Are you interested in the healing power of crystals? Did you just get a crystal and are unsure of what to do with it? Well, first thing first: cleanse your crystals! Cleansing should always be done with new crystals. New crystals carry their journey with them, and depending on where they have been and whom they have been near, they could have some bad vibes programmed into them. Healing crystals can absorb negative energy, so you should also cleanse your crystals after using them for healing.
How to Cleanse Your Crystals
The easiest way to cleanse your crystals is to put them in a bag with clear quartz or orange carnelian. Clear quartz and orange carnelian have cleansing properties that will automatically clear negative energy from your other crystals.
Another way to cleanse your crystals is to hold them under clean running water for a couple of minutes. I try to do this while I am most relaxed during the day, so I don’t mar the cleansing with stress or negative vibes. After you hold them under water for a few minutes, place them in the sun for a few hours. If there is no sunlight at the time, place them down and envision a bright white light surrounding and being absorbed by the crystals. Ta da! Your crystals are now cleansed!
Now that you’ve cleansed your crystals, you should dedicate them.
How to Dedicate Your Crystals
This can be done directly after your crystals are cleansed. Hold your crystals in your hands. Envision bright light surrounding them. While focusing on the light and the crystals, tell them (with your words and your heart) that they will only be used for the highest good, that they will only be used positively, and your intention are of the highest helpful nature. Basically tell your crystals that they will only be used for good. If you want, you can leave them in the sun or in the moonlight to help energize them.
After you have dedicated your crystals, they will need to be activated and attuned to your unique frequency.
How to Activate Your Crystals
This procedure takes focus and visualization, so I like to do this when I am in a calm, relaxed, meditative state. Hold your crystals in your hand. Shut your eyes and focus all of your attention on the crystals. Surround them with a bright, white light. Ask your crystals to become attuned to your unique frequency, then ask them to activate as healing crystals in your current and future endeavors. Finally, ask the highest powers to bless your crystals and affirm they will only be used positively to benefit you, humanity, and the Earth.
Your crystals are now ready for whatever you have in mind! Be sure to keep them in a cloth bag, preferably with clear quartz or orange carnelian. If your crystals are not tumbled, you may want to keep them in separate cloth bags to prevent damaging them.
Have fun out there with your crystals, friends!
