How to Cleanse your stones and crystals.
If you have been thinking about why you should cleanse your crystals, and you use them regularly, understand that your crystals are tools. You need these tools to be at the highest vibration possible, so that you may receive the most benefit from using them.
Many people go to great lengths to clean their home, their clothes and themselves, yet neglect to remove the negativity from the crystals they are using.
Its just a matter of learning about the methods to clean your stones, and you can do it on a regular basis to keep them full of positive energy.
Crystal Singing Bowls Cleanse Crystals With Sound
A crystal singing bowl may be used to cleanse your crystals. There are two ways to do this. If the stones are small you may put them into the crystal singing bowl.
For bigger items, place them close to the bowl, then play the bowl for a few minutes.
The crystal bowl resonating music is very powerful and the sounds emitted by the bowl will resonate throughout the room.
As the strong vibration of the pure crystalline sound of your crystal singing bowl fills the crystals, it will drive out any negative energy.
The sound will lift the vibration of any of your crystals that are close by, and the room will also be filled with good vibrations as well. It is my opinion that the use of resonating sound in higher vibrational tone from other sources is equally usable to cleanse. Metal singing bowls work in the same way as crystal singing bowls. The tools we use for this are not limited. Gongs, bells, even the human voice can all create resonating sound that will fill your stones and crystals and push out accumulated negativity.
You can buy smudge sticks ready made, make your own, or you can use loose sage leaf. Cleansing crystals by smudging them is easy. So how do you smudge crystals? The most potent smudge to use is white sage.
Most smudge sticks are made up of either white sage alone or mixed with lavender.
Some may have other fragrant herbs in them as well, and some of these may also have healing attributes that could benefit you. Sage smoke is powerful to cleanse both your stones and the environment where they live.
You can do this one of two ways. You can hold the stones close to the stream of the smoke, or simply hold your smudge stick near to where they are sitting, and fan the smoke over them so the air around them is full of the sage essence. It is better to fan smoke with a feather or fan, in preference to blowing with your breath. When smudging, it is important to visualize any negativity sticking to the smoke, and dissapating away as the smoke also flows away.
This is the method most alchemical healers use, to quickly cleanse their stones and crystal wands after use on clients.
Rinsing with clear water
Cleaning your crystals with water is not recommended unless you know about whether you stone is safe to cleanse this way. Some stones like Selenite will dissolve in water. Some crystals have soft matrix they are in which can loosen in water making the crystal fall apart like Celestialite clusters for example.
If they are quartz type crystals, or hard materials, generally this will be safe. But please take care when using water on large clusters, as they may still be harmed by water, so do it with care. Once again, visualize any accumulated negativity washing away with the clear water, as it flows over the stone
Using The White Light
Using white light is a powerful method once you know how to create it. Most of you have the capacity to create white light, and this may also be called universal light.
The first time you do it, close your eyes and ask the universe or spirit, or whatever you believe in to be the creator, to create white light. This is similar to the power of prayer.
Imagine your body filling with the light, then feel the added energy that you have within you. Open your eyes and direct the white light.
Use your hands in a small sweeping motion towards where you want to direct the white light, or cup your hands around the stone or crystal. Ask the universe to use the white light to transmute any negative energy within the stone into positive energy.
Not only can this method be used for cleansing crystals, the white light can also be used on yourself to bring your vibration up, or use it to improve the energy of the room. White light is the easiest and most effective method to remove any built up negative energy quickly.
Cleansing Crystals Using Rice
You can use rice cleansing if you are wary of using water or sage, and this may be especially useful if you have a stone that is very precious to you.
You can use any type of rice, white or brown is okay for cleansing crystals, and its quite easy to do.
Simply place your stones on top of the rice and leave overnight. This method is very easy and simple, and you can do it easily.
The rice will absorb negative energy, so you will need to throw it out after using it. Throw it away outside the house, not in the indoor trash.
It is advantageous to use a flat bowl, and depending on the stone, sometimes you may choose to cover it with rice or simply place it on top.
I have used this same method with sea salt as well, but be sure the stone you are cleansing will not be corroded or harmed by exposure to salt.
Cleansing Crystals... Burying Stones
You may also choose to bury your stone in the earth, but again make sure that you know if the stone is one that can take water, in case rain seeps through to where they are located.
This is a perfect way to cleanse many stones, but do mark where you put them so that you can find them again! This method is very effective for crystals or stones that have had alot of negative energy. At least leave them in the ground for a full day and night, but longer is better for stones that need a more thorough cleaning.
Using a Selenite Plate Stone
One method I use regularly on stones I wear or carry often is to place them on a Selenite plate stone overnight. The Selenite clears and retains no negativity, and any stone placed on it will be cleared of any negative energy it picked up during the day. The Selenite plate will itself need to be charged monthly.
