how to clean crystals


Take the crystal to the sea, cleanse in sea water, allowing the water to wash over it then energise in the sun
Smudge the crystal with mpepo, sage, sweetgrass or cedar. This method of cleansing has been used by Native American & African tribal cultures for centuries Soak the crystal in sea salt for at least 7 hours, then energise in the sun.

Caution: Salt or abrasive substances may mar the surface of the softer crystalline forms – however, this will not affect the crystal efficacy. Place the crystal on a large crystal cluster or on another mineral (which is an energiser) for at least 12 hours. Soak the crystal in brown rice for 24 hours, the rice balances and centres the energy, removing the negativity, while dissipating and transforming the negative to positive. After the soak, the rice is purified and energised and is quite wonderful to eat! Beam white light from your 3rd eye and surround the crystal while sweeping away any negativity to a black hole which is filled with white light. The white light in the black hole transforms the negativity to a positive light energy such that the negativity is released. Maintain concentration and intention. Cleanse the crystal in flowing spring, river, lake or even tap water, then energise in the sun. Water is an universal cleanser an is effective in cleansing undesirable energies in all physical forms
Surround the crystal with white, violet or golden light intending any negativity to be transformed into positive light energy.
