From time to time I notice inquiries about cleansing and charging
crystals! Here are some of our favorite techniques, many we have learned
from other healers and crystal healing practitioners.
1. Aromatherapy: Rose Water, lavender water or Sandalwood
water. Mist your stones with these to "clear" them of all
patterns or earlier programming. You can make your own or buy pre-made
brands. Never use synthetic or oil based aromatherapy products on
stones. Only use water based products!
2. Breath: Our breath is a powerful tool for clearing day-to-day
energies from crystals and stones. Just "blow" lightly on a
stone while rotating them in your hand. Visualize a "fresh breath
of air" cleansing away any unwanted energies! The teachers of the
Cabbala have a long tradition of using the breath to cleanse crystals
3. Light: Place stable crystals and stones in a window sill to
energize and cleanse a stone. Avoid placing pale Amethyst, Kunzite, Rose
Quartz and Smoky Quartz in strong light as they may fade. Most other
stones are not susceptible to color change or fading!
4. Sage: Burn sage, myrrh or frankincense for cleansing of larger
specimens or to cleanse an area where many stones & crystals reside.
This is an easy way to clear an entire area. I have large crystal
specimens in my back yard, that we use in healing circles and always
sage them after each use!
5. Intention: Our thoughts, feelings and intentions are very
powerful and potent forces! We have the power through our thoughts, to
program and cleanse the crystals and gemstones we work with. When I
don't have a large specimen of Ruby or Emerald about, I will program a
clear specimen of quartz along with a good quality small Ruby or
Emerald, to assist me. It is a way of accessing the Crystal Matrix
Sources within the Earth!
Happy Spring Crystal Cleaning!
