How to Use Your Crystals
Why do I need to cleanse my crystals and jewelry?We understand that cleaning can be a pain, but as the saying goes, “Clean space, clean mind.” Just as cleaning a cluttered room brightens your outlook, purifying your healing crystals lightens their energy, and ensures that they are vibrating their healing properties at the highest potential.
The reason that crystals are so effective in energy work, is the same reason that cleansing them is essential—crystals pick up energy. Cleansing your crystals resets their energy, so that every time you work with them, you are starting from an energetically clean slate. If you never clean your crystals, they will continue to store energy until they are no longer useful conduits. A towel can wipe a mess clean, but if you never wash the towel, it will begin to add to the mess; crystals are similar. For a crystal to purify your energy, you have to first return the gesture, and cleanse its energy.
How do I go about cleansing my crystals, bracelets and necklaces?There a few different ways that you can set about purifying the energy of your crystals:
- Moonlight Spa: Let your crystals bathe outside in light of the sun or moon for at least 4 hours. Who’s spirit isn’t uplifted by a little rest and relaxation in nature?
- Couple Your Crystal With Selenite or Quartz: Act as a crystal matchmaker and pair your crystal with either a selenite or quartz crystal! Both of these crystals have the rare ability to charge and purify other crystals, without ever losing any of their own energy. Lay your crystal on a piece of quartz or selenite for six hours. After a date with these eligible stones, your crystal will be in high-vibe heaven.
- Smoke It Out: Not only will burning Sage and Palo Santo make your home smell great, they’ll have your crystals feeling great, too. Immerse your crystal with the sacred smoke until your piece becomes energetically still.
- Return to Nature: We could all use the energetic reset that comes with a return to nature. To give your crystal that revitalizing pleasure, place it on the soil or hang your crystal jewelry on the branches of a healthy houseplant for 24 hours.
