Every so often it’s beneficial to recharge crystals and release negative energies they may have picked up during their use. It gives us a moment to release anything in the past that no longer serves us and set a new intention for our crystals to represent. I especially love to cleanse my crystals during a full moon when the feminine, healing energy is strongest. There are few different ways you can do this, all equally great. The method you choose is entirely up to you.
This is my favorite way to cleanse my crystals because of the healing energies given off by the moon. Once a month when the moon is full I’ll place my crystals under its light and ask them to be cleansed while creating a new intention. This helps me set a motive for myself during the full moon as well, so whenever I use the crystals it will bring me back to that purpose.
Using the sun’s powerful, masculine energy is another great way to cleanse your crystals. Ask for the strength to remove negative energies from you and your crystals, then set your positive intention. The only thing you have to be careful of is certain crystal’s colors fading over time, such as citrine.
If you’re lucky enough to live close to the ocean, this is a very restorative method of cleansing your crystals. As you might know, the ocean possesses strong healing abilities, especially for our emotions. Take a trip to your local beach with your crystals and one by one dip them into the ocean while releasing the negative, then set a positive intention.
If you don’t live near an ocean but still want to cleanse your crystals in water, homemade salt water works just fine. This is perhaps the easiest method of cleansing your crystals since all it requires is sea salt and water, which most of us have on hand. Simply mix the sea salt and water in a bowl and submerge your crystals while cleansing them of negative energies and replacing them with the positive energy surrounding your intention.
This is another one of my favorite ways to cleanse crystals, it’s how I cleanse all of my crystal jewelry orders before sending them out to their new homes. You can purchase a sage bundle at your local crystal or metaphysical shop. Then just light the tip, the way you would incense, until it’s smoking. Run your crystal through the line of smoke and replace the negative energies with positive ones while setting your intention.
