You might have received some healing crystals from a friend or family member as a birthday gift. But did you know that you must cleanse and charge all of them as soon as they arrive?
Think about how many people with all sorts of energies and traumas would have touched your healing crystals before you.
Read on to see some ways how you can cleanse and charge your healing crystals and start your crystal jewelry.
Crystals and Their Sensitive Natures
Crystals are like the empaths of the stone world. They take on the energies, emotions, and vibrations of everyone and everything around them. That's why you need to be careful with your own healing crystals.
First, you should cleanse and charge them when you first receive them. That's essential.
Second, you should do the same regularly, to ensure that they aren't charged with any of your bad energies, or someone else's that might have visited.
Some Ways to Cleanse and Charge Your Healing Crystals
There are two major ways to cleanse and charge your crystals.
If your crystal isn't sensitive to water (moonstone, calcite, and healing selenite are sensitive to water), then you can place them in a bowl of ocean water.
If you don't live near the ocean, you can make saltwater by mixing a tablespoon of sea, rock, or table salt in water. Place your crystals into the cleansing salt water for a few days. Pat them dry after and you are golden!
The second way uses the energy of the full moon to charge and cleanse your crystals. The great thing about this method is that the full moon comes around every month at a set time.
You can find a calendar of full moon times and dates online. All you need to do here is place your healing crystals in the light of the full moon outside on some dirt, earth, or your balcony or window sill overnight.
It's as easy as that. The full moon will do it all for you.
Again, remember to check the weather, and if it's going to rain, don't place crystals that don't like water outside. It could damage them.
Make sure to put a reminder on your phone for the full moon every month, and this way, your crystals will keep protecting you from bad vibrations without fail all year long. This applies to your crystal jewelry as well.
Support Your Healing Crystals by Cleansing and Charging Them
Your healing crystals do a lot for you. Day in and day out they are protecting you from all sorts of negative vibrations, without you even being aware of it.
That's why it's time for you to give back to them. As long as you cleanse and charge them regularly, they will be able to keep doing their job for you.
