cleansing and charging crystals

Why cleansing is important?

Crystals are used by many people to calm their mind, bodies, and souls. Crystals may be believed to transmit natural vibrations into the rest of the world on an energetic level.

Crystals can travel long distances from source to buyer before they are purchased. Every transition exposes the stone’s energy to energies that might be out of alignment with yours.

These stones can be used to heal and absorb the negative energy you are trying to release.

1. 1.

Water can be used to remove any negative energy from the stone and to return it to the earth. While natural running water is the best option, it’s also possible to rinse your stone with tap water.

No matter what water source you have, make sure your stone is fully submerged. When your stone is dry, pat it dry.

Approximate duration:1 minute per stone

This is what you can use it for:Quartz is one example of a hard stone.

This is not the place to use it for:Stones that are soft or brittle, such as selenite and kyanite, can be dangerous.


2. 2. Salt water

Salt has been used throughout history for its ability to absorb negative energy and expel negativity.

Consider collecting fresh salt water if you live near the ocean. Mix a tablespoon of sea salt, rock salt, or table salt in a bowl of water.

Allow your stone to soak for at least a few hours. When dry, rinse and dry.

Approximate duration:Up to 48 Hours

This is what you can use it for:Quartz and amethyst are hard stones.

This is not the place to use it for:Stones that are porous or soft and contain trace metals such as selenite (calcite), halite, calcite and angelite.

3. 3. Brown rice

This can be used to remove negativity from a safe and controlled environment. This method is especially useful for protective stones like black tourmaline.

Fill a bowl with brown rice, and place your stone underneath the grains. After the cleansing, dispose of the rice as soon as possible. The rice has absorbed the energy that you are trying to eliminate.

Approximate duration:24 hours

This is what you can use it for:Any stone

4. 4. Natural light

While ritual cleansing is usually centered around specific points in the lunar or solar cycle, you can cleanse your stone at any time.

Your stone should be set out before it goes to bed and brought in by 11 a.m. This will allow your stone the opportunity to soak in the sun and moonlight.

Exposed to direct sunlight for too long can cause stone’s surface to weather. Make sure you come back in the morning.

Place your stone directly on the ground if you are able. This will allow you to cleanse the earth further. You can ensure that they don’t get disturbed by wildlife and passersby wherever they may be.

Give the stone a quick rinse afterward to get rid of any dirt or debris. Pat dry.

Approximate duration:10-12 hours

This is what you can use it for:Most tumbled stones

This is not the place to use it for:In sunlight, vibrant stones like amethyst are visible; inclement weather may cause damage to soft stones such as celestite and halite.

5. Sage

Sage is a sacred plant with a multitude of healing properties. Smudging your stone can clear unharmonious vibrations from it and restore its natural energy.

These are the things you will need

  • a firesafe bowl
  • Matches or a lighter
  • Sage can be bundled or loose.

If you are unable to smoke outdoors, ensure you’re close to an open window. This will allow smoke and negative energie to disperse.

Once you are ready, light the flame at the tip of your sage. Move the sage to the nondominant side of your hand. Grab your stone with both hands and push it through the smoke.

Allow the smoke to surround the stone for approximately 30 seconds. You can smudge the stone for another 30 seconds if it has been a while since you last cleansed.

Approximate duration:About 30-60 seconds per stone

This is what you can use it for:Any stone


6. 6.

Sound healing allows a single pitch or tone to wash over an area, bringing it into the same vibration as the tone.

This can be accomplished using chanting, singing bowls, a tuning fork, or even a nice bell. It doesn’t really matter which key you use, as long as the sound is loud enough to reach the stone.

This is a great method for collectors with large quantities of crystals that are difficult to inventory or move.

Approximate duration:Take 5-10 minutes

This is what you can use it for:Any stone

7. Use a larger stone

Amethyst geodes and large quartz clusters are great tools for clearing small stones.

Place your stone inside of or on top of any one of these stones. The vibrations of the larger stone are thought to remove inharmonious energies from the resting stone.

Approximate duration:24 hours

This is what you can use it for:Any stone

8. Use smaller stones

Clear quartz, hematite, and carnelian are all said to have an overall clearing effect.

These stones are usually smaller so you might need more than one to clear the other stones.

Place the clearing stones in a small bowl and place the stone you wish to restore on top.

Approximate duration:24 hours

This is what you can use it for:Any stone

9. Breathe

Breathwork is also a great way to cleanse your body.

Start by holding the stone in your dominant palm. For a moment, focus on your intention and inhale deeply through your nostrils.

To bring the stone’s highest vibration, bring it closer to your face. Inhale forcefully through your nose onto the stone and then raise your head.

Approximate duration:About 30 seconds per stone


10. Visualization

This is the most secure way to clear stones. However, some people find it intimidating. It may be easier to direct your energy towards the stone you wish to restore if you are more in touch with yourself.

Spend a few moments to ground your energy and center it. Next, pick up your stone and imagine your hands filled with radiant white light.

This light will surround the stone, allowing it to glow brighter. Imagine the impurities being flushed out of the stone, which will allow the stone to shine brighter and have a renewed purpose.

Keep doing this visualization until the stone’s energy changes.

Approximate duration:About 1 minute per stone

This is what you can use it for:Any stone

How do you program your crystal

Although crystals are said to have innate healing properties, taking the time to set an intention for your stone can help you connect with its energy and restore your own sense of purpose.

It may be comfortable to hold the stone in your hands while you meditate or place it on your third-eye. You can also lay back and allow the stone to rest on the corresponding chakra, or area of body that you wish to work with.

Visualize the energy of the stone merging with yours. Talk to the stone, verbally or silently, and ask for help in your current endeavor.

Thank the stone for its presence then spend a few minutes in meditation.

How do you activate your crystal

A little energetic activation may be beneficial if your stone feels heavier than you expected, or if it has lost its shine.

You can give it your energy by singing, speaking, or even sending it vital life force energy through the breath. It’s possible to make a big difference with just a little interaction!

Consider taking the stone with you if you are planning to go outside. People often find that allowing stones to absorb natural energy from the beach or park has a powerful effect.

An activation grid can be created by surrounding the stone in more energetic stones. You can choose from clear quartz, ruby, apophyllite and selenite as well as kyanite, carnelian, selenite and selenite.

Any stone you like can be used. To ensure that the main crystal can fully absorb their vibrations, make sure you have them completely around it

The bottom line
