Cleansing your crystals is very important. They should be cleansed when you first get them and also after each use. Crystals absorb energy from their surroundings, and also from anyone or anything that has touched them. Over time, they can lose their sparkle, brightness and even color, becoming dull and lackluster. When you see these changes in your crystals, you know that it is time to cleanse them to refresh their natural energies.
Here is the process in which we like to cleanse our crystals. Remember that intention is key. As you cleanse your crystals, focus on the task in hand and in your mind ask that all the old and negative energies be released.
- Run your crystal under water, while holding the intention that it is being cleansed and purified. Holding your gemstones under a running stream of water is ideal, but running tap water works just fine. For delicate gemstones, you can place them in uncooked brown rice overnight.
- Place your crystal on the grass, under the sun for several hours to re-energize the crystal and bring it back to its full vibrance. You can also bury it in the Earth’s soil.
- For smaller crystals and tumbled stones, re-charge and re-energize them by placing them on a larger Quartz Crystal Cluster. A Quartz Crystal Cluster radiates enormous amounts of positive energy due to its many points. It absorbs all the negative energy and helps to activate and magnify your intention for your stones. After your smaller stones have been cleansed, don’t forget to cleanse your Quartz Crystal Cluster. Repeat steps #1 and #2 with your cluster.
- Immerse your crystals and tumbled stones in the smoke of a burning Sage stick or Palo Santo stick until it begins to vibrate with energy.
We also like to use the power of sound to clear and cleanse the energy of our crystals. In our showroom, we constantly have Tibetan gong and Singing Bowl music playing to keep our crystals energized and vibrant. If you have a Singing Bowl at home, the sound and vibrations created by it will help to clear your crystals on any unhelpful and negative vibrations. We have a number of energy tools on our website that can help you cleanse and clear your crystals and home.
