Cleansing your crystals is important to remove any negative energy they may have absorbed.
There are several methods for cleansing crystals, including using salt water, smoke, sound, or sunlight.
Salt water can be made by mixing salt and water, and then immersing your crystals in the solution for a few hours. However, some crystals are sensitive to salt and should not be cleansed in this way.
Smoke cleansing involves burning herbs such as sage or palo santo and passing the crystals through the smoke. This method is popular in many cultures and is also known as smudging.
Sound cleansing can be done by using singing bowls, chimes, or other instruments to create a vibration that will help to clear any negative energy from the crystals.
Sunlight cleansing involves placing your crystals in direct sunlight for a few hours. However, some crystals may fade or crack in direct sunlight, so it's important to research which crystals are safe for this method.
Charging your crystals after cleansing is important to restore their energy and maximize their healing potential.
There are several methods for charging crystals, including placing them in sunlight or moonlight, using other crystals, or intention setting.
Placing your crystals in moonlight is a popular method for charging, as it's believed that the energy of the full moon can amplify the crystal's energy.
Intention setting involves holding the crystal and visualizing the energy you want it to absorb, such as love, abundance, or healing. This can be a powerful way to charge your crystals and enhance their energetic properties.
