The crystals you buy have traveled a long journey before they came into your possession, they passed through many hands and places, meaning they will have absorbed a range of different energies that they will have been exposed to by yourself and others who may have handled them and transferred various energies and emotions into them.  therefore, the first thing that recommended, before using them, is to purify/cleansing the crystals. you may have been given a crystal as a gift from someone who may have programmed it specially for you with specific energies.  In this case the stone may not need this initial cleansing. 

Crystal cleansing is the activity of removing stagnant or negative energy from your crystals. It can be done in many ways – from cleaning with purified water to the Moon’s light and many ways in between.

*Crystals used specifically for healing should be cleansed before and after use.

Cleansing

Here you have the most popular cleansing methods and few others

A Quick Rinse Water

The simplest & the common way is rinsed thoroughly under cool running water for few minutes early in the morning. Natural waterfalls or rain are recommended, a Quick Rinse Water is a remarkably effective cleansing agent for stones, as it washes away any negative energy that they have acquired, a quick rinse is efficient and easy to do.

Note: this method is not recommended for crystals that contain metals such as Hematite, Galena & Pyrite or very soft crystals as Halite & Sulphur.

Crystal Druse, Bed, Geode/ Cluster

All crystals can be cleansed safely by placing them inside an Amethyst Geode Cave overnight or for 24-48 hours.  An Amethyst Druse, Cluster, or Bed can also be used in the same way.  A Clear Quartz Geode, Bed or Cluster provides a faster cleansing process than Amethyst, but both methods are equally as effective.  Simply place no more than a few crystals onto the crystal points and leave for anything up to 24-48 hours.  These crystal cluster formations (both Amethyst and Quartz) have the ability to absorb the energies contained within crystals, neutralize the energies and then release ‘good’ energy from the cluster back into the crystals being cleansed, so they can effectively cleanse and energize at the same time.

Burying

By burying crystals in earth, we expose crystals and gemstones to the natural and very effective energies contained in earth. The earth energies can remove all negative and unwanted energies from the crystals. Energies contained by earth can also enhance the healing ability of a crystal in addition to clearing it off from other people’s energy.

It’s also recommended for case crystals have absorbed a lot of negativity, as crystals which used for ease the side effects of chemotherapy treatment, in this case the crystals should be returned the earth for long while.

Salt Methods

Non-Contact Salt

The safest salt-cleansing method and should be used where the crystals may otherwise be damaged by direct contact with salt or cleansing gem stones found in jewelry or gems surrounded by metal. *

Fill a glass bowl half to two thirds full with dry sea salt / Pink Himalayan  /cooking salt, then place a smaller glass container and half-bury this glass into the salt.  You can then place your crystals directly into the empty glass. this method will take longer to work than direct contact with salt. 

*Use that method anytime you have doubts about specials gems

Salt Water

Suitable crystals can be left to soak in sea water or water mixed with sea salt/ Pink Himalayan. Cooking salt can also be used if sea salt/water is not available.  You should fill a glass bowl (not metal) about half to one third full and place your crystals so they are fully submerged in the salt water for anywhere between 1 to 24 hours, then take them out and thoroughly rinse the crystals in cool running water and sweep off any residual salt.

* please be aware that this method must be avoided for certain crystals as it can have an adverse effect on them and even change their appearance and properties!  Stones that should not be soaked in salt water include crystals that are porous, contain metal or have a water content, for example Opal. Stones and minerals that should be kept away from salt include Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli, Opal, Hematite, etc.

Sea Salt Soaks

Simply fill a jar or a glass with a bit of your sea salt/ Pink Himalayan , place your crystals over the salt, and then add another layer on top of them. Allow them to soak in the healing energy for 10 minutes, take them out, and sweep off any residual salt.

Again, take care when placing your crystals directly onto dry salt as the salt can have an adverse effect on certain crystals, as explained above.

The used salt should be thrown away and never re-used.

Energizing

Once your crystal has been cleansed you will need to energize it again so that it can continue to release its own natural vibrations and energies.  There are several ways to energize crystals and the most popular methods are as follows:

Sunshine and Moonlight

The natural energies transmitted by the Sun energize your crystals with natural energies. leave your newly cleansed stones under Sunlight to allow them to absorb the sun energy, you also can do it under moonlight for absorb the different energies from the Moon.  The Sun provides a stronger energy, whereas the Moon has a gentler energy. 

When leaving crystals in Sunlight, please be aware that some colored stones (mostly the Quartz family) may fade over a period of time if left in strong sunlight too often, especially some semi-transparent crystals fade in the sun, therefor, do not leave your crystals in strong sun for more than an half of hour or so.  To be on the safe side, place in sunlight during sunrise and/or sunset because the sun’s rays won’t be as strong during these times of the day.

Water Energizing

If you are near to a natural running river, stones can be placed in an open mesh bag and left for a short time in the natural running water.  Running water can also cleanse as well as energize the stones at the same time.* 

*  Please check that your crystal can be emerged safely in water, since some should not be left to soak in water as this can have an adverse effect on them. Specifically, porous stones or those with high metal content, as mentioned before.

Crystal Druse, Bed, Geode or Cluster

as mentioned before.

Programming Crystals

Programming a crystal is the way of getting the crystal work for your purpose, or renewing his energy.

To program a crystal for specific use or with specific energies, sit quietly away from distractions or strong electrical devices and external energies, then hold the crystal in front of you, close your eyes, clear your mind and focus on the stone. Concentrate on the specific energy that you wish to program the crystal with, imagine how the required thoughts & energies have been transmitted from your mind directly to the stone.

Note: Be clear and direct when doing this and don’t overload the crystal with different thoughts and energies.
