It’s important to keep your crystals cleansed and charged regularly to make sure that they get a chance to dump out all of that negative energy they have been collecting. Cleansing and recharging should be done after particularly heavy reiki or healing sessions or every few weeks depending on what’s been going on in your world. You can cleanse by simply running your crystal underwater for a few moments. If your crystal feels particularly delicate or doesn’t do well with water you can also choose smudging with sage or palo santo. To recharge, place your crystals beneath the full moon or in a slant of sunlight. Again, delicate crystals can be placed in soil, brown rice, or be placed with other quartz crystals who can help to build that energy back up.
Crystals can have the power to change your life. They encourage us to be gentle with ourselves, to practice self-care, and to carry intention with us wherever we go. Gemstones provide a gateway into building ourselves up and working to align our body, mind, and soul. For all those beginning their journey with crystals, we salute you and wish you all the joy in the world on this awesome adventure.
