How To Cleanse Healing crystals
Crystals are tools that can be used to help release negative energy in order to heal physical and emotional afflictions.
But how do healing crystals work exactly?
We get this question a lot!
Radiating out of all living things are their electromagnetic fields. The electromagnetic field of one living thing interacts with the electromagnetic field of another changing the vibrational frequencies.
When we are in the presence of someone or something that is vibrating at a higher energy frequency than we are, our electromagnetic field wants to catch up. You’ve likely experienced this if you’ve ever noticed yourself being inexplicably drawn to someone or something.
Healing crystals work with our energy field to absorb, direct and focus energy within our body. When we consciously interact with healing crystals they quite literally lift our vibration.
Different crystals emit different vibrational frequencies based on things like their color, size, healing properties and composition. Crystals positively interact with our energy field to relieve stress, boost our energy, clear our mind or offer protection. When we incorporate crystals into our meditation and mindfulness practices they help us connect thoughts with action.
When we wear our Spirit Rox (or any crystal healing bracelets) for long periods of time without cleansing them they absorb energy from us, which over time can change their vibrational frequency. Crazy, right? To help re-tune their vibrational frequency, it is important to periodically cleanse (or charge) our bracelets. Regularly cleansing or charging our crystal healing bracelets will help clear stagnant energy so we can reset our intentions.
There are many ways to cleanse crystals healing bracelets, but here is a list of our three favorites...
- Charging Crystal Healing Bracelets Under A Full Moon
One of our favorite ways to cleanse our energy healing bracelets is under the white light-energy of a full moon. During a full moon, we place our bracelets outside in a safe place or in a window sill that moonlight shines through. When we retrieve them in the morning, we simply reset our intentions and slide them back onto our wrists.
- Cleansing Crystal Healing Bracelets In Sea Salt
Sea salt is the most traditional purifying agent. It dispels any sort of negativity and is a physical and psychic disinfectant. We cleanse our energy healing bracelets in a few different ways using sea salt*. The first is simply to fill a bowl full of dry sea salt and place the crystal healing bracelets inside. Bury the bracelets down into the salt, and allow the bracelets to rest in the sea salt for a few hours (or as long as overnight if it’s been a while since they have been cleansed).
When they are done cleansing, simply remove the bracelets and rinse them under tap water. You can also do this indirectly by placing your bracelets into a bowl and then placing that bowl into the bowl of sea salt. In this case, there is no need to rinse the bracelets. *Be sure to use sea salt and not table salt. Table salt contains aluminum and other chemicals.
Another favorite sea salt method is to use salt water from the ocean. Salt water can be brought home from the sea in a jar, or bracelets can be gently rinsed directly in the ocean.
- Smudging (Cleansing Crystal Healing Bracelets With Palo Santo Or Sage)
A quick and easy method for cleansing our energy healing bracelets is to cleanse them using the smoke from Palo Santo or Sage.
Palo Santo, also known as the “Holy Stick”, is a wild tree native to Central and South America. It has been used for centuries to repel negative energy and cleanse the energetic field. Palo Santo is rich in brain oxygenating terpenes such as Limonene and a-Terpineol, which have uplifting and positive effects on the mind and body.
Sage is a member of the mint family of plants and is revered for it medicinal and culinary uses. Burning sage to clear the energy of a room or an energetic field is often referred to as smudging, which is an ancient Native American ritual.
In our opinion, there is really no "wrong" way to cleanse energy healing bracelets with Palo Santo or Sage. Simply light your Sage Wand or Palo Santo stick and use your hand to fan the smoke over your bracelets. If possible (though not necessary), we recommend placing bracelets on an elevated surface like a cooling rack so that the smoke can circulate all around the bracelets.
There are many ways to cleanse Spirit Rox healing bracelets. While these are just a few of our favorite methods, we encourage you to do your own research and discover which cleansing method feels the most in tune with your personal energy.
