Getting the Most Out of Your Crystals

For thousands of years, crystals have been used for their metaphysical healing properties. Cleansing and charging are important to ensure you get the most out of them. 

The purpose of cleansing crystals is to remove negative energy that's believed to build up over time.  The purpose of charging is to recharge the crystal's energy, which is believed to dissipate through extended use.   

Cleansing and charging crystals ensures they remain effective and can be used to their full potential.

Here are some ideas for how to cleanse and charge crystals:

  1. Submerge in Water: Many crystal healers recommend cleansing crystals by submerging them in water.  Before doing so, it's important to check that the crystal can be cleansed this way.  Many crystals, including malachite, pyrite, turquoise and angelite should not be allowed to get wet.

  2. Some people recommend cleansing crystals in salt water.  Although some minerals such as quartz are tough enough to be submerged in water, many will become marked, lose colour or even crack over time.

  3. When cleansing crystals, it's best not to leave them in water for any length of time. Where possible dry them using a soft, lint-free cloth. 

  4. Charging in Sunlight: It's often recommended that crystals be charged in sunlight.  This is a contentious subject because many minerals are sensitive to heat, light or both.  Exposure to sunlight can cause a crystal to fade, change colour or dehydrate.

  5. Charging Crystals in Moonlight: A more suitable way to charge crystals is with the energy from the moon.  Charging them this way, particularly under a full moon, is far safer than leaving them in the sun. When using this method it's important to be aware of weather conditions.  Crystals should not be left outside if it's cold, damp or if rain is expected.

  6. Smudging Crystals: Smudging is the safest way to cleanse crystals.  This ritual is widely used by crystal healers and in other spiritual practices.  Its purpose is to remove negative energy and purify a space or object. Smudging involves burning herbs and allowing the smoke to flow freely.  A smudge stick is a bundle of herbs that has been tied together.  Some consist of one herb whilst others have several.  Sage, cedar, lavender and rosemary are some of the most popular although many herbs and some spices can be used.  Palo Santo is also popular.  Palo santo is wood from palo santo trees, which grow mainly in South America.

  7. Cleanse by Smudging: The use of smoke is an effective and relaxing way to cleanse an object and an environment.  It's far better than immersing crystals in water or exposing them to the elements.

  8. Advantages of Smudging: When crystals are smudged it's also an opportunity for the surrounding environment to be cleansed and purified.  Removing negative energy from your space is just as important as removing it from crystals. Using smoke for purification purposes has been practised since the dawn of time.

  9. Many people who cleanse and charge their crystals regularly say they can feel very different after the ritual.

There are many different ways to cleanse and charge crystals.  Whichever method you choose, the process can help you connect with them on a deeper level.

Building a relationship with your crystals may help you to tune in more easily to their healing properties.

The ultimate aim of cleansing and charging crystals is to enhance their energy.  This can make them more effective for their intended purpose.

What is Manifestation?

In crystal healing, manifestation refers to using specific crystals to help one attract or manifest a desire, goal, or intention.

The technique is based on the belief that crystals possess unique energies that can help amplify and focus one's thoughts, intentions and emotions.

Many believe using crystals in certain ways can help them attract positive experiences, people and circumstances into their lives.

To use healing crystals for manifestation you should choose a crystal that resonates with your intention or goal.  It should then be held or placed close to you during meditation.  It can also be placed in a prominent location within your living or workspace. 

Some of the most popular crystals for manifestation include clear quartz, citrine, amethyst and rose quartz.

During the manifestation ritual you should visualise the desired outcome while focusing on the crystal.  The crystal is believed to amplify intentions and help bring them into reality.

The effects and success of using crystals for their healing properties will vary from person to person. No two experiences will be the same.

It's important to remember that crystal healing is an alternative therapy that may not be effective for everyone.  Despite extensive research over many years, science has never found anything conclusive to support the ability of crystals to heal

Crystals should never be used to replace professional medical advice or to treat a medical or mental health condition.  However, some people may find that working with crystals can be helpful and beneficial when used in conjunction with other forms of care.
