Crystals for balancing chakra's

You can use crystals to help balance your chakra's. You are best off going with what crystals resonate for you, the ones you are drawn to use.

Cleansing crystals

Before using your crystals for the first time, make sure you cleanse them. Cleansing your crystals remove any energies they picked up before arriving with you. There are many different ways in which you can cleanse your crystals.

As a crystal healer these are the ways we are trained to cleanse crystals before using them , between clients and any time we feel called to do so:

The common one everyone seems to know about....

The full moon cleanse. Leave your crystals outside on the night before, the night of or the night after a full moon. Leave your crystals in a safe spot where they will not get wet, but also in the moon light if possible. Leaving them on a window sil does noot give them the full cleanse effect. Remeber to set an intention when doing so. Something like 'I place these crystals under the moon light to be cleansed and rid any energies they maybe carrying'. With everything you do, intention is super important.

The less common but super powerful is the Sun cleanse! The sun is life force energy, the life giver so cleansing your crystals under this powerful energy just makes sense!! Check your crystals are sun safe first, as some do fade in direct sunlight. If your crystal is safe to do so, leave your crystal in sun beam for a minimum of 5 minutes. Red, orange and yellow coloured crystals are the best to use for this method. Don't forget that intent!

The smoke cleanse is another powerful way to cleanse your crystals. You can use whichever you are drawn to use sage, sandalwood or palo santo. Burn your stick of choice then bath the crystal in smoke for at least 5 minutes. Again, don't forget the intention!

The earth cleanse. Another powerful cleanse is the earth cleanse, this is a deep cleanse. Find yourself some dry dirt, maybe a plant pot or some soil. bury your crystals in the dirt on a new moon with intentions of cleansing your crystals. Then leave your crystals buried until the next new moon. This is a long cleane but a deep one and a good way to recharge your crystals too (charging them is not the same as cleansing them!)

Running water is another great way to cleanse our crystals. Ensure your crystal is safe in water as some can become brittle in moisture. Place your crystals into running water such as a stream, river or spring. Set the intention and leave your crystals in the water for at least 5 minutes.

As always - use the method you are drawn too. There is no right or wonrg way, there is just a right way for you!
