Crystals to Cleanse and Charge Your Spirit For the Holidays
With the holiday season in full swing, it’s important to set the tone for your spirit. Instead of carrying stress into the new year, make the decision to stay cleansed, calm and charged up all month long! Energy tools like crystals are crucial for maintaining a healthy mindset. Not only do they encourage you to release tension, they also help you to program your goals—like sticking to a budget or taking time to relax. To keep your mindset from veering into panic-mode, check in with your spirit using crystals and energy tools. The holiday’s can be stressful, but they don’t need to be. A small investment of time devoted to your energy can have a significant impact. These are some of the specific tools and practices that I use for a cleansed and vibrant spirit, any time of year!
Selenite Lamp for Your Sacred Space
I talk a lot about having a sacred space in your home where you can go to unwind, meditate and collect your thoughts. A Selenite Lamp is the perfect addition to this space because it creates a cleansed and uplifting environment. Similar to lighting a candle in your sacred space, turning on your selenite lamp sends a signal to your spirit that you are beginning a meditative practice. This helps you transition from a long day’s energy to a state of peaceful awareness.
In this time when daylight is sparse, it doesn’t hurt that selenite lamps bring in light. As a stone that cleanses and recharges energy, selenite can transform dark spaces with its bright, joyful energy. When you go into your sacred space, you’re looking to release negativity and elevate your mind. Use this selenite lamp to feel an immediate and positive shift in your mood.
Copper Pyramid + Selenite Charging Plate for Increasing Power
A Copper Charging Pyramid on top of a Selenite Charging Plate is a powerful combination for immersing your home and crystal jewelry in powerful vibes. As the selenite plate works to purify the energy of whatever you set on top of it—be it small crystals or your crystal jewelry—the copper charging pyramid intensifies that energy, and emits it into your space through a focused point. You can either have it in your sacred space, or in an area of your home that you’re looking to enhance with a boost of energy.
If you’re looking to increase the power of your intention, manifest it with the copper pyramid. Because copper is one of the best conductors of energy, it will carry the energy of your intention and send out in the atmosphere of your home. This helps you to keep your goal in mind, even as you recharge within the home. Simply write down your intention on a slip of paper, state the intention aloud or in your head three times, and then set the paper underneath the copper pyramid.
Rainbow Quartz for Programming Intentions
Have this high-vibing stone in hand to empower your spirit with cleansed and focused energy. Full of rainbows, a Rainbow Quartz Point is the ideal crystal to use when programming your spirit with positive intentions. Since quartz amplifies energy and carries the power of intentions, use it to enhance the energy that you’re trying to create before the end of the year.
Sage Stick for Cleansing the Home + Spirit
If ever there were a time to cleanse the energy of your space and spirit, it’s during the holiday’s. With people visiting, financial stress and chaotic time frames, the home can collect a lot of excess or negative energy in this time. Cleansing with a Sage Smudge Stick removes the stagnant energy that’s settled into your space. Use this medicinal plant for a fresh circulation of energy that will uplift the atmosphere of your home.
Ideally, even when temperatures get icy, you’ll want to open up the windows for a bit while burning your sage stick. As the sage smoke exits the home, it takes the old energy out with it. Plus, the open windows will allow for a cold breeze to usher in new energy from outside that will leave your home feeling energetically lighter.

No matter what practice you engage in, whether it’s purifying with sage or relaxing by the light of a selenite lamp, the important thing is to take time for yourself. Holiday plans, gifts and traditions are part of what makes this time of year special—stressing about them is not. Take out the worry by cleansing and recharging with a spiritual practice, and you’ll have the perfect recipe for a happy holiday.
