1. THE CRYSTAL CHOOSES YOU.Hold each crystal in turn. Close your eyes and tune in to its vibration. You will find that you get a warmth and/or tingly feeling as you and your crystal connect. Some people find their crystal freezing cold. If you do not sense a physical change, which indicates a connection with the crystal, or an inner knowing that you are bonding, it’s likely that the crystal is not right for you. It may need further cleansing, or to be passed on to someone with whom it connects.
Cleansing crystals removes any energies they may have picked up on their journey to you. To cleanse your crystals, you can use the following methods:
- Water. Soak your crystals in a bowl of spring water for 24 hours for deep cleansing or hold them under a running tap for a few minutes, setting the intention that any negative imprints on them will be washed away. Don’t use this method on crystals affected by water such as selenite, halite, malachite, gypsum, pyrite, optical calcite, or turquoise.
