When you use crystals and stones for healing, energy work, magic, and other purposes, the energies they possess can be drained or used up.
As a result, negative, stagnant, stale, or harmful energies can replace them.
To remedy this, crystals and stones should always be cleansed and charged regularly before and after use. This will ensure that they are in top condition and working well.
This will also prevent the growth of negativity and dispel the lingering negative energies that may influence you and the people who are around the crystals and stones.
Crystals and stones need to be charged because the energy that they carry is not unlimited. Over time, it will weaken and start to dwindle.
Crystals and stones that are still deep inside the earth will not need to be charged because they draw their energies naturally from the earth.
But once they’re dug up from the earth, they will also lose their ability to charge themselves using the earth’s energies.
This is why their energies must be refreshed by anyone who uses them and cares for them. To charge crystals and stones is a fairly simple process, and there are many ways to do it.
The only thing you need to do is pick the one that’s most convenient for you and the most effective for your crystals and stones.
Charging Crystals With The Help Of The Universe
To use the energy of the universe, you will need a piece of gold-colored cloth.
The cloth should be big enough to hold all the crystals and stones that you want to cleanse and charge.
Place them all on top of the cloth and focus on connecting with the universe’s powerful and positive energies.
Visualize the crystals and stones being cleansed by vibrating universal energies and being charged with clean and potent energies right after.
Using The Sun To Charge Crystals
All crystals and stones will benefit from the power of the sun.
Yellow is the color of the sun’s energy, and all you need to do to cleanse and charge your crystals and stones is to leave them out in sunlight for several hours, maximum of seven hours.
How long you put your crystals and stones under the sun will depend on you. I recommend at least 24 hrs to get the very best results.
Just make sure to bring them back inside when the sun is about to set.
Your crystals and stones should only be exposed to sunlight. If you leave them out too long and they get cleansed or charged by moonlight, the energy will also change.
This may also have an effect on how their energies will affect you the next time you use them.
Charging Crystals With Moonlight
By putting your crystals and stones under the light of a full moon or crescent moon, you are also cleansing and charging them.
Make sure to put them there for approximately seven hours.
Like cleansing and charging your crystals and stones using solar power, make sure that they are only exposed to moonlight.
Charging Crystals With The Help Of The Earth
Using this method of cleansing and charging can bring powerful healing energies to you and your crystal work.
As long as you have access to a small patch of natural earth, this should be a very easy way to clear and restore the energy of your stones.
Whether you’re charging your crystals yourself or having them done by another person, it is important to know how long to charge the crystal for. This will ensure that you are charging your crystals properly and following all of the rules.
As a guideline, most people charge their crystals overnight for 8 hours. Some people charge them for longer (up to 24 hours), and some do it for shorter periods of time (for example, 2-4 hours).
It really depends on your intention and the person doing the charging.
Charging your crystals overnight is a common practice because we sleep during this time and we believe our subconscious minds will continue the work we’re doing.
This allows for the best healing work to be done during our subconscious state. The person charging your crystals should take this into consideration if they are also working with you on a psychic or energetic level.
Again, this depends on you and your own personal needs.
Most people will charge their crystals once a week, some do it twice a week, and some do it very infrequently.
It’s important to listen to your stones as well as yourself when deciding how often you should charge them. Crystals are more powerful when they are charged regularly.
If you are working with your crystals often, then they will be able to stay charged for longer periods of time because you will not need to recharge them as much.
This also works in conjunction with how you feel about your crystals when you pick them up. If they have lost some power, then it is a good indication that they need to be recharged.
There are many different ways to charge crystals.
Some people will sit quietly with their crystals and visualize the energy of the crystal being absorbed into their own energy while others say an affirmation or hold intentions in their mind.
It is up to you how you would like to do this, but make sure you are saying something – even if it is to yourself.
Charging your crystals is an active process and you should always be interacting with them in some way – even if it’s just talking to them!
f you’re using words, then say something like: “I charge this (name of crystal) to do (insert your intention here.)”
Avoid saying things like: “I will charge you to…” or “I want you to do…”
Your crystal should be doing the work, not you telling it what to do.
It’s not uncommon for people to arrange their crystals in a group before charging them.
This can be done by creating grid-work with the crystals or simply placing them together. There are different theories on this, so it is up to you if you would like to try it!
Some people think that each crystal will absorb the energy of the other crystals in the group, while others believe that the energy from each crystal will add to the group and create a stronger, more powerful crystal.
If you are using your charged crystals for a specific reason or working with them on an energetic level, then it is important that all of the crystals are similar and work together.
Otherwise, it may not be necessary.
