Amethyst

Amethyst is a calming, spiritual stone and great against headaches. That can help you sleep and dream. One night I had some trouble to sleep so I took 10 amethyst and laid them inside my pillow, I fell asleep almost instantly after that but oh my those dreams felt real, I woke up in panic. So a good idea is not to bring to many or to big ones ;).

How to cleanse and recharge your crystals

 

Why should you even cleanse your crystals you may think, well I think that when you use your crystals, they absorb negative energy. Negative energy have low vibrations and crystals (when they are at their optimal state) have high vibrations. Low and high vibrations can not exist together, so crystals will try to raise the vibrations and their own vibrations will lower over time. To raise their vibration to their optimal you need to cleanse them.

img_1101

Crystals that you work with or keep with you often should be cleansed more regularly than the ones that may simply be sitting on your desk or in a box. However, it is nice to give all of your sparkly friends a nice energetic tune-up every now and then. Use your intuition on how often your crystals need a little extra care.

I personally usually cleanse my crystals in salt water or bury them in Himalayan salt or if I need a quick fix I burn some sage or other herb and make the crystals go trough the smoke and if it’s summer I go outside and bury them in some dirt or sand.

To recharge them I usually put them outside in the night for absorbing some moonlight or if it’s a sunny day I may put them on a plate with salt and place them in the sunlight (Moonlight for feminine power and sunlight for masculine power).

But there are many ways to cleanse and recharge crystals so I thought I’ll make a list for you guys!

Sunlight – just put them out in the sunlight for some hours (in the window works fine as well) Some crystals are not suitable to put in the sun ex. Amethyst, Ametrine, Aquamarine, Citrine, Celestite, Rose quartz, Kunzite, Flourite, Opal, Smokey quartz, Topaz, Spirit quartz, Turquoise.

Moonlight-Fullmoon is the most effective one, but any day you can see the moon is great I think.

Water -The best would be natural (running) water, but tap water works as well. You could either hold them in your hand with the intention of cleansing them for some time until they feel cleansed, or you could put them in a bowl with water. Some crystals can be damaged or dissolve in water like Desert rose, Halite, Malachite, Selenite.

Saltwater – just put some (Himalayan) salt in a bowl with water and place your crystals in it. but be careful, salt could damage some of your crystals. Follow your intuition.

Salt or Brown rice – just bury your crystals and when you are done throw away the salt/rice. Some crystals could be damaged by salt.

Sage or Incense – Burn some incense and hold them in the smoke or waft the smoke over your crystals. Sage and other incense also clear the space/room from bad energy.

Sound – Have the crystals in the vibration of the sound. Play Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, tingsha, bells or drums near the crystals.

Buring in the earth – Mother earth helps the crystals to re-tune into their natural vibration. Remember to mark where you buried them so you find them later.

Flower petals – Bury your crystals in flower petals, you could use any one you like. different flowers have different healing properties, roses for love, lavender for relaxation and so on..

Clusters or druse or geode – place your crystals on your cluster, druse or inside your geod overnight for cleansing is also one method.

Self-cleansing crystals – There are some self-cleansing crystals that doesn’t need any cleansing at all, such as selenite, citrine, kyanite and Amethyst/quartz clusters.

Essential oils -You can use different essential oils for cleansing, put just a few drops on your hands and “massage” it into your crystals.

Cleansing spray – There are some different cleansing sprays made with intention/essential oils/herbs or all of them that you can simply spray on your crystals and let dry. You could also simply use rose water to spray on them.

Crystal grids

I’m totally hooked on crystal grids right now so I tought  I would learn you a little bit about them 🙂 First of all I always follow my intuition when I do a grid so that’s rule number one ;P But otherwise I think you can do grids (almost) however you like as long as you hold a clear intention of what you would like to do.

 

When you make a grid you usually use some kind of crystals and a bigger crystal for the center piece, then you place them in a geometric form that you think suites it the best (spiral, circle, flower of life and so on) Then you can use essential oils, herbs, cards, colors and more to make the grid even more beautiful and powerful.

Today I did a crystal grid for the sacral chakra and creativity since it felt like I need that in my life right now so here is a pic of that: img_0955

Before I did this grid I cleansed the room and myself, got into my meditative mode and started listening to what I need today, my intuition told me I need to bring more creativity into my life and since the sacral chakra stands for that I pulled out my seeds of shakti oracle cards for the center piece. Then I took my Rose quartz (for self-love) and laid that one in the middle. Carnelian on each side of that because they balance the sacral chakra and brings creativity, self-esteem, personal power and courage. Besides that a Tourmaline, who bring inspiration, grounding and creativity. Beside the Tourmaline there is some Citrine, for creativity, happiness, self-esteem and awareness. On the other side of the Citrine there are some Hematite, also for grounding and courage.
After that I took 4 small Citrines and placed them in a smaller circle inside the grid.
Then I felt I need to make this grid even more powerful so I took 4 quartz points and pointed them into the middle. And then I took some rose petals and some orange essential oil and sprinkled it around, after that I activated it with a selenite stick 🙂

 

In this video one of my role models Hibiscus Moon describes in a very easy way how to do a grid and how to activate it:

Here are some other grids I’ve made:
