I’ve been working a lot with crystals lately for energy healing. I don’t even know how many crystals I have although I use a couple regularly for healing sessions. It’s the full moon in Aquarius this Monday, July 26, with strongest energies at 930am here in Manila so if any of you reading this has crystals it might be a good time to clean them, energize them under the full moon and make a wish. All crystals are wish stones, in other words you can “program” them to emit an energy that may enable certain situations you want to manifest in your life. For example, if you are looking for a change in career or financial stability a citrine or a quartz with chlorite or any green crystal will be best for this. Citrine for example is readily found (though there are a lot of fakes) and it, along with amethyst are the most readily seen around a person’s house or office-sometimes with the owner not even being aware of their powers.
So if you have a small crystal, and when I mean small I mean it can actually be carried in one hand then you may want to get it cleaned up and ready to moonbathe. First of all, fill up a white bowl with water and rock salt or sea salt. Sorry, iodized salt will not do and one other important thing, make sure that the white bowl will PERMANENTLY be used for cleaning, do not use it for any other purpose because the “dirt” it absorbs from the crystals will remain there. After filling the bowl with water and a healthy dose of sea salt, make sure it’s fully dissolved you can dunk in your favorite crystal, or two, for as long as they don’t touch and leave overnight. In fact, if you have a large enough windowsill or a balcony you can leave the crystal outside-just make sure it doesn’t fall.
The next morning you may see little black spots on your bowl, that’s why the whiter the bowl the better to see how much dirt your crystal has accumulated. You can now choose to leave the crystal in the bowl under the moon for another night, or remove the crystal from the bowl and leave it out til Monday morning, removing before 937am.
When you have the crystal in your hand, make a wish. An example can be, for prosperity or abundance is: “I program you to emit an energy to bring forth financial abundance into my life. As you do this you will immediately recharge from your surroundings not from other people or other crystals. All of this for my higher good, I live in gratitude and love. ” or something similar but always in a state of gratitude and love so all intentions are on a positive note.
If you want to make a good crystal investment that can enhance the all around energies of your house or office then I would definitely recommend a geode. This one pictured is made of amethyst which is a great all-around cleanser, healer, and even protector. It transmutes negative to positive and helps calm emotional and mental stress (doesn’t everyone need that especially in the work place?) Here’s a bonus, the one’s I found at a collector’s house actually contain cacoxenite (if you look at them closely they glitter like gold flecks in between the amethyst points) which is known to be anti-aging, among other things. So, not only is your stress level reduced, you can actually affect your cellular memory and combat other ailments.
These geodes don’t need cleaning since they are pretty much self cleaning and you can even store your crystals in them instead of going through the whole salt and soak ritual.
Don’t be intimidated by a geode though, I know it looks like someone broke off a part of a crystal cave, well, they did sort of, but the benefits of having one of these in your home or office are innumerable. If you’re not ready for a big crystal such as this, then enjoy a little me time with your handheld crystals and feel the energy surge through them when you make your wish 🙂
If you don’t catch the full moon, no worries. You can soak your crystals overnight at anytime (make sure you use the same bowl over and over) and just lay them out at night or even in the early morning for a little rejuvenation. Since I use mine regularly I try to do this once a month, but the others that I leave in my room I do this when I remember or when I “feel” they’re getting dirty and heavy. New crystals (be they given or bought) should ALWAYS be cleaned first, because they will carry the energy of the person you bought them from or who gave them. Unless of course the one who gave them already knows how to clean and program, it never hurts to ask! There are also crystals that clean other crystals such as selenite, which are, conveniently self cleaning and delicate so do not soak them in salt water, or any kind of water for that matter.
