Crystal Cleansing Methods

Posted by Jen Faeline Mergell on

Crystals do so much for us that it is important to take special care of our crystalline friends. If you have a crystal that you have just acquired or one that you have been working with, it is a good idea to give it a little energy cleanse.

Why should you cleanse your crystals? It gets them back to their original, sparkly vibration level to where they can do their best work on helping you. Simply put, absolutely everything has a vibration, which even includes emotions and physical objects. Negative energy, including negative emotions and physical pain, have low vibrations. Crystals, when they are at their optimal vibrational state, resonate at a high vibration. Low and high vibrations cannot exist together, so the crystals will help to raise the low energies to high ones. That high vibrational energy means your health and over all well-being is increased.

Crystals that you work with or keep with you often should be cleansed more regularly than the ones that may simply be sitting on your desk or in a box. However, it is nice to give all of your sparkly friends a nice energetic tune-up every now and then. Use your intuition on how often your crystals need a little extra care.

Recommended Cleansing Methods

I have listed my personal preferred methods first. They are among the easiest and safest for all crystals.

Selenite crystals in Full Moon lightDO NOT: Do not put your crystals or crystal jewelry in a chemical cleaner or ultra sonic cleaner. It will hurt the stones. If you have silver needs to be polished then use a polishing cloth on the silver only.

MOONLIGHT - Full Moon: I have not yet met a crystal that does not enjoy the moon light. The best time is during a Full Moon. The strong full moon energy actually lasts for 3 days, so it's ok if you miss the actual day of a full moon. You can catch those moonlight rays on the day before, day of, and day after a full moon. Yes, your crystals will still get the energy even if it is cloudy or raining. However, if it is going to rain make sure that none of your crystals are listed in the "avoid water" listing below.

SOUND: Everything has a vibration, especially sound. Since we are helping to set a crystal's vibrations back to its original state, it makes sense that sound can help us with that. Crystal or Tibetan singing bowls work perfectly. Have your crystals near the bowl as you play it. You can run a tuning fork over your crystals. Any loud music will work as well. Put your crystals in front of the speakers and turn up your favorite music. The important thing with sound cleansing is to have the crystals within the sound's vibrations.

REIKI: You can cleanse and give your crystals an extra little energy boost with Reiki energy. Simply hold the crystals in between your hands as you and infusing them with the energy.
