Crystal Cleansing Rituals with Smudging & Selenite
Crystal Cleansing Rituals: Smudging and Selenite
Charging and cleansing your crystals from any prior energy is essential. Every shift exposes your stones to energies that are likely not to be aligned with your own.
When you use your crystals for healing purposes, the stones absorb and redirect the negativity that you release. It is best to assist your crystals in restoring their natural state, and you can do this with cleansing rituals.
Read on to learn about our two favourite crystal cleansing rituals and how to charge your crystals with your intentions.
WHITE SAGE OR PALO SANTO
Sage and Palo Santo are very different when it comes to cleansing your crystals. Sage moves energy out, and Palo Santo carries energy in. Using Sage is best if you are cleansing your crystals, and Palo Santo is best when wanting to charge and program your crystals.
When smudging with Sage, complete outdoors or close to an open window, this will allow the negative energies to disperse.
Ignite the tip of the sage with a flame and move your stone through the smoke. Allow each stone to be covered in smoke for about 30 seconds.
Selenite is the ultimate crystal to cleanse your other crystals, particularly selenite charging bowls. One of Selenites best properties is that it purifies and amplifies the energy of other crystals, magnifying and cleansing the energy of anything that is placed upon it.
Selenite does not need to be cleansed, and it transmuted negative energy naturally. Place your crystals on the selenite for a few hours or use them daily for continuous cleansing.
HOW TO CHARGE YOUR CRYSTALS WITH INTENTIONS?
There are many crystals with various unique powers, and learning about them before establishing a relationship with them can be very beneficial.
Are you seeking a crystal for protection from negative energy? A tool for reiki, mediation, intention setting or rituals? Do you want to attract good luck, and money and abundance? Identify your intention as preparation is the key when wanting the best outcome.
Sit quietly with your crystal and communicate your intentions and desires while feeling the powerful vibrations.
