I try to charge up my most used crystals at least once a month. I see a Full Moon charge as a “reset” button for my crystals. Keep in mind your crystals harness energy, and clean the air. So, you don’t want to block the crystal from offering you the most benefits.
3 Simple Steps:
- Wash the Crystals. A simple rinse under the faucet is my favorite. I like to visualize the water washing away any negative energy held in the crystal. (FYI there are some crystals that should AVOID WATER–This list is not exhaustive, but it will give you a good start: Desert Rose, Halite, Himalayan Salt (Salt Lamps), Malachite, and Selenite)
- Full Moon Charge. Place your crystals outside under the moonlight. You do not need a special container; you can use a box, a cloth, etc. The ideal time to put them out is just after sunset. Some crystals should avoid sunlight so after dusk is a perfect time. I use a moon app to see when the full moon will be–Next is December 13th, 2016!! Get ready!
- Pull them in the next morning. You only need to charge your crystals for one night. After your crystals have their lunar charge they are ready to get back to work. Keep in mind that some crystals should avoid sunlight. (Here is a list of the most common used crystals that should avoid sunlight–this list is not exhaustive, but it will give you a good start: Amegreen, Amethyst, Ametrine, Apophyllite Green, Aquamarine, Auralite23, Celestite, Citrine, Fluorite, Hiddenite, Kunzite, Opal (will dry out), Prasiolite, Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Spirit Quartz, Super Seven, Topaz, Turquoise)
There you have it, the simple process of using the moonlight to charge your crystals. There are many other methods, but for me the Full Moon charge is very effective! I like that it can be used on every crystal. You might be thinking…”What if I miss the Full Moon?”; good news is the Full Moon energy lasts for 3 days after the Full Moon, so you have a few days to soak up the energy of the Full Moon!
I am sure you have questions…comment below. I want to continue to share my love for crystals and want to help you bring positive energy into your life!
Hope this post brings you closer to a happy, healthier–YOU!
