Our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed and become unbalanced which makes us sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibration, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as constant negative thought patterns and suppressing emotions.
In order to maintain positive energy for our crystals to perform at their best, it's important to make sure they are properly cleansed, charged and activated.
Crystals can pick up negative energies, it is important when you first obtain a crystal and even after you have been using it that it is cleansed. Before it arrives at your home, crystals pass through many hands absorbing different energies that could affect your own balance. There are a number of cleansing methods, our top 3 are listed below. Depending on whether your crystal is raw or polished and also which type of crystal, you should be careful and choose an appropriate cleansing method.
Hold your crystal under a stream of water such as a river, waterfall, or tap for a few minutes.
Leave your crystal to soak in seawater or water mixed with salt. Fill a glass bowl and leave the crystal for anywhere between 1-24 hours, then rinse.
Pass your crystal through the rising smoke of sacred herbs such as sage, cedar and lavender or incense sticks.
It is important that the crystals you use are charged when you first buy them and regularly for them to perform at their best. With experience, you’ll be able to feel whether or not your crystals need charging. Some crystals once cleansed feel ‘raring to go’, others still feel ‘flat’, like they need something else.
- Best results, put your crystals out during the Full Moon, New Moon
- Recharge under the sunlight
- Place your crystals on top of a larger crystal cluster or a crystal platter to recharge. The best crystals to use as a charging station are Selenite and Clear Quartz.
By setting our crystals with positive intentions, we are manifesting the world to return to us the positive life experiences that we seek.
- Sit quietly holding your crystal, relax and initiate circular breathing.
- Set an intention for your crystal silently or aloud. (eg. I am grounded to mother earth and divinely connected to my highest self with white golden light surrounding me’)
- Remember, what we think or believe about ourselves and the world, becomes our reality.
