How to Cleanse your Crystals: 4 Ways (with Tips!)
Crystals are powerful tools for healing, spiritual growth, and manifestation, but they can also accumulate negative energies over time.
In order to keep your crystals effective and vibrant, it's important to regularly cleanse them and remove any built-up negativity.
There are many different methods for cleansing crystals, and the right method will depend on the type of crystal and your personal preferences.
Cleansing crystals by moonlight
This method involves placing your crystals outside during the night, so that they are bathed in the light of the moon.
The moon's energy is believed to be powerful and purifying, and can help to cleanse your crystals of negative energies.
To cleanse your crystals by moonlight, simply place them outside (or on a windowsill that is in full moonlight) on a clear night and leave them there for at least a few hours.
Cleansing crystals by fire
This method involves using the element of fire to cleanse your crystals.
This can be done by holding your crystal over a candle flame, or by using a smudging stick (such as white sage) to create smoke and purify your crystal.
The heat and smoke from the fire is believed to have powerful cleansing properties, and can help to remove any negative energies from your crystal.
Cleansing crystals by burying
This method involves burying your crystals in the earth, allowing them to be cleansed and charged by the earth's energy.
To cleanse your crystals by burying, simply dig a hole in the ground and place your crystals inside.
Cover them with soil and leave them there for a few days or even a week, allowing them to be cleansed by the earth's energy.
Cleansing crystals by water
Cleansing crystals using water is a simple and effective way to maintain their energy and vibrancy.
You can use tap water or purified water, but avoid using distilled water as it lacks the natural minerals that are beneficial for crystals. Leave the crystals in the water for a few hours, or overnight if possible.
As the crystals are soaking, visualize the water purifying and cleansing the crystals, removing any negative energy or blockages.
