Don't forget to do these 2 things before working with a new crystal

You've bought a crystal, or you've gotten one in your Inner Light Botanicals skincare product, and you are excited and entranced by its beauty.. but now what should you do?

There are 2 things you need to do when you get a new crystal.

Clear it and Charge it. 

You know when you hang around someone who's negative and it starts to bring your mood down? This is a similar reason as to why we should clear a crystal. Clearing a crystal is important because it clears any negative energy it picked up - from where it was sourced, to the shop that sold it, to the many hands that have picked it up and handled it - as it made its way to you. 

Charging a crystal is like charging a battery. It's like how we get when we have a long day. By the end of it, we get tired. Sometimes the crystal doesn't sparkle as much as it used to, sometimes it doesn't have as much energy, and you need to recharge it.

 

Ways to Clear a Crystal:

Sage / Palo Santo / Incense - Pass the crystal through burning smoke of sage, palo santo, or high-quality, high-grade incense of sage, rue, frankincense or myrrh which have clearing properties.

Moonlight - On a Full Moon, put your crystals outside to soak up the energy of the moon overnight.

Reiki - If you are Reiki attuned, you can hold the crystal in both hands and pass healing energy onto the crystal.

Sound Vibration - Expose the crystal to a singing bowl, Tibetan Tingshas, tuning fork, or by chanting a mantra.

Selenite - Place the crystals on top of selenite for at least 2-4 hours.

Uncooked Organic Brown Rice - Bury the crystals for 12 hours. I find this one the most accessible way to clear my crystals. I use Lundberg Organic Brown Long Grain Rice from Wegmans.

 

Ways to Charge a Crystal:

Rainwater - When it rains, put your crystals in a bowl that collects rainwater. Let them soak up the ionic charge of the rain that replenishes crystals. Rinse and let air dry. Note: Some crystals will dissolve in water, like Selenite, so make sure you do your research about your crystals before using water to charge them.

Moonlight - On a Full Moon, put your crystals outside to soak up the energy of the moon overnight.

Reiki - If you are Reiki attuned, you can hold your crystal in your dominant hand to pass healing energy onto the crystal. (5-10 minutes)

Sound Vibration - Expose the crystal to a singing bowl, Tibetan Tingshas, tuning fork, or by chanting a mantra.

Selenite - Place the crystals on top of selenite for at least 2-4 hours.

Plants - Bury or place the crystal near a living plant or in a garden for 6-12 hours.
