It is essential to cleanse and energise your crystals on a regular basis (e.g once a month) - or especially before and after energy healing. Crystals store and retain energy, so it is important that you clear the energy to keep the crystals clear, vibrant and operating at their full potential!
There is no right or wrong way to cleanse and charge your crystals (unless they aren't water safe!). The most important aspect of the process is to set a strong intention of cleansing, then apply your chosen technique!
- Moonlight - Put them outside or on a windowsill on a full moon to recharge.
- Water - Moon water, rain water, running water, salt water - just make sure to check they're water friendly!!!
- Smoke - Smudge them with a sage stick, palo santo or an insence stick.
- Fire - use a candle for a quick cleanse by fire!
- Bury them - This allows the earth to absorb any unwanted energy and refresh the crystals.
- Cleansing crystal - For example, you can lay your crystals in a selenite bowl, and the selenite can clear the energy of the other crystals.
- Pure sound - The vibration of sound can energetically clean a crystal - try using a sound bowl, gong, voice or tuning fork.
- Visualisation - take a deep breath and blow over the crystal. Imagine that you are clearing away negative energy and repeat.
- Reiki/Healing energy - Just as energetic healing can help to cleanse and energise the human body, it can also be used to cleanse your crystals.
