I've read that Kyanite aligns all chakras but does it cleanse and balance them too? If not, do any stones exist that do all three?
It is said to do that, yes - sometimes, shockingly - immediately upon using.
Labhrain, have you read the Kyanite thread from the Crystal Study Groups sticky, at the top of the index for the crystal subforum? If not, here it is! I hope you will add your experiences with the stone to this existing thread
Can anyone tell me whether Kyanite needs to be programmed?
Oh wow... This is awesome!! Thanks ever so much. Blessings xxNo crystal "needs" to be programmed. They exist just fine without us. But if you do program a crystal it creates a tighter bond and can better assist you grow in the specific area that you desire. If you meant to ask should you cleanse Kyanite, then the answer is yes, just not as often as other crystals. Since it transmutes negative energy it is essentially "self-cleaning" but I think it's a good idea to cleanse it from time to time just in case. Also, cleanse it when you first come in contact with it.
There is a great spread on this site by DesertDream that can show you how your crystal wants to work with you and how you can program it to get the full potential of it:
