Crystal Cleansing and Clearing

Since crystals are living entities and pick up and store energy, they too from time to time need to be cleansed for well being and maintenance. This is especially true for clear quartz crystals. However, all crystals should be cleansed periodically.

Ways to Cleanse Your Crystals

There are a few ways to cleanse and charge your crystals and gemstones. A few common ways to cleanse crystals include:

  • Water
  • Salt
  • Smudging
  • Candle
  • Other crystals
  • Sunlight
  • Sand
  • Visualization

Cleansing with Water

The first way to perform a crystal cleansing is with water. Holding the crystals under running water in your hands will help wash away negative energy that has been picked up by the crystals. The crystals will be recharged and reenergized.

Be sure not to use this cleansing method for crystals that crumble easily or are jointed. The water may harm these types of crystals. Selenite and Halite type of crystals should also not be cleaned this way. Both types dissolve easily in water.

Polished crystals can sit in water overnight. Try adding sea salt and lavender or sage essential oils to the water for added cleansing.

After the crystals have sat in the water overnight, dry them off with a polishing cloth. This allows you to polish the stones at the same time. Send your intentions to the crystals to pregrogram them.

Cleansing with Salt

Salt cleansing is especially good for crystals that crumble easily and cannot be cleansed in water. Use either sea salt or rock salt to cleanse the crystals. Leave them in a glass bowl or container in the salt overnight. Make sure the crystals are buried well in the salt.

In the morning, gently brush the salt off. Not completely removing the salt from the crystals could cause future damage to them so be sure to be thorough in this step.

Salt cleansing can be less damaging to crystals than water cleansing. This is generally one of the best and most efficient ways to cleanse crystals.

Cleansing by Smudging

Smudging crystals with sage can help clear away negative energy. Sage incense is thought to be the best option for smudging, but other incense options include:

  • White Copal
  • Dragon’s Blood
  • Frankincense
  • Yerba Santa
  • Myrrh

While smudging your crystals and stones, send your love and reaffirmation of their original programming. Be sure to program the crystals one at a time since no two crystals are the same.

Cleansing with Candles

You can also clean and clear crystals and gemstones by passing them through the light of a candle, preferably a white candle. White is the color of purification in chromatherapy.

Cleansing with Other Crystals

Crystals can be cleaned and cleared with other crystals. There are a few crystals that do not require cleansing and thus can be used to help cleanse and clear other crystals. Some stones and crystals that do not require cleaning or clearing include:

  • Carnelian
  • Kyanite
  • Cluster
  • Citrine

These crystals and stones do not require cleansing or clearing because they do not hold negative energy. To use these crystals and stones for cleansing, purifying, and clearing, place one in a bag of tumbled crystals and stones. If you keep one of these stones in a bag of tumbled or polished stones, you’ll never have to worry about cleansing, purifying, or clearing them.

Cleansing with Sunlight

Allowing your crystals to sit outside under natural sunlight is a way to cleanse, purify and clear them of negative energy.

Cleansing with Sand

If you happen to live near a beach, burying your crystals and stones in sand will also cleanse, purify, and clear them of negative energy. Keep the stones buried for a few hours and be sure to remember where they are buried. Leaving the crystals and gemstones in the sand will suffice their cleansing and clearing process.

Cleansing with Visualization

Visualization is another technique that is helpful in cleansing crystals. Visualize a bright light cast around the stones. Visualization is a powerful form of mental science.

In Conclusion

Cleansing and purifying crystals of negative energy doesn’t always mean you have to reprogram them of their original intention. Only reprogram your crystals and gemstones if and when you feel a need to. Otherwise, simply just cleanse, purify, and clear them whenever you feel necessary.

The crystals and gemstones will let you know when they want to be cleansed, purified and cleared. If you feel you are not in tune enough to listen to your crystals and gemstones convey to you that they need cleansing and clearing, simply cleanse and clear them every 30 days or 3 months. If your crystals and gemstones are used very often, they will need to be cleanse more frequently. Thank you for reading!

    Q: I have ordered the ANTI-NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ELIXIR and ANTI-ANGER ELIXIR. It says to take 1-2 dropperfuls. How? It says it contains crystals. I don't think I'm supposed to be ingesting crystals. The instructions are not clear for these products. What am I supposed to do with this?

    A:

    We explain what a dropper-full is in our "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE". When you squeeze the soft black top and liquid halfway fills the dropper (clear glass part), that's considered ONE dropperful. So basically, TWO dropperfuls means repeating the process (doing it twice). Does this make sense to you? Hopefully this explanation suffices for you; if not, please let us know. Now clearly the product does not contain actual physical crystals, only their properties or vibrations. The product is 100% safe to ingest! The new labels will reflect this language because many people are new to vibrational medicine and are a bit confused. We apologize for the inconvenience (confusion).

    Q: Is there such thing as, cleansing too much? From May - July I did a 40 day cleanse. The cleanse was pretty much ridding my diet of refined sugar, flour, alcohol, and animal product for much of the time. I just recently finished the Total Body Cleanse, and will be finishing my series of cleanses with the Total Woman's Cleanse. I personally feel fine, but people keep warning me about over cleansing. Also, bringing up the issue of your body being stripped of the good bacteria (along with the bad). But, I"ve taken probiotic pills (1-2) virtually everyday througout all of my cleanses. Should I be concerned with overcleansing? After this initial year of hard core cleansing, I plan to cleanse maybe once or twice a year. What are you thoughts on probiotics? Like I mentioned, I am taking pills. But I'd like to find foods that provide all that I need so I don't have to take pills.

    A:

    Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. Personally, I think many people put too much energy into worrying about something so inconsequential. If you're really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course). I have never taken an acidophilus product after a colonic. I know Nature and my body too well. I know that my body naturally produces everything sold by man in a bottle, and that is purchased from a health food store, including beneficial flora or bacteria. I simply drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable juice after my colonic sessions. If you're into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora. Other natural substances that will help the body to repopulate beneficial flora or good bacteria in the intestines include: Blue Green algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Irish Moss, Kelp, Bladderwrack, Dulse, Ginger, Cloves, Cayenne, Black Walnut Hull, and Carrot powder. Stop listening to these naysayers and keep doing YOU! You're on the right path!

    Q: My Dad is 90 and in a nursing home. He has been diagnosed with Papilloma in his mouth. He cannot wear his dentures and these wort like things are growing in his mouth. At this time it has not been cancerous. I believe a good cleansing would help him, but what can I get for them to give him there. I would have to get the Dr. there to allow the nurses to administer it to him. Also, I?ve you heard of the detoxification that is done by a foot cleansing, which is done by putting the feet in water with an electrical strip which has a mineral in the water that after about thirty minutes cleanses the body. I have had the experience and it is unbelievable what is removed from the body. My son, has liver was completely cleansed by this in three weeks. Do you think this might help Dad. I have been thinking about buying one of these machines and taking it there and trying it. If you have heard of this, can you recommend any one that is better than another. Also, any recommendations for herbs, etc. Thank you for any help you have for Dad. (He also has diabetes)

    A:

    Dad needs a serious cleansing! Especially his colon of which the mouth is connected as a part of the alimentary canal. If he has trouble swallowing capsules, our liquid Full Body Cleanse would be ideal for him (in addition to some of our new great teas).

    The foot detox works wonders. This is a powerful way to detox the body.

    Q: My son has been presented with tonsil stones. Some of the literature recommended salt water gargles. One recommended fenugreek tea. I was wondering what you might have available to rid him of this. Thanks!

    A:

    You should do the salt water gargle as well as the fenugreek tea but the problem stems from diet (especially refined grains). Go more fruits and vegetables in his diet! Make sure he chews his food well too! Give all of this a try!

    Q: Lately I have found myself taking cleansing herbs like Alfalfa, at night, is that Ok, or should I take the Alfalfa in the day. The reason why I take cleansing herbs in the night before I sleep, is because I thought that I would not be eating food, and I would be sleeping, so those 2 activities, I presume are cleansing. Can I take the FIBRIOD BUSTER at night, because they are cleansing herbs. I take the iron phosphate in the day.

    A:

    You're doing just fine, Beloved, with your regimen!

    Q: Hello, I've been following the cleanse as it says in the book. My baby now refuses to drink from my breasts I’m so upset. He's been crying constantly for two days. I've been ill and vomiting constantly for the same amount of time. This is no coincidence. Today I've only drank water as the thought of anything else makes me feel ill. Every glass of water I've drank I've vomited. I feel so weak and sad The cleansing is just potent on your system. Take a day or two off and resume the cleanse again but only by taking 2-3 capsules at a time, not 5 at a time. Yes, others have experienced what you're experiencing. Follow the advice above and you'll be fine. What are you eating also? I would like to know. Thank you!

    A:

    Please look up VOMITTING in the "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING"and read the article "HEALING CRISIS" in our articles section. Also, babies don't receive toxins from breast milk but they will receive the benefits and cleansing effects of the herbs as well.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: Can you please advise if the colon cleansing will have any effects if I suffer from loose stools rather than constipation? Have had issues with loose stools since my gall bladder was removed. Some improvement when I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and began taking Synthroid, but I still have issues with very loose stools and severe gas at times. Can this colon cleansing relieve these issues? Also, I have an allergy to nuts, all kinds. Can I still take the cleansing formulas that include the shells of walnuts; I believe is what it said. I must be very careful because I have been hospitalized after ingesting a very minute amount of what I think was peanuts. Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in trying your products but at the same time I must be careful with my allergies. Also I’m allergic to eggs.

    A:

    YOU WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. BLACK WALNUT HULLS ARE SAFE FOR YOU. IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A NUT, BUT THE HULL FROM IT. ALLERGIES ARE OVERCOME WITH DEEP CLEANSING ON THE CELLULAR AND TISSUE LEVEL. REMOVAL OF THE GALLBLADDER HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT OF WHACK. HOWEVER, THE BODY DOES HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMPENSATE.
