The term “Conscious Intent” used in the context of working with crystals – entails one projecting and focusing their intention into the crystal being worked with. The crystal receives your intent as instructions and then executes those instructions to the absolute maximum of its capabilities.
For what and How Does One Use it?
An example of this could be cleansing a crystal using conscious intent. One simply needs to have the intention of the crystal being cleansed and project that intent to the crystal itself. The crystal will then cleanse and reset its energy. You yourself may use what ever imagery/visualization/thought form you like to get your intention across to the crystal – For instance you may visualize the crystal having a waterfall cascading over it. Crystals are willing co-creators/partners and will happily work with any format of “intention” you may choose to give it.
