How to Cleanse Your Crystals: How to Charge your Crystals.

Crystals are stunning, and they work really well as tools for manifesting your dream life. However, if you want to harness their power on your divine spiritual journey, you can’t just stick them on a shelf and hope for the best.

Crystals vibrate at frequencies that promote healing, aid your spiritual awakening and can be used to attract positivity, money and love into your life. Each crystal offers unique properties that you can take advantage of for your daily meditations.

To get the most out of your crystals, you need to regularly cleanse and charge them so that you can release any negative energy out of them and set your intentions with them. Let’s explore why you should charge your crystals and how you can cleanse them with ease.


Why should you charge your crystals?

When working with crystals, you use some of their energy to manifest intentions and spiritual healing. Over time, your crystals will run out of energy and need to be recharged, restoring your crystals natural vibration and energy.

If you don’t give your crystals this much-needed time to recharge, they won’t work as well for you. Just like you, crystals can’t give out of an empty cup!

Thankfully, charging your crystals isn’t too hard. You can knock out two birds with one stone by using sunlight to cleanse and recharge your crystals concurrently. Leaving them in the sun for just 30 minutes will cleanse negative energies from your crystals and restore their natural energy base, which means you can get back to using your crystals for your healing.

It’s vital that you do your research before charging your crystals in the sun. Many crystals can’t go in the sunlight, including Amethyst, Celestite, Calcite, Citrine, any Quartz, Sapphire and many more. They may lose their color and break when exposed to direct sunlight for too long.

You can also charge your crystals in the light of the full moon. Leave them on your windowsill in direct moonlight overnight, and your crystals natural vibrations will be restored.

Other common methods include burying them in the dirt for a day and allowing mother nature to remove the negative energy or placing them in a bowl of saltwater or moon water (if your crystals are okay to go into the water).

You should recharge your crystals at least once a month if you’re using them regularly in your spiritual practice. Remember, the more care, love, and intention you give to your crystal, the more your crystals will reward you and help you change your life.


Why should you cleanse your crystals?

Cleansing your crystals removes negative energy and allows you to reset their intention and use them in your spiritual practice. You don’t want to use crystals that are corrupted with negative energies in your meditations and manifestations, as they may push away the very things you are trying to attract!

Just like with charging your crystals, you should aim to cleanse them at least once a month. However, if you feel negative energies heavily influence them, you may have to cleanse them every fortnight.


Best ways to cleanse your crystals:

Natural water can remove negative energy from non-porous, hard stones. You can hold your crystals under a natural water source like the ocean or a stream to cleanse your crystals in as little as one minute. Remember, some crystals can’t be exposed to water, so do your research before cleansing each crystal.

Herbs such as sage can be used to cleanse your crystals without exposing them to water or sunlight. Burn your sage and run your crystals through the smoke for approximately 30 seconds to remove negative energy.

Sound can also be used to cleanse negative energies from your crystals. Using a bell, singing bowl or tuning fork creates a vibration that removes negative energy from your crystal. This method only takes 5 minutes and can be used on multiple crystals at once.


Final thoughts:

You need to take care of your crystals to achieve the results you desire. Cleansing and recharging your crystals will ensure they aren’t absorbing too much dark energy and stop them from running out of energy, which can significantly hinder your spiritual journey.
