Crystals are more than a type of rock or mineral. That's why it is very important to take care of them and their precious energy. The first step to follow after bringing your new crystals home is to cleanse them energetically, since they can absorb different energies on their way from the mine, other people, or the environment. It is also necessary to cleanse them regularly as you use them.
There are many cleansing methods, below are some of the different ways you can choose from:
Run them under clean, running water, visualizing any negative energy leaving the crystals, ocean water or fresh stream work very well too. Crystals come from nature so they love to be in their natural habitat.
Smudge them with Sage, Sweet Grass, Palo Santo, or your favorite incense: Burn either of these herbs while passing the crystals through the smoke. Remember to always keep your intention in mind through the entire process. We have a wide selection of these items in our shops that can make this process super easy!
Sunlight or Moonlight: Allow the vibrant energy from the sun to get your crystals from a window or patio. Also during full moon, the powerful energy of the moon will re-charge your crystals in magical ways.
Vibrational Sound: singing bowls, bells and tingshas produce a powerful sound that becomes a very effective way to clean crystals. As the strong vibrations fill the crystal, they will drive out any negative energy, lifting the natural vibration of your crystals and surroundings.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CRYSTALS & HOW TO WORK WITH THEM?
The best way to know what crystal is best for you is by using your intuition. You can hold them in your hands, carry them in your pocket, wallet or purse, place them under your pillow at night for restful dreams, display them at your home or office to bring good energy, or wear them in jewelry to become more balanced, aligned, and to promote an overall wellbeing. It is also believed than meditating with a stone, or carrying it with you, can help you tune in to its energy and help you manifest your deepest wishes and desired intentions.
Crystals are here to help you raise your consciousness. You just need to use your creativity and intuition to get the most benefits out of them.
