In the world of holistic health, crystals are an important concept to understand. You can use crystals in a variety of different ways to achieve new levels of mental and spiritual health. They are conduits of energy, which means they can help you release blockages and gain positive energy when you need it the most. That being said, if you use crystals for healing purposes, you will need to cleanse them from time to time again. They will get charged with certain energy that can be passed on to you if you don’t take the proper steps to care for them. Any new crystal you get might already be charged with energy, so it’s important to clean them before you start using them for healing purposes. Below, we will discuss a few ways you can care for your crystals and keep them ready to use.
1. Soak Your Crystals
Water is the essence of life. That’s why it makes a lot of sense to soak your crystals in water to clean them. You should always use cold water and add a bit of sea salt to the water. Place the crystal inside the water and start thinking about the intention of cleaning the crystal’s energy. Hover your hand above the bowl of water and the crystal and focus on removing the negative energy from the crystal. After you’ve completed this exercise, leave the crystal in the water overnight, remove it from the bowl, and rinse it off. Make sure that the type of crystal you are soaking is ok to be in the water!
2. Recharge Your Crystals
Another important activity that helps you care for your crystal is recharging them. This is most commonly done by placing your crystals in direct sunlight for about a day. After you bath them in sunlight, you might notice that your crystal appears brighter. The sun is one of the most powerful natural energy forces on our planet. It can clean your crystals and recharge them so that they are ready to provide their optimum healing power. The idea is to connect your crystals with the natural forces of the earth. You can also recharge them by leaving them out under the moonlight at night.
3. Store Your Crystals Safely
It’s important to find the right place to store your crystals when you aren’t using them. Places that are dry, clean, and away from corrosive elements is your best bet. Try to avoid storing your crystals where they can be exposed to dust, moisture, and salty air. It’s also a good idea to keep each type of crystal separate so that their energies don’t intertwine.
