“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” —Buddha
Crystals are frozen vibrations that must be freed from the impurities and discord during their journey. Your crystal should be cleansed prior to use. If you will be using your crystals for meditational work, cleanse it often. By cleaning and caring for your crystals, you return them to a clear and pure state.
Hold crystal under water. Visualize water washing over the crystal taking away disruptions. Use sea salt and lightly brush it over the stone using the water to cleanse the salt away.
Place directly under the moonlight and charge it up under the full and new moons to get the most potent frequencies.
Place directly under the sun to receive masculine solar energy to support big efforts that require momentum and call attention to your endeavors.
Place in snow for a quick and powerful way to clear and program your crystal to hold long-lasting intent.
Bury your crystal in the earth for 3, 7 or 11 days to give your stone a total reset.
As with sage to clear your home, so with smoke to clear your crystal. This is helpful for cleansing crystals on jewelry which would corrode.
Sound of your own voice of sacred chants will hold programming.
