Cleaning And Activating Your Crystals



One of the first things you should do when you bring a new crystal or piece of jewelry home is clean it.  I don’t mean use soap and water or hydrogen peroxide.  What I am referring to is cleansing any lingering energy that the crystal has picked up and is holding on to.  This could be from the ground it came from or from anyone handling it until it reached you.  You want to start off with a neutral stone so that you can get maximum benefits from it.

One of my favorite ways to clean the crystals I have is to use a piece of selenite.  This is a great absorption stone and all you do is place your stone on the selenite for a minimum of 6 hours.  Here are a few more ways to clear your crystals:

  • Place your stones or jewelry outside in the sun or under a full moon for a minimum of 4 hours
  • Place your pieces on the soil outside or on a houseplant for at least 24 hours
  • Use a smudge stick (dried sage leaves) or Paulo Santo stick and hold your pieces over the burning smoke to cleanse them
  • Lay your pieces over a piece of clear quartz for a minimum of 6 hour

Once you have cleansed your stones, you can then activate them.  This is really quite a simple process.  Decide what your intention is going to be when using the chosen piece of crystal or jewelry.  Find a quiet place to sit and hold the piece in both hands.  While breathing in the highest white light, visualize or think of the intention you have decided on.  Do this for a few minutes.  Once you have finished, your stones are ready to use!

Depending on how often and what you are using/wearing your stones for, the frequency of cleaning your stones will vary.  Pay attention to how your crystals are feeling to you and when they start to feel heavy or muddy, that is when it is time to clean them.  If you are using the piece on a daily basis, then look at a time frame from 10 – 21 days.
