Natural Crystal Cleansing
Crystals hold incredible power for healing, cleansing, and manifesting. Each stone holds it’s own energy and universal properties that have the ability to adorn, heal, protect, and transform. Some are wonderful for protecting, others for stimulating transformations, embarking on spiritual journeys, or grounding down to the physical world.
Crystals absorb energy, which means that they are very effective at soaking up vibrations - both negative and positive - from the air and the people around them. When you are first given a crystal, it carries the energies of all the people who have handled it and all the places it has been before. Because of this, crystals need cleansing, recharging, activating, and deactivating in order to vibrate at their highest capacity.
Here are 4 natural ways that you can cleanse, recharge, and activate your crystals!
Place your crystals under cool running water to help cleanse and purify them. If you have a basin of fresh rain water to cleanse them in, that's even better! Dipping your crystals in the ocean can also have a very purifying effect. Make sure that the crystals you cleanse this way are not damaged by water, such as very soluble stones.
Moon and Sunlight
Moon and sunlight have incredible recharging energies that can bring life back into your crystals. Placing your crystals under a full moon allows them to open up and take in all the new high vibrational frequencies and shifts that have taken place during that moon phase. Notice how your gems shine a little brighter after they’ve been out in the sun or under the moon light.
There are a few powerful crystals that will clear the negative or unwanted energies from other stones. Try placing your desired crystals next to or on quartz crystal clusters, amethyst clusters, carnelian, kyanite, and selenite from anywhere of 1 to 2 days.
Crystals can also be cleared with flower water. Soak your crystals in water with the petals of rose, honey suckle, orange blossoms, jasmine or any of your other favorite flowers for 24 hours. Pure rosewater is also a beautiful way to cleanse your stones.
