Check out the Majestic Intentions Guide to Cleansing and Charging Your Crystals below!
My absolute favorite method to cleansing my healing crystals is rain water. I started off a few years back collecting rain water on my back patio with a ceramic bowl from my kitchen. Also, if I knew rain was coming I would go and place my crystals outside before it started to pour. The healing properties of water alone are amazing and my crystals always feel so much better afterwards. Don't you feel so refreshed and re-energized after a shower, bath, or dive in the pool? Our crystals are vibrating beings too and appreciate a energizing experience.
But be cautious, certain crystals should not be placed in water as they will start to dissolve. In their raw form; Selenite, Kyanite, Tourmaline, Azurite, Angelite, Kunzite, Amber, Turquoise and Red Coral.
Charging your crystals underneath the light of the sun or moon is another amazing method. You will definetly be able to feel the energy after a good charge. Since the Sun can help provide humans & plants energy then of course it can help your crystals. Unfortunately, it is recommended that the following crystals not be charged in the sun more than fifteen minutes due to the color being subject to fading: Any crystal in the Quartz family, Aquamarine, Apatite, Calcite, Celestite, Kunzite, Opal, Sapphire, Topaz, & Turquoise.
Moonlight Cleansing & charging is good for all of you crystal babies. You do not have to wait for the moon to be full, but of course that it when the energy is most potent. You can place them on your window sill, in your backyard, or anywhere outside where you feel they can be comfortable.
Your crystals come from Mother Earth, so what better way to refresh them then placing them back into their original home. You can go outside and place them in the grass, or dig up a hole and place them inside. The time frame is up to you and your intuition. Another idea, if ts too cold is to place them inside of your house plants soil if you have any. Once finished, give them a good rinse & they will be ready to work with you again!
Smoke is a quick and efficient way to cleanse your crystals if you are in a rush and need them for a job interview, speech, family visit, etc. Incense smoke is my favorite method since the smoke is calm and smooth. You can also utilize Sage, Rosemary, or any herb bundles smoke that speaks to you. Simply hold the stone over the smoke & cleanse for as long as you like.
Selenite is the only healing crystal that never needs cleansing but has the ability to cleanse others. Cleansing your crystals with Selenite will depend on the form of Selenite you have. If you have a Selenite Tower, a good idea would be to create a grid and surround your Selenite Tower with your crystals. If you have Selenite in sphere form, I would suggest placing all of your crystal inside a bowl or box with the sphere and allowing the energy to cleanse through out. If you have a flat Selenite stick or slab, its always easiest to place your crystals directly on top of them. Whatever feels most comfortable to you, is the best option.
One of the easiest ways for me to cleanse and recharge my stones are copper bowls. Copper helps to clear out negative energy and helps to build a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms. When worn, it helps to awaken and amplify the senses which is why it is such a good tool to use to charge your crystal babies up!
Feathers are known as sacred tools in Native American & South American cultures. Birds are known as vessels to the divine in many cultures, so using feathers to cleanse energy only makes sense. Utilizing the feather in a sweeping motion around the crystal
Setting your intention & then placing the crystal between the palm of your hands is the most intimate form of crystal cleansing. We all have channels of energy inside of our palms and this can help you to connect directly to your stone. Simply set the intention that you would like to cleanse your crystal, place it inside your hands, close your eyes, and focus. Imagine a white light coming from both of your palms, you will start to feel heat and the vibration of the crystal. Continue to do this until you know you have funneled all of the old stagnant energy out.
