How to Cleanse & Charge Your Crystals

 

This guide is to inform you ways of cleansing your crystals. You may be wondering first off what are crystals, and what could they do for you?

Crystals have been used throughout history for healing, they have energy properties that can work within our own energy field. Everything holds energy, and because crystals come from this sacred earth they hold energy that can raise our personal vibrational frequency. Crystals work with human energy to move, absorb, direct and diffuse intended energy within ones self.

Here is a list of some benefits of crystals:

Relieve and release stress

Amplify your intentions

Prevent energy depletion

Restore the energy structure in your mind

Stimulate healing, personal growth and spiritual development

Stimulate harmonious brain activity

Create carrier waves of pure vibrant energy

Ground you and connect you to Earth

Transmute unwanted information that may cause blockage in your subconscious mind

When you first purchase your stones or crystals it is important to clear or cleanse them. When they are on the shelf in store they are being touched by people who hold many different types of energy, some energy of which may not be best intended for you. You want to make your crystals yours and yours only.

So whether you have just cleared your crystal and you’re ready to charge it or you may have had it for a period of time and feel they have lost their touch and need a recharge.

Now let’s move on to cleansing, why cleanse? Well, our energy field determines how we act and react to situations and the people around us. Because we are putting our energy out into the world and interacting with day to day people it is possible for us to pick up energy that is not intended for us. After picking these energies up, we work with our crystals and naturally administer the energy we picked up onto our precious gems, furthermore, creating a dense energy field for our crystals and lowering our vibration (or aura).

 

Ways to Cleanse Your Crystals:

 

  1. White Sage I think sage is the most commonly known tool to rid any low vibrations and negative energy it is used to cleanse any person, place or thing and also kills any bacteria in the air. So now you may walk into a holistic shop and find the section where sage is and realize there are different types of sage so let’s go over some of the different combinations and what they are best used for. (These are three of the most common I come across) Mugwort & White sage bundle- this is good for clearing and setting the intention for astral projection and travel meditation. Juniper & White sage bundle- The Juniper berries in this bundle hold energetic and physical detoxifying properties for centering one’s self. Juniper spreads protection, positivity, and makes room for healing space when the negative energy is removed. Dragons Blood & White sage bundle- Promotes fierce protection, and amplifies your personal power and subconscious intentions.

Directions: Hold at about a 45-degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for a few seconds then wave to let out the flame, now state out your affirmation or intention for what you are clearing.

 

  1. Palo Santo

Or “holy wood” in English is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of south America. Palo Santo is traditionally used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, and inflammation. Burning this wood keeps mosquitoes and other insects away. Palo Santo also comes as an Essential Oil for aromatherapy, which explains why this is one of my favorite ways to recharge my crystals because of its light peaceful scent.

Directions: Hold wood at about a 45-degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for a few seconds then wave to let out the flame, and state out your affirmation, or intentions for programming your crystal.

 

  1. Salt Water and Sunlight (Also a charging method, do not use this method for jewelry)

Bringing your crystals to the beach is nice because not only are you are in a peaceful space with sounds of the earth surrounding you, but also because you are utilizing the sun which is the purest light. Crystals are the physical representation of our pineal gland which our third eye (being light sensitive) responds to the most, which is why sun gazing is important. Although this option Is wonderful you must be aware of the crystals that do not agree with too much salt water and sunlight because of their properties, some crystals can fade in color such as amethyst and rose quartz, please look into this before exposing your gems into this atmosphere.

Directions: Lay out your crystals to absorb the radiating suns energy, and for the salt water simply run your crystals under the water and state your affirmation, and intentions for programing your crystal.

 

  1. Moonlight(Full moon; Also a charging method)

Most people enjoy leaving their gems under the moonlight to cleanse, others may find this to be more of a charging method to give them a more powerful touch. The ideal time to put them out is just after the sun has set. Place them in a bowl or on a natural surface allowing the moon light to hit it directly. As you set each stone down state your intention or something you would like to release into the full moon. (I will go more into detail with this because I will be sharing my personal full moon ritual guide soon.)

 

  1. Sound

The frequency of a crystal singing bowl, Tibet bowl, and tuning forks amp up your crystals energy. Although you may not own any of these bowls, you could bring them to a sound healing class to feel its powerful energy. (Which by the way I REALLY recommend attending at least one sound healing class, I find it peacefully guides me into my meditative state much faster without distractions. It will change your life.)

Cleansing yourself

Just as cleansing your crystals is essential, it is important to keep up with your energetic field and get rid of low vibrations that do not serve your greatest good. Our energetic fields attract every experience into your life. While cleansing yourself using sage or Palo Santo be sure to either start from your head and work your way down or your feet working your way up. My favorite way would be to start by my feet, getting smoke into all of the crevices of my body (temple) and essentially opening up my chakras from my root to my crown. Again, while doing this state an affirmation. Ex: “I call on the love and light of my Source (or God, Universe) please rid any negative energy from my body and leave only the lightest and brightest energy that serves my greatest good and higher purpose.”

You can also cleanse yourself by taking salt baths using Pink Himalayan salt or Epson Salt.

My favorite bath to do is a Pink Himalayan sea salt bath with rose pedals, fresh lavender, rose quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst crystals. While preparing my bath I state an intention for example: “In this moment I am setting the intention through all bodies, programs, implants, frequencies, vibrations, and patterns to cleanse my precious divine temple and rid any vibrations or low energy that do not serve my greatest good, and so it is.”

I hope this guide was helpful to you. I want to thank you and welcome you to this loving community.
