Crystals take on the energy of their surroundings. This can be intentional, but often they could use a good energetic cleansing to reset them and remove any negative, unwanted energy. Below are some ways you can cleanse your crystals today.

WATER CLEANSING

Water is a favorite ways to cleanse crystals. Running water is naturally purifying and it carries with it oxygen as it spreads the nutrients of the earth far and wide. 

Place your crystals in a stream, river, lake or simply under the running water of a faucet as you visualize the absolute purity of nature removing all unwanted energy.

SMOKE CLEANSING

Smoke is another fantastic way to cleanse your crystals from unwanted or stagnant energy. Since it represents the element of air, smoke creates a visual display of the unwanted energy being lifted high into the air as it is removed from your crystals. 

To cleanse your crystals with smoke, you might want to use a bundle of sage, stick of incense or palo santo. Wash your hands and ground yourself as you hold the crystal in your hand. Hold the incense with the other hand and allow the smoke to rise through your fingers and cleanse the crystal.

SALT CLEANSING

Salt is a naturally purifying element that works well as a crystal cleanser as well.

Find a small bowl or dish and pour a mound of sea salt inside it. Use just enough to be able to cover your crystal. Place your crystal inside the mound of salt and let it remain there overnight, or for a duration that is meaningful to you. 

After you have cleansed a crystal in salt, it’s usually a good idea to discard the salt.

While we can often work with the natural energy of each crystal we own, charging crystals gives us the opportunity to enhance that energy or infuse our own intentions for our life outcomes within them. Below are my favorite ways to charge crystals quickly and easily.

ENERGETIC CHARGING

Crystals are useful in our daily lives because we can hold them, admire their beauty, and draw inspiration and power from them. In essence, they become a symbol, and we can use this symbol to create real changes in our lives.

Symbols carry with them an energy all their own, and they have the power to create massive changes in the world around us.

It is this symbolic energy within crystals that I find incredibly useful in my daily life, and you can use your crystals as symbols of change in your life as well.

CHOOSING YOUR ENERGY

So, what does this look like? Well, charging your crystals with a certain energy requires you to first choose the energy that you’d like to have more of.

These energies reside in every thing we could ever manifest in life, and it’s our job to choose one and focus on it intently.

Be creative! Choose ideas like love, abundance, peace, more opportunity, forgiveness, etc.

Then, once you’ve chosen your desired outcome, ground yourself in the moment through meditation or silence, hold your crystal in your hands, and meditate on your chosen energy.

Let your emotions raise that energy even higher as you feel and visualize exactly what it would be like to have that desire right now. Then, let that energy become attached to your crystal.

 

ELEMENTAL CHARGING

Another great way to charge your crystals is to use the natural elements that surround us at every moment. 

Earth, Air, Fire and Water are present all around us and they bring with them natural energies and common associations that can help you focus your intentions to create harmonious outcomes in your life. 

 

THE EARTH ELEMENT
To charge your crystal with the elements and energies of the earth, find a bit of earth to bury your crystal in overnight to allow it to absorb the deep and grounded qualities of the earth.

EARTH CORRESPONDENCES:
Comfort, Money, Home, Prosperity, Career, Grounding, Security & Safety

 

THE AIR ELEMENT
To charge your crystal with the elements and energies of the air, place your crystal in a meaningful area where the wind will blow over and through. Leave your crystal outside for 30 minutes to an hour while it charges.

AIR CORRESPONDENCES:
Clear Communication, Speech, Information, Learning & Studying, Relationships, Spiritual Connection

THE FIRE ELEMENT
To charge your crystal with the elements and energies of fire, allow them to take in the heat and smoke from a small campfire, or carefully pass them through the flame of a candle that is burning in a fire safe environment.

FIRE CORRESPONDENCES:
Personal passions, love, creative energy, bursts of energy, life force & “aliveness”

 

THE WATER ELEMENT
To charge your crystal with the elements and energies of water, place them in a river, stream, lake or bowl of water to let them absorb its energy.

WATER CORRESPONDENCES:
Emotions, healing, the subconscious mind, maturity, going with life’s flow

 

 

 

PLANETARY CHARGING

Using the classical model of the cosmos, (Astrology practiced in the western world prior to about 1700) we can neatly lump all of the celestial bodies into one category. 

This just means using the Sun, Moon and planets to charge our crystals. The Sun and Moon are obvious choices, so to charge our crystals, simply let them soak in the aspect of each that you are attracted to. 

As an example, when the moon is becoming full, it brings with it a building energy of creative energy that can be used to manifest in our life.

Using the celestial events is a great way to charge your crystals. Just be creative and don’t forget to be intentional about what you are chargning your crystals with!
