Crystals absorb energy and need to be cleansed from time to time. They carry energy that they get when we carry them with us, have them positioned next to our bed, inside the pillow, at the table, on our desk or in various parts of the body to activate our chakras. The crystals absorb and transform all our energy vibration. It is necessary to clean them, energize them and load them with intention and love. The crystals especially when new to us, need to be rinsed in running water, or in a bowl with salted water, and with our full intention to remove all stored energy.
A powerful and wonderful way to cleanse, balance and charge them are outside, in the full moon for crystals with cold colors like blue, purple and white, and in the early sun before 10 am. for warm colored crystals, red, orange, yellow.
Afterwards we need to hold them close to our heart and fill them with our messages of Love, Light and Power.
The New Moon is time the for the crystals to rest and gain strength.
