Cleansing and Clearing your Crystal:
it is very important to clean and cleanse your crystals, so your crystal only has your energy on it..
Do not share your crystals they are adapted to your energy only..
Each crystal you receive or new item you should always clean and cleanse
when your crystal gets delivered and leaves me it is touched by many hands which is exposing your crystals to many levels of energy touching your parcel,
Crystals hold the energy imprint of the last person they touched,
Cleanse your crystals when you first receive them and after using them with others to ensure they are attuned to your energy vibrations..
There are many ways to cleanse crystals, some will be damaged by water so if you are not sure use another method other than water.
Here are a few i find really effective and to which i use myself!!
- Simply wash your crystal under running water, (A stream is best but tap water will do!.)
- Bury your crystal in sea salt or a combination of sea salt and filtered water.
- Or you can pass your crystal through the smoke of a smudging stick or swiftly the light of a candle!
In all cases what ever you choice the best method for you, hold the intention to cleanse your crystal and visualize it clear and ready for work..
