Taking good care of your crystals and gemstones can ensure a lifetime of flowing energy stays safe and beautiful.
Beautiful babies, so sparkly and full of energy “calling to me” from all over my house. I was having trouble figuring out how to care for my crystals and gemstones without it breaking the bank. Thank goodness for DIY tutorials. With a little tweaking and a trip to the Dollar Stores, I made these beautiful displays for my Gemstones & Crystals.
Before you put them on display, you should clear and program each one. It’s an easy process that doesn’t take much time. Afterwards, your “babies” will be re-energized and very happy.
Crystals retain energy, so you want to clear them when you bring them home, after they’ve been sitting around the house, or whenever you feel it’s time.
There are several stones that do not need to be cleared (and some that should not come in contact with water) Citrine, Carnelian, Clear Quartz, and Kyanite are several crystals that do not need to be cleared. Several stones that should not be submerged in water are Amber, Turquoise, Red Coral, Fire Opal, Moonstone, Calcite, Kyanite, Kunzite, Angelite, Azurite, Selenite.
There are other stones that are not listed, Google them to be on the safe side.
Clearing, Programing, and Charging
- Salt Water
- Burning Sage or Palo Santo
- Spraying Sage Smudge Spray or Palo Santo Spray
Say out loud: I clear this crystal from all unwanted and negative energy
Hold the crystal in your hand. Stand in natural light, either outside or next to a window. Say aloud, “I dedicate this crystal to the highest good. I ask that it be used in love and light.”
Then, program the crystal for a specific use, set your intention, (landing a new job, finishing a project, “healing”). While still holding the stone in your hand, visualize and feel what it would be like to achieve that intention.
Finish by saying out loud “I dedicate this crystal for the (say your intention)
Safely place the cleared and programmed Crystal under the moon or sun for several hours to charge them.
