Crystals have been used for centuries to help people find better health, happiness, and success.
Crystals are also believed to improve the lives of those around them by emitting a positive energy field.
They can be very helpful when faced with difficult situations or decisions in life as they help you feel calmer and more grounded.
But how do you charge your crystals? It’s actually not as complicated as it may seem! In this blog post, we will go over 7 easy steps on how to charge crystals so that they work their magic for you too!
How to Charge Crystals Step by Step
Set Your Intention.
To begin charging your crystals, you need to set an intention and be specific about what you want the crystal to do for you! For example, “I am going to charge my worry stone with the intention of releasing worries or anxiety.” Make sure that when setting your intent, it is something positive so that good things can come out of this process. It’s also best to be specific rather than vague, so that you know what energetically you’re asking your crystal to do.
Find a Place of Power
The next step is to find a place of power – or somewhere that feels really special and spiritually full for you! This can be anywhere, from the woods where birds sing to the top of a mountain. The more in tune with nature you are, the better off it will be for charging crystals! Once found, take some time to meditate and feel grateful about this serene space before continuing on with how to charge crystals. It’s also important not just finding any old spot because there needs to be something powerful around like energy lines or other mystical spots.
Collecting Your Crystals!
Firstly gather up all of those crystals which are either broken or have been chipped because we want to charge every single piece of our stone collection at least once before putting them back into storage (we recommend doing this about twice per year).
Consider Their Color & Shape.
Crystals are associated with different colors and shapes which may help determine what they’re best at supporting in your life like positivity (green), ambition (orange), acceptance/gratitude (blue), creativity (purple). The shape also matters as each one has a unique structure and texture which can affect its energy.
Pick the Crystal You Want to Charge!
There are so many types of crystals available today that it can feel overwhelming to choose just one which is why I recommend looking up your personality traits and finding what you need based on how they affect your life. If you’re not sure where to start then I suggest trying an amethyst or rose quartz as these two tend to work well with most people’s needs when they want more positivity in their lives.
Cleanse & Clear Your Crystals First!
One thing that we often forget about our crystals is making sure that they’re clean before charging them because energy from other users and environments can affect their power. To cleanse a crystal, fill up a bowl with water and add in about six tablespoons of sea salt. Swirl the crystals around for at least five minutes before letting them rest on top of an upside down plate to dry out (it shouldn’t take very long).
Washing the crystal in salt water or running it under flowing water will remove any residual energy left on the stone. It might be easier to use a bowl of saltwater, and place your stones inside so they are covered by the liquid for about thirty minutes before removing them, shaking off excess moisture and then placing them out again. This is also where you can add essential oils if desired—just make sure that you don’t use too many as this could lead to overcharging issues!
Your stones may have changed colors too! Crystals that were once dull looking can become bright over time as more energy is released into them after charging for longer periods of time than just one day. The color transformation happens because different minerals absorb light differently
Remember that some crystals should not be washed as they don’t react well with water. These include: amethyst, rose quartz and citrine.
Before starting your energy work to charge your crystals, it’s important for both yourself and the stones being charged to be grounded in order create a link between one another. This will provide stability and protection while also allowing for an easy flow of energies from nature into the crystal during its charge process as well as afterwards when it’s actually doing what they’re meant to do like heal someone who needs help getting their health back up again
Preparing Your Charging Space!
To begin charging your crystal it’s best to have somewhere that you can lie back comfortably – some people like to charge their crystals while they’re laying on the ground or even sitting cross legged but if this isn’t possible then just find something soft where you won’t be disturbed by anything else going on nearby. The second thing is making sure there are no electronics near by because these interfere with how your energy flows through and around your crystal.
Hold Your Crystal in One Hand When Charging Crystals!
We want to hold our crystals between the palms of both hands when charging them because this helps to amplify their energy as it moves through your body’s natural life force. It also creates a grounding effect which protects you from feeling overwhelmed by too much negativity or stress during the process.
– Step Six: Place the Crystal Over Your Heart To Charge Them With Love & Compassion!
The heart is where all love lives—including compassion for ourselves and others around us that are suffering in any way. This is why we should charge crystals with these two elements before using them on another person who needs healing (e.g., in a crystal healing session).
– Step Seven: Place the Crystal Over Your Third Eye To Charge Them With Intuition!
The third eye, or sixth chakra which is just above your eyebrows in the middle of your forehead, is where intuition lives. It’s not coincidence that you can see this area when looking into someone else’s eyes because this is one of the best places to connect with higher consciousness.
– Step Eight: Place The Crystal Over Your Throat To Charge Your Crystals With Self Expression!
The throat chakra, or fifth chakra just below your adam’s apple in this area, is where self expression lives. It also has a close connection with both creativity and prosperity as it lies in the power of both communication and creativity.
How to Charge Crystals Conclusion
Now your crystals are charged you can feel the effects of these charged crystals within yourself. You can also feel their effects in your environment and on other people, as it is believed that our minerals charge all things around them!
How do you activate crystals?
This is a very easy and fun way to charge your crystals! Make sure not to forget any of these steps as this will make it much more difficult for your crystal to be charged properly.
Place the crystals in an open area with exposure from the sunlight or moonlight, where they can soak up nature’s energy. This could mean keeping them outside on a sunny day (or if you live close enough). It also means placing them under direct light from lamps at night. The sun represents masculine power while the moon symbolizes feminine power so exposing both types of stones to each other will help balance their energies out.
How to Charge Rose Quartz
To charge Rose Quartz you can place your crystals in a bowl of water to soak up the sun’s rays. If you do not have access to direct sunlight, place them outside on top of a windowsill on a sunny day or under light from lamps at night. Rose Quartz is an excellent stone for helping with emotional healing and love issues so it will benefit greatly by being charged this way!
How to Charge Selenite
Like Rose Quartz, Selenite benefits from both moonlight and sunshine exposure but has different needs when exposed to these energies. To charge Selenite during daylight hours leave them out in full sun as long as possible until they become warm; then let them cool before bringing inside again at dusk.
How to Charge Amethyst
To charge Amethyst you should expose them to moonlight, so place your crystals outside on a windowsill or balcony where they can catch the most light.
How to Charge Amber
To charge amber you should expose their inner surfaces (the side that touches skin) to sunlight and wear it for at least an hour each day. You may also want to consider adding some essential oils like lavender oil which has been shown in studies to have antidepressant effects; this will help with depression as well!
What crystals Cannot go in water?
Not all crystals can go in water. For the ones that can, make sure to rinse them off and clear any dirt or debris before charging. Boiled water is a good way to start if you don’t want to use tap water.
How do you use crystals at home?
To use crystals for healing at home, simply place them on or near the afflicted area. If you have a crystal with both negative and positive properties, place it accordingly – use the one that best fits your need.
What are some common crystals for manifesting?
Some of the most commonly used healing stones at home include amethyst, rose quartz, jasper, smoky quartz and black tourmaline; these can be found in nature as well as at any metaphysical shop you may visit. The type of stone is not important so much as its energy resonance to help balance out what’s disharmonious within your body. Amethysts harmonize emotions while carnelian brings light into ones life through creativity (which might also cause an increase in one’s creative ability).
What crystals should I start with?
When looking for your first crystal, some good beginner crystals are lapis lazuli, smoky quartz and prehnite.
