Clearing your stone
Cleaning and clearing your crystals is very important. Depending on where you purchased the stone from, there may have been several people handling the stone, thus subjecting the stone to multiple energies, good or bad. Here are a few ways to do this:
1. Use sea salt.
Sea salt and water are greats way to rid your stone of unwanted harmful energies. If the stone is not brittle, using sea salt will not harm the stone. When using this method, I leave the stone in the water overnight. If your stone crumbles easily I will explain the best way to clean it later in the article.
You can add sage, basil or lavender to the water to enhance the cleansing affect.
And as Isak Dinesen once wrote:
2. Use running water.
Holding the stone under running is also a very effective way of cleansing your stone. As you do so, put intention in the stone by asking the Universe to remove all negativity. I usually imagine a ray of white light around the stone cleaning and filling it with wisdom.
3. Use other stones.
Stones like Carnelian and Clear Quartz clean other stones. It’s actually really simple. All you have to do is add them to the bag where you store your stones.
4. Try smudging.
I use sage for many reasons in my home. Mostly, I use it when I need to clear out old stagnant energy in my home. You can also use sage to clear your healing stones. While smudging your stones, it’s important to put intention in to them. Asking for protection or dedicating love to them is the best medicine.
