not wearing your crystal jewelry, be sure to cleanse and purify it in order to remove any stagnant energy it may be holding.
