How to Clear Your Crystals

Crystals are natural, energetic substances that can be used for healing, meditation, and spiritual practices. Over time, crystals can absorb negative energy and become less effective at their intended purpose. To maintain their energetic integrity, it is important to clear your crystals regularly.

There are many ways to clear your crystals, and different methods may work better for different types of crystals or personal preferences. In this guide, we will explore some of the most common methods for clearing crystals and provide step-by-step instructions for each method.

METHOD 1: SELENITE

Selenite is a popular crystal that is known for its ability to clear negative energy and promote a sense of calm and tranquility. It is also a self-cleansing crystal, meaning it can be used to clear and charge other crystals.

Overall, using selenite to clear your crystals is a simple and effective way to maintain their energetic integrity and promote positive energy. Here are the steps for clearing your crystals with selenite:

Materials:

  • Selenite wand or crystal
  • The crystals you wish to clear

Instructions:

  1. Take your selenite wand or crystal and hold it in your dominant hand.
  2. Hold the crystal you wish to clear in your other hand or place it next to the selenite crystal.
  3. Set your intention for clearing and cleansing the crystal of any negative energy or blockages.
  4. Hold the selenite crystal over the crystal you want to cleanse, moving it slowly from the top of the crystal to the bottom while visualizing the selenite clearing away any negative energy.
  5. Repeat this motion several times, focusing on your intention to clear the crystal.
  6. You can also place the crystal to be cleared on top of the selenite crystal for a period of time (at least several hours or overnight) to allow the selenite to clear and charge the crystal.
  7. When finished, thank the selenite crystal for its cleansing energy.

It’s important to note that while selenite is a powerful crystal for clearing energy, it is recommended to clear your selenite crystal as well. You can clear your selenite by using any of the other methods mentioned in this guide, such as smudging, sunlight or moonlight, water, or sound.

METHOD 2: Smudging

Smudging is a traditional Native American practice that involves burning herbs, such as sage or palo santo, to cleanse and purify a space or object. Smudging can be an effective way to clear your crystals of negative energy.

Materials:

  • Sage or palo santo
  • Matches or lighter
  • Abalone shell or heat-resistant bowl
  • Feather or fan (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Light the sage or palo santo with a match or lighter until it begins to smolder.
  2. Hold the crystal in the smoke, allowing the smoke to surround and penetrate the crystal.
  3. Use a feather or fan to waft the smoke around the crystal, if desired.
  4. Repeat with each crystal, focusing your intention on clearing away any negative energy.
  5. When finished, extinguish the sage or palo santo in the abalone shell or heat-resistant bowl.

Method 3: Sunlight and Moonlight

Sunlight and moonlight can be used to clear and charge your crystals, as they are both natural sources of energy.

Materials:

  • Your crystals
  • A windowsill or other location with access to sunlight and/or moonlight

Instructions:

  1. Choose a windowsill or other location where your crystals can be exposed to sunlight and/or moonlight.
  2. Place your crystals on the windowsill or in the designated location.
  3. Leave the crystals in the sunlight or moonlight for several hours or overnight.
  4. When finished, retrieve your crystals and thank them for their energy.

Note: Some crystals, such as amethyst, may fade or become damaged if exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time. Use caution when using sunlight to clear your crystals.

Method 4: Water

Water is a powerful natural element that can be used to clear and charge your crystals. However, not all crystals can be safely immersed in water, so it is important to research the properties of your crystals before using this method.

Materials:

  • Your crystals
  • A bowl of water (spring water or purified water is recommended)
  • A cloth or towel

Instructions:

  1. Fill a bowl with spring water or purified water.
  2. Immerse your crystals in the water, making sure they are fully submerged.
  3. Leave the crystals in the water for several hours or overnight.
  4. When finished, remove the crystals from the water and dry them off with a cloth or towel.

Note: Some crystals, such as selenite or halite, should not be immersed in water as they can dissolve or be damaged. Use caution when using water to clear your crystals.

Method 5: Sound

Sound can be used to clear your crystals, as it is a powerful vibrational energy that can break up stagnant or negative energy in your crystals.

 

Materials:

  • Your crystals
  • A singing bowl, bell, or chime

Instructions:

  1. Choose a singing bowl, bell, or chime that resonates with you and your crystals.
  2. Hold your crystals in your hand or place them on a soft surface.
  3. Use the singing bowl, bell, or chime to create a sound, either by striking or ringing it.
  4. Focus your intention on clearing away any negative energy from your crystals.
  5. Move the sound around your crystals, either by moving the singing bowl, bell, or chime or by moving the crystals themselves.
  6. When finished, thank your crystals and the sound for their energy.

Note: Some crystals, such as those with high vibrations, may be sensitive to sound and can be damaged by loud or intense vibrations. Use caution when using sound to clear your crystals.

Method 6: Visualizations

Visualizations can be a powerful way to clear your crystals, as they engage your imagination and intention to manifest your desires.

Materials:

  • Your crystals

Instructions:

  1. Hold your crystals in your hand or place them on a soft surface.
  2. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, focusing your intention on clearing away any negative energy from your crystals.
  3. Visualize a bright, white light surrounding your crystals, penetrating and clearing away any negative energy.
  4. Repeat affirmations, such as “I release any negative energy from my crystals” or “My crystals are clear and charged with positive energy”.
  5. When finished, thank your crystals and the universe for their energy.

Clearing your crystals is an important part of their care and maintenance, as it allows them to maintain their energetic integrity and effectiveness. There are many different methods for clearing your crystals, and it is important to find a method that resonates with you and your crystals.

By using one or more of these methods regularly, you can ensure that your crystals remain clear and charged with positive energy, promoting healing, meditation, and spiritual growth.
