7 ways to cleanse and charge your crystals
Cleansing and charging crystals is an important step in using them for healing, meditation, or any other purpose. Crystals can absorb negative energy and lose their power over time, so it's important to cleanse and charge them regularly.
There are many ways to cleanse and charge crystals, and the method you choose will depend on your personal preference and the type of crystal you are working with.
Here are Retrealm’s top 7 ways to cleanse and charge your crystals:
One popular method of cleansing crystals is by using water. Simply hold the crystal under running water for a few minutes, making sure to direct the water flow over all surfaces of the crystal.
This method is effective for most crystals, but some types of crystals, such as Selenite, Malachite, and Azurite should not be placed in water.
Another method of cleansing crystals is by using salt. Fill a bowl with salt and bury your crystal in the salt for at least 24 hours.
The salt will absorb any negative energy from the crystal. Be sure to rinse the crystal with water after this method as salt can be abrasive for some crystals.
Smudging is another popular method for cleansing crystals. You can use sage or any other herbs to cleanse the crystals.
Simply hold the crystal in the smoke of the burning herb, making sure to direct the smoke over all surfaces of the crystal. This method is also effective, but if the crystal is not safe to be exposed to heat, this method is not recommended.
Cleansing crystals with sunlight or moonlight is another popular method. Place the crystals in a location where they will be exposed to sunlight or moonlight for a few hours.
The sunlight or moonlight will help to purify and energise the crystals. This method is also effective, but if the crystal can be damaged by UV rays, this method is not recommended.
Once you have cleansed your crystal, it's time to charge it. One popular method for charging crystals is by placing them on a piece of Selenite, Amethyst or Clear Quartz.
Selenite, Amethyst, and Clear Quartz are all crystals that are known to have powerful energy-cleansing and charging properties. Simply place the crystal on top of the Selenite, Amethyst or Clear Quartz for a few hours.
Another method for charging crystals is by burying them in soil. This method is particularly effective for crystals that are associated with the earth element, such as Hematite or Black Tourmaline. Simply bury the crystal in the soil for a few hours.
You can also charge crystals by holding them in your hand and visualising white light or healing energy flowing into the crystal. This method is effective, but it requires a certain level of visualisation skills.
There are many ways to cleanse and charge crystals. The method you choose will depend on your personal preference and the type of crystal you are working with. It is important to cleanse and charge your crystals regularly to ensure they are working at their full potential.
Remember to always handle your crystals with care and to never cleanse or charge them with methods that can damage them.
