Choosing, Cleansing, and Charging Crystals

Choosing, Cleansing, and Charging Crystals

When bringing crystals into your life, the first step is choosing them. There are a few intuitive ways to select crystals that resonate with you: Pendulums can guide you to crystals that have helpful energies. You can also use your hand, moving it over different stones and noticing which ones give off the strongest energetic pull. Or simply go with what draws your eye!

Once you've acquired some crystals, they will need occasional cleansing and charging to keep their energies vibrant. To cleanse, you can use sage, palo santo, salt water, sound from bells or singing bowls placed nearby, or simply set them in sunlight or on a larger charging stone like selenite.

After cleansing, charge your crystals by consciously projecting your intentions and desired uses for them. Holding the stones in your hands while focusing on their purpose infuses them with energy. Setting an intention gives them a job to aid with.
