How To Clean Crystals
No matter what type of crystal or stone you own or hope to have, it's best to clear any negative energy by properly cleaning them. Not surprisingly, a few of the cleaning agents that are ideal to use, are a part of nature. This provides a pure source of energy for any type of crystal.
Here are a few, as well as some other agents that you can use to maintain the health and effectiveness of your crystal:
You can use water to clean hard stones such as quartz. Water returns the stone to nature and nullifies any negative energy stored in the stone. Natural running water is best, but you can use any other source of running water such as water from your faucet.
What's most important is that you totally submerge your stone. Do this for approximately one minute per stone, then pat it dry.
Used as a natural cleaner for centuries, it's also a good option for cleaning hard stones such as amethyst and quartz. Ocean water is ideal and can absorb unwanted negativity. If you're not close to the sea, use a bowl of regular water and add a tablespoon of table, rock, or sea salt.
Again, submerge the entire stone and let it soak for a few hours or even as long as two days. The length of time will depend on how much cleansing you think your stone may need. Rinse your stone after soaking and pat it dry.
Use natural light for most tumbled stones such as jasper.Tumbled stonesare placed in a machine called a rock tumbler that smooths their surfaces and edges to give them a polished finish.
Place your stone outdoors, preferably in direct contact with the earth. Be sure that it won't be disturbed by anyone, including wildlife. You should do this before nightfall until about 11 am the following day. This will allow your stone to bask in both the light of the moon and the sun.
However, be careful, as too much sunlight can erode the stone's surface, so never leave it out all day. Remove any debris or dirt from the stone by lightly rinsing it which will clean it even more. Then pat it dry.
Inclement weather can damage soft stones. You should avoid using this method for vibrant stones such as amethyst.
The great thing about brown rice is that you can use it to clean any type of stone - hard or soft. It's especially good for protective stones like black tourmaline. Brown rice allows you to remove negativity from your stones in a contained and safe setting.
Bury your stone at the bottom of a bowl of brown rice. Leave it for 24 hours. The rice will absorb any negative energy, so throw out the rice once the cleansing is complete.
The healing properties of sage are numerous and it has been used throughout history. It's a sacred plant that can clean any stone.Smudging is an Eastern traditionthat involves the burning of herbs to purify persons, places, or items of negative energy.
The method of smudging sage can restore your stone's natural energy and clear unpleasant vibrations. It's better to smudge outside but if this isn't possible, do it near a window to allow the bad energy to escape.
Before you start, make sure you have:
A loose bundle of sage
A bowl that's fireproof
Matches or a lighter
Light the stage and move your stone through the smoke. Let the smoke envelop your stone for 30 to 60 seconds, depending on how much cleansing your stone needs.
The great thing about smudging is that you can use it on any type of stone.
The theory behind using sound as a cleanser is that it heals by providing a single tone that spreads across an area and brings anything within that area into that same vibration. You can do this by using a bell, a tuning fork, singing bowls, or simply chanting.
The key you use doesn't matter. But the sound must be loud enough for the vibration to embody the stone. Do it for five to ten minutes. It's an ideal method for any type of stone or if you have multiple stones that you may not necessarily want to move from one place to another.
