When was the last time you walked through a supermarket, found some grapes on the floor and picked them up and ate them? I didn’t think so – that would be inviting disaster and would be just plain foolish.
Yet every day people buy crystals and jewelry and gem stones and wear them and hold them irregardless of where they have been. Crystals pick up energy. Crystals hold energy. They’re used in electronics for that very property. Your crystal may have been mined by someone who was overworked and angry. Your crystal may have been packed and shipped by someone who had just suffered a great emotional loss. Your new jewelry may have been handled by a store clerk who was impatient and anxious.
Do you know what you received along with that great ring? – maybe stress, or anxiety, fear or confusion. Since there is so much of that stuff floating around on a daily basis, you may not have attributed it to the pretty thing you were wearing.
Are you stuck with that stuff? Absolutely not – how to cleanse crystals of negative energy is not that hard. There are many methods available from burying it in sea salt for a few days to putting it in the freezer for a few weeks or rinsing it under a stream of running water for a while.
One of the most important considerations is the loving intention that is coming from your heart while you are doing those things. You are sending vibrations to the crystal and the crystal is receiving.
If you are an energy healer, or know of someone who works with energy, they can clear your jewelry by holding it and running energy through it. That is the quickest, easiest, and also most efficient method, particularly if your crystal is holding a lot of heaviness.
You can do a lot on your own, however. First of all use your intuition and see how the piece feels to you. If it came to you as a loving gift and has not encountered any heavy vibrations on its journey to you, just hold it and love it and thank it and you are good to go. You may want to rinse it off in clear water, let it re-energize in the sunshine for awhile, and then sit with it and send those loving thoughts and intentions I mentioned earlier. Tell it what you would like it to do, and thank it for that.
Thank your black obsidian for keeping you secure and grounded. Thank your rose quartz for helping you feel loved. That your aquamarine for letting you be your best, kindest self. Thank your malachite for sending healing energy to wherever you need it.
If you ever wear or hold anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, then don’t use it until you explore the ideas above, and if it still doesn’t feel right, see an energy healer. Your crystal will thank you for it.
