Crystal Cleansing Guide

Cleanse Your Crystals

WHY?

Crystals and minerals are high vibrational items that can absorb energy in their presence. Some crystals, not all, can hold onto low vibrational energy. Which can “transfer” and energetically affect those in its presence and/ or the owner. Crystals and minerals are known to break or crack due to energetic “overload” or “overwhelm”. To avoid unwanted energy transfers and energetic overload, it is best advised to cleanse your crystals regularly or when you feel called to.


Disclaimer - Please be mindful of all cleansing techniques and do proper research Some crystals may lose color in sunlight, dissolve in water & can be damaged by salt.


Listed below are a few methods to cleanse your crystals.

These methods may work for loose crystals, jewelry, accessories, and decor.

Give thanks & gratitude

While doing each of these techniques you can say thank you and release affirmations

  • “Thank you for providing me with ______ energy.”

  • “Thank you for sharing your energy with me.”

  • “I release all unwanted energies from this crystal.”

  • “I release all the old energy back into the earth and welcome in new energy.”

Crystal Charge

You can charge your crystals using other crystals that are know to be self-cleansing and can cleanse other energies. The most popular crystal used for cleansing is selenite (gypsum), it is known to be made into plates and bowls used to hold other crystals.

  • place stones around or on top of the crystal for at least 24 hour or until you feel it is fully cleansed and charged.

  • as you place them say a few affirmations you’re comfortable with

crystals known to cleanse other crystals - selenite, gypsum, kyanite, and quartz

Smoke Bath

for those who’s prefer to use sage please make sure it is ethically sourced as well as support and purchase from indigenous tribes.

  • burn a natural herb bundle or incense & pass crystal/s through smoke for 1 minute or until you feel you should stop

  • as you submerge each crystal in smoke say a release affirmation

herbs you can use - cedar, juniper, lemongrass, smudge bundles, resins like frankincense and myrrh, etc.

Moon Charge

Visualization

  • first you should ground your energy and relax your mind & body

    you can do this by taking three deep breaths in, focus on inhaling for three seconds and exhaling for four seconds, repeat two more times.

  • once you’ve grounded your energy focus on your crystal/s and visualize the unwanted energy being cleared from them

if it helps you can color code the energy… for this example pink will represent old energy & yellow will represent the new energy

  • Visualize your crystals in pink energy/ pink light and imagine that light going downward back into the earth.

  • vizualize your crystals now being submerged in yellow light, the new energy.
