Crystals are an amazing source for Manifestation, but it is also important to take special care of our crystalline friends. Here are some of the methods that you can use to Cleanse and Charge your Crystals.
MOONLIGHT – FULL MOON
Usually all crystals enjoy the moonlight and the best time is during a Full Moon. The strong full moon energy lasts for 3 days, so even if you miss the actual day of a full moon, you can catch those moonlight rays on the day before, day of, and day after a full moon. Crystals get the energy even if it is cloudy or raining.
SUNLIGHT: Many crystals love a sun bath, especially ones that are red, orange or yellow (like Carnelian and Sunstone). You can put them out in the sun for a few hours for a cleansing and recharge. However, there are some crystals that fade in sunlight or change color. Typically, these are the pigmented crystals, see-through crystals that have color, like Amethyst or Fluorite (which should be cleansed in moonlight).
Which crystals should avoid Sunlight: These crystals should avoid being placed in sunlight for prolonged periods of time. This list is not exhaustive, but it will give you a good start:
SALT WATER BATH: This is another way you can cleanse your crystals. However, many crystals can be damaged by the salt. So whenever in doubt check with a specialist or use your intuition.
HEALING: You can cleanse and give your crystals an extra little energy boost with healing energy. Simply hold the crystals in between your hands as you and infusing them with the energy.
SAGE AND INCENSE: Sage is another wonderful energy cleanser. You simply run your crystals through the smoke or waft the smoke over your crystals. This method also cleanses any of the areas around your house. If you do not have a stick of sage available incense will do. My personal favorite is rose or sandalwood incense.
