The Basics of how to Charge and Cleanse Your Crystals

Welcome to AngelicLightWraps Informational Blog! In this discussion I will be covering how to charge and cleanse your lovely crystals. Lots of people get there crystals and don’t quite understand how to keep the energy that they admit in constant flow. There are many ways you can do this and I will gladly go over how to do this with you.  As a Reiki Master and Crystal Therapist I can both feel and know how to keep my crystals charged and ready to be used constantly. I am glad to be able to share my knowledge with you.

To start off this lesson lets cover cleansing crystals.  Cleansing your beautiful crystal companions is very easy. Some of your crystals will react to water so be careful and make sure stay on top of information about your crystals. A great book for this is the Crystal Bible by Judy Hall. This will be a fantastic book for all beginners for general knowledge on crystals and what they can do for you. When you acquire your new crystal it should be cleansed because you don’t know what kind of energy it has been exposed to. You want your crystal to be bonded to you not to have another person’s energy or another places energy attached to your crystal. When you cleanse your crystal it will be free and clear and full of positive energy to assist you as needed. 

     Salt Water is one cleaning method for crystals. Some people prefer this method but I personally don’t. What you do is take some sea salt and mix it in spring water. You will leave your crystals in it for 1 to 24 hours. As for me I don’t personally do this method. I have had damage and fading happen to my crystals while using this method. If I do use salt it would be dry Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt placed in a flat container. Then I would place my crystals on the surface of this salt to cleanse them. This way my crystals will be safe from damage and I can just grab them as needed easily. Just throw away your salt after you grab your crystals out of the container because you don’t want the salt that has unwanted energy absorbed in it.  

     Smudging is another very dependable way to cleanse your crystal beauties. This is a very popular method for cleansing your crystals. You can get a Sage Stick or Sage Incense Sticks just hold your crystals in the rising smoke from the Sage. The Crystals will release all pinned up energies and bad energy from your crystals. There are some other types of herbs you can use to beside sage which are sweet grass, sandalwood, or cedar wood. You can use a feather to fan the smoke around your crystals which should be done for 20 or 30 seconds or as long as you feel necessary. 

     One other method I use for cleansing is large selenite charge plates I sometimes sell on my website. You can get a large slice of flat selenite and place your crystal beauties on it for 1 hour to 24 hours depending on your preference. Then take your crystal pieces off your selenite charge plate and cleanse it just to make sure the energy is pure for when you’re ready to use it again. Selenite is also one of those special crystals to have in your home because it filters energy. Selenite takes in negative energy and releases back as positive energy and cleanse it when you feel it needs cleansing.  

     So let’s talk quickly about charging your crystals. Once you crystals are clean you will need to charge them up. There are a few preferred ways I charge my crystals and I am going to share them with you. 

     I do charge some of my crystals in sunlight but only ones that will not fade in the sun. Make sure you do your crystal research because there are some crystals like Rose Quartz, Celestite, Amethyst and so on. I normally let them charge for 20 to 30 minutes. 

     Moonlight is an excellent to charge your crystals. Not only is it not harmful and you will not have to worry about any of your crystals fading. Crystals love moonlight and you may even have a few move around on you!  

     Another way to charge your crystals is with Reiki Energy. I know some of us are not reiki masters but you can charge your crystals with reiki. If your friends a reiki master or even a level 1 student just draw the Dai Ku Myo over your crystals and concentrate on them with your hands placed over your crystals for as long as you feel necessary.   

     So here was just a few of my chosen methods of cleansing and charging your crystal babies. I know there are other methods of charging and cleansing crystals but these are my preferred methods.  These methods I have chosen work great and my crystals don’t fade. My lovely crystals retain their beautiful luster and positive energy and so will yours with these methods I have shared with you.
