Cleansing Crystals

Begin by cleansing your crystal with a method that resonates with you, such as smudging, sage burning, or using the power of intention to clear away any negative energy from the stone to increase a crystals positive energy flow.

Recharging Crystals

After cleansing your crystals, it is important to recharge them in order for them to remain powerful and effective. This can be done through placing them outside under moonlight or sunlight for 1-3 hours depending on the size of the crystal. Be sure to limit exposure to sunlight. Do not leave crystals in the sun for more than 3 hours.

Protecting Crystals

To ensure that your crystals stay safe and secure while not in use, wrap them up in a soft cloth and store them inside a jewelry box where they will be protected from dust and dirt particles which could damage their properties over time.

We often tell our customers to leave their crystals out in a bold, where they can see them and work with them. They are meant to be used.

Setting Intentions With Your Crystal

Once your crystal has been cleansed and charged properly it is time to set intentions with it! Take some time to focus on what you wish this crystal will bring into your life; whether it’s health, wealth, love or something else entirely! Visualize these things coming into fruition within yourself before holding onto the stone tightly whilst repeating these positive affirmations out loud three times each day.

How to recharge your lucky stone

You can cleanse your lucky crystal by simply placing it in a bowl of sea salt for 24 hours or running it under cold water for 2-5 minutes. This will remove any negative energy that has been absorbed from being around people and other objects. After cleansing, the stone should be recharged by leaving it out under the light of the full moon. Moonlight is known to be full of divine energy, which will help your crystals become strong and powerful again.

Attracting luck needs your permission

Powerful stones are useless if you don't allow yourself to accept their positive energy. When choosing a stone for luck, make sure you give yourself permission to trust your intuition when selecting one; this will allow you to connect with the right crystal that will work best for your desired outcome.

Note: Never put crystals in salt water, and, some crystals are too soft to be placed in water at all. In our store we often recommend cleansing with sound healing or smoke form burning sage as a safe alternative to recharging with water.
