Cleansing and Charging Your Crystals

Cleansing your crystals with air is convenient if you want to cleanse and work with your stone right away.  Here’s how you cleanse a crystal using the air technique:

  • Hold the stone between the thumb and first finger of your non-dominant hand.
  • Take several slow deep breaths and visualize yourself surrounded by pure, white light.
  • Talk to the stone and then take another deep breath.
  • Gently exhale cleansing white energy onto the stone.
  • Turn the stone slightly between your fingers and repeat until every part of the stone has received pure white energy.

After you have cleansed your crystals they need to be charged with positive energy to make them as effective as possible.  The following meditation is quick and effective in charging your crystals.

  • Sit comfortably somewhere where you will not be disturbed.
  • Hold your stone between your clasped palms, close your eyes and take several slow deep breaths.
  • Visualize yourself surrounded by a pure, white light.
  • Feel it in every cell of your body.
  • Become aware of the crystal between your palms and send it thoughts of love.
  • Continue sending love to the crystal until you feel a response.
  • Thank it for being willing to help you.
  • Squeeze the crystal slightly with your hands and then open your eyes.

If you will be using your crystals for healing work, dedicate them to that purpose.  If they are for divinatory purposes, dedicate them to provide the best readings possible.

  • Stand facing east, with the stone or stones in your clasped hands.
  • Raise your hands as high as you can and say out loud: “I dedicate you to help me (balance my chakras, heal others, etc.).
  • I empower you to work for the best interests of everyone involved.
  • You are a force for good.”
  • Bring your clasped hands down to chest level and hold them at the level of your heart chakra.
  • Press the thumbs of your clasped hands against your chest and thank the gemstone or crystal for agreeing to help you.
  • Repeat this exercise whenever you feel it is necessary.

Place your crystals on a window ledge or shelf where they can receive sunlight and fresh air.
