Crystals can be our best friends! They are stunning as jewelry. They are beautiful as home décor. And most importantly, they are also working so hard for us, as they absorb the negative energies from our emotions, vibes and environment. That’s why it’s a great idea to give our best friends a little spiritual cleanse once a while. Then, they can go back to their original high vibration level, because they work the best to help us in their highest vibration. And this is a fantastic way to show our beloved Crystals our appreciation and gratitude.
When you purchased a crystal online or in the store, it has been absorbing many other people’s energies in the outside world, therefore it is important to perform a spiritual cleansing ritual before working with your new friend.
Crystals that work with you the most required more frequent cleansing than the ones that are stored in a box. You can determine how often your Crystals need a spiritual cleanse by using your intuition.
There are several different methods you can use to cleanse your crystals.
Here are 6 recommended ways:
1. Running Water
Crystals can be easily cleansed by placing them under running water for a few minutes. It can be under running tap water or in a river.
By cleansing the Crystals with this method, it removes the negative energies in our sparkly friends. Do not use salt whilst cleansing your crystals. As water can already act like acid to certain minerals, salt will cause the water to be more corrosive and damage your crystals.

For Crystal jewelry, it’s safest not to use this cleansing ritual as the water might damage the metal of the jewelry. Please refer to other methods as listed to prevent damage to your Crystal friends and Crystal jewelry.

And with your mind eyes, shower your crystal with the divine white light. Your healing Crystal will be ready to work with you again with a minute of your positive intention, love, and care.
Crystals enjoy being bathed in the moonlight; especially during a full moon. The full moon emits a strong energy that lasts for 3 days, so if by chance you do miss the night of the full moon, you can always catch those moonlight rays before or after the day of.
Programming Your Crystals
After cleansing and recharging your Crystals, make sure that you program them. The best way you can connect with your healing friends is by affirming your intentions or praying over them. To affirm your intentions, you must clearly state your thoughts, emotions, and intentions to the universe; that way your Crystal will be willing to work for you with its maximum potential.
