Crystals hold energy, so when you first get a crystal it is best to “cleanse” them before use. This does not mean that the vibrational energy within the crystal is not valuable without cleansing, but I have found that cleansing my crystals regularly brings out the best quality of experience in crystal therapy. Here are three methods of crystal cleansing routines. There are several different methods for cleansing, these are just three common methods.
Method One: Crystal Cleansing Using Other Crystals and Minerals
This is a very simple method of crystal cleansing. Create a salt bed, and allow your crystals to lie in the salt bed for 24 to 48 hours. This takes away any energy that the crystal matrix might have stored that does not align with the intention associated with your crystal therapy. You can also use black tourmaline which works as an infinite sponge for negative energy, absorbing it. Or you can use onyx which dispels negative energy. With either tourmaline or onyx you may want to put these crystals together for three days to a week for optimal benefit.
Method Two: Crystal Cleansing With Water
I have found that running water works best with this method. You can either find a natural source of water such as a stream or river, or you can use running water in a sink or bathtub. If you choose a natural flowing stream of water the best way to keep your crystals from getting away from you is to get a nut milk bag and dunk the bag for several minutes into the flowing water.
Method Three: Crystal Cleansing With the Earth
This method is similar to using other crystals and minerals as a means for cleansing. To cleanse crystals with the earth you simply bury the crystals under a plot of sand or dirt and leave them there overnight. Burying your crystals in the earth naturally grounds them, and any negative energy or intention that the crystal may have picked up will be drawn into the earth and cleansed. Using this method is also a great way to charge the crystal with positive healing and grounding energy.. We will discuss charging crystals in a future blog.
These are by no means a complete list of crystal cleansing routines. It is best to find the method that works for you. Again remember that crystals respond to intention. They can certainly aid us in discovery and assist us in bringing about change, but the reality is that if we remain unwilling to change in certain areas of our lives the crystals themselves will have little effect. It is important with all healing practices that you take a holistic approach, and adopt methods that assist you in many ways. Crystal energy is often subtle, but when someone aligns their intention to it through action it can create wonderful results. My prayer is that each person reading this article will find the strategies that work best for them to bring healing to themselves and therefore the planet.
I look forward to speaking with you!
