How to cleanse your crystals

Cleansing your Crystals

Crystals need to be cleanse regularly to restore its healing power and to eliminate any negative energy that is absorbed into the piece of stone. It is likely that your crystals may absorb vibrations and negative energies not only from you, but from anything in the environment where they are located. Below are 2 ways for crystal cleansing. You can find all our crystal cleansing tools here.

 

1. Using Singing Bowl

Frosty Quartz Singing Bowl

 

The singing bowl is a ritual object used in the Himalayan region (Tibet and Nepal) by Buddhists since ancient times. When "played" with a wooden stick, the metal bowl emits a resounding sound that assists in meditation and releases mantras. Singing bowls are traditionally constructed of seven metals: gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, tin and lead, which correspond to the seven planets (sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, respectively).

Creating a contemplative and calming sound, singing bowls are used throughout the Himalayas in monasteries and homes to aid meditation. The sound of a singing bowl can be used to mark the beginning or end of a meditation period, or during meditation to focus the mind. It is also believed that mantras chanted during the making of a singing bowl are released into the universe when the bowl is played.

Place the crystal in a singing bowl and play the bowl for a few minutes. To play it, hold the bowl gently in the palm of your hand, allowing the body of the bowl to vibrate freely. With the wooden stick (puja), rub the outside rim in a circular motion, keeping an even pressure. Gently increase the speed as the bowl begins to vibrate, and as the sound grows. You can also tap the bowl to begin the vibration.The lovely crystal bowl music is very powerful and the sounds release by the bowl will resonate throughout the surrounding, filling the surroundings with good vibrations.

As the strong vibration of the pure crystalline sound of your crystal singing bowl fills the crystals, it will drive out any negative energy. This will lift the vibration of any of your crystals that are close by.

 

2. Mineral Water and Himalayan Salt

Himalayan Salt

Cleanse crystals with pure mineral water or dilute Himalayan salt water is another way to eliminate bad energies and vibrations from the crystal. Using running tap is not a good choice as it may contain some chemicals such as fluorine which can disturb the inner positive energies lie within the crystal.

 

3. White Sage Leaves
