Because crystals are conduits of energy and intention, it is important to cleanse your new finds to rid them of any previous intent.
1 SOAK Add ½ tsp of sea salt to every cup of alkaline water in a glass bowl and stir. Add your crystal, making sure it is submerged. Close your eyes and, with your hands hovering over the bowl, set the intention for the salted water to remove any negative energy from the crystals. Let your crystal soak overnight, remove, then rinse.
2 SMUDGE Hold the crystal in your hand and light a bundle of sage or palo santo wood until it smolders. Wave the smoke back and forth over the crystals. Then extinguish the embers.
3 SOUND OFF Place your crystal close to a singing bowl and lightly strike it three times. Then glide the mallet around the outer rim of the bowl repeatedly.
4 RECHARGE Leave your crystal in the sun all day or overnight in the moonlight if it hasn’t reconnected to the earth in a long time.
