Healing crystals are known for their ability to enhance our spiritual and metaphysical well-being.
They have unique properties and vibrations that can help us balance our energy, relieve stress, and promote healing. However, in order to receive the full benefits of your crystals, it's important to take care of them properly. Here are some tips on how to cleanse, charge, and program your healing crystals.
Cleansing Your Crystals
Cleansing your crystals is essential to remove any negative energy or vibration that may be absorbed by them. Here are some ways to cleanse your crystals:
1. Water: Hold your crystals under running water for a few minutes to wash away any negative energy. Be careful not to use water on certain types of crystals that may dissolve or become damaged.
2. Moonlight: Place your crystals under the light of the full moon overnight. The moon’s energy will cleanse and charge your crystals.
3. Salt: Place your crystals in a bowl of sea salt overnight. The salt will absorb any negative energy from the crystals.
4. Smoke: Hold your crystals over the smoke of a sage stick or incense for 3-5 minutes to cleanse their energy.
5. Earth: Bury your crystals in the earth for a few hours or overnight.
6. Sound: Use a singing bowl, bell or chimes to cleanse your crystals with sound vibrations.
7. Selenite: Selenite, like the bowl pictured below is known to be energy cleansing to auras, crystals, and even ourselves. Leave your crystals in or around selenite overnight and allow them to be cleansed and refreshed.
Charging Your Crystals
After cleansing, it's necessary to charge your crystals to restore their energy and vibrations. Here are some ways to charge your crystals:
1. Sunlight: Place your crystals in direct sunlight for a few hours to charge them. Be sure to research your crystal before leaving it in the sun for extended periods of time to ensure that they won't fade in the light.
2. Rub Them in Your Palms: You are the greatest tool in your energy arsenal. But rubbing your crystals in your palms, you re-energize them and activate their energy.
3. Earth: Bury your crystals in the earth for a few hours or overnight. The energy of the Earth is both cleansing and charging to your crystals. These beauties come from the Earth, so sending them back allows them to be re-energized in their element.
Programming Your CrystalsProgramming your crystals is the process of setting an intention for them to work towards. Here's how to program your crystals:
1. Hold your crystal in your hand and focus on your intention.
2. Visualize your intention flowing into the crystal and becoming a part of it.
3. Speak your intention out loud or silently to the crystal.
4. Keep your crystal close to you or use it in your daily meditation practice.
Remember, the more care and attention you put into taking care of your crystals, the more they will provide you with their benefits. By following these simple steps, you can create a symbiotic relationship with your crystals and enhance your spiritual and metaphysical well-being.
