As a strong believer of energy and choice, I self-read and study about horoscopes and crystals. That doesn’t mean I allow these to take control of my life. Remember to evaluate and make choices you feel best at the point of time.
How to Cleanse Your Crystals
- Soak them in clean water. Make sure the gemstones submerge completely in the water. You may add salt but not a compulsory. Leave them for 10 to 15 mins.
- Drained the crystals and spread and lay them out on something flat.
- Sun them in morning preferably. Leave them for at least half an hour. The purpose of this is to “absorb” the energy from the sunlight. You may also choose to do so during night, when the full moon is up.
- Sage it if you like but not necessary.
Cleaning your crystals is not about superstitious. Just like your home, your clothes. You wash and clean them to rid the dirt.
Energies is like wind. You can’t see it but you feel them. How you take care of your environment plays a key factor on your own vibration. There no point to put crystals, gemstones, figurines, status etc. if you don’t bother to maintain them properly.
