At an atomic level, our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We, on the other hand are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed and become unbalanced which makes us sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibration, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as constant negative thought patterns and suppressing emotions.
Crystals can pick up negative energies very quickly so it is important when you first obtain a crystal and even after you have been using it for some time that it is cleansed. Before it arrives in your at your home, crystals pass through many hands absorbing different energies that could affect your own balance. There are a number of cleansing methods, our top 4 are listed below. Depending on whether your crystal is raw or polished and also which type of crystal you should be careful and choose an appropriate cleansing method. For example, cleansing some crystals in water if they are metal may cause them to erode or for delicate crystals, they may disintegrate.
Leave your crystal to soak in seawater or a bowl of water mixed with salt. Fill a glass bowl and leave the crystal for anywhere between 1-24 hours, then rinse. This will recharge the energy.
Hold your crystal under a stream of water such as a waterfall, river or filtered water from the tap for a few minutes.
Using intention to cleanse your crystal pass it through the rising smoke of sacred herbs or wood such as sage, palo santo or insense sticks.
Play a Tibetan singing bowl, Crystal chakra bowls, a tuning fork, or a chime near your crystals, to cleanse and activate through soft sound vibrations.
It is very important that the crystals you use are charged when you first buy them and regularly for them to perform at their best. With experience, you’ll be able to feel whether or not your crystals need charging. Some crystals once cleansed feel ‘ready to go’, others still feel ‘flat’, like they need something else.
Crystals can be charged the following ways:
- Sunlight - Solar Energy
- Moonlight - Full Moon, New Moon
- Starry Sky - Solstice, Equinox
- Earth - Grounding
- Crystal Clusters, Crystal Plates - Clear Quartz, Citrine, Selenite
When buying your Blackwood Ave crystal check each crystal’s product description to find out which charging method is best for each crystal.
- Sit quietly in nature holding your crystal, relax and initiate deep belly breathing.
- Set an intention for your crystal silently or aloud (eg. I am grounded to mother earth and divinely connected to my highest self with white golden light surrounding me’)
- By setting our crystals with positive intentions, we are manifesting the world to return to us the positive life experiences that we seek.
- And remember– what we think or believe about ourselves and the world, becomes our reality.
Chakras are energy centers that are located down the midline of the body each related to an acupressure point. Ideally the upper chakras and the lower chakras should be balanced to ensure optimum health of those bodily parts. Each of your seven chakras is strongly connected with specific crystals which produce vibrations to help balance, align and cleanse your chakras. Check each crystal’s product description to find out which chakra it corresponds to.
Our bodies are electromagnetic organisms, there is spiritual, mental, and physical energy flowing from us at all times. By using crystals, it is possible to direct that energy towards the desired direction to achieve the best results.
