Gemstones and crystals are not only beautiful to look at; you can also use them to spread certain energy, soothe a broken heart, or add a touch of magic to your skincare routine. To use the power of gemstones at their full capacity, you first have to cleanse and charge the crystals. For an even better effect, if you want a certain gemstone to help you with something specific, you can program them afterward.
Do you have some new additions to your collection? Make sure to first cleanse and charge the crystals, before giving them a lovely spot in your home. Repeat the process regularly – each month, for example – so the crystals’ energy can flow smoothly. This ensures a personal bond with the gemstones and this also connects them to you personally. There are various methods to cleanse, charge, and program crystals:
Cleanse your crystal to get rid of possible dirt and to ensure “clean” energy.
After cleansing your crystals you can charge them. This ensures the energy of the gemstone is replenished.
Programming means setting a clear intention for your gemstone. You can ask the crystal to broadcast any type of energy very powerfully or to help you reach a certain result. For this, you use a cleansed and charged crystal, with characteristics that suit the intention. Rose quartz is a great match when you need more self-love and amethyst can promote relaxation and helps you get rid of bad habits. Proceed as follows:
Hold the crystal in both hands and imagine it’s surrounded by a circle of golden, shining light. Say your intention for the crystal out loud, or if that is not possible, concentrate in perfect silence on that what you want the gemstone to help you with. Be as clear as possible in your wish and make sure to stay clear of the word “not”. Repeat the intention as often as you think it’s needed.
