When it comes to cleansing/clearing, go with a method that works for YOU. It is also important to enjoy clearing your crystals and have fun. It shouldn’t feel like a chore or something you HAVE to do because it’s what is expected. Some of the various ways you can cleanse/clear crystals:
Moon light – full or new moon is best but crystals LOVE lunar energy from any of the phases. Great for charging, especially the New Moon phase.
Selenite plates/sticks – In order to vibrate at their highest capacity, your crystals need to be cleansed and charged. Selenite doesn’t need to be charged, and it will amplify the energy of all crystals set upon it. The pure, high vibrational energy of a Selenite plate or slab is like liquid light. Combine them with other crystals to amplify the desired intention.
Smudging – one of the most common ways to clear your crystals and you can use White Sage, Palo Santo or incense.
Rice – brown rice is another great, inexpensive way to clear your crystals. Throw the rice out after you’ve cleansed your crystals.
Sound – You can use singing bowls, singing pyramids (these are amazing!) tingshaw bells, tuning forks or even some YouTube clearing videos.
Sunlight and water are very harsh methods in my opinion. Sunlight can fade your crystals and water can damage some crystals. Salt can also be damaging because if the salt gets caught in a crack, it can attract moisture, which can damage some crystals.
