Cleaning crystals August 6, 2020 16:15Cleaning Crystals.
Crystals are very compactly arranged precise structures which facilitates the carriage of energy, as with the crystal set radios demonstrate. Like the weave of a carpet holds dust and dirt crystals can become clogged with energetic patterns and debris starting to look dull or becoming less attractive. This is when they need cleaning! More often if they are being asked to process an energy.
Sound is a thorough transformer toning, striking tuning forks, playing singing bowls and bells over your crystal will allow it to shed energetic debris. Moreover the crystal will hold the sound frequency in addition to it’s inherent resonance.
I like water and playing with water so i still believe that a freshness, not to mention a removal of dust (which loves crystals), is brought about by cleansing in water. Stick to crystals with a hardness of 7 or more for this method. One time I soaked Malachite in salt water and it was abrasive enough to remove the polish on the beads. Aragonite’s terrific star arms will fall apart if washed long enough to dissolve the mud at it’s centre. Selenite will dissolve slowly slowly as I have seen when a lamp block was made into a water feature. After one year it was half the size. Living water is preferred, if one has access to river or spring, otherwise I add anything of a high frequency or essential oils, essences or pictures to the process.
It is well known for people to clear crystals on Amethyst beds as the violet light is at the head of the visible spectrum. Light felt, seen or intended around and through a crystal has the effect of clearing and can be done in meditation effectively. Additionally we can command our crystal to release all programming and they will align with this instruction.
Sage and incense are reliable methods for clearing and cleansing crystals. Just as when I use sage to ‘smudge’ around my body and feel relieved of energetic murkiness in my self and notice how I naturally take a deep breath, drop the shoulders or sigh crystals benefit from sage smudging.
Some people do not hand their crystals around to others preferring to maintain a pure energetic relationship with their crystals so it is polite to ask before handling another’s healing tools. Therefore it is beneficial to cleanse your crystals after they are handled by others, before and/or after working, meditating or sleeping with them. Even if we carry them around without thinking much about them it is wise to cleanse them occasionally so they can keep pace with our own progression and continue offering us the higher vibrations that bring us benefit.
